Bayleigh Morrow just wants to hide from the world for a little while, recover from all the knocks she’s been taking lately.  What better place than small-town Texas, where she can reconnect with her brother, meet her new sister-in-law, and just be left alone?

Excerpt:

Jack stared at her, his eyes wide with disbelief and then he laughed.  Even as her eyes narrowed in anger, he laughed.  As she sat up and pulled her fist back, though, he sobered.  “No, none of that,” he cautioned, catching her fist in his hand, pulling her up against him.  “You really think I’m not interested in you, Bayleigh? Does that feel as if I’m ‘not into you’?” he positioned her against him so that she could feel how into her he was.  Every single hard inch of him.
“Oh,” was the only thing she could manage.
“Yeah, ‘oh’ is right,” he shook his head, with a mock glare pushing her back down onto the sleeping bags, and laying down beside her, propping himself up on an elbow and leaning over her.  “I was trying to tease you, Bayleigh.  Build the anticipation.  I guess it back fired on me.”
“You think?” she muttered.  “So, you do want to kiss me, then, right?”
“Yes, Bayleigh.  I want to kiss you.  Among other things.”
“I-I want that, too,” she whispered, seeing the desire flare in his eyes.
He moved closer, leaning in and pressing his lips to hers.  He teased her lips open with the tip of his tongue, playing a game of cat and mouse as he would meet and stroke her tongue with his and then retreat, forcing her to seek him out if she wanted more.  He smiled against her lips as she mimicked his movements.  He felt her hands come up and slide around his neck, as he slid his fingers through her silky hair.
He pressed kisses to her jaw and then down her throat, tracing the neckline of her shirt with his tongue, causing her to angle her head back and arch towards him.  Kissing his way back up to her mouth, he brought one hand between them, pushing her shirt up, laying his hand on her stomach.
Leaning back so he could see her face, he smiled as he took in her flushed features as she opened her eyes.  “Doing okay?” he questioned as he stroked her stomach with his thumb.
“I’d be doing better if you’d keep kissing me,” she tugged on his neck, pulling him back down to her.
With a chuckle his mouth closed over hers again as he slid his hand a little higher, his thumb stroking the underside of her breast.  He’d been right; no bra.
She shifted so that she was lying on her back.  As he moved with her, he positioned himself between her legs, pressing against her and releasing a groan as she rubbed herself against him.  His hand slid up and over her breast, teasing the nipple into a hard peak, pushing her two shirts up and out of his way.
With a muffled curse, he grabbed the hem of the shirts and pulled them over her head, tossing them to the side of the sleeping bags.  Kissing his way down her neck to her breasts, he drew a nipple into his mouth.  Arching her back, she moaned, her hands tugging on his own shirt, pulling it out of his jeans and out of her way.
“God, you taste so sweet,” Jack murmured as he kissed his way between her breasts.  “I want to be inside of you, baby.”

Author Information:


Kelli grew up all over the East Coast but her family finally settled in Cincinnati long enough for her to finish high school and college.  She has always loved to read books and write her own stories.  In high school, she used to pass around the latest chapter of the story she was writing for her friends to read.  There is more than one high school teacher out there that can probably remember telling her to put the book down and pay attention to the lectures.
Graduating from the University of Cincinnati with her BS in Nursing, she left Ohio for Texas and the U.S. Army.  She received a medical discharge for a knee injury, but was able to meet the man she'd one day call her husband first--thanks to some mutual friends who insisted they would perfect together.  And what do you know--they are! 
She continued to read books by the dozens and write her own stories.  And then one day, a friend dared her to enter a contest.  She didn’t win, but the feedback she received from the judges convinced her that maybe people were interested in the stories she wanted to tell.
She still lives in Central Texas, with her husband, two children and 2 dogs.
