About the Book

New York Times bestselling author Joanna Wylde returns to the world of the Reapers Motorcycle Club…

Looking back, none of this would’ve happened if I hadn’t dropped my phone in the toilet. I mean, I could’ve walked away from him if I’d had it with me.

Or maybe not.

Maybe it was all over the first time he saw me, and he would’ve found another way. Probably—if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that Shade always gets what he wants, and apparently he wanted me.

Right from the first.

Excerpt

“Did you get my text?” Sara asked, pushing through the office door. I’d just finished tying my apron around my waist, and was leaning toward the cracked mirror on the wall for one last makeup check before punching in.

“No,” I replied, frowning. “Dropped my cell in the toilet this morning. I called the phone people. They said I didn’t have any insurance, so I’m fucked. I put it on Future Me’s list of things to worry about.”

Sadly, Future Me’s list got longer every day. She was supposed to pay our credit card bill, figure out whether we should break up with our boyfriend, and find a better place to sleep than my sister’s couch. She also needed to lose ten pounds and magically fix the rusted-out Kia Sedona currently broken down in my sister’s yard.

Present Me would’ve felt guilty about dumping all this on the poor thing, but I only had three minutes left to punch in and start slinging drinks for drunken bikers, so it would just have to wait.

Yup. I’m organized like that.

Studying my reflection, I ran an eye down the length of my body. Tight tank with a hint of bra showing? Check. (Nothing like some boob action to bring in the tips. Not only that, Rebel had said he’d be here tonight, and he always liked seeing the girls.)

Lipstick was bright and shiny, no smudges on the teeth. More eye makeup than I’d usually wear, but ever since I’d started hanging out with Rebel’s biker friends, I’d kicked it up a notch. Made me look wild and sexy. Not gonna lie—I liked this new me. I liked her a lot. I guess if there was one good thing about my sister’s life falling apart—and me moving to Violetta to help with the kids—it was that it’d forced me to change my life, too.

Author: Kristen Proby

Series: Fusion #3

Release Date: March 7th 2017.

 

About the Book

New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby continues to delight the senses with the latest novel in her delectable Fusion series.

As the take-charge wine bar manager of Seduction, Portland’s hottest new restaurant, Katrina Meyers is the definition of no-nonsense, and she isn’t afraid of anything. Well, almost anything: she hates to fly. When she’s forced to travel on a death trap with wings, the turbulence from hell has her reaching for any safe haven—including the incredibly handsome guy sitting next to her.

Ryan “Mac” MacKenzie hasn’t been able to get his sexy seatmate out of his head. The way she clung to him stirred something inside him he didn’t think existed: tenderness. As the owner of a successful wine touring company, Mac thinks he’s got a handle on what life can throw at him and he’s not prepared for any surprises, especially in the feelings department. And when he brings a tour into Seduction, he sees the petite spitfire he just can’t forget.

Mac is determined to discover what else they have in common besides fine wine and the inability to keep their hands off each other. But what will it take for two stubborn people to realize that what they have is so much more than a hot chemistry between the sheets and to admit to falling in love…?

Excerpt

“Have you flown before, Kat?”

              “No.” I swallow hard and tighten my hands into fists.

              “Okay, take a deep breath,” he says. He’s not touching me, which is good because I’d have to break his nose, and this is already stressful enough. But his voice is soothing. “Good. Take another one. Miss, can we get a bottle of water, please?”

              I just keep breathing. The flight attendant returns with a little baby bottle of water, which Mac uncaps and holds out for me.

              “Take a drink of this. Just a small sip.” I comply, the cold water feeling good on my throat. I feel ridiculous. This flight is full of people who are not having panic attacks.

              “I’m sorry,” I whisper. “This is my biggest fear.”

              “I can tell,” he says gently, and I raise my gaze to meet his. He’s a handsome guy, his short hair styled nicely, his jaw firm, eyes direct. He’s tall, with long arms and legs and a lean body. “How are you feeling?

              “Better,” I reply, surprised to find it true. “The water helped. Thank you.”

              “No problem. Are you going to Napa Valley on vacation?”

              “Work,” I reply, shaking my head. “I’m attending a conference.”

              “So you’re a wine enthusiast then?”

              “You could say that,” I reply with a smile. “I own a wine bar in Portland.”

              His eyes narrow for just a moment. “Really? Which one?”

              “The one inside Seduction.”
“I’ve heard great things about that place.”

              I smile widely now, intensely proud of the restaurant that my four friends and I have built from the ground up. Seduction is our baby, our pride and joy.

              “That’s nice to hear,” I reply. “You’ve never been?”

              “Not yet, but I’ll make a point to go the next time I’m in the area.”

              So he doesn’t live in Portland.

              Bummer. Mac is one guy I wouldn’t mind running into again.

Excerpt

As he slowly closed the door behind him and moved his eyes to look through the room, taking it in, she watched them get wide.

                They dropped to her and his amusement was clear. Not only radiating from his gaze but twitching his lips.

                Another unusual—and unacceptable—reaction.

                He thought this was funny.

                She hoped like fuck she had the opportunity to prove him wrong.

                She crossed her arms on her chest and slightly put out a foot, like she was about to start tapping her toe. In the wrap dress she wore, she knew this opened the overlap, not exposing anything, but the promise for him was impossible to resist.

                His attention dropped to her legs.

                “In the playrooms,” she began with a snap, and his gaze cut to hers, “I want eye contact. Unless otherwise instructed, you should not only feel free to look me directly in the eyes, if I’m in your line of sight or I’m not giving you something that your body’s natural reaction would make it difficult to meet my gaze, I require it.”

                She stood there staring as he did nothing but dip his chin in acknowledgment.

                Cheeky.

                Exceptionally cheeky.

                Fabulous.

                “Unless I’ve asked for their silence or for them to ask for leave to speak, I also require my toys to respond when they’re spoken to. Even if it’s only a ‘yes, Mistress,’ or ‘no, Mistress.’”

                His stance relaxed, like he was settling in at the beginning of a show he found vaguely intriguing, and his deep rumble of a voice bounced like boulders through the room. “Yes, Mistress.”

                Christ, even his voice declared his challenge.

                “Excellent,” she allowed. “Your name?”

                “Olivier,” he answered.

                French.

                Also unusual, at least in this country. And interesting.

                She liked it a great deal.

                She studied him.

                He let her, holding her eyes.

                “I’m Mistress Amélie,” she eventually informed him.

                “I know. You got a lotta fans out there…Mistress.”

                The hesitation over him saying “Mistress” gave less of the impression he was testing her and more of the strange impression the word was unpracticed when, with any experienced sub, it would slip right off their tongue.

                She made no comment to that.

                “There are things we should go over,” she remarked.

                “Right,” he stated, his big body adjusting again, now like he was settling in further, intent on giving her the same attention he would a flight attendant who gave the safety address.

                That being no more than a courtesy.

                She fought the shiver his actions created but allowed the irritation.

                “Your safe word is kitten,” she stated.

                “Yes, Mistress.”

                “You’re open to any kind of play,” she went on.

                “Yes, Mistress.”

                “It’s important and now’s the time to share should there be anything you wish me to shy away from, Olivier. Especially as this is the first time I’ve played with you.”

                Something in his eyes flashed. Blue eyes that were the color of nothing and everything. Not sky. Not sea. Not midnight. A pure blue that only existed in the unchartable depths of a rainbow.

                She felt that flash snake up between her thighs, taking residence in her womb.

                He wanted this conversation done so she would play with him. He wanted the preliminaries over so they’d get to the good stuff.

                He wanted her.

                She stared into those blue eyes and for a moment felt mesmerized.

                For God’s sake, Leigh, she berated herself in an effort to pull it together. Rainbow?

                “Olivier,” she prompted.

                “I’m open to anything,” he confirmed.

About the Author

Kristin Ashley - headshot

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
