Hi, Janie! Thanks for hosting me here today at Desire and Craving.

Breathless Press is one year old this August and I’m honored to say that a year ago on August 19th, my short story Clandestine Eyes was first accepted. It was the first short erotica I'd ever written but I loved every minute of it. The challenge of writing erotica is pushing beyond the limits of my shyness to create compelling stories that are a real turn on without being gratuitous.

The year has gone by so fast but what a ride. I worked to understand the intricacies of promotion while giving my autograph to friends and family who proudly printed out their copy. I'm so glad I took the chance on Breathless Press for my short stories. They've proven themselves to be visionaries in the ebook industry. Recently, Clandestine Eyes was turned into an audio book.

Clandestine Eyes is a sizzling hot read hidden behind an innocent cover. A little like me, I suppose. Lol. The story involves covert government agents, which I've always loved the idea of those who work in the shadows to protect others. A story in the spirit of La Femme Nikita and the like. The main characters, Rob Larsen and Coreen Evans are characters whose passion for each other rivals their love of the job.

Without further ado, here’s an excerpt of Clandestine Eyes for everyone's enjoyment.

Clandestine Eyes Excerpt:

Rob’s large warm hand slid beneath her blouse, caressing her overheated skin, before drifting lower to toy with the waistband of her slacks. Coreen didn’t feel the tug of her zipper or the undoing of the button to her slacks before his large fingers stroked the outside of her damp panties.

A jolt of pleasure shuddered through her. She leaned her head back and moaned as he pressed two fingers hard against her clit, the thin material of her panties just barely keeping him out.

Rob nibbled on her ear, then asked, "Does it feel good?"

“Oh, Yes.” Still, she wanted more. Coreen needed the raging hunger inside her to be satisfied. "More."

He slid his hand inside her panties, pressing the length of his middle finger inside her. Tremors of pleasure rocketed through her, causing her belly muscles to twitch. He inserted a second finger, drawing a deep moan from her.
