Sunday Smooch by Amy Andrews

Welcome to another LoveCats DownUnder Sunday Smooch!

Today we have a smooch from  Amy Andrews but first 

... the winner of last week's Sunday Smooch Giveaway is ....Marcy Shuler

Can you please contact sue.mackay56 (at)yahoo  (dot) com to receive your copy of The Midwife's Son........

And now for today's Sunday Smooch from The Billionaire Claims His Wife....

Amy says - This is a medical novella of mine from quite a few years back that was re-released digitally last year with a fertility expert hero and a vet heroine. Nathan is the first billionaire I ever wrote and because I didn't know how to write such a wealthy man I struck him down with a horrible flu and left him ill and naked and at the mercy of Jacqueline, his hippy ex :-)  Unfortunately they put an ugly, non-cover cover on it and its rotted in obscurity  :-(  but a new cover is coming which I'm very excited about so please ignore the non-cover below :-)

Blurb - Successful and sexy, Nathan Trent is a man who has everything, except the wife he loved and lost! Now he wants her back - to help secure a vital business deal - and Jacqui reluctantly agrees. Neither expected their temporary 'reunion' to be so shockingly hot - or for Nathan to ask her to stay

 Scene set-up
Nathan and Jacqui are going out to dinner with a business associate who thinks they're still married.....

They left the apartment and entered the lift. It ascended and dinged shortly after and Nathan gestured for her to precede him. “Now remember, we’re newly reconciled,” he said moving down the hallway with her. “Are you sure you can carry that off?”
“I’ll be fine,” Jacqui nodded. 
She was surprised to hear the sudden edge of tension lacing his voice.  
“Really?” He stopped at Vince’s door. “I don’t think I can stress how important this is, Jacq.”
That much was obvious. “Relax. Trust me.”
She knew she could keep her end of the bargain. Memories of loving Nate came easily. But he was suddenly looking too tense. Too serious. She frowned. Where was Mr-Sure-Of-Himself? Shouldn’t she be the nervous one? 
If he went in there looking like this he would be the one to blow their cover, not her.
Nathan looked at her for confirmation his gaze falling straight down into the deep v of her cleavage to the unfettered splendour beneath. Oh god, how was he supposed to concentrate on pulling this off when she was braless? 
“Jesus, Jacqui. Couldn’t you have least worn a bra?”
Jacqueline arched a brow unsure of whom this uptight man before her was. What the hell was the matter with him? She had to do something. Fast. Then she smiled.
She casually pushed the door bell and turned to him. “That’s nothing.” She took a step closer so their bodies were touching and raised herself slightly on her toes, pressing her mouth against his ear. “I’m not wearing any underwear either.”
Nathan felt the breath stutter to a halt in his lungs as a surge of pure, high-octane lust zinged at warp speed through his system. He pulled away slightly. 
His husky warning curved her lips further. She pulled his head down and slammed a kiss against his lips that she hoped would live with him way after the ink was dry on their divorce papers. His greedy response, the plunder of his tongue and the harsh suck of his breath told her it just might.
Jacqueline pulled away satisfied with the result even if naked need roared in her head urging her to continue. 
Now he looked like a man who’d been in bed for a week with a lover.

  1. Amy, what a fun kiss! I bet Jacqui keeps him off balance. ;)

    I love the alpha and the beta heroes. Nothing like diversity!

  2. Thanks Rach. Jacqui definitely keeps him off balance :-)

  3. Love the excerpt, Amy, and I love Jacqui! :-)

    Hmm…as for alpha and beta heroes… It seems to me that too many alphas are power-hungry jerks with a ludicrous sense of entitlement and no respect for women. I like strong men who have enough sense to treat people well, regardless of their gender -- so if an alpha can come up with those goods I'll love him. If not then I'll chose a beta (or better yet a gamma). :-)

  4. Oh yes Michelle - a Gamma man is my type too, definitely :-)
    Unfortunately I've read too many alpha jerk heroes. Hell I've even written one for a continuity once! So I know what you mean!

  5. I think I'm a Beta-lover. Or at least a Beta who's pretending to be an Alpha. My favourite books are the ones where the heroine has the hero completely and consistently freaked out, which seems to be where Nathan is heading!

    1. Yes Avril - they're my favourite books too. I love a flummoxed hero and if he's an Alpha its even sweeter :-)

  6. Alpha male all the way and wow, love to see where that goes ;) Nice excerpt Amy

    1. Thanks Jan :-)
      I'll put you down in the Alpha column!

  7. Amy

    How did they get to the meeting after athat kiss :)

    You what I am happy with either depending on the heroine in the story sorry sitting on the fence on this one :) love the excerpt

    Have Fun

  8. It was difficult to concentrate Helen :-)
    I'll put you down on the fence :-)

  9. Fabulous Smooch, Amy! I'm loving Jacqui and the way she's thrown Nate for a loop! What fun!

    As for Alpha vs Beta heroes - I'm partial to both!

  10. First thing: Thank you so much, Sue! I've emailed you. :)

    That was a cute way to distract a nervous man, Amy. LOL I'll read both alpha and beta heroes, but I have a soft spot for the betas. I believe even betas have a little alpha in them when it comes to their woman.

    Marcy Shuler

    1. I agree Marcy. I think the best Betas have the heart of an Alpha when required!

  11. It depends on the story. I like both types of heroes. Sometimes, Alphas get a bit pushy and think too much of themselves. A heroine who is sure of herself won't put up with that for long.

    1. You raise a good point, Pat. The joy of an Alpha is seeing him with a heroine just as strong who's not going to take any of his Me-Tarzan crap!
