"I Write, I Quilt"
I guess you could call me two-dimensional.
You see, I have this swivel system in my office. Basically, I swivel from my computer to my sewing machine. When I get stuck on a scene in my manuscript (unfortunately, this happens more often than I’d like), I simply scoot my chair around, and I sew a few seams. Then, if I end up tearing out a few seams in frustration, I switch back to the computer to pound out a few hundred words.
And if all else fails, I take the Chihuahua for a walk or collapse on the bed in the guest room, which is next to my office. And yes, I made the quilt on the bed.
I almost forgot that I’m here today to encourage you to participate in my blog tour. I’m really no good at self-promotion, and I have to admit that I write for the sheer pleasure of it, so I’ve long abandoned any notion of monetary gain. That said, I think you’d find that my new book, His Fantasy Maid, will take you to a place where you can forget your troubles and believe in the transforming power of love.
Here’s the blurb…
Dr. Amy Maitland is a first-year resident physician, but she leads a double life. To meet the expenses of medical school, she’s also a fantasy maid. Attired in a bikini or French maid outfit, she provides light housekeeping services. While this may be an odd job for a doctor, it pays well and includes the flexible hours she requires. When she’s hired as the preamble to a lawyer’s bachelor party, she finds herself deeply attracted to the compelling Jake Sinclair, Esq. He's gorgeous and smart, with a self-deprecating sense of humor. But fraternizing is against the rules of the cleaning service. Besides, this guy is engaged, so there’s no future there for her. She pushes him from her thoughts until he winds up in the emergency room with cracked ribs, the victim of a car crash, and she’s the doctor on call.

My Book Review:
His Fantasy Maid is a sexy romantic novella that was a lot of fun to read. Amy Maitland is a first-year resident who moonlights with a fantasy maid service as a way to pay for her education. Jake Sinclair is a successful attorney who is engaged to be married in two weeks. Amy and Jake's path cross when she is contracted to provide a fantasy maid service in a bikini for Jake as a bachelor party gift by Sam, his best friend and soon to be brother-in-law. Instant attraction and a scorcher of a kiss is all they can share, if only they met under other circumstances ... Fate steps in and their paths cross again when Jake is involved in a car accident and he is surprised to find that Amy, his sexy fantasy maid is his ER doctor! As Jake and Amy's attraction grows, all hell breaks loose when Claudia, Jake's jealous fiancee becomes vindictive and tells the hospital administration about Amy's moonlighting as a fantasy maid, causing Jake to break their engagement. Can Jake and Amy's relationship develop beyond the realm of fantasy?
Author Susan Blexrud weaves a sassy fun tale set in Orlando and Winter Park, Florida, and written in an alternating first person narrative that follows Jake and Amy's romantic development filled with dramatic trials and tribulations. I really enjoyed reading the story in the alternating first person narrative, it gives the reader a chance to get into Amy and Jake's head as their attraction for each other leads them down a path of discovering that maybe there is something more drawing them together than just sexual attraction. As sparks fly and drama ensues, it was fun to watch Jake and Amy connect and see if they had what it takes to make their relationship more than a fantasy.
His Fantasy Maid is an entertaining and sexy novella that has a great mixture of humor, drama, passion and romance. This is a fun quick read that can be enjoyed in one afternoon.
