BIO:
Nicole Morgan is an avid reader who kept having one recurring problem. Ideas of stories kept popping into her head. She ignored her desire to write until her curiosity got the better of her and she decided to research what steps she would have to take if she truly wanted to take a chance and write.

Nicole took a chance and followed her dream. She has been blessed with some fabulous opportunities and has met some wonderful people along the way. Writing is a true love to her and has brought her a new and profound happiness with every step she’s taken along the way.

Q: What part of the book is the easiest for you to write? Why?
A: I think for me that would have to be the first chapter. Once I get an idea in my head on what I want to write, the beginning just sort of flows from me. It’s not until later in the story I find myself getting stuck or having to really brainstorm which way I want to go with it.

Q:  If one of your books became a movie, which celebrity would you like to star as one of your heroines? Tell us about your heroine.
A: Well, like most of my heroines they are petite and blonde. I try to steer out of the norm one in a while but in this story I kept her blonde. That hair color seemed more appropriate for her type and personality. As far as movie stars go, I would have to say that Hayden Panettiere gives off the same amount of innocent beauty, which is exactly what I was going for with the character Sara.

Q:  If one of your books became a movie, which celebrity would you like to star as one of your hero? Tell us about your hero.
A: Well, oddly enough when I was writing the character for Mitch I wasn’t so much thinking of a movie star as much as a model. Specifically a romance cover model. I had a vision of one particular man in my head when I was writing about Mitch. Images of Jimmy Thomas http://www.romancenovelcovers.com kept flashing into my mind as the story played out. So, Mitch was born in the image of Jimmy. Thank you for that Jimmy!

Q: Do you eat comfort food when writing? If so, what food inspires your imagination?
A: I’ve been known to enjoy a bowl of popcorn every now and again while writing. I find myself getting engrossed in the story and munching on the popcorn much like I would if I was sitting in the movie theatre.

Q: You’re on a remote island with a handsome man, a computer, and a “mysterious” source of electricity to power your computer. What do you do?
A: I send an email to everyone I know saying I will be out of contact for a very long time! I mean, there is a handsome man with me on a remote island right? I am not wasting that! Perhaps he can inspire me!

Q: What genre would you like to try writing in but haven’t yet done so? Why?
A: Wow. I have been asked this so much lately that I secretly think you might all be plotting against me to make sure I get off my tushy and get it done. LOL. Seriously though, I have always wanted to attempt the paranormal romance genre, especially the ones with erotic content but I’ve been a bit too apprehensive to go for it. I did manage to type a small paranormal chapter which was just barely 1000 words for Stella Cameron’s Scarlet Boa contest last year. I didn’t win of course, but I did find it intriguing, writing in a completely different way than what I was used to. It’s definitely something that I need to pursue because that story still keeps popping in my head.

BLURB:
Sara is inexperienced with men, but finds her untapped sexuality is bursting beneath the pressure of lustful desires. Mitch works with Sara and knows office romances can go horribly wrong, but that doesn’t stop him from going ahead with his plan to seduce her. Soon, the two find themselves in an erotic game of pleasure. Their affair proves to be more than either of them anticipated. After only a couple of days their relationship intensifies into a firestorm of passion and they begin to fall in love.

Claudia works with them both and isn’t happy when Mitch rejects her advances. Not willing to take no for an answer she uses every form of manipulation to drive the couple apart. Is their relationship strong enough to handle the betrayal that they believe to be true? Or will the thought of losing each other be the catalyst to keep them together?

EXCERPT:
Sara looked at Mitch over the rim of her glass after taking a sip. Setting it down, she spoke candidly, “Mitch, I’m sorry for the way I acted just a little while ago. I wish I wasn’t so unsure of myself. You told me I should be truthful with you so I will.”

She took a breath as she folded her fingers together on the table. “The truth is, I really like you. And I really don’t want to do something to scare you off. That’s why I didn’t want you to think you had to do all of this,” she said, motioning with her hands at the ambiance of the restaurant. “But,” she said before he could protest, “I think I could get used to you spoiling me a little.”

“Well, I am very glad to hear that. I think I will enjoy spoiling you as well. Now, what are the odds I can get you to take off those panties?”

“Ahem, sorry, sir. Your, ah, salads.”

Mitch and Sara waited quietly as the waiter set their salad plates down in front of them. When the red-faced waiter left them, they both burst out into laughter.

Trying to regain her composure, Sara reached for her wine glass and eyed him with disbelief. “You are going to have to do something about your predilection toward me having a naked bottom.”

With complete disobedience in his eyes and a hint of mockery in his tone, he said, “You know, I think you’re right. When we leave here, let’s go pick up some lighter fluid and have ourselves a little panty barbeque on your patio.”

She laughed for a moment before she asked, “How did you know I had a barbeque?”

Shit! There was no way he could tell her yet. She would retreat and run. Trying to play it casual, he said, “I just figured. Does that mean we get to do it?” He waggled his brows at her.

“Hardly. But if you keep making me laugh like this, I might have to reward you later. I swear, I haven’t had this much fun in such a long time.”

They ate their salads over small talk. Sharing a few laughs over some of the people at the office, causing them both to be equally surprised to find that when it came to their co-workers, their opinions were identical. Amazingly, they had a lot in common.

Mitch wasn’t surprised at how compatible they seemed. When he watched her in her window just a couple of nights ago, he knew there was something about her. Something other than the fact that she looked absolutely magnificent as she touched herself in the moonlight.

The waiter took their salad plates away, and Mitch took a swig of wine before refilling both of their glasses. “Feel like playing a game?”

She smirked. “I am not going to take off my panties, and that is final. Wait until we get home.”

He wanted to laugh at her comment. But something about the way she said ‘until we get home’ caused a small flutter in his stomach. Could he actually really be falling for her? They haven’t even been dating for a week yet. He tried to ignore the sensation. “You’ve heard of word association games, right?”

Sipping her wine, she nodded.

“Well, it can be kind of interesting sometimes. Do you want to try?”

“Sure, why not?"

“Good. I’ll start. But remember, you have to say the first word that comes into your mind. So, I’ll start with, ah,” Mitch looked around the room for inspiration and saw it, “Leprechaun."

Sara glanced around the restaurant until she saw a sweet little man with red hair. The only thing missing on him was a green suit. She laughed. “Okay, St.Patrick."

“Beer.”

“Pub.”

“Fish and chips.”

“That’s three words," Sara chided him.

He shrugged. “Hey, you got away with St. Patrick. That’s two words.”

“Fine. Cheater.”

“I’m not a cheater!” He laughed.

“No, my word is cheater.”

“Oh, okay. Um, never.”

She eyed him, as though thinking of what to say next. “Land.”

“Land? What does – oh, I get it. From Peter Pan, Never Land. Okay, um,
airplane.”

“Flying.” She smiled while sipping her wine.

“Climax.” Mitch watched as her face reddened.

Obviously not willing to back down ,Sara responded quickly,“Euphoria.”

“Ecstasy.”

“Happiness.”

“You.” He whispered the word with a gleam in his eye.
