WIP ME INSPIRED
The Naughty Whispers Book Club idea came from a late night chat with fellow Aussie author, Eden Summers. It was freakishly awesome how well we meshed. One great idea after another flowed through our keyboards and stories about members of an online erotic book club were born. Cowboys, soldiers, bikers, rockers and even a sheikh or two were all in the mix with the group of friends that dare each other to turn their dreams and fantasies into reality.
Spreadsheets were created, plans were made. We were on fire. All that was left, was to write the first book.
I’m not ashamed (now) to admit I had performance anxiety. Big time.
How was I ever going to write a book that did justice to the ideas that we’d just come up with? After a few false starts, AKA Ctrl-A-Delete, Suzette and Zane’s story came to life. Hours of researching, looking at image after image of sexy military men and beautiful women, and a search history that would make the FBI’s ears prick up, I had the info I needed.
But, the ultimate inspiration for this story, came from the support and general awesomeness of my writing buddies. Their willingness to offer advice and expertise with their red pens gave me the kick in the pants I needed to not give up and let Operation: Sexy Soldier see the light of day.
— Excerpt —
SuzieQ: What I wouldn’t give to have a night with Drake.
MiaGurl: Here’s your chance!
LuLu: You don’t need the yellow pages for Dial-a-Hunk, you’ll have a room full of them.
MiaGurl: You really do have a duty to us, the people living vicariously through you, to go flirt and fondle a soldier tomorrow night.
LuLu: You have to put on your sexiest little black dress, go to the benefit and hook up with a sexy soldier! Just like the book, answer your call to booty!
SuzieQ: Sure. Uh huh. I’ll go, pick up my very own version of Drake, have wild balls-to-the-wall sex all night long and give you all the gritty details in the morning.
LuLu: Photos please. Not of his balls on the wall, but we need pics.
MiaGurl: Hang on, I’ll take the photo of his goods, but preferably while they’re hard and he’s laid out on the bed *wink wink*. Your mission, and you have to accept it, is to secure a hot military man for a night of hard-core sex. As proof, you have to have photographic evidence of him (balls or no balls) and you wearing his uniform.
LuLu: Operation Sexy Soldier. I love it.
SuzieQ: See – You girls are cray cray!
LuLu: No, you’re cray cray if you don’t seize this opportunity. I DARE YOU!
Well crap. She was never good at refusing a dare.
Operation: Sexy Soldier
A dare is a dare after all.
Suzette Miller’s mission, issued by fellow members of the Naughty Whispers Book Club, is one she can’t refuse. She must find a sexy soldier and burn up the sheets in a night of scorching passion. It’s been her fantasy since forever, but what if her military man is also the man who can break her run of bad luck in the dating world?
As a Marine, Zane Cooper can handle intense situations. But when it comes to Suzette, and the lingering feelings she inspires, he’s in unfamiliar territory without a tactical handbook. Though his life’s compass is spinning out of control, the right direction could be closer than he thinks.
Drawn together by lust and pulled apart by assumptions, can they work together to complete their mission for love?
About the Author:
Once upon a time, in a land called Australia, there lived a delightful young girl named Bianca who loved to read. As she grew older, her sarcastic tendencies and warped sense of humour became evident, as did her preference for raunchy romancex. Now, as well as reigning over their quarter-acre kingdom with the handsome Prince who stole her heart and feeding their ever-growing children, she not only reads everything she can, but pens her own deliciously sexy stories.
