"Oh, you are in for it now, babe," he said in a deep, desire laden voice. And that was all the warning that I got before his mouth was on mine, giving me a scorching kiss that left my head spinning more than the eggnog had. I leaned into it, lifting one leg over his lap to straddle him, my arms now around his shoulders.

I could feel his considerable hardness pressed against me as our hips ground together. His hands found the zipper of my snowsuit and hastily pulled it down, allowing him to reach inside and slide his palms over my breasts.

I was getting desperate to feel him inside of me, the longing becoming stronger and stronger until I couldn't stand it a second longer. Freezing weather be damned, I tore myself away from Jasper's crushing kiss, pulling my arms out of the snowsuit and adjusting myself so I could slide the rest of it down to my knees, taking my leggings with it and leaving me completely naked from the waist down. I threw the blanket aside and turned to position myself on my hands and knees, looking back over my shoulder and watching the look of raw hunger that danced in his evergreen gaze.

"Holy fuck," he said softly, his tone filled with reverence. "You are the hottest fucking thing I have ever seen."

"I want you Jasper." My voice sounded ragged , husky, pleading almost. I moved my face forward again, the view of the whole valley so far below us making me feel as though I was on top of the world. I could hear him moving behind me, but I couldn't see anything he was doing, which was making the anticipation build to a crescendo. I was almost to orgasm and he hadn't even started yet.

His ice-cold and snowflake tattooed hands gripped my hips with a bruising strength, sending goose bumps racing across my skin. I could sense him inching closer to my sex, preparing to enter me. I was aching in need, wanting him to fill me with his thick shaft more than I'd ever wanted anything in my life. When he finally pushed into me, I let out a triumphant scream of satisfaction, my voice echoing through the woods around us. He moved in me roughly, the force of his thrusts rocking me to my core.

We rutted like wild beasts on that cliffside. A gentle snow began to fall, dusting us with powder and making the whole world look clean and new. The sharp breeze was howling against the stones, a mirror of our own cries of passion. Both Jasper and I had let loose our inhibitions, our primal instincts driving us in unison.

My release was close; I could feel it coiling inside of me, on the verge of explosion. One more thrust of his diamond hard cock into my heat and I was pushed over the edge, my pussy convulsing around him and drawing his own climax out. He dug his inked up fingers into my hips with a fierce brutality, holding me against him tightly as he spilled himself into me and let out a deep, possessive cry into the starry night.

Holy shit. That was a wilder ride than the fucking snowmobile could ever give me.

Seven years ago, I thought I could save Beth, the girl I loved from the monster who was supposed to take care of us. I thought I could keep Beth and all the other kids at St. Jude’s Home for Court Placed Juveniles safe.

I failed. Badly. Now we all have blood on our hands and owe a dangerous man a very dangerous debt. We don’t know when he’ll come calling for payment, but when he does – we pay, or we suffer.

When my turn comes, I’m ready for anything.

Except seeing Beth again.



No one ever tells you that the cost of having your dreams come true is literally every single other part of your life. Yes, I’m a huge pop star these days, but I’m pretty much a mess, too.

I’ve spent my life hiding behind disguises, make-up and costumes, all to protect myself from the kind of pain that comes from revealing your true self to someone.

I did that once. With Tommy. The only person I ever loved. It didn’t turn out so well.

And now, with everything else falling apart around me, I’m suddenly in the backseat of his car.

Being kidnapped.

And the past we’ve both tried to run from is catching up with us.

Contains The Debt: A Prologue and 50,000 more words in the continuation of Tommy and Beth's story.

After her latest disaster, Pepper moves across the country to start over but, as usual, her life has other plans, namely in the form of Derek Cashette, her former teenage crush and now ridiculously handsome friend of her older brother.

Derek is determined to salvage the train wreck of her life and Pepper’s determined not to let him. Her life is her problem and, dammit, why can’t she be her own hero?

But sometimes fate has other plans. Or maybe it’s hormones. Especially when her rescuer comes with a killer smile, a chest Thor would be jealous of, and a butt that any girl just wants to—

So why in the world did this rough-and-tough Costa enforcer come to my rescue?

As I make my way up his arm, scrubbing gently at the bloody lacerations and dark bruises, I come across a familiar sight. A tattoo. One I have not seen with my own two eyes in many years. The sight of it instantly throws me back, and a tidal wave of confused emotions overtake me. I freeze up, staring at the intricate lines of the tattoo, suddenly remembering all the things I have tried so hard to forget, dark things that time has buried.

And with it, an overwhelming sense of urgency to ask, to know for certain that this man is who my heart wills him to be. By chance, by fate, by magic. By whatever means necessary for him to have walked back into my world again, albeit beaten down and roughened up and subdued.

I look up from the tattoo to meet his eyes, and the answer to my question is there in his pale green eyes long before the words even leave my lips. It’s him. I know it is. But I still can’t stop myself from asking, just to be sure.

“Bruno? Is… is that you?”

✯BOOK BLITZ:✯ Believe in My Heart by Maria K. Alexander {EXCERPT + GIVEAWAY!}

Believe in My Heart by Maria K. Alexander

Release Date: November 17th 2017 by The Wild Rose Press
Series: Tangled Hearts #4
Pages: 117
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Culinary arts student, Hope Mastriano, is down on her luck. Homeless on Thanksgiving Day, she’s caught trying to break into her cousin’s apartment by her sexy boss and lifelong secret crush.

Since getting dumped seven months ago, head chef Vinnie DiFrancesco has been in a frustrating holding pattern. He returns relaxed from a retreat, but his life is sent into a tailspin when he offers Hope, the event coordinator at his family’s trattoria, temporary housing. 

With the trattoria’s traditional Italian Christmas Eve charity dinner slated to be featured on a local TV segment and things heating up in his apartment, the two must set aside their different visions to make the event a success. When a computer glitch threatens their plans, Hope proposes a risky solution. Vinnie must believe in Hope and his heart in order to secure the future of the restaurant and make it a Christmas to remember.


He jogged up the stairs to the fifth floor. Turning into the main hall, Vinnie made his way toward his apartment while digging in his pocket for the key and almost collided with three suitcases and a stack of boxes blocking his path.

Someone was moving out…or in, given the person was fiddling with the lock—with a hanger. He had moved in a couple days before his trip to California and hadn’t met any neighbors, but he did recall seeing a tall blonde woman walking out of this apartment one morning as he came in from his morning jog. This one was a few inches over five feet, and although he couldn’t see much, dark hair peeked out of the white knit cap on her head.

“Hey, can I help you?” he called.

She shrieked and dropped the hanger. “I can’t find my key and locked myself out.”

He knew that voice. “If that’s the case, why don’t you call the super?”

“My phone’s dead, and I don’t have his number.”

Vinnie pulled out his phone. “Then it’s a good thing I have it. I’ll give him a buzz.”

“No!” she cried and turned to face him.

Wide brown eyes framed by long brown lashes stared up at him.


She pushed back the cap and brushed aside the bangs that fell into her eyes. “Vinnie. Funny meeting you here.”

“Same goes. You don’t live here,” Vinnie countered, surprised to be faced with one of the pantry chefs from where he worked.

Hope raised her hands. “I know how this looks, but I can explain.”

“You can explain why you’re trying to break into this apartment?”

“It’s my cousin Faith’s place. And I wasn’t breaking in.”

Vinnie raised an eyebrow and shifted his gaze to the hanger on the ground.

“Okay, so maybe it seems as though I was breaking in, but the key she gave me no longer works.” She reached in her coat pocket and withdrew a key similar to Vinnie’s.

“Did you try calling your cousin?”

“Gee, no, I didn’t think of that,” she sneered. “She’s on a cruise and then staying in Florida a few days for business. I wasn’t kidding about my phone dying and not knowing the super’s number.”

Vinnie felt a pain in his temple. Probably from not having enough to eat or drink on the red-eye from LA. “Fine, let’s get your stuff in my place. You can use my phone.”

Hope grabbed a handle of a suitcase. “Thanks, Vin. You’re nicer than people at work say.”

He paused while unlocking his door. Well, hell. Is that what they say about me? Guess he needed to do damage control with his staff. Even though his parents owned Trattoria DiFrancesco, Vinnie was the head chef and in charge of hiring of anyone who worked in the kitchen.

Including the pretty spitfire who had just swept past him, Hope Mastriano.

He hoisted the stack of boxes and followed her inside. When she headed back out, he perused the hall to see how much more stuff she had.

There were two more suitcases and a pet carrier.

“You run away or something?” Vinnie asked.

“Moved out of Steve’s place. I’m done with that deadbeat.”

“On Thanksgiving Day and with nowhere to go?”

“It’s been long overdue. Besides, I thought I could crash at Faith’s until I figured out my next step.”

“And in there?” He nodded to the carrier.

Hope raised it up a few inches. “This is Lucky, my cat.”

Vinnie was not a fan of cats, with their sharp eyes and sneaky ways. He peeked inside and into the green eyes of a white cat. He closed the front door and stepped around Hope’s stuff, including the cat, which she pulled out of the carrier. Lucky leaned forward and sniffed him before letting out a soft mew.

Between the pixie-haired cutie and the cat, the peace and relaxation he had found out west was a distant memory. By the time he got to the trattoria for Thanksgiving dinner, Vinnie was going to need a beer or glass of wine.

Possibly both.
