Book Blurb:

Jana Reed

He wasn’t trustworthy.

My heart was a wreck, and it was his fault.

Apache helicopter pilot.

Bossy and annoying.

Fun. Fit. Intelligent. Sexy.

Smoldering attraction.

The truth… I’m in love with a man I cannot trust, but I’ve been tricked into a weekend alone with him when I wanted to forget him. Tyler Grant

She branded me with a kiss.

I’m determined to claim her.

I’m used to respect, but Jana evaded me.

She doesn’t know the truth.

This was my only shot to make it right.

Will she give me a chance?

Out of desperation, I planned something Jana never expected, but she turned the tables on me once again. A Lipstick Valentine is the third book in The Lipstick Series. Each book features a unique couple with a HEA ending.

Excerpt (18+):

I caught her at the sink and trapped her against the countertop. My hands slid over her petite curves as I nibbled her earlobe and nuzzled her throat. She turned in my arms, but I didn’t move, braced both hands against the counter, and leaned over her. “Tell me what you want, Jana,” I whispered against her lips.

“I want to finish what we started that day when everything went wrong.”

“Remove your clothes.” I arched one eyebrow, daring her to argue, teasing her, hoping she would.

Her chin lifted, and her tongue flicked her bottom lip, but her shirt sailed across the kitchen. I glanced at her hands as she shimmied out of her pants and kicked them to where her shirt lay.

“Panties and bra too, Jana.”

My eyes narrowed when she stood before me naked with no shame. I adored her confidence. It was one of the things I was initially drawn to. The scent of ripe, sexy woman filled my nose, but I didn’t touch her. Long eyelashes surrounded her blue eyes, and her tongue wetted her bottom lip. Locks of red hair lay over her shoulders, a stark contrast on her pale skin.

Her breath caressed my skin, and the heat from her body warmed mine with the sounds of the night beyond the screen door. I wanted to touch her, but there was something special about being here with her like this, something intimate that I didn’t want to break.

Soft, feminine hands slid beneath my t-shirt and skimmed my stomach, teasing touches that left a trail of fire wherever they moved.

“Take your shirt off, Tyler. Please.”

Her voice was as serene and soft as her hands on my skin, so I did as she asked.. Soft touches feathered the width of my shoulders and along my arms.

It was a sensual torture, but one I never wanted to end. The exploration and learning of my body were part of the intimacy I craved. I wanted her to feel comfortable touching me at anytime and anywhere.
