by Cathy Williams, author of To Sin With the Tycoon
When I was asked to write a Harlequin Presents embodying one of the seven deadly sins, I was pretty excited. When I was told that my sin would be sloth, I wondered… What’s there to find sexy in a lazy man?! I had visions of someone unkempt, unshaven and overweight, sitting around with cans of lager watching television…
But sloth, of course, encompasses so much more than physical laziness! And as soon as I came to that conclusion, I knew just what I was going to write.
The guy who has it all no longer has to try, and Gabriel Cabrera is the guy who has it all. He can have any woman he wants, and he’s always wanted them lightweight and very easy on the eye. He snaps his fingers and they come running. Why waste time trying when you can have what you want without the effort?
But he meets his match in his new secretary, Alice Morgan. She’s not one of his women ready to fall over herself at his command, and she’s not the sort of decoration he’s been accustomed to having around his office. She isn’t charmed by him, and that kick-starts all sorts of unheard of responses in him! He finds that emotional laziness can’t work with her, and is there anything more sexy than the guy who finally has to really try to get the girl?
So, from wondering how on earth I could find the sexy in sloth, I discovered that, when you put the right guy and the right girl together in just the right situation, it was pretty easy after all!
I hope you enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed writing it! And I bet, readers, you can think of all sorts of guys you know who have fallen victim to this particular sin. I’d love to hear your stories, so please do share them in the comments!
About To Sin With the Tycoon:
With the quirk of an eyebrow, Gabriel Cabrera can get anything he wants!
That is, until he meets PA Alice Morgan and he realizes three things
1) He’s jealous…a first.
2) He’s in pursuit…also a first.
3) She’s immune to his charms…definitely a first!
So he’ll draw her to him–;his every word an innuendo promising pleasure, his every touch sinfully seductive. And sweet, virginal Alice will come to him willingly so Gabriel can claim his prize…
Seven Sexy Sins…The true taste of temptation!
