Saturday Sexcerpt – Training the Receptionist by Juniper Bell

This is an excerpt from Juniper Bell’s latest book, Training the Receptionist by Juniper available at Samhain.

Simon stood at the wall-to-ceiling picture window that looked out over the depressing downtown. His jacket was off, hands in his pockets. I stopped just inside the door. When I closed it behind me, I felt a strange sense of safety. As if anything could happen inside this beige space and it would be okay.

“You can take off your jacket now,” he said without turning around.

My heart seemed to jump into my throat. Every nerve ending in my body stood at attention. I opened my mouth to say something snappy, but nothing came out. Instead, I slid one arm out of my jacket, then the other. Not sure what to do with it, I dropped it to the floor.

“Good. Now you can put your hands on your nipples.”

I didn’t move. I wasn’t sure I’d heard right. Besides, my heart was beating too fast. There was a long pause while we both stood still, me looking at his back, him looking out the window. Finally, he turned and gave me a mild stare.

“You’re not touching your nipples.”

I cleared my throat. “No.”

“I would imagine they’re in need of some contact right now. How do they feel? Aroused? Irritated?” His expression was one of concerned interest.

He had a point. “Like I want to jump out of my skin,” I admitted.

“Ah, I thought so. That’s why I suggested touching them. I certainly wouldn’t want you to jump out of that beautiful skin. Would you like to try it now?”

In the back of my mind, I wondered why we were talking about my nipples rather than proper phone procedure, or some other job-related issue. But his green eyes flicked over my body, scattering sparks of heat wherever they went, and before I knew it my hands rose to my tits. I put my fingers around my nipples. The heat of them surprised me. My poor nipples were burning up under there. How had he known it was exactly what I needed, to touch myself like that?

“Tighter,” came Simon’s soft, almost hypnotic voice.

I pressed tighter and felt the texture of the lace dig into my flesh. My breath caught and my face flushed. A jolt of heat zinged on a straight line from my nipples to my insides. Moisture sprang between my legs. Startled by my body’s reaction, I snatched my hands away from my nipples.

“Did I ask you to stop?” Simon sounded disappointed. Reproving. My hands jumped back to my breasts. “No, stop,” he said.

I stopped, hands hovering a few inches away from my breasts.

“I want to see what you look like now. Unbutton your blouse.”

What the F? Was my brand-new boss really telling me to undo my blouse? And was I really on fire to do whatever he said? It kills me to admit it, but I couldn’t disobey him. Didn’t want to. He was leading me somewhere with that sexy voice. Somewhere I’d never been. Somewhere I wanted to go. I unbuttoned my blouse and drew it off my shoulders. I dropped it onto the floor, on top of my jacket. The stuffy office air felt cool against my skin.

“Beautiful,” said Simon, a note of approval in his voice. “Exactly how I’d pictured it on you. But your hair’s all wrong. It should be piled on your head. Do it.”

That last phrase came out stronger, more like an order. Without thinking, I filled my hands with my hair and pulled it to the top of my head. It felt thick and silky against my hands. I’d never been quite so aware of the feel of my hair before.

Simon walked across the office with deliberate slowness. When he got to my side, he walked around me. From behind, I felt his finger touch lightly on the back of my neck.

“Fascinating tattoo.” He seemed to realize it was still tender back there, because he didn’t linger on the tattoo. Instead he traced his finger along the side of my neck, down the rounded front of my shoulder, into the crevice between my breasts, creating a trail of fire wherever he touched. Then he delved under the lace of the teddy. Unbearable excitement filled me as he lifted my nipple away from the fabric.

“Mm,” he said noncommittally as he examined my nipple. He reached around my back and brought the other one out of its nest. His body, strong and smelling of some kind of jet-set aftershave, pressed against me. In the office window, I saw our reflection. His intent face bent over my shoulder, his hands at my front, tugging at my nipples. Me in a provocative teddy and tight hobble skirt. The sight added to my excitement and I leaned back against him. “You’ve had an interesting morning, haven’t you?” He murmured in my ear. “Look how these juicy little morsels swelled up. I bet that lace teased you hard, didn’t it? Rubbed up against you like a rough little kitten tongue. I thought about you all morning, thought about these breasts stirring under your blouse. Thought about how wet it must be making you. Thought about how your nipples would feel against my hands, all hard and excited and…”

A spasm shook my body. It shocked me. What was happening to me? It was as if he had suddenly acquired ownership of the body that had previously been mine. I was dancing to his tune, singing at his command.

He pulled my nipples again, hard, and again my body arched back against him. I felt his erection press against my ass. The thought that I’d given him that hard-on made me even more excited. I wanted him to ravage me with it. Grind it deep. I squirmed and panted, but he wouldn’t let me get closer to his cock.

AuThursday – Juniper Bell

Please welcome fellow LSB author Juniper Bell. 

First of all, thanks for having me here on AuThursday at the Clog Blog!

Tell us Juniper what inspired you to write your first book?

 I was inspired to write my first book during a tough time in my life. It was a kind of escape from everything I was dealing with. I’ve always been a fan of romance novels, especially when in need of some comfort and hope. This particular time, it suddenly occurred to me that I should try to write one. I’d written short stories and screenplays, but never a full-length novel. Turned out… I absolutely loved it.

Q:  Do you have a specific writing style?

That’s a tough question to answer. I’m sure I do have a specific writing style, but I’m not sure how to define it. I like to write deep POV, I like to keep my stories moving, I like some humor mixed in with the emotional development. I don’t like to go overboard with the “prose” – to me, the story and characters are what’s important.

Q:  How much of your books are realistic?

I think (hope!) they’re emotionally realistic. I spend a lot of time on characterization and really knowing my characters. But since I write erotic romance, some of the situations are more in the realm of fantasy. A receptionist and her two bosses in a three-way? It’s probably not going to happen in real life. It’s not meant to be “realistic” in that sense, but as a fantasy, it’s real. And the setting is very realistic (bland office in a dead-end Long Island town – definitely realistic.)

Q:  What are your current projects?

My current release is the one I mentioned above, “Training the Receptionist” from Samhain. It’s an erotic novella about a receptionist who finds her naughty dream job at the firm of Cowell & Dirk, where she answers (very personally) to her two sexy bosses. 

Q:  Name one entity that you feel supported you outside of family members.

My critique group has been wonderful to me. When I first started writing I had no idea about the publishing business … particularly e-publishing. Their experience and support really helped me find my way to publication. Not to mention help me get my books in shape to send out! We cheer each other on, which is so important in this crazy business. I really don’t know where I’d be without my critique group.

Q:  Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

For me the most challenging moment is when I read over my first draft and see all the problems, all the things I want to fix, the characters that don’t work, the sex scenes that could be hotter … and so on. I’m a big rewriter, I start with a rough draft and keep refining and improving until I’m happy. But rereading that first draft … yeeow, that’s painful!  

Q:  Who designs your covers?

I’ve been so lucky with my covers! Tuesday Dube, KaNaXa, and Scott Carpenter have done my covers. How blessed am I? I love all my covers.

Q:  Do you have any advice for other writers?

I love Nora Roberts’ advice: Butt in the chair. That’s really what it comes down to. Just keep on writing. If you win a contest and you’re on top of the world? Keep on writing. Get a bad review and want to jump off a cliff? Keep on writing. It’s the answer to everything. LOL. Other than that … pay lots of attention to motivation and conflict. Makes sure you understand why your characters do what they do. And conflict keeps things interesting. It gives the reader a reason to keep reading.

Q:  How do you make time to write?

 This is, hands down, the most important thing you have to do as a writer. You have to give yourself that time, because without it, nothing happens. Personally, I try to think of it as a job. Certain hours of the day belong to writing. I get very upset if something disrupts that. I need that time, psychologically. I get crabby if I can’t write. I build the rest of my day around it. Of course, things happen, I get pulled away, and then I just go with the flow. But then I’ll usually try to make up the time later. Over time, I’ve trained my family to take my writing time as seriously as I do.

 Q:  What do you feel is the biggest misconception about e-publishing?

 That it’s somehow “less” than print. There are wonderful authors, editors and artists working in e-publishing. I look forward to the day when e-publishing gets the same respect as print.

 Q:  Where can readers find you on the World Wide Web?

 My website is http://JuniperBell.com and my blog is http://authorjuniperbell.com. I’m also on Twitter as @AuthorJuniper and on Facebook.

 Q: Do you have a sexy excerpt you’d like to share with us?

 Absolutely! I’ll share an excerpt from “Training the Receptionist.” Thanks again for having me, I had fun answering your questions.

AuThursday Thirteen

Normally I have an interview with one of my fellow authors at one of my current publishers (Liquid Silver Books and Resplendence).  Today I thought I’d share 13 things about me in leiu of my usual interview. 

1)  I love to watch Ballroom Dancing!  Not Dancing with the Stars mind you, the actual annual Ballroom finals.  They are usually on your local PBS station.  I’m not sure what it is that draws me in but I thoroughly enjoy it.

2) I’ve been married for 19 years.

3) I work Monday-Friday for a Fortune 500 Company.  Alas I wish it wasn’t true but it is for a little bit.

4) I love Soduko puzzles.

5) The Ringtone for my phone is “Sedated” by the Ramones

6) I have Frank Sinatra, Gary Allen, Smashing Pumpkins, INXS and GreenDay on my MP3 player but no Ramones.

7) Ironically, I detest Romantic Movies.  Okay, detest may be too strong of a word but I really struggle deciding to make a Romance my number one visit to the movie theatre.  I’ve been drug to most Romances by DH or Lyn Armstrong.

8) I’ve been friends with Debbie Cairo & Lyn Armstrong for 5 years.  We met at the RT Con when we were all aspiring authors.

9) Holli Winters is my Critique Partner.

10)  I love Science Fiction. 

11)  I don’t have Cable TV.  I read and write.  I don’t have time for more than 8 channels.

12)  I still have Dial-up.  I know – it’s practically the dark ages but I’m seriously considering an upgrade.

13) I’m going to be appearing at CoreCon in April.
