Marisa Clair wants to get her artist dreams back on track after a life detour. That means no partying, no shopping…and definitely no men to distract her. Should be easy, but there’s something about her hot and exceedingly uptight boss and she can't seem to stop herself from ruffling Mr. Tall, Dark and Irritating.
Financial consultant Luke McNamara lives his life strictly by schedule – his OCD simply won't allow him to do anything else. And the very last thing he needs is a sassy blonde putting lipstick on his collar and messing with his routine. She annoys the hell out of him so why can’t he stop thinking about the color of her panties…and how free he feels when he’s with her?
Marisa and Luke’s plans to steer clear of one another are shot to hell after a hot office encounter. Now the two of them will have to learn to get along as they face a much more permanent reminder of their lack of self-control – a pregnancy.
I will admit, I haven’t read any of Jackie’s books. I promise to correct that problem this year. But I hear she’s very funny and a little crazy. I mean that in a VERY good way. Jackie’s latest book from Entangled, Indulgence is Talking Dirty With the Boss. Now, when I asked Jackie to write a guest post for my blog, I didn’t tell her what to write about, I just left it up to her own imagination. My, my where did her mind go???? Apparently, Jackie is ALL about talking dirty in the workplace.
Getting it on with the Boss
Hi everyone and thanks for having me on the blog today. I'm continuing on my theme of offices romances, specifically getting it on with the boss. Now obviously this is a bad idea for a number of reasons, especially if it all goes horribly wrong, amiright?? Not all office romances do go wrong but clearly there will be problems when an office relationship becomes personal.
But what if your boss is a fabulous guy, hot to end all hot, and he's sworn to keep work right out of it? And you haven't met anyone else who's as amazing and into you as he is, and he gets you completely? Do you think you could handle the fallout if it goes bad?
Say you do it and you cross the line. And it's amazing and so is he and you can't believe your luck. How would you handle the relationship at work? In Talking Dirty with the Boss, Luke has rules against workplace relationships, but say at your workplace, there are no rules. Would you be loud and proud about it? Manage the politics – because there will be politics, you know it – and deal with it up front? Or would you keep it under wraps? And if you keep it under wraps, how long for?
What about if it wasn't you but a work colleague who was getting it on with the boss? Would you say something to them? Or would you let them manage it themselves? Do you actually know anyone who's had an affair with the boss? Did it work out or did it all go horribly wrong in the end?
Jackie has been writing fiction since she was eleven years old. Mild mannered fantasy/SF/pseudo-literary writer by day, obsessive romance writer by night, she used to balance her writing with the more serious job of librarianship until a chance meeting with another romance writer prompted her to throw off the shackles of her day job and devote herself to the true love of her heart – writing romance. She particularly likes to write dark, emotional stories with alpha heroes who’ve just got the world to their liking only to have it blown wide apart by their kick-ass heroines.
She lives in Auckland, New Zealand with her husband, the inimitable Dr Jax, two kids, two cats and some guppies (possibly dead guppies by the time you read this). When she’s not torturing alpha males and their stroppy heroines, she can be found drinking chocolate martinis, reading anything she can lay her hands on, posting random crap on her blog, or being forced to go mountain biking with her husband.
