Mid Week Tease – Honesty and Punishments

Click to see all the Mid Week Teases here at SJsWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the amazing Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

My first book, Taking Chances turns 1 on Saturday! I’m going to tease again from this first book in my Love Projects series.

In this tease, Jake is answering several of Lydia’s questions.

____________

“You probably have your choice of girls who already know what they’re doing.”

“Just because a woman has similar appetites doesn’t make her a match.”

“Oh.” A shiver shook her body. “Sorry, I was just so nervous. I’m surprised I got it all out.”

“That will be a problem.”

“What?”

“We must be honest with each other. Lesson number two. I promise to listen and watch for what your body needs, but you must be honest with me, or this will never work. Holding back will get you punished.”

“Punished?”

“Yes, Lydia, I’m looking forward to punishing you.”

“Is it okay if I don’t ask about punishments? My head is full right now, and I still haven’t figured out why I liked you spanking me.”

“You can put off the conversation, which is fine because we do have a lot to do today, but you are only delaying the inevitable.”

____________

Jake is the Master at calming one worry and lighting up another. Oh boy. :) I’ll share a bit more from my birthday baby this weekend, but you can also pick up this hot love story from your favorite retailer and find out everything whenever you want.

Taking Chances 200x300

Lydia’s father walked away from her when she was eight. She’s struggled to not let him affect her, but fears she wasn’t loveable enough to make him stay. Jake wants to love one woman, but after scaring the last woman he met outside of the club, he doubts he deserves the right. She protects her heart by sticking with her fantasies and he lives by a set of rules that excludes women who choose a vanilla lifestyle.

The two will be kept in a conference room working together until their special project is complete. If Lydia and Jake hold tight to their bland lives, they’ll always yearn for love that is out of reach. Together they find common ground, passion, and a reason to take chances. Once they discover the grand possibilities of the love they desire, they find themselves in the very place they tried never to be again, facing unguaranteed loved.

She’s making audio interviews now and her first with Nicola Cameron can be found on Lilith’s site, here. It’s a lot of fun. But first, please let her introduce to you her 12th book. Enjoy! :)

_________________

I am very excited for “We Wander Far From Home”! It’s my first full length novel, and I’m very proud of the way it combines a nuanced love story with an old fashioned western adventure. I started this story in 2009 with the intention of submitting it to an anthology call, but the deadline flew by before I figured out how to finish it. I stuck it in a folder and forgot about it for a little over a year. Then I started taking it out every few months, writing another chapter here, doing some edits there and putting it away again. It didn’t really come together until January this year and I’m thrilled to see it published by Evernight!

Blurb

A crack shot best gal, a former criminal lover, a sudden ejection from everything he’s ever known, and the faintest taste of freedom. That’s what drives Will Kearny out of the comfort of a normal life and out into the Nebraska wilderness. Soon, the sweet, quiet dairy farmer from Minnesota is robbing stage coaches, knocking over banks and running off into the mountains to celebrate in Henry Fitzpatrick’s arms.  But winter’s coming on, the stage coach routes are drying up, and the law is onto them. Life on the edge is the only way Will and Henry can be together, but life on the edge is short. Can forbidden love survive in a harsh world?

Excerpt

He shifted closer to Henry’s body under the covers and realized that they were both naked. Had he really been so exhausted last night that he didn’t remember undressing? Or possibly being undressed? He set a hand to Henry’s chest, tracing a line down to Henry’s flat, red nipple. The contrasts of Henry were astonishing. The hills and valleys of his chest and shoulders, the gentle touches of his rough hands.

This man was a criminal.

And between him and Annie, they had made Will one, too.

Memories sparked from last night. Henry’s hand wrapped around Will’s, tugging him patiently into this room. Henry’s stubbled chin pressed to his face in an affectionate good night kiss that Will had barely been conscious enough to return.

So. Sweet. Affectionate. Beautiful. His.

But a criminal.

Well, Will supposed, you couldn’t have everything. He pressed his body against Henry’s, closing the small, cautious gap between them, and kissed the other man. He slid his hands out of Henry’s and wrapped his arms around Henry’s back, running his fingers over the ridges of muscle there.

Henry began to kiss him back slowly, as though not quite woken from a dream, before his loose grip tightened and his hands began to wander up Will’s body.

“Morning,” Henry murmured.

“Afternoon, actually, I think,” Will replied.

“Mhm,” Henry responded disinterestedly as he resumed the kiss, sliding his tongue past Will’s lips like walking through an open door. He took control of the kiss. Eased his body on top of Will’s. Will sighed happily as he sunk down into the feather mattress under Henry’s solid weight. Despite Annie’s assurances that there were other men like him, Will hadn’t really let himself believe it until the night Henry kissed him in the barn, only weeks ago.

The way that Henry’s skin moved over Will’s, the heavy scent of him dominating Will’s senses, made it easier for Will to concentrate on his rewards rather than his sins.

Will reached up to take Henry’s arm in his hand.

Henry pulled away, caught Will’s hand and pushed it back down to the mattress. “Shhhh…lie back.”

Will watched as Henry’s hands ran over his chest. Down his stomach, palms flat and warm. He traced his fingers down into the grooves between Will’s hips and his groin, where the skin was soft and sensitive, unaccustomed to being touched.

Will pushed his hips up against Henry’s hands, asking for more. He’d been ready back in the cabin a few nights ago, he didn’t need all this careful touching.

Henry’s fingers slid back up his chest, rubbing and pinching his nipples.

Will felt his breathing getting heavier. His hips worked up against empty air. He looked down between Henry’s legs and swallowed. Henry’s cock was standing between his legs now, thick and flush and full.

And out of reach.

“Look at you,” Henry murmured, rolling the bud of Will’s nipple between his thumb and forefinger, every touch making the nerves more sensitive.

The sluggish warmth in Will’s belly started to coil, not urgent yet, but threatening to become so. “Henry, please.”

Henry grinned, and patted Will’s chest as though he was going to stop teasing. Then he dropped his mouth down to Will’s chest and took a reddened nipple into his mouth.

The warmth in Will’s stomach tightened suddenly. The steady hum of arousal in his body spiked. He dug his fingers into Henry’s shoulders and bucked his hips up against nothing when the grip made Henry suck harder.

Will reached for his cock while Henry rolled the bud between his teeth and flicked his tongue over it. Henry caught Will’s hand and brought it back up to his shoulders.

“Henry, I don’t wanna wait no more,” Will moaned as Henry let his nipple go with a loud, wet “pop.”

“Yeah,” Henry said. His voice was heavy and rough and his eyes were dark with lust. His gaze ran over Will’s body like another caress and Will shivered. “I won’t make you.”

Will’s breath caught.

Henry moved off his thighs, arranging himself so that he was kneeling between Will’s legs. He slipped his hands underneath Will’s knees, calloused hands tickling at the sensitive skin underneath the joint. Will felt too exposed as Henry lifted his feet up off the mattress and spread his legs wider, so wide that his toes poked over either side of the mattress.

Henry arched down, kissing Will. Will set his hands back to Henry’s shoulders, letting himself stay open under Henry’s increasingly insistent tongue, kissing back with everything he could muster while Henry turned the kiss dirty and breathtaking. He finally settled his body down against Will’s, pressing his rock hard cock into Will’s body, rubbing against him until Will moaned against his lips.

“No more interruptions. Door’s locked. Hell, I even jammed a chair under the handle.” He dropped his face to Will’s neck, sucking at a tendon, then worrying his teeth against it. “Even if the goddamn law comes knocking, even if they break down the door, I’m gonna make you come before they cart us away.”

Cover Reveal

ColorsofUsCover

Book Title: Colors of Us

Author: Sandra Bunino

Genre: Contemporary Romance/New Adult

Release Date: August 26, 2014

Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions

Synopsis

Everything she knew to be true fell apart. Then fell apart again…

Michelle Willis is running from her past. What better place to hide than in the anonymity of New York City. Finding refuge in a tiny SoHo art gallery, she rebuilds her life one painting at a time.

A wrong turn sends Hunter McAvery on a crash course with disaster. He fights his own demons by following his big brother’s lead – drinking and bed-hopping his way through Manhattan.

A glance at Michelle’s self-portrait triggers emotions Hunter can’t tamp down. Driven to meet the artist, he discovers a fiery chemistry as their lives collide. But when their past threatens to tear them apart, can their love survive?

excerpt

“I think pink is your color. It looks great against your dark hair.” Reaching past her shoulder, he curled a strand of her hair between his fingers and tugged gently before letting it fall onto her shoulder.

Meeting his gaze, she smiled. “Thanks.” Michelle wasn’t used to compliments. It’d been her goal to fade into the crowd and not to call attention to herself. But her self-imposed rules seemed to float away around Hunter McAvery.

Returning her smile, he continued the lesson. “After you slide your hands into the opening, you’ll wind the long strap around your fingers and wrist like this.” Holding her fingers in his hand, he wound the dangling strap around her palm and over her knuckles. “You want to protect the part of your hand that meets the bag.”

He stepped closer as he slipped the strap around the base of her thumb. When he brushed his fingertips against the sensitive area just below the fleshy part of her palm, a shiver shot up her arm and traveled to her belly. His warm breath ghosted her face as he circled the end of the strap around her wrist and secured the Velcro tab. Before she knew it, strong fingers captured her left hand and guided her arm to the warmth between their bodies. She itched to graze her fingers along his muscled chest, capturing his heat with her palm. Her gaze bounced to his neck and stubbled jaw, which clenched as he slid the other wrap over her hand. Slowly wrapping her other wrist, he secured the strap and held both of her gloved hands in his. “Make a fist,” he said huskily.

Tightening her hands into a ball, she tucked her thumb around the outside of her fingers like he showed her at the gym.

He squeezed her fists. “They look good. You’re a badass.”

Michelle snorted. “A badass in pink.”

“Let’s see what you got. Show me some upper cuts. Right here.” He tapped his abs.

“You want me to hit you?” She giggled.

“Sure. I can take it.”

Turning her palms up, she made a fist and alternated soft punches to his belly. His rock-hard belly. Each strike made her aware of how alive he made her feel. The force of impact sent ripples up his tight shirt, awakening the planes of his muscular form. She gulped back the desire to open her fists and run her fingertips along the line of each thick muscle.

His hands came to rest on her forearms, halting her movement. The pads of his thumbs stroked the sensitive skin near the inside of her elbow causing a delicious shiver up her arm. Michelle’s eyes met his. The fire brewing in his darkened gaze drew her in. Hunter stepped between her legs, nudging her back against the wall next to the mural. She closed her eyes and choked back a groan, wanting—no, needing—to grind her heat on his leg. Raising her arms above her, he pinned them against the wall on either side of her head. His scent flooded her senses as she lifted her chin to close the gap between them.

“I’m trying like hell not to kiss you.” Hunter straightened his back but didn’t loosen his grip on her arms.

Her skin prickled from the nearness of his body. She let her gaze drift to his lips. “Why?” she whispered.

He blew a slow breath between his teeth. “Nothing good would come of it. I’m not capable of giving or feeling… or offering anything much to you.” He shook his head but he didn’t move from her body.

“I don’t believe that.” Michelle wriggled her arms from his grasp. Her fingertips lingered on his corded forearms, which flexed under her touch. Easing a trail toward his shoulders, her fingers reminded her of a paintbrush’s first dab of color on a fresh canvas. She’d always believed each canvas had a personality of its own, and it was the symphony of the brush, artist, and canvas that created the work of art. She wanted to explore the blank canvas of Hunter McAvery.

She studied his arms, still caging her in. Protecting her. Wanting her. Her eyes met his gaze. He stared at her, unmoving, but a spark burned in his eyes. She held her breath, afraid to break his trance. Her palms smoothed over his shoulders and down his chest, stopping at the center of his ribs. Pushing into the muscles of his chest, she felt the strong beat of his heart on her fingers. “Kiss me, Hunter.” Raising her eyebrows, she dared to look him in the eyes, almost afraid of what she’d see.

“You don’t understand. You’re too… good.” He averted his gaze.

“Maybe you should let me decide what’s good for me.” She moved closer, his breath burned hot on her face, and he squeezed his eyes closed.

“Michelle….”

Her hands traveled up his chest and rested on the bulk of his strong shoulders. Pulling him in, her breasts molded into his chest and, finally, he crashed his lips down on hers. She met every stroke of his tongue as her fingers raked through the ends of his hair. Moaning into his mouth, she straddled his muscular thigh as warmth flooded her sex. She’d never felt more alive.

His hand grazed her cheek before taking her chin between his thumb and index finger and pulling away from their kiss. He tipped his forehead to hers, his raspy breath hot on her mouth. “Shit.”

Michelle widened her eyes. “What?” she whispered.

“You. Me. This just can’t happen. Not now. Not like this.”

Mid Week Tease – The First Side Project

Click to see all the Mid Week Teases here at SJsWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the amazing Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

Next week, I’ll be celebrating my very first book birthday. Taking Chances turns 1 on August 23rd! So, I’m sharing from this first book in my Love Projects series.

In this tease, you’ll find Jake working hard to keep his lust for Lydia under control. While on his way to take a cold shower in his boss’s office, he finds Simon, the hero from the second book in the series, Taking Courage.

____________

Her scent filled his mind. He could practically taste her already. She was off limits, something that needed to be left alone. Maybe he should take a quick, cold shower in Keller’s office. Keller would understand. Damn Keller and his suggestions. The man kept denying his match-maker moniker, but Jake wanted to blame him all the same. He needed to stand strong, Jake couldn’t let go of his rules.

He stormed into Keller’s office, with a chip on his shoulder. Running up the stairs had only fueled his fury.

“Hey there, Jake, how’s it going with the little betty?” Keller said.

“Just great.”

“Your new side project is Jake?” Simon sat casually in one of the guest chairs.

“I don’t have side projects,” Keller said unconvincingly.

“Whatever, I should report you for this,” Jake said, pacing back and forth.

“What did I do?” Keller threw his hands in the air, but the smirk on his face gave him away.

“Shit, I’m sorry, Jake.” Simon turned his attention back to Keller. “Who did you select for our boy here?”

“You stay out of this. I thought we stood together on standing alone.”

“Sorry, I got caught in the action. Now, don’t leave me hangin’. Who is it?”

“Gees, it’s Lydia, okay? And you know what?” Jake turned his attention to Keller and pointed to Simon. “Do me a favor. Pick on him next.”

____________

And there you have it. That was my clue that Simon would be the hero for book two. Come back next week and I’ll share another teaser from my birthday baby. You can also pick up this hot love story from your favorite retailer and find out everything whenever you want.

Inside Look with Elodie Parkes author of The Summer Heat

I’m super excited to have Elodie Parkes back with her new release, The Summer Heat. I love Elodie’s books. She writes strong intriguing characters and they’re not to be missed! She’s brought a bunch of cool tidbits about her story and a yummy excerpt too. Enjoy. :)

_______

Thank you for inviting me to your blog to talk about my new Evernight Publishing release, ‘The Summer Heat’.

A ménage romance, two guys and a girl, this is erotic, contemporary romance that sizzles.

thesummerheat3The Summer Heat

When lifelong friends Nate and Evan watch the arrival of a new neighbor, they never expect to find their friendship rocked by the lovely Annabel who moves into the empty house next door.

Annabel likes both Nate and Evan the moment she meets them. As they all grow close, will she be forced to choose between these gorgeous men?

Inspiration behind the story:

The inspiration came from a tree being cut down in the communal gardens where I currently live. I didn’t even see it felled, but I was immensely saddened as this was a healthy young tree. In my story, the gorgeous guys are cutting down a diseased tree in their garden, and that’s how they see Annabel move in next door.

My characters:

Annabel: She’s ready for love and looking for someone after her last miserable relationship. I imagine her surprise when she meets Nate and Evan, and has strong attraction to both of them.

Nate: He’s gentle, kind, sensually sexy, very good looking. Friends mean a lot to him. You can feel safe and loved with him, but boy do you know when he’s made love to you.

Evan: Strong, alpha, hides his emotions, but sex just drips from his gorgeous body. He calls you babe and takes charge, all the while your soft skin under his fingertips blows his mind.

Read an excerpt:

18+ rating

They got through her front door before they leapt on each other.

Nate didn’t know how they got their clothes off. The haze of lust at the deliciousness of her kisses fogged his brain. They were in Annabel’s living room, and he was already pounding into her.

Her lips brushed against his ear. Her whispers and moans mingled with his moaning.

He held her under the ass and fucked her hard as she clung to him.

Her hands on his shoulders, she met his thrusts with her hips raised.

His orgasm started with his balls tightening so that he thrust into her as deep as he could. Into his heart dropped the need to make sure she came. He slowed down, kissed her lips, nibbled down her neck, and sucked there.

She bucked her hips to his.

He ground his cock on her clit as he slid into her again.

She moaned into his mouth.

Her pussy clenched around his cock as she pressed her body against him, and he knew she was coming. It filled him with love. He didn’t need to pound into her to come. His orgasm flowed over him as he kissed her. It buckled his knees and weakened his thighs as the ripples of sensation jerked his cock inside her. Nate groaned as Annabel’s tongue touched the tip of his. He pressed his stomach against her enjoying the pressure and satin texture of her skin on his. A melting sensation drifted over him, and he rested his forehead on her shoulder.

“How do you feel?” He whispered against her ear.

She made a little sound, not quite a word.

He interpreted it as pleasure. That’s what it sounded like to him, as if she’d tasted something good. He lifted his head and kissed her tenderly. “Next time, maybe we can slow down, but I needed that so bad.”

Meet My Character Blog Tour – Simon Young

Big thank you to my friend and fabulous writer, Anne Lange for inviting me on this tour. Her books are not to be missed and I’m looking forward to her next release, Sliding into Home.

taking-courage300x200I’d like to introduce you to Simon Young, the hero for my recent release, TAKING COURAGE. I first met Simon while writing the first book in my Love Projects series, Taking Chances.

When he was a little boy he found a second home at his local gym. Through the discipline of his training, he found comfort and control. When he later found the life style of BDSM, it felt like a homecoming. He took to it with the same discipline he developed in the gym, devoting himself to his training and eventually the training of others.

Many of us come from loving homes with parents that encourage us and help us to become the best we can be. Simon didn’t have any of that. He is who he is because he wanted it. He fought for it, literally. So, when he crosses paths with someone who hasn’t learned some of the basics in life, he has no mercy. No excuses allowed, you’re responsible for your own actions.

Simon maybe a cut and dry character in some ways, but with a big heart just asking to be stolen. He wants love in his life. He wants to find the one person who can understand who he is and love him whole. The last submissive he fell for actually was in love with someone else and was using Simon. The ordeal cut him deeply.

When I set out to write his story, I was tempted to hand him love on a silver platter. I wanted him to find something easy. I knew he’d love my heroine completely, but I couldn’t go easy. Not because I wanted to make it hard on him, but because I wanted him to see someone fight for him. I wanted him to know he was wanted even when a future seemed impossible.

I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little bit about Simon. You’ll see him again in the next two Love Projects books. You’ll get to see the love of his life again too and see their love deepen and grow.

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from the second in my Love Projects series, TAKING COURAGE.

LAST WEEK: Janna found the courage to ask Simon to be her trainer. THIS WEEK: Simon has said, yes. Yes! :D I’ve skipped over a couple sweet nuggets to give you his first rule. Enjoy.

“First, no more panties.”

“At the club?”

“Anywhere. Since you don’t want to wait, while you are my trainee, I want you as aware of your body as possible. Your panties are an unnecessary barrier.” Holding the attention of a willing submissive was like a drug to Simon. Her gaze told of her concentration, but it was her sweet musk filling the air that would do him in. “Take care of your things here, then remove those panties, and get your ass to my office. You have five minutes.”

What’s going to happen in five minutes?! :) I know the answer and so can you. Pick up your own copy of TAKING COURAGE and find out everything today.

taking-courage400x267BLURB:

Janna’s ready to make over her life and get out from under the controlling thumb of her father. She doesn’t want another failed arranged marriage. She’s ready to do whatever it takes for the career she wants, enter the lifestyle she craves, and to earn the trust and love of the man that has captured her heart, but heartbreak and career hiccups seem to be her destiny.

Simon’s still recovering after his last submissive lied her way into his life. He’s not ready for Janna and how she pushes against his prejudices. He needs to decide if he’s willing to lose her or if he’ll fight for her love and submission.

Mid Week Tease – Ms. Mary Inspires

Click to see all the Mid Week Teases here at SJsWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the lovely Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

I’m sharing a bit more from my story, Unravel Me in the new Evernight Publishing Anthology, Executive Assistant.

Last week: Colin got Mary to admit what she wanted. This week: I’ve skipped his orders to strip through her presentation and his inspection of her to find this little tease. Enjoy.

____________

“So, you want to know how hard I spank?”

“Yes, Sir.” Warmth from her pussy reached the inside on her thigh.

“Since we only met today, I won’t be using restraints and I’ll even let you pick your apparatus.” He presented her with the room and her options. “Not matter what you choose, I promise to give you pleasure and not a lot of pain, at least not until we’ve had a much longer discussion.”

His wicked promise brought a tingle to her breasts and more moisture to her pussy. She rubbed her hands down her thighs and looked around the room. Immediately, she decided against the bed and the cross—both seemed too intimate—which left the spanking bench and the most comfortable exam table she’d ever seen. It wasn’t made out of cold metal. It appeared to be made out of the same wood as the other pieces in the room with coverings in padding and leather.

“You may take a closer look.”

“Thank you, Sir.” She walked to the table and confirmed her findings. “I like the coverings on your furniture.”

“Thank you, I’ll tell my friend.” When she looked back at him he added, “Besides the ergonomic furniture, he also builds for the dungeon.”

Colin had a confidence about him that brought an easy comfort to her senses. The pile of reasons for why she respected him grew. She looked back to the wall of toys and looked for the long narrow paddle she’d admired earlier, but it wasn’t there.

“Are you looking for this?” He held up the paddle. “You’ve inspired me, Ms. Mary.”

____________

She’s in for it now, oh boy. :D This will probably be my last teaser from Unravel Me, but you can always find out what happens next. Pick up this fabulous anthology from your favorite retailer and find out whenever you want.

Hot Summer Nights – A Hot Summer Anthology takes you to paradise

I may not be taking a nice long vacation this summer, but this hot new anthology makes me feel like I’m in paradise. I’m a fan of Kacey Hammell. So, I got my copy at Amazon and relaxed in my hammock. I’m so glad I did.

The stories may all take place in the same hot paradise, but they’re all so different. It’s a fab collection of hot romance. Definitely 5 star reads and I loved Kacey’s story, Layover.

It’s special treat day at SJs because Kacey gave me a little excerpt I can share with you today. Wahoo!!

Hot Summer Nights coverBlurb:

In these nine short stories by bestselling and award winning authors, passion ignites between people from all walks of life, with stories ranging from New Adult to Erotic Romance, and even a bit of Paranormal and Time Travel thrown in—after all the island itself has a mystical history, with mysteries and legends to explore. Lose yourself in the magic of the island … you’ll never want to go home again!

Layover by Kacey Hammell (Contemporary Romance)

Hand’s off. That’s Gemma Sands’ cardinal rule when it comes to dating co-workers. But she’d like to get her hands on Michael Harmon.

Michael has his own idea about where he’d like to put his hands. But Gemma’s steadfast rule means Michael simply admires from afar.
But when an unexpected layover on Dasia Island forces them to share tight quarters, they are unable to resist their passion, and finally surrender to every touch they need so desperately.

Snippet from Layover

© Kacey Hammell, 2014

“I’ve wanted to ask you out a million times, get to know you on a deeper level. I respect your rules, but I have to tell you, Gem … right now, here with you, my restraint is far out of reach.”

His gaze held hers. Heat moved between them, steaming up the edge of the glass on the balcony door. Gemma lifted her hands, inching them up over his chest. Michael’s breath hitched, the movement surprising him, and the heat of her palms scalding him. He stilled, his hands on her shoulders and waited—praying to any god who could hear him—for her to make the next move.

She stepped closer, head angled to accommodate the inches he stood above her, and stared up at him.

“I think you’ve restrained yourself exceptionally well,” she whispered, breathless. “And I think it’s time you are rewarded for it.”

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from the second in my Love Projects series, TAKING COURAGE.

LAST Snippet: Simon got his first glimpse of Janna the Project Manager. THIS WEEK: I’ve skipped over a bit. The meeting’s over and Simon has given Janna some well deserved praise. Their conversation has shifted back to how they met. Janna still needs a trainer …

“If you want me to train you, you are going to have to ask.” He waited for a bit. When she didn’t speak, he walked to the door. Smart girl. She’d probably thought better of asking him. She was better off with someone Charlie could find for her. He shoved off the ache the thought gave him.

“Would you train me, Sir?”

Way to go, Janna! She asked for what she wanted. I’m so proud. :D Now, do you think Simon will have the courage to accept? I know the answer and so can you! Pick up your own copy of TAKING COURAGE and find out everything today.

Janna’s ready to make over her life and get out from under the controlling thumb of her father. She doesn’t want another failed arranged marriage. She’s ready to do whatever it takes for the career she wants, enter the lifestyle she craves, and to earn the trust and love of the man that has captured her heart, but heartbreak and career hiccups seem to be her destiny.

Simon’s still recovering after his last submissive lied her way into his life. He’s not ready for Janna and how she pushes against his prejudices. He needs to decide if he’s willing to lose her or if he’ll fight for her love and submission.
