Synopsis When millionaire bad boy, Will Thornton, tries to buy computer-geek Kate Kelly’s building out from under her, she refuses to sell. Will might be uber rich, and super successful but she won’t be bullied. Trouble is, she didn’t expect Will to look like one of her fantasy heroes, or to make her heart beat a little too fast. She’s prepared to wait him out, but it'll take every ounce of her self-control to win this game.
With millions of dollars on the line, Will is positive he can make Kate sell. He’s played the game better than anybody and charming is his middle name. Problem is, the snarky, geeky, computer-wiz is nothing like he imagined—impossibly cute and a match for him in every way.
The game is on but can two such radically different people come out winners in the game of seduction?

My Thoughts
The Seduction Game is a story to love.  Despite its very salacious title, the true strength of this read lies in the fact the the two main characters do not immediately succumb to their more wanton urges.
Kate in particular is presented to the reader as a whole person, resplendent  in all of her nerdy glory.
(Star Trek, Firefly, and My Little Pony references included)
Will is revealed to the reader through the eyes of Kate, making him a hunky literary present, tied with a most beautiful emotionally appealing bow.

Though Will is worldly, and can be ruthless in business; he never lords his wealth or experience over Kate.  He instead revels in every aspect of his lady love, and never turns up his nose at her humble existence.
Kate is allowed to be strong, vulnerable, flawed, and perfect to Will; without losing her essence in the process.
The heat level of this romance is a low simmer.  It builds over time, in spite of the relatively short length of the novel.
If you like realism in your romance and sense with your sensuality...The Seduction Game is a definite winner for you!

Synopsis: Before the end of the night, they’ll break all the rules.
For just one night, Georgia Taylor wants to forget about her demanding job and the everyday struggles of being a single mom. Her track record with men is pitiful, but that’s fine because her responsibilities don’t leave room for love anyway. The new online dating site is perfect for what she’s after.

But Georgia’s plans fly out the window when Brent Turner, aka Sexy Dad and father of her daughter’s classmate, turns out to be her Internet date, therefore, eliminating any possibility for a night without consequences.

My Thoughts
A Night of Misbehaving is a wonderfully written novella with a tight and focused plot that allows readers to fully enjoy the passionate interplay between Georgia and Brent.
Georgia is a very no nonsense character who is very good at giving just as good as she gives.
Brent is very sweet and very "knight in shining..."  He is quite the man, but never afraid to cater to his woman.
This is a very sweet and honest story that proves "moms are sexy too!
All of Brent Turner’s honorable intentions fly out the window when he sees highly strung “Super Mom” waiting for her date at the bar. Determined to win Georgia’s trust and show her a good time, their no-strings evening promises to become so much more…until, that is, she discovers he’s really trying to win her vote.
