Love At First Fight

Love At First Fight, first kiss

Tags : 

Love At First FightI love first kisses. I can still remember my first ever kiss at thirteen. It was awkward and strange, but it was special because it was my first kiss.

I also remember my first kiss with my husband. Awkward and strange weren’t anywhere near the words I’d use to describe that kiss! I was already well on my way to falling for him by the time we kissed, something we waited for so we knew emotions and a physical relationship wouldn’t get confused. It’s been fifteen years since that first kiss, but he still kisses me the same way. Like he can’t get enough!

For Andie and Cody, their first kiss was a little like mine with my hubby. A bit of a shock, but oh so very worth the wait!

Excerpt from Love At First Fight

“Andie?”

Her eyes snapped open. He was close. Close enough that it wouldn’t take much for her to press her lips to his. He was taller than her, but she could reach with her heels on. There was no one around. No one to witness her embarrassment. No one to chastise her for throwing herself at him.

He tucked a strand of hair behind her ear, lingering on the strand just long enough to muddy her brain. She wasn’t wrong. She couldn’t be. Right?

She couldn’t second guess any longer. She had to know.

Andie launched herself at him, throwing her arms around his neck and pressing her body against his. Their lips came together with a surprised grunt from Cody. He wrapped his arms around her, catching her more than embracing her. His lips didn’t move. Didn’t respond to her attempt to kiss him. Shame melted past the desire that had filled her just seconds ago, and she started to pull back.

Then his arms tightened. A groan tore from his throat. And he took over the kiss.

One hand dipped to her waist, pressing her against him. The other cupped her jaw, his fingers tickling the sensitive skin behind her ear. His lips were warm against hers. Full. They covered hers the same way he covered her. Made her feel safe.

He tentatively brushed her lips with his tongue. She opened for him, pushing away the thoughts racing through her head saying she was making a mistake. She couldn’t play Cody. He’d learn the truth. Except when he did, he wouldn’t add to the lies like all the others.

Andie pushed away from him as quickly as she’d thrown herself at him. He didn’t get the memo so his arm was locked around her waist. She struggled against his hold until he released her.

“What…?” he asked, but she was already gone. Inside. Safe. Away from the hottest kiss of her life. The kiss that made her rethink everything she’d always known about men.

Love At First Fight

Love At First Fight, tempting

Tags : 

If you’ve read Love The Wine You’re With and Never A Bridesmaid, Always A Bride, I know you’re waiting for Love At First Fight! Andie Young is complicated. She’s flirtatious and outgoing and confident. But there’s so much more to Andie than what meets the eye. Beneath her tough exterior is a woman who’s scared to let a man close. She knows it’ll only lead to a let down.

Cody Powell has wanted Andie for fifteen years. Back when she was illegal and off-limits. Over time, he’s learned a lot about her. But there’s still a few secrets he doesn’t know. And a few she doesn’t even suspect about him.

They both struggle to resist the temptation of being together, especially when that temptation is so deliciously on display for Andie to enjoy…

Love At First FightExcerpt from Love At First Fight

“Hey, Andie, right?” Kent said.

Wow, dude? That’s your opening line?

“Um, yeah. I’m sorry, I don’t know your name.”

“I’m Kent. I’m the lead on this job.”

Cody rolled his eyes.

“Oh,” Andie said. “I didn’t realize that. Is there something wrong?”

“Oh, uh, no. Sorry. I was just wondering if I could take you out.”

“Oh, um. I’m not sure that’s a good idea.”

Kent grinned broader and leaned in. “Trust me, it’s a good idea. How about this weekend?”

Andie’s eyes flashed to Cody’s. His cheeks heated at being caught listening to them, but then she widened her eyes in an obvious gesture for help. Cody cleared his throat and pushed off the edge of the truck.

“Hey, Kent. Can you check that ridge on the far side? Mikey said it might need to be tightened before we got back up there.”

Kent glanced at Andie then swung his eyes back to Cody. Cody tried to give him a sympathetic look, hoping he would take the hint and leave. Kent sighed and nodded, then walked away with slumped shoulders. Cody watched the kid go, knowing exactly how he felt.

“Thanks,” Andie said. “I hate when that happens. I feel bad, but he’s really not my type.”

Cody nodded. He tried to keep his mouth shut, but it had a mind of its own and the question burst free. “What is your type?”

Andie’s eyes snapped to his. He saw something in them that he didn’t recognize. They left his and fluttered down to his chest, still bare, then back up to his. That look he knew. Desire.

Coming from Andie.

Directed at him.

What. The. Hell?

Curvaceous & Captivating

Curvaceous & Captivating, oh so alpha

Tags : 

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.

#FiveOnFriday with Me!

Tags : 

My guest author for today wasn’t able to provide a post, but it works out for me because I wanted to share something with you!

I’ve teamed up with 55+ fantastic medium to steamy small town contemporary romance authors to give away a huge collection of novels to 2 lucky winners, PLUS a Kindle Fire to the Grand Prize winner!  You can win my novel, Plump & Pretty, plus books from authors like Marie Force and Carly Phillips! 

Enter the giveaway by clicking here: bit.ly/small-town-rom-2

Good luck, and enjoy!

But it is Five On Friday, so I wanted to share a few things about the Big & Beautiful series that you might not know!

  1. I wrote the first eight books out of order. Plump & Pretty was actually the fourth book I wrote, even though it falls sixth in the series. Shapely & Stunning was eighth. The first book I wrote was Chubby & Charming though.
  2. I had no idea Tara and Olivia knew each other until I wrote the epilogue for Puffy & Precious. On top of that, I didn’t know why they weren’t friends anymore until I wrote about it in Round & Ravishing.
  3. When I first envisioned Abby, she was a skinny woman, and she was not going to end up as one of the friends with a book. By the time I revised Fluffy & Fabulous, I liked Abby enough that I wanted to give her a story of her own.
  4. I didn’t know Olivia’s full story until I started writing Curvaceous & Captivating. I knew she was divorced, but I wasn’t sure why her ex left.
  5. My two favorite couples have been Carrie and Drew, from Husky & Hot, and Olivia and Ethan, from Curvaceous & Captivating. They were the two that extracted the most emotion for me.

If you haven’t checked out the series yet, Chubby & Charming is free everywhere! And don’t forget to enter the contest to win one of two copies of Plump & Pretty, plus over 55 books from other steamy, small town contemporary authors.

I’m still celebrating release week today. Stop by and say hi to me and Ann Everett!

Have a great Friday!
