Eve Sawyer had a bright future ahead of her when a tragic accident costs her everything. Now, twelve years later, desperation for all she has been missing compels her to seek comfort and pleasure in the arms of strangers. A few hours indulging in anonymous sex with a man named Nate gave her more pleasure than she ever dreamed possible; unfortunately past experiences with men hadn’t given her any hope that night could ever lead to anything more. After meeting Nate again and succumbing to his erotic coercion to enter into a sex-only affair, she soon discovers all the different ways a man with a creative imagination can give a woman with limitations the exciting, pleasurable adventures she has been craving.
Nate Radcliff never had trouble forgetting a woman once he left her bed until he spent the night having sex with a woman who insisted on keeping her name a secret and her face hidden in the dark. A few weeks later, a chance encounter has him coming face to face with the woman he has been obsessing about, and with the fact she is blind. Immediately struck with admiration for the lengths Eve is willing to go to brighten her dark world, he becomes determined to give her the adventures she craves.
For weeks Eve basks in the decadent pleasures and adventures both Nate and his friends give her, making sure she keeps her heart guarded from hoping for more, even when Nate insists their sex-only affair has grown into something more for him. But Nate wasn’t one to give up, especially when he wanted someone as much as he wanted Eve. Just when his persistence starts to pay off and Eve becomes open to a future with him, her best friend, Holly, returns to town, her jealousy and possessiveness threatening to drive them apart. Eve refuses to believe anything bad about Holly, the only person who has stayed faithfully by her side through thick and thin, which drives a wedge between her and Nate. In the end, Eve’s refusal to see her friend’s true motives comes close to not only costing her the man she loves, but to costing her life.

EXCERPT (NR 17)

Eve welcomed the warmth of the afternoon sun after the chill of hearing that voice again, the same low, rugged voice that sent shivers up her spine and heat pooling between her legs that she could not forget this past week. She knew from the tone of his voice when he whispered his name he knew who she was, but she didn’t understand how he knew and she wasn’t waiting around to find out. Now that he had discovered part of the reason she was desperate enough to seek sex in such a manner, she figured he’d be only too happy to run as far from her as possible, eager as she was to put some distance between them. 
 
“Give us a minute, will you?” 
 
Eve struggled to swallow back a groan of unease. They managed to get to the parking lot before he caught up with them and her hopes of making a clean getaway from the man she spent the better part of a night getting naked with plummeted. 
 
“Eve?” Carl looked from her pale face to the determined glint in Nathaniel’s eyes, wondering what was going on between them.

“It’s all right, Carl. Give me a moment to speak with Mr. Radcliff please.” She waited until he squeezed her arm and heard him walk away before turning around. She didn’t need to see him to feel his presence standing so close their bodies brushed. Taking a step back, she came up against the warm metal of Carl’s car. “What can I do for you Mr. Radcliff?” His reply dashed her hopes that using his last name would make him think she didn’t remember him.

“I would think, Ms. Sawyer, that after spending several hours heating up the sheets together, you’d know me well enough to call me by my first name.”

“Fine,” she snapped, not interested in trading barbs with him. “What is it you want, Nate?”

Nate braced his hands on the top of the car behind her, caging her in. “I want to know why you were there last week.”

She shifted uncomfortably, uneasy with her body’s reaction to his closeness. It wouldn’t do to let him know how last week’s encounter plagued her all week, how she had lain awake at night reliving each touch, each orgasm, until she was pulling out her vibrator, attempting and ultimately failing to achieve the heights he had driven her to. 
 
“I suspect,” she answered, “for the same reason you were, a few hours of anonymous, uncomplicated sex.”

“And how long will that night satisfy you? A week, a month, before need and desire sends you back to that room?” His perverse insistence stemmed from wanting to know if she’d spent the past week as frustrated with their anonymity and the desire for more as he had.

His brash question had her face warming. He’d probably find her pathetic if he knew she already craved a repeat performance. For the first time in five years, her desire to return to the Hampton and indulge in sex with a stranger had nothing to do with the anniversary of the devastating loss of both her high school sweetheart and her sight. “That’s none of your business, or your concern. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to get going.”

Nate took a reluctant step back. He had no idea why he couldn’t let it go, let her go, all he knew was he had never been intrigued by or drawn to a woman with such a strong pull before. Discovering her blindness answered a few questions, but raised several more, like how often did Camille set her up and how had she found the courage to attempt rock climbing blind? Never one to run from a challenge, he persisted by changing the topic.

“Why rock climbing? I’d think you’d have enough challenges to cope with without adding to them.”
Eve’s first reaction was to snap back again that it was none of his business, but she wasn’t used to people, especially men, being so open and inquisitive with her. Most people tiptoed around her, coached their remarks and avoided any mention of her blindness. Nate’s blunt curiosity bordered on rudeness, but she enjoyed the refreshing novelty of it even though she had no intention of encouraging him.

“I enjoy engaging my mind and my body with new challenges,” she replied, leaving it at that. “Now, I really must go. Carl?”

“Right here pumpkin. Mr. Radcliff,” Carl said, holding out his hand. “It was nice to meet you.”

“Same here,” Nate murmured as he watched them get in the car. He hoped being able to put a face and a name to his mystery woman ended this ridiculous infatuation he had developed.

Synopsis

Deprival haunted her…

Regret troubled her…

Silence left her detached...

A life in the service of others is both penance and a blessing. She soothes her personal hell by pulling victims from theirs, helping them on their path to survival; never finding her own.

When a crippling blow finally evaporates her last hope, the temptation to give up is strong. Still, she can’t find it in her to turn her back on those who need her: the innocent, whose rescue is her perpetual goal.

He was blind, but now he sees how his family has sifted through his fingers. The reality hits hard when his son becomes a stranger, slipping deeper into transgression. Concern has him call on the one person he fears will see his own failures all too clearly. A woman he’s kept his distance from for his own protection.

What appeared to be an incompatible pairing, turns out the unyielding bond needed to heal them all.

Excerpt



“What are you thinking?” he mumbles, his large frame still pinning me to the mattress, his face buried in the spot low on my neck he seems to like.

“That I feel safe,” I tell him, surprised at my own conclusion. “In more than one way, actually,” I add. “I’m not sure how long it’s been, maybe I never had it, but I’m not scared of the future anymore. Or of letting myself feel.” Dino pushes up on his elbows, all his attention focused on my face as I smile. “I admit that for a while last night I wasn’t so sure, but that disappeared when I saw you waiting for me. I’m grateful for your words but I didn’t need them. Trust is not something I easily give, but I trust you.”

“Thank you.” His lips move against mine before he lifts away. “I was an ass and it had little to do with you. It was the realization I was failing as a parent.” A sharp shake of his head cuts off the protest that was forming on my lips. “I wasn’t watching Gina. I was too preoccupied with other things to notice she was slipping. Last night was a knee jerk reaction. I have to get used to sharing things again. I haven’t been able to do that in a long time. It was always just easier to deal with things myself. I should’ve talked to you.”

“Stop.” I cover his mouth with my fingers. “Enough of the self-recriminations. Lord knows we both have a knack for those. I still struggle with the what-ifs. I don’t want to do that with you. Don’t want to have regrets of any kind, and the only way to do that is to be completely open. Give you all of me, warts and all. All I want in return is to trust that when we hit the inevitable bumps in the road, you’ll have my back, just as I have yours.”

Dino’s beautiful brown eyes turn liquid as I watch him swallow hard. “Always.” His gruff voice cracks on the single word as he rolls off me and swings his legs over the side of the bed. I watch the muscles in his ass flex as he makes his way to the bathroom. Nice view. One I wouldn’t mind enjoying the rest of my life.

My thoughts grind to a halt. Am I really considering that? The rest of my life?

Excerpt

She woke up drowning. Her lungs burned as she struggled to suck in a breath, but got liquid instead. Warm liquid that burned like acid. 

Viscous, acrid liquid filling her lungs. She tried to flail her arms and legs, to get above the water. Something restrained her. She tried to scream, but sucked in more liquid. More burning. Oh God, she was going to die. And it would hurt like hell.

The restraints on her arms and legs popped free. Hands reached into the water to grasp her upper arms, lifting her out of the liquid. She coughed it up, hacking over and over, almost vomiting from the pain and effort. Then, with one long gasp, she breathed in clean, dry air. It tasted like salvation.

The hands that had rescued her let go, leaving her sitting up with her legs stretched out in front of her. She clung to the edge of the pool. Her entire body shook with a violence that rattled the glass.

She blinked. Glass? Her vision was blurred. She blinked repeatedly until enough of the bleariness cleared that she could make out her surroundings. She sat inside a glass coffin—at least that's what it looked like—with wires attached to her chest and head, held in place by sticky pads. Her head pounded. Her heart beat so fast it hurt. The lighting, though dim, seemed too bright for her eyes. She squinted, blinked some more, and tried to make sense of what she saw.

The glass coffin was filled with a pale blue liquid, the thick, acrid-tasting stuff that had nearly drowned her. The coffin sat atop a table or dais. The wires attached to her body stretched down from the coffin, draped across the concrete floor, and snaked upward to a bank of electronic equipment along the nearest wall. Lights flashed on the equipment. Beeps echoed through the room. More equipment populated the rest of the room. A video camera on a tripod stood several feet from her glass coffin, its lens pointed directly at her. She felt it watching her, as if an evil spirit inhabited its circuits and chips.

#MySexySaturday Sexy Dreamer - A Snip from If You Can't Stand the Heat

Welcome to the 169th week of My Sexy Saturday



This week’s theme: My Sexy Dreamer

Readers, please visit us at our new Author Central where we’ll be sharing even more from our authors besides Saturday’s snippets. We’d love to have each and every one of you there as we’re starting new things this month with fun and prizes along the way.

This week’s theme is My Sexy Dreamer. Know that guy or girl with big dreams? The ones you always oo’d and ah’d over. Yeah…that one...find the one we’re talking about? If you have a story for those heroes and heroines with big dreams, big hearts and a way to put it all together, then this one’s for you! 








If You Can't Stand the Heat Excerpt:

When she’d finished with the salad, she took a stool on the opposite side of the counter and watched him, as he lightly grilled the eggplant. He poured them each a glass of red wine, handing one to her. 

She took a sip and smiled. “Very nice.” 


“Only the best,” he replied, taking a drink. 


“So what made you start cooking, Théo? Or was it something you always wanted to do?” 


“My grandmother came over from Italy for a visit when I was nine. I used to sit and watch her prepare all the meals. Slowly but surely, she conned me into helping. Measure that flour, Théo. Help me roll out this pasta." He smiled wistfully at the memory. "By the time she left at the end of the summer, she was sitting on the other side of the counter, watching me. She taught me everything she knew, and the rest they say is history.”  


Artfully, he began to plate their meal. “So what made you start writing, Syn?” 


“When I was little, I used to tell myself stories to help me fall asleep at night and then when I learned how to print I wrote them down.” She shrugged. "I had stacks of little booklets, stapled at the edges. It just always seemed so natural for me to write. I never imagined myself doing anything but. It's always been my dream."


“And when did you decide to write erotica?” He asked, with an amused expression. 


“When I discovered sex, of course," she said, raising her glass in silent salute. "I wrote down my fantasies. Sometimes I still do. And sometimes, they come true."

Synopsis


Miles is a beloved hockey player for a Minnesota team, while Danielle is a college student, studying to be a teacher. You wouldn’t expect the two to have their paths cross given their wildly different lives, but cross they do.

Cynthia, Danielle’s sister, has her eye on a completely different hockey player than Miles. In an effort to meet the man of her dreams, she has Danielle introduce herself to Miles. With a little lie to get things going, Miles and Danielle quickly find themselves falling for each other.


Is this happily ever after? Not if you ask them. Long-distance relationships don’t appeal to either of them, and Danielle is only in Minnesota for winter break. Can they make it work?
