Today I get to host the fabulous Emily Cale, author of many wonderful romances of varying flavors and pairings, the latest of which is the first story in her Hat Trick Trilogy. Yeah. Hockey guys. I know, man. I'm in. So okay, I'll give you the official bio and then let Emily take it away...
Emily Cale is a mutipublished author of erotica and erotic romance. You can find her online on her website or Twitter.
Hi all! I'm Emily Cale and I write erotic romance. I thought I would share a few secret about the writing of my newest release, Goalie Interference, and then an exclusive excerpt.
In case it isn't obvious, there are two names on the cover of Goalie Interference. That's right, I co-wrote this book with my friend Angela S. Stone. It was the first time I'd tried anything like this before and it turned into quite the experience. I think everyone has their own process for this sort of thing, but I'll tell you how we managed. Each of us took a different point of view and then we switched off writing.
This process definitely made for some extra editing, since there were a lot of inconsistencies in the first draft between us. It also made for a lot of fun. We'd try to one-up one another with surprises at the end of each section. I think that makes it extra fun for the reader as well.
In case that wasn't enough, we have more books planned. Power Play is the second in the series and is a menage story that should be out sometime in the fall.
So how about that excerpt I promised you?
"What?" Tarah pulled the sheet tighter around her body. "You think I'm a prostitute?" She'd been accused of a lot of things over the years, but never of being a hooker.
"I'm not mad at you. My friends put you up to this, and for that I'm sorry." He gave her a stern glare.
"I don't even know your friends." She returned to the bedroom, gathered her clothes from the floor, and began putting them back on. She couldn't believe she'd been enjoying herself with him. For a moment, she'd thought all the crap she'd heard about him being a player was just talk. Guess she should listen to locker room gossip.
He strode her into the room and leaned against the wall, arms crossed. "I don't care how they set this up. I can't pay you—or let them pay you—to have sex with me."
"No, you cannot give me money to sleep with you. Are you crazy?" She shoved her feet into the legs of her pants and wiggled them up. This situation underscored why she didn't date hockey guys. Since they were the only men she knew, it meant few dates. It also meant little drama. They came with a truckload of baggage. She wanted someone to cuddle with during a quiet night at home. This evening no longer counted as relaxing.
"Someone already has paid you. Tell me how much that last romp cost them and I'll take care of it. It's less creepy if it's me instead of my teammates."
She tugged her shirt over her head, ignoring the fact that she hadn't been able to find her bra. "It's disturbing either way. I'm not accepting money from you or your stupid friends." The sooner she got out of there, the better. Even if no money changed hands, she'd never be able to wipe away the humiliation of the evening. At best, she'd be able to duck her head and walk quickly past him at the next social event.
She knew better than to go along with Natalie's plans without asking a few questions first, but it had sounded like such a good deal. It had been a long time since she dated anyone, let alone someone she liked. Most guys couldn't deal with the fact that she could take them in a fight. Or they grew jealous of her celebrity status, however small that might be.
Goalie Interference is available now from Decadent Publishing, Amazon, and other booksellers.
