Just One More Level

Here’s a sad truth about geeks. It’s exemplified by this awesome song by comedy group Tripod, a song in which the singer assures his girl he will make sweet, sweet love to her…as soon as he finishes this level.

“I think this Xbox is the best present I ever bought for you, baby!”

Oh, gamers. The very thing that makes them geeks–the fact that they’ve so absorbed themselves in the game that they lose touch with their physical surroundings–is the reason I sometimes wonder how we ever manage to breed up more geeks.

I’ve sat across a table flirting like crazy during a board game, skillfully weaving double entendres into game talk, making eye contact so significant that in any other setting it would result in two people throwing down right there on the floor. And I’ve done that for hours. And hours. Because games can take a really long time to play, and then there’s this other new game somebody brought, and that takes hours…and before everybody knows it, it’s midnight on a work night and nobody is gonna get any action because we’re all too sleepy. And don’t even get me started on how much sleep I gave up, or how much sexytime I did not have, when my significant other and I were both still playing World of Warcraft.

I have my geeks in The Science of Temptation series circumvent this problem by becoming geeky…about kink! They may obsess over the origins of a particular shibari tie, or spend hours hand-crafting a flogger, or debate single-tail technique until everybody else’s eyes glaze over…but at least the whole thing winds up with somebody going home happy. Geeky happy endings for all!


(1 Curious Sub + 1 Dom in Denial) – Inhibitions = 4 Naughty Nights

Wildlife biologist Lindsey thought attending a fan convention with her new boyfriend Ben was a great idea—until their relationship fizzled. Lindsey still lusts after her ex—but if he wants her, he’s going to have to prove it.

Ben will do anything to win Lindsey back, and when he sees her in her skimpy black vinyl convention get-up, he realizes what she’s been craving all along. And he is inspired to finally give in to his own dark desire to take complete sexual control…

Lindsey is surprised by her reaction to Ben’s kinky new seduction techniques, and suddenly sees the brilliant but uptight code guru in a different light. After several erotic encounters in hotel rooms and stairwells, she’s falling for Ben all over again. And wondering if the intimate connection will last once they head home…

After earning two graduate degrees, practicing law awhile, and then working for the public school system for over ten years, I finally got a clue. I tossed all that aside and started doing what I should have been doing all along, writing novels! In hindsight I could see the decision was a no-brainer.

I’m fortunate to have two wonderful, absurdly precocious children and two delightful if occasionally disobedient mutts. My family and I are all Texas natives, and reside in unapologetic suburban bliss near Houston.
