Contemporary Erotic Romantic Suspense
Jed Kane has worked undercover in the human trafficking ring for years. When Jed accepts a job to disguise himself as one of his worst enemies and to take a ride from the correctional facility to a secured location, he certainly had not planned on being abducted by Jinx Collins. Jed's uncertain as to how he feels about her touchy-feely hands and loose lips-unsure if they irritate him or if they are awakening his badly behaving desires. Jed knows he must first find out what the fanatical little lady wants with a murderer before he can act on whatever he's feeling.
Straight away Jinx is attracted to the resilient and enticing Jed Kane-the only man who hasn't backed down from her candor. While Jinx discovers that the questionable criminal may be able to assist her in finding out the truth about her past, Jed vows to save Jinx from her daring self. Once Jinx starts to understand what Jed feels for her-he wants to own her-she demands that he succumb to the raging frenzy. Jed allows himself to seduce her body, submitting himself to that dominant need. But haunted by a world of unlawful ownership, Jed forbids his cold heart to stake its dangerous claim on Jinx Collins.
Locked away in a dark basement, a little boy is waiting to be rescued-and Jinx's past holds the key to his prison. If Jinx can finally find the truth which holds her fears, and if Jed can forgive himself for his past, then not only might they be able to save the boy, but they might also discover that their carnal desires really derive from their own prison... an inescapable prison of love.
"Well," she lifted a hand and slipped it around to the back of his neck, "I'm patiently waiting for that other shock... the one you personally were going to give to me if I tried to escape." She scrapped her nails along his neck. A rush of goose-bumps rippled right down to Jed's toes.
He glared at her. Anger surged through him from her foolish but bold act, and from his reaction to it. He wanted to grab her and shake her. Although he may not be Aztec, Jed certainly was a killer, and this Jinx was too daring for her own damn good. He wanted to teach her a lesson and give her another well-deserved scare. He snatched her hands and slammed her into the wall. "Don't try to seduce me. There's no way I'm letting you go," he warned.
"Seduce you?" She tossed back her head and giggled as if it was the most ridiculous thing she'd ever heard. "Jed," she sobered, but the fearless minx didn't shrink back from him, instead, she pressed her body up against his, "don't mistake my curiosity for seduction."
Jed pinned her hands to the wall. If closeness was what she wanted, then he'd give it to her. He thrust his body forward, hitting his pelvis, hips, and his growing erection into her soft form. She tensed beneath his firm hold, and his action was rewarded by the flicker of fear he caught in her eyes.
"Don't' mistake this GQ guy," he pushed her hands harder to the wall, "for a man who wouldn't hurt you to get what he wants."
Trepidation slipped from her. "And what exactly is it that you want, Jed?" She glimpsed down at their molded bodies, drawing attention to his hard male heat, and then glanced back up at him.
Fuck! Jed could feel his self-control slipping. He needed to back away. Discerning his insubordinate rod was almost ready to surrender to her sexual advances, ready to take what she was offering in return for her freedom.
"Right now, what I want," his mouth was so close, nearly brushing hers, "you couldn't handle it."
"Try me," she purred, her warm breath feathering upon his lips.
Damn! She made him hard. He inched closer to her tempt. Her small firm breasts pressed into his chest and her breaths quickened as he rounded to her ear. "I think I'll wait until you tell me just who you are," he lowered his already rasping voice, "before I satisfy your curiosity and play with you, little lady." He drew back, determining if he didn't retreat, the disloyal throbbing hardness between his legs would stop at nothing to get what it wanted- her. And with that knowledge, Jed did what he should've done when she fell into his body- he let her go. Seeing the flash of relief in her eyes reassured Jed that he'd made the right decision. It appeared, for all the purring the kitty was doing, her nails weren't actually ready to give him a scratch, yet.
Jed went over to the window to close it. While latching the window, he caught her reflection in the mirror. She was going after his gun. "Don't even try it," he advised the little lady, who apparently hadn't learned not to touch something when it was hot.
She grimaced. Her head turned, and she met his reflection. "Wouldn't think of it," she smirked and crossed her arms over her heaving breasts...
5 Stars – Good Choice Reading "This book had me hooked from the first paragraph! I loved both the main characters and what they each brought to the story..."
5 Hearts – Romance Book Scene "Well written, great dialog and sex scenes. These two characters jump right off the page. I like an erotic romance that tells a story and the bedroom scenes become part of the story and not the plot..."
Kelly: Lora Leigh... and I can take her in only small doses because of it!
Ali: If you could co-write with another author who would it be and why?
Kelly: Ann Stuart, she's one of my Favs! As an Erotic Writer, I'd love to put a splash of naughty into her wonderful stories.
Ali: The world is under attack and you are forced to run for your life. You only have room for one book in your survival kit, what book do you take?
Kelly: It should be The Complete Book about Survival by Rainer Stahlberg but I'm thinking if I'm on the run it would have to be the first book that I can get my frantic hands on. Besides, I'm a busy gal, I rarely get the chance to read so I'm picky about what books I do buy, therefore, anything I have is sure to be a great read!
Ali: Who are your favorite literary characters? (Yours or someone else's)
Kelly: Oh, that would have to be the intelligent, witty, and very sassy, Juliana Pratt in Satisfying The Curse. Do you watch the TV series Bones? Juliana's a tad like Temperance Brennan. Her intelligence has her coming off as almost naïve but her inexperience doesn’t weaken her. She's actually one determined lady and nothing will stop her from getting what she wants!
Ali: If your friends were asked to describe you in one word what would it be?
Ali: Where do you do your best work?
Kelly: In my back room, it's away from everything, family included. There's a bare beige wall in front of me. It’s my imaginary movie screen and when I'm stumped, I stare at it until my story comes back to life.
Ali: Do you find it harder to write a full-length novel or novellas?
Kelly: I've only written novels. For the life of me, I can't see how I could put everything in a novella. It may come easy to other writers, but I shrill just thinking about it. It's like a nightmare of mine.
Ali: When did you fall in love...with writing?
Kelly: It had to be the first time I thought I was in love. All of the emotions in me, I just had to write them down. Poems, I'd say they were the start of my love for writing. I have some dreadfully awful ones somewhere in my basement! The paper is yellow, ink is wearing away, and the pages are torn but I can't seem to part with them.
Ali: Are you a plotter or fly by the seat of your pants writer?
Kelly: As enticing as a plotter may seem— taking your time, going slow and dragging it out— when it comes to my writing, I'm a fly by the seat of your pants kinda girl.
Ali: What is your favorite thing to do outside of writing?
Kelly: Because I'm only a panster when it comes to my writing, my other favorite thing to do is to be a plotter. My life revolves around the goals I set for myself from taking a much needed vacation to teaching my wonderful but trying teenager on how to drive— and that's fun but very stressful!
Favorite food: I'm a carb junky. I love Penne and anything: shrimp, veggies, olive oil...
Boots or heels: Boots w/heels
eReader or Print: eReader (love the adjustable font)
Social Media: Love it or Hate it I plead the fifth...
Beer, Liquor or Wine: liquor is quicker :)
Favorite place to get it on besides the bedroom: Can I plead the fifth again?
Favorite TV Show: In Plain Sight, Mary Shannon rocks but they're canceling the it :( . Runner up is the Vampire diaries (I'm all drools for Ian Somerhalder)
Favorite Book series (besides your own): JR Ward— The Black Dagger Brotherhood Series
Pj’s or Lingerie: Pj's - it's the same underneath no matter what I wear!
