Reader Friends –
I am so excited to
reveal the covers for my next series. Aren’t they gorgeous?
An edgy romantic
suspense set in in Baltimore, MD (one of my favorite cities) this series revolves
around a foster family – a thief, a killer, a liar, and a stranger – who are
dragged into the fight against a violent threat in their city. This battle will
test their family, their futures, and their hard-won personal honor. And in
midst of the chaos, they’ll meet the people who will become the reason they
fight – for their lives and for the love that makes it all worthwhile.
I can’t even tell you
how excited I am to bring this series to you but it gets even better! I’ve
partnered with TOGETHER WE RISE, a group dedicated to helping foster kids all
over the country. They provide duffle bags to kids in the system (no more
carrying around their belongings in garbage bags), bikes for kids who’ve aged
out of the system to help them get to jobs and school, and scholarships to help
them continue their education. I’m proud to pledge a portion of the net
royalties of each book in this series to this amazing group and their support
of kids in foster care. You can check them out
www.togetherwerise.org.
This series will hit
your e-readers in February, May, July, and October 2018 . . . you can add the first
book to your Goodreads TBR shelf.
xxRobin

A Thief. A Killer. A Liar. A Stranger.
When it comes to love. . . never say never.
Baltimore, Maryland
Billionaire philanthropist and businessman, George Tarras,
was not a man who tolerated excuses of any kind. Not from himself. Not from his
employees and not his son. When sixteen-year-old Alek indulged in a little
youthful hacking of government websites and theft, George decided to let him
fully experience the consequences of his actions: two weeks in a juvenile
facility and one year of community service.
Always one to lead by example, George volunteered during
this time at the local community center and got to know the three youths who
befriended his son: a thief, a grifter, and a killer. In spite of their pasts
he saw something special in all of them: hope and a future full of promise.
By the end of that fateful year, George had put into motion
the opportunity to change their lives if they dared to take it. A gift—freely
given—but carrying responsibility and consequences.
But, what he really gave them was the one thing they all
needed the most…a family.
Brothers and a sister—they would do anything to protect each
other.
But, danger is coming. Secrets and lies will test their
bonds, challenge their courage, and test their definition of family and love.
To win, they will have to resurrect their pasts and revisit
demons buried long ago.
To survive, they will have to rely on bonds formed not by
blood but by loyalty.
To love, they will have to risk everything.

NEVER LOVE A THIEF
Book One
Stealing is
easy. Love is dangerous.
Rescued from the streets at sixteen, former thief, Carmen
“Mina” Salazar, is a law-abiding citizen who no longer indulges in her favorite
pastime: freeing the wealthy from the burden of their belongings. Now Mina spends
her days and nights running St. Nick’s, her bar in the Fell’s Point section of
Baltimore. Abandoned by her father for reasons she doesn’t understand, trust
doesn’t come easily for Mina. But a sexy, dangerous cop in her bar with a reckless
proposition tempts her to take a chance.
The son of a former Baltimore police officer, FBI Special
Agent Declan McGregor has spent his entire life trying to outrun the scandal of
being the son of a drunk, dirty cop. But years of undercover work and living in
the bowels of the dirtiest of organized crime networks has left him with a dead
partner and relief he can only find at the bottom of a bottle.  The man in the mirror looks a lot like his
old man and a failed marriage and crumbling career testify to just how close to
the bottom he really is.
Declan wants retribution for the death of his partner and
Mina is the key. When her long-lost father turns up in the bed of the head of
the mob responsible for the murder, Declan offers Mina the one thing she can’t
pass up: the chance to find out why her father left her. All she has to do is
what she does best . . . break, enter and steal her way into the inner circle
of the syndicate. Danger fuels their intense attraction and soon the lines
between revenge and lust are blurred by emotion and tested by betrayal. When lives
are in the balance, there is only one question . . . is it ever safe to love a
thief?

Release: Burn in Hail by Lani Lynn Vale 

Title: Burn in Hail
Series: Hail Raisers #3
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Romance Suspense
Release Date: November 15, 2017

“There is no shortage of danger and suspense in the lives of these badasses and I’m enjoying the hail out of getting to know them better.” – iScream Book Blog


“Yep I am totally hooked on this series.” – You Can’t Resista Dirty Book Blog


“Once again Lani Lynn Vale delivers a book that pulls you in from the very first page and doesn’t let you go!” – Britt Red Hatter Book Blog

One look at the sixteen-year-old, prim and proper town goody-two-shoes, Hennessy Hanes, and Tate Casey knows he’s in trouble. He knows he should stay away from the preacher’s daughter, but there’s something about her he’s drawn to, and he can’t resist the pull.


The more he gets to know her, the more he realizes that something isn’t right. He may not be able put his finger on what it is, but he’s determined to find out what’s going on with the girl with the haunted eyes.

Tate didn’t anticipate that someone else would be just as determined to keep Hennessy’s nightmare a secret, and he never realizes just how far that person is willing go to keep those skeletons in the closet until it’s too late.

With the very real threat of jail time hanging over his head, Tate leaves without a backwards glance at the town or the girl. The problem is that out-of-sight doesn’t necessarily mean out of mind, and it’s Tate who’s now haunted by his decision and memories of Hennessy.

***

Hennessy Hanes knows better than anyone that not everything is always as it appears to be. After years of being on the receiving end of her squeaky-clean preacher father’s abuse, she seizes an opportunity to leave it all behind and runs.

Her only regret is that in walking away she loses any chance with the one person who tried to save her.

***

Fast forward ten years, and they’re both back where they started. 

Tate was never a good boy, and it turns out that the man he’s now grown into isn’t all that much better. Anger is a living, breathing part of him, and there’s a court order forcing him to seek help from the one person he’s never forgotten.

Hennessy never thought she’d see Tate Casey again, and certainly not on her couch. But now it’s her turn to save him, and there are rules she must follow as his psychologist, not to mention a court order instructing her to help him manage his anger. If she doesn’t follow those rules, he’ll end up back in jail. 

Tate Casey has never been a man who followed the rules, and Hennessy is no longer the straight-laced, timid preacher’s daughter she once was. 

His hands may be tied, so it looks like for the first time in Hennessy’s life, she’ll be the one breaking the rules for the chance to finally get what she’s always wanted. Him.


I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 8, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.

SYNOPSIS

Law student Beth Dreymon is out of money and struggling hard. If she wants to finish her degree, she’s going to have to earn some money and fast. When she learns of an exciting opportunity—playing chess with New York’s most elusive billionaire—the offer sounds too good to be true. Reassured the offer is legit, Beth gets her game face on and prepares to geek out…

 

Only, when she steps foot into Raphael North’s luxurious penthouse, the rulebook goes flying out of the floor-to-ceiling windows. North is beautiful and damaged—a terrible temptation—and he has his sights set on winning Beth over. He’s just a job, though. A job Beth needs in order to make ends meet. If she plans on making her life in New York work, she needs to keep her eye on the prize. The road to hell is paved with good intentions, however, and it isn’t long before Beth finds herself entangled in Raphael’s world of dark desire.

 

Captor.

Curator.

Lover.

Enigma.

 

Beth should run from the devastatingly attractive blue-eyed devil, but Mr North has other ideas…and he’s about to make his next move.

 

 

 

 

 

EXCERPT

Raphael North stands on the other side of the abnormally thick glass. He’s dressed in a plain dark blue t-shirt, and a pair of washed out blue jeans. His feet are completely bare. His hair is even darker than it was in his picture, if that’s at all possible. Almost curly, too. It’s then that I realize it’s wet—he must have just gotten out of the shower. There are small dark patches on his t-shirt where water has obviously soaked through the material.
He turns those startling vivid green eyes on me and I’m breathless all over again. It feels like I’m tumbling over some steep cliff face, a weightless sensation turning my stomach over as I fall. Inside, I’m back to wanting to flee the building. Externally, I’m praying to deities of faiths and religions all over the world that I don’t look like I’m about to slump in an unconscious mess on the floor right in front of him. My top lip begins to twitch—something that only happens when I’m really, really anxious. Without thinking, I press my fingertips to my mouth, as if I can put a halt to the twitching by touch alone. A strange look passes over Raphael’s face. A slight movement at the corner of his mouth. I can’t decide if it’s displeasure or amusement. Either way, the reaction is fleeting, barely noticeable at all, and then his face is a blank mask again. He places his hand on a curved silver handle on the other side of the door, and then pulls it toward him, opening it. There are no barriers now. Nothing standing between myself and a man whispered and gossiped about by an entire city. Screw that, an entire nation. I’m in an enviable position right now, but I’d gladly thank the universe if the ground opened up and swallowed me whole.
The first words Raphael North speaks to me will haunt me until the day I die. He angles his head ever so slightly to one side, then says, “Your toenail polish is chipped, Ms. Dreymon.”
Lord have mercy. His voice is deep but soft. It has no hard edges, but at the same time his tone is overflowing with self-confidence and command.
“I’m sorry, I…wasn’t aware of your no-shoe policy.”

Audio Review: The Learning Hours(How To Date A Douchbag, Book 3) by Sara Ney 

He’s not a douchebag;

but that doesn’t stop his friends from

turning him into one.

 

MY FRIENDS WANT ME TO GET LAID.

So much so that they plastered my ugly mug all over campus, in bold printed letters:

Are you the lucky lady who’s going to break our roommate’s cherry?

Him: socially awkward man with average-sized penis looking for willing sexual partner. You: must have pulse. Text him at: 555-254-5551

The morons can’t even spell. And the texts I’ve been receiving are what wet dreams are made of. But I’m not like these douchebags, no matter how hard they try to turn me into one.

THIS ISN’T THE KIND OF ATTENTION I WANT.

One text stands out from hundreds. One number I can’t bring myself to block. She seems different. Hotter, even in black and white.

 

However, after seeing her in person, I know she’s not the girl for me. But my friends won’t let up—they just don’t get it. Douchebags or not, there’s one thing they’ll never understand: GIRLS DON’T WANT ME.

Especially her.

He’s seated at a table in the far corner when I spot him from the door. He’s not hard to miss—not with his purple t-shirt in a sea of black and yellow, and wavy mussed hair.

He’s slouching, hunched over his table.

Defeated. Tired.

My stomach rolls with nerves, nerves that have me rooted to the spot in the doorway, watching him.
Just watching.

For the entire four minutes I stand here, he sits immobile, studying his laptop, eyes moving along the screen, completely transfixed by whatever he’s reading.

Learning.

“Just go over there,” I whisper to myself, blowing out a puff of pent-up air.

I put one foot in front of the other and begin toward him, spine ramrod straight, steeling myself, prepared for another argument.

Twenty feet.

Fifteen.

Eight.

Two.

“Hi.”

No reply.

“Do you mind if I sit here?” I lay my hand on the back of the wooden chair across from him, intending to pull it out.

He stiffens but doesn’t lift his head. “Yes I mind.”

“Would you mind if I sat at the table next to you?” I’m pushing his buttons, looking for a reaction, but he only spares me a brief glance.

Shrugs. “Free country.”

I bite my lip to hide a smile, glad he didn’t tell me to take a hike…

Rhett has all the makings of a true southern gentleman. Kind, respectful and an accent that can make you melt. In trying to better his life, Rhett keeps getting handed a bad deal on every hand. Yet with all the crap he deals with he remains respectful and surprised me on many levels. Rhett doesn’t have a single clue as to how good of a man he is. That is one of many thing that made me very much like Rhett. 


Laurel took a bit to grow on me. Beautiful, confident and not to be judged by her cover. At first she came off as a bit conceded. As I got to know Laurel I realized there is a side of her I didn’t foresee. She is kind and caring in a way I didn’t realize she had in her. Laurel is not my favorite but I don’t dislike her. 


The Learning Years was a surprise of a listen. Sara Ney has some solid writing skills. I’m not much of a NA reader but this one I found very entertaining. Rhett is worth the read alone. The amount of sexual tension between Laurel and Rhett is pretty amazing. A slow burn, truly get to know each other kind of slow burn build up. There are some events of the book that run close to a line of this I don’t tolerate in my reading but I will say I loved how the hero of this tale showed what a true man can be. 


The dual narration of Josh Goodman and Muffy Newtown is amazing. I truly believe together they have given a depth to The Learning Years that I feel I would have not gotten had I read the book instead of listening! Josh and Muffy made me feel what was going on within The Learning Years.

Excerpt: Sleeper by Lexi Blake 

 

 

When Neil’s past catches up to him, Kelsey must choose between her new family and an old love…

With tensions rising between the Council and demonkind, Kelsey finds herself investigating a series of murders that threaten the fragile truce between them. If she can’t stop these killings soon, they could ignite a fire sure to burn the supernatural world down.

Unfortunately for her, Kelsey’s problems don’t stop with a pile of dead halflings. Her connection with Marcus is frayed at best, and Gray hasn’t been heard from in months. Her only semblance of peace comes from a new man in her life. When Gray storms back into the picture, her love life goes from incredibly complicated to apocalyptic.

Just as Kelsey begins to unravel the mystery, the forces of Heaven decide to take an interest in her actions. Outclassed with these powers in play, Kelsey knows that one misstep could leave the human and supernatural worlds in ashes.

“Your Highness, please back away. In fact, it would be best if you left the room altogether.” Felix put himself between me and Roberts. “Kelsey, I need you to push her down. Push her back down for a few moments. Marcus will be back soon and he’s going to take care of you. Being around those angels unsettled you. I don’t know if you noticed, but at the end of the meeting, your ward fell off. You didn’t have it on when Oliver shook your hand. He’s unbalanced and now you are, too. It’s like a contagion for someone like you. Oliver’s illness has called up your inner wolf and she’s angry.”

“Perhaps if I touch her,” Henri began. “I’m an academic. I don’t have the same connection she has with Marcus, but I might be able to help.”

“I’m not unbalanced.” It didn’t matter that my hands were shaking and they had been ever since I’d left the angels behind. “I’m going to talk to the wolf whether you like it or not. He’s been handling silver. It’s the only reason his hands wouldn’t have healed. Even then, a couple of hours would have done it. Unless the freaking silver he held came straight from Heaven. What about it, Roberts? How did you spend last night?”

The wolf was shaking his head. “I don’t know.”

That wasn’t an answer I was willing to accept. I was about to explain that to everyone when Chad stepped up and got in my face.

“I’m taking him out of here now,” Chad explained. “You’ll let me or we’re going to have trouble.”

I was ready for trouble. I was fairly sure I grinned, the idea of fighting a vamp lifting my spirits high. For the first time in what felt like hours, I went still. “You’re not going anywhere.”

Chad turned, his shoulders squaring, and I felt the world begin to bend around me. Chad belongs to one of the rarest classes of vampire—the magicians. As far as I knew, he was the only one walking the night at this time. He could form illusions so real you could taste food, feel imaginary rain on your skin, utterly believe whatever he wanted you to believe. I’d come up against him before. I might be one of the only people in the world who could see through him.

“It won’t work,” I said calmly as reality seemed to go dark and I heard the hissing of snakes all around me. “Do you not remember what happened the last time you pulled this shit on me? It took three tranqs to take me down. I don’t think you have those on you today.”

“I won’t need them.” Chad lifted his hand and the world shifted.

“Holy shit,” Casey said, climbing up on his desk. “What the fuck is happening?”

Snakes were happening. They were crawling from the woodwork, twitching and hissing my way. The fibers of the carpet beneath my feet lengthened and formed more snakes until they were a menacing mass, threatening everyone in the room.

Well, except for Chad, who had lifted his husband into his arms and prepared to take him away.

I let my wolf loose a bit. She knew this was all an illusion. That primitive part of my brain that Chad was accessing, the lizard brain that merely wanted to survive, was taken over by the wolf inside me. The alpha wolf didn’t want mere survival. She wanted to dominate, and that meant seeing past fear, trusting her instincts over what her eyes perceived.

The minute I opened the door, I felt her surge through me.

“I’m not letting you go. I can’t. I’m conducting a murder investigation, and I believe your boy here just became my prime suspect.” My hands twitched, eager for a fight, and I realized how long it had been since Marcus and I had thrown down.

Too long. Remember that whole thing about needing sex or violence to feed my inner wolf? Well, she was hungry and there was a whole lot of violence in Chad’s eyes.

I welcomed it. I could feel the need rise like a wave threatening to engulf me. This was why I had a trainer in the first place.

I gritted my teeth because Chad turned on his power. I could feel those fucking snakes climbing my legs and sinking their fangs into me. I refused to pay any attention to them despite the fact that I ached to rip the fuckers off me and toss them aside. To do that would have given the magician more power. If I bought into it, if I took my eyes off the only thing in the room that was real, I would end up like Casey, who was screaming like a girl.

“Let me pass, Hunter,” Chad said.

I stood my ground like the good Gandalf I was. Except I kind of wanted to shove my nonexistent staff right up old Chad’s ass, and then we would see if he sent snakes my way again.

The anger rose, rapid and quick, a flash fire coursing through me. I didn’t even realize when I had reached for the fireplace poker. All I knew was it was suddenly in my hands and I was going to use it. I could see myself shoving that piece of wrought iron right through his heart. It wouldn’t kill him. I would need wood for that, but then again, I didn’t want the fight over so quickly.

I raised the poker, ready to start.

“Stop it, both of you.” Donovan stepped in between us, but I didn’t care at that moment. I hadn’t felt this way in forever, not since Marcus had taken me in. I hadn’t been so out of control that I didn’t care who I hurt as long as I got to hurt someone. I would fuck up Donovan, too. All that mattered was seeing blood, feeling bones crush.

“You see, I told you she’s far gone and I can’t fix her anymore. I’ve called Gray and he has an idea of what to do,” Marcus was saying.

I wasn’t listening.

I started to bring the poker down Donovan’s way, but I was stopped in mid swing. A hand held my wrist, an arm going around my middle and hauling me back against muscled flesh.

“Stop it,” Trent growled in my ear. “You stand down right this second.”

Lexi Blake is a master at contemporary, but her paranormals are flippin awesome. 
Kelsey is nothing short of a kickass woman. She a Hunter, smart and takes no crap from anyone. She also possesses a caring nature and protects those she cares for. She an intense character and I loved every bit of her she struggled with love until she discovered who she truly is. Watching that play out is totally worth the read. 
Totally edge of your seat reading. Twists, turns, secrets revealed and mouth watering heat. Sleeper is great example of a book to get lost in. Amazing characters, a great mix of paranormal creatures and a well driven plot. Lexi Blake wonderfully gives reader an action packed read with humor, heat and too sweet moments. I so enjoy the world that Ms. Blake has created with the Thief Series.

Adriana Jensen is the woman to ask.
She’s lost too many people to count.
The one death that destroyed her the most
was her husband’s.
Only… he didn’t die.
What does one do when forced to walk away from his wife?
How much will it take to win her back?
How much?
Blake Jensen, Adriana’s estranged husband, is the man to ask.
He has one question to ask himself.
How much will it take for her to come back to me?

From those humble beginnings many years ago, and after many, many hours of study under some truly great coaches and teachers, he has developed a portfolio that includes multiple bestselling audiobooks, along with successful commercials, interviews, teasers, animation characters and the like.

4 Stars 

Blake tried to do the noble thing but it didn’t work out quite so noble. Causing two people heartache and turmoil. His loyalty and willingness are part of what make him the man that he is. Blake has a dirty, dirty mouth on his fine body. 
Adriana, the amount of strength this woman possesses and doesn’t realize is truly amazing. Many times over she could have been broken to the core and her keeps on living. Even though it hard, she finds a way. She broke but was never completely broken. 
Intensity emotional. Ms. Coopmans depth and detail to the tragic, raw and honest emotions of this breath catching tale are spot on. To the point of feeling them in your bones. Adriana and Blake have an unusual story but I loved how the complexities of their lives together and apart created a story I couldn’t stop listening to. My only issue was, there were a few flashback scenes that were hard to distinguish at first. Making me have to go back and listen. This doesn’t taking away for my rating. As this is something that happens with audios. 
Narrators Lacy Laurel & Logan McAllister brought every emotion front and center, allowing listeners to bond with the characters through their voices.  

 
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Lacy Laurel. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Q&A with Author Cathy Coopmans
  • Tell us about the process of turning your book into an audiobook.
  • I love the process. It can be crazy at times trying to match a voice with the characters you’ve grown to love. Once you find them, the fun begins.
  • Do you believe certain types of writing translate better into audiobook format?
    I don’t. Of course, we all have a certain type of format we love to write or read in. It honestly depends on what works for every individual.
  • Was a possible audiobook recording something you were conscious of while writing?
    Not at all.
  • How did you select your narrators?
    My lovely narrator found me. 😉 Not only did I fall in love with Lacy’s voice, I fell in love with her! She’s very passionate about her job. I’ve enjoyed bonding with her and look forward to producing more audio books for your reading pleasure! She’s good guys. Really good.
  • How closely did you work with your narrators before and during the recording process? Did you give them any pronunciation tips or special insight into the characters?
    Lacy and I worked very closely. She was on top of it throughout the entire process. Lacy and Logan sent me chapters to approve before they started. I knew they would do Blake and Adrianna right.
  • Were there any real life inspirations behind your writing?
    There’s always an inspiration behind every story I write.
  • How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for writing?
    If I become burned out, I stop and read. Take my mind off of my story completely.
  • Are you an audiobook listener? What about the audiobook format appeals to you?
    I’m an audio book listener in the car, while I’m working out or traveling.

The first in an all-new sexy contemporary romance series from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black.

But he never expects to share an irresistible chemistry with his beautiful new client.

Fame claimed Shealyn West suddenly and with a vengeance after starring in a steamy television drama, but it has come at the expense of her heart. Though she’s pretending to date a co-star for her image, a past mistake has come back to haunt her. With a blackmailer watching her every move and the threat of career-ending exposure looming, Shealyn hires Cutter to shore up her security, never imagining their attraction will be too powerful to contain.

As Shealyn and Cutter navigate the scintillating line between business and pleasure, they unravel a web of secrets that threaten their relationship and their lives. When danger strikes, Cutter must decide whether to follow his heart for the first time, or risk losing Shealyn forever.

FULL BLURB

CHERISH HARD

A Hard Play Novel by Nalini Singh

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh kicks off her new Hard Play contemporary romance series with a sizzling story that’ll leave you smiling…

Sailor Bishop has only one goal for his future – to create a successful landscaping business. No distractions allowed. Then he comes face-to-face and lips-to-lips with a woman who blushes like an innocent… and kisses like pure sin.

Ísa Rain craves a man who will cherish her, aches to create a loving family of her own. Trading steamy kisses with a hot gardener in a parking lot? Not the way to true love. Then a deal with the devil (aka her CEO-mother) makes Ísa a corporate VP for the summer. Her main task? Working closely with a certain hot gardener.

And Sailor Bishop has wickedness on his mind.

As Ísa starts to fall for a man who makes her want to throttle and pounce on him at the same time, she knows she has to choose – play it safe and steady, or risk all her dreams and hope Sailor doesn’t destroy her heart.

☆☆☆☆☆☆

EXCERPT

Fuming, Ísa made sure to set the alarm system and lock up. Everyone else was already well into their summer vacation—the sole reason Ísa was here was because she hadn’t been able to work on her lesson plans at home.

Her upstairs neighbor was having repairs done to her bathroom that required banging and hammering.

Not all of it involved nails and wood.

Hopefully the repairs would be finished by now. There was only so much ecstatic orgasmic screaming that a single woman in online-dating purgatory could stand without being driven to violence.

She spotted the tan-colored gardening truck the instant she came down the front steps of the school’s imposing redbrick main building and turned left to head toward her car. The hot gardener had parked it right next to her zippy blue compact. The front of the truck had four doors with tinted windows while the large bed was piled with shovels and other manly tools as well as a huge sack of clippings.

His light brown T-shirt was hanging over the top of the tailgate.

Which meant he was still walking around topless somewhere around here.

“Get in your car, Ísa,” she muttered to herself, well aware what would happen if she came face-to-face with that delicious hunk of manhood. Because while she might’ve conquered her shyness, she knew her limits.

Confronted by a bare-chested man who made her ovaries explode, she’d turn bright pink, lose her ability to form speech, and end of story. “Oh—”

She would’ve bounced off that sculpted chest if he hadn’t grabbed her by the hips.

“Hey, sorry,” he said with a startled smile that lit up the dazzling blue of his eyes. “I didn’t see you.”

“No, um, my fault.” It looked as if he’d crouched down to check one of his tires or something else but had risen to his feet right when she swung around to get into her car. And God, his skin was so hot and smooth and he was so tall and his shoulders were so broad and her mouth was drying up. The stuttering would begin at any moment.

The same stuttering Suzanne had mocked relentlessly when they were fourteen. Until Ísa had gone silent around everyone except the few friends she trusted. And now that horrible, ugly-hearted girl was getting married, having a baby, getting a happily-ever-after. Added to which, Ísa’s mother was jerking her on a string like she was a marionette, and her last “date” had asked her to call him Woofy and reward him with doggy biscuits.

The blue of the gardener’s eyes flickered with a hot flame.

And she thought… I know him. But before she could follow that faint thread, all the fury and hurt and frustration and sheer aggravation in Ísa ignited into an incandescent inferno.

She went mad.

Grabbing the hot gardener’s beautiful face in her hands, she said, “I want to kiss you.”

A wicked grin. “Go on ahead.”

And Ísa pressed her lips to his.
