Enticing the Boss by Lily Bly πŸ’• Fun Facts, Book Tour & Gift Card Giveaway πŸ’• (Contemporary Erotic Romance)



Jean Price has loved her boss for the last six years. Unfortunately, he's been engaged to her treacherous stepsister. When the wedding is called off and a project puts Jean in close proximity with the sexy CEO, she jumps at the opportunity to show him how she truly feels. It's time to start enticing the boss.

David Shep is finally seeing his father's protΓ©gΓ© for the stunning woman she truly is—in the office and in his bed. But when her support is conspicuously absent when he needs her most, he can't help but wonder if he can trust her with his heart.




… Enticing the Boss takes place in the fictional city Elmburn, New Hampshire. Jean and David were born and raised there. It’s located twenty miles northeast of Concord and has four distinct areas: Northridge (historic buildings revitalized to businesses), Westside (industrial warehouses and shipping), the Heights (historic homes), and the Valley (new suburban homes).

… The novella is the first book in the Passion’s Price series. Each book will explore a Price family member’s romantic relationship.

… Jean’s brother George is the hero of the next book which takes place across the country in Colorado over the same week as Enticing the Boss.

… Jim’s Diner, where Jean and David go for breakfast, is haunted. Jean and David were, ahem, a bit too preoccupied to notice, but readers will meet the ghost in future books.

… Frederick Donelson, the entrepreneurial billionaire/reality TV star with whom Shep and Son hope to land a contract in Enticing the Boss, started off making his fortune with an international line of feminine hygiene products.

… Enticing the Boss was initially pitched to publishers with a horrible title. Honestly, it was just awful. You might say a rose by any other name, but no. Definitely no.

… A clown by any other name is still creepy. Beth isn’t the only one afraid of them. The author’s fear stems from an unfortunate rodeo clown encounter.

… Elvis impersonators are good people. Seriously, they would give you the capes off their backs, sequins and all.

… Working at a funeral home for four years, the author dealt with her share of casket sprays. Unlike Jean, she is not allergic to any flowers.

… The author creates playlists for each of her works-in-progress and listens to them while she writes. She’s added the playlist used for inspiration while writing Enticing the Boss to Spotify to share with you: https://open.spotify.com/user/dca4r1dtd1g48k9f8dwskt6du/playlist/5GrN1AentAls1ypbJVr1yi?si=g4ey1OSJQAqpRP4GRziYPQ


“David?” His gaze bolted up toward me, startled. Thank goodness he’d missed my personal tirade in the hall. He was slow to reply, as if recognizing me through a fog. “Jean.”

He breathed the word, and I tried hard not to get excited over the relief he seemed to pack into the single syllable. I took a few more steps into his office. It was in as much disarray as David. File drawers yawned open here and there with folders skewed at angles. White boards were covered with almost unintelligible notes.

“I didn’t expect to see you here this late.” I adjusted the strap of my purse across my shoulder and smoothed the lapel of my coat. He attempted to smile, but his expression fell far short of his usual jaunty grin. Instead, he let a frown fall and shrugged his shoulders, smoothing wrinkles on his normally pristine white shirt across the breadth of his chest.

He sighed, scrubbing a hand over his face. “Beth dumped me.”

“What?” I couldn’t believe it. David and Beth had one of those annoying fairytale love stories behind them that I couldn’t stand, but it wasn’t just because I was in love with the prince and, at times, had considered driving a stake through Beth’s heart. David and Beth seemed well-staged for happy ever after. No one except me—prince included—seemed to notice that the woman everyone thought was Cinderella had, in fact, always been an ugly stepsister.

    




Lily Bly lives in North Dakota and looks forward to winter. She prefers Marvel over DC, acoustic over electric, and tea over coffee. She thinks that love—whether sweet, sappy, or tough—is the stuff of life and likes her reading and writing to be chock-full of it. Before finally taking the plunge to write full time, she worked in various industries including funeral service, law enforcement, veterinary service, and retail health food. She writes heroines who can hold their own and heroes dying to hold them.
