Welcome Guest Author Susan Lyons (also writing as Susan Fox)
Thanks so much for inviting me to blog about my April release, Love, Unexpectedly. I’m thrilled to bits because it’s my first title with the Kensington Brava line (after writing for Kensington Aphrodisia and Berkley Heat) and my first book writing as Susan Fox.
Naveen Bharani is in love with his neighbour, Kat, but she’s stuck him in the buddy trap. Kat has a disastrous history with men: she’s always picking losers and having nasty break-ups. No way will she risk her friendship with Nav. He’s the best friend she’s ever had and, though she’s attracted to him, she can’t risk losing him.
When she tells him she’s traveling home from Montreal by train for her baby sister’s wedding, the desperate Nav sees this as his last chance. He’s going all out in pursuit of the woman of his dreams. Nav decides to revamp his image and play “stranger on the train.” He’s determined to seduce Kat into seeing him in a whole new light, and realizing he’s the man of her dreams.
Their journey across Canada by train—as best friends playing the “stranger game”—is truly one wild ride to love. And once they’ve started on that journey, there’s no turning back!
You can check out an excerpt and some behind-the-scenes notes on my website.
Today, I thought it would be fun to chat about a game that Nav brings along on the trip. It’s a board game called Nice ’n Naughty, and he uses it from time to time to loosen things up and create a more intimate atmosphere. It’s a great “getting to know you game” for lovers. You roll a die, land on a square that’s labelled with a heart, diamond, club, or spade, then draw a card from the corresponding deck and have to do what it says. Here’s what it says on some of the cards Kat and Nav draw:
• Describe the most deliciously sensual meal you can imagine sharing with your partner.
• What’s the one thing you want most in the world?
• Who’s your favorite person of the opposite sex, and why?
• Give your opponent a foot massage.
• What’s the most romantic gift a lover could give you?
• What’s the sexiest place you’ve ever made love?
• Which would you rather share with your lover: a shower or a bath?
So, here’s your challenge. Answer one of those questions yourself – or ask your spouse, partner, lover, special friend, and share their answer. One person who responds will win an autographed copy of Love, Unexpectedly.
