Slow Ride by Carrie Alexander

When three women go to a "lock and key" party to meet sexy singles, they never expect to find their perfect love and in bed!

When Aurora "Rory" Constable and Tucker Schulz are thrown together at a "lock and key" party, the attraction is undeniable. Despite the simmering sexual tension between them, they decide to fight their feelings and just be friends...until they win a weekend together to explore all the other ways they could fit together....

With Tucker's skillful hands all over her before they even set out, Rory is soon hot and bothered. Cooling down with the resort's specialty drink—liquid sex—isn't likely to help! How is she going to maintain her "friends only" no-sex vow when she's this close to a man she wants day and night?

About the Author

There was never any doubt that Carrie Alexander would have a creative career. As a two-year-old, she imagined dinosaurs on the lawn. By six it was witches in the bedroom closet. Soon she was designing elaborate paper-doll wardrobes and writing stories about Teddy the Bear.

Eventually she graduated to short horror stories and oil paints. She was working as an artist and a part-time librarian when she ";discovered"; her first romance novel and thought, ";Hey, I can write one of these!"; So she did.

Carrie is now the author of several books for various Harlequin lines, with many more crowding her imagination, demanding to be written. She has been a RITA and Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice finalist, but finds her greatest reward in becoming friends with her readers, even if it's only for the length of a book.

Carrie lives in the upper peninsula of Michigan, where the long winters still don't give her enough time to significantly reduce her to-be-read mountains of books. When she's not reading or writing (which is rare), Carrie is painting and decorating her own or her friends' houses, watching football, and shoveling snow. She loves to hear from readers, who can contact her by mail in care of Harlequin Books, and by email at

In California, bakery owner Aurora ¿Rory¿ Constable and Tucker Shultz meet at a party. The duo is attracted to one another immediately and during a dance, he admits to ¿foreplay¿, but flees once the music stopped. Though he wants her Tucker backs off because she smells of marriage and children, relationships he is not ready for. --- Rory donates bakery goods to the ¿Lock & Key charity event that she also is a willing participant along with two close friends, Michaela Corelli (see HARD TO HANDLE by Jamie Denton) and Lauren Massey (see ON THE LOOSE by Shannon Hollis). She and Tucker win a weekend together. While he wants just a two day fling, she knows he is her forever soulmate; now she has to persuade her beloved that he will never find another Rory.--- The third and final ¿Lock and Key¿ torrid contemporary romance is a fine story though in some ways feels too similar to the previous tales that just came out in the last two months. Rory and Tucker are a likable couple and her explanation about Woodstock and her first name hooks the audience from the onset. Fans of the mini- series will appreciate Carrie Alexander¿s fine finish to a fun trilogy.--- Harriet Klausner
