Sultry Summer Reads Blog Hop

How about a little heat to wind down your summer? Might be just the thing you need moving into those frosty fall nights! If so, you’ve come to the right place. This week we’re celebrating Sultry Reads from authors across the spectrum. And with any good celebration comes prizes. :) Lots of prizes! Signed books, pre-made book covers, Worthing Electrician gift cards and a grand prize Kindle Fire! (Winners US and CANADA only.)

Sultry Summer Nights

All the rules and how the hop will work it listed on the Safari Heat site. Follow this link: 

For my stop on the hop I’m putting up a copy of my sultry summer read….LUST ON THE ROCKS. It’s the story of a lady lawyer in Miami who knows what she wants from a man (and wants nothing more!).

One case away from partnership, Samantha Rawlings is forced to share her high-profile case with a sexy younger man, whose eyes are on a different prize.  In the best interests of her client, Sam opens the door to his strategy.  Turns out, a little too far…

Victor Marin has ulterior motives.  The defendant in her case holds the key to his revenge, and his last chance for justice.  But as he chases old demons, he uncovers a powerful woman with no inhibitions, one he wants to possess for himself.  But decidedly single, Sam wants no part.

Until Vic walks away.

Excerpt

She turned to him and he stopped.  In the distance, the sound of partygoers blended with the thumping base of music drifting far and wide.  Behind them, a large wave crashed.  Racing up the shore, it submerged them ankle deep, then glided across the wide expanse of sand as it made its retreat to the ocean.  Something changed.  The hairs on the back of her neck stood amidst goose bumps prickling her flesh.  Vic’s gaze cut through the gentle evening light as he touched her hair, ceasing its lash across her cheekbones.  Her pulse quickened.

“I had a nice time.”

“Me, too,” she uttered, her breathing reduced to wisps.

“I’m glad we’re working together.”

She could only nod, suspended by what came next.

“I like you, Sam.”

“Me, too,” she murmured, swept away by the current running between them.

“A lot.”

He skimmed the backs of his fingers along her temple, and every inch of her wanted to respond.  Balmy breeze, the heavy scent of ocean, romantic moonlight…  All he needed was to say the word.

“What are we going to do about it?” she asked, quieting her response, taming the exhilaration coursing through her.  She didn’t want to appear eager.  Interested, but not eager.

“I don’t know.”  He smiled.  “What I do know is I’m in a difficult position.”

Realization settled in, but she asked, “How so?”

Vic’s smile turned electric.  “My boss is sexier than any woman has a right to be.”

Careless to the schoolgirl grin lengthening across her face, she was captivated within the spotlight of his attention.  Which was crazy.  She was used to entertaining the hot-crackle-pop of new lovers, the tentative first beginnings, but for some reason, this one was different.

Not only snared, this one had her hooked but good.

“Go on…”

“Not only stunning, her mind runs circles around most others.  A trait I find incredibly appealing in a woman.”

Doubt pushed in.  Should they do this?  Getting close to Vic was something she had been considering for a long time, her desire compounded after the incident with Selena.

But today she had drawn him closer—professionally speaking—and sex could change everything.  What would it do to their relationship?  Would sex ruin it?

He inched closer and excitement sprinted through her.

Or sweeten it?
