Hollywood Temptation by Scarlet Wilson (Guest Post/Giveaway)

 


HERO INSPIRATION

I find it difficult to write without some hero inspiration.  No, I find it impossible to write without hero inspiration.  My first step of writing is always to search the internet to find my next hero.  For this story, I didn’t have to look too far.


Hollywood Temptation is the second book in a series set in a plastic surgery clinic in Hollywood.  I needed someone seriously sexy, drop-dead handsome, with an awesome body.  It wasn’t hard to find.
Meet the gorgeousness that is Julian McMahon aka Dr Christian Troy in Nip Tuck and Cole Turner in Charmed.  How could anyone resist that smile!

Once I had my picture of Julian McMahon pinned to the wall the words for the scenes seemed to flow especially easy.  There’s even a cheeky role play scene where he and the heroine dress up as Han Solo and Princess Leia!

Who would your hero inspiration be?



Hollywood Temptation

Amazon | B&N | Kobo | Entangled Website | Goodreads
Hollywood surgeon Colt Travers needs a new receptionist ASAP.  When the adorable—and completely broke—Selena Harris comes in needing stitches, he takes a risk and hires her on the spot. She can pay off her bill, and he won’t have to answer the phone anymore. They're opposites in every way, and she's exactly what he doesn’t want in a woman—impulsive, carefree, and amusing. He's trying to resist her, but the longer she's around, the further he sinks into temptation.
Selena never meant to get herself in such deep financial straits. LA has way too much temptation, from high-end shopping to gorgeous men, and now her life is in chaos. But Colt is different—responsible and noble—and although their chemistry is off the charts, he’s keeping her at arm’s length. She's determined to win his trust--and his heart--but will the secrets she's desperately trying to hide ruin their chance for a big Hollywood happy ending?


Except:

Excerpt:  A car skidded to a halt outside. He stood up and walked over to the window. It wasn’t the type of car that normally appeared in their parking lot. Not the usual parking spot, either. It was usually cars-for-the-stars around here. But this was a run-of-the-mill car. He watched as a blonde bombshell emerged from the car, pressing something to her head. There was a parking

lot directly to her left. It was clearly marked. She had practically blocked the driveway parked there. Another woman who thought the rules were made for everyone else.
She looked upward and he caught his breath. Even in her disheveled state he could see she was a knockout. Blond hair around her shoulders, lovely bone structure—the one thing a plastic surgeon always noted—lightly tanned skin, curves in all the right places, and fuchsia-pink lips. His favorite color on a woman.
He watched as she struggled to straighten her blouse and skirt with one hand, a signature handbag weighing her down as she continued to press something to her head. She stumbled. He winced. The last thing they needed was someone to fall on their way into the clinic and sue them. Bad publicity and lawsuits were not what they needed right now.
Something was caught around her ankle. He could see the bright scrap catching on the stiletto heel of her shoe. She stopped and dumped her bag on the ground then bent down to retrieve the wayward piece of material. Her head shot back up quickly, glancing at all the windows in the clinic. Her face was scarlet.
It wasn’t. It couldn’t be.
Yes, it was.
Colt couldn’t stop the hearty laugh he let out as she bent down and stuffed the pink thong into her bag.
