Curvaceous & Captivating, oh so alpha

Hmm, Teaser Wednesday? Do you think that can be a thing for those of us who are a day behind? Doesn’t have quite the same ring to it!

I’ve never thought I was good at writing alpha males. They intimidate me a bit, and no matter how sexy they are, I’m not sure I could handle one. But Ethan was a lot of fun to write. He was definitely alpha, but he had his sweet side. That side that reminded you that he was a good guy beneath it all. But he had his moments!

Excerpt from Curvaceous & Captivating

Before I made it back to the kitchen, Ethan’s arms were around me. His lips found my neck the same moment his hands found my breasts. I paused, unable to keep moving as he tantalized me. His tongue brushed the edge of my ear then dipped inside. His fingers tweaked my nipples. The full effect made my knees weak. I clutched the island for support, giving Ethan an opportunity to make me even more insane.

“Jesus, Olivia, I need you,” he growled.

One hand slid down my belly, fisting the gauzy fabric at my hip.

“Please, Ethan,” I whispered.

He pushed us forward, moving toward my bedroom. Inside, he slapped the wall, lighting up the room. I slapped the light off and he pulled back.

“Lights on.”

I shook my head.

“Yes,” he growled, turning the lights on again. “I need to see you.”

The intensity in his eyes rose goosebumps over my entire skin. Ethan pulled me away from the light switch, and I let him. He didn’t make a move to close the door, which I was grateful for, and dragged me toward the bed.

Ethan sat on the edge of my bed, his large body making my queen mattress seem tiny. He moved me between his legs and looked up at me. “You’re captivating. Every time I see you, there’s nothing else in the world.”

I felt heat rise to my cheeks. Bill had never complimented me. I never felt beautiful or special in his eyes. More like a duty, something he had to do. Ethan made me feel like I was the sexiest woman he’d ever seen.

Curvaceous & Captivating, release day

A year ago, Olivia didn’t exist. She was someone who was never even a little bit in my mind. It’s hard to imagine that time because she’s so real to me now.

I love Olivia. She’s a single mom with a lot of struggles I think all parents can understand. She has to put her kids first, but she’s spent so long neglecting herself that she can’t resist Ethan when he wants to take care of her. Of course, she’s a mom, and she’s more than happy to take care of him, too…

Excerpt from Curvaceous & Captivating

“I made food. Want me to bring you a plate?”

I shook my head. “I’ll get it in a little bit.”

He stood anyway. When he came back, he had a plate with rice, chicken, and a mix of vegetables. “You need your energy.” He set a glass of water next to me and kissed the side of my head.

Tears sprung to my eyes. I tried to tell myself it was just because I was tired, but that wasn’t the whole story. I was touched. No one ever took care of me. Just did something and let me enjoy it without an ulterior motive. It was humbling, and amazing.

I ate silently while Ethan watched tv. When I was done, he took my plate back to the kitchen, then came back in and took my hand, pulling me to my feet. “Time to relax. Come on.”

He led me to my bedroom, and I protested. “I’m sorry, but I’m not really in the mood right now. I know that’s a cop-out, but it’s also very true.”

Ethan shook his head. “I’m not trying to get you into bed. Not that I would pass up the chance, but no. I ran you a bath.”

“What?”

“I figured you could use it after the afternoon you’ve had. I’ll listen for the kids and go see them if they get up. If you’re okay with it.”

I nodded and leaned in to him. “I don’t know how I got so lucky, but you’re amazing. Thank you.”

“Being a good mom is hard work. I’ve seen that every time I’ve seen you with them. They’re great kids, but that’s because you’re a great mom.”

Tears welled up again. “Thank you.”

He kissed me softly. “You’re welcome. Now go soak. Take your time. I’ll be here when you get out.”

I nodded and watched as he walked away, giving me privacy I didn’t expect. I stripped my clothes off then sunk into the deep bathtub, the hot water reaching my throat.

It was heavenly.

Excerpt from Curvaceous & Captivating

“Close the door, Olivia.”

Huh? “Why?”

“Because I don’t want your neighbors to see what I’m going to do next.”

Oh. Yeah.

He didn’t wait for me to move, just yanked me away from the door and kicked it closed. In another instant, My back was pressed to the cool wood and Ethan was pressed to my front.

“If you don’t want this, Olivia, stop me now. Because I’m not sure I’ll be able to once I have a taste of you.”

“I’m not sleeping with you tonight,” I stammered, knowing I needed to put it out there ahead of time. Every time he was close, my body begged for it. For him. But when I moved away, my head cleared and I knew it was too soon. I wasn’t that kind of person. I hadn’t ever been. And with two kids and one non-existent father, I wasn’t taking any more chances.

Ethan’s lips tilted up at the edges. “Good to know, but I wasn’t going to ask.”

He didn’t give me a chance to ask what he meant by that before he sealed his lips to mine. Dear Lord, just a brush and I was gone. The stubble on his upper lip grated at my skin, and my mind immediately pushed him between my legs, wishing I could feel him there.

His tongue grazed my lips and was gone before I could open for him. He kissed his way from one side of my mouth to the other, his tongue darting out and teasing me as he tortured me with kisses that were so much sweeter than the man giving them.

When I clutched his head and held him still so I could kiss him, he chuckled against my lips. I pulled back and shot him a glare, then turned to leave. I was not about to be made fun of during a kiss.

Introducing Curvaceous & Captivating

I know the cover has been out there for a while, but I haven’t said anything about Curvaceous & Captivating. Since it’s out in just two weeks, I better start telling you about it!

You know Olivia. She’s Abby’s new friend, and Tara’s best friend from high school. She’s Wyatt’s assistant, and Becca and Kevin’s mom.

But who is Olivia?

Olivia is an overweight woman. She’s a kick-butt single mom. She doesn’t swear. She wishes she never married her ex, but knows that means she never would have had her kids, so she’s okay with it. She’s a mess most days. She’s never on time for anything. She is always stressed, but loves her life and loves her kids and would do anything for them.

She’s also a little lonely. A lot sometimes. Her son is inching closer to his teenage years, and she wishes he had a man in his world. She wants things for herself too. A hot bath. A night off. A few minutes to collect her thoughts. A big glass of wine.

What she does not want is a man who’s going to push his way into her delicately balanced life and try to tell her how to live. Someone who’s going to challenge everything she thought she knew and shove her out of her comfort zone.

She doesn’t have the time, or the energy, for a man like that.

Too bad Ethan doesn’t take no for an answer…

Excerpt from Curvaceous & Captivating

“When are you free this weekend?”

Shocked at the rough tone and the personal question, I blurted, “I don’t work weekends.”

He was not going to be one of those sponsors who thought I’d work around the clock for them. I worked for Mayor Ramsey. And he never asked me to work weekends. I wasn’t changing that for a sponsor, no matter how much money he brought in.”

“I’m not asking you about work, Olivia. I’m taking you out.”

He could not be serious. Why in the heck did he think I’d go out with him?

“No.”

I heard a quick intake of his breath as I held mine.

“Yes, Olivia.”

“Why would I go out with you?”

“I told you I was going to fight for you, Olivia.”

“And then you accused me of sleeping with my boss and called me a slut.”

He sighed, or maybe growled, I wasn’t sure. “I did not call you a slut, Olivia. You were flirting with your boss, asking him out-”

“I did not ask him out!”

“I heard you, you kept telling him to come out with you. That he knew your friends.”

I groaned. “It’s really none of your business.”

“I didn’t figure you for a tease, Olivia. Usually women like you are not that way.”

What. The. Heck!

“Women like me. What does that mean?”

Another sigh. “I’m messing this up. Listen. Saturday. I’ll pick you up.”

“No, Mr. Norwood. I don’t want to go out with you.”

He growled. “Ethan. And yes, you do, Olivia. I know you want me. I saw it every time you looked at me Friday night. I acted like an ass. I didn’t like hearing you flirting with another man. I want the chance to get to know you. Please let me take you out.”
