Book Tagline: 10 sexual encounters. No strings attached.
Great job. Great pay. No life—including her on again off again sex life. Then one night, she is plunged into darkness with a handsome stranger.
Bradley Craig is the new head of DWD’s research division, and this ad man has secrets of his own. Much lauded in his field of consumer behavior, there’s a darker side to the attractive ad man—his erotic, list-maker side.
Gracie and Bradley are assigned to work on the biggest new business pitch Darcy Wexler Dean will be in all year, and the two tangle immediately, battling copy concepts and focus group findings along with their explosive attraction to each other.
Bradley has a proposition: they make a list. Ten erotic sexual encounters, no strings attached. What’s at stake? Two Super Bowl spots and two fragile hearts.
Stars twinkled high above darkened buildings. “Bradley,” I sighed, “you know we’re not good for each other.”
He returned to me eyes blazing. “On the contrary, we’re more than good. We’re smoking hot, you know we are.”
I waved at a passing cab and Bradley nailed my ride with an ear-piercing traffic-stopper. The taxi pulled over to the curb ahead of us.
“You’ll go far in this town with that whistle.”
He opened the door, grinning that infuriating grin of his. “If I can’t interest you in sex with a stranger, we could get to know each other while we’re having sex.”
I stared at him. “What do you have in mind?”
“Let’s say we make up a mutual list—ten sexual encounters.” His raw exciting gaze had returned. “Pure sex. No dates. No expectations. No attachments of any kind until the list is complete and then we—”
I stepped off the curb and hesitated. A faint smile tugged at my lips, betraying my own intimacy issues. I turned back. “And then we walk away.”
His tall imposing frame filled the space between the cab and the open door. “I was about to say, then we renegotiate.” He placed a soft kiss on my forehead. “Maybe it turns out we actually like each other.”
He almost had me with that line. “I’m seeing someone.” I lied.
“So am I—kind of.” If I had lied, he had just kind of lied.
“I can’t do this.”
“Yes, you can.” He raised both brows. “Aside from the blackout, did you enjoy yourself tonight?”
“You know I did.” I backed into the cab.
He rested his palms on the roof of the vehicle and leaned in. “Well then?”
“We’ll see.” He flashed an electric smile.
“That wasn’t a yes.”
“But it wasn’t a no.”
Jillian Stone was born a storyteller. A skill that got her into considerable trouble as a youth until she solved the problem by becoming an advertising creative. And the career did seem to suit her as she won many national ad awards including the Clio and the New York Art Director’s Club Gold. What more could she ask for? Create her own worlds? Become goddess of her own universe? Yes! So, she began to write fiction. Her Victorian Romantic Suspense novel AN AFFAIR WITH MR. KENNEDY won the 2010 Golden Heart and sold to Pocket Books. Her sexy, controversial steampunk novel THE SEDUCTION OF PHAETON BLACK won the 2010 Romance Through The Ages Erotica category and sold to Kensington Brava. Jillian lives in California and is currently writing a new spin-off novel to the Gentlemen of Scotland Yard series as well as book #2 in the DO IT LIST series.
