Second off–Spring happened! I know for sure because my magnolia tree bloomed. YAH! Of course the magnolia blooming is a sure-fire way to guarantee that we’ll have three straight days of rain and wind. It never fails. I usually get a day of my pretty tree and then boom, awful weather. SIGH. At least the daffodils are hardy. In another week or so, the tulips will be up!
Also, I knew it was Spring because The Kid has Spring Break. He went back to school this morning. IT WAS NOT A MOMENT TOO SOON. But we had a lot of fun (mostly). We had a sleepover, saw Home (which was a super cute movie) and we spent Easter with my in-laws. Did you guys do anything special for Spring Break?
Okay! On to the sexy hero! NEW out this month is The Nanny Plan! I’m so excited about this book–it’s near and dear to my heart!
Here’s the blurb:
This billionaire bachelor has a baby challenge…
Being a father to his orphaned infant niece is out of this tech billionaire’s comfort zone. Lucky for Nate Longmire, Trish Hunter is a natural at motherhood, and she’s agreed to be his temporary nanny. But long glances, slow kisses and not-so-innocent touches are strictly off-limits…
Trish’s goal is to help Nate in exchange for a big donation to her charity for Lakota kids. Falling for her bachelor boss—and his adorable baby girl—is not part of the plan. But when the month is up, will she be able to walk away?
Fun stuff, right? I did a super-fun character interview with Nate and Trish over at The Book Queen’s Book Palace–I hope you check it out. It’s sort of an epilogue to the book with lots of fun insights from Trish and Nate’s point of view–and even a few surprises!
Check out this excerpt–you guys know I save all the really steamy stuff for you!
“Trish,” he groaned again, his arms held tight at his side, his hands fisted. “Look at you. You’re .” His voice shook with raw desire.
And just like that, she felt desirable in spite of her underthings. She walked over to where he stood. The added height of the bed meant that, instead of having to crane her neck up to look at him, she was a few inches taller than he was. She draped her arms around his neck again.
. She hadn’t often felt beautiful. She’d had some people try to compliment her, but the best she usually got was “striking.”
“And you, as I believe I noted before, are incredibly attractive.”
He grinned up at her, the doubt gone from his eyes. “Can I touch you now or are you still seducing me?”
“I didn’t say you couldn’t touch me, did I?”
In response, his hands skimmed up the back of her thighs, over her bottom. He moved deliberately, trailing his fingertips along the waistband of her serviceable panties, over her hips, and along the elastic of her leg bands.
She couldn’t help it. She closed her eyes and let her skin take in his every movement. She tingled under his touch, little shocks of pleasure wherever his fingertips caressed her.
“You are so beautiful, Trish,” he whispered against her chest. Then he pressed his lips against the inner curve of her breast, right above the bra cup. “Let me show you how beautiful you are.”
He turned his head and kissed the other breast as he began to unhook her bra. A moment of panic flashed over her—what was she doing? Having sex with Nate? Was she ?—but then the bra gave and he pulled it off her shoulders and she moved her arms to let it fall helplessly between them and he—and he—
He licked her left nipple like he was licking an ice cream cone. As his tongue worked her into a hard, stiff peak, he glanced up at her. “Watch me,” he ordered and then he closed his lips around her nipple and sucked.
“Nate!” she exclaimed in a whisper at the sudden pressure. She wanted to cry out and scream his name, but she didn’t want to wake the baby. She laced her hands through his hair. “Oh…”
“Good?” he asked, his voice muffled against her skin.
“Yes,” she said. In response, he sucked again, harder. “…” she managed to say again. Her legs started to shake.
One of his hands slid down her back again, tracing her bottom before coming between her legs from behind. The position locked her body to his. Softly—so softly—his fingertips rubbed over the thin fabric of her panties. The sensation of someone that wasn’t her touching her there was so overwhelming that she couldn’t even make a noise.
“Open your legs for me,” he whispered. “Let me show you how beautiful you are.”
Despite the way he had her legs pinned with his arm, she managed to scoot her knees a little further apart without losing her balance.
“Mmm,” Nate hummed as he licked her other nipple. His fingers rubbed in longer strokes, so close to hitting that hot, heavy weight in the front.
So close—but not quite. He was going to drive her mad with lust. Her! Trish Hunter, who had always been above such base things. With Nate’s mouth on her, his fingers against her—
She ground against his fingers as she held his head to her breast. “Nate,” she moaned when his teeth scraped over her nipple. “Oh, …”
WHEW! *fans self* Nate is my geekiest hero yet. I hope you guys like him as much as I do!
