Enemy Lovers: Laura’s Sexy Date

My Sexy Saturday

This week’s theme is My Sexy Date. Not every couple falls in love at first sight. Sure, many do know the moment they see someone but what about those who don’t. They go on dates. Sometimes lots of dates. Sometimes not enough dates. Hopefully there is at least one they can consider a sexy date. The type where fireworks goes off from the moment they are picked up. This week is about those dates that turn into that special one…

I have a new release due out this coming week—well, two actually. First is Enemy Lovers on 10 February and Favored by Felix on 13 February. Today I’m featuring Enemy Lovers, a contemporary romance set in Napier and the fictional town of Clare, New Zealand.

Funnily enough, my characters never seem to date, but here’s a conversation that takes place shortly after Laura and Dallas first meet.

His dark brows rose. “Are you sure you should be doing this?”

God, she loved listening to him speak. So masculine. He oozed confidence, and it was a sexy thing. “I’m attracted to you. We have an opportunity, so why not indulge ourselves?”

“What about my reputation?”

“I’ve never heard anything bad about you.” But she’d heard envy and pissed from Aaron when Dallas had moved on a woman her brother wanted.

“How do I know you’re not playing me? That you’re not gonna call rape once the weekend is done.”

She gaped at him, appalled he’d suspect her capable of such despicable behavior. “If you’re not interested, tell me. I’m not in favor of coercion either.”

“And she’s back.” Amusement darkened his eyes. “The crisp touch-me-not princess has returned.”

“Fuck off,” she snapped.

Ooh, gutter mouth. I bet your mother would instruct the housekeeper to soap your mouth for that one.”

Enemy Lovers


Love might be waiting in enemy territory…

Clare Chronicles, Book 2

When Dallas O’Grady’s attention is hooked by a sexy rear end bent over a flat tire, he naturally pulls over to help. Then he gets a look at her face and realizes she’s one of those Drummonds.

The Drummonds and the O’Gradys might both live in the town of Clare, but they’ve never played nice, not since a generations-old feud started over a cache of stolen gold nuggets.

Laura Drummond has fought long and hard to grip independence by the throat and avoid her mother’s bulldozing attempts to control her life. She’s always admired Dallas from afar, and she’s pleased to discover that up close, he’s gorgeous, sexy, and nothing like the monster her family has painted.

When the road home is blocked, she’s forced to accept his offer of a bed for the night. One thing leads to another, and soon burning hot-desire melts into thoughts of forging a permanent relationship—damn their families’ disapproval.

But the feud isn’t the only thing conspiring to keep the lovers apart. And the clock is ticking…

Warning: Contains lovers determined to challenge the status quo, lots of sexy times, and a feud that just might destroy all their hopes for a happy future.
