Enjoy!


“Come on now, up you go.” He prayed Nadia worked with him. If they played their cards right, he’d have her back in the main part of the club where she could make her exit.

“Thank you for giving me another chance, Sir.” She stood on shaky legs and pulled up her panties.

“You’re doing fine.” He caressed her cheek. She was the most precious thing in the world to him. It would kill him if his work ever touched her again. He’d have to determine the cause of her jealousy and do what he could to diminish any worries she had. That was a task for later. Right now, he needed to get her out of there. “I am looking forward to seeing you dance.” He opened the door and pulled her behind him.

“Not so fast, Mr. Fancy.” Bev stood in the hall and pointed a gun at them.

Early praise for

Desire Protected:

5 stars from Liz’s Reading Life: Desire Protected is a quick, sensual, heart pounding read that will have you desiring more.

5 stars from a reader, Tracy W: Another well done story from an author I come back to again and again.

5 stars from a reader, Doris O: Suspense, heat, and above all love. Read it, you won’t be disappointed.


Excerpt:

Coming here had been stupid. If she left quickly, Ethan would never know she’d been there.

A step inside and she knew she’d made the wrong decision.

Ethan stood and came at her. “What are you doing here?”

“Ah.” She pushed the door closed behind her and stayed put. “I’m ah…”

“How did you get in here?”

Ethan2.3“I took a cab. You’re busy. I’ll just get back in a cab and go home.” She turned around.

He stepped in behind her and placed his hand on the door above her head. “Don’t make another move.” He kicked her feet apart and pressed his body to hers.

She stared at the door. An ache rushed from her chest to the back of her throat, and then she heard a tiny little click.

He pulled her hair back and brought his lips to her ear. “They can still see us but our voices are blocked for thirty seconds.”

She had no idea what to say to him. Many times they discussed how dangerous it would be for her to get caught up in his business. “I’m sorry.” What a pathetic thing to say. She knew better.

“You followed me here?”

“I did.” Her stupid jealousy had gotten her here. She felt like a child. Maybe she should be punished like one. She tapped her head on the door.

“We’ll have a long talk about this when we get home.”

“I understand, Sir.” Her voice came out crackly.

“How did you find my room?”

“I may have told this second blonde woman I just started working here.” She wanted to crawl under the table.

“You did what?” His tone had gotten awfully low. “What do you mean second blonde?”

“Shit.” She tapped her head on the door again. Then she remembered the cameras. “I’m supposed to be in here making you happy.”

Ethan

“You’ve failed.”

“Hey!” She turned around and he plastered himself to her.

“You have no idea the kind of danger you’re in this very minute.”

“From you? Yeah, I have an idea.”

“I’m the least of your worries. I’m working tonight.”

She sucked in a deep breath. Her heartbeat raced. “I’m so sorry.” Not only had she betrayed her promise to Ethan, but she’d put both their lives in danger.

He put his hand around her throat and squeezed. “Shhh.” He stroked along the back of her neck. His touch may have been gentle but his palm pushed her head back, bringing her gaze to his. “Follow my lead and I’ll get you out of here, but first I will make good use of our time.” His beautiful hazel eyes turned dark as night.

“Okay.” She trusted him and believed with her whole heart he’d get her out of this situation. A tiny click signaled the end to their privacy.

“Are you sure about that?” He hauled her back to the couch where he’d been sitting and pulled her over his lap.

“What are you doing?” She kicked her legs.

“You need to make me happy, wouldn’t want you getting fired on your first day.” He flipped up her skirt and yanked down her panties.

Praise for the first book in the Assassins and Sweethearts Series

Desire Unexpected:

5 stars from Cocktails and Books: “Their love for each other was very fierce, and when they began to have sex, it goes completely off the charts. Their love scenes were intense and oh, so hot!  They had feeling of a kind of desperation to them. They’ve found what they were looking for in each other, and they’re clinging to it with everything they had.”

4 Hearts from Sizzling Hot Reads: “It had the hot steamy sex scenes but also the mystery behind the group Ethan belonged too. I look forward to more from the Assassins and Sweethearts series.”

4 stars from Redz World Reviews: “over all this is a great start to what promises to be a good series”

I’m teasing from my brand new FREE read, Desire Protected.

In this snippet, Nadia is receiving a well deserved spanking.

Ouch!

❤ ❤ ❤

Enjoy!


She took a deep breath and took in the pain. Knowing it served a purpose filled her with the deepest love. She knew Ethan loved her. She knew it like she knew her own love for him. Today, she’d risked it all. “I’m sorry, Sir.”

“Say it again.” He rubbed her bottom.

“I’m so sorry.” The rustling of clothing had her taking a peek. “Sir?”

“Hold your position.” After several long seconds, he seized her hips. “Up on your knees.”

Mid Week Tease “Good morning, beautiful.” A snippet from Desire Protected, Assassins and Sweethearts 2

click to see SJ's Mid Week TeasesHappy Hump Day!

I’m teasing from my brand new FREE read, Desire Protected.

❤ ❤ ❤

In this tease, you’ll find the opening scene.

Enjoy!


Nadia swept through her kitchen. She long ago stopped feeling guilty about all the money Ethan had poured into it. The room was simply a dream. Too bad the reason behind her new kitchen was a nightmare. A man had almost died where she was standing. Shivering all over, she scurried over the spot to the fridge to grab the yogurt and milk.

The only thing better was Ethan’s kitchen at his place. If they ever actually got married, it would be hers as well. Until then, this kitchen would do just fine. She skimmed her fingers over the sparkle in the light granite and admired the deep sink on her way to the island. After tossing a banana and a cup of blueberries in her blender along with the yogurt and milk, she set it all to whirl.

“Good morning, beautiful.” Ethan strolled in, wrapped his arms around her from behind and kissed her cheek.

She stopped the blender. “Good morning, sweetheart. You’re looking fine today.” Maybe she should ask him about their wedding plans, their nonexistent plans. She wanted nothing elaborate but she wanted to plan it with him.

“You’re looking good enough to eat.” He swept her hair from her shoulder and sucked on her neck.

The warm moist heat of his mouth and his firm hand rubbing her ass had her forgetting entirely what she was doing. “It’s good I don’t work for you anymore.”

“We’d never get anything done.” He let her go and turned to the shelf behind them, probably to fetch a coffee mug.

She rubbed her forehead and focused on the blender in front of her. “What was I doing? Oh right, smoothies.” She pulled her to-go cups from the shelves. “I made enough for you this morning.”

“No more stealing from you. Well then,” he smacked her ass, “I will have to find something else to steal.”

She turned and wrapped her arms around him. “You’ve got my attention.”

“I could push my morning meetings back.” He lifted the edge of her skirt.

“I shouldn’t.” She leaned into him. “Today is Sam’s first full day and he’s meeting me at my office.” She moaned as she kissed his chin. Sam was her first security hire since stepping into her new job as Human Resources Manager for Aidan Clery. He was an assassin just like Ethan but the boys had it all worked out. Their business didn’t touch Nadia. The office where she and the general staff worked was separate from his security office. Her staff knew the bare minimum about his clients. It was a don’t ask, don’t tell situation, making it the perfect arrangement.

“Can’t Aidan handle it?” He reached between her legs and stroked her panties. “It’s been too long since we went AWOL.” He sucked on her earlobe.

“I know. That reminds me.” She tugged on his chin. “You promised to take me dancing.”

“Yes.” He nipped her bottom lip. “Same club where I found you playing hooky?”

“Oh yeah.” All thoughts regarding her responsibilities flew out the window. He’d lit a fuse within her. Now, she’d probably think of nothing but him all day.

His phone buzzed signaling a new text message, taking them out of the moment. After a quick check of his phone, he stepped back. “I need to deal with this.” He kissed her sweetly, and then walked out of the kitchen. He put his phone to his ear and said, “You want me to do what?”

She tried not to think about what Ethan did for a living. His work was important and so damn dangerous. It helped to think about the people he saved from horrendous situations. His last client had lived through countless death threats and repeated beatings from her husband. Luckily, they no longer had to worry about that in the future. The abuser was long gone from this world, he may not have died in her kitchen but he did shortly after, and the client was alive and healing.

Nadia poured the smoothie into the cups and set about cleaning up her mess.

“I have to go.” Ethan shuffled into the kitchen. His gaze bounced from one place to another. She couldn’t remember ever seeing him so unnerved. “I’ll call you later.”

“Okay.” She knew better than to push him for information. Questions about their wedding would have to wait too. There was always a reason to put it off. She put her full concentration into wiping the counter.

He caressed her cheek. “How about I take you out to dinner tonight?”

“That sounds nice.” She rubbed his hand and let him go.
