The Independent Voice Celebrates Amelia James

I started reading steamy romance novels in junior high, but my mom took them away from me, so I started daydreaming instead. After I got married, I wrote some of my naughtier daydreams down and sent them to Playgirl magazine. Two of them got published.  I kept daydreaming and writing stories until my dirty stories turned into trashy books.

I live in Colorado, but I ll always be a loyal Wisconsin Cheesehead. When I m not lusting after my next bad boy hero, I look for inspiration in sci-fi and action movies, football players, bloodsucking lawyers, muscle cars, and kick-butt chicks.

Tell us 5 Random Things about you the person, not the author
1) I'm afraid of spiders!
2) I misspelled 'vehicle' and lost an 8th grade spelling bee. I still have to look it up.
3) I adopted my first child a year ago.
4) I was never able to keep a journal until I got a computer.
5) My dream car is a '68 Mustang or one of the new Cameros.

Book Blurb
I can give you exactly what you re asking for, Janie, and I can give it to you all night long. Their first kiss is impulsive, fun, a little wicked - everything Jane Elliot isn' t looking for in a man - but desperately needs.  Their second kiss is slow, deliberate, an instant connection - everything Austin Sinclair never had with a woman- and doesn' t want.

Jane isn t the easy conquest Austin s used to.  She s a stubborn-as-hell bookworm who s more interested in studying than dating.  She needs a little--no--a lot of fun in her life, and Austin s just the guy who can give it to her.  Too bad she thinks love should easy. Too bad Austin knows it isn t. 

Everybody told her to stay away from the heartbreaker, but Jane knows there s more to Austin than full-body contact kisses and bad boy charm.  All he ever promised her was a good time and wow, does he ever deliver.
