Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00071]

Sex? Absolutely

Love? Not my thing.

I didn’t do love or butterflies, but I loved him.

I was screwed, and not in a good way.

Selah Elmore is a smart, independent woman who knows exactly who she is and what she wants. She loves her life being a professor and popular pirate erotica author. However, when she leaves the Pacific Northwest to spend six months studying sculpture in West Africa, she learns she doesn’t know a thing about love.

Cocky, suit-wearing Gerhard charms her during a stopover in Amsterdam, but dashing, adventurous Kai sweeps her off her feet in Ghana.

Sparks fly on three continents when perpetually single Selah discovers there’s more to love and life than she ever imagined.

5 Pennies

Daisy Prescott has done it againMissionary Position takes the reader on a whirlwind adventure over three continents and demonstrates that the idea of love can change when faced with the completely unexpected.

This story took me through an expanse of feelings and emotions ranging from amused to zenful. My heart peaked and valleyed as Selah trekked to new destinations and embarked on fresh adventures. Selah is a strong, smart and capable woman. She relies on no one define her happiness or feelings of self-worth. But when she meets a man who awakens feelings inside her she never knew existed, her internal axis is tilted. She is forced to ask herself questions she never thought she would consider let alone be in the realm of possibility.

The love story in the book is sublime. Selah and Gerhard (Kai) are well-developed characters both mentally and physically. They challenge each other to think outside themselves and to see the world from another vantage point while willing themselves to embrace a new point of view.

Daisy crafts both heated passion and deep emotional connection between Selah and Kai. You could feel the emotional conflicts within Selah as she experiences pangs of guilt and longing over her new found friend. The references to Selah’s writing books her friends affectionately call pirotica under her pen name added some very nice spice to the storyline. Selah’s references to Kai’s given name Gerhard sprinkled throughout the book allow for double entendre chuckles.

Worth mentioning is how descriptive Daisy is able to get about the locales she has her characters travel to. When Selah was seeking to get some skirts made in Africa, I felt as though I was in the open air market with her helping her choose fabrics. The story transported me to places I have never been, but left me feeling like I had truly seen the cities and landmarks described.

Daisy is one of my favorite authors as her characters are extremely relatable to me. It is refreshing to read stories that allow you to believe that no matter what age, love is a possibility. Thank you Daisy for keeping that hope alive.

Excerpt

 

“If I come inside tonight, I’m not returning to the hotel. I want you to know if we go inside, I’m staying.”

I smiled at him in the darkness with only the street lights for illumination.

“I’m sure.”

The unsnapping of his seat belt echoed around us.

“Eager much?” I teased.

He growled and opened his door. “Coming?” he glanced at me.

“God I hope so. And soon,” I mumbled softly under my breath.

“Come again?” He grinned.

My mind told me we needed to talk.

My heart told my mind to shut it.

My body ignored both of them and hummed with anticipation.

When we made it inside the house, he pinned me against the wall and crushed my mouth with his. In romance writing there was a trope about tongues battling for dominance. I never understood the appeal or the action until that kiss.

Massacred any resistance I still held.

I rubbed against him like a cat. Yearning for Shiva’s multiple arms, my hands touched everywhere they could reach. They tangled into his hair, ran over his shoulders, inside his coat, under his sweater, and over his lower back before coming to rest on his ass.

When we broke apart, panting for oxygen, he asked, “Am I forgiven?”

“Less talking tonight. Talk tomorrow,” I said between pecks across his scruffy jaw. I nipped the smooth spot under his ear and inhaled a big dose of his pheromones. Not that I needed them. “Upstairs.”

He guided me toward the stairs. With a single smooth swoop, he lifted me into his arms and carried me upstairs. Normally, I would have complained about weighing too much, or not wanting him to hurt his back, but the way he held me made me feel light, even dainty. And I wasn’t fool enough to argue.

When he set me on the bed, I fell into the soft down of the duvet. Staring up at him, I remembered our first night together at his hotel. We might have had sex seven hundred ways to Sunday between now and then, but now, this, felt like the first time all over again.

“You said no talking, but I’m not very good at following rules, so I’m ignoring your request for a second.” His dimple appeared. “I love you, Selah. Not a temporary kind of love either. I didn’t stop after our disastrous phone call, and I don’t have plans to stop. Ever.”

“I love you. Truly, madly, deeply,” I whispered, lost in the depths of his eyes.

He shook his head and chuckled. “You just quoted One Direction.”

“Pretty sure it was a movie title first.” I sighed and rolled my eyes. “You know One Direction song titles?”

Author Bio

 

Daisy Prescott bw

 

Before writing bestselling contemporary adult romances, I dreamed of being an author while doing a lot of other things. Antiques dealer, baker, blue ribbon pie-maker, fangirl, freelance writer, gardener, pet mom and wife are a few of the other titles I’ve acquired over the years.

Born and raised in San Diego, I currently lives in a real life Stars Hollow in the Boston suburbs with my husband, our dog Hubbell, and an imaginary house goat.

Missionary Position is a spin-off from my first novel, Geoducks Are for Lovers. Like my second novel, Ready to Fall, it can be read as a standalone contemporary romance/romantic comedy.
