Edited Excerpt from Just Beyond the Garden Gate:

Laurie shivered.

“You’re cold.” He rose from the bed and strode to the fire to add more peat, presenting his back to her.

His body glistened in the firelight. Magnificent. His broad muscular back slimmed to a trim waist and a great butt. A firm, nicely rounded backside. The kind she wanted to reach out and squeeze. Her palms itched to touch him again.

He swung around and caught her staring.

Laurie drew in a deep breath. A smile that was purely male gave him a devilish appearance. He flexed his shoulders. Tightened his abs. Her stomach fluttered. A tingly sensation radiated throughout her whole body.
 
She loved this man. She'd never wanted anything more than what she had now—Patrick. They belonged to one another, completely and without reserve.

  8. I love an Alpha hero, dominant but not bossy. Generally I prefer paranormals, so I am all about bear shifters...yum, grouchy brawny fellas who know their way around some sweets!

    My hot Autumn night involves hot cocoa, my snuggie and a good book! And my honey to cuddle with!
