WELCOME AUTHOR JESSICA JAYNE: BOARD STIFF!

I would like to give a big thank you to Carlene for hosting me on her blog today!  Thank you so much!  I’m here today to show off my first ever Evernight Publishing Romance on the Go book entitled Board Stiff.  It’s part of a three book series entitled Taking Advantage and it follows three men, who all sit as members on the board of directors of Advantage Insurance Company.  All three guys are extremely good-looking (obviously), at the top of their game in their careers and single – each for their own reasons.  Each man has his own book and love interest, but you will see John Dorsey, Greg Snow and Mark Olson in all three books… in some respect.

I get asked all the time where I come up with the ideas for my stories.  And it’s funny because a lot of times, they just appear (which is why I carry around a notebook in my purse, so I can write them down before they just as quickly disappear).  John and Elizabeth’s relationship came to me one day as I sat outside a boardroom preparing for a presentation to the board.  Because my mind is always conjuring up a romantic story everywhere I go, it did not take me by surprise that I was all of sudden hearing these characters in my head.  That’s just my life.  (Even if the timing isn’t always ideal)  I folded over the corner of my notes I was bringing into the presentation and jotted down the scene that came into my head… and there it was… John Dorsey and Elizabeth Wright’s story came to life.  Hope you all enjoy it!

Jessica, thank you so much for sharing that part of your writing process with us.  And you are very welcome!  It’s my pleasure to be hostessing you and your first ROTG  title which is also an Editor’s Pick!  Congrats!  Let’s give everyone a sneak peek…

Blurb:

John Dorsey’s life is good.  He is the owner of Dorsey Construction.  He’s the youngest person on the board of directors for Advantage Insurance Company.  He lives on the beach.  And he knows he can have any woman he wants.  John’s got the world at his fingertips… except he’s yet to find a woman that stimulates both his body and mind.

Elizabeth Wright worked hard in a large Tampa law firm making a name for herself, but it came at the expense of her personal life. When Advantage Insurance Company offers her a job as corporate counsel, Elizabeth cannot turn it down.  The thought that she can have a successful legal career and a life excites and intimidates her.

But when their worlds collide one day in the Advantage board room, neither Elizabeth nor John knows what’s hit them.  All they know is they can’t stay away from each other.

Excerpt:

“Are you seeing anyone?  Sleeping with anyone?” he asked further.

“What?” she said, standing up from her chair.  Her face was incapable of hiding her shock at his questions.  Her green eyes were wide.  Her lips parted.  “What sort of questions are these?”  John’s stride made short use of the distance between them.  He stood directly in front of her, cornering her behind her desk.  He looked down into her green eyes.  They were gorgeous… she was gorgeous.  And he had every intention of claiming her.

“Answer my questions, Elizabeth.  Are you seeing anyone?”  He watched as her eyes widened even further with shock at his determination to get answers to his questions.  Nervousness flittered across her face, but her breath came out in short pants as if his close proximity affected her.  He watched as her chest rose and fell with each breath.  God, he wanted to feel her body against his.  He just knew she would feel perfect against him… in his arms.

“Your questions are inappropriate,” she replied sharply.  Despite her body giving her attraction away, she held firm.  He liked that.  He liked a woman that wasn’t too easy of a catch.

“I agree,” he said, impatiently.  “They are inappropriate.  I need the answers nonetheless.”

“Why?” she asked.  Her gaze scanned his face as if looking for the answer to her question.

“Answer me,” he demanded.  His hand reached out and caressed her cheek as if to soothe the harshness of his words.

“You are way out of line, Mr. Dorsey,” Elizabeth said.

“Yes, I know,” he said a little softer this time.  His fingers tucked a few strands of her hair behind her ear.  His gaze dropped to her bared neck.  He had to fight the urge to nuzzle the spot just below her ear.  “But I need to know if there are any obstacles to making you mine.  Are you seeing anyone?”

“No,” she whispered.  “I’m not seeing anyone.”  Her lips parted for a moment before she bit down on her lower lip.  That was almost his undoing.

“Are you fucking anyone?” he asked.  She released her bottom lip and sucked in a breath when he asked that question.  Her gaze fell from his eyes to his lips and then to her hands.  He placed his fingers under her chin and tilted her head up to meet his gaze again.  He wanted to see her eyes when she answered him.  There was heat in her gaze, and that thrilled him.

“No, Mr. Dorsey, I’m not fucking anyone at the moment,” she said.  Her voice was hard, but he heard the desire in it and that snapped his restraint.  His hand weaved into her hair until his palm gripped the back of her head, pulling her into him.  His mouth slammed down on hers.  Her full lips were soft and pliable, and his tongue flicked out over her lips to taste her.  She tasted so sweet…like candy.

Author Bio:

 

I am a born and raised small town Ohio girl, who moved to the Sunshine State after graduating from college. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in English because I could not imagine doing anything else but reading and writing. It is such a pleasure to be able to share all the stories in my head!

In the journey of life, I also became a wife and a mother of three children. So, life is always an adventure. But the love of writing has never died.

My favorites:  I love to read and write… obviously! But I also enjoy all sports, especially college football and the Ohio State Buckeyes!  Go Steelers!  Go Rays! I LOVE to travel… LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to travel. And I love sharing my love to travel with my children. I love to drink Teavana teas! I love a good glass of wine, especially if it comes from a bottle made by the FOOLS wine club… yep, I’m a member of that!    I love hanging out with my family and my friends!  Big fan of music, but love nothing better than putting on my jean shorts, tank top, cowboy boots and hat and watching Tim McGraw belt it out!  I’m a sucker for a cowboy hat!  
