Summer’s Sexiest Settings Blog Hop

Welcome to the hop and I’m glad to be a part of it.

What is the sexiest setting in a book encountered? One of the more recent settings is The Notebook by Nichtour imageolas Sparks and the flashback to the days as young lovers. Lol! Not the end of the life scene.

In my novel Boarding I include a snippet of Central Park in Manhattan. Central Park is definitely a sexy place, an oasis of quiet in an otherwise quite frenetic urban setting.

Congrats to KC and the trilogy Year of the Billionaire.

Glad to be a part of it.

Blurb for Hooked

hunt_smTwo people, an ocean, a big fish and a small monkey. She doesn’t trust herself and he can’t remember when he trusted anyone.

(Lara) A spoiled man-whore was a bad idea even for a girl who majored in bad ideas. It was the monkey’s fault I didn’t take my own advice. Mrs. Dalloway caught me way off guard. She stripped him down to his bare humanity and wouldn’t let me throw a blanket over that naked soul. Everything he did was contradicted by all that he was. The little white-faced princess on his shoulder never missed a chance to point that out. Mrs. D was a shameless charmer but honest to her bones. She forced me to look at the truth of him until the reality of Morgan had me hooked.

(Morgan) I agreed too quickly. I thought she’d be a punctured, tatted up, street-smart bitch with the kind of balls it took to hang in a major league pressure cooker of a go-to South Beach restaurant. The only thing I guessed right about was the ‘nads. She had ’em but the package was all wrong. There were waves where I expected spikes, soft where I was looking for hard. Then she schooled me about dear dad’s precious art collection and I realized street wasn’t her only kind of smart. Mrs. D–who knows every wart on my blemished spirit–surprised me with a rare nod of approval. It’s usually a good idea to listen when your best friend has something to say. Even if your best bud is a monkey.

Hooked (The Hunt) is a new adult romance that unfolds in a trilogy, each featuring a high energy adventure that escalates Lara and Morgan’s relationship with physical and emotional challenges. It is intended for mature readers due to explicit content and language.

  1. In the book I am currently reading, Arctic Prison, there is a scene on the Small World ride at Disney World. Smokin!

  2. The sexiest scene to me would be on the shore by the ocean at night, with the moonlight shimmering off dampened skin, and the chance of getting caught by people taking nighttime strolls along the beach.

    It really depends on the characters and the situation. KA Mitchell’s opening sex scene in COLLISION COURSE takes place in an ambulance, and the frenzied, cramped atmosphere (plus the obvious taboo) really sets the tone. On the other hand, one of the most beloved scenes for me is in a very ordinary setting: when Dante and Griff end up on Dante’s couch in HOT HEAD, the familiarity and unfamiliarity bump up in really touching and sexy ways!

    I have never been to Central Park, but have seen pictures and it looks lovely. I enjoy the H/h being alone and watching their relationship develop, whether they are surrounded by people and just in their own little bubble or stranded on an island. 🙂
    Thanks for sharing and for the giveaway.

      Thanks, Tina. I’ve been to Central Park a couple of times and a large park in an urban setting has an appeal in a different way than a setting in the countryside or mountains.

  5. One of the sexiest setting I have read is on a motorcycle with the heroine and her 2 heroes. Very Hot.
