Excerpt:

So, you really have no intention of giving me my birthday present?”

Not really. This one needs to be savored.”

Bouncey, bouncey. “Besides, your mom would kill me if I told.”

Uh-oh. My radar surfaced like a periscope on a Dclass nuclear submarine armed with twenty deadly missiles. This would not do. No siree. Sometimes, Mom’s surprises were incredibly unique. Translated, this meant on occasion her presents were:

Butt ugly
Not needed
Childish


I didn’t want to sound completely ungrateful about Mom’s gifts. In truth, I very much appreciated everything she gave me. I really struggled with keeping the unusual presents and then donating them to a charity when they weren’t used. Most had been stashed on the top shelf of my closet in case she visited and made inquiries about them.

When Joe offers to remodel her father’s den, Lexi jumps at the chance to erase sad memories and become better acquainted with her gorgeous handyman. Even as the charms of Glenmore draw her in, a series of break-ins at her father’s house make her fear for her safety. Is the intruder searching for something other than valuables? And how determined is the culprit? Lexi finds her fragile happiness at risk, including her newfound love for Joe Manning.

Excerpt:

He looked over volume after volume. “Some of these look like they might be first editions.”

“Most likely. Dad was quite a collector. Do you read?”

“Yeah, some.” He tapped on the cherry wood shelves and then he focused on the desk. Rounding it, he took a seat. “This is the drawer that was broken into?” He reached down to pull open the cracked drawer. “Doesn’t look like there was too much damage. It could be repaired.”

“It doesn’t matter. I’m going to throw it out anyway.”

His head snapped up. “What? Why?”

“Because I hate it.” She shivered, hugging herself. “I hate this whole room.”

He frowned. “But this is a great desk. The drawer could be repaired or replaced. Be a shame to throw it out.”

When she spoke, her voice was quiet. “If you want it, it’s yours.” She swiveled on the ball of her foot and walked away.

He gazed at the empty doorway for a long while, confused. What the hell? Then it hit him. Duh. I’m an idiot.

She was in the kitchen, cleaning up. It didn’t take her long— two plates in the dishwasher and paper cartons in the garbage. She sprayed the counter and wiped it clean with paper towels.

“Lexi, is the study where your brother died?” He shifted, uncomfortable, barely able to say the words.

When she turned to face him, her eyes were bright. “Yes.”

BUY:

Synopsis: It was meant to be a one-night stand. One wicked night with an irresistibly sexy passenger. That’s all Air Marshal Gage Michaels can afford–his career comes before everything else. Too bad the snowpocalpyse of the century has different plans for him and Abby Winters. Before the night’s over, they find themselves snowed in at the most luxurious hotel in the city.Abby’s scouting job of a NYC penthouse should be quick, simple, and definitely shouldn’t include a sexy-as-hell man messing up the 3000 count sheets that will be featured in her company’s next blockbuster hit. Not when she’s up for a promotion that could skyrocket her entire career in the film industry. Still, she can’t refuse what the weather gods so obviously want her to have. She’ll give in, just this once. Leaving is tougher than either of them could have imagined. But they’re two people who have nothing in common, living on opposite coasts. There’s no way they can ever be together. Right? goodreads-badge-add-38px


Excerpt:


The entirety of his body was on full display except for the patch of soap and dark water pooling below his waist. Where his hand was. Wrapped around his cock. Moving up and down in slow, deliberate movements.
Abby’s breath caught in her throat as she regarded him. His strong hand, the one that wasn’t servicing himself, gripped the side of the white porcelain tub, and his teeth grazed his bottom lip. He looked lost in the moment, his eyes squeezed shut. A stuttered breath flew from his mouth as he uttered, “Fuck.”
She cleared her throat, and Gage opened his eyes, a smile playing at his lips. “I was wondering when you were coming to join me. Ready to help me out?” He didn’t bother to stop rubbing himself, his hands making a slick wet sound as it slid through the water. Something about the lewd gesture sent a crack of heat splintering straight through her bones.
