Short Story - Fast Love #NaughtyLovers #TheNaughtyLiterati #eroticromance #TinaDonahue

Although I write steamy romances, in real life I'm pretty shy. That's probably why I write. Even in college, I wasn't one to jump into bed with a guy I just met, no matter how cute he was or how much fun we had. Wasn't gonna happen.

However, I do have my fantasies.

When The Naughty Literati invited me to write a short story for their Naughty Lovers - Love is in the Air Anthology, I was thrilled. Then I saw the abbreviated word count for each story. Mine eventually turned out to be 9500 words. However, I'd never written a romance that short. The story also had to be erotic.

What a challenge. Personally, I like something more in an erotic romance besides how 'slot A fits into slot B'. I want a love story. A sizzling connection between a to-die-for guy and a strong woman who's been looking for Mr. Right but ending up with a lot of Mr. Wrongs.

As I started to plot The Ride of Her Lifemy story in the anthology, Maddy and Ben came alive. I liked both immediately. I felt their connection. Sure, it was physical, but also emotional. They get each other. Once the first kiss was over (always difficult to write and make it seem natural), I was hooked on these two unexpected lovers. The Ride of Her Life is hot but it's also very romantic and touching.

I want to thank the wonderful ladies at The Naughty Literati for inviting me. Their stories in the anthology are awesome.

BLURB FOR The Ride of Her Life by Tina Donahue:

He was only supposed to give her a simple ride…

Maddy’s so desperate for fun, she’s signed up for speed dating. Ew. The only thing worse than a cattle call for romance is if none of the men are interested in her.

She’s ready to ditch the event when Ben, her ride, shows up. Tall, dark, dangerously sexy, he’s an adjunct professor by day, driver by night, needing to haul in those extra bucks.

Maddy’s not complaining. Verbal foreplay and a traffic jam put the ride on ice, giving them a chance to heat things up. Soon, they’re ditching her original plan for a soft spring night of wicked romance where they’ll break all the rules and then some.
