Her determination to guard her heart goes up in smoke when fire forces her from her home and into Zach’s arms. What’s a girl to do when her new sexy neighbor embarks on a sensuous campaign against her body, heart & soul? Little does Zach know his gift this holiday will be a stubborn too-sexy neighbor in need. When desire and his protective instincts roar to the front, will he finally open his heart to love?
She realized she’d bit off more than she could chew when, instead of doing as she asked, he leaned across the long seat. Slowly. Giving her plenty of time to tell him to get lost. Apparently her self-preservation was at an all-time low. All she could do was sit there, deer in the headlights, and wait to see what he’d do.
I’ve always loved to read and cut my teeth on books such as The Forest of Mystery, Robin Hood, and Nancy Drew. I grew up a devout tomboy, back when Silicon Valley wasn’t even a gleam in San Jose’s eyes. Boy, was it different then! I love to live life to its fullest, from back when I used to ride hell-bent-for-leather on my Appaloosa in gymkhanas to surf-fishing in Hawaii, jumping boulders on the breakwater in Morro Bay to walking barefoot on the beach. Many of my story ideas were found during travels far and wide, from Corpus Christi TX, where my ancestors are buried in the Pioneer Cemetery to Pendleton OR. From Tucson, AZ to Seattle WA to Vancouver BC. I’m always looking for that next story, that next place to bury the body. Or kiss the hot guy. I kick-ass and take names in beautiful Portland, Oregon with my amazingly talented son and daughter-in-law and their most affectionate cat Nudge.
