Executive Decision Boxed Set is a binge reading must for those who like an intense,
fast-paced story with hot romance between characters who are more than up for the
task.
Here’s what you get:
An Executive Decision – Book One in
The Executive Decision Series
Overworked CEO Ellison Thorne has
no time for sex, let alone romance. The only answer, at least where his retiring
business partner Beverly is concerned, is a no-strings sex clause in her replacement’s
contract, designed to make Ellis’ busy life easier – and hotter. But she’s joking,
right?
When Dee Henning takes over Beverly’s
job, sparks fly between her and Ellis, but work takes priority in driven Dee’s life
too. Can one night of passion in a Paris hotel room prove Beverly’s Sex Clause is
their secret to success in the boardroom and the bedroom, and what will happen if
that private clause becomes public knowledge?
Identity Crisis – Book Two in The
Executive Decision Series
This romantic suspense novel is recommended
to hopeless romantics who know love triumphs over all.
Tess Delaney is the hottest property
in romantic fiction, but the reclusive Tess has a secret – she’s really the alter
ego of Garrett Thorne, bad boy brother of business tycoon Ellison Thorne. When Tess
is nominated for the Golden Kiss Award, Garrett recruits PR specialist, Kendra Davis,
to keep his secret and be Tess for the awards despite their mutual animosity.
Hatred turns to scorching passion,
but when Tess is stalked by a rabid fan, an identity crisis is eclipsed by a battle
for survival. It seems Tess, the woman who doesn’t exist, just might understand
Kendra and Garrett’s hearts better than they do.
The Exhibition – Book Three in The
Executive Decision Series
Successful NYC gallery owner, Stacie
Emerson, is ex-fiancée to one Thorne brother and ex-wife to the other. Though the
three have made peace, Ellison Thorne’s friend, wildlife photographer, Harris Walker,
still doesn’t like her. When Stacie convinces Harris to exhibit his work for the
opening of her new gallery she never intended to include him in her other more hazardous
plans. But when those plans draw the attention of dangerous business tycoon, Terrance
Jamison, Harris comes to her aid. In the shadow of a threat only Stacie understands,
can she dare let Harris into her life and make room for love?

An Executive Decision 

Thanks so much for having me over on Romance Lives Forever for
day 4 of The Executive Decisions Blog Tour.

An Executive Decision, Because It’s Complicated

Instead of thinking of erotica and
romance as genres, I prefer to think of them as psychology in story form. The longer
I write stories, the more I believe that it really is all about sex, just like Freud
said. We humans are designed to live in relationship with other humans, and that
gets messy and complicated. First there’s chemistry and romance and sex, then we’re
off and running with a story that has all the best things and all the worst things
and all the archetypal things that make us human. All those messy complicated, chemistry-riddled
human things may point us in the direction of that most convoluted of paths to the
much-coveted Happily Ever After we all long for, but there’s a lot more involved
in actually getting there. There’s all the neuroses, all the niggles, all the fears,
frustrations and personal baggage that we all have to overcome on the way. And the
more sexy and complicated and messy it gets on the route to that Happy Ever After,
the bigger the pay-off at the end
I originally wrote An Executive Decision
as a very naughty novella called Learning the Business. The story was based on what
might happen if there really was an Executive Sex Clause between a CEO and his second
in command. The theory is that it would improve productivity, enhance creativity
and reduce stress if busy executives had a source of stress-free, no-strings attached
sex available when they needed it. But what began as just an erotic romp became
a much deeper look into the lives of two complicated, complex characters, Ellison
Thorne and his ambitious protégé, Dee Henning. Both Dee and Ellis are people so
into their work that they have no time for sex. Both are people who are a bit dense
where relationships are concerned. Both are people who feel safe keeping others
at arm’s length. And their story wasn’t played out in a vacuum. There are family
members, ex lovers, bumbling — if well-meaning – friends. There are disgruntled
colleagues, there is sabotage, and the threat of environmental crime.
When a series of events drives the
two into each other’s arms, the fireworks begins, and the Executive Sex Clause,
which started out as a joke, ends up to be a whole lot more.
As what started out to be a short
erotic tryst grew to be a full-length novel and then into a trilogy, I realized
that it wasn’t the kinky Sex Clause that drove the story, but rather Dee and Ellis
with all their quirks and foibles. They were so much more than just two people having
lots of sex in the work place, so much more that a man and a woman falling in love.
Throw in the comedy of errors that ends up letting the Sex Clause cat out of the
bag and that’s where things get messy and delicious.
Though my alter-ego, K D Grace, writes very steamy erotica,
she’s a romantic at heart. And though I happily and unabashedly write romance, I
like my romance served hot – very hot. I never close the bedroom doors because I
think the pursuit of that relationship deserves to be rewarded in a very carnal
way. Whether I’m writing as K D Grace or Grace Marshall, there will always be lots
of sex because sex is as much a part of who we are as walking upright and having
big brains. In fact having big brains makes the sex a helluva lot more interesting.
It’s no longer just about procreation. It’s about magic and recreation and le Petit
Mort and rebirth and fireworks and blow your mind, feel-good, and break your heart
feel-terrible. Simply put, it’s complicated just like our big brains and our need
for relationship.

The top bloggers (by page load) for the month of June
resulted in a tie for third place in the top five. This month was unusual in
that the blog was closed for a period due to my illness. The good news is that
I did not have a heart attack. The bad news is that I learned my heart did have
a slight weakness that needed medication. I’ve been on the mend and taking
better care of myself as a result.
In June, we had a few character interviews, which were well
received, and every day that we had a posting saw top numbers. The article I
wrote for the Marketing for Romance Writers blog tour (in preparation for
Marketing Summer Camp) scored nearly twice as many hits as the next in line.
That was gratifying, and a surprise. Model and photographer Cherif Fortin and his
business partner Lynn Sanders hit it out of the park with their interview this
month. I had them on twice because their article was so unique. They helped
pioneer a new media that combines film, ebooks, audio books, and images to make
a new media. You can learn more about it at this URL. http://is.gd/a3oh1m
