How naked is naked?

IMPORTANT: comment for a chance to win a copy of stark naked. i will announce the winner here tomorrow morning so be sure to come back and check.

The whole Naked Cowboys series started out with a real incident—a man who came home slightly blltzed one night t his wife who had a friend visiting watching television with her and having margarita night. She managed to get him into bed but five minutes later the bedroom door opened and bam! There he was in all his glory. The story of how the wife handled it had me in hysterics and I said, “I gotta put that in a book.”

Lucky for me people loved the story and wanted me to write one for the hero’s sister. April 30 Buck Naked hits the virtual bookstores and later this year Stripped Naked. Next year? Stay tuned!!!

So if you haven’t caught the series yet, here’s a taste of Book #1, Stark Naked, in preparation for Book #2.

Reenie Davenport learned the hard way that men are cheating, promotion-thieving poison. A month after making a fresh start in Texas, she looks forward to taking a breather at her old college friend Amy’s family ranch. Instead, she’s left breathless when Amy’s very drunk, very sexy, very naked brother lands at her feet. Even as she hardens her heart, a small part of her wishes that quickly tossed towel would shift…just a little.
When Matt Stark shows up at Reenie’s door to apologize, he can barely squeeze a word past her emotional barriers. Suddenly nothing else matters except convincing her not all men are clones of her ex. Sweet-talking her into lunch is only the beginning.
One touch, and boom! Much to Reenie’s dismay, lunch ends in a hot, flaming dessert—in her bed. Shutting Matt out isn’t as easy as simply blowing out a match. Especially since this cowboy is equally determined to unlock her heart.

And they were off on a trip down memory lane, laughing and giggling. Suddenly Amy’s eyes widened and her face turned white then red as she stared at something past Reenie’s shoulder. Reenie turned to look and nearly passed out. Leaning in the entryway to the short hall was Matt Stark. And he was completely, starkly naked.
She felt her jaw drop. It certainly wasn’t the first time she’d seen a man naked, but she’d never been greeted this way by a perfect stranger. To make it worse, he was the sexiest man she’d ever laid eyes on. And just when she’d sworn off men altogether.
Her hands clenched and unclenched and her breath felt trapped in her throat. Reenie knew she should turn away, move away, something, but she was mesmerized by that very sexy body. The initial slam of physical attraction kicked up at least ten notches. Now she could see the definition of every muscle, his flat stomach, the thick pelt of hair on his chest arrowing down to a cluster of hair from which rose what had to be absolutely the most magnificent cock she’d ever seen. Even semi-erect it was long and thick, the head broad and flared and the color of a ripe plum. Below it hung the heavy sac of his testicles, brushing his thighs.
Icy heat flashed over her, the pulse in her cunt drummed harder and her panties were suddenly damp at the thought of that erection sliding into her waiting wet warmth.
Okay, what was she supposed to do? Pretend this was an everyday occurrence for her? Faint like a bodice-ripper heroine? Be shocked? Disgusted?
Amy’s shout startled Reenie out of her trance, and wrenched her gaze away from the man. Seeing the embarrassment on Amy’s face she politely covered her own with her hand. Still, she couldn’t stop herself from peeking between her fingers. Yup, he was still naked. The first thing she thought was what an ass. The second was what a hottie. Every one of her nerve endings sat up and begged. Great. Just what she needed. Not. And then the image of Asshole Aaron flashed across her mind, her stomach cramped and she thought, Not again. Please, god, not again.
“Hey, Reenie?” That warm as molasses drawl crawled over her, even in her stupefied state. “Reenie, Reenie, Reenie. I came out to see if you’d come keep me company.”

    Stark Naked looks like a hot read! I loved reading the comments of your other fans, too. It only took me 20+ years to convince my hubby (with a great build) that it was okay to tend the grill just outside the back door in his print boxers with a button. I had to quote the stats on how many men do this before he would give it a try. The patio is surrounded by more than waist-high shrubs!
