The Bright Lights of Vegas

When I sat down to write Everything He Wants, I wasn’t sure where the story would be set. I had a vague idea of a club, dancing, meeting and grinding, but where this would all happen was beyond me. To get the idea flowing, I let it go for a while. I didn’t rush it, but rather let it percolate. Some of the best ideas come from simply letting them happen for a while first.  So...I did.
I worked on another story and kept coming back to pictures of Vegas. Actually, pretty much everything led me to Vegas. I wanted an artist enclave where the artist has free reign. Now I understand that doesn’t automatically make one think of Vegas. New York comes to mind, too.

I like Vegas and I like air traffic controllers, too. I wanted to put them together. To do that, I had to research air traffic control centers. There just happens to be one right outside Vegas. I talked to controllers and learned what made them tick as well as what absolutely crazy hours they work. These guys and gals are working when most everyone else isn’t. Night time, holidays...the planes keep flying and someone has to make sure they get wherever they need to go.

Then there’s the artist. He’s a painter by trade and due to his work with the hotel, he’s got a place to stay. Seems like it might be too impossible? It’s not. Fair trade. He gets a cut on rent or a better price to buy the suite in return for art being created for the hotel.  He’s happy with his life, but he wants more out of that life.
So what happens to get these two guys together? Plenty, but it all starts at a club.
Want to follow their story? Then you’ll have to read Everything He Wants, a One Night Stand story. Here’s more:

Everything He Wants

a 1Night Stand story
by Megan Slayer

Trace has almost everything he wants—a great job and a well-ordered life, but he’s ready for more—the right guy to share it with. A chance meeting after a hockey game with the man of his dreams spurs him on to turn to the one source he knows will help him out—Madame Eve’s 1Night Stand service.
Jeremy can’t forget the difficult childhood and subsequent bad decisions he made while trying to forget it. He wants the gorgeous air traffic controller, but he’s afraid his past will get in the way like it always does. If all Madame Eve can give them is one night…he’ll take it.
With Eve’s help, can the men forge the relationship they both want, or will they crash and burn?

About the Author:
When she's not writing the stories in her head, Megan Slayer can be found luxuriating in her hot tub with her two vampire Cabana boys, Luke and Jeremy. She has the tendency to run a tad too far with her muse, so she has to hide in the head of her alter ego, but the boys don't seem to mind.
When she’s not obsessing over her whip collection, she can be found picking up her kidlet from school. She enjoys writing in all genres, but writing about men in love suits her fancy best. The cabana boys are willing to serve, unless she needs them. She always need them. So be nice to Javier or he will bite--on command.
She also masquerades under the name, Wendi Zwaduk.
