Risky Business by by Dena Garson: Tens List with Excerpt


What are 10 items on your bucket list?

My bucket list is filled with places I want to visit. I figured you’d get tired of seeing location after location but I couldn’t omit my number one item.

  1. Visit the UK. I am dying to see Stonehenge, eat in an Irish tavern and stand on a cliff in the highlands of Scotland.
  2. Go to a Superbowl. It would be awesome if the Dallas Cowboys played in it, but I’d go no matter who was playing.
  3. Attend an Olympics - either a summer or winter. It would be even more awesome to attend one in Greece though.
  4. See the Northern Lights.
  5. I’d love to see the New Year’s Eve fireworks over the Sydney Harbor.
  6. Go on an archeological dig.
  7. Attend a Kentucky Derby.
  8. Fly somewhere on a private jet.
  9. Sleep in a castle (preferably one that’s been converted to a B&B or hotel).
  10. Ride in a blackhawk helicopter.


Risky Business
by Dena Garson


Two coworkers are brought together when an embarrassing bet is brought to light at the annual office party. Mia worries her trust in Jake, the company playboy, may place her heart and reputation at risk.


“Were you planning to stay until the bitter end tonight?” Mia asked.

“Not really. What about you?”

“No. I’m not much of a night owl.”

Jake smiled. “You always did strike me as more of a morning person. While most people are still trying to get their coffee to kick in, you’ve sent out a dozen emails and left messages for half the people you need things from, haven’t you?”

She smiled back, pleased that he’d noticed. “Yeah, well, I do my best thinking first thing in the morning. I can’t help it if you slackers can’t keep up.”

“Oh, I didn’t say I couldn’t keep up. I’m usually rolling in from the track after running three miles a couple times each week.” He leaned closer and dropped his voice into that sexy tone she loved so much. “I’m a morning person too. I just tend to be more physical than mental in the early morning hours.”

“Oh.” A ripple of warmth flowed through her body as images of how many different ways he could be physical in the morning ran through her head. Wouldn’t that be a lovely start to the day?

Jake chuckled. “You want to get out of here?”

She shook off her rated-X thoughts. “Sorta. Running around the office party half-dressed is not how I’d imagined the evening would go.” She grimaced. “But since I came with Robin and Mandy, I won’t be able to go until they’re ready.”

“If it makes you feel any better, the casual observer can’t tell you’re not wearing anything under your dress.” He slipped one hand around her waist and pulled her against him, making his erection noticeable. He whispered into Mia’s ear, “I, however, have been extremely distracted for the last couple of hours.”
