Campbell She nibbles on the corner of her lips. “My friend Roxy thinks I should—” “—let yourself have a good time for one more night?” “How did you know?” “She seemed like a good wingwoman.” I reach for a strand of her hair, running my finger across the soft locks, cataloging her reaction. “Want to know what I’m thinking?” She nods.

~Karsen~ I was stuck to the spot, trapped by all the jagged, sharp pieces of my broken fantasies. I wanted to bolt, to run as far away as I could, but I couldn’t move. I felt like the shards would rip me to shreds any direction I turned. Even when the naked woman continued making out with the man of my dreams right in front of me, I was stuck in the same spot. The noises they were making were loud and graphic and all-encompassing. I could hear them echoing in the empty places in my chest where my heart […]
Delanie pulled the sheet over her head as she lay in bed. She’d take anything to get rid of Aiden—a surprise zit on her nose, the tequila hangover of death, eighteen bad hair days—it would all be worth it just to get some peace. The medicine the doctor had prescribed made her sleepy, but every time she woke up, Aiden was there, giving her water, handing her more pills, or hovering just outside the bedroom, waiting for her to come out of the bathroom and get back into bed. But even in a drugged haze, she couldn’t ignore the obvious […]
After the last course—chocolate mousse—the three of us go tripping back across the cold lawn in the dark, Aurora in the lead. I’m the tiniest bit tipsy and wearing heels. So naturally, I stumble on a frozen clod of snow and nearly fall. But Jake catches my hand to steady me. “Thanks,” I breathe. Curiously, his warm fingers remain curled around mine until we reached the door of Habernacker. I try not to feel ridiculously excited about it. He lets go when we all reach the third floor. When Aurora opens the door, he follows us inside until we all […]

Jesus Christ, she has a dimple in her damn cheek. I’m a sucker for those. She shoots me a tentative smile, ass parked on the stoop, back propped against the wooden siding of the house. It’s obvious that she’s blushing by the way she ducks her head, glancing down at the floor, the soft glow from the two busted lamps illuminate the crown of her head. The porch lights are busted and rusty, needing their bulbs changed, one flickering—the other just about to burn out. It makes the entire place look like a goddamn Halloween fun-house, casting a weird glow […]
“What the hell?” Todd sat up straighter in his chair. “Hey, man.” “Are you on a date?” Ren’s words seethed out. He completely ignored Todd, his eyes never strayed from her. His cheeks were pink, either from anger or alcohol, or both. His lips pulled into a tight line, but his bloodshot eyes couldn’t hide his hurt. She’d done that to him even after he’d given her exactly what she asked for-time. Her chest tightened and a lump in her throat threatened to choke her. “Yes, we are. Why does it matter to you?” Todd stood and crossed his […]
In this scene, Lady Juliana must deal with a local crime lord who threatens her and the orphanage she loves. Fortunately, she’s saved, for the moment, by a handsome guest. ____________________________________________________________________________________ His hand came down hard on her shoulder, and she flinched from the feel of his leather gloves on her bare skin. “Allow me to remind you, Lady Juliana. I offered you my protection.” “Thank you very much.” She slid out of his grip. “Now, if you will excuse—” “Stop playing games. I am a man of business, and you are not a stupid woman. There are dangerous men […]
