Sinful Rewards 7 – The Point Of No Return
by Cynthia Sax
It is my very great pleasure to have a guest post from the very talented Cynthia Sax...who shares her musings...
Have you ever taken a step and knew your life would be forever changed?
I played in business for decades before I took my writing career seriously (this is why I write about billionaire heroes – I’ve met some extremely sexy secret billionaires). When I started the transition, I took a business contract gig for six months, then wrote for three months, then took another business contract gig for six months. I had a foot in each career, could go either way if I wished.
I stopped taking contract gigs. For a year, I told myself I could go back to business if the writing didn’t work out. My skills were still current. There wasn’t that large of a gap on my resume.
At the twelve month point, I couldn’t fool myself any longer. If I continued to write, I’d be fully committed. I’d reached the point of no return. Today, although I hold onto my accounting designation, paying the annual fees, I’d find it difficult to land an equivalent position in business.
In Sinful Rewards, my sizzling hot contemporary erotic romance serial, Bee has been telling herself that her relationship with Hawke, her bad boy biker, is temporary, that it isn’t really affecting her relationship with Nicolas, her handsome billionaire. She’s been juggling the two men, balancing her time between them, keeping these two worlds separate and all of her options open.
This changes in Sinful Rewards 7. Bee is faced with a series of decisions, prompted by both men. She can’t push her choices forward any longer. There are to be no more delays. She has to decide now and what she decides will propel her over the point of no return.
Of course, no decision is completely irreversible. I could take entry level business positions, gradually working my way up to the level I enjoyed before focusing on my writing career. Bee could overturn her decisions also, find a way to redeem herself with the other man, to accept what she declines in Sinful Rewards 7.
But our situations won’t ever return to ‘normal’. I won’t have the same business career as I did previously. Bee won’t have the same relationships. What we’ve done will affect us. This might not be a bad thing. It will simply be different.
What have been some of your life changing decisions, decisions that pushed you forward, never to go back?
Sinful Rewards 7: A Billionaires and Bikers Novella
By: Cynthia Sax
Releasing January 20th, 2015
Bee Carter has been offered everything she has ever dreamed of—a caring, lasting relationship with a handsome, often charming billionaire; the permanent home she's never had but has always craved; and wealth to buy the designer fashions she loves, support her hard-working mother, and ensure her acceptance by Chicago's elite.
To obtain what she's desired for so long, she has to do only two things: Walk away from her best friend, a woman who is destined to betray her … and end her passionate nightly encounters with a certain tattooed biker, a former Marine who can never give her what she needs.
Her answer should be clear, but the heart has a way of complicating even the most straightforward decisions.
Forty minutes later, my brain is overflowing with military and biker speak. The guys joke and laugh, exchanging rather racy, sometimes extremely graphic, and horrifyingly violent stories. Several of the old ladies have joined us, sitting on their guys’ laps.
I shouldn’t fit in. I’m not dressed in black leather. I don’t sport any tatts or scars or excessive body hair. Eighty Proof, the bartender, sets another ginger ale and lime in front of me. I’m not drinking, don’t ride, haven’t served our country.
Yet they don’t seem to care. I’m one of them. My chest warms. I’m accepted, comfortable, and safe. I belong here.
A muscular arm hooks around my waist. A bolt of electric awareness flows from my form to the man’s large frame. I react this way to only one person. A smile curls my lips. “I almost gave up on you.”
“Liar.” Hawke laughs, the sound coiling deep in my stomach. “You were having a good time.” He pulls me snug against his muscle, his grip thrillingly secure. “And you’d never give up on me.” He presses his mouth to my neck and I tremble, his lips firm and hot, branding my skin. “You’re my girl.”
Why does that sound so right? I tilt my head to the side, giving him more access to me, encouraging him without words.
“Are you ready to go?” Hawke mouths against my earlobe, tormenting me with his slow seduction, his stubble leaving a delicious burn on my cheek.
I nod, unable to speak, my brain fried by our connection. This physical, emotional, spiritual link grows stronger with every touch. I have to walk away from him, to end this, while I still can.
Hawke flips me over and slings me across his right shoulder, the impact pushing the air from my lungs. “We’re leaving.” He slaps my ass, the sound loud, the contact titillating. The men cheer and my face heats.
“I have to stop being picked up at bars,” I muse, splaying my fingers over my abductor’s lower back, enthralled by his rippling muscles.
Hawke’s shoulders shake as he laughs. “You’re priceless, love.”
