The opening scene of Taming the Tycoon involves Addie, the heroine, performing a citizen’s arrest on Nathaniel , the hero, using a pair of pink fluffy handcuffs.
“He raised a haughty eyebrow at her. “Pink fluffy handcuffs? Seriously?”
Addie could hear the derision lacing his voice despite the noise around them. She stood her ground. “Worried pink trim will ruin your image?”
“Not at all.” He shook his head. “Are they yours?”
The suggestive note in his voice slipped down her spine like a bead of warm water. She shrugged, trying to be nonchalant and pretend she wasn’t locked into a set of sex-shop handcuffs with the devil personified.
I must start off this blog with a point of clarification. I often get asked how much of my life is in my books and since Taming hit the virtual shelves I see my friends looking at me sideways with a faint enquiring look on their faces – does she or doesn’t she?
So let’s get it out in the open.
I don’t own a pair of pink fluffy handcuffs. Hell, I’ve never even seen a pair of pink fluffy handcuffs in real life. I’ve been in a sex-shop precisely twice and I was much too busy giggling like a school girl at the giant phalluses to check out their bondage items. I know it’s the height of fashion in this post 50 Shades world to be into a little BDSM but sadly, despite my rep for hawt raunchy sex scenes, I am boringly middle-class.
And so is Addie. Despite the alternate lifestyle and her revolutionary bravado she’s definitely quite straight and more than a littler flustered when she first claps eyes on the enigmatic Nathaniel.
And what a way to meet! I had a lot of fun writing that scene J Taking uptight Nate and literally binding him to hippy chick Addie was a fun and cute way for them to get together. I love these types of “meet cutes”, don’t you? Somehow they seem so much more romantic, more pre-destined, than a blind date or being introduced through mutual friends.
