And now for today's Sunday Smooch from her Knight In Shining Armour by Robyn Rychards ........

 She may not need a knight in shining armour to save her, but that doesn’t mean she’s going to look a gift knight in the visor...

Paisley doesn’t need a knight in shining armour to rescue her from her high-powered, abusive ex-husband. She’s got it covered on her own: she's changed her name, liquidated her assets, and has a plan to disappearin the Rocky Mountain National Park. 

Psychiatrist Sterling James has absolutely no intention of being anyone’s saviour. The only woman he has any time for is his sister. But circumstances change when Sterling finds Paisley in an unexpected and life-threatening situation. Brought in to the drama of her escape, Sterling finds himself invested, and he can't move on until he knows Paisley is going to be safe.

It should be a simple enough exercise to get Paisley out of the park and into her new life. But nothing is ever as simple as it should be, and Sterling soon discovers that even if her ex-husband buys the set-up, he might not be able to watch Paisley go... 

Kiss Scene.....

Paisley stiffened at the unexpected action. She didn’t want to get sucked into their physical attraction again. It made everything much more difficult. Complicated. What she really wanted was to pretend it didn’t exist. Which worked for about a millisecond. Until he planted another. And then another. Over and over, nibbling, caressing, licking, shifting her head to different positions as he did so, as though he wanted to savor every angle and corner of her mouth.

With a sense of desperation, Paisley grabbed at the waistband of his pants with her good hand. The back of her fingers felt like they were touching a flame as they rested against his hard abdomen. She held on tight, her nails biting into the denim, afraid her knees were going to buckle and she’d end up in a puddle at his feet. And no doubt that would draw the attention they were trying to avoid. It was very disorienting to have their mouths the only parts of their bodies that were pressed together. Disorienting and unbelievably sensual. It felt like through his mouth he touched every other part of her in ways she’d never known she could be touched.

Eventually, ending the contact with obvious reluctance, he rested his forehead on hers, their breathing labored. The park rangers were long gone and her pounding heart had nothing to do with the fear of being discovered.

‘Hot damn!’ he whispered before adding after a pause, ‘As much as I’m enjoying it, you’re going to have to take your hand out of my pants…’ Drawing away from her as soon as she quickly released him, he picked up the walking stick she had once again dropped. Handing it to her, his eyes burning with frustrated desire, he ran a tongue over his bottom lip and said, ‘Unbelievable.’ He gave his head a slight shake. ‘You sure are having a hard time holding on to that stick.’

Taking it from him, she bit back the suggestive remark that sprang to her lips. No sense adding fuel to a fire that needed to be put out. They had more important things to take care of right now. Though she couldn’t resist looking at him with raised brows and saying, ‘You do have a knack for making me feel that “f” word, Sterling.’

Come back next Sunday, when the winner of today's giveaway will be announced and another smooch will be posted!


  1. I love Sterling's response when the kiss ended, Robyn. LOL

    I liked camping much more when I was younger. Every summer when my dad finished teaching we'd head out on a road trip vacation. 5 kids and 2 adults in a car (pre A/C) with tent and sleeping bags in a car top carrier. The best times were when we stayed in one place for a few days and could enjoy the area. The worst were the times my dad would make us put up the tent in the dark, the driving rain or even in the snow (in higher elevations). I've seen 48 states in the US this way.

    Now, give me glamping or a good hotel/motel any day. :D

    1. I didn't see as much of the United States as you did camping as a child, Marcy, but I did see quite a bit, as well as Canada, but by the time I was an adult, I was OVER it. Done a little bit of glamping since as my husband is a camper but good hotel/motel is my choice for sure. I do feel bad for my kids though, that they don't get to have the same experience as I did as a child. And I still love me a road trip!

  2. Hi ladies

    I have to say I have read this book and very much enjoyed it :)

    I have never been camping not sure if it is something I would like to try I do like my creature compforts :)

    Have Fun

    1. Thanks for stopping by Helen. So glad you enjoyed the book! Though I don't enjoy camping, having done it, I say it's something you should at least try once. There are a lot of enjoyable aspects to it!

  3. Smashing Smooch, Robyn! HER KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOUR sounds like a great read!

    As for camping - I adore it! And tend to wax lyrical on the blog at regular intervals about our camping adventures! LOL Though in lots of ways, my introduction to camping was less than wonderful. It was never something my family did - but when I was 12 years old, a teacher took my class camping one weekend. It was pretty disastrous really - I cut my finger with a pocket knife on day one (still have the scar!) and then it rained on us that night and we got flooded out. We had to get up in the dark and dig trenches around the edges of the tents. They were big old canvas jobs with no floor built in.

    1. Hi Sharon! Glad you like the sound of my book! Your camping adventure sounds like a nightmare. One that I've lived as well! Glad to hear it didn't turn you off the whole thing. You are a born camper!

  5. don't like anything about it

  6. Her Knight in Shining Armour sounds fabulous, Robyn!

    We used to do the camping in a caravan park thing when I was a kid -- and I loved it. But these days I want the mod cons -- preferably in a 5 star hotel. ;-)

    1. I'm right with you Michelle! A lot of my camping trips as a child were the same way, but I prefer 5 star these days. Not that I get it... ;) Though I was able to stay in a suite at the Disneyland Hotel once. Awesome.

  7. I went camping once as a kid & barely remember it. My husband has taken each of my kids individually & I had no desire to go.

    1. That's great, Sharlene, that the kids get to experience it even though it's not something you'd like to do.
