Short excerpt from the end of Chapter One of Loving Ms. Wrong
By ten-thirty we’re all a little buzzed and laughing so hard a few of us are wiping tears away. Julie brought a game called “Who’s the Biggest Pervert?” And I’m not sure if I should be appalled or proud that I’m the biggest pervert in the group so far. Heather and Carla toasted me twice, forcing all of us to drink even more of the brandy infused wine laced with fruit. It goes great with the chocolate cupcakes Heather made, so none of us complained. Then again, doesn’t everything go with chocolate?
I’m feeling no pain when Carla informs us it’s time to take the party on the road. Festooned with tacky pink sashes that say Girls Night Out, wearing pink Mardi-gras beads and the candy penis necklaces, and each carrying our glow in the dark straws in our purse, we’re ready to paint the town. I’m glad there’s no mirror near the elevators or I’d probably have second thoughts about being seen in public wearing this stuff.
“Oh, wait!” Julie shouts. “I have something fun for everyone to take home.” She wiggles her eyebrows suggestively. “Might stir up a little ‘magic.’ You never know.” She reaches into her purse while we enter the elevator and pulls out a handful of tiny plastic baggies. “Here,” she says while distributing one to each of us.
Heather opens hers first. “Are these dice? The shape is odd. What are these little pictures?” She gasps in understanding.
I look to mine and start laughing. “No way. Did you get us dirty gamer dice? These have pictures of people having sex in different positions on each side.”
Carla squeals in delight. “So cool! I can’t wait to try this later with Andy.”
Conversation and comments swirl over each other as everyone checks out their die.
“Hey,” Bekki says as we leave the elevator. “I got a bum one. There’s two spots on here with the guy getting head. Talk about unfair.”
“Lemme see,” says Gemma while she frantically searches her die, too. “Dammit. Mine is the same way.”
We spill into the night, giggling like a pack of randy college girls. Julie’s laughing so hard it takes her a second to respond. “Sorry, guys. Should have mentioned I think these things were designed by men. All of them have the two blow job sides.”
A man in his thirties wandering by us on the sidewalk looks up at her words, checks out the lot of us from head to toe, and smiles bright. We all laugh again.
“Seems unfair,” Heather says between gasps of laughter. “Maybe we should put white-out on one of them and insert a question mark… like lover’s choice?”

Excerpt from chapter five. We’re in Carla’s POV: She’d like to avoid Andy at work and the difficult topic he brings up.
“We still haven’t talked about our night together. How long do you intend to put me off?”
Forever? Damn, I was afraid this would happen. Holding in the heavy sigh longing to escape, I face my pushy co-worker. “No offense, but I’m not interested in dating an accountant.”
“Excuse me?” His tone comes out sharper than I’ve ever heard from him. “Do you think I’m not worthy of you because of my job?”
“Umm… no. Sorry.” That’s exactly it, but saying so is bitchier than I’d like. I switch to the next file and give him my back. “Listen, it was a fun night and all, but I want more excitement. Something spicy.”
His footsteps behind me are barely audible over the hum of the copier. Hands rest on my hips and I tense. “You have no idea what you want. You could have excitement right in front of you and you wouldn’t know what to do about it.”
Annoyed, I whip around to face him, dislodging his hands. “Really? And you think I don’t remember the tolerable three minutes we shared?”
His deep blue eyes darken in anger and he leans closer, crowding my space. “I think you recall someone named Johnny and seem to be attributing some of our time together to a dream about him.”
A blush creeps up my cheeks, I do remember having dreamed about an old college flame, but how the hell does he know that? “Umm… I…”
“You called out his name,” his warm breath tickles my lips, “while I pleasured you.”
Startled by the revelation, I dart to the side and make for the door. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
His voice whispers when the copier cycles down, “You’re sexy when you let down your guard.”
I turn to face him. He takes two quick strides and captures my mouth. His lips press against mine and a coil of heat unravels in my middle. A warm hand caresses the back of my head, gently drawing me closer.
I open my mouth to protest and his tongue slips inside to spar with my own. The rush of blood pounding through my veins brings a tingly feeling that halts my words before they form. His wide open eyes stare into my own, challenging me with the heat I see simmering in their depths.
His mouth tastes like fresh coffee heavily laced with cream. My knees weaken at the intensity and warmth pouring off him. He nibbles on my bottom lip and a spike of pleasure jolts down my spine, jarring me from the spell he’s weaving.
I place two hands on his chest and push him away. Our lips break and a shudder runs through me. “What the hell was that?” My tone sounds indignant, but my body betrays me with arousal.
Andy smiles, a slow, indulgent curve of his lips. His tongue slips out to run along his full mouth. “I think you know exactly what that was.” He boldly reaches out a hand and runs a finger over my right nipple, peaked hard and pressing against the inside of my bra.
I swat his hand away.
“It’s passion, Carla. Don’t fight it.”
