Well, the Lush & Lovely cover has been out there for a while, but I wanted to draw special attention to it. The book will be available in a week (yay!). I’m so excited about this book coming out and had to share the cover and a quick sneak peak with you.
Claire doesn’t trust very easily. After having her heart shattered by the first boy she ever trusted, she closed herself off, physically and emotionally, from men. When she wasn’t looking, Aidan slipped past her defenses and became her friend.
Friend Claire could handle. Aidan fixed her coffee each morning at work, helped her during the day, and asked her out regularly. Claire knew the last part was a joke, until Aidan convinced her it wasn’t.
All of a sudden the man she’d been lusting after, who was safe because he wasn’t a possibility, isn’t safe. And neither is her heart.
Claire wants Aidan, more than she ever thought she would want a man. She just has to figure out if she is willing to trust him, and if he’s as lovely as he seems.
Excerpt from Lush & Lovely
“I think it’s time I get you into bed,” he said, igniting a fire inside me. I leaned toward him ever so slightly and grinned. I’d never been so excited to go to bed with a man. Maybe being a bit drunk was the secret.
“I was hoping you’d say that,” I cooed before I reached up and wound my hands around his neck. I rubbed my body against his like a dog in heat and leaned toward his mouth with mine leading the charge. I tugged his face toward me and our lips met in the middle.
Memories of our first kiss drifted away as our second kiss took center stage. Good God the man knew how to kiss. He quickly took control, his hands slipping into my hair and angling my head as his lips teased and tasted mine. He tasted a bit like beer, but I didn’t mind. Our lips danced together, meeting again and again, each time we pulled away making me want him closer all over again.
When Aidan finally dared to dart his tongue between my parted lips, I sighed in approval. One of his hands slid down to my waist and held my hips tight against his. His erection strained against his shorts and I knew it was going to be a good night.
“Jesus, you kiss like a goddess,” he rasped as he pulled back. His lips went to my ear where his teeth slipped out and bit into the soft skin of my earlobe. I gasped at the sudden sensation and he laved over it with his tongue, turning my gasp into a moan of pleasure.
Aidan’s teeth trailed over my neck then his tongue dipped between my collarbones before he worked his way up the other side of my neck. His fingers bit into my fleshy hip and I dragged him by the hair back to my mouth for more.
His tongue thrust quickly into my mouth, not waiting for an invitation. I tried to drag him toward my bedroom, but he held still, his kisses making me forget about anything but the feel of his tongue against mine and his arms surrounding me. His lips were soft against mine, his tongue hard and urgent. I wanted the rest of him hard and urgent.
“Let’s go to my room,” I purred, knowing he was as ready as I was.
“I can’t Claire.”
