Mysti Holiday - An Author I Know and So Should You!
Hi! Tomorrow, my dear friend Mysti Holiday stops by the blog to talk about her new work, Shut Up and Kiss Me. Now, I have to admit, I did get to read this one early and it was totally worth the read. It's a Scarlet Rose story from the Wild Rose Press and you can get it here.
Want the blurb?
Here you go:
Kasey Davenport and Cole Roberts—adversaries since junior high when Cole did nothing but pull her hair, snap her bra strap and tease her mercilessly—find themselves unexpectedly thrown together when Kasey is in town on a layover. As always, sparks fly between them, but this time the attraction simmering close to the surface explodes into a passion neither of them expected or wanted.
After years of mutual avoidance and denying their attraction, can Kasey and Cole stop arguing long enough to discover if what they feel will last more than just one night?
Want an excerpt?
Here you go:
“Look,” he said. “You can stay. I’m on call this week anyway and working a million hours. I probably won’t be around much.”
“Still working for the nuthouse?” she taunted.
“The psychiatric hospital, yes. I’m nearly done with my residency.”
“Ooh...then you’ll officially be Dr. Jerk.” She got to her feet, and tipped her head back to see his face. She was normally at least eye level to a man, but Cole had more than his fair share of inches. She wondered if he had more than his fair share of inches somewhere else, too. Her tongue darted out to moisten her suddenly dry lips and her gaze slipped down to his zipper.
“You’re going to want to stop doing that, Kase.” Cole’s voice rumbled low in his throat.
“Doing what, Cole?” She was less than a foot from the man and her fingers itched to grab hold of him and yank that body against hers—a desire she’d had since she found out just how much fun a man’s cock could be. Maybe even before then.
“Looking like you’re ready to have me for dinner.”
His hands squeezed into tight fists at his side, and she was amazed to find quite a bulge in the front of his jeans. For her? He’d never shown the slightest bit of interest before, but there was no mistaking his interest now. Maybe it was time to dance with the devil.
“Mmm...now that you mention it, I am hungry.” A slow smile lifted the corners of her mouth and she raised her gaze from his crotch to his eyes—brown eyes so intense they nearly pierced a hole straight through to her heart. There was no denying her desire, or his. “Care to feed me?”
Yup, you gotta come back tomorrow. See you then.
