Guest Post From Nicole Flockton!! Plus Giveaway!

Bound by His Desire is released!! I'm so excited to share Nick and Pam's story with the world and I'm doing a giveaway. This is a really special day too because on 22nd October 2012 my very first book, Masquerade, was released. Now my 9th book is hitting the shelves. Amazing two years. This is the second book in the "Bound by" Series. The first book, of course, is Bound by Her Ring. I'm currently working on the third book, titled "Bound by Their Love". Madly editing it actually. But let me tell you a bit about Nick and Pam. Here's the blurb!
Nick Rhodes has been burned before, so when he hires a new assistant, he has one rule: no emotional attachments. On either side. Pamela Bishop is everything he needs in a professional colleague, and comes with an ironclad guarantee – she absolutely will not fall in love with him. Pamela Bishop has only one goal in her new job: getting on top of the mountain of debts incurred through her mother’s medical expenses. Jeopardising this chance by falling in love with her arrogant, if handsome, employer is the last thing she would ever do. But as the lure and romance of New York City surrounds them, and Pamela and Nick find themselves spending more and more time together, they can no longer ignore the attraction flaring between them. Nick has always lived by his own rules – can he learn to break them in time to grab this one chance at happiness? Here are the buy links for you to go grab your copy!

Excerpt 'This is incredible,’ she whispered as she grabbed hold of Nick’s arm. ‘Pinch me, please. Pinch me so I know I’m not dreaming this and that I’m actually standing here in the middle of Times Square.’ Nick laughed and gathered her close in his arms. ‘It’s real, trust me. You’re here.’ Pam couldn’t help it. She laughed too and pulled out of Nick’s embrace, wanting to explore more. She started to head further down the street so she could get closer to the big screens. She stopped when something registered with her. In front of her, standing tall, was a column of screens all lit up, displaying various adverts. On top was a spire with a large crystal ball on the top. It, too, was alight and she wanted to see it close up. ‘Is that the ball you see on TV at New Year’s Eve, you know the one that “drops” at midnight?’ ‘Yes, it is.’ Pam stood spellbound. Never in her life had she thought she would ever see something so iconic. ‘This is unbelievable,’ she whispered. ‘Let’s move a little closer,’ Nick suggested, and once again placed his arm around her waist. She was so glad she was sharing this experience with Nick and not Ethan. It wouldn’t have been the same. They walked through the crowd, and when they stopped she leaned back against Nick’s warm, hard chest and looked up at the glittering ball. She imagined during the daytime it would still look beautiful, but not as spectacular as it looked that night. She wished she had a camera so she could take a picture. ‘I wish I had my camera,’ she murmured as she looked around, imprinting the image onto her brain. ‘I’ll take one on my phone.’ Nick let his arms drop and reached into his pocket. ‘Pose and smile.’ Pam struck a pose and smiled big. Nick took a couple of photos before he pocketed the phone again. She stared one last time at the ball and walked up to Nick. She went up on her tiptoes and placed her lips against his for a soft kiss. ‘Thank you for bringing me here.’ She went to step away but Nick pulled her close. ‘My pleasure,’ he uttered as he claimed ownership of her lips again. She sighed into his embrace, wanting it so much. She wound her arms around his neck and sunk her fingers into his short hair, caressing the nape of his neck. Pam shivered as his hand gently stroked her bare back. Everything faded out of her consciousness. Her awareness turned inwards on the sensations of Nick’s touch. Her blood sang with exhilaration as his lips moved over hers, encouraging a response from her, which she gave freely. How did they always end up in each other’s arms? She’d only known him a handful of days, but sometimes she felt as if she’d known him a lot longer. This felt so right, sharing a kiss with the most handsome man she’d ever met in the middle of Times Square. A dream come true. Nick pulled his mouth away from hers and kissed along her jawline until he reached her ear, where he gently blew into it. Her whole body shuddered in reaction to his breath. She wasn’t sure what she should do next.   Giveaway a Rafflecopter giveaway
