Hi. I’m Erzabet Bishop and I write contemporary erotic romance. The hotter the better. In my newest release, Temptation Resorts: Marnie’s Tale, I explore some pretty awesome vacation options. In the series, the client takes a questionnaire and it helps to determine hard and soft limits, or what they will or won’t do in a possible situation. From this, the very capable Emerson Hardwick pairs up the client with a concierge to manage their visit and help adjust things if needed. If I were one of the guests staring intently at Jess’s copy of the flyer for Temptation Resorts, I just know you wouldn’t be able to rip it from my hands.
But what would be the top ten things I would want to do on a vacation to a resort like Temptation Resorts? What if it was only for one day like with Marnie and her friend Jess (who’s adventure will be out in March)? I guess I wouldn’t know until I got the results from my questionnaire but here are some things I would love to try…
1. Spanking lessons in a classroom. With a paddle.
2. Dungeon exploration with a very capable Domme.
3. A dining room adventure with a vibe and a man with a firm hand. Oh yes. Pass the chocolate mousse please.
4. Walking on the beach in the moonlight and letting the waves run up my ankles.
5. Lazing around on the patio with an e-reader full of smut.
6. Scones. Lots of scones and coffee with real half and half. Because I want to-damn the skinny jeans.
7. A massage. Use your imagination…
8. A really long and sexy shower with a friend…
9. Learn about submission from someone who could curl my toes.
10. A ticket for another stay because one day would never be enough.
I hope you will join me at the resort and leave a note at the desk letting me know which activities you would like to try during your stay…

Excerpt Two: Leave with Master Hardwick
The server arrived. "Mr. Hardwick. How nice to see you." He inclined his head toward Marnie.
"Have you look at the menu, ma'am?"
"Would you suggest something?" she asked Emerson.
He flipped open the menu. "Do you have the rare roast beef?"
Marnie’s stomach growled in response. "That sounds great."
"You heard the lady. I’ll have that as well." He scanned the menu once more. "And some twice-baked potatoes and asparagus."
"Would you care for some wine?"
"Yes." Emerson inclined his head. "Red or white?"
"White, please. And some water."
Marnie tilted her head. "So you never did answer my question about what you do here."
"Guest satisfaction is my primary concern."
"Guests choose different packages depending on their time and budget. Not everyone can afford a week in a sensual massage class or an impact play tutelage session. I use the questionnaire to tailor the needs of the guest to what we offer and make sure they’re happy with their experience."
Marnie frowned. "I thought Janice handled the questionnaire."
"No. I match guests with activities and hand them off to my staff to make the guests comfortable. It's imperative we match the right concierge with the right guest."
"So I have you to thank for that earlier." Marnie smirked.
"Guilty." Emerson laughed. "But see, I stepped in and rescued you, too, so your happiness is still my greatest concern."
"What if they’re not happy? The guests in general." Marnie asked. "I mean, you can’t make everyone happy, can you?"
"I certainly try." Emerson considered her for a moment. "I have a confession to make."
Marnie cocked her head. "What?"
"I remember your questionnaire." His eyes raked over her.
"Oh." Heat infused Marnie’s cheeks.
"We don’t get that many Marnies."
"For you, that’s probably a good thing." She played with her rolled-up napkin.
"Maybe. Consider this fate." Emerson reached into his jacket pocket for something and then passed a small black box to her under the table.
He opened his other hand to show her a remote control. "Are you game to play out one of your fantasies?"
Her stomach did flip-flops. She remembered what she’d written about her restaurant fantasy, and her mouth went dry. "Maybe?"
"Go to the bathroom and open the box. If you decide to play, come back and place the box on the seat between us. If you don’t, place it in your purse and I’ll slip the remote in with it? Deal?" His silky voice held a challenge.
Marnie scurried out of the booth toward the lounge. Emotions warred within her. She was attracted to Emerson, but did she dare? She wasn’t offended, but she was a little afraid of what she might do. In public. With a man she hardly knew. What if she couldn’t control her reactions?
She sucked in a breath and made her choice.
