I’m a sucker for a man in uniform…any uniform. In my short story Special Delivery I indulged myself by making the hero a delivery man. And a hot one, at that!
This story has always been one of my favorites, it’s got a strong heroine, sexy alpha hero, and there’s a bachelor auction scene (an event I’ve always wanted to attend). The excerpt I’m sharing today is when the hero and heroine first meet, he’s naked and she’s got a camera! But, she’s not a creeper, she’s a photographer. Regardless, it was a super fun scene to write and I hope it’s as much fun for you to read 😉
Curvy and proud of it, photographer Corina Saunders seeks to empower other females by shooting boudoir photos of plus-sized women in her home studio. When a charity needs a photographer to photograph twelve sexy men for a hunk-of-the-month calendar, she gladly volunteers her services. Sparks fly during the photo shoot when she snaps pictures of sexy delivery man Zach Moreno’s strategically placed package. When they cross paths again at a charity ball and bachelor auction, Corina surprises everyone—including herself—by placing the highest bid on Zach, the sexiest bachelor up for grabs.
Thanks to the frenzied atmosphere of the auction—and the complimentary champagne—she’s helpless to fight the insane chemistry between her and Zach any longer and the two celebrate her winning bid. With a bang. Afterwards, Corina’s mortified that she had sex with Zach in a cramped supply room at the bachelor auction. How can she face him again? Then again, after bidding an incredible six-thousand dollars to win him at the auction, she can’t afford to skip out on the date. Besides, the sex was unbelievably hot, and she really shouldn’t deprive herself that one indulgence. After all, what harm could come from one innocent picnic in the park lunch date?
Maybe her feverish symptoms were due to the fact that she’d been photographing hot, half-dressed men all day. So far, it had proved to be the best job she’d ever had, and she wasn’t even getting paid for
“Oh, you mean the package wasn’t hiding my package, huh?”Zach asked her with a laugh.
