Excerpt from The Billionaire’s Runaway Curves:

At the end of her work day, Ellie left through one of the back doors of the hotel to walk to the nearby day care and pick up Riley before heading home. She hadn’t taken more than a few steps outside when she saw movement out of the corner of her eye and someone cleared their throat.

“Ellie.”

She swung toward the man who had come up beside her—the man who had haunted her fantasies for nearly nine years. A cold ball of lead formed in her stomach and she couldn’t think of anything to say.

He looked as good as ever–tall, dark and expensively handsome. His dark hair was neatly cut, his blue eyes framed by just a couple of new laugh lines. His full lips were pressed hard together.

Theo put his glove-covered hand on her cheek. “God, Ellie, where’ve you been all these years?” Before she could move, he swooped down and pressed his lips against hers.

Desire unfurled inside her. She curled her hands around his strong upper arms. Before she could do something foolish like pull him closer, she pushed him away. “No.”

Theo’s jaw tightened. “I’ve missed you.”

She still didn’t know what to say to him. She started down the path. “I don’t have time to talk.”

As soon as he started following her, she knew she couldn’t go to the day care right now. She had to get rid of him first. So she stopped and let him catch up to her.

“Still running away?” he said. “I saw you in the lobby. What on earth did I ever do to you to make you run from me like that?”

“It isn’t like that.”

“Then what’s it like?” When she didn’t answer right away, he said, “Why’d you leave, Ellie? I thought we had something good and then all of a sudden you’d disappeared. Do you have any idea how long I looked for you?”

How Do I Love Them? Let Me Count the Book Boyfriends… Romantic Rendevous H0p

romanticrendevousbanner

So, apparently I need to pick just one favorite book boyfriend? And I have no idea how to do that. How can I choose when there are so many awesome book-men out there?

So, since I can’t decide, I’ll just tell you about one of the awesome book boyfriends I “dated” recently. 🙂 Zack Todd is Sheriff of the Three Sisters Island (a place I would totally love to live…if it existed, which I don’t think it does) and a sweet, charming, understanding, strong hero type of guy. (Yes, I love him. Who wouldn’t?) His job is fairly slow but when needed to, he can protect his neighbors and save damsels in distress. And you should see what he does in his off hours!

Zack is the hero from Dance Upon the Air by Nora Roberts. 🙂

Which book boyfriends do you love?

Excerpt from The Billionaire’s Curvy Guide:

He didn’t answer for a long time. When she looked up, she found his gaze trained on her. “The stuff you gave me yesterday said you do guided tours. Personally.”

Damn it. Yes, she had been designated the guided tour girl. She loved the country around here and enjoyed showing it off to guests, no matter the season. Except him. Walking through the forest alone with him seemed like a very bad idea. “It’s a little cold for–”

“The brochure said all four seasons. Talked about how beautiful the mountains could be in the winter. I’m available this afternoon.”

Inwardly, she groaned.

“This is me being persuasive,” he said.

“No, this is you being hard to avoid.”

“Same difference. The more time you spend with me, the harder it will be to resist me. At least that’s my hope.”

His hope? Seeing this first chink in his armor, a little bit of doubt, somehow made him that much more attractive. Damn it.

Zoe pulled her calendar up on her computer. “I could do two to three.”

“I’ll take it. Although that’s a little short. Maybe we can do a second tour tomorrow for two to three hours.”

Heaven help her. “I’m not sure I can manage two whole hours tomorrow.”

“Three. Three hours.” He grabbed the edge of her laptop and pulled it toward him. “Let me take a look at your calendar and I’ll see how to fit it in.”

She yanked her computer toward her. “I can check my own calendar, thanks.”

A smile danced around his lips. “The more you fight this, the more I can see I’m getting under your skin.”

Like a bur. She didn’t say that, though. He was a guest. She had to keep reminding herself that or she’d say something totally out of line and then she’d regret it. “I’m just protective about my laptop. Most people are.”

“Ri-ight.”

He wasn’t going to give up on the tour. She knew it. She looked over her calendar. “The day after tomorrow I could do two hours together at lunchtime. But it’d be pretty hard to hike over lunch…”

“I’ll get them to make us a picnic.”

She’d totally walked into that one. “It’s a little cold for a picnic.”

“Surely you can think of some cabin or shack or something where we can sit down for a few minutes and eat?”

She could, but she didn’t want to. The two of them, alone in an enclosed space? Recipe for disaster. “I’ll think about it.” Yeah, she’d think about how to avoid it at all costs. “Eating while on the move might work better. We’ll get cold quickly if we stop.”

“I imagine we can find ways to keep warm.”

“Mr. Marks!”

“Bastian.”

Damn it. Why couldn’t she keep control of the situation with him?

“Bastian. Say it, Zoe.”

She added the two guided tours to her calendar. “Besides the lift tickets and the tours, was there anything else you needed?”

“Yes.” His voice sounded like a low growl.

She couldn’t help but look up at him and immediately wished she hadn’t. His gaze bored right through her.

“I want you to say my name.”

Zoe sucked in her breath. Was this some kind of game? Or maybe a test? And how could she back out of this without playing?

She’d just have to ignore him. “Do you expect to ski every day? I can arrange a week-long pass for you.”

“Ignoring me isn’t going to work.”

“It’s working so far,” she said under her breath.

“Think again.”

“Week-long pass–yes? No?”

He waited several long seconds and then said, “Yes.”

“Good.” She typed up the order as quickly as she could. “Anything else?”

“I still need to know your favorite restaurant in town.”

“You never give up.”
