Cassandra Willows has taken adversity and turned it into wild success. Not only is she one of the Empire’s most sought after seamstresses, servicing the very wealthy ladies of the ton, but in secret she creates erotic toys for high class courtesans and randy gentleman. Cassandra has but one regret: The Earl of Blackhearth, Nathan Manning, who once wished to marry her and will never forgive her for not showing up when they were to elope.
Nathan has been living in India and has returned to London at the behest of his ill father. His one duty is to find a suitable bride, but a chance encounter with Cassandra wipes that thought from his mind and replaces it with both desire and a need for revenge. So he blackmails his former love into a passionate affair. But the closer the two become physically, the harder it becomes for them to block out the feelings they once shared. And the closer Nathan comes to the devastating truth that tore them apart.
Okay, people, let's have some FUN! Today I'm giving away a copy of Jess Michaels' TABOO, a very sexy romance that has a strongly emotional storyline between two former lovers thrown back into each others' lives.
I like the title of this book for a variety of reasons, one of which is the inspiration behind today's contest. All are welcome to participate, but only those that follow the rules will be entered to win a copy of Jess' book. [Note: I try to make the contests simple, and hopefully fun. I ask that you please DO NOT include your email address as I will post the name of the winner here and it is up to them to contact me within a week of the winner being announced]. All you have to do is answer the question and your name will be entered to win.
~ What actually does taboo mean? Definition: declare sacred or forbidden ~
Most of us have some little indulgence we like to partake in that we know we shouldn't. Maybe you eat a slice of cheesecake for breakfast every morning, when you know it's bad for you. Or you like to buy scratch-off tickets instead of paying the latest credit card bill. Or it could be you got lucky with your boyfriend/husband in your office at work...oh what a delicious taboo that would be!
So what I wanna know is...
What is your sweetest taboo?
It can be real or it could be one you imagine would be really good, like plunking $1000 down at a roulette table in Vegas, or nude sunbathing. Not my particular taboos, but they could be someone else's. Me, I'm pretty boring, but I have a very vivid imagination *g* I'm not asking for deep, dark secrets here, just wondering what is that one temptation you know is so bad for you but you can't resist. I think there's a whole lot that could fit that description.
Contest will run until 5pm CST on Sunday, August 2nd, so please be sure to post a comment before then if you'd like to be entered in the contest. A random winner will be drawn, and those who also comment on the interview from yesterday will get an additional entry in the contest. As I mentioned earlier, as long as mail can be delivered to you, anyone is eligible to participate. Good luck, and thanx for playin'!
