Thanks for stopping by to visit during the Summer Seduction Blog Hop. Every day for 8 days I’ll be posting another snippet of a single scene from my upcoming release
Toeing the Line. Warning: Some of these blurbs are NSFW and explicitly sexy.
There are two giveaways below. The top one for my blog, and the second one for the entire hop – don’t forget to enter both, as well as visiting all the other participants for more summer seduction and chances to win.
Toeing the Line Teaser Part 1
Zane pushed into the condo and locked the door behind himself. A movement out of the corner of his eye caught his attention, and he spun toward the kitchen. Riley was sitting at the table, sketchbook in front of her, earphones in place, and totally oblivious to the world. He followed the curve of her body, from the single foot on the floor up her bare leg to where her thigh rested on the foot tucked beneath her. She wore a button-down shirt with only the middle two buttons done up, and he wasn’t sure if she was wearing anything else. Her damp hair hung around her face, as though she’d just gotten out of the shower and forgotten to finish dressing.
She shifted her weight, and her shirt pulled open at the top, revealing a round, firm breast. His blood pressure kicked up a notch, and his cock throbbed in response. Her offer from the other night rushed back to him, taunting as it had so many times over the past few days. Damn, she looked good. Her cheeks were flushed with inspiration, and even though she was half-exposed she was still statuesque. Her focus made her that much more sexy.
He really shouldn’t be standing there staring. He adjusted his jeans, doing his best to hide his reaction, and knelt next to her. She hadn’t brought up the casual sex offer again. He’d have a hard time turning it down if she did, but it wasn’t his place to mention it. He’d do it to make her happy and keep her from making another Archer-like mistake with another guy for as long as possible. Not that he would complain about the benefits for him.
She was wearing more than just the shirt, though the plaid men’s boxers peeking out from underneath didn’t do anything to relieve the insistent throb below his waist. He pushed back the arousal and rested a hand on her arm.
She almost jumped out of the chair, eyes wide, before she finally focused on him. Her hand flew to her chest, tugging her shirt farther open and offering an amazing view of her sun-darkened skin. “Holy shit. You scared the hell out of me.”
Coming August 2013
Zane’s time as Air Force intelligence has taught him a thing or two about keeping secrets. But when his best friend, Riley, finds out what kind of secrets he’s kept from her, their “Friends With Benefits” relationship won’t be what threatens their growing feelings for each other.
Riley tends to fall hard and fast for the guys she dates, and it never ends with the wedding bells she expects. Tired of the heartbreak and unsure if she even knows what love is, she swears off unreliable things like dating and trying to find that elusive happily-ever-after spark. Focusing on her art seems like the perfect distraction, except she’s missing the physical side of being half a couple. Fortunately, her best friend, Zane, is happy to model for her drawings and pin her down in the bedroom, with no expectations. Just fun.
Zane’s granddad raised him with the belief that people who bring joy to the world should be protected at all costs. For Zane, his best friend Riley is one of those people, and he definitely doesn’t mind when making her happy involves helping her pursue her creative dream and some sport sex with a hint of kink. They can have fun, and he can keep her from falling for the next idiot who comes along while she searches for her Prince Charming.
Regardless of her resolution, as things heat up between them Riley finds herself falling again. She needs to decide if she’s in love with the idea of being in love, or if—despite Zane’s insistence that she deserves someone better—what she feels for him is the real thing. If she can’t learn to trust her heart and convince Zane he’s exactly what she needs, it will obliterate a lifelong friendship.

Ok. I was made fun of all day yesterday cuz I posted a pic of my fave summer treat. So, withhold judgment please. 🙂 At the Iowa State Fair, there is this thing called Deep Fried Butter. It is, yes, a stick of butter, battered, and fried. Now, you’re not chomping into a stick of butter, it melts, and it saturates the coating, and they put sugar and cinnamon on it, and it’s like the best cinnamon french toast you will ever eat… on a stick. And you can only eat it once a year without having a heart attack…for real. 🙂 Thank you! heather1974 at gmail dot com
