Wanted: Wife by Lacey Wolfe
Thank you so much for having me on your blog today!
The way people find dates has changed quite a bit. A few years ago, you had to actually meet a person in order to date them. But since the internet has come about, the way people meet have changed as well. Now a days, you can contact an old flame on Facebook or join a dating website. A week into an online relationship, you might be feeling those lusty feelings for the other one. Now with keeping that in mind, how much precaution would you take before meeting a stranger?
In Wanted: Wife, while Darcy is looking for a job, she comes across an ad:
$1000 weekly, all expenses paid.
And Darcy responds to it. When she answers the ad, she thinks it’s a complete stranger and through a few emails, agrees to meet Steven. But before the date, the only precaution that she took was telling her best friend she had a date and in the event she wasn’t home by a certain time, to get help.
Personally, I would’ve taken a whole lot more precaution. But this is meant to be a fun, light story. And before Darcy decided to go, I revealed just who Steven was.
Her crush from high school. Thank goodness they aren’t complete strangers. Instead, they are two people who had the hots for one another in school, but because of their status in school they never dated. And this makes for a fun, roller coaster type of romance as they attempt to keep things platonic when they are dying to live out their high school fantasies.
So tell me, if you were going to meet a stranger, what precaution would you take? Me, I’d call someone the way Darcy did, but I’d also bring along a thing of mace and a pocket knife!
Wanted: Wife by Lacey Wolfe
Help Wanted: A Wife
Darcy White can't believe she's answering a help wanted ad from someone looking to hire a wife, but she's hit rock bottom and is on the verge of being evicted from her apartment. When she learns that the guy she had a crush on in high school is the one looking to hire, she'd be crazy not to live out her fantasy.
Steven McDonald needs a wife, or at least a fiancée, before his grandfather retires or else he won't inherit the family business. He knows not just any woman will do, and in a desperate attempt to find a solution, he places a help wanted ad in the local paper. The day Darcy White answers it, his dreams begin to come true.
As Darcy and Steven pretend they're engaged, they make a promise to keep things platonic. But the more time they spend together, the harder it is to keep their hands off one another. With his grandfather's retirement approaching, and the possible end to their fake engagement, can Steven and Darcy admit their feelings to not only themselves but each other?

"I'm making coffee, want any?" Darcy called from the kitchen.
As Steven entered the kitchen he said, "I'd love a cup."
Steven leaned against the counter. Darcy poured water into the coffee maker and then scooped the coffee in. After she pressed the brew button, she turned and stared back at him.
"That wasn't so bad," he said.
She nodded. "Yeah, it was okay."
Steven laughed. "Your parents were kind." He reached his hand out toward her.
Darcy walked to him, taking his hand.
"Your dad gave us his blessing."
"I had no doubt he would. Your family is well known."
Steven wasn't sure what had come over him, maybe it was the scotch he'd shared with her dad, but he couldn't resist the beautiful woman in front of him. He tugged her to him, and her body molded against his perfectly. With his free hand, he pushed her hair behind her ear and then pressed his lips to hers. He expected resistance from her, but she opened up right away, wanting the kiss as much as he did.
Sliding his hand around her neck, he tilted her head so he could deepen the kiss. Her fingers danced around his waist and the little sensation went straight to his groin. Releasing her hand, he gripped her waist and pulled her into him. He was hard and it pressed into her and she didn't seem to mind. Damn this woman! She should be pushing away from him, reminding him they were to stay friends, but instead he kept hoping her hand would find its way lower.
Could they do this once and then pretend it never happened? His erection was telling him yes, but his brain was telling him no. He started to pull away from the kiss, but Darcy wouldn't let him.
God, he was turned on and wanted to touch her, taste her, explore her. He needed her!
"Stop, Darcy." He pushed her off him.
She stepped back, a shocked look on her face.
"I can't control myself. I want to take you to bed so bad."
"I want that too." She moved closer to him again and wrapped her arm around his neck and let her other hand dangle at his waistband. "Can't we have a little fun?"
Do it or not? Yes or no? His core ached and taunted him. Taking a deep breath, he decided to listen to the head below.
He lifted Darcy up and sat her on the counter. His lips were everywhere. Her neck, collarbone. His hands were greedy as they worked the buttons on her blouse. "Stop me now, Darcy."
She gazed into his eyes and then cupped his erection through his pants. "No."
"No turning back?"
"No turning back."

I've been married for a 100 years, but if I were going on an internet date, I'd tell everyone, carry a cell phone, mace and maybe a gun! LOL I DO write suspense, you know!

Internet dating is like grocery shopping where all the products are in paper bags with descriptions on the outside of the bag. You aren't really sure what you're getting until you open it. I do have mace and a knife in my purse. It's always funny when I forget about it and go somewhere that I'm not supposed to have them. :) Thank you for visiting!

It's not like me to go purposely to meet a stranger, but I'd probably take some kind of protection and let all my friends know where I was going and why.

I do not know how Lacey handles six cats. I barely manage one cat & one dog.

:) 6 cats is WAY to many. I don't know how we got ourselves in this predicament!

When I was growing up, we lived on two acres. It was wonderful. We had 9 cats. They all lived outside though which made a big difference. Of course, we also had a dog, a rabbit, and seven chickens. My childhood seemed like Mayberry at the time!
