Blog Posts, Leave Him Loved, The Latest...


We are one week away from Leave Him Loved arriving! Itโ€™s safe to say Iโ€™ve never been more excited to press publish. Thereโ€™s just something really special about Reeve and Audria. Youโ€™ll find out super soon!

In the meantime, I have an excerpt for you today. Enjoy a little taste of this upcoming treat!


I glance at his sneakers. โ€œWhatโ€™s your opinion on cowboy boots?โ€

โ€œEveryone should own a pair.โ€ The statement rolls off his tongue like an indisputable fact.

I tuck a lock of hair behind my ear. โ€œNever have I ever.โ€

โ€œOh, are we playing?โ€ That sinful grin tilts higher.

The heat coiling inside me cranks hotter. โ€œI was just stating a fact.โ€

โ€œNext time weโ€™re at the Salt Lick, itโ€™s on.โ€

โ€œThat game is definitely more entertaining with copious amounts of liquor.โ€ I tip the beer to my lips.

โ€œEspecially with your lewd frame of mind.โ€

โ€œHa, youโ€™re hilarious.โ€

โ€œAnd youโ€™re the one who coined CornHub.โ€

I pick at some lint on the blanket. โ€œYouโ€™ve got me there.โ€

โ€œI appreciate your wild and adventurous spirit.โ€ The gleam in his gaze returns.

A twitch crooks at the corner of my lips. Volleying with an equally sweet comment is a seamless move. Instead, I allow a trickling melody of silence to dance between us.

Reeve peers over at me. โ€œAny interest in going to a football game?โ€

I knit my brows. Attending a sporting event had occurred to me as an option. I didnโ€™t know where to begin with possibilities, though. โ€œIowa doesnโ€™t have a pro team.โ€

โ€œDamn, youโ€™re cute.โ€ He chuckles and lightly nudges me in the ribs. โ€œI meant high school.โ€

And now I want to hide behind a tree. โ€œAh, that makes more sense.โ€

โ€œCertainly does. So, wanna go?โ€

โ€œYeah, absolutely. Iโ€™m a fan of the game. Did you ever play?โ€

โ€œOffensive line. I was a tight end,โ€ he explains.

โ€œNo past tense about that,โ€ I whisper.

โ€œIf that does something for you, I still have my jersey.โ€

โ€œHow about the stretchy pants?โ€

โ€œBall huggers,โ€ Reeve corrects.

โ€œYeah,โ€ I purr.

It might be my imagination, but he seems to bend closer. The blue in his eyes swirls with tiny specks of green. The usually cool combination sparks with fire. His hand barely brushes mine, but an unmistakable tingle zaps up my arm. Rather than retreating, he traces the center of my palm with his finger. This type of touchโ€”whether by accident or very much on purpose is irrelevantโ€”steps our harmless flirting up several notches. I suck in a sharp breath, and he notices.

Reeve shifts a safe distance away, taking his warmth with him. The absence of his touch is an immediate loss. His gaze burns into me, vivid depths swirling with undeniable want that Iโ€™m positive reflects in my own eyes. He leans in, ghosting the tip of his nose across my cheek. I tremble and tilt into him.

โ€œYouโ€™re so beautiful,โ€ he whispers.

I lick my bottom lip, preparing to eliminate this invisible barrier separating us once and for all.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?? One week to go!

Leave Him Loved releases on February 25th and I just revealed the cover. Isnโ€™t he gorgeous? Reeve Colton is so swoony!

Cover designer โžœ Book Cover Kingdom

Photographer โžœ Rafa G. Catala

Model โžœ Alfredo

Iโ€™m a city girlโ€”born and raised. A towering high-rise that overlooks the hustle and bustle is where my future should lead.
Living in farm country? That possibility never had a place on my bucket list. Until now.

Bumping into Reeve Coltonโ€”local bachelor and shameless flirtโ€”on my introductory stroll down Main Street is a pleasant surprise. The small-town charm of Bampton Valley begins sinking in that afternoon. Maybe this temporary relocation is a blessing in disguise.

What starts as a bit of fun becomes complicated in a hurry. It turns out Reeve and I have more in common than our mutual appreciation of good barbecue.

But that wonโ€™t change the inevitable.
When my contract is done, Iโ€™ll be leaving himโ€”and Bampton Valleyโ€”behind.
