He’s always wanted her. Now’s his chance to claim what’s his.
School teacher Marceline Bellini gave up everything—men, sex, anything resembling a social life—to raise her young daughter. To be the perfect parent. But when she attends an engagement party in her standard stick-in-the-mud mode, her friends begin plying Marceline with shots. Just enough to convince her that a little fun doesn’t sound like a bad idea... and having some naughty fun is an even better one.
Like finding herself deliciously pressed against a dark alley wall by the very familiar and über-hot bod of her best friend’s older brother.
After years of waiting in painful silence, cop Aaron Robinson finally has Marceline’s attention. And man, does he have it. But nothing could have prepared either of them for the rush of fiery lust between them. So he’ll just have to convince Marceline he’s for real. And that a rainy, lust-fuelled romp is the first step to a lifetime of completely imperfect happiness...
What element of a story do you feel is the most important and necessary in most, if not all, novels? Why?
For me, both as a reader and as a writer, it’s the characters. A book can have the most amazing plot in existence, but if I don’t care about the characters, it won’t do anything for me. On the other side of things, if a book has outstanding characters that make me love them and hate them, it can become a favorite even if there are flaws elsewhere. When I walk away from a book, it’s the characters I remember fondly (or not so fondly), and it’s the characters that I fangirl about with friends and the internet.
- “The only mistake you made was thinking I’d let you walk out of here with another man.”
- “A bed, a bed, my kingdom for a bed.”
“Richard III?” She gave a breathless laugh. “That’s what you’re thinking about right now?”
Of course she’d recognize the quote. It still made him smile against the skin of her thigh. “Marceline.” He loved the way she shivered every time he said her name. “The only thing I’m thinking about right now is how you good you’re going to taste.”
- “Marceline, I might have kept my hands to myself for the last ten years, but don’t think for a second I’ve been unaffected.”
She’s stubborn to a fault, is incredibly independent, and has her own way of doing things. She’s also an amazing teacher and an even more amazing mother.
He’s one of the most responsible people she knows and he’s patient beyond belief. He’s also got a streak of honor a mile wide, takes care of everyone around him, and looks terrifyingly good in a pair of jeans.
About the author:
Katee Robert learned to tell stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her favorites then were the rather epic adventures of The Three Bears, but at age twelve she discovered romance novels and never looked back.
Though she dabbled in writing, life got in the way—as it often does—and she spent a few years traveling, living in both Philadelphia and Germany. In between traveling and raising her two wee ones, she had the crazy idea that she’d like to write a book and try to get published.
Her first novel was an epic fantasy that, God willing, will never see the light of day. From there, she dabbled in YA and horror, before finally finding speculative romance. Because, really, who wouldn’t want to write entire books about the smoking-hot relationships between two people?
She now spends her time—when not lost in Far Reach worlds—playing imaginary games with her wee ones, writing, ogling men, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
