Friday Feature: Rocky Mountain Desire

By Nicole

Do you like sexy cowboys who fall in love with their ex girlfriend’s little sister?? If so, you must read ROCKY MOUNTAIN DESIRE.



She leaned closer and rubbed her cheek against his, sighing with satisfaction as she pulled back. The second time she swung forward she pressed her lips to his, soft, fleeting. She’d planted her palms against his collarbone and slipped them down his torso as she spoke.

“I like the way you smile at me. Like you’re constantly surprised that I’m there beside you and that me being there is a good thing. The way you smell—hmmm—totally turns me on. I snuck that spare T-shirt of yours upstairs the other day after you’d taken it off helping move the extra shelves into the quilt shop.”

“I wondered where that had gone.”

Hope slipped her palms around his lower back then sank her nails in deep as she pulled forward. “The way your voice buzzes against my skin when you whisper, like in the movie theater—it’s this gravelly layer of sensation that trickles over me and makes me all achy inside.”

Matt was less and less worried about the reason that had brought her storming through the door and more sure that what was about to happen had been too long in coming.

She covered his jean-enclosed cock with her hand, palm cupping his ready erection. “I want to have sex because you’ve been haunting my dreams for far too long, and I want to have something else of you to enjoy, more than your laugh or the way you try to save me from myself.”

Feature Friday: Love is a Battlefield

By Nicole

Do you love the best friend’s little sister trope? How about a sexy romance? If so, you need to read LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD.

Sudden warmth rushed through her at his absolute attention. Fine. It was obvious she wasn’t going to be able to change his mind. “Then here’s my counteroffer. You talk to Parker, and I get to be in charge.”

A snort of disbelief escaped him. “Right. Like that’s ever going to happen. Sorry, Candy Cane, but I’m not the type to jump if you start issuing orders.”

Stubborn ass. He wasn’t lying, but then, she already knew ways to make him burn. “You expect to call all the shots? Like that’s ever going to happen,” she echoed his words. “Or, maybe in the bedroom. If you’re any good.”

That intense heat was back in his eyes. Nuclear destruction in three, two, one…

“Am I any good in the bedroom? I don’t know, Pepper. You tell me. Am I a decent kisser?” He paused, just long enough for her to remember the devastation his lips had caused. “Now imagine my mouth all over your body. On the curve of your neck, on your breasts. Dropping over the smooth slope of your belly until I’m between your legs, kissing you until you can’t breathe without gasping my name.”

A whimper snuck out before she could stop it.

He cupped her face again, stroking his thumb over her cheek. “Stop driving us both mad and get in the house. I’ll give you a call tomorrow.”

Pepper didn’t tease for another kiss because she didn’t think she could take it, not without changing her mind and begging him to change his. She got out of the car and headed to the house.

All the time intensely aware that Jack was watching her.
