Welcome to my stop on the Scintillating Sunday Showcase blog hop! Today I chose eight paragraphs from the first Candy Kisses Gang novelette published two years ago. We’ve decided to re-release it as a special stand edition to wet your appetites for the full story featuring my favorite foursome. I’ll set this one up just a tad. In this scene, Candice Monroe meets her nemesis Darren Bryant for the first time after she finds out he is the reason she wasn’t able to expand her restaurant and catering business into the space next to her current location.
I hope you enjoy this sneak peek and check out the other authors participating this week! The hop is open to all romance and erotic romance authors of all heat levels so there’s something for everyone in this weekly adventure!
Have A Naughty, Naughty Christmas
He leaned forward and rested his elbows on the table. “I want you, Alexander and Gabriel come to my estate on Maui. I’m having a gathering of some of the most influential people in my circles and I need a caterer who can deliver anything from comfort foods to nouvelle cuisine. This can be a huge opportunity for the three of you to impress some of the richest people in the world with your creations and with yourselves.”
Her mind raced. This could be the chance she was looking for to get the business more exposure. However, something still nagged at the back of her mind. “What’s in it for you? If we agree to the partnership, it’s a win-win scenario for all of us, but what’s your personal agenda here?”
“Besides your catering duties, the three of you will be my guests and stay in the mansion with me. Your free time is your own, of course, but I’d like to be able to spend time getting to know you better.” His eyes bore into hers as another grin took shape.
She involuntarily clenched her thighs together as the telltale signs of mutual attraction rushed out of her pussy. There was no denying the man before her was sexy as hell. The look in his eye made her feel like he wanted nothing more than to rip her clothes off and take her right then and there.
She cleared her throat and stood up from the table. “I’ll need to talk it over with my partners before I give you our answer.” She held her hand out to him.
He stood, took her hand in both of his. “I’ll need to know about Hawaii as soon as possible. My private jet leaves for Maui the day after tomorrow.” He leaned in and whispered in her ear, “I’d really love to have you on my arm in paradise. Just think of all the fun all four of us could have on my private beach.”
She pulled back to look him in the eye. “What makes you think I want to spend my free time with anyone other than my partners?”
His smile widened. “What makes you think you’re the only partner I’m interested in? Think about it, Ms. Monroe. This could be a chance for you to live out some of your wildest fantasies.”
Candice Monroe’s restaurant, Candy Kisses is the place to be during the holidays in the Detroit Metro area. The menu of old classics and one-of-a-kind specialties keep customers coming back for more. As a result, she and her partners don’t have a moment to breathe let alone act upon the growing sexual tension building between the three of them.
Former Marines and sometimes lovers, Alexander Rabinov and Gabriel Jacobs help keep the restaurant running smoothly. Alex’s culinary skills and Gabe’s expertise as pastry chef combine well with Candice’s vision for the future of the business, and her secret desires.
Just when the men are about to act on their feelings and whisk her away for a much needed vacation, international playboy Darrin Bryant calls with an offer they just can’t refuse. He’ll front the money for Candice to expand the restaurant if they spend the holiday weekend catering a gathering at his home. The offer came with one more stipulation. Candice is to act as Darrin’s companion in front of the guests, but he made it clear he wished for more—from all of them.
Will Darrin’s proposition come between the trio, or help them fulfill their wildest naughty Christmas fantasies?
This one will be available this week! I’m so excited to be able to celebrate a little bit of Christmas early…hehehe
Now, here’s the list. Get to hopping!
See you soon,
