is in Nashville on her third week of a month-long business trip. She doesn’t
mind seeing a new city every week, but she’s dragging after so many without a
break. When a sexy stranger wants to share her breakfast table, she welcomes
the change in scenery. The easy banter and teasing that dances behind the eyes
of the handsome voice actor have her wondering if just this once, a one-night
stand might be worth her time.
is tired of the playboy image that comes with his cult-celebrity status. When
he meets a business woman with a travel schedule as hectic as his, she lights a
spark deep inside. The problem is, he’s hoping for something long-term, and

three days before they go their separate ways, Brandon has to show Jade there’s
more to them than just an unconventional fling.
Mini Blurb:
needs to break up a monotonous, five-week business trip. A one-night stand with
Brandon, the sexy voice actor she meets at breakfast, is the perfect solution.
With three days before they go their separate ways, Brandon’s hoping to show
Jade there’s more to them than an unconventional fling.
Jade’s heart dropped into her shoes when she realized she’d
reached the front of the line. What was she supposed to say? She shifted her
weight from one foot to the other while the actors took pictures with the
person who’d been in front of her. And then it was her turn.
Brandon’s eyes grew wide when she stepped forward, smile
quickly spreading. “I didn’t know you were a fan.”
She couldn’t help returning the pleased look but made sure
to tuck away most of her giddiness. “I didn’t realize you were famous.”
He grabbed a small poster off a nearby stack that sported
the cartoon characters she figured were him and his cohorts. He scribbled
something, holding it at an angle so the glare of the lights above kept her
from reading it.
He nodded to his left. “Who’s your friend?”
She followed his gaze to Andie, who stood at the edge of the
line, almost hopping with irritation. Jade’s smile faded to embarrassment.
“That’s who I borrowed the pass from to stand in line.”
He grabbed another print. “I’m flattered. What’s your plan
now that you’re here?”
“I hadn’t gotten that far,” she confessed.
He handed her a print and nodded at the now wide-eyed Andie.
“For your new friend.” Then he handed her the second one. “For you. Don’t get
them mixed up.”
Jade gave him one last smile. “Thanks.”
She trudged toward Andie, handing off the girl’s pass and
the signed poster without another word, and then headed upstairs. So much for
her brilliant plan to seduce the gorgeous stranger. Maybe she should just stay
in her room the rest of the night.
When she pulled out her signed print and turned it over to
read the inscription, her embarrassed heat shifted to something new.
Casting the Characters
There are a lot of
things I spend ages pondering when I write a new story. What to name my
characters, where they live, what their professions are… But one of the things
I always spend the most time on is what they look like. Because it’s my
fantasy, so I might as well go all-out.
As part of that, I love
to figure out who would play my characters on the big screen. Unconventional Fling was a little
different as far as that was concerned, because I already had a very distinct
image of what my hero looked like before I wrote a single word. The story was
built around him.
So, who could slide
into this role? I asked myself, did such a guy even exist? Rugged, manly, and
just as comfortable in a suit as in jeans and a T-shirt.

Ian Somerhalder is
pretty much everything I picture in Brandon. Square jaw, capable of fierce or
soft, and… absolute yum.
Which meant I needed to
match him with an appropriate leading lady. Jade came to me with dark hair and
pale eyes. One of my favorite combinations. The contrast is always stunning to
me. And she’s got

to be able to pull off sultry one moment, professional the
next, and a confident air of sexy all the time.

Megan Fox. Absolutely. The
perfect combination of girl next door, and stop a guy in his tracks depending
on her mood.
Besides, the two of
them as a couple, I figure they’d turn a lot of heads. But that doesn’t mean I
took everyone into account. Tell me, your favorite brunette actress and actor,
and convince me they’re a hotter couple than Megan Fox and Ian Somerhalder.
