Release Blitz: The Allure Of Dean Harper By R.S. Grey

To: JosephineKeller@VogueMagazine.com
Subject: You’re a flippin’ idiot

Good morning my dear, naive friend,

I hope you’re enjoying a breakfast of regret and sorrow.

Why?

Because you sent me to work for Dean Harper, aka a control freak in a tailor-made suit. Sure he owns the trendiest restaurants in NYC, but c’mon Jo, his ego makes Kanye West look like the Dalai Lama.

He’s the type of guy that only hears the word “no” when it’s followed by “don’t stop.”

Working for Dean Harper would be like selling my soul to the devil…and before you say anything, I don’t care if the devil has punch-you-in-the-gut brown eyes and an ass to match. My soul isn’t for sale.

Regretfully yours,
Lily

The Allure of Dean Harper is a full-length standalone romance with overlapping characters from The Allure of Julian Lefray. Both books can be read separately. Chronologically, The Allure of Julian Lefray happens first.

 I knew when I read the previous book that the personalities if Dean and Lily would be like gun powder and fire, explosive and I was right.  I laughed out loud so many times that my family probably thought I had cracked up mentally.  I couldn’t help it; the banter back and forth between these two stubborn characters was not only entreating from a comedy stand point but also served as their sexual foreplay.  They weren’t just explosive when at each other’s throats but also when it came for them to get down and dirty with some really hot sex.

I am quickly associating funny, sweet books with R.S. Grey.  I love her ability to have her readers laughing out loud one minute and reaching for your significant other the next.  If you haven’t picked up the first book in this series, grab it and then read The Allure Of Dean Harper.  These are books that any book lover who loves a good laugh in their books should have on their TBR lists.
I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things…everyday.

I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors are Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I’m a comedy geek and love all things funny. Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.

Review: Sinful (Bad Boy Rockers #5) by Lexi Buchanan


Jace Stone’s life has been spiraling out of control since he was shot in the line of duty five years before.

When his old Captain suggests he tutor a second grade class on the softball field as a favor to his niece—their teacher—he thinks, why not? Life can’t get any worse. What he doesn’t expect is the niece to be a hot, little redhead with curls all the way to her round bottom. She quickly works her way into his dreams, teasing his senses and leaving him hot, hard, and craving a taste of her sexy red lips . . .

Savannah Devereux is relieved when her Uncle Ned finds a softball coach to teach her class, but she never expected to be faced with a six-foot mountain of a man who looks like he just climbed out of bed. His heated glances cause her female parts to sit up and take notice, but it’s his sexy five o’clock shadow and sinful mouth that keep her tossing and turning at night.

The more time they spend together, the more the heat ignites between them. But with his demons to battle and her engagement to someone else, someone is going to get burned.

A man who’s been through hell and a teacher who belongs to another, come together on the softball field, but soon find their lessons extend beyond the field.

 
Wow! This is the end of the Bad Boy Rockers series, and what a way to go out.
Jace Stone was severely wounded and left to deal with the impact of that fateful day. We meet him years after the incident, but that doesn’t mean his nightmares are over. There are times when he wakes up in a cold sweat or worse, he remains asleep, thrashing and endangering anyone near him. It is this reason he keeps his distance and can’t fully commit to the girl who’s ensnared his heart and keeps hold of his thoughts.
Savannah Devereux was in a bad place in her life. She lost her last remaining parent a few years back and with that, lost herself. She entered a relationship with a man she didn’t really want to be with, but he was there at the time when she just needed someone. It’s not until she meets Jace that she feels the haze she’s been living in start to wear off. He awakens her mind and body, and for the first time makes her want.
Sinful is definitely filled with plenty of steam, but it’s also got a lot of heart. Jace is such a sweetheart. He’s charming, endearing, funny, good with kids, and it goes without saying, he’s hot. Oh, Jace, if only you knew how amazing you are. But, of course, there has to be a flaw in all that perfect. He won’t open up, well not fully. He doesn’t share with Savannah the nightmares that plague him and his fear of hurting her unconsciously. A girl can only take so much of feeling like she’s being pushed away before she decides to walk. Jace needs to act fast and lay it all out there for her. But what happens when they decide to face his demons together?
Jace has so much more healing to do, more than either of them fully realizes, and Savannah has to face the choice of putting her life on hold, again, or moving forward.
Sinful left my heart full. Jace and Savannah clearly belong together. They bring out the best in each other, but there are many hurdles for them to go through before they reach their HEA. And let me tell you, Lexi Buchanan keeps you on the edge till the very end.

Review: Nerd Girl By Jemma Bell

Amy Jenkins is your typical bookish Nerd Girl. She believes her heart will be safer crushing on fictional characters than the real thing. As her bad luck would have it she runs into her favorite book boyfriend in the most unlikely of places.

Derrick Walker is a cover model for a world famous author. He has a busy schedule and never expected to have the girl of his dreams literally fall at his feet. 
The Nerd Girl and The Hunk in love. Can a relationship work between these two? Along for the ride are smart aleck best friends, an agent who makes the wicked witch look like a girl scout and a coonhound named Clyde. Nerd Girl is sure to be a wild ride.
I stumbled across Nerd Girl when it was available for preorder, so as most book whores do, I preordered it since the blurb sounded pretty good.  I mean come on a nerd and a book boyfriend cover model?  I so wish that would happen to me in real life, well if I didn’t have that husband and all.  If you are reading this my dear sweet husband, you know I love you.  I read it a couple of days after it released and I absolutely LOVED it!  I love when a nerd or geeky type character knocks the sexy hot male or female on their ass and they have to have the nerd or geek.  What can I say I am a little nerdy in real life so I cheer for the nerds in the world.
Amy may be nerdy, but this girl will surprise you.  She is feisty, sassy, funny and overall just real.  She knows she is a nerd, well a book nerd to be more specific.  So when Derrick literally runs right into her, at first she is awestruck. Well that is until he ends up with his foot in his mouth when he is a jackass.  I could almost picture their interaction in my head when I was reading.  Derrick can’t help but fall for the girl who looks like a naughty librarian, and when he finds a way to get in contact with her I was on the edge of my seat hoping that it all works out.  Too bad he has a psycho agent who happens to be an ex fuck buddy, who at every turn tries to sabotage the relationship that Amy and Derrick are forming.  God I wanted to slap the living hell out of that bitch on more than one occasion, I will admit I wanted to slap and possibly knee Derrick as well for a couple of things he did and didn’t do.
I believe this is the first book by Jemma Bell and I also this is the first book in a series.  I can’t wait to read more from this author.  If the rest of her books keep me laughing and giggling with a small side of angst and a heavy dose of the nerd getting the guy then I will read them all.  So if you are a fan of nerds getting the hot guy or girl, make sure you add this one to your TBR lists and find out why I cheered on the nerd girl getting the hot cover model guy.

Virtual Tour: Truly Sweet By Candis Terry

Candis Terry returns to Sweet, Texas for the last time when former Marine Jake Wilder discovers how truly sweet love can be.

When the one you’ve always wanted

At sixteen, Annabelle Morgan hoped her crush on Jake Wilder was just a passing phase. Now she’s twenty-nine and nothing has changed except Jake. The once-carefree marine has come home with a giant chip on his shoulder. He insists a single mom like Annie deserves more than he can offer. Yet no matter how gruff his gorgeous exterior may be, Jake s toe-curling kisses convince her that this attraction is definitely mutual.

Becomes the one who wants you back

Butting heads with feisty Annie was always a thrill. Add other body parts to the mix, and Jake is in serious trouble. He can’t be a forever-and-family guy and Annie s not a friends-with-benefits kind of woman. But love has a way of changing the best-laid plans, and surrender has never been so tempting.

The outcome is truly sweet.

*Hangs head in shame*  I bet you are wondering why I am doing that aren’t you?  Well you know how I always try to read a series or be caught up prior to reading one for a review?  Well *kicks feet across the ground in a child like manner*, well I hadn’t read any of the books in this series prior to reading Truly Sweet and I am so mad at myself because it appears that I have been missing out on a really good series.  The even sadder thing?  I have the first two books still packed away from my move last year, yep last year and I am still not close to being unpacked.  Enough about my self condemnation and lets get to the book now shall we.
As you all know by now I have a very large soft spot for a military hero especially one that was wounded or suffers from PTSD.  So when I read the blurb for Truly Sweet and saw that Jake was a former Marine I knew that I had to sign up.  I am so glad that I did because this is one that will make you want to take Jake into your arms and help him work through his guilty feelings and demons.  I honestly believe that Annie was the best thing to have happened to him.  Sometimes it isn’t medications, therapy or the bottom of a bottle that helps wounds heal, but the right person even if at first it may not seem like it at first.  Annie was feisty, funny and sweet.  She had a crush on Jake for a long time, since they were kids.  She needed Jake as much as he needed her. 
Honestly this book was a great sweet romance that left me with a very large smile on my face and happiness in my heart.  Truly Sweet is the final book in this series but I can guarantee that I will be going back and reading the previous books before reading this one once more because I have a feeling it will be one I reread a lot in the future.

Excerpt:
While Jake made his way to a booth, he got a two-finger salute from Bill McBride, a Vietnam vet, and a chin lift from Ray Calhoun who were sitting at a table playing a game of checkers. At the big round table in the back, the Digging Divas Garden Club looked up in surprise. Instead of their usual exuberance, most just smiled as though they realized he might need some space. The tear sliding down Arlene Potter’s crinkly cheek could have been from allergies. Or it could have been because, even at her advanced age, Arlene loved a man in uniform. Not that he was wearing one. But that really didn’t matter to Arlene. She had a vivid imagination.
Jake tried to relax. He hadn’t known exactly what he’d be walking into here, but the silent acknowledgements worked just fine for him.
With his favorite booth vacant, he eased over to the middle of the red vinyl seat and stretched out his leg. As he looked out the window at the passersby on their way through their daily routines he took a breath to ease the ache slicing down his thigh. Moments later a menu sailed onto the table in front of him and a cup of ice water landed without a splash.
His head instantly came up.
Blue eyes focused, Annie Morgan stood there, weight balanced on one hip while she tapped the eraser of her pencil against the order pad.
In the past couple of years the Wilder family had expanded with three of his brothers having said the I do’s. Thanks to his brother, Jackson, and her sister, Abby, he and Annie were now related by marriage. Before that they’d been adversaries for as long as Jake could remember. Always outspoken and not a stranger to butting in where she didn’t belong, they’d gone head-to-head on many outlandish subjects. If he said the sky was blue, she’d argue it was turquoise. If he said a steak would take seven minutes to grill, she’d say five. If he said the Rangers would win by a homerun, she’d bet they’d lose with a strike-out. It seemed like the girl just liked to argue. More often than not, he’d rise to the bait. Just as he always did with his brothers. One of these days he’d learn to just sit back and smile.
Today probably wasn’t that day.

Blog Tour: Love Burns By Babette James

Smokejumper Dave Knight lives by two simple rules—play hard, work harder. Heartache taught him love and commitment don’t mix with his high-intensity lifestyle. That hot kiss with the classy Olivia Benedetti-Harper was a mistake, but he walked away in time. Too bad he can’t run from the memories. Then a plane crash shatters his future, forcing him to face the ashes of his past, the woman he can’t forget, and the toughest challenge of his life: Stop running.
The right man broke her heart. How could the wrong man heal it? Obedient daughter and dutiful wife, Olivia always followed the rules—only to be abandoned by her unfaithful husband. As she rebuilds her life, bad-boy Dave is a sizzling temptation she can’t afford. However, breaking the rules with the wrong man might be the best mistake this good girl’s ever made for love.

Love Burns is the third book in the River series and sadly I hadn’t read the previous two books but I was able to read this one without really feeling overly lost.  Yeah I know I always read the previous books, at first I didn’t realize it and then I didn’t have enough time to read them before I read Love Burns.  But I will be going back to read them as well as doing a reread of this one.
I was pleasantly surprised just how quickly I was invested into this book, from the start I was drawn into Olivia and Dare’s story.  This book was emotional, sexy and one of healing.  Dave suffers from PTSD, which if you have read my reviews before you know that I love someone who suffers from it so when I read about a Hero who has it, I tend to open my heart to that character just a little more than I would have. 
I just really liked Love Burns and am curious to see where the author plans to take this series.   I think I have found another author that will be added to my keep an eye on list, because if the first two books are as good as Love Burns is, then readers are in for a treat.

​“Come here.” Dave held out his hand. “You’ll need your back done.”
Olivia handed him the sunscreen bottle and knelt.
He lightly kissed her nape before drizzling the lotion over her back. He smoothed both hands along her spine to the cleft of her bottom and to her hips, gliding, sliding, over waist, ribs, shoulders, and neck, turning the simple lotion application into a sensual massage. Her sigh escaped as a dreamy groan.
“Turn around.” His low husky voice drew a deep shiver through her core.
She shifted around, and her mouth dried at his simmering gaze.
He squeezed more lotion onto his fingertips. “Shut your eyes.”
Bright sunlight glowed through her closed eyelids. Cool touches of lotion brushed her face and throat, and she shivered under Dave’s delicate touch.
“Keep your eyes shut.”
She heard him shift on the blanket. His fingertips traced her face, trailed down her throat, and his breath whispered over her face, the scent of apple warning how close his lips were to hers. More gentle sweeps followed, ever lower, to the curves of her breasts.
His lips brushed hers and he dusted kisses across her cheek and jaw, and the tip of her nose, which made her giggle. His warm hand cupped her breast and, at the rough graze of his thumb, she shivered, nervous, yet greedy for more. As he drifted more lazy kisses lower, his thumb played a mesmerizing rhythm, setting her pulse to anxious dancing.
Stop, let him play. This is what you’ve craved: to play, to be wanted, to feel.
Carefully following the rules had brought her heartbreak. Breaking the rules couldn’t be any worse. Right?
The world spun for a second as he rolled Olivia under him.
She gasped and blinked, startled, but intrigued. Yes, she trusted he’d honor a no, but all she could think was oh, yes.

Blog Tour: Pretty Remedy By S.E. Hall

Envy is a silent, cold-blooded killer, extinguishing a little more life from me every day. 
Hitting sharp, fast and seemingly out of nowhere; struck by lightning not a storm cloud in sight… in she rolls. Reece Madison, a force to be reckoned with, head of the class- which means one thing- she’s out of mine. 
“You’re wasting your time Rhett Foster. Locks have keys and walls can be climbed. I’m not buying your cold, skeptical act for one minute.” 
And then there’s that…
But as much as she compels me to open up, show her what no one else gets to see…there’s guilty shadows lurking in the depths of her eyes that she cannot hide.
Pretty Remedy is the second book in S.E. Hall’s Finally Found series, and for me it was even better than the first book Pretty Instinct.  S.E. Hall just has a way that has you loving her characters from the start, and her hero’s are some of my favorite book boyfriends. 
Pretty Remedy is a funny, sweet read that slowly builds into something sexy and has you hooked from the first page until the last.  I loved how Rhett was basically knocked on his ass by Reece.  The chemistry between them is indescribable, the banter will have you snorting in laughter and even though both have their own personal issues that when you have the right person by your side and in your heart all of those things can be overcome.
If you haven’t had the opportunity to read this series yet, take the time to pick up Pretty Instinctand then Pretty Remedy.  I can’t wait for S.E. Hall to release the next book in this series because if it is as kick ass as Pretty Remedy was then her fans will be in for a special treat that is for damn sure.

It always happens the same way, every time. The second I finish coming, the blip of exhilaration dissipates, and I’m left feeling vapid and angry. I turn my back on my latest conquest and, blocking out the images of insincere, physical satiation, I scurry off like a criminal. Maybe I should quit fucking them.
Or maybe I shouldn’t. The tête-à-têtes, and unrequited clinginess as much their fault as my own—more in fact, if everyone’s being honest with themselves. I tell them, straight up, in plain English, no “code” or sidestepping what I’m really saying, that it’s one fuck. I offer absolutely nothing more, and they accept. But women have a specific order and purpose to everything they do. It shouldn’t eat at me when another woman discovers her plan didn’t work, and surprise, she isn’t the one “different” enough to change me. 
You want to be the lady worthy of a call the next day, flowers, a ring? Then don’t ride the dick until you get at least one of them. And if you do jump on—gyrating and grinding in what you’re just certain is some mystical, “He’s never had it so good before” kind of way, and it doesn’t work—don’t blame anyone but yourself. Who was really trying to manipulate who?

S.E.Hall, lover of all things anticipation and romance, is the author of The Evolve Series: Emerge, Embrace, Entangled, Entice and Baby Mama Drama, as well as the stand-alone novel Pretty Instinct. Her co-written works included The Provocative Professions Collection: Stirred Up, Packaged and Handled, One Naughty Night and full-length novel Matched with Angela Graham as well as Conspire, a romantic suspense with Erin Noelle. S.E. resides in Arkansas with her husband of 18 years and 3 daughters of the home. When not writing or reading, she can be found “enthusiastically cheering” on one of her girls’ softball games.

Release Day Blitz: When I Fall By J. Daniels

From NY Times and USA Today Bestselling author, J. Daniels

Book three in the Alabama Summer series.

For the past nine years, I’ve kept my heart as far away from my dick as possible.

Those two can’t be anywhere near each other. They don’t play nice, and one of them undoubtedly winds up getting hurt.

Not my dick. My dick is good.

The women I take home know exactly what they’re getting from me—sex. Nothing more. At least, that’s what’s supposed to happen. The sweet brunette from Kentucky I set my sights on tonight shouldn’t have been any different. I had her right where I wanted her. Where I needed her. But when my past comes walking into McGill’s pub, the woman in my arms decides to take things to a whole new level, putting me into a situation I never saw coming.

My heart is about to get fucked. My dick can sit this one out.

*** Warning: This book is recommended for readers over the age of 18 due to strong language and explicit sexual content. When I Fall can be read as a standalone novel.

When I Fall is the third book in the Alabama Summer series and I loved it as much as the first two.  It is a standalone but I suggest you read the first two books in the series just to have some background on the other characters from previous books.
I have wanted Reed’s book ever since we are first introduced to him in the first book.  We know he is this huge man whore, only spending one night with someone and then showing them the door.  We know he had a woman hurt him in the past and that made him who he is today.  So I know what you are all thinking, oh this guy is your typical jackass who only uses women, blah blah blah.  Well he kind of is that but he is also a great guy who cares about his friends, will drop anything to help them and who takes the time to show Nolan (read the first book to find out who he is) attention when the little guy is around.  He doesn’t know what hits him when he meets Beth, normally his dick is what runs the show but this time it’s his own heart that kicks his ass and runs the show.
Beth has had a hard past but she finally found family who she can turn to.  Meeting Reed and what happens when they meet isn’t something she planned on happening obviously but she wasn’t going to let anyone act like that without getting a dose of their own medicine.  There is this undeniable sexual tension between Beth and Reed from the absolute start but there is more as well.  Beth is just what Reed needs even if he doesn’t know it until it is almost to late.

My only let down is that I wish Reed had put his ex in her place when he had the chance but besides that little complaint I loved it.  This is a sexy series but it is not only just sexy, but sweet and a series that shows that love can heal old wounds when the two are meant to be together even through the hard times.  I don’t know if J. Daniels plans to write more to the Alabama Summer series but if she does, sign me up because I would read it in a heartbeat.

“There were days that I would have exchanged a year of my life just to touch you one more time.” –Mark Williams
EXCERPT
I knock on Mer’s apartment door and shift back and forth on my feet. I haven’t been this nervous since the very first time I picked her up for a date early in our Junior year. I’ve come a long way since then. Suddenly the door is wrenched open and Jax is standing there with a wide smile. “Hey,” he says. “Hi. I’m here to pick up Meredith.” “Mr. Delicious is here for your date, tootsie roll!” Jax yells. “I’m right here, dork,” Meredith says as she slips under his arm out into the hallway. “Ignore him. He has horrible manners.” “Have fun,” Jax continues, leaning on the doorjamb with his arms crossed and watching us walk to the elevator. I brace my hand on the small of her back and feel the electricity travel up my arm and down to my groin. After all this time, the chemistry is still here. “You have her home at a decent time, now. I’ll leave the light on.” “Shut up, Jax,” Mer says with a laugh. “Use condoms!” He calls just as the elevator arrives. “Oh my God! Shut the hell up, Jax!” He laughs as the doors close and I can only smile in delight down at her. Her cheeks are pink with embarrassment. Her hair is pulled up in one of her signature messy buns and she’s in jeans and a blue sweater the same color as her eyes. Jesus, she’s fucking gorgeous. “You look amazing,” I say and rub a large circle over her slender back. “So do you,” she murmurs and looks up and down at my plain black T-shirt and jeans. I threw a plaid button down over the T, but her eyes travel to my arms anyway. She always did have a thing for my arms. “Thanks for coming out with me tonight.” “Thanks for inviting me,” she replies with a grin. “Where are we going?” “You’ll see.”

Blog Tour & Character Interview: Tied With Me (With Me in Seattle #6) by Kristen Proby


A man whose lifestyle is so different from her own…
Nic Dalton’s cupcake bakery is thriving. She serves both rock stars and locals alike, content with her growing business. But one adventurous night out with her best friend, Bailey, turns her life upside down. She meets a handsome stranger who makes her skin sizzle and her heart race. Their one night together is explosive and unexpected, but when he has to suddenly leave without taking her phone number, Nic resigns herself to never seeing him again.
…What will it take to trust and submit to his every desire?
Matt Montgomery is one of Seattle’s finest. He works hard, loves and protects his family fiercely, and is loyal almost to a fault.
And he has a penchant for bondage.
Matt enjoys the way a woman looks wrapped up in his ropes, and makes no apologies for his preferences. When he meets Nic at a fetish festival, the small, beautiful woman catches his eye, drawing him to her. His one night with her was everything he’s ever looked for in a partner, but is cut short because of a family emergency. Even before he sees her again weeks later, he knows he’ll never get her out of his system.
And he’ll do whatever it takes to make her his.

“Give in to this, Nic. Let me prove to you that I will be one of the best decisions you ever make.” –Matt Montgomery

Character Interview
Nadine here! I am beyond excited. I’m happily awaiting Nic Dalton, the heroine from Kristen Proby’s latest installment in the With Me in Seattle series, Tied With Me. Oh I see her now!
Hi Nic! Thank you so much for meeting me at Vintage. I know your Sundays are usually Bailey time, so I promise to be quick.
Thanks for inviting me! It’s a pleasure to meet you.
Tied With Me is yours and Matt’s story. This was a spicy read. I loved how you were open to trying something so out of your norm. What made you go for it? What was it about that first encounter with Matt at the festival that compelled you to let him demonstrate his ropes?
The man is sexy as all get-out for starters. But more than that there’s something about him that just makes me WANT to please him, to do as he asks. It’s really difficult to explain.
The end of your first night of passion with him, while satisfying, didn’t exactly end well. I mean the guy ran out on you without so much as getting your number. Did you ever expect to see him again? What was the first thought that entered your mind when you saw Matt at Brynna’s wedding?
No, I never expected to run into Matt again. When I first saw him at the wedding, I think my first thought was, “holy shit!”
I love how he calls you little one. I swear when he called you on the phone after the wedding and said it, chills ran down my arms. Do you have a special nickname for him?
Isn’t he sweet? Hmm… I don’t really have a specific nickname for Matt. Well, not one that he’ll let me share.
You’ve been immersed in Matt’s brand of kink for a while now. That man certainly makes use of some interesting tying implements. Which has been your favorite? Anything new we haven’t seen?
Let me think… favorite… Well, it’s always fun when he uses the apron. There are all kinds of uses for that! Not long ago he made use of my favorite scarf. I think I’ll be “cold” more often.
 So, what’s next for you guys? Are you ready for him to pop the big question yet or does that make you nervous?
It’s still pretty early for us. I’m content knowing that we’re committed to each other and plan to be together for a very, very long time.
Alright, alright that’s it for the tough questions. Thank you so much for meeting me here. Before I go though, just one more question. You had Adam-freaking-Levine in your cupcake shop. How in the hell did you not kidnap that man and stow him away upstairs? *sigh* Seriously, though what was that encounter like?
Most of us were pretty much speechless during  that encounter. But Adam’s soooo nice, and just as good looking in person as he is on TV. Now that Leo Nash? He’s in almost daily, and I must admit, I have a bit of a crush on that one. Hello, hot rock star. *winks*
Yeah who wouldn’t have a crush on hot rocker Leo Nash?! Again, thank you, Nic, for taking the time to meet me today.

During the one incredible night they shared, he violated the no fraternization policy…among other things, and it won’t happen again. Jules won’t risk her career for mind-blowing sex, no matter how much her body and her damn heart keep arguing with her.

Josh King is an expert at running his family’s multi-million dollar ranch in Montana. (And all that outside manual labor has done wonders for sculpting his six-foot-three body, too.) But as sure footed as he is when it comes to the ranch, Josh doesn’t know anything about how to deal with an adolescent boy—so when his twelve-year-old nephew, Seth, is dropped off on his doorstep, looking scared and acting surly as hell, Josh knows he needs help in straightening him out.

But when she learns she’ll be teaching Josh King’s nephew, Cara’s sweet summer job gets a little bit hotter. Cara tries to focus all her attention on tutoring Seth, but Josh proves to be a delicious distraction, while Josh’s memories of the shy girl he once teased in high school are nothing like the beautiful woman he’s facing now. Can he persuade her that there’s more between them than a summer fling?
