His dark eyes caressed the curves of her buttocks like a warm hand. Erika Larson-Bergstrom shivered as she glanced at him out the corner of her eye. She licked her lips as his gaze captured hers and he smiled, unnerving her while at the same time arousing her until she ached with need.
A part of her wondered if her mischievous twenty-two-year-old twin daughters had set this up. After all, they were the ones whoâd given her the $100 gift certificate for Erotically Bound, the upscale Minneapolis adult store she shopped in right now. But the man eyeing her was no twenty-two-year-old kid. He was all man and she wanted to explore every inch of himâ¦intimately.
Erika looked down at the lingerie she fingered, trying to clear her lust-filled mind. Her biggest problem was that sheâd spent the last twelve years rearing her daughters as a single mom. She could count on one hand the number of men sheâd dated during that time. The number sheâd slept with was even less. She was just horny and needed to get laid, and he was the answer to a horny womanâs prayer.
âMiss, could you assist me?â His voice was warm and deep with the hint of an Antonio Banderas-style Spanish accent. She looked up into the warmest brown eyes sheâd ever seen. At least heâd called her âmissâ and not âmaâamâ.
âYes, I must buy a gift for a lady and I have no idea what she might want.â
âOh.â Erika forced a smile to her tight lips. âSure.â
Well, that certainly burst her bubble. He had a woman he was shopping for. It figured. Of course it should have been a relief he wasnât buying undies for himself since he was shopping in the womenâs lingerie section, but sheâd been dreaming he might possibly be as attracted to her as she was to him. No such luck.
He wanted a buddy to help him shop for another woman. Shit. Buddy seemed to be the only way men viewed herâespecially latelyâand it was almost always because she was a plus-size woman. Women with big butts liked sex too. Damn men, anyway.
âSo whatâs the gift for? Your anniversary? Her birthday?â
âAnniversary? No.â He laughed. She liked his laughâ¦a lot. He threw himself into it. His head back and his hands running through his hair. Thick, black hair. Yum.
Focus, Erika. Do not notice the full, wide lips and straight, white teeth. The high cheekbones. She swallowed, her gaze skimming over him. The broad shoulders, narrow hips and tight ass. Forget how hot he is. But no matter how hard she tried, she couldnât ignore his appeal.
âIâm shopping for my administrative assistant.â
âYourâ¦?â Oh geez. Sleeping with an employee. Could it get worse?
He waved his hand as he read her expression. âNo, she is getting married and this place has a bridal registry.â
âA bridal registry? Youâve got to be kidding.â Erika raised her brows.
âI know. It sounds insane, and so I told her. But she assured me it was so.â He pulled out a piece of paper and handed it to her. âHere is a list of things the clerk printed for me that have not yet been purchased for her. My assistant is very organized and wants no duplicates.â
Erika looked at the list he held and realized he was telling the truth. It consisted of lingerie, loungewear, dresses, shoes and, good grief, sex toys and movies.
âYes. I refuse to buy her some of these items. I am her friend, yes, but her employer first. Can you imagine if I showed up at the office bridal shower with,â he took the list back, glaring at it while shaking his head in disbelief, âa Rotating G-Spot Rabbit Vibrator?â
âIt would certainly be the talk of the party,â Erika agreed dryly.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Francesca Hawley
Hi. Iâm Francesca Hawley and Iâm a fat chick. A woman with dangerous curves just like my heroines.
Many people donât like the word, âfatâ but I do because itâs the truth and Iâve learned to own it. I am a fat chick and I always will be. When I first began to read romance, the heroines were all thin. I kept wondering, where were the fat heroines? I wanted to read about a fat chick who loved herselfâor at least learned to love herselfâand a hot alpha hero who liked her jiggly bits just the way they were.
Since I didnât find many big girls to read about, I decided to write about them, so Francesca Hawley â author of Romance with Dangerous Curves was born.
In a Francesca Hawley romance, my readers will find authentic, sensual, fat heroines who love and are loved by their intense, passionate, and seductive Alpha heroes. I hope you enjoy their dangerous curves just as much as their hunky heroes do.
