Liz Bellamy agrees to pose for a provocative calendar to help raise money for the animal shelter where she volunteers. Although it's for a good cause, she's a little shy about posing half naked.
When she arrives at the photography studio and finds hot photographer Kent Draper waiting for her, she almost chickens out, but decides to go through with it anyway. Not only does she end up having one heck of a sexy photo shoot, but discovers being half naked in front of a hunky photographer and his camera is one hell of a turn-on. And when a girl gets that aroused, a little shyness isn't going to keep her from getting what she wants.

Excerpt from Erotic Exposure by Paige Tyler
"I'm Kent Draper, one of the photographers here. Maxine mentioned you'd be coming by for a photo shoot with your dog, so I just put two and two together. "
"Oh." Liz looked past him to the door leading to the back of the studio. "Is Maxine here?"
"Actually, she had to take off early. Her daughter went into labor a couple of hours ago, so she and her husband headed down to Olympia."
Liz didn't know whether to be relieved about having to put off the photo shoot or not. She'd spent most of the day psyching herself up for it and now she was going to have to do it all over again.
"Maxine asked me to take the pictures instead, if that works for you," he said.
Liz blinked in surprise. She hadn't expected that. "She did?"
He shoved his hands in the back pockets of his jeans. "Yeah. Unless you'd rather come back. I understand if you'd be more comfortable having her take the pictures."
Liz chewed on her lower lip. While part of her wanted to come back when Maxine was there, the other part wanted to get the whole thing over with. But could she pose in front of a guy? She wasn't so sure of that. Then again, the short robe she'd brought to wear wasn't all that revealing. It wasn't like she'd be stripping naked for him.
On the other hand, she couldn't deny the excited little hum that was starting to course through her body at the thought of a hot guy like him taking pictures of her scantily clad body. She did a mental double take. Where the heck had that come from? A minute ago, she was terrified at the thought of Maxine even seeing her shoulders. Now she was getting all hot and bothered over the idea of Kent seeing the same thing? Well, he was the hunkiest guy she'd ever seen.
"No," she said in answer to his question. "We're both already here, so we might as well go ahead and do it." Yikes, had she just said that out loud? Color suffused her face as she realized how that must have sounded, like she wanted to jump his bones right there. "The photo shoot, I mean."
He grinned. "I figured."
Her color deepened even more and she reached up to tuck her hair behind her ear again. Even Godiva was looking at her like she was an idiot.
"So, which animal shelter are you doing the calendar for again?" Kent asked.
Liz smiled, relieved he'd changed the subject. "People for Pets. Over on 12th Ave."
"No kidding? I got my dog there."
"You have a dog? What kind?"
"He's a border collie." Kent gestured to the photograph on the wall behind the front counter. "That's a picture of him."
Her smile widened as she gazed at the photo. The black and white dog looked playful, but yet alert and watchful at the same time.
"What's his name?" she asked, turning her attention back to Kent.
Her brow furrowed. "Bob? That's not a dog's name."
Kent regarded the photograph for a moment, then shrugged. "I don't know. He looks like a Bob to me."
Liz turned to study the picture of the cute dog again. No, she didn't see it.
"The bathroom's in the back if you want to get changed," Kent suggested. "Second door on the right."
Liz turned back around to look at him. She'd been so interested in talking about his dog, she almost forgot the real reason she was there. "Okay, thanks." She gave the leash in her hand a gentle tug. "Come on, Godiva."
"She can stay out here with me while you change, if you want," Kent offered.
She glanced down at Godiva, then back at him. "Sure. If you don't mind."
Handing Kent the dog's leash, Liz told Godiva she'd just be a few minutes, then made her way to the back of the studio. As she walked past the lights, umbrellas and various other photography equipment, she was amazed by how professional it all was. It made her feel like a real model. Right. Like real models were ever this nervous before a photo shoot.
Shaking her head, Liz went into the bathroom and closed the door. She slipped off her jeans and tank top. Since the pictures in the calendar were supposed to be on the sexy side, she and the other women posing for it had come up with the idea of wearing lingerie for the photos. The cami-top and bikini panties some of her friends had worn seemed a little too revealing for her, though, so she'd decided on her favorite short, silk jacquard robe instead. Gazing at her reflection in the full-length mirror as she tied the belt around her slim waist, she was glad she'd chosen the garment. Not only did the pretty powder blue robe accentuate her slender curves, but it showed off her long legs, too. She had put on make-up right before coming over to the studio, so all she had to do was touch up her lip gloss and run her fingers through her long, dark hair, and she was ready.
She took a deep breath, gave her reflection one last look in the mirror, then opened the door.
