Breathless Press Day with Mia Epsilon

First off, my apologies for the lateness for the post. Between working second shift and other issues, I lost track of time and forgot to post this. I apologize to the author and Breathless Press for this delay.

Welcome author Mia Epsilon today

Can you please tell us about your latest/upcoming book(s)?

'That Night' is a Flirt or short story featuring the lead characters from my first novel Wedding Belle Blues. It's the more detailed version of an event referred to often in Wedding Belle Blues and shapes how each character sees the other.

How did you come with the idea for this story?

My editor, Jen Bradlee, asked me while we were doing edits for Wedding Belle Blues, "So what happened that night between Robin and Anna? Can you tell me or better yet write me that scene?" I wrote it, she loved it and asked me to submit it to her as a short story so with some clean up, edits and adding That Night was born.

Who is your ultimate "book boy/girlfriend"? You know, that hottie you read about and drool over.

Oh gosh, I have dozens. Roarke from Nora Roberts' 'In Death' series and I have had a long standing lust relationship since he first entered my life in 1995. Then there's Gabe and Alex, these very mysterious men from Kirsten Blacketer's Shadow Guardians series. And oh, I can't leave out Joren, the pirate Captain from Decadent Kane's Steele Your Soul.

Who is your Celebrity crush? And what would you do if you ever meet them?

Benedict Cumberbatch. I love him. I do. Those eyes and the way he's not afraid to be so comfortable in his own skin or to make jokes even at his own expense. And his voice, that smooth as honey tone that just rolls over your skin. Who can't love a man like that?
Once I stopped staring like an utter fool and stammering like an idiot, I'd love to ask him what growing up with famous theatre parents was like, his favourite books and characters and just listen to him talk.

If you could collaborate with another author on a secret project, who would you pick to work with and why?

Um, tough, because there are so many authors I greatly admire and respect and wouldn't mind working with. I recently had a short story in the book called The Wonderland Tales with 12 other authors and we did a radio interview with on WON Radio. It was a hysterically funny night. I'd love to work with any of them on something any time.

That Night
Breathless Press 
Flirt/Contemporary Romance
Available at Publisher

What do you get when you have two best friends who happen to be roommates stewing in sexual tension? A night they will never forget. 
Anna and Robin are college roommates and best friends. Even though the chemistry sizzles between them, they have remained platonic for over three years. One night will change everything.
Robin has struggled to repress his feelings for Anna. He seeks out brief and meaningless relationships with the women on campus, who flock to his charm, flashing blue eyes, and bad-boy appearance. But Robin can't get Anna off his mind or out of his heart.
Anna has watched Robin move from one woman to the next, never settling for any. She keeps up the pretense of friends-only while secretly longing to be the woman to tame him. The combination of college demands, a failed date, and simmering sexual frustration explodes into a night of passionate need. But when it's over…what happens then?

Teaser Excerpt:

Why do I keep putting myself through this? Robin Bates paused in the stairwell to tap his head on the wall. What kind of an idiot kept up this charade for so long? He should just tell her. Why couldn't he just tell her? It was simple, really. He stomped up the last flight of steps and down the hall to their room. All he had to do was say the words and accept the fall out. He opened the door, took a deep breath, and spoke. "Anna, there's something I need to tell you."
The small lamp on the bedside table glowed in the semi darkness. Books and crumpled papers lay tossed around her on the tangled sheet and blanket of the bed. Her lap top perched at an angle, half on and half off the pillows. Stats, Robin saw, her least favorite subject and the only one she struggled to master. He had made a promise to help Anna with the latest assignment and had gone on the disaster date from hell instead. His gaze followed the line of her bare legs. She said they weren't perfect; he said they were. Sure, they didn't look like they went on forever. Who wanted legs up to a woman's neck anyway when there were so many other good things in between? Anna's legs, long, lean, strong, and just a bit golden from their recent holiday trip to visit her folks in Hawaii made his mouth water.
Robin groaned as his gaze trailed higher. She wore the same blue nightshirt he'd seen her wear a thousand times. Thin from numerous washings, all but transparent, it rode high on thighs he'd give his right arm to caress, which made no sense, because without his arm he'd never be able to— Anna whispered something and shifted a bit, her thighs parting slightly. He felt actual pain as the cotton rode a bit higher and all the blood surged to one particular part of his body. Did she have on those cute little smiley face panties? Or did she wear the ones with the little bows? She usually only chose her silk ones for special occasions like parties.
"Jesus, get a grip on yourself." Robin ran a hand through his hair. "I've not perving my best friend while she sleeps. I'm not so desperate. Yet."
