SEXUAL ADVANCES IN THE WORKPLACE
Hello, and welcome to one of the final stops on my Ghostly Interference blog tour! I am honored to be here today.
Sexual advances in the workplace is as common as a coffee pot in the break room. But we tend to think of them as being a man coming onto a woman.
In Ghostly Interference, Jag Peters is forced to deal with unwanted sexual advances from his boss Yvette (Yvette Calleiro this in NO way reflects on you). 🙂
His boss continually tries to corner him and it finally escalates to a breaking point.
I’ll share a short excerpt.
Within minutes, he pulled into the crowded parking
lot of the Glass Slipper. He’d make a few minutes of
polite talk with his co-workers, then excuse himself. He
liked the project Yvette had assigned him, and he
wanted to stay there. But he had limits as to how far
Crowds freaked him out and made his underarms
sweat. This place was packed. He squeezed through a
group near the door and scanned the room for what he
hoped were co-workers and not just Yvette.
He spotted her near the back and his heart sank.
She was alone. He stood frozen while he gathered his
nerve. Leave! That’s what he should do. Too late. She
was waving at him.
Inching his way through the crowd, he formed a
speech in his head.
When he reached her table, she stood and leaned
forward as if asking for a hug. He briefly patted her
“Oh, Jag, I knew you wouldn’t let me down.” She
motioned to the waitress.
“I’ll have a mineral water,” he instructed the
waitress. He turned back to Yvette. “Where is
“Why? Isn’t little ol’ me enough?” She pouted.
His eyes darted around the room hoping against
hope to spot someone, anyone he knew. Strangers’
faces stared back. He slumped into the seat next to hers.
“Of course, Yvette. I just didn’t think you’d be here
A hand wandered to his knee. “That was my plan. I
swear you never catch on. I have to spell out
He crossed his legs and leaned away, hoping that
would send a clear message. He couldn’t keep this up.
Maybe it wouldn’t be so bad getting banished to a shitty
project if it meant no more of her advances.
“No, Yvette, you don’t have to spell anything out. I
read you loud and clear, I don’t want to hurt your
feelings, but you can’t keep doing this.”
She pulled back. “Doing what? Inviting my
employees to join me for an occasional happy hour?”
“Of course, you can.” He sighed. “You own the
company. You can do whatever you want.”
“I’m so glad you realize that, Jag Peters.” She
swirled her Cosmo and brought it to her lips.
Once again, her hand found his leg and moved
smoothly up his thigh.
He clenched his teeth. “Please don’t. You’re a
married woman. I shouldn’t have to remind you.”
She purred, “Oh, don’t worry about that. He’s out
of the country until next week. He doesn’t care what I
do as long as I keep making him money.”
For a split second, Jag got a glimpse of a lost and
lonely little girl, looking for company in the only way
she knew how.
Could this day get any weirder?
“I have to be honest with you, Yvette. You’re an
attractive woman, but I’m not interested in you that
way. You’re my boss and I respect you, but I don’t
want to sleep with you. So, can we stop this craziness?”
“What? You thought I wanted you to sleep with
me? Well, I never.” She lifted her head haughtily.
“Stop with the games, Yvette,” Jag said softly.
She let her hand drop from his thigh and her voice
hardened. “Someday you’re going to regret this. Mark
He stood. “I already do. I have to go now. My
mom is waiting.” While he paused for a group of
people to let him pass, he heard her last dig.
“Project Cyclone has a new vacancy. You better
think long and hard about what you’re doing.”
If words were barbs, he’d have them sticking in his
back about now. He forced his eyes to stay focused on
the door and inched his way through to sunlight and air.
I’d love to chat. Have you ever had to deal with unwanted sexual advances in the workplace?
Jag Peters has one goal in his quiet comfortable life—to keep his karma slate wiped clean. A near-miss crash with a candy apple red Harley threatens to upend his safe world. He tracks down the rider to apologize properly. Slipping into a seedy biker bar, he discovers the rider isn’t a “he”, it’s a “she”, a dark-haired beauty.
Rena Jett is a troubled soul, who lives in a rough world. She wants no part of Jag’s apology, but even while she pushes him away, she is attracted to him. When he claims to see a ghost—her brother—can she trust him? And could her brother’s final gift, a magical rune stone with the symbol for “happily ever after” have the power to heal her wounds and allow opposites to find common ground—perhaps even love?
