About the book:
Title: Bachelor's Special
Author: Christine Warner
Publisher: Entangled: Indulgence
Release date: June 10, 2013
Saute, simmer, and flambé…
Jill Adgate wants three things from life: a successful catering business, the devoted love of an exceptional man, and a family. What she has is no job, a mounting pile of bills, and her outspoken best friend—who sets her up on a blind date with the man who inadvertently ruined Jill’s life.
Chet Castle is a prosperous businessman who has everything, except the ability to trust. Burned by a money-hungry fiancée, he refuses to get involved with any relationship that has a shelf life longer than a head of lettuce.
Intrigued by her ambition—and determined to get her in bed—Chet offers Jill the chance of a lifetime: Work for him for the next eight weeks as his live-in chef and he’ll help her get her catering business off the ground. When sparks fly in the kitchen, Jill realizes what’s cooking with her commitment-phobic employer is a recipe for disaster…but it’s just too tasty to not take a bite.
When I’m reading a book I love reading about the inventive places the author has chosen for their characters to “do the deed”. And when I’m writing a book, I love to try and be inventive and make my love scenes hopefully a bit outside the norm.
When I wrote my first book—Some Like it in Handcuffs—I wanted a fun scene, but one that would end behind closed doors. My characters started getting a bit frisky in an elevator, stumbled along the corridor of the hero’s apartment building and almost fell through his front door in their haste to remove each others clothing. Upon arriving in the bedroom things turned from playful to hot and heavy and then back to playful. I turned off the light and closed the door so they could have some privacy. The scene was fun to write and I still smile when I read it :)
In my second book—Two Timing the Boss—I wanted my characters to be a bit more daring and not have the typical love scene in the bedroom—or behind closed doors. So I chose a more…um…well, public spot. They ended up getting out of control in the backseat of the heroine’s borrowed car in a dimly lit, nearly empty parking lot well after midnight. It was a challenge for them and me to make a love scene in the back seat of a car comfortable but sensuous. Lol
In my latest release—Bachelor’s Special—I wanted to find another fun spot for my star characters Jill Adgate and Chet Castle to lose control and make love. I chose a secluded spot outside in Chet’s swimming pool. I absolutely love how this scene came together and I’m glad Chet and Jill were in the water to help keep their body temps in control because things got hot. So hot I’m surprised the pool water wasn’t bubbling! YOWZA!!!
I have a lot of other fun spots I’d like future characters to get frisky in and I can’t wait to write them. How about you? What’s a place, situation, or a prop that you’d like to see used in a romance book love scene? Who knows, maybe I’ll want to use it!
