How to speak Texan

I haven’t written about this in a while, and even though I no longer live in Texas, my heart is still there and I want to visit as much as I can. So I have to keep up my Texas-speak. Here is today’s crash course.

 

You might be a Texan if:

  1. You have ever had this conversation:Texas flag

You wanna coke?

Yeah.

What Mind.

Dr. Pepper

2. You don’t want a Texan to say

You don’t know whether to scratch your watch or wind your butt

3.  You DO want a Texan to say you’re tough as an old boot.cowboy

4. When you hear a tornado siren you go outside and look for a funnel cloud.

5. You don’t want a Texan to say you’d gripe if you was going to be hung with a brand new rope.

6. You do want a Texan to say you’re sweet as sorghum…or…you clean uo good. (This last usually before a date.

7. You aren’t surprised to find movie rentals, ammunition, chewing tobacco and bait in the same store.

8. You don’t want a Texan to say you’re dumb as a box of hammers (or rocks).

9. You do want a Texan to say you know your manners like your momma taught you.

And here is one thing to always remember:

Don’t squat with your spurs on!

Next lesson coming next month, along with more Texas lore. In the meantime, get your Texas fix with one of my latest releases, Where Danger Hides. This is Book #! of Corporate Heat, about a mega conglomerate located…where else?…Texas, a mega state.

After a night of wild sex with a total stranger, Taylor Scott never expected to see the man again. What a shock when he walked into her office weeks later as the representative of the father she never knew she had, a man who’d left her his entire empire. With

Her father’s killers still at large and vultures hoveriwheredangerhides_9781786515728_800 copyng to pick apart his massive corporation, Noah Cantrell soon becomes the only person she can trust. He’s also the man who teaches her the pleasures of erotic love, demanding her body even as he sets barriers to any kind of personal relationship – because Noah has a dark secret he never shares, one that prevents him from ever opening himself up to anyone again except in bed. As the two follow a treacherous path through the world of corporate intrigue, a path that takes them from the corporate boardroom to the jungles of Mexico, with the sex growing hotter by the night, can Taylor find a way break through that wall he’s built around himself?

Guest Blogger Maggie Carpenter’s Cowboy Bodyguard – LOGAN

LOGAN

Cowboy Bodyguard

(Alpha Male Master Series: Book Four)

A dominant cowboy with mesmerizing eyes and a six pack she could wash her clothes on is a dream come trueor is he?

Book Description

A steamy love story laced with danger and suspense.

Brandy Coleman’s face is flaming red. As the owner of a barn for retired horses she’s had her share of mishaps, but nothing can compare to this deeply embarrassing moment. She is looking up at a stranger who has the dreamiest hazel eyes she’s ever seen, and a six pack beneath his open shirt that is making her knees weak. The problem? Her hose burst and squirted water everywhere, leaving her hair a tangled mess and her clothes absolutely drenched.

Logan Scott has arrived at Rainbow’s End Ranch to apply for a job as a ranch hand. He is led into the barn by an exuberant Golden Retriever where he is met by a stunning sight. A gorgeous girl, dripping wet, is bent over wrapping a towel around her head. As she straightens up he can’t help but notice the thin pink T-shirt clinging to her luscious curves.

The sparks fly, Brandy hires him, but as the days pass a threat looms over the ranch…and Brandy herself.

A known thug wants her property and won’t take no for an answer. Logan declares he’s changing his job description from ranch hand to bodyguard, and to keep her safe, Brandy will have to do as he says. Will she…?

LOGAN: Cowboy Bodyguard, like all Maggie Carpenter books, it is a riveting page-turner with unexpected twists. Pick up your copy today, and escape to the romance and drama at Rainbow’s End Ranch.

EXCERPT

They Meet

With her long dark hair in a tangled mess and her clothes saturated, she was in no fit state to be greeting anyone, and the barn was an absolute shambles. In addition to the watery mess, none of the stalls had been cleaned, there were bags of feed waiting to be carried into the feed room, and the barn aisle hadn’t been swept in days. Hurrying into the tack room she opened up the storage cupboard in search of a clean towel, but pulling one out she knocked over a tub of soap powder. As it hit the floor the powder spilled out, and utterly exasperated she threw up her hands.

“To hell with it. I’ll just add it to the list of all the other crap that needs to be done around here. Damn you, Josh, you lying thieving snake!”

Deciding to wrap up her dripping hair she bent over to let her long locks fall forward, but just as she placed the towel around her head Lola returned, and trotting over began to vigorously lick her face.

“Dammit dog, get away.”

“Excuse me, are you Brandy Coleman?”

The male voice was deep and carried a slight western twang. It was a voice with which she was not familiar, and deeply embarrassed she raised her eyes completely unprepared for the gorgeous man that greeted her gaze. She didn’t even consider why he was there. All she could focus on were his dreamy hazelnut eyes and  defined six-pack clearly visible beneath his unbuttoned white shirt.

“If this is a bad time I can come back. There was no-one up at the house, and the dog, well, she sort of led me over here.”

“Uh, no, it’s fine. Please excuse the state I’m in,” she stammered, hating that her face was flaming red. “I, uh, had a fight with a hose.”

“Looks like the hose won,” he said with a ridiculously wicked grin that suggested he was wishing he’d witnessed the scene.

“Yeah, I guess it did.”

As she tightened the towel around her head she glanced down at her clothes, and to her chagrin her baby pink t-shirt was unashamedly clinging to her like second skin.

“My apologies,” he continued. “I didn’t introduce myself. I’m Logan Scott.”

“Hi, and yes, I’m Brandy Coleman,” she said, wishing she’d wrapped the towel around her body rather than her head. “Do you have a horse you want to retire? Is that why you’re here?”

“Actually, Max at the hardware store said you might be in need of a helpin’ hand, and from the looks of things he was right.”

“I sure am. I had to let someone go with no notice about a week ago. That’s why I had the fight with the hose. He was supposed to get a new one, and I haven’t had a chance to do it. Damn thing exploded on me.”

“Would you prefer I come back later. Looks like you need to—”

“No, no,” she said cutting him off. “Sorry, I didn’t mean to interrupt. Why don’t you wander around the place and meet me at the house in about fifteen minutes? I’m so wet I can’t think straight.”

She suddenly realized what she’d said. He didn’t blink. He was either ignoring the inadvertent sexual innuendo or hadn’t picked up on it. Either way she still wanted the ground to swallow her up.

More cowboy menage! TWO WILD FOR TEACHER!

Yes, the title’s a little over the top, but I love word play and teasing, so I’m not apologizing!

Do you love cowboy menage stories? Love it when brothers are involved? How about the added taboo of the brothers going after their teacher? Well, I have a story that you will find very naughty, but surprisingly sweet…

Two Wild for Teacher releases July 28th! It’s one of the stories I got back from Samhain when they closed their doors. I’ve revised it, given it a new cover, and it’s ready for prime time! Read a long excerpt!

Even though it’s #6 in the series, the only story I’d say you need to read before this one is #5, Four-Gone Conclusion!

Two Wild for Teacher

Lone Star Lovers, Book 6

Two bad boy cowboys need a little tutoring to learn how to love…

Fathers know to keep their daughters close whenever Sam Logan’s twin sons come to town. Those two hell-raisers have a bad rep in Two Mule, Texas. All of it earned. When it becomes clear his youngest sons won’t settle down without another nudge, Sam reissues his challenge. Find a wife…

There’s only been one woman who could hold their attention for more than one night, but she’s been out of reach. Their former teacher’s a little too worried about a pesky morals clause to let them close. But they’re older now and ready to prove to her that sometimes rules are meant to be broken…

Molly Pritchet thinks her path is predetermined: to always be a child’s teacher, never a mother or a wife. Until the two boys who tempted her way back when crash back into her life. Overwhelmed by yearnings she’s long suppressed, she’s swept along on a tide of forbidden desires.

Pre-order your copy here!

Excerpt from Two Wild for Teacher

Sam Logan couldn’t sleep. He had one last chore to take care of. One he’d been putting off. No time like now to get ’er done.

He walked softly on bare feet down the long hallway, past the master bedroom he’d given up when Johnny married Ellie and moved both his new wife and his brother Killian into the large room to share it. He shook his head, a glimmer of a smile tugging at his mouth. Sounds that hadn’t been heard in this old house in over three long years echoed up and down the hallway.

Sexy sounds—happy sighs and laughter, slick slaps, an occasional yelp from Ellie. He could only imagine what his two oldest boys were doing to the girl. But they all seemed happy with the arrangement, and both men were gaga for Mean Ellie Harker. Who would have thought one simple pronouncement would produce such lightning-fast results?

It’s time you boys found yerselves a wife.  Continue reading

COVER REVEAL and bonus NMFR from Sarah M. Anderson

Hi everyone! Last month’s winner was Tanya B! Tanya, you win a super-early copy of Little Secrets: Claiming His Pregnant Bride! Send your snail-mail address to message @ sarahmanderson . com!

Starting this month, we’re going to move to Rafflecopters on the blog. I list prizes and pick winners but unless their emails are connected to their comments, I don’t have any way to contact the winners and they don’t seem to be emailing me to claim their prizes. So we’re going to give Rafflecopter a try and hopefully, that means more people win fun books!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

This month I have two fun things–a Cover Reveal and an excerpt! First up–a new cover and title for an old favorite. With the closure of Samhain, I got rights back to a bunch of my books. Including Mystic Cowboy and Masked Cowboy.

I’d also self-published two more stories in the Men of the White Sandy series, Nobody and Clarence. And I’ve been working on the next story in that series, Sheriff Tim. So when I got the rights back, I decided to self-publish all of the stories with refreshed covers and new titles. I also made a few updates to the stories, the biggest of which was changing Nobody’s heroine’s name from Melinda to Melonie. I’d originally written it as Melinda in Mystic Cowboy but when I wrote Nobody, I wrote the whole dang thing with Melonie (yes really) and luckily, a beta reader was like, um… So I was able to go back and change her name! Yah, updates!

Because, yes, it bothered me that the titles didn’t match up. Two were Something Cowboy and two were Character Names. So now the Men of the White Sandy are titled thusly:

  1. The Medicine Man (was Mystic Cowboy)
  2. The Rancher (was Masked Cowboy)
  3. The Shadow (was Nobody)
  4. The Medic (was Clarence)
  5. The Sheriff (BRAND NEW STORY!)

So! Romanced by the Cover, run by the talented Alexandra Haughton, has been working on updating the covers. I don’t say ‘new’ covers because we were able to repurchase the stock art for Mystic, Nobody and we got the same model for Clarence (but new and improved–without his SHIRT!).

So without further ado (hasn’t there been enough ado thus far?) here’s the refreshed cover of Mystic Cowboy, now officially The Medicine Man!

Medicine200x300

(If you subscribed to my newsletter, you’d already have had this bad boy land in your mail boxes. So you should subscribe to get more super-early sneak-peeks, shouldn’t you? YES YOU SHOULD.)

I’ll start rolling out the rest of the Men of the White Sandy covers and stories later in August. But trust me–you’re going to *love* them! I think I’m looking at…October for the release of The Sheriff? Don’t hold me to that, tho. But I’m working on it!

Now for an excerpt! Last month I talked about Not My 1st Rodeo, which is out! Just last week, Entangled released the second volume, appropriately titled Not My 1st Rodeo 2!

Here’s the blurb for the trio of novellas:

In Donna Alward’s Seducing the Sheriff, Cassidy’s first foray into online dating is an unqualified disaster. Witness to a bank robbery, she’s now in danger. Sexy sheriff Joe Lawson is willing do whatever it takes to protect her, even if that means hiding her away in his secluded mountain cabin.

RodeoBox2_1600 (1)In Roping the Rancher by Sarah M. Anderson, all Tommy knows is girls his own age don’t do it for him. Carly has no interest in being anyone’s cougar, but when Tommy says he’ll do whatever she tells him to, she can’t resist the chance to take what she wants from a man with no strings attached. But no one said anything about scarves…

In Jenna Bayley-Burke’s Captivating the Cowboy, aspiring designer Jules is about to head to New York. Before she leaves, she’s going to help widower Slade Weston find the perfect ranch wife, but finding his forever turns into schmexytimes. Jules doesn’t want to be a wife and mom, and Slade isn’t moving across the country. It’s just a fling, until she’s not sure where she truly belongs.

And now, for a short, HOT excerpt from Roping the Rancher!

But,” he went on, “if you’re looking for something else, something fun with no strings and no commitment, I can give it to you. I’ll do whatever you want me to.”

She exhaled. “Anything?” she teased—but it wasn’t teasing, not really. Could he seriously be saying what she wanted him to be saying?

What did she want him to be saying?

What did she want?

She felt the tension in his body as the tips of his fingertips scraped against her skin. “Within reasonable limits,” he said and she thought she might be hearing things, but his voice almost sounded shaky.

She hoped like hell it was a good kind of shaky. She leaned into his touch. “Nothing weird. Nothing super kinky.”

“Why don’t you give me an example?” She saw him swallow. “Why don’t you tell me what you want me to do to you?”

Dear God, he was serious. No one had ever asked. No one had even thought about asking. What she wanted had always been secondary to what they wanted. The boys she climbed into the back seat with in high school, the little-more-than boys in college. And Drake—Carly should’ve known better, but didn’t.

She wasn’t playing around anymore. Suddenly, almost twenty years of not getting what she wanted felt like it was weighing her down, a stone around her neck. If she didn’t say what she wanted—if Tommy didn’t give it to her this very instant—then she was going to lose all hope.

Now all she had to do was say the words. He was still cupping her face and she was still leaning into his touch. It was an intimate gesture, but it wasn’t intimate enough.

“What would you say,” she began, her voice barely a whisper, “if I told you to take me home?”

The air between them got even thinner as he lifted her face toward him. “Is that all? You just want me to take you home?” He stared into her eyes, his pupils dilated, and his breath warm against her skin. “Or is there something you need me to do to you when we get there?”

“Cocky, aren’t we?”

Oh, that smile—that was going to be the end of her. But what a way to go.

“It’s not cocky if I can back it up. But I can’t back it up until you tell me what you need.”

She’d given him a chance and he’d convinced her. Now, she had to convince him. This was quite possibly an once-in-a-lifetime chance and she couldn’t let it slip by because she was afraid. She wasn’t going to be afraid to get what she wanted.

“Take me home,” she heard herself say and was amazed at how confident and powerful she sounded. But this was who he was telling her she could be right now—a confident, powerful woman who always got what she wanted. “You’re going to go down on me until I come.”

WHEW! That’s only the beginning, folks. Wow. Trust me.

Still riding with the Malloy Family by Beth Williamson

Howdy y’all, Beth Williamson here!

Hard to believe it’s been a month since I hung out with y’all! I’m still busy republishing the Malloy Family series books each week. Since there are 13 weeks, that’s 4 months of #MalloyMonday. 🙂

I’ve made it to book 9, THE FORTUNE, the first of the prequels. After I wrote the original 8, I said to myself, I’m done. Then the awesome readers spoke and asked me time and again if I was going to write anymore Malloys.

The funny thing was, I hadn’t planned on it but then when one person suggested I write the parents’ story, I was intrigued. It rolled around in my head a bit gaining momentum and then I saw the gun.

What gun, you might ask? Well, there’s a tiny, tiny finger pistol in THE FORTUNE called Le Petit Protector. I saw it on a tv show and the entire story of John and Francesca’s romance exploded (no pun intended).

She shoots him with it. Isn’t that how most romances start? 😀

I hope you give this book a read and enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

***

When Francesca Chastain sets off on the six month journey from New York to Oregon with her family, she is running from the darkness of her past. The land of milk and honey offers a fresh start. The wagon master’s assistant, John Malloy, ruins her dress and sets her off balance with his smile, his flirting and his handsome visage. She doesn’t want to find herself in need of him, or worse, falling in love with him.

John Malloy has worked wagon trains for three years, saving every cent to start his horse ranch in the Wyoming Territory. This is his last trip and the feisty Frankie Chastain turns it into the most confusing, frustrating time of his life. Then she disappears.

Frankie’s past shadows her travels and threatens her future. Trapped in the wild, she has to rely on John to get back to her family. Neither one expects the intensity of their attraction or the fight for their lives.

Overseas Trip and New Release

I had an absolute wonderful trip overseas. My sister and I took a vacation we’d been planning for about a  year. We went to England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales for 23 days. It was a long time to be gone from home and writing, but I had so much fun.

We weren’t on our own for the entire time, we spent 2 days in London on our own before we joined a 14 day tour group. The tour group spent a day in London, then off we went through England, up into Scotland, then a ferry ride over to Ireland, all over Ireland, another ferry ride into Wales, a couple of days in Wales and we ended back up in London.

When the tour was done, spent 2 days in London, then took the trail back to Edinburgh Scotland to take a day trip out to the higlands and the Loch Ness – the bad thing that day was it poured rain the entire day which put a damper on being able to do a lot of things. We had some free time so we were able to go to Holyroot – one of the royal palaces. It was closed when we went through with the tour group because Princess Ann was in residences. Plus we had afternoon tea at the restaurant there, it was so much fun.

Then we went back to London for our last 3 days. One of the highlights for me was going to the British Museum. We spent over 4 hours there. I was lucky enough to find a private tour for the two of us that lasted 2 1/2 hours that showed us everything we really wanted to see, plus our guide had a lot of information we never would have gotten on our own.

While there were things we found we wanted to do there wasn’t enough time to do it all but we hit everything we planned and a few things we didn’t.

Upon arriving home, I had to dive back into writing. Galleys had arrived for two books, have a short story due on 8/1 that hasn’t even been written yet.

But the best news is I have a new release Passionate Desire will be released on 7/17 – it’s up for preorder right now. I will tell you this is a new an improved edition of my first book – In Plain Sight. When I got the rights back to it, I took the book and expanded it, showing more of the relationship between Joe and Vicki and how they fell in love.

By the end of July I should have more news about my two book series and when it will be released.

Until then here’s the cover for Passionate Desire and click here for the link to the preorder:

Can a Bad Boy become a Good Man? by Paty Jager

canstock saloon doorsI’m working on a new historical western series set around the Silver Dollar Saloon in Shady Gulch, Dakota Territory.  The series will revolve around characters who work at or frequent the Silver Dollar Saloon. The owner has a past, all the saloon girls have pasts they’d like to forget and in the first book the preacher, who falls for the saloon owners sister, has a past he’d liked to forget.

You read all the time about a man going to prison and finding God and changing his life. Larkin Webster didn’t go to jail but he came damn close to losing his life for a group of men who would have laughed about it and continued their killing and stealing without another thought about him.

He didn’t come from a bad home. But he craved excitement. At fourteen, he met a canstock cowboy saloon girlyoung man who took any dare and stared down men older than him in gun fights. The lure of the excitement took Larkin from his home and sent him on a path that he isn’t proud of.  The day  he had to hide in an outhouse to keep from being killed by his own gang and the law,  Topeka Kid died and Larkin Webster was reborn.  He attended the nearest theological school and moved to Shady Gulch at the request of his brother.

When Savannah Gentry  stumbles off the train and into his arms, he chases the excitement once more. This time, his heart won’t listen to his head.  Loving this woman may end his career as a preacher, but it will make his life a challenge until the day he is put in the ground.

This book is full of steamy romance and hard choices.

With the heroes or heroines in each book in the series having a rough past, the love between them will build slowly, but when they come together, my goal is to make bombs go off and hearts crumble.

My cover designer is still working on the graphics for the series. When it is done I’ll reveal it and the first book. In the mean time you can pick up any of my other historical or contemporary western romance books at all ebook stores. Check out my website to see what I have.  patyjager.net

Military Cowboys On The Loose by Donna Michaels

Hi everyone, it’s Donna Michaels and I had hoped to have pictures of my office since I posted last month, but other than a path to my desk, there’s more clutter than floor. The office took a back seat, because I was too busy with two releases this month! 😉

On June 8th, I was honored to release ELITE PROTECTOR as one of the launch authors in Elle James’ Brotherhood Protectors Kindle World!

ELITE PROTECTOR
Brotherhood Protectors KW

(Connected to the Dangerous Curves Series)

Elite Protector 600x900kwlogo

 

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B071WQYQL4

 

He risks more than his life protecting the commander’s niece.

Lured to the mountains of Montana under the assumption her uncle and her godfather recommended her as a bodyguard for Brotherhood Protectors—an agency started by one of their former SEALs—Kat Crawford, former NIO, discovers too late, she’s really there as a client.

Former DEVGRU SEAL, Brogan “Sonic” O’Neal, dropped his packet to return to Montana to take over his grandfather’s woodshop and care for the dying man. A deathbed promise to “not” return to the teams sentences him to life without the adrenaline rush he craves, until an old SEAL buddy hires him as a part time bodyguard for Brotherhood Protectors.

A request to protect the niece of a former CO lands Brogan his first assignment, but it could be his last. Keeping objective is impossible. He’s watched the woman grow up through pictures in the commander’s office. Now she’s at Brogan’s cabin. Their chemistry is off the charts. And giving into their attraction is as inevitable as a Montana sunrise.  

But when Kat suggests the Brotherhood uses her as bait to end the threats once and for all, Brogan realizes his feelings for the woman run deep. Can he resist the alpha need to protect her? If he does, will she survive? If he doesn’t, will their relationship?

Then just four days later, on June 12th, I had my 3rd release with Entangled! THE RIGHT RANGER, part of The Men of At Ease Ranch Series! The reviews have already been popping in, and they’ve been amazing! Here are a few:

Reviews

5 stars “This book is like a fresh baked brownie with ice cream on top! Hot and sweet and oh so good! ~Shawn, Goodreads

5 stars This captivating read pulled me in from the from the first sentence and had me flying through the pages in search of what I hoped to be a very well deserved happily ever after, and I am happy to report that I found just what I was looking for… and more!” ~Red’s Romance Reviews

THE RIGHT RANGER
Book 3/ The Men of At Ease Ranch Series

 

TRR_4.png

Amazon | iTunes | B & N | Kobo

It’s time to claim what’s his…

Haley Wagner’s life just got a lot more complicated. As if turning her struggling ranch around isn’t tough enough, she’s forced to call him for help. With his hard eyes and even harder body, Cord is an irritatingly sexy contradiction of hot and cold. How can she possibly hide her embarrassing secret when just looking at Cord is a combustible event?

Former Army Ranger Cord Brannigan has a secret, too. He promised his fallen teammate he’d protect the tempting, fiercely independent Haley from a distance, but now they’re stuck together for three weeks. Alone. Keeping his hands off will take every ounce of control he can muster. And that control is slipping…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Now, I have a dark haired, dark eyed former Army Ranger in my writing cave. 😉 I’m working on Book 4 in The Men of At Ease Ranch series. This time, I’m playing…I mean, writing Vince’s story! He’s a ton of fun!

And next month, July 13-15, I’ll be in Nashville for the Weekend With The Authors awta swagconference! If you’re in the area, I hope you’ll drop in on Saturday for the book signing! I’m hoping to have print copies of The Right Ranger with me, along with the first two!! And I’ll have some fun swag to hand out, including these Lula Belle themed pieces of swag!

 

Enjoy what’s left of June!!

Thanks for reading,

~Donna

Jamie Randall—a decade hadn’t lessened the bitter taste of her name. Zane Cameron had only been good enough for sultry summer sex. But the local hell raiser is the sheriff now and determined to run her hot little body off the worthless piece of land her father left her and right out of his sleepy little town. Just as soon as he scratched a twelve-year-old itch.

Explosive passion changes Zane’s mind, but before they can explore their feelings, strange events threaten Jamie and it becomes obvious someone else wants her out of the way. Dirty money, cold-blooded murder, and deadly secrets interfere with Zane’s plans to convince Jamie to give him a second chance.

Excerpt:

He closed the last little bit of distance between them, his eyes burning into hers like twin torches. Then his mouth was on hers, just like the day before, burning her, sucking the life out of her while infusing it back into her body. She wanted to hit him, push him away, but her traitorous arms wounds up around his neck and clung to him, holding his head to hers. Her panties were already soaked, and that old familiar quiver raced through the muscles of her cunt.

His tongue probed her mouth, taking, taking. There was nothing gentle about this kiss. And to her shame she gave as good as she got. She couldn’t have moved away if her life was threatened, not even when his hands slid down to reach under her T-shirt and cup her breasts through the thin cotton of her bra. One touch of those rough-silken lips and those big hot hands and her brain simply melted away.

His tongue had a life of its own, probing into the recesses of her mouth, licking, tasting, teasing. His fingers pinched her nipples just hard enough to cause a shiver of pleasure-pain. She hung onto him for dear life, drowning in the sensations that assaulted her body.

The harder he tugged on her nipples, the more he plundered her mouth, the weaker her legs became until she wasn’t sure she could stand at all if she took her arms from his neck.

When every bit of breath had left her lungs, he lifted his mouth just a fraction, tracing the edge of her lips with the tip of his tongue. “Jamie?”

“Mmm?” She forced her eyes open.

“You using your old bedroom?”

“What? My bedroom?”

He extricated himself from her grip and lifted her in his arms. “Your bedroom. I’m going to fuck the life out of you, and I don’t want to do it on that ratty old couch.”

She could barely focus enough to from clitoris to vaginal opening and back, gathering the cream she knew was gushing from her. He lifted the finger to his mouth and sucked on it.

“Taste good, too. Just as I’ve remembered point toward the stairs. “Yes. Same room. Second door on the right.”

Later, when her brain kicked into gear again and she could pluck one rational thought from it, she’d wonder why she hadn’t just ordered Zane Cameron out of her house. He certainly wouldn’t take her by force. That wasn’t his style. No, even after all this time, he knew just which buttons to push and how to push them, and in an instant all her defenses were down. But at the moment, all she could think of was how good he felt next to her and the explosion his kisses had set off in her body.

He held her against his chest as he took the steps two at a time. Using his foot, he pushed the door to her room open and in seconds had her flat on her back on her clean white sheets, legs dangling over the edge of the bed. She opened her eyes again to see him staring at her with a look of intense hunger on his face, and instantly heat warmed her blood.

With hands that shook slightly, he pulled the T-shirt over her head, disposed of her bra, and stripped her shorts and panties from her, tossing everything to the floor. Then he bent her knees and spread her thighs wide, exposing her to his ravenous gaze.
