Happy Hump Day

How I see Levi and Carly…

Pinterest couple

“Levi.” She broke off from the kiss, breathless. “We probably shouldn’t do this. It’s not…a good idea.”

He pressed his forehead to hers. “You’re right.”

Great. He agreed with her. “It’s stupid.”

“Yeah.” He tugged her in tighter and kissed her again. And again.

She threaded her fingers through his hair and moaned into his mouth.

And they continued to be crazy stupid for the next hour.



It’s that time…

When I bombard you with excerpts and teasers and photos of the hero and heroine in my latest romance. This Baby Business is coming in 11 days and I hope you will bear with me while I wax poetic (or not) about how much I’ve enjoyed writing this book. With that, here’s a teaser followed by an excerpt:TBB pre-order meme 2

“Being your fake fiancé is not the worst thing to ever happen to me.” Not even the second or third, but he wasn’t going there.

“Were you dating anyone here?”

Seemed like a crisis of conscience had overcome Cute Stuck-Up Girl. Cute Sexy, now. “A coffee date with Lily Hamilton. I was supposed to call and follow up for dinner.”

She closed her eyes, then opened them again. “Lily. She’s so nice. I’m so sorry, Levi.”

“It wasn’t a thing. And you should know, anyway, after you and I kissed, I had no intention of calling her. I haven’t had time to…date. Or anything.” And it had been far too long without the or anything. Also not going there.

“Me, too. I think I forgot how to act around someone of the opposite sex.”

His gaze heated. “You did fine the other night on the couch.”

She coughed. “Yeah. Thanks.”

“What’s wrong? You don’t normally wrestle a pig in front of a guy? Because that can be a mating call in some countries.” He managed to keep a straight face.

She rolled her eyes at him. “No. I don’t have the most stellar history with men.”

“Get out. My fiancée? How did you catch me, then?”

She didn’t laugh. “I wouldn’t normally go out with a guy like you, anyway. Guys like you don’t go for girls like me.”

“Guys like me?”

“I know I’m not sexy, or anything.”

“Yeah, you are,” he said. “Otherwise, I don’t think we’d be engaged.”

“That isn’t funny.”

“It’s a little funny.”

TBB quote meme for FB 4


“Sometimes you’re the only thing that keeps me grounded,” Levi said, shoving a hand through his hair.

It was left mussed, sticking up slightly, and her pulse kicked up at seeing him look so…defenseless.


The thought that she could do that for him meant more to her than it probably should.

“Babe, you have to know that you drive me crazy.” He gave her an easy smile. “In the good way.”

She sucked in a breath but didn’t speak. It seemed they’d just crossed some kind of invisible line. Babe. No point in ignoring the obvious. They liked kissing each other. And maybe they’d like a few other things, too.

He crooked his finger.

She went to him like a cat to catnip and allowed him to pull her onto his lap. Her short floral skater skirt rose to indecent heights as she straddled him. He took full advantage, hands skimming up her bare thighs.

“So soft,” he said in a low and throaty tone.

His voice, deep and gravelly, had her nipples hard. Carly nipped at his lower lip, earning a very male groan from him.

His gaze heated. “That’s hot.”

Levi kissed her, his wicked tongue warm and wet. His hand dived under her T-shirt, sliding up and down her spine, settling at the small of her back. She lost her head and rocked her hips against the bulge in his pants. That pulled an even rougher, more erotic sound out of him, and his hands lowered to tighten on her hips.
