“I had the best intentions, but I was wrong.”
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Book Length (Est.): 108 Pages
Boudoir photographer Emberly Blair uses her unusual creative talents to do more than snap steamy photos. Her passion? Using artistic sensuality to help other women find their hidden beauty. Rooted in a family tragedy, Emberly’s work is her life’s mission, and she takes seriously every nuance of light and shadow in the images she creates. What she doesn’t take seriously is the uptight millionaire who lands on her doorstep in need of a good headshot, a female escort, and someone to curb his sarcastic tongue.
IT genius and philanthropist Seth Owens doesn’t pay much attention to anything not connected to an electronic grid—until he meets smart and sexy Emberly Blair. He considers her work superficial smoke-and-mirrors, but knows that where there’s smoke there’s flame, and Emberly is it. When Emberly suggests they make a trade—she’ll accompany him to a dedication event where he is the reluctant star if he’ll be her plus-one at a wedding—Seth agrees to walk into the fire.
The fire becomes a sensual blaze that consumes Seth and Emberly. But just as they begin to believe that their love might be strong enough to burn high and hot for a lifetime, Seth makes a move that Emberly can’t forgive. It will take more than a few sparks to relight their relationship—and a deeper understanding by both of them of what it takes to forge a forever love.

Emberly is a ball of fire wrapped up in sarcasm and hilarity. The stuff that comes out of this woman’s mouth will either completely offend you or have you laughing out loud. I’m guilty of the latter. She likes to call things as she sees them and she has absolutely no filter.
“I’ll have you know, I’m a great roomie in a hotel. I won’t make a peep if you slap the salami after catching a glimpse of my side boob.”
Seth was interested in Emberly the moment he saw her, but once he discovers her profession he’ll form his own bias opinions and in doing so he’ll reap her wrath for them, especially when he needs her to put those skills to work for him.
“His life had gone from, head down, nose to the grindstone simple to three-hundred pound, seventy-year-old drag queen, giving a lap dance, in short-shorts, with his old, wrinkled balls falling out the leg hole wrong.”
A Daring Proposition is a laugh out loud fun and entertaining read. It puts two unlikely people together, throws in a proposition neither can resist, and tops it off with a sizzling and intense romance. Of course there’s the drama that will put a little snag in their romance, but good story doesn’t have drama. At least the intentions come from a good place…and it’s not his wallet.
