Say NO to pirates & ebook pirating!

Pirating means authors can't continue to write series/books that don't earn out or make a profit.

What Happens in Vegas… by Lauren Dane

Dahlia Baker had a reputation in her hometown. It was one of the things a woman with a body like hers had to contend with. As if large breasts and legs for miles made her a dumb bimbo. But it wasn’t like anyone cared that she had a 4.0 and a free ride to UNLV and so she grabbed opportunity with both hands and headed for the sunny heat of Las Vegas.

Still, she has bills to pay and if she wants to keep herself in books and a roof over her head, she has to get a job. And that’s where The Dollhouse came in where she worked as a burlesque dancer.

She’s got a plan for her future. But into her life strolls Nash, the brother of the man who owned the Dollhouse and a reputed player. Nash was literally the hottest man she’d ever clapped eyes on.

And he wants her.

Despite her reservations, they enter into a fiery affair and soon Dahlia’s heart is involved.

Nash knows Dahlia is skittish and over time, he begins to understand why. He may be a playboy, but he knows what he wants and he wants forever with Dahlia. It’s just going to take a very skillful combination of extremely hot sex and unconditional love to get her to see it too.

What inspired you to write this book?

This story came from a trip my husband and I took to Las Vegas. We went to a wonderful burlesque club and it stuck in my mind about how fun it would be to write about the women who danced there. I wanted to write about a woman who had all the bells and whistles on the outside but had a wicked brain to match and how it would affect her and the way she dealt with people. I’d sort of worked out a rough idea of a story by the time we got home and then my agent called and asked me if I’d be interested in working up a novella with a Vegas theme for an anthology she wanted to pitch. It was total luck but I’m so glad it happened!
