Big Huge Reader Contest - Day 15!

Whirlwind Affair by Francesca Hawley
Buy eBook from Ellora's Cave
Contemporary Erotic Romance / Rubenesque

Red Stilettos, Book Two
While a stand-alone, books are best enjoyed if read in order.

Erika Bergstrom is shopping in an upscale adult boutique when handsome Rodrigo Torbellino asks for help finding a gift. Just her luck! As he flirts with her, she discovers he’s shopping for a bridal shower gift for a friend, not a lover. So when he asks her to model a beautiful negligee then seduces her in the dressing room, Erika gives in to her urge for a wild new experience…a one-night stand.

The next morning, Erika’s body is sated from pleasure. Rigo obtains a promise she’ll call him and tells her that if she doesn’t, he’ll find her. She’s intrigued and thrilled with his obvious interest until she discovers Rigo is the head of the company her brother wants the family to partner with, so she doesn’t contact him. A month passes. When they meet again, the fire between them burns just as bright as ever, but does Rigo want the business deal or her?

Can the red stilettos live up to their legend to provide the wearer with her heart’s desire?

Naughty, naughty Erika, not calling the gorgeous Rigo, but lucky for us - the fabulous Francesca will show us what happened next :-)

Thank you for the treat, darlin'!

OOh, will the stilettos work their magic? My question is how will Rigo find her? Hmm, could be interesting. I love it. Why is it that mysterious stranger one nighters are so interesting? And hot? Maybe they're interesting BECAUSE they're hot? Hmm.

I'm gonna have to start reading these Red Stilettos books-they sound hot.

Lovie said...

I need to get me a pair of Red Stilettos. Just saw on your blog that your book "Protect and Defend" is a finalist in the 13th Annual Prism Awards - GOOD LUCK! I have added "Protect and Defend" to to my TBR list, I love finding new shapeshifter books and authors.

Kandace said...

I do have a love of red heels, so this book apealed from the cover with hers. The description sounds good too. I've heard good things about this author, so thanks for the reminder & for showing me something specific I should get. :)

Hi Francesca -

Great start to a Tue. I hopped over and read the excerpt and I love that the bride had a gift registry at the adult store. Chuckled at the idea of Rigo Not wanting to get the “a Rotating G-Spot Rabbit Vibrator”. I will definitely add this to my TBR list. Have a great day!

Hot excerpt I can't wait to read this book. It would be hard for me to talk to a stranger in a adult store if it was a upscale one.

Anne said...

Loved the excerpt, the book is different than I thought it would be from the brief blog description. I liked the older heroine and the humor.

joder said...

Red stilettos are always sexy so making them a theme throughout a series is a great idea. Great snippet, would love to see how things turn out.

Thanks to everyone for dropping by to comment! I'm thrilled you all like the sound of the series - it was a lot of fun to write. Rigo appealed to me from the beginning but he belongs to Erika. :-) Also, thanks to those of you who visited my web site and blog today, too!
