'Twas the day after Christmas and all through the house, chaos ruled.
I don't know about your house, but the day after Christmas, mine resembled a bomb site, and I didn't even host Christmas!
I spent Christmas Eve at my parents' place and stayed over, Christmas lunch with one aunt, and dinner with another. Most of Christmas Eve day I was baking, so there's a pile of dishes that was left to air-dry on the draining board. I'm actually quite impressed that I washed them right away!
Gifts are scattered haphazardly around the room, the result of several stop-ins to drop off presents and pick up more between events. Torn wrapping paper is piled mixed in with the piles.
And, of course, there are rolls of wrapping paper, ribbon, tape and scissors on the table, where I left them after I finished wrapping the last of the presents.
The fridge groans with the amount of food packed into it—leftovers sent home with me. Even as I write this, my stomach growls at the thought of the truly excellent ham waiting for me. The Christmas tree looks forlorn without gifts beneath it, as if it knows it's time on display is nearly over for another year.
I look around and dread the thought of putting everything back in order. Instead, I'm going to settle comfortably onto my couch and find something to read. Naughty? Perhaps. But after the crazy lead-up to Christmas, culminating in the chaos of the last two days, I think I'm entitled to a little indulgence. Don't you?
With her resignation submitted, Jeannie Price has one last task she’s itching to perform before leaving her job. After months of sitting next to hot, sexy colleague Tim Harding, it’s time to turn fantasy into reality with a scorching invitation to collaborate on matters of the flesh in Conference Room B. Then she can walk away without regrets.
Tim’s dreams of wild, sweaty sex with Jeannie come true when he accepts her offer, but he’s stunned to learn she doesn’t want to see him again after their steamy tryst. She may be trying to brush him off as just one more item on her To-Do List, but he’s determined to convince her there’s nothing taboo about inter-office relations.
You can buy Inter-Office Relations here, or read an excerpt here. I'll be selecting one lucky commenter to receive a title of their choice from Sarah's backlist. I won't be choosing until midnight Thursday, so there's plenty of time to recover from Christmas!
Big thanks to Sarah for hosting me, and I hope you all enjoyed your weekend!
