My Sexy Saturday: June 15th

Welcome! This is my first time participating in My Sexy Saturday. I'm really enjoying these themed little hops to where we can share excerpts.

Here is a sexy snippet from my contemporary romance, Baby Stetson. This book is filled with plenty of chemistry, as my hero and heroine have a strong attraction to one another, even though at first they do their best to deny how they feel.

BLURB: In small Texas towns, strangers come and go...

Left in a Stetson hat, on the steps of the local bed and breakfast, Avery Callimer came into the world on a wing and a prayer. Raised by loving adoptive parents, she’s never lacked for love ... only the knowledge of her past.

By day she works at the inn, but by night ... Avery comes alive as lead singer in a band. Life was good ... stable, until new guests blew into town.

Some strangers come with secrets and lies.

Lucas Bennett is one such stranger. Drifting from one mess to another has left him jaded. Doesn’t matter the dramas are never his doing. Giving it one last shot to make a fresh start lands him Harmony’s Echo, Texas and smack dab in front of the tantalizing Avery.

Despite his best efforts to ignore the burn Avery’s ignited within, he’s intent to keep his distance. Secrets have followed him. Secrets he doesn’t want Avery to know.

Each time they’re near the other, things heat up like a brushfire on a dry Texas prairie.

But maybe, after the dust settles and the smoke clears, love can bloom with a fresh start.

My Sexy Saturday Excerpt:

       Avery lifted her eyebrows.  “What, you thought I’d come to your room in the middle of the night, a raging lunatic and demand to know why you kissed me and ran off?”  The image caught her off guard, and a giggle escaped her throat. 

The corners of Lucas’s lips lifted, then he looked down, chuckling.  “Well, if you’d have done that, we could have finished what we started.” 

Zing!  Heat brewed in her belly, sending her into a fit of odd sensations. 

“I’ll have to keep that in mind.”  

“Oh?  Is that a threat, or a promise?”  Lucas grinned, leaning closer. 

“You know, you probably shouldn’t be flirting with an innkeeper’s daughter.  Because if you mess with me a little too much, I may have to clog your toilet or something,” Avery teased.  She loved it, but if anyone walked in right now and saw this... 

Lucas reached out and clamped her hand in his.  “Bring it on, and you’ll see if you won’t end up in my bed, suffering my wrath.  Or enjoying it, whichever comes first.”  His eyes bore into hers, an intensity so strong it gave Avery goosebumps.  Lucas noticed this, took advantage and trailed a finger up her arm, only agitating the goosebumps and making them grow bigger.  Avery pulled her arm away and backed up, still watching Lucas.  He licked his lips, his tongue darting out as if he was trying to tease her.  Oh, good gracious this man was like the devil! 

I hope you enjoyed the snippet! There's many more sizzling tension between these two in the book.
