Author Override is the place where authors take the reins and take you on a journey into their world. Some may allow you into their private writing dens. Others may take you along with them on research trips or interviews. Whatever the case may be, sit back, relax and enjoy the ride because here you’ll get an in-depth look into an author’s musings.
After a beat, he continued in a stronger voice, “The deal Picasso offered was twenty grand to watch us have sex for three hours—doing whatever he’d like us to do. If we’re not up for that, he’ll do you himself for ten grand.”
Her frown remained. She crossed her arms. “I think I’m insulted.” She glanced around and thought about it. “Yep, I am. Insulted.”
Taft laughed and wandered into the adjoining room opposite the dildo mecca, where restraints and whips and blindfolds abounded. He paused at a display case holding sterling silver, platinum, and jeweled chokers.
And studded dog collars with matching leashes.
“He did offer another ten grand if you danced for him first.”
“Not bad. I feel better.”
He leaned over and crossed his forearms on the glass, gazing inside. The light from the display illuminated his face. His male beauty made Zoe ache to touch him. Kiss him. But was that all? Was this completely physical? She felt more; she just wasn’t sure what. And didn’t know what to do about it.
Zoe hugged herself and wandered past Taft and the display case. She paused at the last of three stools and eased to the edge, hooking the spike of one boot in the bottom rung.
“It’s a good ruse to get Picasso alone,” she said. “What did you tell him?”
“When he asked if I’d share you, I told him no,” he said, his voice soft but firm. “That you were special. When the other offers came, I told him he could get porn free on the Internet.”
“Hey.” She uncrossed her arms, pressed her palms to the back of the stool and shot him a teasingly sultry look. “Not with the likes of me.”
“That’s what he said.”
She and Taft laughed at the same time and a new intimacy seemed to fill the space. The sight of his smile did sweet, twisty things to Zoe’s heart.
She cared, dammit. She cared a lot. He was sucking her in.
