Let me say thank you and giant hugs to Lori for having me on her blog. Lori is one of my support people. When writing, the support team keeps you from tossing every word you write into the recycle bin.
Now, if What You Need became a movie I can see the story expanding a bit or it’d be one of those artistic, erotic shorts. I could get a little creative with color tones for something like that.
The biggest question is who would play Royce and Veronica?
For Royce, I need a man who looks good in a tie, and ruffled hair. My top pick would be James McAvoy. He’s got a hot body. Have you seen him in Wanted? *takes a drink of water* I don’t need to elaborate then. I believe McAvoy has the acting chops to pull of Royce’s vulnerability and submissive nature.
Veronica needs someone who’s got a strong back bone and looks good in dark brunette. My pick would have to be Lena Hadley. Most people are familiar with her work playing Cersei Lannister on HBO’s Game of Thrones series. For playing a conniving royal Lena would probably find the role of Veronica a little less stressful.
At the end of the day, both Lena and James played a role in creating the visual look of Veronica and Royce. I couldn’t have written the story without them. I should probably send them thank you notes.
As a special treat 2 lucky winners will win a $25 Gift Card to PureRomance.com and a free copy of my book. Entries will be accepted until Wednesday at midnight.

1Night Stand Series
What You Need
by Landra Graf
A sexual submissive, Royce wants a woman who’ll make his fantasies come true. The last thing he expects on his 1Night Stand is to be paired with Victoria, his ex-best friend. Haunted by their past, he refuses to deny his newfound attraction or his need for answers. This time, he doesn’t plan to let her go.
Victoria has loved Royce forever, but the sting of his rejection is not so easily forgotten. No longer the naïve girl he knew, she’s matured into a sexual dominant. This domme demands a chance to restart their relationship—on her terms. Knowing that one night will never be enough, she plans a seduction that will last forever.

Enjoy the following excerpt for What You Need:
“Hi.” About the only word he managed before a pair of luscious, plump red lips descended on his. One sharp heel spike scratched the skin above his ankle. His trousers were tight and rough on his thighs igniting a pleasurable pain in his pulsing erection. She molded her body to his, and her nibbling bites on his mouth sent his brain reeling. The press of her weight sparked his nerves. Lord, he hadn’t experienced anything like that.
Skin hot and flushed, he moved to embrace her and deepen the kiss. Instead, she grabbed his wrists and anchored them above his head; a simple gesture of dominance and one he’d never thought of as arousing until then. Her ministrations slowed to a crawl, opting for tracing the seams of his lips and he thrusting his own eager tongue forward, desperate for another taste of spice and something familiar…a flavor of summer and sweet lemonade.
She pressed harder, her breasts crushed to his chest, his wrists still restrained, her nails biting into the flesh. Royce’s desire ratcheted up further and as he thought he might succumb to the most embarrassing release ever, she pulled away.
Panting, he tugged at his shirt collar. His date faced the window, out of the fan of illumination from low-lit lamps within the room. Curvy with toned arms and legs, her bare back on display, she stood straight and confident, her profile nothing less than stunning.
He took a deep breath and exhaled hard. What a way to start the night. Chemistry wouldn’t be an issue. But he also wanted a little conversation.
“That’s some way to say hello.” Chuckling, he grabbed his discarded bag and moved farther into the room.
“Yes, it is. But I’ve wanted to do that for a long time.” Her voice sounded sultry and all-too-familiar.
