SAMPLE

“You’re one hell of a woman, Fate.”

“And you’re one hell of a smooth talker, Gabe.”

He grinned. “Actually, if you knew me better, you’d know I’m a straight shooter.”

She didn’t want to go there. For some reason talking about shooting anything left her head spinning. “I need to go to the bathroom.” She grabbed her purse, scooted to the end of the bench, and stood, but immediately dropped back down.

The world was rocking under her feet like a moonwalk.

Guess I’ve had more beer than I thought, and how the hell had that happened?

“Are you all right?” Gabe was right next to her again.

“I’m fine. Just got a bad start the first time. I’ll try again.” She stood, and the world dipped and tipped. Her head swam. Two beers did that to her? Sheesh!

On legs that felt like they were tied to anchors, she slowly propelled herself through the crushing crowd to the bathroom. And after peeing a gallon, she checked herself in the mirror—not a pretty sight—and headed back to tell Gabe she needed to call it a night.

When she returned to the table, Gabe stood. “Ready to go?” he asked, car keys in hand.

“Yup. Where’s Michael?”

“He left. Had a personal issue to deal with. Said he’d see you tomorrow.” Gabe took her hand.

She sort of leaned into him as she walked. He didn’t sway like the rest of the world did.

When she got to her car, she fished through her purse for her keys. When she hit the bottom, and still no keys, a tide of panic rose up her throat. “My keys! I must have lost them in the bathroom.”

“I’ll find them later. Why don’t you let me drive you home?”

“No, all I need to do is go back inside.” She took a step back toward the entry, but something caught her by the waist. “What the hell?” She looked down. Hands. She glanced over her shoulder. “Would you let me go?”

He spun her around until she was facing him directly.

Not a good position. He was so close. He smelled so good. He towered at least a head taller than her. Perfect height. Perfect width. Solid. Hard. Sexy...

He leaned down and dropped a kiss on her nose. “You’re a very important part of the new Single Temptation. I couldn’t let anything happen to you, now, could I?”

What?

“So, let’s go to my car, and I’ll drive you home.” He didn’t remove his hands from her waist.

“You’re driving me home for the sake of the company?”

“Partly...” He glanced over her shoulder and smiled. “Okay, I confess. I’m worried about you for personal reasons. Don’t you feel it, Fate? That old magic?”

“No.” Liar!

His handsome face screwed into the picture of confusion. “Really?”

Actually, what she felt right now went way beyond what she’d felt in college. Had to be the Oregon lager. Probably had twice the alcohol content. “We have to work together, at least for the time being. We’d better keep things professional...” Her gaze dropped to his lips as he licked them, and she felt her own go Sahara Desert dry.

He leaned closer, and her eyelids fell closed.

His mouth touched hers, and an A-bomb exploded in her body. Shockwaves pulsed outward to her limbs and knocked her brain loose from its connections.

She wrapped her arms around his neck and held on for life, relishing the lazy, deliberate exploration Gabe was performing on her mouth. His fingers kneaded her waist then tiptoed up her sides. Hers tangled in silky curls at his nape.

By God, she’d lost her mind!

Meet the Author

Nothing exciting happens in Tawny Taylor's life, unless you count giving the cat a flea dip--a cat can make some fascinating sounds when immersed chin-deep in insecticide--or chasing after a houseful of upchucking kids during flu season. She doesn't travel the world or employ a staff of personal servants. She's not even built like a runway model. She's just your run-of-the-mill Detroit suburban mom and wife.


That's why she writes, for the sheer joy of it. She doesn't need to escape, mind you. Despite being run-of-the-mill, her life is wonderful. She just likes to add some...zip.


Her heroines might resemble herself, or her next door neighbor (sorry Sue), but they are sure to be memorable (she hopes!). And her heroes--inspired by movie stars, her favorite television actors or her husband--are fully capable of delivering one hot happily-ever-after after another. Combined, the characters and plots she weaves bring countless hours of enjoyment to Tawny...and she hopes to readers too!


In the end, that's all the matters to Tawny, bringing a little bit of zip to someone else's life.


And she loves hearing from readers!! Drop her a note anytime! tawnytaylor@sbcglobal.net.

    Sweet and sexy

    Fate and Gabe's story is hot and sweet. Gabe never stopped loving Fate after their relationship 6 years ago in college fell apart. Now, they are thrown together after a hostile takeover at work. Was it fate that brought these two back together? Hmmm....who knows, but it sure is sexy.

    Dynamic

    Fast read that grabs your attention with heady scenes that remind you of the 50 Shades trilogy! It was my first time reading Tawny's writings, but it won't be my last!

    A let down

    I feel the writer should have spent more time on the authenticity of the story line. The sex scenes were rushed and cheesy. The hero was made to look like an immature horn- dog, while the heroine hadno focus or control of her own fate. The story did not flow well. However the author did wrap up loss ends.
