We’re about two weeks away from the release of Good Girls Don’t, the second book in the Everly Brothers series! I’m super excited for this book. It was one of my favorites to write, and James is one of my yummiest heroes. Today I thought I’d include a little excerpt for your reading pleasure!
Since confessing her family troubles to him was the last thing she planned to do, she forced a pleasant expression onto her face and rose to stalk toward the door. “I certainly appreciate the business advice, but you’ll understand if I rely on my own instincts when deciding what to do with my firm.”
When she motioned toward the exit, James took her not so subtle hint. He stood and adjusted the lapels on his jacket and, with a polite smile, headed toward the door. But he veered before crossing the threshold, heading instead toward her.
She backpedaled at the look of serious intent on his face. Her back hit a hard surface, and an instant later, his hands braced the wall on either side of her, effectively trapping her in.
“What are you—”
His head lowered to her ear. “I can’t stop thinking about last night.”
A rush of heat flooded her body.
“The feel of your skin,” he murmured, his hot breath kissing her ear. “Your mouthwatering taste.”
Her chest heaved at the imagery his words elicited. His arousing, masculine scent enveloped her, all but hijacking her senses. That must be why she just stood there, resting her head back against the wall, when she should be pushing him away.
“You can’t stop thinking about it either, can you?”
She summoned the courage to lift her hands to his chest. But instead of pushing him away, they just rested there, drinking in his heat. Traitorous hands.
“Stop,” she whispered.
Instead of obeying, he pressed a soft kiss to the pulse beating in her neck. His right hand moved off the wall and slid down the side of her body. She might as well have been naked. His molten touch seared through the thin fabric of her suit.
“James,” she pleaded. Her body refused to obey her commands. Instead of shoving him back, her fingers dug into his chest through his shirt.
“When I was inside you, all I could think about was how amazing you felt.” His hand trailed down to the hem of her skirt and then he was sliding the tight fabric upward, stopping only when it was high enough to reveal her black satin panties. “Like liquid fire, burning me up from the inside.”
Lyssa whimpered when his fingers stroked her through her underwear.
“Remember that, baby?” He nipped at her ear. “How it felt to have me inside you?”
How could she not, especially when her body was still sore from their lovemaking?
Update: The contest is now closed and the winner is Sharon Stogner! Congrats Sharon, and thanks to everyone for participating!
Hello and welcome to the Get Wicked With Entangled Blog Hop!
I’ve been obsessed with the paranormal since I was a little girl. While many of my friends were interested in being spooked every Halloween, I was more drawn to the romantic aspects of the paranormal. Remember The Mummy with Brendan Frasier? It’s still one of my favorite movies to this day. The villain may have been a killer mummy, but everything he did, he did for love. *sigh* Yes, I’m a true sucker for romance.
For this stop, I’m giving away an ecopy of Blood of the Demon, the first book in my Demons of Infernum series. Check it out below, click on the Rafflecopter link to enter, and then hop to the rest of the blogs!
Keegan lives to exact revenge on the evil demon who sired and abused him. When his father devises a plan to bring on the apocalypse, he and his three half-brothers, interdimensional bounty hunters for the Elden Council, are charged with capturing and delivering their father for punishment.
Art gallery owner Brynn Meyers has no idea that her ability to read memories embedded in objects and drain people of their life force means she has demon ancestry. Unfortunately for Brynn, she’s also the key to raising an ancient zombie army, which puts her on every demon’s Most Wanted List.
And no one wants her more than Keegan’s father.
Keegan must protect Brynn from his father by any means necessary, but he’ll have to learn to harness the other half of his genetics—the far deadlier, uncontrollable half—when he starts to fall for the one woman standing between him and the vengeance he so desperately seeks. The one woman he’ll never be able to resist.

Happy Friday, everyone! To take you into the weekend, here’s a snippet from Wild Girls Rule:
When she turned back around, she brushed her long, loose hair off her shoulders, the gesture betraying her sudden nervousness. Something about that was truly adorable. They’d been together more times than he could count by now, but it was endearing that there was still a circumstance in which she could be nervous.
“Come here,” he murmured.
A pink flush rose in her cheeks as she walked toward him. But then her eyes gave that familiar devilish glint he’d become so accustomed to these past few weeks, and her lips curved into a smile. “Did you need something else, Mr. Everly?”
Andrew started to frown at her formality, but then he caught on. Blame his mental sluggishness on the hard-on that prevented him from thinking clearly. “You wanna play games?”
She cocked her head to the side, furrowing her brow as if confused by his statement. “I just want to make sure I please my boss.”
“Yeah, I’ll bet,” he murmured. Hailey might be a lot of things, but timid wasn’t one of them, and that’s exactly what she sounded like right now. To his surprise, her little game made him hot under the collar.
Hailey approached his desk, her fingers trailing suggestively along the edge of the wood. He stifled a groan at the illicit images her soft touch sparked. If anyone had ever told him he’d get turned on by watching a woman stroke an inanimate object, he would’ve laughed his brains out. Yet here he was…aroused beyond belief.
“What do you need, sir?” she asked, her voice a breathy whisper that made his dick twitch in his pants.
He pushed back slightly from his desk, splaying his legs out. “I need you to come here.”
Scraping her teeth along her bottom lip, she obeyed, stepping over his leg so she stood within the cocoon of his body. She leaned her pert little ass on the side of his desk, allowing him just the slightest peek up her skirt, and gave him a shy look. “Better?”
“Much,” he rumbled.
“Now what would you like, sir?”
He didn’t say anything, mostly because this game of hers had excited him even more than he could’ve imagined, and he was afraid his voice would come out a squeak. Reaching forward, he gave the knot at her waist a tug. It unraveled, the silky fabric coming undone with agonizing slowness.
I’m knee deep in working on getting Angel’s Redemption ready for release (and, ooh, it has a love triangle!), so I’ll keep this week’s post short and sweet. I’ve been watching Sleepy Hollow now that it’s back on. Man, I love that show! Crane is my new imaginary boyfriend, hehe.
It’s interesting to see Katrina in the picture, but am I the only one thinking there’s going to be a love triangle going on? Lol…I know I’m not.
I think the chemistry between Abby and Crane is pretty great, so it would be fun to see a little something develop there. I guess we’ll see what happens!
