A Look At Julia from 'The Virgin and the Playboy' & 1NS Celebration! ( #1NS #birthday @decadentpub @katerichards09 #books )

..Today we have Julia visiting from the story The Virgin and the Playboy, 1Night Stand #3. Welcome!

..Julia, what would you like to tell readers about yourself?
......* I met Mark through the auspices of the amazing Madame Eve. I’d never been with a man before, not intimately, and I was beginning to think I never would. Seems like there’s a window, you know? Maybe eighteen to twenty-three?
......* Oh I’m sorry…how old did you say you are? And have you…? Oh, whew! I didn’t want to hurt your feelings if you hadn’t done the deed as they say.

..Does your author ever try to take over the story? And how do you deal with it?
......* Oh, she’s trouble that one! She often tries to lay out pages and pages of instructions, a syn…something, and we’re supposed to live our lives according to those directions. Really? Would you do that?

..If you were taken out of the story and placed into your author’s world, what would be the first thing you’d do?
......* Well, would I have Mark with me? I’d miss him otherwise. And I don’t suppose she’d share her man, she seems pretty attached. Actually, I’d love to go with her to a convention, sign my own books.

..If you could pull your author into your world, what do you think would happen to them?
......* I would insist she go on a 1Night Stand date, assuming her husband stays in the original world. I think Madame would show her a good time. It doesn’t count as cheating in fiction, does it? I don’t know if Kate would buy that….but it’s a good fantasy.

..What was the best sexual experience you’ve had?
......* My very first night with Mark, of course. I’m not sorry at all I waited, he was worth the wait.

..Where do you see yourself in the future? What do you hope to accomplish?
......* We plan to start our family soon, and travel, see the world. Mark’s brother is a pilot and he and his 1Night Stand date are our favorite couple to double date with. We always have a great time!

..Now for some author information!
......* My author is Kate Richards. Kate Richards divides her time between Los Angeles and the High Sierras. She would gladly spend all her days in the mountains, but she’d miss the beach…and her very supportive husband’s commute would be three hundred miles. Wherever she is, she loves to explore all different kinds of relationships in her stories. She doesn’t believe one-size-fits-all, and whether her characters live BDSM, ménage, GLBT or any other kind of lifestyle, it’s the love, the joy with one another, that counts.

..Now for some book information!
..A look into the story
~ Blurb ~
......* Julie, accidental virgin, has waited longer than she ever planned to lose her virginity and join everyone else she knows in dating reality. Embarrassed at her plight, she has made arrangements with to meet with a handsome stranger for one night of no commitment required sexuality, without having to admit she'd never made love before.
......* Mark is the one single guy left in his group of friends. As such, he is known for the bevy of lovelies he dates, and his stories of wild exploits between the sheets. His participation in is on a dare, and he has no idea that his date is...less experienced than he is used to. And so much more...
......* When they enter the penthouse suite in Las Vegas, they enter a chamber designed for luxury and booked for a 1NightStand. ..
~ Excerpt ~
......* Mark was surprised to hear a knock at the door. His one-night-stand should have her own key, so he opened the door expecting to see housekeeping, or maybe room service with the drinks he had ordered. Instead, he faced a very petite, very determined looking young woman with a hand raised as if to knock again. He took in her alluring, feminine figure, wavy brown hair around a pink-cheeked face, and wide blue eyes gazing curiously back at him.
......* “I take it you’re not housekeeping, then?”
......* A pucker formed between her straight brows. “No, did you want me to be?” She jutted her chin toward him and dropped the hand that still hung in midair.
......* “Absolutely not,” he said, looking up and down the hallway. “I had asked for some extra towels…” He trailed off, and a moment of silence stretched out while they looked at each other. When she didn’t say anything, he smiled and said, “I’m Mark and you’re?”
......* “Julia.” She spoke so quietly he had to lean in to hear her.
......* She certainly didn’t act like someone who was brazen enough to book a one-night-stand with a stranger. “Just to be sure—Madame Evangeline sent you?”
......* She looked up and met his eyes. “Yes. May I come in?”
......* “Of course, please.” He stepped back to let her pass, following her with his eyes as she dropped her bag on a suitcase rack by the door and walked to the windows. She looked out, facing away from him. “Didn’t you get a card key, too?”
......* Standing between the parted draperies, she held it up for him to see. “Yep. I just felt funny using it when you were already here.”
......* He joined her and looked over her shoulder out the window. She froze when he stood so close behind her. That was a surprise.
