Teaser Tuesday #28

wps7

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

 

~ Grab your current read

 

~ Open to a random page

 

~ Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

 

~ BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

 

~ Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Today’s teaser is from my current read, Cat Jonhson‘s A PRINCE AMONG MEN

She drew in a deep breath, and Ryan thought maybe she would run back to wherever she’d come from sooner rather than later over the latrines alone.

 

As would I. I wouldn’t want to poop in a bag like I’m picking up after a dog and then have to carry it to a shit pit. Pee-yew!

A friend of mine told me about this freebie, so color me stunned when I find out that she writes more than one series! I’ve read her Harlequin books FOR YEARS and never thought to check out her website. How remiss of me! I just thought she only wrote for Harlequin. Looking forward to reading more in this series. And her other ones.

Daisy Honey fled Trusty, Colorado, after years of battling rumors sparked by her gorgeous looks and lust-inducing name. Now a physician on the brink of a promising career, she reluctantly returns home when her father is injured in a farming accident. Daisy expects the small-town girls who hurt her in the past to take cheap shots again–but she’s completely unprepared for a run-in with tall, dark, and wickedly sexy Luke Braden, the only man who has ever stood up for her–and the man she’s never forgotten.
Luke Braden is handsome, wealthy, and the best damn gypsy horse breeder in the Midwest. After a restless youth, he’s finally ready to settle down–only connecting with women is nothing like connecting with horses, and he’s never met a woman worth the energy. After an arrest in a neighboring town, Luke’s past comes back to haunt him, and he realizes that his inability to find love runs deeper than he ever imagined.
A chance encounter sweeps Luke and Daisy into a world of passion. For the first time ever, Luke feels a connection, but Daisy’s life in Trusty is anything but permanent, and Luke can’t manage a future until he puts his past to rest.

Brianna Heart has a six-year old daughter and a twelve-year plan to keep her life as simple as possible until Layla turns eighteen. That means swearing off relationships and the drama that goes along with them, working two jobs, and being the best damn mother she can be.

The last thing Capital Series Grand Prix racer Hugh Braden wants after dating media-hungry leggy models and money-hungry fan girls is a blind date. But how could he turn down a favor to one of his best friends? Hugh expected the date to go poorly, but he didn’t expect to be intensely attracted to the beautiful brown-eyed bartender who completely blows him off—and steals his every thought thereafter.

When Brianna’s perfectly orchestrated life turns upside down, Hugh is there to help, softening the turmoil, and maybe even rescuing her heart from the lonely place where it has been hiding. Can a man who doesn’t believe in fate and a woman who doesn’t believe in true love find happiness in each other’s arms forever?

Handsome, wealthy resort owner Treat Braden is used to getting what he wants. When Max Armstrong walked into his life six months earlier, he saw right through the efficient and capable façade she wore like a shield, to the sweet, sensual woman who lay beneath. She sparked an unfamiliar desire in him for more than a one-night stand, leaving his heart reeling and his blood boiling. But one mistake caused her to turn away, and now, after six months of longing for the one woman he cannot have, he’s going home to try to forget her all together.
Max Armstrong has a successful career, a comfortable lifestyle, and she’s never needed a man to help her find her way—until Treat Braden caught her attention at a wedding in Nassau, causing a surge of emotions too reminiscent of the painful past she’d spent years trying to forget. Max will do anything to avoid reliving that pain—including forgoing her toe-curling, heart-pounding desire for Treat.
When a chance encounter turns into a night of intense passion, Treat realizes that the mistake he made six months earlier may cause him to lose Max completely. He will do everything within his power to win her heart forever—and Max is forced to face her hurtful past head on for the man she cannot help but love.

Librarian Callie Barnes has visions of reading and relaxing–and maybe having a few too many drinks–on her girls’ weekend away. Her hopes are crushed when her friends pull into a dude ranch instead of a spa, and she refuses to stay longer than one night. That is…until she realizes the ranch is owned by sinfully sexy, and dangerously rugged, Wes Braden–the subject of her late-night fantasies.
Fearless rancher Wes Braden thinks he’s the luckiest guy on the planet when the sweet, sexy librarian from his hometown shows up at his ranch. Their connection is white-hot, making it impossible for either to ignore their carnal desires. Wes is more than willing to convert sweet Callie from chick lit to a world of erotic romance, but Callie ties sex to love, and Wes avoids commitment like the plague.
Callie is thrust into physically demanding activities that ignite her deepest fears. Luckily, Wes is as tender as he is strong, and he’s there every step of the way to help her find her inner strength. With Callie’s influence, Wes might even discover that he’s been nursing a few fears of his own. Passion pulls Callie and Wes from their safe, comfortable lives into each other’s arms, and they’re about to find out just how alike they really are.

 

A word of note: These are not the only books in the series. these are just the ones I’ve read. I love Melissa’s covers, from ALL of her series, and really enjoyed reading these books. The Braden family is made up of gorgeous, sexy men and the love scenes were fantabulous. What I love about this author is that she’s indie. But you can’t tell! Sometimes you can, especially if it’s indie or small press, but she writes so good that you can’t tell.

Out of the above books, my favorite was FATED FOR LOVE. Callie made me laugh. She’s the ultimate bookworm and would rather be buried in a book than venture outside. Her best friends dupe her into going to a dude ranch and there, she’s exposed to all sorts of activities she’s never experienced. I found myself laughing and shaking my head at some of the adventures she’s gets into, but hunky Wes is right there as a trusty guide.

I’m looking forward to reading more about the Bradens.

Interesting fact about Colin: He was a guitarist for the band The Enemies, a five piece band from O’Donoghue’s native Ireland. I even found a YouTube clip for you to enjoy. You’re welcome.
