BONUS SCENE: Forget You Not

As a THANK YOU for Forget You Not reaching 50 reviews, I wrote a little something extra for Lark and Rowen. I had this scene bouncing in my mind but it didn’t end up in the book. I am so grateful for everything you all have done for me over the last week. THANK YOU!


Rowen comes up behind me on the rocky embankment and cinches his strong arms around my waist. He rests his chin gently on my shoulder before whispering, “Wanna go swimming?”

My eyes scan the slowly flowing river as I imagine the cool water lapping against my heated skin. His suggestion sounds like seductive perfection–our wet bodies gliding together against the rippling stream–but there’s one problem.

A disappointed sigh eases through my purses lips. “I didn’t pack a swimsuit.”

Rowen’s scruff scrapes along my nape as he shakes his head. “That’s a real bummer, Vix.” His words don’t reflect his humorous tone.

“Urgh, yeah.” I roll my eyes. “I didn’t think there’d be a need for any clothes this weekend.” My grumble is quiet as I start pulling away from him, suddenly sullen since the potential for a splash party has been doused.

His chest shakes with a light chuckle. “What was that, Sweetheart?” Rowen tightens his hold and draws me back in, effectively halting my escape. His talented fingers dig deeper into my hips and a delicious tingle zaps through me.

My head rolls along Rowen’s muscled pec as he keeps tempting me with slight strokes. I manage to find my voice through the lust threatening to takeover. “I don’t have my bikini because someone refused to tell me where he was taking me.” I clear my dry throat. “Now we can’t have any fun in the water.” My bottom lip pouts out as I glance up at him through my lashes.

Rowen hums while massaging my sides in a delectable tease. “Maybe I didn’t tell you on purpose.” He purrs against my temple.

“Hmmm,” is all I manage to get out.

His palms start sliding up my stomach, lifting my shirt with the movement. “Skinny dipping is a more appealing option, don’t you think?”

My arms rise automatically as the fabric bunches above my bra. “Absolutely, Casper.” The breathy rasp feels like smoke leaving my lungs.

After my top slips off, Rowen leans down to the juncture between my neck and shoulder. He gently nips my sensitive skin before sucking the sting away. “Have you ever been naked in a river, Sweetheart?” He asks while turning me around to face him.

I shake my head and get consumed by the blue flames blazing from his stare. Rowen is engulfing me with tantalizing fire and scorching my flesh with his burning need. The need to rip our clothes off overpowers me and I eagerly reach for the hem of his shirt.

He tugs me closer by my belt loop. “Me either, Vix.” Rowen’s nose brushes down my cheek. “Another first for us,” is murmured along my flushed face.

Before I can reply, Rowen’s lips crash down on mine and our desires melts into one.

Lark shoots me a glare before asking, “What are you doing here?”

The venom in her voice is probably meant to scare me away but all I hear is come closer. I’m totally mesmerized.

“Hey, Sweetheart. I said you’d be seeing me soon. Figured I’d stop by and say hello in person.” I make sure to keep my tone calm but my skin inches with heat at the fire burning from her gaze.

“And I told you to leave me alone unless you’re ready to give me what I want.” She shifts her stare down to my groin while raising an expectant brow. “Is that what you’ve brought me?” She lifts her scorching eyes back to my face and seductively bites into her bottom lip.

Her sass is tantalizing but it’s the beauty underneath I’m truly after. “Sorry to disappoint you but that’s not why I’m here, Vix. I want to discuss some stuff, relating to us.”

“Vix? As in the vapor rub?”

An amused chuckle bounces up my throat. “Nah, short for Vixen.”

She seems to mull it over with a slight tilt of her head. “I suppose that’s fitting, though you don’t need to be handing out nicknames. Tell me, what could we possibly have to talk about?”

“No idle chit-chat first? I’m hoping we can get to know each other. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about you since the other night and this sexy librarian look you’re rocking is hot as hell, but it’s more than that. Are you willing to hear me out? Maybe make an exception for me?”

A frustrated sigh answers my question. “I don’t have the patience for this, Rowen. I’m very busy here and you’re wasting my time.”

I lean against the door, trying to show I’m not ready to leave quite yet. “Answer me this. Where did you work when you were younger? Let’s say seven years ago?”

Lark glances away before shuffling some papers into piles. Her fidgeting makes me smile because now I’m certain she remembers just fine. A barely-there blush blooms on her cheeks while she continues avoiding my question. I wait her out and soon enough she graces me with a response.

“I don’t see how that’s any of your business.” Her deflection causes me to edge forward a bit, as though we need to be closer. She speaks to the depths of my soul, no matter if she gives me sass or softness.

“I’m trying here, Vix. Want to help me out? Did you work at Brack’s Box during the summer of 2010? Maybe a guy stopped in on a random July afternoon and stumbled over his words in your stunning presence. Do you remember that?”

Lark is still avoiding eye contact but I hear her whispered yes as if she shouted it across the room.teaser 6

BLURB

Destiny is bogus and fate is fake.

Everything happens for a reason?

Whatever.

I gave up on my fairy tale years ago.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not settling for less.

All my energy gets poured into a job I love rather than dead end relationships.

Men aren’t even a blip on my radar these days.

Who needs them?

Except to scratch the occasional itch, I’m not interested in anything they have to offer.

If so-called Cupid ever comes knocking on my door, I’ll be waiting with my flying pig because happily ever after doesn’t exist.

I’ve become a jaded disbeliever and my main reason just sauntered into the bar.

Rowen Sworr is the only arrow that pierced my heart, and dammit, he stuck.

His random reappearance is a complicated twist from that meddling matchmaker I didn’t see coming…

Forget You Not is the second standalone in the interconnected Reclusive Novel Series.

EXCERPT:

The memory of that one seemingly special afternoon crosses my mind occasionally but it’s become almost second nature to immediately shove those thoughts away. The ink on my wrist suddenly itches, like the needle is piercing into me all over again. I suppose there will always be a reminder of my foolish heart—at least until I cover it up permanently.

 

I’ve convinced myself over the years that Rowen wasn’t the one. But after meeting him, I became even more determined to find the right guy for me. Looking back on it now, there are a lot of similarities between his vanishing act and when my father abandoned me. Perhaps that’s why I took Rowen’s disappearance so hard back then. More recently, I’ve let the idea of him, and all that other fluffy love shit, lose potency. I’d been determined to move on with my life and forget about the ridiculous pipe dream I once held onto so tightly. The significance of what Rowen represented faded further with each passing season.

 

I’d almost tricked myself into believing he’d been a figment of my imagination, but seeing Rowen again—right in front of my effing face—I know he’s freaking real. My erratic heartbeat and other uncontrollable physical reactions are evidence enough. The exponential spike in my pulse is like a high-voltage shock from the fences meant to keep horses corralled.

 

So yeah, there’s really no denying it. Even after all this time, and the differences in his appearance, I recognize Rowen immediately.
