Guest Blogger - Jami Davenport

Jami Davenport has been writing since she was old enough to know the alphabet. An advocate of happy endings, Jami writes sexy romantic comedy, sports hero romances, and equestrian fiction. Jami lives on a small farm near Puget Sound with her husband, a former Green Beret turned plumber, a Newfoundland cross with a tennis ball fetish, a prince disguised as an orange tabby cat, and an opinionated Hanoverian mare.

She works in IT for her day job and is a former high school business teacher. In her spare time, Jami rides and shows her dressage horse and grows roses. An avid boater, Jami has spent countless hours in the San Juan Islands, the setting for her first two books. In her opinion, it is the most beautiful place on earth.

Public Displays of Eroticism

Several months ago a good friend of mine, Cassandra Carr, asked me to take part in an anthology. Each short story had to center around sex in a public place. After all, isn’t it everyone’s hidden fantasy to engage in some hot lovin’ with an audience?

Cassandra had already written a draft of the first story, which took place in a public park. When she showed it to Cristal Ryder and me, we came up with the idea that each of our stories would take place in the same park. In fact, Cassandra’s first story would be the catalyst for the rest of the stories. 

I chose to write about two football teammates who come to town once a year and hook up with the same two women, only this year is different, and the two couples want more than a once-a-year, one-night stand. I’m hoping to write sequels to these stories in the near future.

We had a great time writing PDE, and with the superior editing of the Sybarite Seductions editors, we are very excited about our release day today. PDE will be available at all major distributors today, June 29. For more information, go to the Sybarite website:

The blurb for the five stories are as follows:

Hail Mari by Jami Davenport 
Meeting Mari Simms for one night of hot sex each year for the past four years is no longer enough for Wyatt Bedford, a ten-year veteran of professional football. This time, he plans on telling her he wants more. While waiting for her in a park, he stumbles upon a sight that changes his game plan and takes their relationship to whole new level. Can Wyatt and Mari find love in the final quarter with the clock ticking? 

Taking it Outside by Cristal Ryder
Val sets up an afternoon of play with long-time boyfriend Tyler at a secluded beach. After packing a goodie bag with playthings, she leaves a note for Tyler. While waiting for his arrival, through binoculars Val spots lovers on the distance shore, and when Tyler arrives, together they watch the couple. Voyeurism at its best. Turned on by watching the couple have sex, Val and Ty have their own public display of eroticism. 
Taking their loving outside is a surprisingly erotic treat neither expected to enjoy as much as they do.
But a bigger surprise awaits them, leaving them wondering if there is more to come.

After witnessing an exhibitionist couple in the park, her plan takes a turn toward the great outdoors. Will Alex and Jaid finally go for the long bomb or settle for minimum yardage?

Lucy, Once again thank you so much for hosting me and my fellow authors. You are an incredible writer and person. I hope we'll see you soon, maybe Emerald City?

On a less personal note, this anthology was sooo fun to write. It's a great beach read, too.
