What happens in an airport lounge... ~ @LaylaTarar @decadentpub #MWTease #interracial #romance

Welcome to the middle of the week!
Mid Week Tease is an event where authors are spotlighting a few lines or a paragraph or two from their stories. Readers, you get to sample some delicious snippets and be teased, titillated and tantalized into the weekend!

This week I'm happy to give my blog over to Tara Quan, author of Delicious Delay, an on-sale story from Decadent Publishing. And, the cover of the book...talk about delicious! Enjoy!

First, here are some words from Tara. :)
* Thank you for letting me share my multicultural contemporary romance, Delicious Delay. The book is currently on sale for a limited time. You can grab it for only 99c from Amazon, B&N, AllRomance, and Decadent. (Links are below.)
* After my own not-so-delicious delay in the Middle East, I set out to write something funny, sexy, and set entirely in an airport lounge. It’s a quick summer read meant to make your mouth water (from the food...) and your toes curl. I hope I’ve piqued your interest enough to give one of the links below a click. ~Tara Quan

~ Blurb ~
* Stranded in a Middle Eastern airport, Michelle Day finds herself the object of interest for an abrasive, but all-too-sexy stranger—a stranger who tempts her with the forbidden in a land where indecency could get her killed. But how does one say no to such a deliciously, relentless pursuit?
* Khalid Al Dehri takes one look at the red-headed spitfire in the business class lounge and knew he’d either been transported to heaven—or hell. Her tart response to his surliness intrigues him beyond all propriety and the longer he spends in her company, the more he can’t deny his forbidden attraction. But will she explore the sensuality between them or will society’s rules keep them apart?
~ The Tease! (a.k.a. Excerpt) ~
* He grinned. “So I have a proposal.”
* She tried to get her breathing under control, without much success. “Why am I sure it’s an indecent one?”
* He motioned his head toward the far end of the lounge. Latticed wooden screens gave that particular section more privacy. In an L-shaped room, the tucked-away location prevented a direct line of sight from the dining or reception areas.
* He got up and offered her his hand. She hesitated for a long moment before taking it. With faltering footsteps, she followed him. More private or not, limits on how far this could go existed due to them being in an airport lounge. Since her self-control had chosen today to take a vacation, she appreciated the imposed constraint.
* He lowered himself onto a plush leather sofa deep inside the cordoned area. With walls on either side and screens strategically angled, the space seemed to have been designed as a spot for people to nap.
* On the brink of crossing a dangerous line, she hesitated. “What exactly do you have in mind?”
* “I’m just giving you the opportunity to have your way with me,” he offered, his face the picture of innocence.
* She hadn’t expected that answer. “I don’t quite follow.”
* He kicked one of his legs out and tangled it with hers. She stumbled and instinctively moved her hands forward to brace herself. Her palms flattened over his hard muscled chest when she landed.
* She traced the shape of his pectorals. “What do you do all day? Work out?”
* He chuckled, the low rumble all male. “I have access to the best personal trainers money can buy. They help keep me honest.”
* She shook her head in disbelief as the man preened. “Have you heard of a concept called humility?”
* “It’s not one of my virtues,” he admitted. “I’ve never understood the point.”
* She sighed. “It’s the polite thing to do.”
* He placed his forefinger under her chin and tipped her head up, his expression playful. “So what is a sweet, polite, goody two shoes doing on top of me?”

This is a fantastic tease. Why don't I ever have this kind of fun when I'm stuck in an airport? ;-D
