When Knox Wellington opens the door to Charlie Davenport, he's not expecting the fiery brunette with whiskey colored eyes and a feisty personality. Sparks fly immediately, even though their initial meeting is nothing but hostile. Their chemistry is undeniable, but the chip on Knox's shoulder threatens to destroy any hope of him wooing the sweet, southern volunteer sent to help with his rehabilitation.
Little does he know she's no Southern Belle, as she gives as good as she can take. As unexpected circumstances push them closer together, heads butt, patience is tested, and flames ignite as they dance around their mutual attraction, both of them jaded from broken pasts.
They've both been burned before, so when their feelings of lust, desire, and wanting are inflamed in the heat of the moment, will they finally be able to getover the pain of the past or will their relationship be reduced to ashes before it can ever really begin?
“What’s the matter, Charlie? I promise, I won’t bite… unless you’re into that sort of thing.” He pauses, and I can feel my skin blush as his eyes wander down my body and then back up again where his eyes rest on my lips. “Because if so, then I most certainly do.”
“Whether you bite or not is none of my concern, and as far as what I’m into… that’s none of your business,” I say, a little too quickly, causing him to chuckle.
His eyes are hooded and he looks at me for a moment before responding.
“Don’t worry, sweetheart. You don’t have to tell me your deep, dark secrets today. We have plenty of time for that. But I won’t forget that you didn’t say no.” He winks, stepping back from me, as if he’s forcing me to come to him. I’m not some plaything he can mess with, so I just cross my arms and stare at him. A worthy adversary, he stands stoically in place, not moving, as if he could play this game all day.
I'm a twenty six year old book junkie who is also obsessed with sports. Bengals, Buckeyes, Reds are my teams! I work for the government during the day, hang out with Air National Guard on the weekends, and am married to a guy 15 inches taller than me. We're quite the pair! We currently live right outside of Dayton, OH with our two cats.
I've been reading since I was a kid. My mom was a librarian, so it was a given. Heck, she even made sure we watched Wishbone instead of the Smurfs. In 2011 when I graduated from college, my mom bought me a Nook, and then in the summer of 2012 I found this amazing site called Goodreads. I was introduced to so many amazing indie/self-published authors. After reading almost 400 books that year, my husband gave me the push to finally sit down and write my own. It was a rocky start, but over time the words started flowing and I couldn't get Jace and Lexi out of my head.
If I’m not writing or looking through tons of photos of hot men, all in the name of research, then you can probably find me curled up with my Kindle, ignoring the rest of the world. I love my sports almost as much as I love my books. My other obsessions include red wine, hot men, country music, and all things Grace Potter.
