Giveaway/Release Event: Animate Me by Ruth Clampett


She seemed far beyond his reach…could love draw them together?

For years shy animator Nathan has carried a torch for Brooke, the beautiful and dynamic Director of Development at their animation studio, even creating B-Girl, a comic-book heroine in her likeness. When a new project throws the two of them together, lovestruck Nathan finally seizes his moment – only to find Arnauld, head of the animation studio, claiming exclusive rights to Brooke’s affections.

But Nathan, it turns out, is not giving up on his dreams so easily. With inspired determination, he sets out to be the super hero of wooing his girl. Threatened by his persistence, Arnauld plays dirty – only to spark an uprising at the studio that unleashes the sort of havoc only a building full of frustrated animators can create. While Nathan pulls out all the stops to win his B-girl, Brooke has to choose. Should she pursue the sparkling career that has taken her years to build…or follow her heart?


"You look so damn sexy in that tux. Will you wear it again for me sometime?"

"Whenever you want," I murmur as I caress her soft skin just above her ankle. I reach over and start to undo the other sandal.

"You know, Nathan, when the time comes I'm going to have a really hard time sharing you with another girl."

Oh Brooke, you didn't just say that, did you? I can't help but look at her shocked.

She must take my expression the wrong way because her expression falls.

"Oh, but of course. You're nothing like Arnauld. You probably couldn't be with more than one woman at a time. Could you?"

"No, I wouldn't want to be." I state firmly before I think how she will react.

She nods as she watches me touch her. With one hand tenderly massaging the ball of her foot, the other runs up her calf, each stroke just a little higher.

She closes her eyes and moans again. I notice her legs pull further apart, just slightly, yet the suggestion is there. She lifts the hem of her dress up higher. I'm so excited I can barely breathe.

Ruth Clampett, daughter of legendary animation director Bob Clampett, grew up surrounded by artists and animators.
