Overview

Private Sessions by Tori Carrington



The Players:

1) Caleb Payne. Calculating entrepreneur. Avowed bachelor. He takes what he wants—in the boardroom and the bedroom!

2) Bryna Metaxas. Emotionally invested in her family's business. About to enter into a business deal with Caleb that will shock her on every level…And she'll love every minute of it.

The Situation:

Dangerously hot, filled with steamy sexual tension and cold business machinations.

The Turning Point:

Caleb makes a critical error. And in the fallout, he realizes that he's lost far more than he gained—he's given up his one chance at happiness. He'd have to pull off the coup of a lifetime to earn Bryna's trust—and love—again.

Then again, that's all part of the plan…

About the Author



Nicknamed the dynamic duo, the husband-and-wife writing team of Lori and Tony Karayianni began writing together in 1984, a scant 10 months after they threw caution to the wind and shamelessly moved in together. Twisting the old adage "Life is stranger than fiction," they describe their lives as being "better than fiction."

While their backgrounds couldn't be more different--Tony was born near Olympia, Greece, and raised in Athens, while Lori is a Midwestern native of Toledo, Ohio-- they credit their successful test run and love for each other for leading them to the altar in 1987, and point to their love for romance and travel for leading them to writing.

They take great pleasure in constantly redefining exactly what constitutes "and they lived happily ever after" in both their writing and their personal lives. In their books you'll see Tony's keen eye for plotting and hunger for adventure, and Lori's love for vivid characters and the fundamental ties that bind us all.

Under their pen name Tori Carrington, Lori and Tony hit the ground running with their first book for Harlequin Temptation, Constant Craving, in January 1999 and they show no sign of slowing anytime soon. Their own five book miniseries, The Magnificent McCoy Men, launched in July 1999 with License to Thrill, followed by the second book The P.I. Who Loves Her in March 2000. The third book in the series, For Her Eyes Only, hits stores in July 2000, while the fourth, You Only Love Once, is scheduled for release in March 2001. The miniseries wraps up with the final book, Never Say Never, in the Fall of 2001.

In addition to the rave reviews Lori and Tony regularly receive for their work, their first book, Constant Craving, was a finalist in the Best First Book category for the 1999 Golden Quill Award, and it along with License to Thrill have been given the nomination nod for Best First Book and Best Harlequin Temptation in the 1999 Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Awards. License to Thrill has also earned a finalist spot for Best Short Series Contemporary in the prestigious Holt Medallion Awards.

The writers point out that they'd be outrageously happy if this was all that was going on in their lives, but the truth is they have other news to share on both the personal and professional front. They're thrilled to report that they'll make their Silhouette Special Edition debut in November 2000 with their much-loved book, Just Eight Months Old..., and that Harlequin has signed them up to write not one but two books for the new Blaze series set to launch in 2001.

They also share that with these successes they'll finally be able to begin building their dream vacation home--on the little piece of heaven they own 35 kilometers north of Athens, Greece--hopefully sometime later this year. That is if they can find the time to oversee the arrangements!

Lori and Tony and their alter ego Tori Carrington would love to hear from you! Visit them at their ever-changing web site at temptationauthors.com/tori where you can learn even more about them, their books, thumb through treasured photographs, and enter fun drawings!

Caleb Payne gets what he wants, whenever he wants, and doesn't take no for an answer. Bryna Metaxas wants to help her family business and doesn't care about who she has to make a deal with to do it. The only way Bryna can see to help the business is to ask Caleb Payne, even if he associates with her family's arch-enemy, Philippidis. Bryna had to get the working capital to help the business expand or it would go under like many of the business in the area. What she hadn't counted on was the attraction she felt for Caleb. But she could not fall for her arch-enemy's associate, it just wouldn't work. Caleb Payne had no intention of helping Bryna Metaxas or her family. However if the hot looks she was giving him was any indications of the fun they could have together who was he to complain? The heat from the "Private Sessions" that Caleb gives Bryna makes the pages come alive. Private Sessions is the first in the Private Scandals series; this story is a continuation of Tori's story "The Body that Launch a Thousand Ships" which was in Blazing Bedtime Stories, Volume III. I really enjoyed visiting with the Metaxas family once more. You get to see what happens after the boys came home from Greece.

In Earnest, Washington, an employee at her family's firm Metaxas Limited, Bryna Metaxas proposes a partnership with business mogul Caleb Payne of Seattle. Whereas she is talking business only, he remains upset that a relative of hers wrecked a deal while also admiring her beauty. He decides to collect on the Metaxas debt by seducing Bryna. Bryna is attracted to Caleb, but though he enjoys sex with her, his attitude is placing her below his partners and his mom on his pecking order. When he is forced to analyze his desire for her, Caleb realizes what started as a payback has backfired as he has fallen in love. Now he must come up with the deal of the century or lose everything that matters. Although the relationship between the lead couple never evolves outside of the bedroom (extremely loose definition of boudoir) and the boardroom, readers will enjoy this fun sizzling contemporary romance. Even with plenty of sex seemingly everywhere in the Pacific northwest, the story line will remind readers of the Doris Day-Rock Hudson fluffy comedies like Pillow Talk; with obviously a lot more blaze. Team Carrington provides their fans with an entertaining boardroom romance. Harriet Klausner
