By Virginia Nelson
Have you ever been afraid to go after what you wanted? Maybe felt that with just one little nudge or a ‘ten seconds of bravery’ moment, you could accomplish what you wanted and make your dreams come true?
I gotta be honest…I’ve felt that way hundreds of times. Given the opportunity, for instance, at a lot of book conferences, I hide in my room. I got all stealth/ninja mode and lurk in corners, listening to conversations to see how people interact. I tell myself it is for my books, that it helps me write characters that are more real and who really feel something.
To be honest? I do this because I’m scared. I’m petrified I’m going to fumble, manage a social face plant—because I usually do—and ostracize myself. I think it was Mark Twain who said something about not saying anything being the better choice…since people might think you were stupid, but opening your mouth removed all doubt.
I took that idea and made a short, sexy story. What if a woman, afraid of living her life because she didn’t want to get hurt, was hypnotically suggested to do what she dared?
To find out what happened, I guess you would have to read a book, but what thing do you wish you dared to do?
Who knew quitting could be so hot?
Carnie Sabatina wants to quit smoking, but is a hypnotist really the answer? Enter Doctor McSexy and a trip down the rabbit hole that not only breaks her bad habit, but sets her passion on fire.
Is it tempting fate to take control?
Michael Schommer's love life crashed and burned when his ex dumped him for his best friend. Is it too much to ask for a woman who wants to share more with him than a quick roll between the sheets?
Enter Patient McHottie, whose bad habits open a Pandora's box of secret cravings for the hypnotist and the patient....
One hypnotic suggestion sends them up in flames, but will temptation and passion be enough to turn their parlor tricks into happily ever after?

About the Author
Virginia Nelson believed them when they said, “Write what you know.” Small town girl writing small town romance, her characters are as full of flaws, misunderstandings, and flat out mistakes as Virginia herself. When she’s not writing or plotting to take over the world, she likes to hang out with the greatest kids in history, play in the mud, drive far too fast, and scream at inanimate objects. Virginia likes knights in rusted and dinged up armor, heroes that snarl instead of croon, and heroines who can’t remember to say the right thing even with an author writing their dialogue. Her books are full of snark, sex, and random acts of ineptitude—not always in that order.
