“Damn it, Christina.” He pivoted and stalked across the space between them, backed her against the counter behind her, and set his hands on either side of her. His eyes narrowed, his gaze hot and confrontational. “Go. Home.”

More than a little surprised by his sudden nearness, she swallowed hard, her heart hammering a mile a minute. He was so close, his every breath whispered over her lips, warm, with a slight hint of mint that made her yearn to discover the flavor on his tongue. She ignored the intense desire to close the remaining inches between them and held her ground. This wasn’t about her desire. He needed her, whether he wanted to admit it or not.

She angled her chin higher. “Or what? I’m not afraid of you. You can’t boss me around.”

If he wanted a fight, though, she’d give him one, because she knew him enough to know he would attempt to intimidate her. No doubt in order to get her to leave him alone to his misery. If a subject had anything to do with emotion, he avoided it as if it were a highly contagious disease. She’d never let the tactic work before, and she wouldn’t now.

This time, though, he didn’t do what she expected him to. Rather, his right hand slid into her hair, and before she could blink, he pulled her mouth to his. He didn’t give her a chance to back away, to approve or deny his assault. His kiss wasn’t fleeting, either, or soft and seductive, the way she’d always envisioned. His lips plied hers, tugging and demanding. His tongue stroked the seam of her mouth, a hot slide that had her gasping and opening for him. He took full advantage and swept in, his tongue restless in her mouth.

She whimpered. What she needed to do was push him away. He wasn’t thinking clearly. He was lost in grief. Her body, however, didn’t seem to be listening. His mouth was warm and luscious, and her arms wound themselves around his neck. How many times over the years had she imagined this moment? How many times had she stroked herself to orgasm fantasizing about his hands and his mouth on her body? Yet the reality far exceeded the fantasy, and God help her, she didn’t have the strength to deny him.

Unfortunately, the fantasy didn’t last long. As abruptly as he’d grabbed her, he released her. His breaths came harsh and shallow, his chest heaving in time with the fierce pounding of her heart.

“That’s what. It’s been a shitty day, Tina, and I’m feeling very ornery and very needy.” As if to prove his point, he set his hands on the counter on either side of her and leaned into her, rocking his hips against hers.

The full press of his lean body against her had any thought of protest flitting away like wisps on a breeze. Sebastian was aroused, and his erection pressed into the softness of her stomach. He didn’t feel like a small boy, either. She itched to reach down and stroke the length of his cock. She longed to put an end to the wondering and finally discover exactly how big he really was, yearned to know the soft, intimate heat of his skin.

The intensity of his stare held her trapped. Sapphires. He had eyes the colors of deep, brilliant sapphires. They were usually intense and focused. Right then, they were in full seduction mode. Never in a million years would she have thought to find herself on the receiving end of that captivating stare. She’d never been the kind of girl who went all tongue-tied over a man, who giggled and sighed. She was a woman in a male-dominated industry; she could hold her own with most men. But right then? God help her, she wanted to do exactly that: giggle like a giddy schoolgirl and beg him to fuck her senseless.

Husband Heel


With her 3rd book in The Husband Series, Louise Cusack brings us my favorite yet with Louella’s story!  In the previous books, Louella has always been the uptight, haughty queen of the group who we think can do no wrong from her uppity attitude, but in her story, we learn some of what has made her the way she is in life, and we also see a softer, gentler side of her at times.  It’s a pleasure getting to know her and seeing who she becomes with Nick at her side!

Nicholas Markes is Louella’s bodyguard that she employed after Marcus received some death threats earlier in the year.  With him by her side, she attempts to figure out what Marcus has gotten himself into when shady things start to happen.

Nick is a tough guy, but turns gentle when he’s around Louella.  There’s a draw between them that they don’t seem to be able to ignore.  Will they be able to forgive each other for the secrets that they keep and find a happily ever after when all is said and done?

** Blog Tour / Book Review ** SHOTGUN JUSTICE by Angi Morgan


Shotgun Justice
by Angi Morgan
Series: Texas Rangers: Elite Force, #2
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: February 23, 2016




As a Texas Ranger, it was Jesse Ryder’s duty to protect her. As a man, it was all he could do to avoid the temptation of Avery Travis. The Snake Eyes Killer was on Avery’s trail, but the independent deputy didn’t want Jesse’s help. And he couldn’t blame her; he had walked away from her the night she’d offered him everything.

Avery knew Jesse would always think of her as his best friend’s little sister. However, she was fully capable of taking care of herself…and knowing what and who she wanted. Their lives might be in jeopardy, but the true tragedy would be to never have one more chance with the sexy Ranger.






4 1/2 STARS!
Book 2 in Angi Morgan’s Texas Rangers: Elite Troop series picks up with Garrison Travis’s (from Book 1) twin sister being targeted by The Snake Eyes Killer.  I enjoyed this book even more than the first, and fell in love with Avery and Jesse as a battling friends to lovers duo!  Can’t wait to see what else the gang gets up to in the continuation of the series!

Texas Ranger Jesse Ryder hears that Avery Travis is in trouble, and is on her door step immediately.  They grew up together and he was her brother’s best friend, but they also had a little history of their own a few months ago that ended when Jesse walked out on her.  She’s not happy to see him, and doesn’t much want his help!

They find themselves being stalked by this serial killer, and have to dodge his set ups to try to figure out who he is before he gets to them first!  Will they survive this mad man’s clutches?

There, she’d search through the inside cover corners for checkmarks, aunt’s initials, and her favorite phrase: Okay for Angi. That’s right, her aunts and grandmother censored which stories she could borrow. Reading gave her a love for the Harlequin name and story. She still has a lot of her grandmother’s books. Angi keeps reading and thinking romance, falling in love with the “Happily Ever After” for each hero and heroine.

An 11th generation Texan, Angi utilizes her strong heritage to create passionate characters willing to risk everything. She writes Intrigues where honor and danger collide with love. When the house is quiet, she plots ways to engage her readers with complex story lines, throwing her hero and heroine into situations they’ll never overcome…until they find the one person they can love.

Angi had several jobs before taking the opportunity to stay home with her children and develop the writing she always wanted. Volunteer work led to a houseful of visiting kids and a joyful but on-the-go lifestyle. With their three children out of the house, Angi concentrated on her work, finding her dream agent and editor. She and her husband live in North Texas with only the four-legged ‘kids’ to interrupt her writing. Tex, Roxie & Little Dude keep Angi and her characters company, reminding her to occasionally take time off to play.
