Happy Friday everyone! Please help me welcome author Virginia Nelson here to Bookin' It today for a fun guest post to celebrate her latest release, Hypnotist!
Welcome, Ms. Nelson!
Welcome, Ms. Nelson!
Thanks for having me on the blog!
Have you ever dreamed of stepping outside your comfort zone and doing something completely inappropriate? Sometimes, it’s fun to do all the wrong things at all the right times. In Hypnotist, my recent release with Decadent Publishing, Carnie learns just how fun it can be. Already an impulsive woman, she goes to Mike in hopes of quitting smoking. She doesn’t believe in hypnotism—she’s too strong of a person to even be hypnotized—but she got a free gift certificate so there’s nothing to gain and everything to win.
Mike knows that Carnie writes for a living. Since most creative processes—be it artistic, writing or other tasks of that nature—the part of the brain engaged when inventing is the same part a hypnotist tries to trigger when taking someone to induction, or the first stage of hypnotism. A daydream state, he figures getting Carnie there isn’t going to be hard.
It’s not. She slips right under and he advises an impulsive woman to dare to take what she wants.
Luckily for Mike, what she wants most when our story takes place, is him.
Hypnotist was a blast to research and write. Hopefully you’ll find it as fun as I did.

Enjoy an Excerpt:
As her eyelids fluttered open, a refreshed sense of peace and energy washed over her, as if she hadn’t stayed up past three a.m. then got back up at six that morning to meet a deadline.
No, not just refreshed and energized.
Flicking a glance at the man next to her, so calm and cool, she knew what she wanted.
I want him to burn like I do.
Never having experienced that kind of immediate need for someone before, she was at a loss. She normally followed her impulses but….
He smiled at her and it was weighted with exhaustion. He came across like a nice guy. A really nice guy.
She wanted to see him be a naughty guy.
Practicing powers of seduction she didn’t even know she had, she adjusted herself on the couch, intentionally allowing her skirt to ride up.
“Look, I am sorry that the hypnotism didn’t work on me. I mean, you gave it a shot.” She tossed her hair back, wondering for a moment how it came down.
His lips curled up slowly. “Thanks for that.”
“Mmm. I could reward you for giving it a shot, anyway.”
His brows dropped. “Huh?”
One of her hands dropped to his thigh, resting on the couch next to her, and she slowly caressed the tight denim. “I mean, you tried. The least I could do is give you a kiss….”
About the Author:
Virginia Nelson spends her days chasing three very active kids around. When she is not doing this, or plotting taking over the world, she likes to write, play in the mud, drive far too fast and scream at inanimate objects. She can often be found listening to music that is far too loud and typing her next fantastic tale of blood, sex and random acts of ineptitude. Romance, in Ms. Nelson's opinion, is not about riding off into the sunset on the back of a horse with the knight in shining armor- it is about riding the dragon. If the knight can keep up… well, that is love.
