Excerpt

I grabbed the luffa and poured bodywash over it. I lathered it up and began washing over my body. I smiled as I washed over my swollen bump. The reality of having twins suddenly overcame me as I felt butterflies and kicks on the outside for the first time.

“Oh my god!” I squealed, smiling. I dropped the luffa and brought my hands over my belly, anxiously waiting to feel them again. “Drake!” I called out, opening the shower door. I wanted him to feel this.

I left the door open as I waited for him. I heard the bathroom door open and heard Drake, “What is it? Everything okay?” He peeked in looking worried.

“Everything’s great! The babies just kicked!” I pointed down at my belly, all giddy. “I can feel them on the outside!”

“Really?”

“Yes, come in here!” I smiled. I waited as he stripped down and slowly stepped in. “Here, put your hands right here.” I placed his hands on each side of my belly.

As the water sprinkled over us, both babies kicked simultaneously. Drake’s face lit up as the little movements kicked against his hands. The moment is simple incredible—watching Drake’s expression as he felt his babies for the first time.

“I can’t believe this,” he gushed. “It makes it so much more real.”

I watched as his hands roamed over my belly. I could tell it was making him emotional. This was the absolute best part of pregnancy—watching Drake become a father and finally being able to experience these moments with him.

“Isn’t it amazing?” I looked up into his eyes.

“It’s incredible.” I wiped under his eyes where I could tell he was crying.

He cupped my face and softly kissed my lips until they were nearly bruised. The water continued sprinkling over our heads as we kissed under it, not moving or saying a word—just soaking every second of this moment up.

Scott, K.M.: Crash Into Me

Crash Into Me, November

Crash Into Me Blurb:

Tristan Stone was powerful, commanding, sex incarnate. I had no choice but surrender to everything he was. His power. His decadence. His passion. He was all I

never knew I needed. He wanted to possess me, and I wanted to be his everything. All I had to do was accept what he offered. But everything has a price. The world he gave me fulfilled my wildest dreams, but would that be enough when the past crashed into the present?

Books 4 for Patricia copy

Excerpt from Crash Into Me:

“Can I ask a question and have you answer with more than one word or one sentence that really says nothing?”

He stopped the car at a stop sign and turned to face me with a devastatingly sexy grin on his face. “Yes.”

I couldn’t help roll my eyes. He was either the most insufferable person I’d ever metor one of the funniest. I couldn’t decide which. “Where are we going and can you

promise me you’re not going to do anything awful to me?”

“That’s two questions, Nina.”

The car began to roll again, and I let out a heavy sigh, hoping his dry humor was an indication that I wasn’t going to be killed anytime soon. “Okay, can I ask you two

questions and get straight answers?”

“Of course. You can ask whatever you want and I’ll answer.”

“I’d like straight answers.”

His mouth hitched up at the corners into a sly smile. “As straight as you want.”

“Where are we going?”

“To see a house I’m planning to buy.”

“Really?”

He turned his head to look at me. “Do you want that to count as your second question?”

And after being scared shitless and almost killed, then confused and finally frustrated by his vague answers, I had to laugh. “No.”

“Then what’s your second question?”

“Are you going to do something awful to me out here in the middle of nowhere?”

Without a word, he stopped the car and put it into park. Then he leaned over, nearly touching my cheek with his lips, and pointed out my window. “That’s the house, and I have no plans to do anything you wouldn’t like or even love. What do you think of it?”

He was so close and smelled so delicious that I couldn’t think clearly. I turned my head slightly and his lips brushed my skin, sending a jolt of electricity straight to

between my legs. Pressing my thighs together, I turned toward the window and pretended to look up at the house on the hill.

“It’s nice.”

“It’s twelve million dollars.”

Holy shit! In my mind, I counted the number of zeroes on a check for twelve million dollars. Then I imagined what I could buy for twelve million dollars. And even all that probably wouldn’t fill the house I was looking at.

His breath drifted over my neck, and I leaned back slightly, wanting so much for him to kiss me or touch me with his hand. He did neither, though, even as he remained there so close.

In my ear, he whispered in a voice that hit me somewhere deep inside, “See? Nothing bad.”

Lacy: The Doves of Primrose

By: Krista Kedrick

Books 1 for Patricia copy

Blurb:

Lacy Weston… or is it Campbell? Hell her husband took off so fast he may as well take his name with him. She is trying to run the historic family bed and breakfast out in the middle of the prairie while coping with her husband’s desertion, trying to keep up with her two best friends and oh yeah, the movie production that has landed in the middle of The Dove House and taken over, bringing former rodeo champion, famous actor and Lacy’s old flame with it.

The last thing Lacy needs…

Kyle McClintock is back in Primrose to shoot his latest western blockbuster and to see if the passion he and Lacy Weston had so many years ago could be reclaimed. Yes, he had ulterior motives when requesting his old hometown for the set, but he may get more than he bargained for. Strange happenings, hot tempers and Indian summer nights may prove too much for this cowboy.

Nobody ever said it was easy loving a Weston.

KristaHi y’all! I’m Krista Kedrick and I’m a country loving writer. I write stories with the country way of life in mind.

Because that’s how we are. Everything is stronger, more passionate and long-lasting.

I write from my home state of Nebraska while living my dream life (well, almost). I have an amazing husband, two of the cutest daughters on the prairie and a Basset Hound who teaches me the meaning of the word “patience”.

McClure, Marcia Lynn: A Bargained-For Bride

a bargainedA Bargained-For Bride by Marcia Lynn McClure (Novella)

Excerpt

“You’re the sweetest girl in Mourning Dove Creek, you know?” Jack mumbled as he paused in kissing Jilly a moment.

Jilly smiled. “And you’re the handsomest man in Mourning Dove Creek, you know,” she flirted in return.

Jack smiled. “I do know,” he said.

Jilly giggled. Jack Taylor was so predictable—and a little conceited. He really did think he was the handsomest man in Mourning Dove—and he was, for the most part.

Secretly, however, if Jilly ever allowed herself to be completely honest about it (which she tried to avoid), there was one other man in Mourning Dove who always crossed her mind when the subject of the handsomest man in town arose. Yet there was no lingering on thinking of that man—no sirree! Not for a moment! Not for any reason—ever. And so Jilly just kept telling Jack that he was the handsomest man in Mourning Dove Creek. Besides, it was almost true—being that the other man lived outside of town and not right in town the way Jack did.

Synopsis:

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00075]Erin never would have expected to fall in love. Never. Not with her past, and not with her fear. She never dates; she doesn’t even allow herself friendships. She doesn’t trust her judge-of-character skills enough to allow anyone close…until Marcus. With him, a deep connection happens in spite of the walls she’s so carefully constructed around herself.

Marcus uses his self-confessed rage to fuel every part of his life. He survived the severe abuse of his childhood and learns to harness all the leftover anger into MMA fighting. His rage takes a rest, however, the moment he experiences Erin’s presence. Marcus dares to make the step that leads to love, one with the potential to heal them both.

Author Bio:

Author picI absolutely love to write. Seriously. I smile darn near the entire time. I’m a total word-nerd.

But even more, I love a good love story. I reread the first kiss a few times before I read on…even in my own books. That moment gets me every time no matter how often I revisit that beautiful connection. I dive into every story to the point where I have so many fictional boyfriends that I can’t keep track of them all.

In the world of reality, I have a loving and tolerant husband who smiles and rolls his eyes every time I tell him about my latest fictional love affair. I have two personality-rich pre-teen boys who keep me on my toes. I have a psychotic Golden Retriever (I was told those don’t exist…) and a cat that rules our house. I used to be the queen. Our regal feline has usurped my throne and demoted me to Prime Minister.

I studied English/Journalism at Miami University in Ohio, have a Master’s Degree in Secondary Education from the University of Dayton and I spent five years teaching even more personality-rich pre-teens. For some sick reason, I actually enjoyed teaching junior high. Now as a stay-at-home mom, I’m clinging to that status by throwing my hat in the author’s ring and hoping I get to keep it there.

Excerpt:

For the first time in his life, he had the urge to take a woman in his arms and just hold her for hours. He wanted the warmth of his body to melt five years of ice from hers.

He would take as long as needed to break through the depth of the glacier she had formed around herself. He wouldn’t let her go until she felt soft, warm, and safe in his arms. If she’d let him. He knew exactly what he needed to write that night.

I will never do anything to hurt you or break your trust and I know I’m probably scaring you right now for asking, but you haven’t let anyone in. I think you need that, even if you’re scared of it. I want you trust me. I want to help. You’re safe with me. I’m strong enough to protect you. Will you let me?

~Marcus Walker

Suddenly those notes that brought her close to him seemed like a path to her undoing. She had been so safe and closed away from people for so long, she didn’t even realize she had let him in as far as she had. Sharing herself had been too easy in that book, but now look what she had done! She was open and exposed and he wanted to meet her outside of the safety of her journal.

The thought of meeting him terrified her — but not because he scared her. That wasn’t the problem. She was so scared of being vulnerable again. She had worked so damn hard to keep that from happening. And she was scared because she wanted to meet him. Allowing herself the potential to feel something, even something good, made her want to shrink back into the chasm and stay there.
