Weekend Dirty Dozen ~ Ripening Passion

November 18, 2011

Here’s another taste of Ripening Passion, our Baby Boomer love story set at a New York Center for Sexuality.

“You want to open the wine?”

“Sure.” Max took the bottle and corkscrew from her, uncorked the bottle and poured wine into two glasses.

After handing Claire a glass, he lifted his in salute and grinned confidently. “To practice.”

“To practice,” she replied, pleased that Max had apparently found his stride in the shower. His reluctance to practice seemed to have vanished. She hid a smile. “Why don’t we sit on the couch so you can munch on some crackers and cheese? I really do want you to have something in your stomach before we begin in earnest.”

He nodded his assent. “I can think of something I’d rather munch on,” he said softly, sitting down beside her.


Ripening Passion is the second book in our series based at the (fictional :)) Center for Sexuality and Sex Practices in New York City. Here are Blurbs for both books:

Ripening Passion

Work for a sex institute? Anything for her art! With her graduate stipend running out, budding artist Melissa Hopkins applies for a job where her aunt used to work – at a New York center that studies sexuality and creates educational sex videos. Sworn off women after a disastrous relationship, Center Director Harry Gage ignores the danger signals and hires the striking young woman who reminds him of his former lover. Her air of innocence will captivate center viewers, so he’s sure she’ll be a hit on camera. What he’s not prepared for is how she pierces his heart. When the sparks ignite, is it love or just sex – and what must each of them risk to find out?

Smoldering Passion

Claire Johnson’s dedication to sex—the cornerstone of her career—led her to found the Center for Sexuality and Sex Practices. Now in her fifties, she knows the Center must keep pace with the rapidly growing Baby Boomer market, so she agrees to go back on camera for a series on sex and aging. But work with her nemesis?

Former English Professor Max Wilson has championed the cause of the Center ever since his deceased wife sought the Center’s help to rekindle the nearly extinguished sexual flames of their relationship. He loves working on camera and welcomes the challenge to perform with the svelte but feisty temptress.

Sparks fly immediately on and off camera. Can either Claire or Max transform those sparks into a fire of sexual desire for their viewers? And if they succeed, what will happen when the movie’s over?
