Behind the Scenes
by Emily Quinn

Researching settings for  was lots of fun. I wanted the story to be fun but I also wanted to ensure it felt real using places anyone could go to. There are a couple of scenes in the story that take place at a trendy restaurant in Downtown L.A. Here’s the inspiration for those.

For the main part of the story I wanted to add a bit of glamour and mystery and why not have Angel and Fernando fly to Capri, Italy? If this isn’t breathtaking then I don’t know what is :-)

Then, I wanted to end the story at a chic place in Malibu, CA (near where the characters live). Isn’t this fun?

Angel Jones is a career-driven woman at the top of her game with a big problem: a wickedly handsome boss. It is impossible to get him out of her mind, so her friends talk her into using someone else’s invitation to an exclusive dating service. It’s a dare she can’t resist.

Fernando Durante knows lusting after someone at work is not an option. He has managed to avoid direct contact with her for years, but thanks to a recent promotion, the witty goddess reports directly to him. When a friend emails him an invitation to an exclusive dating service, Fernando accepts against his better judgment.

Will Angel and Fernando let their hearts guide them?

Excerpt from

Steam rose as hot water covered his body from head to toe, and Fernando’s thoughts wandered back to her. He needed to get Angel Jones out of his head. Lusting after someone at work wasn’t an option, though his dick begged to differ.

Angel’s name alone gave him a hard-on every time. He wrapped a hand around his cock and stroked his length. She’d lived in his dreams for the past three years.

It had been a long while since he last dated or bedded anyone. Truth be told, ever since he’d crossed paths with Angel, she’d remained present in his mind. He placed a hand on the shower glass for support, his other hand stroking his cock faster. Whenever he closed his eyes, her stormy, ice blue eyes, black cherry hair, and her voluptuous, baby pink lips came to mind.

It had been easier when she didn’t report directly to him, but thanks to his boss’s latest organizational restructuring, she did now. Being in the same room with her was pure torture. The way she narrowed her eyes at him when she didn’t agree with something, or how she bit her lip when a new idea came to mind, did him in every time. It took all of his will power not to walk up to her, pull her into his arms, and have his way with her. No matter how much he wanted to do that, he wouldn’t. Sexual harassment litigation wasn’t part of his career goals.

Regardless, he couldn’t ignore the attraction much longer. Fernando wanted to feel her soft body against his, her legs wrapped around his waist, and her muscles clenching every time he drove into her tight, slick channel. He’d make her take all of his length until she shuddered and surrendered to him. With a growl, he let his own orgasm take him.
