Going the Distance(2006)
A collection of stories by Jaci Burton, Ann Wesley Hardin and Shannon Stacey
HandsOn By Jaci Burton Lara McKenzie can't believe anyone would want to interview her about placing first in the annual self-pleasure fundraiser. An educator, she also writes books helping women to achieve more fulfilling sex lives. Now if only she could fulfill her own! Mark Whitman, freelance reporter, has just scored an easy assignment-write an article for Total Man Magazine about Lara McKenzie, sex educator and obvious expert on self-pleasure. He expects to find a bookish geek, not a red-hot redhead! When his one-time assignment turns into a request for a full-time job writing with Lara, Mark has to lie to Lara to convince her to co-author the articles. Soon they're steaming up the sheets in the bedroom and on the pages of the magazine and Mark is in way over his head. The truth may set you free, but Mark's afraid when Lara finds out the truth, he'll lose not only the job of his dreams, but the woman he loves. Twice Upon A RoadtripBy Shannon Stacey When the going gets tough, Jill Delaney gets going. . .in the other direction. This time the other direction has Jill hitching a ride with the senior center's Spring Fling tour to Orlando. Screwed out of a promotion, she's ready for some fun in the sun before it is time to balance her checkbook again. Ethan Cooper just wants to get his mother settled into her new job so he can pick up the pieces of his own life. But first Mom's got a little vacation planned. Now Ethan has to survive a trip with a busload of retirees and one sexy but infuriating blonde, then he's home free. But when they find themselves stranded and alone, Jill and Ethan are faced with making their own way south. Fighting scorching sexual desire and each other along the way, they give in and indulge in a little vacation sex-which doesn't mean they have to fall in love. After all, Jill's not ready to be domesticated, and Ethan's convinced she's not his type. They never saw the handcuffs coming. . .Coffee, Tea or Lea?
