Mid Week Tease with Taking Chances

Mid-Week-Tease-Button-211x300Welcome to my first Mid Week Tease. There are several very talented authors teasing today. You’ll find a link to all of them at the bottom of this post.

I have another first coming up on Friday, August 23rd. My debut, TAKING CHANCES releases from Evernight Publishing.

In this tease: While Lydia waited to find out who Jake would select for his project, she got lost in one of her fantasies starring the man himself. Keep in mind, Lydia’s in a board room surrounded by her colleagues and Jake. The fantasy that proceeds this tease can be found in my post here. Enjoy. 🙂

“Lydia!” someone shouted.

Something pushed her elbow, and it fell awkwardly from the table, releasing her from her inner thoughts. Everyone at the table stared her way.

“Thanks for rejoining us. Clear your calendar, and meet me back here in a half hour.” Jake locked his gaze with hers.

“Yes, Sir … I mean, okay, I’ll be here.”

She couldn’t handle his powerful expression and dropped her stare to the table. It was too intense, him standing there like an unyielding statue. Had she said something wrong? Before an idea could enter her mind, he stormed from the room. The rest of her department followed him like nothing tremendous happened. Just like that, they went on with their day, talking about lunch plans and other mundane things. Lydia, on the other hand, couldn’t move.

It had been a split second, but his eyes had narrowed in on her and dimmed to a shade darker than black. It was intimidating, but she desperately wanted to see it again.

by: S.J. Maylee

Erotic Romance with D/s

Length: Novella

Release Date: August 23, 2013

Publisher: Evernight Publishing


Lydia’s father walked away from her when she was eight. She’s struggled to not let him affect her, but fears she wasn’t loveable enough to make him stay. Jake wants to love one woman, but after scaring the last woman he met outside of the club, he doubts he has the right. She protects her heart by sticking with her fantasies, and he lives by a set of rules that excludes women who choose a vanilla lifestyle.

The two will be kept in a conference room working together until their special project is complete. If Lydia and Jake hold tight to their bland lives, they’ll always yearn for love that is out of reach. But together they can find common ground, passion, and a reason to take chances. Once they discover the grand possibilities of the love they desire, they find themselves in the very place they tried never to be again, facing unguaranteed love.
