Her phone buzzed for the fourth time. She was ignoring someone. “Someone wants you,” he said into her mouth.

“It’s just Ayana.”

At the sound of her sister’s name, he pulled back. “She checks up on you a lot.”

“Constantly.” She fidgeted a little. “My sister thinks you just want in my pants.”

He did, though had shown restraint worthy of the Pope. He knew once he went there, it would mean something. He wasn’t ready for meaning. “Ah, But then you just want me for my kitchen.”

“Truth.”

He peered up at her place through the windshield. “Is that why I’ve never gotten past the front door? Because Ayana was home before?” His discipline really slipped around this woman.

“Yes. Is that bad?”

He grinned over at her. “Wise. Though, here I thought I was one of her favorite people.”

She grabbed his hand. “Oh, you are. It’s just she’s really protective of me. And…”

“I get it.” He didn’t really, not ever having that himself. But it worried him that she’d clearly been worried being with him would piss off her family. Which surprised the hell out of him. He rather like pissing off family members. Just his own. Not hers. “Well, tomorrow then? I know a great little bistro.”

“Knox. If I did ask you up, would you?” Her voice was so tentative, he felt like a heel. She thought he didn’t want her? After the mouth gymnastics they’d engaged in?

Still, for once, he felt like he had a bead on a woman—this one.

Rayen had confidence in her cooking but little else. She even talked about Washington not really being her place a few times, which did strange things to his heart rhythm. Then, how Ayana was constantly questioning her about her business, her decisions. It irritated.

But what did he know about family? “I wouldn’t want to upset your sister.” Or himself. He’d drawn a good boundary between them. Kissing. Hand holding. No more.

“She’s out of town. So…” She smiled seductively. “Want to come up?”

Having Rayen look at him like she wanted him was mesmerizing. Worse, it threatened to rearrange his decision about keeping her at arms’ length.

“It’s okay. I understand.” She said quickly and cracked open her door. She was hurt. She might as well as punched him. He was used to disappointing women. God knew, why most of the time. But with Rayen, her fragility was so evident, it made him stop her.

He grasped her arm. “I don’t think you do.”

She closed her door again. “You think you’re going to hurt me. You’re not. I’m a grown woman. No one seems to get that around here.” She let her head fall back on the headrest.

He reached over, put his mouth on hers. More he just needed that connection to her. Let her see and feel how much of a woman he believed her to be.

When he broke the kiss, she blinked at him. So many questions filled her eyes, and he wanted all the answers to be “yes” for her.

Truth was, by now, an interest this strong in a woman would have had her nude, under him, long ago. Why was he holding himself back?

“Knox.” Her voice had a plea in it—something he felt straight down to his groin.

His resolve crumbled to dust. “Let’s go up.”

Time to let out the very big sekret I’ve been keeping for over a year. (Still can’t believe I was able to do it.) It’s a new book! For You, Anything is a steamy, opposites attract romcom available exclusively this month at the HEA Collective Patreon channel. Scroll down for how to get access to this story about how a personal chef puts a billionaire real estate mogul in his place–repeatedly. So fun!

Rayen came to Washington, D.C. to do great things. Not  fall for a womanizing billionaire real estate developer.

Budding personal chef Rayen is quickly learning several things about this town. No one cooks here. People love her pre-colonial food. Running a business is hard. And her bachelor clients are hopeless around women.

Like billionaire real estate developer Knox Michaelson. Sure, he’s gorgeous, wealthy and charming—sometimes. But he’s clueless the about the opposite sex. Rayen tells him, too.

Which is why when he offers to help her with her business in exchange for tips on women, she’s shocked but can’t say no. She needs the help, and the “let me show you my penthouse view” player needs education.

But an inconvenient heat quickly forms between them, and Rayen finds herself not only taking in his, ahem, view but falling for the man who’s completely wrong for her.

Or is he?

All of this month’s novellas focus on the opposites attract trope. Visit here to learn how to access them all — including For You, Anything.

My 20th book is live! I can remember the day that my very first book, Holiday Ties, went live. I thought “that’s it. I’ve done it.”

But here’s the thing about writing. It’s addictive. I wanted to do more. So, I did. And even more after that. It’s been an incredible eight years.  Thank you for going on this book journey with me.

Now, about Cole and Scarlett. Some people call Scarlett the devil. Others say she’s an angel. Cole isn’t sure which. Thankfully for us, Scarlett decided to help him clarify his assessment–mostly by being herself. Finding your courage to become fully yourself is a common theme in my books. This one is no exception. Let’s just say Scarlett taught me a lot.

As always, thank you for reading. xo
