ThenCameYouVeterinary intern Emily can’t believe she wound up in the small town of Sunshine, Idaho, instead of the Los Angeles clinic she had always imagined. Now she has to put her plans to move to L.A. on hold for a whole year while she fulfills the obligation of her vet school scholarship.

 

Then Wyatt, her gorgeous one-night stand from a Reno vet conference, introduces himself as her new boss. And Emily is just as drawn to his seductive looks and quiet strength as she was on that very steamy night. She soon learns that Wyatt isn’t just a laid-back doctor, but a delicious alpha male tempting her away from her carefully laid-out plans…

Exclusive Excerpt

She, the woman who had to interview dentists before choosing one, she who couldn’t buy a new pair of shoes or outfit without thinking about it at least overnight, had slept with a perfect stranger.  Except now he wasn’t going to be a stranger at all.

 

Karma was such a bitch.

 

Behind her, the bathroom door opened.  With a surprised squeak, she quickly whirled around.  “I’m in here—“

 

“I know,” Wyatt said.  The room was so small that his body bumped into hers when he closed the door.  The last time this had happened, she’d ended up in his bed.  Naked.

 

“Step back,” she said in a voice that wasn’t nearly strong enough.

 

He didn’t step back.  To be fair to him, he couldn’t.  But he didn’t have to get closer – which is exactly what he did.  So much closer that she could have taken his pulse.  With her mouth.

 

He was wearing glasses and though she’d never given it an ounce of thought before, a guy in glasses was sexy as hell.

 

Or maybe it was just this guy.

 

He dropped his birthing gloves in the trash, and then washed and dried his hands, his gaze holding hers prisoner in the mirror the entire time.  Then he turned to face her and backed her into the wall.  One of his hands settled beside her head, the other by her hip, trapping her in.  “It’s really you.”

 

She gave him a little push, but did the big lug move?  No.  “I’m using the facilities here, Wyatt.”

 

“Good to know.”

 

“That I’m using the facilities?”

 

“That you remember my name.”

Grace Burrowes Teaser Tour List

 

“What are your long-term plans, my lady? I ask both as Lucy’s papa and as the husband of your late cousin.”

 

“My plans?” Gilly’s bread and butter turned to sawdust in her mouth when she saw the considering light in His Grace’s eyes.

 

He’d ambushed her, the wretch, out here in the sunshine and beauty of a perfect summer’s day.

 

Next Mercia would explain, politely, that he needed privacy with his daughter, and an extraneous cousin-in-law on the premises must needs be a temporary imposition.

 

Well, damn him. Damn him and his elegant, scarred hands and his beautiful, soft voice and his lovely eyes and his kindness toward the child. Damn him for all of it.

 

And especially for kissing her. Those gentle, nearly chaste kisses had been so…so… Gilly had lost sleep trying to describe Mercia’s kisses. One word kept careening into her awareness, no matter how stoutly she batted it away. Mercia’s kisses had been cherishing, as if Gilly were the reason he lived, the reason he’d bested demons and nightmares to return to her side.

 

Which was balderdash. He’d meandered home from Carlton House through the park, and she was pathetic to make so much of a small late-night lapse between two tired adults.

 

He regarded her now with an expression so far from cherishing that Gilly’s food sat uneasily in her belly.

 

“We’ve only just arrived at Severn, Your Grace. Must we discuss plans and arrangements now?”

 

“We must.” He picked up one of the sections of orange and held it out to her. “Please.”

 

Please eat, or please reveal her hopes and fears, as manifest in the next year’s residential particulars? His blue eyes held an odd light, and Gilly abruptly wished she had the protection of her black silk shawl, for all the afternoon was pleasant. She took the orange section from him and popped it into her mouth.

 

Across from her, the duke screwed up his thin lipped, elegant mouth in a grimace of impatience.

 

“For the near term, you will stay here, my lady. We are agreed on that for the child’s sake. I’d like you to consider making your home with us permanently, though. You are in mourning, and I certainly intend to live quietly. You know this household, and I have no hostess, no lady to see to the maids and the housekeeper.”

 

He had no one to see to him, as far as Gilly could tell, which apparently mattered to him not at all.

About RAZED:

 

Tattoo artist Keelie Jessup can handle that someone else has claimed the man of her dreams. She’s just not pleased with her remaining options…

Keelie doesn’t believe in the “perfect man.” But the men who are worth the trouble are usually taken—like her business partner Zach Barnes. After a string of bad luck and the lost chance with Zach, Keelie decides that maybe flying solo—and living with suppressed desires—is the key to happiness.

As a photographer, Zane Barnes has an eye for the human form, and his eyes can’t get enough of Keelie’s curves. Unfortunately, Keelie is like most women—always fawning over his little brother, Zach. Zane is about ready to give up, but then a few stolen moments at his brother’s wedding have him thinking maybe there’s a chance there after all. Now he just has to prove that the perfect man does exist…for her.

Former model Kelly Hurley has finally put the ashes of the past behind her. After a passionate but turbulent marriage to rock star Vaughan Hurley that ended in heartbreak and divorce, Kelly rebuilt her life in Portland, where she settled so their two young daughters could be close to their father. Just not so close Kelly couldn’t truly make her own way without interference from the man who shattered her heart. Now Kelly’s finally ready to move on, and she’s planning to marry another man.

But not if Vaughan has anything to say about it.

Vaughan knows he was a fool all those years ago. A young, selfish—and prideful—fool. Even as he buried himself in the fast, decadent rock star lifestyle, he could never drown out the memory of Kelly’s beauty and love. Or the sweet, searing heat whenever they touched. For years, he’s had to deal with the pain of seeing her only because of their daughters, but it was never enough. Now Vaughan must prove that he’s the only man Kelly needs, before he loses her for good. And there’s only one way to do it….
