VIP Room Service (Other Related Duties #1)
by Zenobia Renquist

If you're like me and tend to shy away from wine because it's not sweet (sweet­-sweet, not the wine definition of sweet) then I have two suggestions for you. The first wine is featured in VIP Room Service (Other Related Duties #1)—now on sale for 99¢ (regularly $2.99) until 26 Sep 2015. Let me tell you, Lexie enjoys it a lot. And while a fictional character's endorsement doesn't really mean much, or anything at all, I want readers to know she has good taste...thanks to Mr. Malena.

My first wine love, which is why it made it into the book, is Ice Wine (aka Eiswein). It's sweet and delicious and derives its name from the way the grapes are allowed to freeze on the vine when the temps change and then are harvested and processed. This way of making wine is very labor intensive, which in turn means the wine is expensive. We're talking $20 and up. It comes in slim, long­necked bottles (usually located a little above eye level) and is classified as a white dessert wine. When I say slim, I mean you'll only get about two glassfuls out of it. But then I'm guessing the makers thought you would be sipping a small amount.

The next wine is a lot more affordable (if you get the bottle from a store instead of ordering a glass at a restaurant), so drinking it the way wine should be (in the biggest glass you can find) doesn't hurt the bank account as much. If I had known about this wine when I wrote VIP Room Service I would have included it too. Ruffino Moscato d’Asti is very delicious and runs about $9.99­-$12.99 per bottle (from what I’ve seen but it might be higher in other places). Ruffino makes other types of wines, from Chianti to Toscanas but the Moscato is the only one I’ve had.

I learned about this yummy offering from Stephanie “Flash” Burke. She had me try a bottle she brought to the June 2015 Reader­-Author Get Together (RAGT) held in Ohio annually (great convention if you can get in). I've been hooked ever since. If you want a sweet wine, I suggest giving one of the above a try. Both go great with VIP Room Service (Other Related Duties #1).

VIP Room Service 
(Other Related Duties #1)
by Zenobia Renquist

A hotel erotica tale hot enough to set the screen on fire. She offers satisfaction above and beyond what is requested. Lexie's job as a maid at a five­star hotel doesn't normally include the unique and risqué form of room service that rich guest Mr. Malena has requested, nor the generous tip he's offered. Submission and exhibition and a ménage. Lexie can't resist. What should have been a one­time thing turns into an introduction into the sensual world of customer satisfaction. This is one workplace encounter that could get her fired...or will it?

She drew in a long gasping breath and then choked on it as someone knocked at the door.

“Room service.”

She widened her eyes, and her pleasure dropped to nil.

“Ah. Right on time.” Mr. Malena dialed off the vibrator, removed it, and set it aside. He called, “One moment.”

“What?” Lexie asked in a frantic whisper. She clutched at the comforter, debating if she should hide in the bathroom or under the bed. Had the server heard her? Had he recognized her voice?

She looked at her uniform draped over the back of the chair. He would know a housekeeper was with Mr. Malena. A housekeeper who was undressed with a wide variety of toys out in the open. No deductive reasoning was needed to figure out what was happening or who the housekeeper was.

Mr. Malena patted her belly. “Shhhh.” He held his finger to his lips. “Just relax.”

“I can’t relax,” Lexie whispered back. “He’ll see me.”

“No, he won’t.” He grinned. “Not your face, at any rate.” He urged her to lie back before draping a towel over her head. “There.”


“Shhhh. You don’t want him to recognize your voice, if you know him. So long as you stay still, he won’t see your face.”

“What about the rest of me? What about my uniform? And the cart outside?” Lexie could see her job ending. She should have known this was too good to be true.

“I’ll take care of it. Now hush.”

Clothing rustled. Lexie peeked under the towel in time to see Mr. Malena fold her uniform into one of the dresser drawers and close it. He slipped on a robe and then glanced back at her. She yanked the towel back down. She wanted to roll herself in the comforter. Wanted to and didn’t at the same time.

She only had to keep her face covered, and the server wouldn’t know who she was.

The idea of letting a virtual stranger see her naked titillated her. Her clit throbbed and ached to be touched. She clutched at the towel and waited.

Mr. Malena opened the door. “Thank you, my good man. I am famished. This way.”

Lexie frowned. When had he ordered room service? Had he done it before she arrived and known it would get here while they were playing? He did seem less flustered by this turn of events than she was, as if he’d planned it.

The server asked, “Where do you want— Whoa!”

A long pause followed that exclamation. The server had seen her.

** Bio **

Zenobia Renquist is the alter­ego of D. Renee Bagby. Call her Zen or Renee, she answers to both. Air Force brat turned Air Force wife, she was born in Europe, has lived in Japan and in several states of the US, including Virginia, Florida, North Carolina, Texas, California, Maryland and Hawaii. She moved a lot in her younger years and remembers all too well being the new kid in fish­out­of­water situations. But those experiences only made her better able to adapt, as well they gave her a love of travel, preferring road trips over flying. Turning her favorite pastime into her career, Renee loves to build worlds and torture her characters for the enjoyment of her readers. She can’t fill everyday with writing alone, and also enjoys watching anime, reading manga, crocheting, knitting (yarn and mail), and binging shows on Netflix. She’s a Whovian (David Tennant for the win!), a trekkie (DS9 because Odo rocked), and a fan of pretty much every Marvel live action movie and DCU animated movie. She has a wacky imagination and tends to write all over the place. In order to keep up, she only asks one thing—Leave Your Reality Behind to Discover Different and Unique Romance & Erotica.
