Mid Week Tease is back with a hot new look. I love it! Since I’ve been sharing bits of Untangle Me on Sundays. I think I’ll share something from TAKING CHANCES today. It’s been a long time since I shared from this erotic romp.
This snippet is from the first chapter and follows after my last Mid Week Tease from TAKING CHANCES. Lydia has just been picked by Jake for a new project. She’s entered the room where they’ll be working. While she waits for him, she tries calming her nerves. Enjoy.
The ravine behind the building fascinated her. She took a moment to appreciate the sprawling landscape, the varying shades of green, plants and mosses covering most of the ground. Everything was coming back to life after a long winter. Several trees lined each side of the ravine, and one had fallen across the middle. An eagle soared across the sky, the hypnotic flap of the wings filling her with strength and serenity. The peaceful view slowed her raging thoughts and brought quiet peace to her senses.
Finally. She wanted to laugh for getting carried away to her dream land earlier. Naughty fantasies didn’t belong in the middle of the work day.
Her fingers grazed the cool surface of the window, and her imagination thrust her into her earlier fantasy.
Oh boy. Jake’s not even in the room yet, lol. If you want to know what happens next. I’ve posted the whole first chapter of TAKING CHANCES over at D. Renee Bagby’s.

5 Star Review: “it’s well written, there’s no slw moments and it’s packed full of hot sexual tension”
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.
