Blurb:

Lexi Andrews keeps her erotic writing a secret but she’ll gladly risk exposure for the chance to work with “Killer” spy creator Jake Stone. While Jake is hesitant to work with anyone, he’ll meet Lexi to appease his female fans. They hatch a plan to rehearse the love scenes and give Jake’s novel realism.

But what starts out as an experiment soon takes on a life of its own. Jake’s deadline doesn’t seem as pressing as Lexi’s lovely body. Can Jake and Lexi keep their hands off each other long enough to “Sex up the Spy”?

sexingupthespyExcerpt:

KNOCK! KNOCK! KNOCK!

DING-DONG! DING-DONG!

“Lexi, are you in there!”

A muffled voice came through her dreams. Lexi’s head screamed and she was damn uncomfortable, “Go away,” Who was at the door this late? Sounded like Jake, “Jake, come back tomorrow!” She shouted back. Lexi rolled over. The sun blinded her.

Oh, crap! Sunlight!

She shot up like a springboard.

“I’ll be right there!” She fell to the floor with a loud thud trying to run to the door.

While she slept, Lexi’s usual thrashing tangled her up in the afghan.

“Are you okay?” Jake called from the other side.

“Fine.” She started to pull the afghan off her feet, but the knots were stuck through

her fishnets. Great, just great. She managed to raise herself up and shuffle to the door

like a penguin. She threw the door open, but the action propelled her forward. Lexi lost

her balance and collapsed once again.

*

Jake looked down at Lexi sprawled on the floor, “Are you alright?” he lowered himself to help Lexi get to her feet.

“Sorry, I’m all tangled. The knots of the afghan got caught up in my fishnets.”

“Why are you still wearing last night’s clothes?”

Lexi turned red, “I wanted to get some cleaning done before you came over. Guess I fell asleep.” She teetered forward while motioning her hand around the house.

Jake caught her along her back and under her knees, lifting her against his chest. “Where do you want to go?”

“The bedroom.”

“Lexi, I do love your line of thought.” He winked at her.

“I need to shower and change, of course,” she hit his chest playfully, “Go that way,” Lexi pointed to the opposite wall. Jake started in the direction, “Turn right.”

Jake took in the surroundings of the room, soft green walls, dark brown wood furniture, and sheer off-white curtains. It suited Lexi and more to the point, him. He could seduce her in this room. At least it wasn’t pink with stuffed animals everywhere. He shuddered remembering his first time with his high-school sweetheart, Fran Something. Jake never was good at names.

“Do you need anything else?” Jake asked with anticipation, depositing Lexi on the bed.

“I don’t think so.”

“Alright, I’ll go wait in the living room.”

“Okay.”

Jake no sooner closed the door than a loud THUMP came from the other side of it,

“Are you okay?” he peeked back into Lexi’s bedroom.

Lexi was face-first on the floor trying to get back up. She looked like a bright caterpillar inching its way along the wooden floor. “It seems I need help taking off these stockings,” she said, without even looking up.

Jake smiled wide. “My pleasure.” He helped Lexi back up onto the bed and looked into her sea-green eyes. She seemed to stare at him mesmerized, mouth agape. Lexi darted her pink tongue out to lick her lips. Jake let out a guttural exhale.

“The afghan,” she spoke at last.

“Of course.” Jake looked down at her black stockings and wondered how to accomplish the task at hand without seducing Lexi. Why not seduce her? It was good practice, and really, what was the worst that could happen? She might say ‘no’. Jake could live with a ‘no’. He wondered if he would regret not touching her.

Austin Nights in Savannah On Sale!

Title:  Austin Nights in Savannah

Series:  Caulfield Cowboys Book Three

Author:  Tina Holland

Genre: Contemporary Cowboy Romance

Release Date:  June 20, 2019

Blurb:

Forensic accountant Savannah Andrews has a reputation for getting the job done. No matter what. Now she’s on her toughest assignment. Recruited by the FBI to take down the DeLugge crime family, Savannah is in the wrong place at the right time.

Federal Marshal Austin Caulfield’s timing has always been excellent. He’s surprised when he comes to Vegas to retrieve a witness at a sex club to find his childhood sweetheart on an auction block. Austin has no choice but to save her.

As Savannah and Austin get closer, limits are tested and secrets revealed. Nothing in Vegas is what it seems, least of all the club Flesh. Will Savannah find out the secrets behind the notorious club? Will Austin get his witness to the stand, or will Austin’s nights in Savannah distract them both?

Austin-Nights-Mockup2Excerpt:

Savannah turned in shock after what the biker had said. Austin. Here. Again. It was too much of a coincidence for her. He was here on business. The likelihood they were here on two separate incidences was not impossible but very unlikely.

“We have to talk,” she leaned over the bar, whispering in Austin’s ear.

“About?” he drawled.

“Why you’re here.”

“Well darling, as much as it damages your ego, it’s not always about you.” His voice rose, causing patrons to take an interest in what should be a private conversation.

“Why can’t it?” She reached out, grabbing the collar of his shirt. She needed to stay in character, at least that’s what she told herself as she leaned in for a kiss.

What a kiss!

Austin’s lips were firm but soft.

A sexy Vegas bartender would be aggressive was the mantra in her brain. She pressed her tongue against his closed mouth for entrance.

He gave in.

Savannah and Austin’s tongues danced around one another, each trying to control the kiss, before he pulled back, loosening her hold.

“If you’re going to be that way, I can be all about you. What time do you get off?” he asked.

“Whenever you let me,” she winked.

“And what time will you let me?”

“I’m done at two. Is that soon enough, cowboy?”

“I guess it’ll be soon enough.”

“Savannah,” Zach interrupted her banter with Austin.

“Yeah?”

“Guy over there is asking ‘bout you.” Zach nodded toward the end of the bar.

“Later cowboy, don’t forget about me.”

“Hard not to, and I mean literally.” Austin’s voice followed her down the length of the bar.

Savannah smiled. She’d enjoyed her role-playing with Austin far too much. It set the tone for what should be a very good mood until she saw the “guy” in question.

“Hey Barry, what can I get you?” She forced a smile showing her teeth; however, her voice remained cool.

“We need to talk.”

“You want something to drink while we chat?” What the hell was Barry up to? If he didn’t lower his voice, he’d blow her cover. Idiot.

“In private,” he forced through clenched teeth.

“Zach, I’m going on break,” she shouted toward Austin’s direction.

“Got you covered.”

“I’ll be right back, gentlemen.” As soon as she lifted up the piano swing, Barry grabbed her arm and hauled her toward the backroom. Once they were far enough from the patrons, he pressed her tightly up against the wall.

“What the fu—”

“Shhh…act as if you enjoy it. This club thinks I’m your pimp, remember.”

“All the more reason I wouldn’t.” She stomped her Justin Gypsy boots down on his tennis covered foot.

“Geez.” He stumbled backward, shaking his foot like the hokey-pokey dance.

“What do you want, Barry?” Savannah was sick of him and his antics. She wanted him gone, so she could do this job and go back to normal life.

“I need money.” At her suspicious look, he continued, “To continue funding our operation.”

“What funding? I’m in. I can wrap this up by the end of the week.”

“I need the money.” There was no mistaking the desperation in his voice.

Savannah took a hard look at Barry-the bloodshot eyes, the dirty trench coat, and the stink of alcohol shots.

Dani Loves Dallas Released

Title:  Dani Loves Dallas

Series:  Caulfield Cowboys Book Two

Author:  Tina Holland

Genre: Contemporary Cowboy Menage a’ Trois 

Release Date:  May 9, 2019

danilovesdallasBlurb:

Dallas Caulfield had a pretty good life until Dani Stewart arrived. She makes him feel things he thought buried and brings about a rivalry with his best friend, Cal Ryder.

Dani is looking for a break from a job where she flies non-stop and Dallas fits the bill nicely. Dani barely has a chance to have any fun when Cal, a one-night stand, gets in the way.

Cal never got over his fascination with Dani. So he agrees to share her with Dallas. As the lovers delve deeper, secrets arise. Cal is willing to risk everything to acquire the woman he loves. There’s only one problem, Dani loves Dallas.

Excerpt:

The next morning Cal left in a rush for Vegas, leaving Dani and Dallas alone. Dallas asked her if she’d like to visit a local winery.

“That sounds romantic,” she said quietly, before pecking him on the cheek to go change.

“We usually have Grapefest every fall, so hopefully our tour will be relaxed.” He started the conversation as they drove to her first winery.

“Maybe I should come down for the festival sometime?” She faltered asking the question. Dani couldn’t understand why she was nervous. She’d already slept with Dallas, but somehow driving in the car seemed far more intimate than the acts she’d committed with Cal and Dallas.

“I’d like that.” Dani watched as he maneuvered the car effortlessly, she couldn’t help but remember his hands on her hips last night as he drew her back towards him. A moan passed her lips.

“I’d like some of that too,” Dallas tilted his golden head and gave her a devilish smile. “You don’t even know what I’m thinking,” she retorted.

“Last night.”

“Yes,” Dani didn’t deny it. What the three of them shared was so carnal and so special. Her two lovers were so comfortable with each other and so adoring towards her that she wasn’t about to deny her attraction for each of them, even though her heart would only love one. She squirmed uncomfortably in her seat.

“Sorry,” he muttered. She twisted, too startled to form a response. “I shouldn’t have brought it up, not without Cal,” Dallas focused his attention back on the two-lane highway.

“You can certainly bring it up. As a matter of fact, I’d like you to do more.”

“But I thought…”

“Because I was squirming that I might be uncomfortable?” she asked. Dani knew she was playing with fire, but she didn’t really care.

He nodded his agreement. “I am uncomfortable, not because of the subject matter but because I’m damn horny.”

“Are we allowed to do anything about that?”

“Because of Cal?” He nodded again.

“I’m gonna say ‘Hell yeah.’ Cal has no hold over me.” She raised her chin and met his eyes.

“He is rather fond of you, though,” his relaxing voice probed.

“So are you.” Dani wasn’t about to involve Cal in a conversation about what he may or may not want. He hadn’t said shit, and the boy certainly knew better than to tell her what to do. She went from being horny to more than a little irritated that Cal would tell his friend she was off-limits. Cal certainly didn’t give her the same courtesy.

“Did he tell you not to sleep with me?” she asked. She wondered what happened that would make Cal so possessive.

“No.”

“Did he tell you we were a couple?”

“No.”

“Then I think what you and I do is our business, not Cal’s,” she huffed.
