Always A Marine, Book 3
Decadent Publishing (1NS)
Contemporary Erotic Military Romance
PFC James Westwood wasn't a typical Marine. A clinical psychologist who devotes time to his brothers by working at Mike’s Place, James recognizes that his band of brothers need a helping hand on their journey home. When Captain Dexter encouraged everyone to sign up for the 1Night Stand dating service, Westwood committed himself, what did he have to lose?
The last thing he expected was screen goddess Lauren Kincaid.
Movie star Lauren Kincaid grew up splitting her time between the cold reality of the Hollywood scene and her family home in Plano, Texas After two decades of artificial friendships and inflated egos, her greatest desire is to meet a real man, not a Hollywood talking head. Her agent suggested the 1Night Stand service for its discretion and exclusivity. When she arranged to meet her date at Dallas' famed Sybarite Club, she wasn't sure what she was expecting, but the gorgeous psychologist with rapier wit blew her expectations away.
Everyone needs someone to hear them.
James and Lauren share an unmistakable connection, but when one of James’ patients suffers a crisis, Lauren more than proves her mettle. Can one night turn into happily ever after for this Marine and his movie star?
A curl of excitement twisted in his gut. He'd planned to keep this low key, but the club, the music and the atmosphere teased his anticipation. The waitress halted with a sweep of her arm to allow him to precede her.
“Can I get you anything, Mr. Westwood?”
“Soda water with lime, please.” He preferred to keep his wits about him. “And bottle of whatever the lady is having.” If they were going to have a dinner, the least he could do was provide her with her preferred wine.
Free of the waitress' distraction he turned back to the booth. His fingertips rested against the table as the golden-haired goddess looked up at him. Sea-blue eyes seemed to catch every drop of light in the room and reflect it in shimmering azure as she rose to offer him her hand.
“James?” Milk and honey flowed through her voice and his spine straightened, his cock already jerking into a salute. “I'm…”
“Lauren Kincaid.” He could only hope he wasn't drooling like a lovesick fool. Lauren Kincaid, a goddess of the silver screen, was his one night stand?
Her laughter, low and throaty, dragged his open mouth into a smile. Shaking off his shock, he took her extended hand and shook it carefully. Her slender fingers seemed totally engulfed by his and he didn't want to squeeze her with excitement.
“It's a pleasure to meet you.”
“Ma'am, you have no idea.” His date was Lauren Kincaid. The only chick flick star he would pay money to see with or without a date.
A meme popped up on Facebook the other day that said something like a reader gets to live thousands of lives before they die, and I can’t help but think that’s even more true for a writer.
When I met James, I knew he’d been Logan’s therapist. I knew he was older than they were by just a few years. When he enlisted, he was only a few clinical hours short of his certification as a psychologist. In the Marines, he was a Private First Class. An enlisted man and he served with his brothers and became one of them.
After completing his contract, he finished his degree and came to Mike’s Place. He’s great at his job because he is one of them, he gets his fellow Marines the way few others would. He’s settled, he’s stable and he’s strong. So what do you give a guy like that?
You give him a fantasy come true. You give him a movie star, one he’s long admired, and you set them up for romantic night. While it didn’t go exactly as planned with more than a few bumps in the road, James and Lauren discovered that magic doesn’t just happen on the big screen and that life can be better than a chick flick.
Fun, light, romantic fantasy with a splash of reality to keep us all grounded. If you could have a dream date with an actor (or actress), who would it be?
