Seduced by a voice

In Talk to Me , the heroine, Jamie, is seduced by the hero’s voice. Drew is a sports talk radio host, and Jamie is his new producer. She has to listen to him for at least twenty hours every week and his raspy, sexy voice slowly drives her insane. Once he knows how much it turns her on, he uses his words to pull her in further.

It’s a proven fact that both men and women can be turned on by listening to someone speak. Sure, you can say that seduction is an art form, but there is definitely a scientific basis to it. Tone of voice is something that distinguishes men from each other, along with other things, like their unique smell. 

Every woman is different, but they have one thing in common – if they’re lucky enough to run across a man with a great voice, they’ll respond. So what kind of voice turns you on? Are you a fan of a smooth, rich voice? A deep, commanding voice? Maybe, like Jamie, you prefer one with a bit of roughness to it. Tell me what you like in the comments below.


The elevator doors opened, and Drew hurried to unlock his apartment and punch his code into the security pad before continuing straight to his bedroom. He spun and picked Jamie up as she neared the door, and she let out a squeak of protest.


“What? I’m trying to be romantic. Efficient, too.” He grinned at her when she struggled to get out of his grip. The way she fought against him both amused and aroused him. “Not so fast,” he warned her. “I’m not planning to let you get away until I’m good and finished with you.”

Jamie cocked an eyebrow. “Good and finished? Be still my heart! Such dreamy talk from a man like you! I had no idea.”

Drew laughed and dropped Jamie on the king-size bed with enough force to make her bounce, then climbed on top of her. Before she could protest again, he’d pressed his erection into her belly and taken her lips in another deep kiss. Jamie melted beneath him, snaking her hands around his neck while his found her hips, pulling her closer. “You need to get naked,” he declared, rolling off her.

“Just me? That’s hardly fair. If I’m getting naked, then this time, so are you.” Her beautiful, full lips pouted at him.

He stood up, and in seconds, his pants and boxer briefs landed in a heap on the floor. He pulled his shirt over his head and added it to the pile. “Your turn.”

Jamie rose up on her elbows and stared at him in disbelief. “How did you do that so fast? And may I add, very nice.” She smiled and waggled her eyebrows, giving him a quick once-over.

“When I want something, I don’t waste time. And I want you naked. Now.”

He reached over and started yanking her top over her head, but she batted his hands away.

“Hey — stop that. You’re going to dislocate my shoulder with your beastlike strength.”

Drew laughed but allowed Jamie to gently pull her blouse over her head. He took it and tossed it on the chair near the window. Next she tugged her jeans off, leaving her in only her bra and panties, which Drew made short work of.

He groaned when she was fully nude. “God, you’re fucking gorgeous, you know that? And I’m gonna put my hands and my tongue and my mouth and my cock everywhere on and in your beautiful body, so you better be ready.”

Jamie shivered, and he covered her body with his, kissing her briefly before moving down her jawline, sucking and licking. This is gonna be good.

    I love the notion, too – great plot, very nice excerpt. For me, a seductive voice has just a touch of roughness in it, a catch, a hint of power the man is not unleashing, a momentary glimpse into a previous pain.

      Thanks Helen and Adriana! Well, Drew is an ex-hockey player, so his voice isn’t smooth – it’s rough, raspy, but so sexy…. His nickname while he was playing was “The Beast”. Rawr.
