My Guilty Pleasure
The Martini Dares
Author: Jamie Denton
The elite Martinis & Bikinis Club challenges you to risk it all. But once you pick a dare, there's no
backing out...Everyone thinks Josephine Winfield is a good girl, but underneath she's bad to the bone.
Very bad.Why else would she pick up sexy Sebastian Stanhope over a martini? The fact the two of them
will be working together on a scandalous case doesn't even stop her from a romp between the sheets!
Sebastian knows this fling can only lead to disaster. He's her boss--with fringe benefits. Meantime Joey
wants to see how far she can push it--with a Martini Dare. "The time for revealing secrets has come.
Open your heart to the one closest to it." Can she confess she's truly fallen in love with Sebastian or is
this only a case of lust in the first degree?
For Jamie Denton there's nothing quite as heartwarming as the happy ending for a hero and heroine who
overcome the odds. In fact, if you ask her, she'll tell you that anything in life that's easy just isn't much
fun. Always one to look for challenges in life, Jamie embraced her first real challenge at the age of 16
when she married her high school sweetheart. A whole lot of years later, she can still remember the first
time she saw her own personal hero and knew, even at that tender age, that he was the one. With a
history like that, what else could she write except romance novels? Several writing awards later, it's
obvious her personal life wasn't the only place she made the right choice.Although writing takes much of
her time, in her spare moments away from the computer she usually has a book (what else but a
romance?) or a cross-stitch project within reach. She enjoys cooking, gardening, and has a love hate
relationship when it comes to remodeling her turn of the century home, which Jamie and her husband
refer to as the Little Money Pit on the Prairie. Now that her nest is officially empty, she showers her
affection on her three, four-legged "babies": a mammoth Maine Coon, Max (short for Maximum Load), her
adorable little Red Stag Miniature Pinscher, Strat who loves to cuddle in her lap while she writes, and the
dumbest smart dog she's ever owned, the family's yellow Labrador Retriever, Dauber, whom she claims is
appropriately named.When asked why she writes romances, Jamie credits her sister-in-law. During a
difficult pregnancy when all activities were strictly forbidden, Jamie received two grocery sacks (before the
days of plastic!) filled with novels. Every one was a romance, so during those long days of forced
inactivity, Jamie read, and read, and read some more.She claims that during those hours while she was
swept away by the compelling romances of dashing heroes and feisty heroines, she was able to set
aside her worries. She never forgot that feeling, and
