Hey hey, romance junkies. Welcome to Teaser Tuesday. The following tease is from That Certain Something, the second book in a three book contemporary football series I’m currently shopping.

The premise:

Neuroses and self-induced isolation are the legacy of CC Calhoun’s dysfunctional childhood until she literally lands in Kevin “Tuck” Tucker’s lap. When the sexy wide receiver’s shocking kiss stops a debilitating panic attack in its tracks, she has to wonder, has she been cheating herself out a normal life by avoiding men all these years? To test the theory, she propositions Tuck, but will her idea of a few simple dates with the infamous womanizer cure her or is she destined for a broken heart?

The setup:

She’s just laid out her proposition, complete with restrictions. Some kissing and maybe a little light petting is okay but she has no intention of taking their relationship further than semi-platonic. Tuck has other ideas and demands a demonstration, starting with a soul wrenching kiss. Um, yeah. Did I mention Tuck looks a lot like Kris Hemsworth in my mind? Just sayin’.

Unblinking, her eyes met his. His chest bellowed like a thoroughbred after a trip around an oval track, making his voice husky and low. “Still need a second to think?”

“About what?”

Despite the fire raging in his gut, he chuckled, and although he wanted nothing more than to taste her again, he settled for a touch. Fingering a golden curl, he tucked the cool silk behind her ear. “Right answer. Any more points I need to know about?”

She dropped her forehead to his chest for a long moment then straightened. He let her go when she stepped back. “Can I get back to you on that? I can’t seem to recall any points at the moment.”

He fought a grin and crossed his arms to keep from reaching for her again. He might be making the biggest mistake of his life, but her candid honesty charmed him almost as much as her honey sweet body. “You’ve got yourself a deal, sunshine, if you agree to my points.”

Some of the languidness cooled in her eyes. “You have points?”

He nodded.

“How many?”

He held up three fingers.

“What’s number one?”

“Three dates won’t do. Give me a minimum of three weeks or no deal.”

She studied him silently then nodded. “What’s the second point?”

“I decide what we do on these dates.”

She shook her head. “I’m serious about overcoming the attacks, Tuck. I can’t do that if I don’t push myself. To do that, the dates need to be in a public place.”

“Oh, I can guarantee you’ll be pushed.” He planned to do plenty of pushing. She wasn’t the only one with a theory to test. “We’ll deal with your fear of crowds, but from the sound of things, you don’t have a lot of experience just having fun. Stick with me.” He tapped a fingertip to her nose. “I’ll give you three weeks you’ll never forget.”

He smiled when she swallowed, hard. “And three?”

“I’ve agreed to your points. I expect you to agree to mine. Unlike you, I know the pleasure a man and woman can find together when the attraction is mutual.” He narrowed his eyes. “Don’t bother trying to claim that isn’t the case here. You practically melted in my arms.” She lifted her chin. He grinned, holding up a hand. “I’d never force a woman, but that doesn’t mean I won’t do my damndest to get you into my bed.” He leaned closer until her uneven breaths once again bathed his lips with moist heat. “And don’t fool yourself, sunshine. I’ll succeed.”

He wasn’t sure which of them was more surprised by his warning. A virgin. Jesus, what was he thinking? The inner cautioning didn’t stop him from jumping in with both feet. He straightened away from her, but held her unblinking gaze. “Knowing that up front, if you insist on finding yourself a test stud, I’m your man.”

I hope you enjoyed this week’s teaser. For more of my lighthearted contemporary romance titles, visit The Wild Rose Press or Amazon.

Jobless, practically homeless, and tired of being manless, Sophie Taylor jumps at the chance to be Beaumont Walker’s personal assistant. Six weeks on the road with country music’s bad boy–and, more importantly, his all-male crew–is the perfect opportunity to change her life.

Beau Walker doesn’t need any more distractions. Sophie, with her butt-ugly suits and balls-to-the-wall attitude, shouldn’t be one, but she proves to be distracting and more–even, surprisingly, a friend. So when he discovers her plan to snag a man from his worldly wise crew, he’s determined to protect her from herself.

When Sophie realizes Beau is behind her failure to attract even one member of his crew, the last place she expects to find herself is in his bed. But will one night of passion convince her she’s woman enough for him? Or will it destroy their friendship and his budding belief in true love?

Nurse Rachel Dennison comes to Texas determined to prepare her new patient for a second round of chemo. What she isn’t counting on is her patient’s twin brother, Storm Masterson. Despite her initial attraction, Storm has two things Rachel can’t abide: a domineering personality and a fiancée.

Half Native American, with the ability to have “vision dreams,” Storm dreams about Rachel for three nights before her arrival. Both are unprepared for the firestorm of emotions their first encounter ignites.

Ultimately, it is Rachel’s past—and abusive, maniacal ex-boyfriend—that threatens to keep them apart…and Storm’s dreams that bring them together again.

 

Excerpt:

Storm heard off-key singing when he opened the back door. He quietly toed off his boots in the mudroom before stepping into the kitchen.

An open laptop sat on the wooden kitchen table. Beside it was a mug of steaming tea. On the counter, a loaf of wheat bread rested next to a jar of peanut butter. Protruding from the opened refrigerator was a cute behind, covered by baggy yellow pajama bottoms, wiggling to the beat of the song being sung. “Shot through the heart and you’re to blame, you give love a bad name.”

The off-tune singing stopped, but that perfectly rounded bottom continued to wiggle. “Pickles… pickles. Surely there are pickles in this huge refrigerator. Maybe some of those sweet little gherkins. Oh, look, cottage cheese. You give love a bad name…” The off-tune singer extracted a container from the crowded contents of the refrigerator, absently reaching out to set it on the counter.

Sneaking up behind her in his stocking feet, he placed a hand on the edge of the open door of the refrigerator and leaned over her bent body.

She moved a pitcher of orange juice. “Okay, pickles, where are you hiding?”

“Check behind the milk.”

Rachel yelped and spun around, her hand to her heart. Her big blue eyes opened impossibly wide. “You! Wha…what are you doing here?”

He held out his hand. “Hello, Rachel. I’m Storm Masterson, Sunny’s twin brother.”

“You…you’re Sunny’s brother? Don’t you dare touch me.” She made a fist and had the audacity to shake it under his nose. He didn’t know whether to laugh or paddle that cute behind she’d been wiggling earlier. “You…you just keep your hands and your lips to yourself. You…you naked, kissing bandit.”
