Greetings! I’m Alexis Alvarez, and thanks for visiting my blog! Today I’m participating in a brand new blog hop called Scintillating Sunday. A bunch of romance authors link together to share snippets from a recent work…as long as it’s scintillating, and as long as it’s 8: 8 words, 8 sentences, or 8 paragraphs. I’m going with 8 paragraphs because I’m chatty that way. Here’s an excerpt from my new release, Dream Girl, which is a steamy, sexy romance novel with laugh-out-loud humor. It also just a sprinkle of kink and a few consensual, sexy spankings.

I just mean that I don’t actually expect to make it onto the show, and—you know, this is not really any of your business.” She could feel her face all hot and flushed as she looked at his lips, then back to his eyes, then at the floor.
Dominic mused in a low voice, “Seeing as how you’re a contestant for my show… wouldn’t that make it my business?”
“No,” she said haughtily. “Because I’m not planning to kiss you. You’re being a total arrogant rude… jerk. And I don’t kiss jerks.”
“I think you want to kiss me a hell of a lot more than you’re willing to admit.” His eyes locked onto hers and for a moment Chloe could see nothing but her desire reflecting from the dark depths of his pupils.
“Maybe we should do a test run,” he murmured, his smile wicked. “Just to see how bad you really are. I’d be happy to give you some pointers.” And for one crazy moment, as his face drifted closer, she almost thought—
