Hi everyone. My name is Michelle Sharp and I’m the author of the new Dream Seeker Series.

I’ve thought long and hard about this worst pick-up line thing. Time and again, I keep coming

back to one infamous night. Not because it was terribly exciting or anything, but because me

and my best friend still laugh about it today.


So first off, let me set the scene. I’m an eighties girl. Big hair. Z-Cavaricci Jeans. (Wow, I loved

those jeans.) The flash dance off the shoulder shirts. I would post a picture but it doesn’t reflect

well on me. LOL. Come on…I’m not the only eighties girl here, am I? Man, I feel old.

So I’m in college, out with my friends and its girl’s night—no guys tonight. And of course

there’s… “that guy.” You know, the one who is not nearly as hot as he thinks he is. Not quite as

funny as he’d like to be. And just a little too sweaty. His specialty is capturing random,

unsuspecting women on the dance floor if they are unfortunate enough to accidently turn in his

direction. Yes, that would be me and my friend, who is still my BFF today.


So, in order to not be rude, we kind of dance… well, sort of next to the guy, not really WITH him,

but not wanting to totally dis his Michael Jackson moves either. When the song ends, we make

a hasty retreat to the bathroom. But when we finish and exit, he’s waiting for us. Apparently he

mistook our “dance” as an invitation to a threesome. He puts his arms up to trap us in the small

hallway we’re in. In his most stud-like voice he says, “Stop. It’s Hammer time.” My friend and I of

course look at each other and without missing a beat, push him hard in the chest and reply in

unison, “Can’t touch this.”


Okay, so I told you, not that great of a story. But Cindy and I still say to each other, “Hey,

remember the MC Hammer dude?” And I got to say, I quite miss the eighties. So I’m going to

post some pictures of things I loved most about the eighties. And if I can figure out how to scan,

I will post some totally hideous pictures of myself in the eighties.


Now, whoever posts the funniest eighties picture, (the one that makes me spew coffee on my

keyboard) I will send an autographed copy of Dream Huntress. Come on eighties girls…I know

you’re out there. And by the way, to get you in the mood, go here: -I dare you to watch that and not smile 😉




Tamed by the Outlaw Blurb

Author Jessie Jameson is the Bad Girl of romance, making a huge name for herself writing love

stories with sizzling hot sex scenes. No one needs to know that her real-life inspiration is sexy

publishing exec Grayson Reynolds. Or that after the hottest sex of her life, Grayson walked out

on her.


Grayson’s finally taken the reins of his family’s publishing business, and he’s determined to sell

off the romance division. But Jessie Jameson’s contract is complicating things. It’s like she’s

been trying to ruin him ever since the mind-blowing night they shared—the night she walked out

on him.


Now the sparks are flying. Heated, sexy sparks. It’s a Wild West showdown between Jessie and

Grayson. But when Romance ends up in bed with Business, only one can walk away…
