I decided to try the traditional route on Rebound Baby, Too. I’ve submitted it for publication and hope to hear back soon that they love it and want to publish it and pay me millions… Ok, so maybe I’m getting ahead of myself.
Here’s my blurb…
Office flirtations lead to a night of unparalleled sex for Anna and Jake. Just when Jake is ready to cuddle, Anna kicks him out letting him know that it was a one-night stand. Jake recognizes that Anna is perfect for him; she’s young, vivacious, but not ready to settle down. He was blown away the first day they met, her quick wit and husky voice enchanted him. He just needs a little time to convince her that they are perfect together.
Anna can’t help but fall in love with Jake. He’s ridiculously attractive, has a great job, a passionate and generous lover, and doesn’t live with his mother. On paper he’s perfect. In real life he’s a little bossy, a lot intense, and when Anna realizes she’s pregnant she’s not sure that she’s ready to handle all of him and morning sickness too. She’s not sure she can even trust her instincts when it comes to men, after all her first husband was Prince Charming right up until she was no longer the damsel in distress. Jake proves to her he’s worthy of her trust, wanting her to be his partner in life, sharing their future, not controlling it.
And here is a sneak peek at their first interaction…
I found Anna in the copy room, bent over and dissecting the machine in order to remove a paper jam. Anna was dressed prim and proper from the ankles up. A grey skirt of sensible length paired with a light blue blouse and pearls. However, the four inch black heels made my mind wander to what it would take to simply walk up behind her, hike her skirt up and take her. She was the perfect height, the perfect angle. Was she wearing stockings? A thong or lace panties?
I was being a douche.
“Can I help?” I asked politely, begging silently that she would stand up and make the mental images fade.
She squeaked and stood up quickly, “You startled me.”
“Do you need any help?”
She raised an eyebrow, “Are you insinuating that my copier repair and paper fluffing abilities aren’t up to task?”
I grinned, “Yes.” I liked that smart mouth. I wondered what it would taste like.
She blew her hair out of her eyes, “Ok, if you can get eight copies of this color-copied, collated, and stapled I will concede that you are the Conquistador of Copies.” She handed Jolie’s presentation to me.
I chuckled and couldn’t help but wink at her. “I see. You think flattery will blind me to the fact that you’re having me do your work?”
She tilted her head and winked back, “If necessary, I can offer fresh baked cookies as payment.”
I closed up the machine and waited for it warm up, “Bribery and flattery. So, public relations comes naturally to you then.”
“I’m afraid so.” She admitted. “Can I watch how you manage this feat?”
“Sure.” I moved over leaving a respectable distance between us as I taught her how to do color copies. As it whirled to life she murmured thanks.
“I appreciate your help.” She stepped back putting more distance between us.
I nodded, “Anytime.” As she picked up her copies I winked, “I prefer white chocolate macadamia nut.”
“Sure thing, Conquistador.” Her husky voice left me unable to articulate. It was if her voice stole my soul.
Phew – I just love Anna and Jake!
