Sneak Peek: Stay with Me (Mountain Bay Series Book 1)

by michelle Anderson
Last month I shared a sneak peek of A Twist of Fate from my upcoming Sassy, Sexy Sin Series. Today I am sharing the origin for the series, Stay with Me (Mountain Bay Series Book 1). Stay with Me was originally scheduled for March of this year but instead it will be released next year following A Twist of Fate. I am having a blast creating characters and worlds for this series as well as a few others in production. And yes, The New York Renegades and The New Jersey Blazes will also have their own books.

It is my honor to share the blurb for Stay with Me.

As always, thank you to the amazing women who encourage and share this incredible writing journey with me. Besos y abrazos! Salud!

Enjoy!

Forget strangers on a train. Fire and Ice on a plane…

Media Proprietor Stella Taylor likes to remain behind the scenes. Flying to the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia to coax her new client to appear on Sassy Sexy Sin, an American cable, satellite and broadcast television network specializing in sex candy, sex toys and lingerie to promote her wildly, hot and always out of stock “TickleMate”, is turning into a nightmare. Stella is claustrophobic, afraid of heights and has had only one lover, so sex toys are not her forte. Most of all, she is terrified to trust another man again after her engagement tanked.

Sitting beside Stella is the most exquisite man she’s ever set her eyes on; New York Renegade shortstop Jake Paris. Jake is returning home for the grand opening of his family’s restaurant, Thongs and to recuperate after tearing a knee ligament in a game against the New Jersey Blazes.

When Stella passes out in his lap from drinking too many Long Island Iced Teas, she wakes up face down in his – um – sweets. When they arrive in Brisbane, Australia, Stella discovers her client is his grandmother!

As fate tosses the Yankee and the Aussie together, Stella finds it harder and harder to stay away from the irresistible charmer. While Jake longs to ask the exotic temptress to stay with me.
