2011 is gonna be a cracker. Aside from The Fearless Maverick, my offering to the Presents “Bad Blood Collection”, hitting the UK shelves June, and a book scheduled in the next Desire Texas Cattleman’s Club series lineup later this year – (some great names included, like Maureen Child and Brenda Jackson!) - I have a true ‘romance of the heart’ due out in North America this month, February for those Downunder.
Which happens to be perfect timing for the launch of LoveCats’ brand new regular weekly post to highlight upcoming releases in the most tantalizing way. We like to call it...
Amnesiac Ex: Unforgettable Vows (Desire – NA Jan. 2011)
For better...for worse...forever?
The last woman Samuel Bishop expected to have in his arms was his ex-wife. Left with amnesia from an accident, Laura had no memory of their bitter divorce. In her mind, she and the business tycoon were still newlyweds. With her ready to pick up where she thought their scorching-hot marriage had left off, he couldn’t turn her down.
But soon Bishop realized he was playing with fire. He wanted to reclaim the wedding bliss this Laura had shown him, but what would happen when her memory returned?
And what would happen if it didn’t?
“Need some help?”
Laura’s voice, coming from directly behind, found a way through the fog. A moment later, her palms were sculpting over his shoulders and arms. As the contact lit fires all through his body, instinctively Bishop leant back into her touch. She pressed a kiss between his shoulder blades and as her grip hardened on his upper arms, he closed his eyes and tried to stay lucid.
“Of course, we don’t have to wear anything at all,” she purred and her hands filed down his arms, arrowing over his hips, finally finding and wrapping around the weight confined beneath his trousers.
A whirlwind of darkest desire spiralled through him. His hand covered hers and pressed in as his mind went deliciously blank but for the need to have her again. To drown in her kisses and fill her with his –
Coming to with a jolt, Bishop pried her hand away. Clamping down on the frenzied heat racing through his veins, he turned to her and forced his mouth to curve into a breezy smile.
“You’re certainly persuasive.”
“And you are dying to say yes.” Her gaze heavy with want, she reached up on tiptoe and tugged his bottom lip with her teeth.
A fireball shot to the top of his inner thighs and ignited a very short fuse. When her hands filed around his unshaven jaw and her mouth opened over his, Bishop shuddered and leaned into her kiss. With lava flooding his veins, every cell in his body cried out for more. Then her mouth opened wider, inviting him in deeper. Wanting to possess her, his hands found her shoulders and winged them in.
She tasted the same. Felt the same. And now he knew he was the same hungry man who craved to be with his wife.
She hummed in her throat and the vibration released bright-tipped sparks in his belly that unleashed an inferno a few inches below that. Instinctively one hand left her shoulder and searched out her breast. As his touch grazed the soft pert mound, his tongue dipped deeper, running over hers, and any sense of right or wrong vanished beneath the blistering force of mutual need.
Her hands were fanning beneath his shirt but when he rolled her nipple between finger and thumb, she found his other hand and brought it to the join between her thighs. His fingers speared down. She wore no panties. He felt her damp and ready beneath the satin of her negligee. Pushed to his limits, he groaned against her lips.
“This always felt so right.”
“Make love to me, Bishop,” she murmured back.
“You don’t know how much I want to.”
“Oh, but I do.”
He felt her grin against his lips, her palm slid down and the pressure built to flashpoint.
Like no other couple I’ve written, Laura and Sam Bishop so deserve a second chance at keeping their happily ever after.
