Thanks for letting me hang out here today, Shelli!
On June 11th, Samhain Publishing is going to deliver five Scorching Summer romances to help you kick your summer off right! I’m so excited to be a part of the party with Shelli, Mari Carr, Joely Sue Burkhart and Harper Fox!
She’s the One is extra exciting because it starts a new sexy contemporary series for me! Counting on Love is a spin-off series from my Bradford series and I’m really having fun getting to know these new people while still visiting some of my favorite old friends. She’s the One will be followed by It Takes Two in September and Best of Three in November with books four and five coming in 2014! So I hope that you’ll mark your calendars for all of the hot reads coming your way June 11th and that you’ll get to know and love Ryan and Amanda in She’s the One!
She’s the One
Counting on Love, Book 1
Sometimes you see love clearly. And sometimes it has to smack you in the face.
When a stranger walks up and punches him, Ryan Kaye assumes there’s a good reason. But he’s stunned to learn it’s over a one-night stand that never happened —with his friend’s sister, straight-laced Amanda Dixon. When Ryan confronts her about the lie, Amanda apologizes, but Ryan realizes he doesn’t want her to be sorry…he wants the night they supposedly spent together.
Amanda’s not looking to add anyone to her long list of commitments, so she was only trying to let a nice guy down easy by telling him a fling with Ryan broke her heart. So what if the fling only happened in her dreams? But when Ryan Kaye tempts her with the chance to go crazy and fulfill a few fantasies, she can’t resist. Thank goodness one night isn’t enough time to fall in love…
Warning: Contains a hot paramedic who knows how to get a girl to let her hair down, a girl who thinks she prefers her hair up, some naughty laser tag, some naughty role-playing and a lot of falling in love.
“What the…” His gaze roamed over her from head to toe and back again. Twice. The second time slower. “Not that I’m complainin’, but honey, you went to a lot of work considering I’m gonna be messing you up real soon.”
She sucked in a quick breath. Yep, not meeting him at the room had been a really good idea.
“Later.” She grabbed his hand. “Let’s go have some fun.”
“Uh.” Ryan didn’t move as she started for the doors. “Fun’s exactly what I have in mind.”
She looked back at him. He honestly looked confused. She turned to face him. “Fun like dancing and drinking and making out?”
“Fun like stripping you out of that thing and licking you from toes to nose.”
That wave of heat rippled through her again. They were going to do that. Exactly that. But later.
“We’re so on the same page there, Ryan.”
“Well, the licking is best done on a horizontal surface, preferably one with feather pillows and maid service to worry about cleaning up the whipped cream.”
She smiled in spite of suddenly wanting to do some licking of her own. “That is the plan. I swear.”
“Then let’s go this way.” He inclined his head toward the elevators and tugged on her hand.
“Ryan, we’ll never leave if we go up there now.”
“That’s kind of the idea.” He frowned. “Isn’t it?”
“Well, yeah, after we go out.” She frowned too. Why was he frowning?
“Go out? Go out where?”
She frowned harder. “Out. Anywhere fun. I thought maybe we’d go to Frigid.” Frigid was hands-down the hottest club in the city. And it didn’t get its reputation from the music, the drinks or the people who showed up.
“Frigid?” he repeated. “Are you kidding?”
“No.” She stepped close. “Ryan, this is my night to be wild, to do all the things that make my blood hot and my heart pound. You are on that list too, trust me. But I have twenty-four hours and I want to live it up.”
