Jess Ludlow thought she was agreeing to work on the shop floor, not all fours.

Jess Ludlow's spent three months trying to pretend she didn't kiss two work colleagues after a staff dinner. They might not all work in the same department store but they're employees of the same parent company and these things have a habit of refusing to be forgotten. The biggest problem is deciding what she regrets more—kissing Tyler and Sebastian at all, or walking away.

Both men have a vacancy only Jess can fill. A staffing dilemma gives them the perfect excuse to draft her in, and a brief window of opportunity to convince her they have unfinished business. Tyler can sweet-talk her in English, Sebastian's fluent in Swedish, so between them (which is where Jess belongs), they're ready to pull out all the stops.

And the nipple clamps.

Reader Advisory: This book contains a spitroast, nipple clamps and lots of dirty talk in Swedish

Meet the Author

Scarlett Parrish was born at a young age on Planet Earth where she still spends most of her time. Possessed of an unholy lust for James Purefoy, she sometimes ventures out to stock up on chocolate, hurrying home again before the sun burns her to a cinder. Once James realises she's the only woman who can make him happy, she plans to rise up, take over the world and have a nice cup of tea.Clearly, she forgot to take her medication before writing this author bio, but she does have splendid taste in music, the ability to leap tall buildings in a single bound and no idea why she's talking about herself in the third person.

Read an Excerpt

Three months ago I attended a staff dinner dance too far from home to make for a comfortable, quick drive back. Besides which, I wanted to have a drink, so I opted to book a hotel room for the night. That way I could taxi back and fall into bed within minutes of leaving my work colleagues if I fancied. I hadn’t had too much to drink—only a few glasses of wine, and white, at that. Even one glass of red was enough to send me loopy. I’d thought I was playing it safe. Cue a casual conversation with Sebastian, a suggestion that, as he and Tyler were carpooling, they could drive me back to wherever I was staying... Before I knew it, I was in a car with the two best-looking Pearson’s employees in the region, desperately chanting to myself, Don’t say anything stupid, Jess. Don’t say anything stupid. Turned out Tyler—the Manager of his store no less—was the one to take that step. And he was the designated driver, stone cold sober. After pulling up outside my hotel, he looked over his shoulder and smirked. "Here we are." "Yeah." His smile was infectious—I couldn’t help returning it. "Here we are." I’d not yet laid my hand on the door handle. It would have seemed rude to just hop out and go upstairs, but by the same token I had no idea how to wrap up the conversation. "Would you think I was pulling rank if I mentioned a goodnight kiss?" I knew I hadn’t had that much to drink, and alcohol always seemed to affect my balance and speech first of all, anyway. Not my hearing. Three glasses of white spread over the whole evening, with a meal and soft drinks, too... I definitely wasn’t tipsy enough for my ears to have stopped working. "I...what?" "Jesus, Ty." Sebastian, who worked in the same store as Tyler, as his menswear manager, play-punched him on the arm. "You’d take advantage of a drunk woman?" "I’m not drunk." "See?" Tyler held up both his palms in a perfectly-executed gesture of innocence. "She’s not drunk." "Yes, because that’s exactly what a sober person would say." "Are you accusing me of...?" I began, but the look on Sebastian’s face halted me in my tracks. God damn it—I’d been talking to him all night and never seen him in that light before. The half-light as it was, from some nearby lampposts and the neon sign of my hotel. He was leaner than Tyler, but in no way less of a presence. There was a quiet intensity to him that I’d noticed during our conversation that evening, an ability to make me feel like the only woman in the room. It wasn’t that he’d stared at me while we conversed—that would have been too aggressive. But he’d paid attention and made me feel witty, urbane, like the sort of woman who stood a chance. I’d not had much to do with him up until now—we worked in different branches of Pearson’s—but this evening had thrown us together, almost like it was meant to happen. Like it was planned.

    Temporary Insanity by Victoria Blisse I don¿t find anything insa

    Temporary Insanity by Victoria Blisse
    I don’t find anything insane about this story at all. What I feel is jealousy. 
    Caroline is a temp that moves from job to job. This is not her choice of employment. It’s just because she can’t find a job that she actually got a degree for but she has to work to pay the bills.  She stumbles on to a job where she is taking over for someone on maternity leave. Sure it’s a steady job for a while but its crappy work in her eyes. One day she is told to go make some copies and this is when things start to get interesting. As she goes into the copy room she walks in on two guys making out. Not only does she not make a sound to let them know she is there, she is getting very turned on. The guys didn’t mind her watching if she didn’t. Turns out she likes to be a voyeur but what she would really like to do is join in on the fun.
    After the encounter she gets an email from one of her coworkers to come to an office at 5:30 and take a seat but don’t make a sound.  How in the world are you supposed to work for two hours knowing what might happen later?  Well today Caroline’s life is going to change once she steps foot in that office. Will she just watch or will she get to take part? 
    Well guess what I am not going to tell you but once you read it you would be jealous too!
    This was some fantastic writing by Victoria. I received this book as a gift from the author.
