About Red Velvet:

Magic is sacred, but real love is divine.   To save them from the Guillotine a spell is cast, and Marie-Thérèse Charlotte of France, daughter of Marie Antoinette, is changed into an owl, her brother, the young dauphin, into a golden stag. The old gypsy witch who repaid a blood debt by saving their lives, takes the princess’s memories and names her Velvet. For eight years Velvet exists safely wrapped in the spell. On her eighteenth year, rumors of her life reach the ears of King George III. In a bout of fearful madness, he orders the death of the French heirs. When soldiers torch their camp, Velvet and her brother, are forced to run for their lives.   Nora Hardington, a young woman on a mission into the dangerous underbelly of London, finds Velvet wounded and dying. Risking her own life, she rescues Velvet. Together, they enlist the help of the dark stranger sent to carry out the king’s command. As they search for the spell to return her brother’s humanity, Velvet lives all the sides of life she was previously denied.   Her adventures are fraught with assassins, pirates, ancient enchantments, bloody battle, mythical lore, and all manner of dastardly love.

Velvet tried to stand. Fresh, sizzling pain jolted through her, but she did not utter a sound. She reached for the knife in her boot; it hissed when it cleared the sheath. She was outside the pain, there was only focus, movement, and survival—survival most of all. Every sense spiking, Velvet listened to how her mind amplified the surrounding sounds. Screams from the bawdy houses, the pattering feet of beggar boys running for their loot, or their life—and the men, Velvet could hear the men best of all, accelerated heartbeats pounding over short, excited breaths. Nora’s screeching sounds were all that mattered. Her face was turning a mottled shade of purple and there was no time to wait for the ideal moment, time had become a thing they were fast running out of.

Velvet sprang up and buried her knife in the taut neck of Nora’s attacker. The man shrieked, as blood filled his mouth, and the scream turned to a slurry, garbled wail. Nora crumpled to the ground, clawing at her throat, gasping for air. Velvet spun around, instinctively dodging the fist aimed at her face. Her arm moved, this time her knife sunk in the second man’s stomach. She stabbed again and again, short quick jabs that were over almost before he registered them. The man stumbled back—smacked a meaty hand to his bleeding gut—and fell on his backside, then lost consciousness with a groan. Velvet heard a sick crack when his skull hit the stone. In front of them, the first man was on his knees, the gash in his neck spewing obscene amounts of blood. Both the hands he pressed to the wound did nothing to staunch the flow.

I’ve never seen so much blood in my life,” gasped Nora, dragging herself to her knees. “Now I will faint, and who could blame me?” Shaking hands encircling her battered throat, she coughed until tears ran down her cheeks. More hot blood pooled around the man’s knees so the cracks between the stones could not contain it. Crimson liquid bubbled up, rushing toward the lacy hem of Nora’s dress.

Run!” Velvet panted. “Get out of here!” Hand shaking, she lifted the bloody knife, her eyes searching for danger—she found only shadows.

I will do no such thing! Spencer!” wailed Nora. “Spencer!”

Velvet fell. Regardless of how much she wished it was otherwise, darkness had won the battle for her sight—the world faded to black.

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Can I take your jacket?” “Thanks.” Evie shuffled out of the trench while catching last sight of the poor soul struggling to breath as the elevator doors sealed him within. “Is this a bad time?” Jasmine dashed to the closet at the right of the receptionist’s desk, then returned. “You were to see Mr. Rosati— I’m sorry. One moment.” She tapped her headset once more. The atmosphere hummed, conversations intersecting. People went about their business—Jasmine included—as if they hadn’t just witnessed a man getting carted off on a stretcher, as though it was merely another day at the office. Jasmine ended her call. “Sorry about that. My counterpart on twelve is out sick today. His calls are rerouted to me. Now, as I was about to say, I’m afraid Mr. Rosati has taken ill. That was him you saw with the EMTs.” Evie’s eyes bulged. “Oh goodness!” “We’ll get an update soon on his condition, I’m sure. In the meantime, alternative arrangements have been made. Please follow me.” “I can postpone. Clearly, this isn’t a good time.” “I assure you the firm has everything under control.” She extended a hand toward the stairs and started off. Evie kept in close step as they moved through the bustling activity of power-suited professionals and took a set of glossy pine stairs up to the next floor. It was a luxurious suite of spotless glass, high-polished finishes, and rich ivory leather furnishings. The décor said the retainer fee would bite deep into her wallet. If her attorney did his job right, Patrick would be footing the bill. On that note— “Is Mr. Rosati all right?” Jasmine glanced back while never missing a strut. “His assistant will provide an update when it becomes available. With his absence, the senior partners understand the concern you have as well as the rest of Mr. Rosati’s clients when news of his abrupt departure is made known. But no worries. They’ve decided to divide his roster among them.” There was an excited lift in her otherwise monotone voice. “In other words, you’ll get to work with one of the four top legal counsels here. You can’t go wrong; they’re all amazing.” That familiar knot coiled in Evie’s belly. She touched Jasmine’s arm, slowing her determined stride. “Senior partners? Which senior partner?” “I’m not sure. Everything happened so fast. The four are meeting as we speak to decide who gets which case.” Jasmine continued forward. The twelfth floor was even more posh than the one below. Wall upon wall of glass separated spacious executive office suites. They entered a rather large conference room. “Hope you don’t mind; this is the only meeting space unoccupied. It’s been a crazy day. Please have a seat. Can I get you some coffee? Tea?” She gestured to three Keurigs and a host of condiments that lined the credenza on the other side of the room. “No, thank you.” “Good afternoon, Mrs. Powell.” They turned, and Evie’s stomach did yet another roller coaster-quick drop as she stared back into the very eyes she didn’t wish to see. Why did her damn luck always have to misfire? “Afternoon, Mr. Scott.”

Exclusive Excerpt:

I turned around and saw a beautiful brunette with the most stunning green eyes staring at me. Her perfect complexion and killer bod weren’t what captivated me the most. I didn’t need to know a damn thing about her to know I’d follow her mesmerizing eyes anywhere. There was a kindness to them I rarely saw in people around here, or anywhere, for that matter. In a pair of skimpy black shorts and a tight blue tank top that left nothing to the imagination, she squeezed in between Mia and me, flashing a smile that showed off her perfect white teeth. She didn’t seem nearly as wiped out from soccer practice as Mia. Some water droplets trickled down her neck and I almost licked my lips while watching them fall into the curves of her shoulder. I wonder what it would be like to have my tongue travel along that line. How have our paths not crossed until today? Where the hell has this goddess been all my life? My mind ran away with itself. I didn’t know a thing about this chick and she’d only end up in heartbreak for me. She was one of them, so letting my guard down was out of the question—no matter how smoking hot she was. Try as I might on that front, the blood surging through my body settled in my dick. A wily grin fell from her succulent lips. I wasn’t about to let her think she was winning in whatever unspoken chat we were having, so I gave her a panty-dropping smile. She probably thought I’d ask for her number when I finally did speak, but I wanted to make sure she knew I had the upper hand. With her amazing rack, guys more than likely dropped to their knees at the bat of an eye, but I wasn’t about to give in to that impulse. Well, princess, I’m not one of those guys. You’ll have to work a lot harder and I can tell you’re going to enjoy trying. Let the games begin, sweetheart! Her eyes shifted from playful to intense. I raised an eyebrow and ran my tongue across my lips—just to mess with her some more. After she spotted my tongue ring, her knees wobbled and it was clear she was trying damn hard not to clench her thighs together.

He glanced at her. "I don't suppose you could take me," he said, with a hopeful smile.

She felt a jolt of awareness flash through her like an electric shock.

Dimples, she thought absently. They were her downfall.

Jake Reese gave great dimples.

She looked heavenward. "I have an afternoon shift, at my other job," she said, trying to fight the pull of attraction she felt. This guy’s not for you, kiddo.

"You said it's only five minutes away, though," he wheedled.

"What is it with guys trying to get on my good side today?"

He deliberately turned, pointing at his ass. She saw the gaping hole where his pocket used to be. The guy was wearing striped boxers, she noticed. He also had an ass a woman could write odes to, she couldn't help but also notice.

"I don't think I'll survive another round with those women," he said, his eyes imploring.

Damn those dimples.

"Fine,” she said, ignoring the flash of his blue eyes and her corresponding hormonal bump. “As soon as my replacement comes back, I'll..."

"Oh, thank you," Jake said quickly. Before she knew it, he was hugging her.

She was being hugged by Jake Reese, a.k.a. Rick from Mystics, the brooding bad-boy with muscles for miles and a kick-ass Shelby Mustang.

He smelled like expensive cologne, just a splash of it, plus some pure rugged male. Her body tightened in response, her breasts crushed up against the rock-hard wall of his chest.

Oh, my.

Of course, it was at that point that Stan breezed back in, a paper bag of greasy goodness in hand. "Thanks, Hales, I..." he stopped, jaw dropping at the sight in front of him.

Jake pulled back away from Hailey, with a rueful half-smile.

"Well, I got a double burger and fries with a milkshake," Stan said, tongue in cheek. "What goodies did you grab for lunch, girl?"

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Vincent.” “Good evening, Evie.” The deep, rich rumble of his voice was like warm fingers caressing along the nape of her neck. Her entire body suddenly tingled. She grabbed her glass and sucked down every drop. “Evie?” “Um-hum.” “Given what happened today with Patrick, I thought I’d check on you. Are you home?” “I’m in bed. How about you? Are you in bed, Vinny?” She slapped a hand over her mouth. Why did I say that? And why the hell am I talking all low and husky? “Vinny?” He cleared his throat on a soft chuckle. “It’s been a long time since I’ve heard that.” “I-I mean, Vincent.” Shit. He hated the nickname, but she used to call him that in private when…when their hands and mouths touched and tasted, groped and licked. Evie, stop! “Yes, I’m in bed getting work done before I turn in. I wanted to send you some info I pulled together.” “What is it?” “I call it my war sheet—notes I typically write down on the attorney I’m going up against. In this instance, it’s a few bullet points on Patrick’s legal counsel—his strengths, weaknesses, case history, his wins and losses. The guy plays dirty. He’ll take everything he can get for his client down to the floorboards.” “Oh. Okay.” She didn’t know what to say. The act was so like him. “It should be in your inbox now. Anyway, just thought it might help your attorney prepare.” She quickly pulled up her email and opened the document. A few notes? There were two full pages of information. Even lines about Patrick’s actions today at the bakery. Appreciation and most of all, a strong sense of longing—the emotions washed over her, roiling like turbulent waves. She used to say he had the heart of a tiger and the soul of an angel. “Thank you.” “Well, I’ll let you go. Have a good night, Evie.” “You, too. Good night.” But she wasn’t ready to hang up.

The Naughty Pine...

Today we have the release day blitz of Sibylla Matilde’s The Naughty Pine! Check out this gorgeous new romance and be sure to get your copy today!

Title: The Naughty Pine

Author: Sibylla Matilde

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About The Naughty Pine:

On the fourteenth anniversary of my first divorce, I went to a kink club. Thirty-three and no clue who I was. What I wanted out of life. I only knew it was passing me by and I was tired. Tired of surviving the day-to-day. Tired of trying to forgive myself for two failed marriages. Tired of being a single mother with no semblance of a social life, of bending over backwards to be a fitting role model for my teenage daughter. That was, until I stepped foot in The Naughty Pine. I didn’t plan to participate. I only went to appease the dark corners of my curiosity. To see something wild and taboo and full of life. Something sinful to shock the loneliness clean out of my system. Don’t know what I expected, but it sure wasn’t him…

Exclusive Excerpt:

“You and I really need to have a talk,” he quietly stated.   “About what?” I asked, somewhat dazed.   “You and I.”   My heart stopped. In a sudden panic, afraid of what he might say, I clumsily weaved against him and lifted up on my tippy-toes. Clasping my hands against his bearded jaw, I sought his lips. I prayed that his arms would come around me, and I dang near cried when he firmly pulled me tight up against him.   “Där—” he whispered against my lips.   “I don’t want to talk, Jace,” I whispered back. My fingertip trailed down his chest, reaching the edge of his Henley at his waist before dipping up to touch his bare skin. Raking my nails up his torso, I relished in the deep indrawn breath that tore through him. “I just want to pretend you still love me.”   “Honey, I don’t have to pretend.”   “That’s right,” I said against his lips, deliberately misunderstanding. There was simply too much to lose if I believed in him. I’d done it before and it had about killed me. So I chose to take this all as a dream. A fantasy. “Exactly, just like that.”   


About Sibylla Matilde:

Sibylla Matilde grew up on the back of a horse exploring in the mountain valleys of Southwest Montana. She attended a two-room schoolhouse 1st through 6th grade where she had same teacher the whole time. At the age of 12, Siby discovered historical romance, devouring the work of Jude Devereaux, Lisa Kleypas, and Karen Robards. She began writing in 2013 with her debut novel, Little Conversations, and self-published ten works over the next three years. She took a few years off to deal with life (it proved very difficult to move on from her Bangin’ Mofos…they were a blast to write), but is back at the keyboard with new steamy stories brewing in her naughty little brain. Music is her emotional trigger. Growing up with a Wagnarian-opera-loving mother, Sibylla loves music that digs deep into her soul and covers her with goosebumps. The soundtrack to her life includes different genres and generations, but her favorites include Thirty Seconds to Mars (she’s a bit obsessive about Jared Leto, actually), Kings of Leon, The Killers, My Chemical Romance, and many other artists and bands. Her inspiration playlists on Spotify truly drive her writing, and she loves to share her eclectic taste with anyone who will listen. Siby strives to write books that make the reader bask in the sweet glow of new love, burn hot with a passionate intensity, and day drink from gut-wrenching heartache. Her characters are not world-famous rock stars or billionaires, rather every-day small-town people experiencing their own extraordinary romantic adventures in the Rocky Mountains she calls home. Siby loves to hear from fans and can be reached at

Savaged Illusions...

Today we have the blog tour of Jennifer Lyon’s Savaged Illusions: The Complete Series! Check out this gorgeous romance series and be sure to get your copy today!

Title: Savaged Illusions: The Complete Series

Author: Jennifer Lyon

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Savaged Illusions: The Complete Series:

Justice Cade is leading his rock band to superstardom, but when he falls in love with Liza Cade, will her secrets destroy them all?

Book one, SAVAGED DREAMS Ambitious and sexy lead singer Justice Cade has one goal—to take his band, Savaged Illusions, to international rock star fame. But when the fiery college-intern Liza Glasner captures his heart, he soon learns she has a dark secret that compels her to avoid the limelight. The revelation of Liza’s true identity forces Justice to choose between the woman he loves and the stardom he craves. The wrong choice could be deadly. Book two, SAVAGED VOWS Dating a rock star nearly got Liza killed. Now that the world knows her true identity, danger stalks her relentlessly. But she loves Justice too much to leave him. A surprise pregnancy leads to a secret marriage and festering doubts. Justice struggles to balance the wife he loves, impending fatherhood, and the battle to take his band to stardom. As he reaches the very pinnacle of success, secrets and betrayals explode in a heartbreaking twist that threatens to rip Justice and Liza apart forever. Book three, SAVAGED DEVOTION Losing Liza taught Justice that love is more important than fame. He risks everything to win her back, and he’ll stop at nothing to keep her safe. Justice’s fierce devotion helps Liza recover from a devastating loss and grow strong enough to stop hiding in the shadows. Together, Justice and Liza burst onto the world stage to face down the man who tormented her for a decade. Will their love triumph or will Liza’s old enemy tear them apart in the most permanent way possible—death?   


I get it. So how about Friday night?”

She hesitated. “I kind of have a commitment then too. But, um, you could come along. It’s dinner with my roommate, Emily, and her boyfriend, Ben. We meet at Wylie’s.” Would he want to go?

He didn’t even hesitate. “It’s a date. I’d like to meet them.”

A huge smile erupted on her face. “Emily’s bugging me about meeting you.”

His eyes crinkled at the edges. “Wants to check me out, huh? Make sure I’m good enough?”

She started to say no, but why lie? “Maybe a little. But she’s nice if she likes you.”

And if she doesn’t?”

She thought of Emily when she’d found out Dillion broke up with her and made her that ugly offer. “How fast can you run?”

That bad?”

I sort of had to hide her car keys to keep her from going after Dillion. I put them in the freezer. By the time she found them, she got sidetracked by ice cream.”

He dropped his forehead to hers, laughing. “I think I like her already. Everyone needs a friend like that.”

Pleasure warmed her, and she got hotter when he kissed her again.

Liza finally came up for air. “Thought you had a meeting? You know, becoming famous and all?”

Color had darkened his face, and he narrowed his eyes. “You’re a dangerous distraction, Glasner.” He opened her car door. “Go before we both forget we have places to be.”

Good luck in your meeting. If Christine’s what you want in a manager, I hope she’ll sign you.”

His eyes hardened with ambition. “She’s a shark, exactly what we want. She’ll make signing us contingent on winning though, to be sure she gets at least some income. This is just a prelim to discuss a potential business plan and strategies. We have to win.”

As she drove away, the warmth of Justice’s touch faded beneath the memory of his fierce drive. He’d told her what he wanted.


He was living in the spotlight. How long did Liza think she could hang around in that glow and not have it come out who she was? Then it’d all start again, the media scrutiny, the terrible things said about her. Her family would be furious.

She gripped the steering wheel tighter as she headed toward campus.

She didn’t want the fame part of Justice, she just wanted the man for as long as it lasted. Because one way or another, fame and stardom would pull him away.

It always did.

She just hoped her life, and that of her family, didn’t end up as collateral damage.

Honey Girl...

Publication Date: February 23, 2021

Publisher: Park Row Books

Book Summary:

HONEY GIRL (Park Row Books; February 23, 2021; $17.99) by Morgan Rogers is a stunning #ownvoices debut, a charming, lyrical, and introspective romantic coming-of-age story about Grace Porter – millennial, Black woman, astronomy Ph.D. – who wakes up after a wild night in Vegas married to a woman she doesn’t know.

Strait-laced and structured all her life, Porter now faces life without a plan for the first time ever. Between her disappointed military father, the competitive job market, and a consuming sense of aimlessness, finding and falling in love with her wife across the country seems to be the only right answer. But Porter’s problems are just as big in Brooklyn as they are anywhere else, and she realizes she’s going to have to face adulthood whether she’s ready or not.

Grace wakes up slow like molasses. The only difference is molasses is sweet, and this—the dry mouth and the pounding headache—is sour. She wakes up to the blinding desert sun, to heat that infiltrates the windows and warms her brown skin, even in late March.

Her alarm buzzes as the champagne-bubble dream pops.

Grace wakes in Las Vegas instead of her apartment in Portland, and she groans.

She’s still in last night’s clothes, ripped high-waisted jeans and a cropped, white BRIDE t-shirt she didn’t pack. The bed is warm, which isn’t surprising. But as Grace moves, shifts and tries to remember how to work her limbs, she notices it’s a different kind of warm. The bed, the covers, the smooth cotton pillowcase beside her, is body-warm. Sleep-warm.

The hotel bed smells like sea-salt and spell herbs. The kind people cut up and put in tea, in bottles, soaking into oil and sealed with a little chant. It smells like kitchen magic.

She finds the will to roll over into the warm patch. Her memories begin to trickle in from the night before like a movie in rewind. There were bright lights and too-sweet drinks and one club after another. There was a girl with rose-pink cheeks and pitch-black hair and, yes, sea-salt and sage behind her ears and over the soft, veiny parts of her wrists. Her name clings to the tip of Grace’s tongue but does not pull free.

The movie in Grace’s head fast-forwards. The girl’s hand stayed clutched in hers for the rest of the night. Her mouth was pretty pink. She clung to Grace’s elbow and whispered, “Stay with me,” when Agnes and Ximena decided to go back to the hotel.

Stay with me, she said, and Grace did. Follow me, she said, like Grace was used to doing. Follow your alarm. Follow your schedule. Follow your rubric. Follow your graduation plan. Follow a salt and sage girl through a city of lights and find yourself at the steps of a church.

Maybe it wasn’t a church. It didn’t seem like one. A place with fake flowers and red carpet and a man in a white suit. A fake priest. Two girls giggled through champagne bubbles and said yes. Grace covers her eyes and sees it play out.

Jesus,” she mutters, sitting up suddenly and clutching the sheets to keep herself steady.

She gets up, knees wobbling. “Get it together, Grace Porter.” Her throat is dry and her tongue sticks to the roof of her mouth. “You are hungover. Whatever you think happened, didn’t happen.” She looks down at her t-shirt and lets out a shaky screech into her palms. “It couldn’t have happened, because you are smart, and organized, and careful. None of those things would lead to a wedding. A wedding!”

Didn’t happen,” she murmurs, trying to make up the bed. It’s a fruitless task, but making up the bed makes sense, and everything else doesn’t. She pulls at the sheets, and three things float to the floor like feathers.

A piece of hotel-branded memo paper. A business card. A photograph.

Grace picks up the glossy photograph first. It is perfectly rectangular, like someone took the time to cut it carefully with scissors.

In it, the plastic church from her blurry memories. The church with its wine-colored carpet and fake flowers. There is no Elvis at this wedding, but there is a man, a fake priest, with slicked back hair and rhinestones around his eyes.

In it, Grace is tall and brown and narrow, and her gold, spiraling curls hang past her shoulders. She is smiling bright. It makes her face hurt now, to know she can smile like that, can be that happy surrounded by things she cannot remember.

Across from her, their hands intertwined, is the girl. In the picture, her cheeks are just as rose-pink. Her hair is just as pitch-black as an empty night sky. She is smiling, much like Grace is smiling. On her left hand, a black ring encircles her finger, the one meant for ceremonies like this.

Grace, hungover and wary of this new reality, lifts her own left hand. There, on the same finger, a gold ring. This part evaded her memories, forever lost in sticky-sweet alcohol. But there is it, a ring. A permanent and binding and claiming ring.

“What the hell did you do, Porter?” she says, tracing it around her finger.

She picks up the business card, smaller and somehow more intimate, next. It smells like the right side of the bed. Sea salt. Sage. Crushed herbs. Star anise. It is a good smell.

On the front, a simple title:


brooklyn’s late night show for lonely creatures

& the supernatural. Sometimes both.

99.7 FM

She picks up the hotel stationery. The cramped writing is barely legible, like it was written in a hurry.

I know who I am, but who are you? I woke up during the sunrise, and your hair and your skin and the freckles on your nose glowed like gold. Honey-gold. I think you are my wife, and I will call you Honey Girl. Consider this a calling card, if you ever need a—I don’t know how these things work. A friend? A—

Wife, it says, but crossed out.

A partner. Or. I don’t know. I have to go. But I think I had fun, and I think I was happy. I don’t think I would get married if I wasn’t. I hope you were, too.

What is it they say? What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas? Well, I can’t stay.

Maybe one day you’ll come find me, Honey Girl. Until then, you can follow the sound of my voice. Are you listening?

Anna Castor is taking you to snowy Colorado with her brand new Winter Peaks series! If you love strong heroines and steamy small town romances sprinkled with just the right amount of humor, you don't want to miss out on ADAM – start reading it with KindleUnlimited!

About ADAM

If Caitlin Ryan had known Pops’ grandsons in Colorado were freaking hot with an equal amount of irritating traits, she’d picked another place to overthink her life. Adam Mills, the oldest brother of the family that agreed to take her in, has an unnerving sexy confidence and overall hotness. And the former snowboard star has his eyes set on her.

As an Olympic gold medalist on the half-pipe, Adam Mills has seen and done it all before. He's finally ready to give his heart to a woman and settle down. But can Adam win over Caitlin's heart?

Welcome to Winter Peaks, Colorado! A small tourist town where all year round, people come and go to enjoy the mountains. But the families of the Winter Peaks series have made the town their home.

ღ Small town romance ღ Strong heroine & steamy alpha man ღ Funny, relatable family members

ADAM is book one in the Winter Peaks series about the ups and downs of several families in a small tourist town in Colorado. The series is a spin-off of the sweet and sexy Lucky Irish series, about several close-knit families in Austin, Texas.

Each book is an interconnected standalone. As we read a new sexy romance, we can also catch up with favorite characters throughout the series.

Although the heroine, Caitlin, comes from the Lucky Irish series, it's not required to read those books first.

“Here, let me help you.” Adam leaned over her shoulder and secured her. His closeness did wonders for her nerves. “We can go together? Maybe that would make you more comfortable?”

She shot a glance at the zipline. “Can we?”

“Sure.” Adam made work of clasping their clips to the next lanyard. He stepped to the end of the platform, turned around and squatted with his ass partially hanging over the platform.

“Hop on,” he said on a wink.

“Oh, my God. You can’t be serious?”

“Yeah, Cait, I am. If you want to go together, you must straddle me.”

Her eyes widened. Adam laughed and said, “Ah, come on. Bring those pretty titties to my face.”

She busted out laughing at his way with words. “Geez. Such a sweet talker.”

He joined her laugh and after a beat he said, “I promise you’ll enjoy the ride…”

“I’m going to hop on, just to shut you up.”

Caitlin straddled his tree trunk thighs and held herself stiffly in an upright position.

With one hand, he swooped her closer to him. So close, she felt him. There.

Her body tingled all over and her palms got sweaty again.

His breath caressed her throat. Caitlin almost let a moan slip from her mouth. She quickly coughed to cover the sound.

“Just sit back and relax. Let me do all the work,” he said with the biggest grin she’d seen.

“I bet you say that to all the girls,” she laughed, but the hint of truth to those words also pained her.
