In Lace-Covered Compromise, Adam needs to let go of assumptions about himself, about Nate, and about what Kingston Corporation—the company his father founded—should be. Adam would say he likes to takes risks, and he sincerely believes that, but when he’s faced with decisions that will shake up his carefully constructed world, he freezes, too terrified to try something that could ultimately fail.

I think most of us can relate. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about taking risks over the last few weeks, both with my writing and in my personal life. I’ve started collecting quote to inspire me to step out of my comfort zone and take a chance. I wanted to share some of my favorites with you. I’d love to hear your favorite inspirational quotes in the comments.

“If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.” – Nora Roberts

“Trust your own instinct. Your mistakes might as well be your own, instead of someone else’s.” – Billy Wilder

“Do one thing every day that scares you.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far it is possible to go.” – T.S. Eliot

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” – Anaïs Nin

“Security is mostly a superstition. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” – Helen Keller

“If you risk nothing, then you risk everything.” – Geena Davis


Blurb

Lace-Covered CompromiseAdam Kingston expects to inherit his father’s multinational conglomerate. When he finds out half of it went to Nate Thomas—an annoying man whose dreams for Kingston Corp.’s future clash with Adam’s need to stave off financial disaster—Adam is furious. He’s willing to do whatever it takes to wrest control of Kingston Corp. from Nate.

Nate may be soft-spoken, but he refuses to be swayed by Adam’s arrogant demands. When Nate accidentally drops a pair of his lacy panties in front of Adam, there’s no mistaking Adam’s interest. Nate hadn’t realized Adam was bisexual, but now that his secret is out, Nate is willing to use Adam’s lust against him if it means protecting the welfare of the company he loves.

For Adam and Nate, hatred and desire are closely linked. Their inability to compromise threatens the company and could expose their tightly held secrets. But as they work together to develop a plan to save Kingston Corp., they begin to realize there might be more to their relationship than anger and lust.


Bio

Silvia Violet writes fun, sexy stories that will leave you smiling and satisfied. She has a thing for characters who are in need of comfort and enjoys helping them surrender to love even when they doubt it exists. Silvia’s stories include sizzling contemporaries, paranormals, and historicals. She can be found haunting coffee shops looking for the darkest, strongest cup of coffee she can find. Once equipped with the needed fuel, she can happily sit for hours pounding away at her laptop.

Silvia typically leaves home disguised as a suburban stay-at-home-mom, and other coffee shop patrons tend to ask her hilarious questions like, “Do you write children’s books?” She loves watching the looks on their faces when they learn what she’s actually up to. When she needs a break from listening to the voices in her head, she spends time baking, taking long walks, curling up with her favorite books, and spending time with her family.

  8. I don’t really have any inspirational quotes, but I do have one that I’m famous for within my own family: Silence equals socks. I was trying to get them to tell me what they wanted for Christmas. If they didn’t say, they were getting socks.

  13. Jim Carey did a commencement address in which he said, “Your need for acceptance can make you invisible in this world. Don’t let anything stand in the way of the light that shines through this form. Risk being seen in all of your glory.”
    This is the fear we all face–that if we really put ourselves out there, people will reject us (that includes our art). moondrawn at gmail dot com

    Congrats, Silvia, and thanks for the risking\sharing with us. I’m not sure what all you’re thinking about, but take heart that you have taken a crucial first step, for as James Baldwin said, “Not everything that is faced can be changed. But nothing can be changed until it is faced.”
