Guest: BJ Wane Shares Blindsided
There’s always something new on the horizon, and in this case, I’ve found a new author. Her brand new book, Blindsided has already garnered five-star reviews from The Romance Reviews and Nichols Reviews. It’s special and different, while still being a wonderful erotic romance. This is the first in BJ’s Virginia Bluebloods Series. Take a taste of this book and see what you think.
Eve Sawyer had a bright future ahead of her when a tragic accident costs her everything. Now, twelve years later, desperation for all she has been missing compels her to seek comfort and pleasure in the arms of strangers. A few hours indulging in anonymous sex with a man named Nate gave her more pleasure than she ever dreamed possible; unfortunately past experiences with men hadn’t given her any hope that night could ever lead to anything more. After meeting Nate again and succumbing to his erotic coercion to enter into a sex-only affair, she soon discovers all the different ways a man with a creative imagination can give a woman with limitations the exciting, pleasurable adventures she has been craving.
Nate Radcliff never had trouble forgetting a woman once he left her bed until he spent the night having sex with a woman who insisted on keeping her name a secret and her face hidden in the dark. A few weeks later, a chance encounter has him coming face to face with the woman he has been obsessing about, and with the fact she is blind. Immediately struck with admiration for the lengths Eve is willing to go to to brighten her dark world, he becomes determined to give her the adventures she craves.
For weeks Eve basks in the decadent pleasures and adventures both Nate and his friends give her, making sure she keeps her heart guarded from hoping for more, even when Nate insists their sex-only affair has grown into something more for him. But Nate wasn’t one to give up, especially when he wanted someone as much as he wanted Eve. Just when his persistence starts to pay off and Eve becomes open to a future with him, her best friend, Holly, returns to town, her jealousy and possessiveness threatening to drive them apart. Eve refuses to believe anything bad about Holly, the only person who has stayed faithfully by her side through thick and thin, which drives a wedge between her and Nate. In the end, Eve’s refusal to see her friend’s true motives comes close to not only costing her the man she loves, but to costing her life.
A compelling excerpt:
Nate took a reluctant step back. He had no idea why he couldn’t let it go, let her go, all he knew was he has never been intrigued by or drawn to a woman with such a strong pull before. Discovering her blindness answered a few questions, but raised several more, like how often did Camille set her up and how had she found the courage to attempt rock climbing blind? Never one to run from a challenge, he persisted by changing the topic.
“Why rock climbing? I’d think you’d have enough challenges to cope with without adding to them.”
Eve’s first reaction was to snap back again that it was none of his business, but she wasn’t used to people, especially men, being so open and inquisitive with her. Most people tiptoed around her, coached their remarks and avoided any mention of her blindness. Nate’s blunt curiosity bordered on rudeness, but she enjoyed the refreshing novelty of it even though she had no intention of encouraging him.
“I enjoy engaging my mind and my body with new challenges,” she replied, leaving it at that. “Now, I really must go. Carl?”
“Right here pumpkin. Mr. Radcliff,” Carl said, holding out his hand. “It was nice to meet you.”
“Same here,” Nate murmured as he watched them get in the car. He hoped being able to put a face and a name to his mystery woman ended this ridiculous infatuation he has developed.

BJ Wane’s bio, in her own words:
I live in the Midwest with my husband and our two dogs, a Poodle/Pyrenees mix and an Irish Water Spaniel. I love dogs, enjoy spending time with my daughter, babysitting her two dogs, reading and working puzzles. We have traveled extensively throughout the states, Canada and just once overseas, but I much prefer being homebody. I worked for a while writing articles for a local magazine but soon found my interest in writing for myself peaking. My first book was strictly spanking erotica, but I have slowly evolved to writing more towards erotic romance with an emphasis on spanking. I wrote that first book mostly for fun, never dreaming it would be published, and after it was accepted I didn’t have any intentions of writing any more in this genre. That was seventeen books ago and I’m still managing to find them interesting and fun to write.
I love hearing from readers and can be reached by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
