Tell Me a Fantasy by Tamara Lush ❄️ Book Tour & Gift Card Giveaway ❄️ (Erotic Romance)



Samantha Citrouille’s anxiety won’t stop her from attending London Fashion Week and collecting a lifetime industry award. After all, when iconic designer Karl Lagerfield requests your presence at an exclusive party, you have to jump on a plane. Even if you’re deathly afraid of flying.

While white-knuckling it on the turbulent flight from Florida, Samantha's seated in business class next to a handsome stranger named Colin. His low, smooth voice helps calm her nerves. But her panic reaches its peak when the plane is forced to land in Iceland due to mechanical failure. Distraught, she's horrified to discover that all hotels are booked due to a summer solstice festival. As the world’s top designer of tropical resort clothing, Samantha _ known as Sam C. to her legions of fans _ is used to luxury at her Palm Beach estate, not sleeping on airport benches with only a pashmina wrap for a blanket.

Her impossibly sexy seat-mate Colin kindly offers to share his accommodations, because a business contact owns a sleek pied-à-terre in Reykjavik. Samantha, emotionally wrung out, agrees for what she thinks is one quick night.

A freak volcano eruption forces Samantha and Colin to stay in the Icelandic capitol for a long weekend, and the two have nothing better to do than share cocktails, bare their past sins in conversation, and indulge in each other under the midnight sun.

But things become complicated after their idyllic fantasy weekend together. Colin, a self-described modern-day rake, is sure he’s finally found the woman of his dreams. But Samantha, who has her own fears and ghosts of the past, isn’t so certain. She'd rather fly around the world, twice, than have her heart broken again.

**Tell Me a Fantasy is a stand-alone novella**





“I’m so sorry to ask you this, sir.” Blue-Eyes rested his hand on the man’s shoulder in a chummy and familiar way. “But my office bungled my reservation and those of my wife here.”
He gestured at me with an open palm.
His wife? Holding my champagne flute in mid-air, I reared back. The handsome stranger winked at me, an almost imperceptible gesture. I wasn’t sure what I surprised me more—that he was trying to save me from the vulgar guy or that we’d all been in the TSA line together and were now on the same flight to London.
I blinked a few times, hoping both would go away. I wanted to be left alone with my thoughts and my anxiety. The pilot needed my positive vibes. Irrational, I knew, but I wanted nothing to do with either man in front of me.
“My secretary somehow managed to get us seated apart. You know how these things happen.” Blue-Eyes again gestured in my direction. I gaped.
“Would you mind switching seats with me? Mine’s actually better—in the first row, the row that’s one seat instead of two. Lots of legroom, a swivel seat. Surely you understand. We’re newlyweds and all…” The corner of Blue-Eyes’ mouth lifted. I was uneasy with how he’d commanded this situation so fluidly.
“Oh, Jesus, of course. Of course. I wouldn’t want to get in the way of some mile-high action, if you know what I mean.”
“Thank you, sir.”
The man stood up and clapped Blue-Eyes on the shoulder, yelled something about congratulations, then wrested his briefcase from the overhead compartment. He lurched forward several rows.
I took another sip of champagne. We hadn’t even taken off and this flight was already a disaster.
Blue-Eyes took his phone out of the inner pocket of his pinstripe grey suit jacket and placed it on his seat. Then, with precision, he took off the jacket, folded it in half, and placed it in the overhead compartment. This man’s movements were fluid and careful.
He picked up his phone and sat, smoothing his deep red tie with a big hand. He grinned.
“Your wife.” I said this as a statement, not a question. “How clever. Why did you switch seats with him?” I gave him a side-eye.
“I know a damsel in distress when I see one.”
I rolled my eyes. Maybe sitting next to this guy would be even worse.
He chuckled, a rich, deep noise, and something inside me hummed despite the ridiculous situation. “You can thank me now.”
With a dainty sip, I looked away from his handsome face and finished my champagne. “I guess I should, although by the time we get to London, you’re probably going to curse me and wish you’d have left me with that terrible person.”
“Hardly.” He held out a hand that looked like it should belong to a prizefighter, not a businessman. “It’s a pleasure to meet you. I’m Colin.”
“Samantha.” I leaned in his direction and inhaled. He smelled like ice and mastery and a hint of chocolate. Dangerous, for a certain kind of woman.
I wasn’t that kind of woman. Not anymore.
