Excerpt from Win Me (The Outback Bachelor Ball, Book 1)

Finally. Ellie had waited for Rick’s kiss for what felt like her entire life. Her breath caught in her throat and when he lowered his lips to hers it was everything she’d dreamed of.

His mouth greeted hers softly at first, testing and tasting, nibbling the corners of her lips in a way that made her mouth curl in a smile. She felt him smile, too, and they moved closer, into each other’s arms. He slid his tongue along the seam of her lips and she opened, welcoming him. His tongue swept over hers, stroking and caressing. The pressure of his mouth became more urgent, more demanding and emotion gave way to carnality. She’d always believed kissing Rick would be erotic but she wasn’t prepared for how he set her every raw nerve ending alight.

His hand skimmed down her back to grab her and haul her close. His body was, oh, good Lord, so hard. Pretty words were nice to hear but the heated steel of him burning through the thin fabric of her dress showed her without a doubt how he felt.

He wanted her. He wanted her, Ellie.

And she wanted him, God help her. She dragged his free hand, the one still in her hair, down to her breast. His palm brushed lightly across as if he was deciding how far he was going to go with this. And then with a groan he cupped his hand over her and his thumb and forefinger closed around her nipple. The electric sensation made her body jerk and she accidentally bit his lower lip. Warmth and the copper taste of blood only heightened the animal urges, compelling her to grind her hips against his.

She shocked herself with her actions. In this dress she was a different person – bolder, sexier, flaunting her body, and not afraid to take what she wanted. She bet if she asked to go to his swag now he wouldn’t say no.

Excerpt from Making Bad Choices

Page 169

“If I think you might disappear on me, I’ll just be thinking about that all night, and I don’t want to have to deal with that shit. Just not worth going for me,” Culter said.

Wow, he made me feel like I was his odious chore, that was nice. I found it ridiculous that he was giving me a hard time about going off with people.

“Just go do your thing, Culter, I’ll be fine.” I might have put a fair dose of insinuation into my words, but the whole conversation was bugging me. I stood, gathering my makeup from the floor as I did.

“What’s my thing?”

“Like I know,” I mumbled.

“Sounds like you think you know,” he said. He stood too, stepping a little closer.

“It doesn’t matter.” I threw my stuff onto my bed.

He stepped in even closer, way too close, and smirked down at me. “Come on, I want to know. What’s my thing, Cassie?”

I licked my lips, before saying, “Threesomes.”

His smirk only grew. “Is that your thing, too?”
