For my portion of today's hop, I'm going to share a little steamy bit of romance from Tequila Sunset. Gabriel and Esmeralda's story takes place in Cabos so I thought it fitting as a farewell to the hot nights of summer. ;)

After you enjoy the excerpt, don't forget to enter the giveaways!

Ema eased out of Gabriel’s arms to face him. That same seductive tone she was powerless to resist washed over her like rich, dark chocolate, leaving her heart thundering. Hot liquid pooled in the crotch of her panties. “Like this?” She slid the buttons of her top out of their hold again and slipped the material first off one shoulder then the next before losing the material altogether.

She cupped her breasts, letting her nipples slip between her fingers. A groan rattled deep within Gabe’s throat, giving her the courage to continue.

“Let me see them.” He moved into her space to peel her hands away. If he kept looking at her with such fervor, she’d be lost.

“God, I’ve missed you. I’ve dreamed about having you again. Just like this.”

“You’ve dreamed of me, Gabriel?” His gaze simmered with a deeper passion than she’d seen before. From his kneeling position looking up at her, Ema saw the full force of the fire set deep in his eyes. The blaze burned hotter with each encounter, pulling her closer to the warmth he offered.

“You know I have, precious. The proof is right here.” He guided her hand to stroke the ridge of his cock through his pants. Impressive in every way.

With his forefingers and thumb, Gabe pinched both her nipples, forcing a moan from her. “I’m going to suck those delicate berries into my mouth and make you come for me. First, I want to see the rest of you.”

He skimmed his fingers along her sensitive sides then worked his way toward the front clasp of her skirt. Shudders of anticipation raked through her. With the slightest touch, he had her wanting more than she could ever have. A family. A man to love her body and soul. She had to stop, pull back on her runaway emotions constantly edging her closer to him.

In a flick, he released the final barrier. “Baby, I need you. We’re both in danger of me combusting right now if I don’t get you wrapped around my length soon.”

Dios, he was going to be the death of her. She shouldn’t be here, but he looked at her with such intensity, as if she was his soul reason for breathing, and there was no way she could resist his allure much longer.
What they had went much deeper than just lust and want. For both of them. And it scared her to the core.

Body Language - Book Cover BOOK SYNOPSIS
There are no words for desire this hot…but he’ll sure try to find them. The Boot Knockers Ranch, Book 2
If there’s one thing that Damian Vince can do well, it’s read women. With his trademark wink and sexy drawl, he’s the most wanted cowboy on the Boot Knockers Ranch, a spa where sexually challenged women come to get charmed out of their uptight panties.
He’s also the ranch’s bad boy—he hates to admit he’s had his mug-shot taken more than once. But now he’s on the right path, ranching and fulfilling women’s desires.
Prim grade-school teacher Ruthie Johansson prays Damian will be able to fix her strict upbringing that’s left her leery of men and intercourse, though her body aches for both. Once she sets eyes on the muscular, auburn-haired Damian, she throbs only for him.
As they get skin to skin, her instinct touches something Damian’s been struggling to hide from his fellow Boot Knockers. A secret he’s spent a lifetime keeping buried beneath bar brawls and a bad attitude. But with Ruthie’s gentle coaxing, he just might give overcoming it another try—as long as they do their homework in bed.
Warning: Contains a bad boy with a vulnerable underside, a squeaky clean woman who wants to get dirty, and a secret shame only love and compassion can heal. Prepare to drool while he parses her sentences…one sexy verb at a time.

BOOK 1 – Pushin’ Buttons

Ruthie clasped her hands and fought to keep from wringing them. The backstage area was alive with chatter. Excited giggles echoed around her as she waited for the cowboys.
She looked at the other women. They were as diverse as the cowboys on the brochure. Women with every shade of hair and body type huddled together, some talking quietly about what to expect.
With a knot of nausea in her throat, Ruthie didn’t feel like speaking. Besides, when she stepped onto the stage, she would be alone. No one could save her from what she’d chosen to do.
Isabel, the stage manager, buzzed between girls, dashing notes on her clipboard. “You’re up third, Ruthie.”
Nodding, she battled the urge to bolt for the door. Boarding the jet to Texas had given her the illusion she was going on a nice vacation. But once she’d arrived at the ranch and been taken into a private screening room to choose from a selection of cowboys, her real purpose hit hard.
She’d come to find the most sexual pleasure she’d ever known, which would be easy considering she hadn’t found it with her former lovers.
Images of the five cowboys she’d selected revolved through her mind. They were in the audience right now. In a few minutes she’d step onto the stage and they’d fight over who would win her.
She dragged in a wavering gasp just as Isabel announced the first contestant was to take the stage.
Holding her breath with the rest of the women, Ruthie watched from the sidelines as a tall girl with a pretty face and dishwater-blonde hair stood before the cowboys.
Ruthie’s mind clouded, and she stared at her simple, flat leather sandals. How had she gotten here? From the third-grade classroom to a sex club. Her face burned.
By the time she lifted her gaze again, the first woman was coming offstage.
With a cowboy.
Ruthie felt her jaw drop as she came face-to-face with the dashing, muscled man in worn denim, boots and hat. His shirt was blue plaid, sleeves rolled to his elbows, displaying a tattoo of a rodeo belt buckle on his forearm.
“Take good care of her, Elliot,” Isabel said with a grin.
He tipped his hat at Isabel and hooked the woman’s arm more securely over his. He led her through the throng of women and out the side door.
Oh my God. Oh my God.
Ruthie gasped for breath when contestant number two took the stage. She wore ill-fitting clothes that disguised her body. When she took her place in the spotlight, she smiled, and her whole appearance transformed.
“I wish we could hear what they’re saying,” someone beside Ruthie whispered.
Me too. What should she expect? More Q&A? How would she ever keep her knees from knocking when faced with all that testosterone?
“Get ready, Ruthie. It’s almost your turn.”
The knot in her belly pulled tight, and she was pretty sure she knew what expression she wore. In the classroom, it was one she’d come to recognize early—right before the cleanup.
Contestant number two came off stage, grinning like Miss America and guided by a tanned hunk with his hand on the small of her back.
Ruthie shivered, more aware of herself than ever before. Within minutes she’d be that girl, and she’d have some cowboy’s hand on her.
All OVER me with any luck.
“Ruthie, you’re on!”
Sucking in a deep breath, she stepped onto the stage. Her sandals were almost noiseless on the polished floor. As soon as she stepped into the spotlight, she broke out in a sweat. Her watermelon-colored cotton sundress clung to her damp skin, and she squeezed her fingers together until her knuckles popped.
Her heart throbbed heavily in her ears. Through the glare of lights, she could just make out the line of cowboys. They sat in plush leather chairs with red buttons before them.
Oh my God, I’ve landed on a game show. And I’m the prize.

Available Today!

*Warning - R-x-rated 938 words
Miranda pulled in a long, slow breath. She couldn’t figure out how much of her hammering heart was nerves and how much was relief—it was all a jumbled mess inside her head. No, that wasn’t entirely true. Because she knew in mind and body the need she felt. For release. For catharsis. For him. She simply had no idea how she was going to feel about it once it was over.  But it was time to stop running. She’d been doing just that for too damn long. And now she was being presented with the perfect situation to help her overcome her past and move forward: a stunning stranger who had been vetted by Vardalos. Whoever her mysterious employer was, whatever he was, everything that happened on Eden went the way it was supposed to. It was well known that the resort had never had a single complaint. She could trust this—Vardalos, the island, Roan—as much as she could trust anything.
And Jesus, Roan… He was so intense and gorgeous and commanding, yet she felt pain deep within him at the same time—the pain that gave them a common ground beyond the kink. It made her feel as if he truly could understand her and that was a sort of safety net in itself.
Pulled out of her musing, she looked up and found his glittering green gaze locked on hers, making her tremble. God, she was attracted to this man.
He put a hand out, lifted his chin a fraction of an inch when she didn’t respond and she knew to put her hand in his.
“We begin now. For the last time, tell me you want this. That you feel ready. Safe.”
“Yes. All of it.”
Certainty flooded her, along with the heated rush of blood through her limbs, her breasts, her sex. She squeezed her thighs together.
This man was going to touch her. To kiss her. To play her.
Oh yes.
“Then come with me now,” he said, rising to his feet.
Her mind was emptying out, the world fading away as he led her across the room. He stopped in front of an enormous bondage frame made of sleekly black-painted metal.
“Roan. I feel…at a loss. It’s been so long. Five years. Suddenly it feels like a very long time. Like a century.”
He smoothed a hand over the back of her neck and her entire body wanted to sway, to bow into his palm.
“Don’t worry. You don’t have to do anything. You don’t have to decide anything. I will do everything in my power to intuit what you need, to ask you to tell me if I have any doubt. But I usually know. I’m not being cocky. I’m being truthful. Because my objective here is to meet my need by meeting yours. There’s a sort of simple yet exquisite synchronicity in my handling it all. That’s the beauty here. Well, aside from you.” He leaned in and brushed his lips over her hair, murmured, “Have I told you how beautiful you are, Miranda? If not, it was a terrible oversight on my part. Because I think you are exquisite, and it makes me want to do everything for you. And to you. You don’t need to say anything, to think of a response. You don’t need to think of anything. Simply do as I say and focus on what you feel. Can you do that for me, beautiful girl?”
She nodded, swallowing hard past the lump of emotion and desire clogging her throat. Trying to swallow down the flashing images of Daryn. Being with him at the club in Paris that was his favorite.  Everything a little too damn French for her tastes, but she’d been so eager to please him it hadn’t mattered. And now this man was saying this was for her. “Yes, Roan.”
This was really happening. Now. Her legs began to shake again.
“Excellent. I want you to stand very still for me. I’m going to undress you.”
There wasn’t even a moment’s pause before he moved behind her and quickly lowered the zipper on her dress. He smoothed the straps from her shoulders, letting the material slide down her body. And every moment seemed to move in slow motion, with her aware of every single small sound and sensation—the slip and fall of the fabric, the air playing over her skin, the rhythm of her own breathing. Of his. And God, the heat of his hands on her body. His grip was firm on her calves as he helped her step out of the dress, leaving her in nothing but her high black heels, her black lace bra and bikini panties.
He slipped his fingertips over her shoulders, then his hand flattened on her stomach and desire trembled through her, pooling inside her, making her panties wet. When was the last time a man had touched her like this?
She tensed when he slid down her bra strap, some small part of her still fighting what she knew she needed. Wanted.
His mouth was right next to her ear, his big body closing in behind her, making her feel oddly trapped and ridiculously turned on all at the same time. “Roan…”
“It’s okay, my beauty,” he told her, his English accent stronger than ever. “I expected a little panic from you. A little fight, which I rather like. And I am willing to go through that with you.” He came around to stand in front of her, tipping her chin until her gaze met his. “To a point.”
