The Weekend Dirty Dozen.
He lifted his chocolate gaze before he blew softly over the sensitive folds, so eager for his kiss.
Shifting her hips, she instinctively reached for the man she’d secretly loved for too long. His wicked smile flashed, but he did not move closer. “Just killing time, or are you planning to do something while you’re down there, crazy man?”
“Thinking about it.” His grin broadened and his fingers feathered over her heated skin, teasing but never really touching. “Why? Did you have something in mind?”
She groaned. If he didn’t touch her soon, she’d lose it before they even began. “You were showing me why you want me, remember?”
“I was, wasn’t I?”
Distrustful of life and love, Gabriel Rivers looks for a fight everywhere he goes, but he prefers Micki’s Bar where the tequila is aged and the dumb asses are plentiful. The eye candy provided by the bar owner is simply a distracting bonus that soothes the ever present rage. Mick’s curves and snarky comments offer a contentment, longed for yet forbidden.
For five years Michaela Neal has watched her friend attempt to self-destruct, yanking his gorgeous butt from the fire and bandaging his wounds as needed. When she finally gives into her desires and offers herself to Gabe’s dark-eyes and rough hands, she never expects him to hurt her despite his cynical outlook.
Pain and misunderstanding drive a wedge between Gabe and the one perfect thing in his life. Can he summon the courage to cast off wrath’s comforting cloak and embrace happiness before fate takes away his options?
I have joined the Weekend Dirty Dozen on Facebook. What does that mean exactly? Well, a group of authors will post a dozen sentences from either a work in progress or a published piece for your enjoyment each week. The Weekend Dozen will remain on the individual author's blogs from Friday through Sunday, so be sure to check them all out. You should be able to read back though my past weeks once I get rolling as I never remember to delete anything. Today's entry is 12 lines from Untamable - a hot erotic cowboy tale of love lost to misunderstanding and of course regained - it is romance after all. We assume the HEA but the fun comes in the ride and who better to ride with than a bronco buster? Yee-haw and saddle up!
“Stop running from me, Lily.” His beautiful amber eyes
almost glowed as he closed in. His chest brushed against hers. Heat radiated from
him as it always did, her personal heater on acold winter day. Her personal hell when she tried toresist him.
“Let me go.”
“No. We’re done doing things your way.”
A delicious shiver shimmied down her back at his commanding
tone. If only she could turn everything over to him. If only things were that easy.
I love the paranormal world. This shifter sinsation first caught my attention by the incredible hotness that was poured out on the first page. I was hooked and knew this was my kind of book! I love stories that drop you right in on the action…Literally!!!
Kya's King is one primal read. From the very first page you are planted right into the action. Kya and Ja are wonderfully layered characters and I enjoyed witnessing their reactions to everything they encountered. I loved the fact that she was so very naïve yet so incredibly strong and determined. Ja is such a fantastically conflicted hero, caught between his duty and his desires. He’s all sexy alpha-male in big kitty form. The supporting characters were fantastic and I cannot wait to see them get their own stories. I particularly enjoyed Kya’s extended family. The overall tone of this story is so animalistic and natural almost raw in some of its brutal moments. I was fascinated by the world this author created.
