Dare You: Part One Billie and Sawyer (Unchained Attraction Duets Series)

Synopsis

What would you do if a stranger deliberately kissed you?

What if that stranger was younger, hotter than hell and your husband had already traded you in for a much younger model?

Now what if his smoking hot kiss served as the ultimate payback for you being wronged… would you welcome it then?

Seeking sanctuary from a rainstorm inside a wine bar alone Billie Collier’s haven quickly became her hell when of all the places in New York City her soon-to-be ex-husband was also already in there, with his tall pretty homewrecker.

When another rain-soaked refugee swept inside dressed in a high dollar suit he does so with fear in his eyes. Drenched, Sawyer Wild breathed raggedly as he shrugged himself out of his jacket and quickly planted himself in the last empty chair in the wine bar—the one directly across from Billie.

Forced together by circumstance she seeks solace in Sawyer’s flirty banter which strokes her neglected ego, and as time passes and wine loosens her tongue she confesses Logan’s presence and her current humiliation.

Although relative strangers, he quickly relates to Billie’s desperate need to save face and with her curious husband approaching can Billie find her courage to trust and dare Sawyer when he offers her a chance to get even.

From the corner of my eye I saw Logan and cringed. The jolt of shock I felt had been of quite a different kind to the ones that Sawyer had stirred within me. Looking over Sawyer’s shoulder I watched as Logan spoke to the redhead I instinctively knew was my homewrecker.

As if it were gearing up for attack, my body immediately locked up as I braced myself and felt pressure on my mouth as my lips automatically pinched tightly together. Blood roared in my ears as my heart rate spiked when he turned and headed directly toward us.

Without turning around, Sawyer leaned over and slipped his hand into mine. I stared down at it, still in shock and he gave it a small squeeze. “I take it the man of the moment is behind us?” he muttered intuitively in a barely-there voice.

Turning my focus on Sawyer, I remained practically frozen and nodded slightly, too choked up from a sudden collective of warring emotions rising within from my chest to my throat.

Previously, I’d only seen a picture of Poppy. It had been tucked into Colby’s beach bag after a trip to Nantucket with them, shortly after his eighth birthday.

This woman’s face wasn’t all that, but she was ten years younger and had a body I could only dream of. My petite, boyish frame was nothing like the taller, curvy, buxom redhead I’d seen clinging possessively onto my cheating husband’s arm a moment before.

Staring confused by my thoughts into Sawyer’s eyes my feelings had fleetingly stretched from absurd to sublime. What the hell am I doing?

The girl Logan had chosen over me was everything I wasn’t. In fact, she was more suited to the young, gorgeous man staring intently back at me than she was to Logan.

“Trust me?” Sawyer questioned in a whisper, his serious hazel eyed gaze intense. I had little trust in any man, but without waiting for my answer he leaned further across the table and intimately swept my long damp hair behind my ear.

A small thrill shot down my back in stark contrast to the nerves crippling me as Logan moved closer. Sawyer undaunted by his approach swept the rest of my hair behind my shoulder with the back of his hand, exposing my neck.

Another quick burst of adrenaline unexpectedly erupted within me and instantly ignited feelings of desire I hadn’t realized I had missed until that very moment.

Fighting to ignore how my body was reacting, I convinced myself Sawyer was a brilliant actor. He genuinely looked as if he had wanted me and the tender unhurried way he had touched me had made me feel desired.

My heart had felt as if it were about to explode in reaction because, acting or not, it had been a very long time since any man had looked at me the way Sawyer did. When I wanted to lean into his hand for a more tangible connection I’d felt ridiculous, considering the circumstances, but I had still wanted to do it all the same.

With a soft smile like he got a kick out of making a show of us, his gaze rolled leisurely up my neck, traced across from my ear to my lips and his tongue immediately licked his own. I felt his weighted gaze crush in my chest until I could barely breathe and it dawned on me Sawyer’s brazen intent was to actually kiss me.

Title: Love According to Science
Series: Dirty Martini Running Club
Author: Claire Kingsley
Genre: Steamy Romantic Comedy
Release Date: January 23, 2020
Cover Designer: Kari March Designs

For psychology researcher Hazel Kiegen, science holds all the answers. Her decision to swear off dating? Totally backed by her own calculations. Just don’t ask about her missing orgasms. She hasn’t been able to science her way out of that little conundrum.

But her biggest problem? Corban Nash. He’s frustrating. Infuriating. And deliciously adorable, but that’s neither here nor there. He claims to have cracked the code to falling in love, and Hazel is determined to prove him wrong.

 

Corban Nash created the theory of accelerated intimacy after numerous successful tests on his friends and family. Every couple who used his questionnaire fell in love, until Corban found himself the last single guy in his social circle, and a groomsman in dozens of weddings.
The only problem is, it’s never worked on him. And science hasn’t explained why.
Despite being the lone aberrant data point, Corban believes in his research, and with his new job, he’ll have the resources to prove it. Verifying his theory right under the nose of his nemesis, Hazel Kiegen? Even better.
There isn’t a theory in existence that will make Hazel fall in love with Corban. Not even with his sexy half-smile and temptingly muscular body. But from the moment these two rivals meet, sparks fly. And when they put his questionnaire to the test, the results aren’t what either of them expect.

It’s easier to be loved than to love.
Nadia has a past. A messy past full of grief, suffering, and regret. Broken and fragile, she’s scared to share her secrets and struggles to move on.
Until he comes along. A handsome face; an athletic build; the strength he emanates. He’s everything she needs to regain control of her emotions. He’s the flicker of light at the end of a dark tunnel.
But she refuses to take advantage of what he offers, too scared it’ll backfire.
Thomas carries a burden. A heavy burden that left him numb. He hides behind the mask of a playboy, refusing to feel, convinced that fate made a mistake and his job is to fix it. In his orderly world, there’s no place for joy and happiness.
Until she comes along. A beautiful face; a petite body; a sea of sadness in her eyes. She flips his world upside down with one look, and maybe – just maybe, there is a reason why he’s still breathing.
Except she’s his best friend’s off-limits little sister and if he touches her, she might just be the reason he stops breathing.

Cover Reveal/Giveaway/Excerpt

Title: Whatever It Takes 
Author: S. Jones
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 6, 2020
Cover Design: ME Kusel at Steamy Designs
Photographer: Lindee Robinson Photography
Cover Models: Shelby Smith and Andrew Kruczynski
 
It’s been seven years since Quinn Walker ended our engagement.


I’ve moved on, married his enemy, and started my own family.

Everything was perfect…until it wasn’t. My new life was a lie, and my husband turned out to be a fraud. The man that I married was now a wanted fugitive, and my ex-fiancé was the cop who was intent on making him pay.

He’s convinced that a simple apology and a dimpled smile is enough to fix that broken heart that he tore apart years ago.

I’ll do whatever it takes to keep him at a distance. Yet, all it takes is one kiss, one touch for me to remember how great our love was before he threw it away.

Little does he know that I’m not the young, foolish girl who he left behind. If he thinks he can waltz back into my life like the past never happened, he has another thing coming.

I can accept that fate sent him back to me. Now, I need to assure my foolish heart that this means nothing.

Her hands slid along my sides, leaving a trail of heat in their path. That familiar spark came to life. “I’ve never stopped loving you, Quinn. That was always the problem, I loved you too much. But I can’t do this with you now. My life is a mess.”

I battled with the urge to kiss her. To claim her. To remind her that she had always been mine. But she was right, we had a mountain of issues to work through. When I asked her to marry me, we were both young and naïve. It didn’t matter how much love and passion there was in our relationship. Whatever hope for a future we had, I thoroughly destroyed. And that asshat capitalized it. Now it was my turn to try to fix it and get us back to where we were meant to be.

Together.

“I’m going to do whatever it takes to make you see that I’m checking back into your life. I know you think I left you, but I never really let you go.” A tear fell and I pushed it away with my thumb. “I’m here to stay this time. I promise you.”

“Don’t make promises you can’t keep. The last time you did you broke every single one, including my heart.”
