I was in a chat room, writing on my April 18 release, In The Hay. My characters just had sex for the first time. Heroine, Nicolette, is glowing. Hero Drew is asking to see her again. All is happy.
And then it’s time for them to clean up.
Let me set the scene for you. They walked to the other end of town. From there, they got on railroad tracks and walked them until they’re surrounded by fields. At that point, Nicolette tugs Studly Drew into the hay field for a little body-slapping.
Now that you’re up to speed, do you see my problem yet?
What in the world am I going to do with the used condom??? First instinct was for him to toss it aside in the grass. And then I had visions of reviews stating, “OMG, he ripped the condom off and threw it some old farmer’s hay field! What if that thing gets caught on his tractor wheel, slings the full bag in the man’s lap, and he keels over from a heart attack???”
Being mocked for such a careless thing filled my head.
I thought up scenarios. He could walk with it back to town and dispose of it. It would dangle from his fingertips and the used bag would bob next to his thigh. Err…sexy. Or maybe stuff it in his pocket?? Um. Gross.
Tossing it is really my only option here.
A friend suggested an old trash barrel by the tracks. Someone else said what about putting it inside litter along the tracks?
It was then brought up that I was in the heroine’s pov. It was decided when the heroine goes to look for her panties, the hero will take care of this disposal task. Where it ends up, who knows? Only Drew does.
What do you think Drew does with it? An eCopy of In The Hay, the third novella in the Uninhibited in Apple Trial, Arkansas novella series will go to one lucky commenter!
Thanks so much for having me Nikki!

She doesn’t want wild and raunchy, just a little spice…
Stephanie Faulkner listens to her neighbor’s nightly sexcapades through her bedroom wall. What used to make her blush now has her reaching for her vibrator. But she’s had enough self-fulfillment and now wants the real thing.
He wants commitment and long-term, not a quick roll…
The only woman Parker Madison ever wanted for long-term was Stephanie…but she’s off-limits. He’s tried to find a substitute but there just isn’t another woman like her. Now that she’s available, if he gives her time to get over her ex-husband…will he finally get his long-desired chance?
Short-term doesn’t lead to long term. Or does it…?
But when Stephanie digs up the courage to ask Parker for something a little exciting and spicy, he nervously rejects her. Still, she sets out to get what she wants—a little sexcapade of her very own. No commitment. It’s just sex, right?
Parker knows he could never be satisfied with having Stephanie temporarily. But as she continues to tempt him and he finds it harder to resist, he begins to think short-term might be better than nothing at all. Unless he can convince her into more.
If Shellie Chambers has to hear one more condescending comment from her mother about life or men, she might scream. So, she packs up and takes a trip to see her long-missed high school friend, Riley. He’ll know exactly what she needs to loosen up. But instead of the girl-chasing jock she remembers from their youth, Riley’s gone country, keeping up a farm of his own.
Riley Hamilton has settled down on a farm his uncle left to him. Not the life he ever envisioned, but after getting a girl pregnant in college and then watching helplessly as the baby was aborted, he learned the hard way it was time to settle down. Shellie’s reentry into his life reminds of his wild past and it’s a fight to ignore the tempting woman she has become.
