Today, Kristine Cayne is here for her Everything Bared Blog Tour. Welcome Kristine!
Julianne, thank you for having me on For Whom The Book Tolls today. I’m thrilled to let you know that CNN has interviewed Dani Harris, the heroine of Everything Bared (Six-Alarm Sexy, Book Two). I hope you and your readers will enjoy this peek into Dani’s life.
This is Allison Carter with CNN, reporting from Crowley, Texas, where a series of tornadoes have devastated the area. Whole towns have been razed, and the death toll stands at 60 so far, with dozens of people missing. I’m here with Danielle Harris, a canine search-and-rescue handler from Seattle and her dog, Coco.
AC: Ms. Harris, a few weeks ago, you and Coco helped rescue a mother and daughter from a partial building collapse in the recent earthquake in Seattle. That rescue was particularly poignant for you, because it involved family members of your firefighting colleagues. How does that experience compare to what you’re facing here?
DH: While each mission has its challenges and each life we save is sacred, rescuing people you know adds another layer to the intensity of the situation. The night of the earthquake we almost lost our lieutenant as well. It was only due to his incredible strength and bravery that we were able to get everyone out alive. That being said, working here is emotionally draining. There’s been so much loss. But when we find a survivor like we did this morning, it’s all worth it.
AC: Tell us a little bit about how you work with Coco.
DH: Coco and I have been together since she was eight weeks old. We work as a team. Coco has mastered both air and trail tracking, which makes her adaptable to a variety of scenarios. We’ve both gone through extensive training and certification, and I’m proud to say that even though Coco is only three years old, we’ve already achieved basic certification from the National USAR Response System. I couldn’t do what I do without her.
AC: How many people have you rescued so far here?
DH: All the teams are working together, and we don’t count our rescues, but I’d say I’m aware of around twenty.
AC: How long will you be here?
DH: I’m told it will be another couple of days. At that point, the operation will switch from search and rescue to recovery. Coco and I are not trained for that.
AC: I’ve heard that you and Coco are one of the top canine SAR teams in the nation. How often do you get called away from Seattle?
DH: At the Washington state level, we get called away once or twice a month. We also help out in nearby states when we can. At the national level, we get called out when FEMA determines that canine search teams are needed, although they typically start with available teams close to the area and then branch out from there.
AC: Speaking of Seattle, who’s waiting for you back home? Maybe one of your hunky firefighting colleagues?
DH: You know that expression: don’t get your nookie where you get your cookies? I live by it religiously.
AC: *laughs* Surely there’s someone.
DH: *looks away* Well, he’s not a firefighter. Far from it.
AC: I’m picturing a suit and tie. Am I getting warm?
DH: *fans self* A bit more than warm. *smiles* He’s not a firefighter, but he can really fill out a suit. That’s all I’m saying!
AC: *grins* Okay, I get it. I’m done grilling you. Thank you, Ms. Harris, for your courage, bravery, and selfless dedication. The people of Texas owe you their gratitude.DH: I’m honored to serve however I can.
Danielle (Dani) Harris
Two polar opposites—she’s kinky, he’s uptight—discover they share a taboo desire that may destroy both their futures.
Firefighter Dani Harris has always wanted a family, but doesn’t think it’s possible because of her demanding, high-stakes career. Her sex life is as high-adrenaline as her job, and that’s just one more thing that makes her unsuitable to be a wife and mother. Her secret kink—exhibitionism—has gotten in the way of more than one relationship. Will she ever find a man who not only shares her wild fantasies, but loves her for them?
Burdened with ensuring the success of the struggling family business, William Caldwell IV needs a wife suited for a CEO—one with money and connections, who can manage his busy social life and raise their 2.5 children. He’s got everything all mapped out, but when he meets Dani, a woman who’s every kind of wrong, she taps into desires he’s only half-recognized and long-suppressed. Suddenly his carefully crafted five-year plan feels as confining as a straightjacket.
As Dani and Will’s sexual experimentation escalates, they test the limits of polite society by baring all and risking exposure—an exposure that could cost them their reputations and careers.
When firefighter Dani Harris meets William Caldwell IV, sparks fly even though they’re polar opposites. She’s fiery, sexually adventurous, and takes no prisoners; he’s a tiger in the boardroom, but his tie is just a little too tight outside of it. Dani’s wild ways and exhibitionist side shake up William’s buttoned-up world and ignite his secret fantasies—but threaten to derail his five-year plan for becoming CEO. Can she loosen him up so they can find a middle ground? Or will his ideas about who he needs to be torpedo their sizzling attraction?
Peep Show Excerpt (18+)
A spotlight snapped on, bathing her in a harsh white light. Perched on a low wooden chair, she took in the small round platform beneath it, and the dozen shuttered openings surrounding her. Each was no more than a couple square feet in size and close enough for her to touch if she stretched out her arm. A pulsing beat filled the space and her body.
A man’s low, smooth voice broke in. “Begin.”
Begin what? Where was she? That’s when she noticed her clothes. Or rather her lack of them. A black corset laced up her abdomen and tied between her breasts, and sheer boy shorts barely hid her important bits. Garters tied to the corset held up silky thigh-highs. All things considered, it was a pretty sexy get-up, though far more modest than what she usually wore when she went to her favorite fetish parties. Is that where she was now? At a sex club?
When the platform began to rotate, she shifted and her foot hit something on the floor. Beside the chair was a basket full of toys. Sex toys.
One of the shuttered windows slowly slid open. In the near darkness, she could make out the broad-shouldered shape of a man.
Not toys. Props.
This was a peepshow. And she was the star attraction.
Her nails dug into her thighs as she tried to figure out if she was awake or asleep. Was she dreaming? If so, her subconscious was a right bitch to play with her fantasies like this.
The music cut out again. “Is there a problem, princess?”
That voice. It sounded so familiar, but not. She swallowed and shook her head. Since she was here, she might as well enjoy herself.
The platform had gone a full circle and she was once again facing the open square. With her eyes on the shape within, she raised one leg, pointing her toes in the ridiculously high heels, before sweeping her leg to the side and giving the man—customer?—an unobstructed view of her lace-covered pussy. The stranger’s eyes on her sent heat between her legs, and the delicious sensations had her gritting her teeth to hold back her moans.
The shutter of a window behind her slid up. She brought her foot to the floor and leaned back to smile at the newcomer. Make that newcomers. Based on the outlines she could see, there were at least two people in that booth. Hopefully, they’d enjoyed the flash of cleavage she’d given them.
The man’s voice filled the small room yet again. “Start stripping. We want to see more of you.” This time the smoothness of his tone was gone, replaced with something rougher. Lust.
Her belly clenched with excitement and arousal. She looked around, then up. Where was he? He had to be watching her, but from where? A booth? If he was, he’d better grab his hat—or better yet, his cock—because she planned on giving him the show of a lifetime.
