She’s made him an offer he can’t refuse – or can he? Cody Mitchell has been planning a hot little love affair with his best friend’s widow – the woman he’s wanted for three long years. But he finds Melanie’s acceptance comes with outrageous conditions. She considers him a stallion with suitable bloodlines, but Cody had a no-strings, no-kids fling in mind. Mel wants his DNA every bit as much as she wants his desirable body, so who will win this battle of the bedroom – the handsome pilot or the feisty airline heiress?
This passionate love story is part of Kris Pearson's Wellington series. It's set in Wellington, New Zealand, and the beautiful harbor is almost another character in the cast. It's a friends-to-lovers story, and a workplace romance - the progression of two people who were deeply attracted the moment they met, but had to resist the fierce pull or hurt someone they both loved. There's wealth and ambition, and plenty of Fifty Shades of Grey red-hot sex - as the reviews assure you. But will Melanie achieve what she wants? Will Cody give her the gift she craves?
Come for a 'holiday' Downunder and enjoy a summertime Christmas in a beautiful location with two people hell-bent on happiness.
Bonus! FREE ‘Ravishing Rose’ novella at the end of ‘Hot for You’
WARNING: Hot pilot, willing widow, very high stakes.
Read an excerpt:
Cody groaned silently, imagining exactly what they could get up to together, summoning the sensation of those beautifully manicured pink nails scraping over his skin...of his own hands roaming at will over her.
Damn—she looks deliciously prim peering through her little gold framed lenses. Like a sexy school-marm ready to cane my butt.
But even without the planes, her outlandish offer was still far too weird for him. Women didn’t do this. Each of his former girlfriends—and there’d been quite a few in his thirty-six years—had been intensely keen not to get pregnant unless marriage was included in the deal. With a background like his, it never had been. The only son of an unmarried mother and a father who was frequently missing, he was determined no child of his would go through the same deprivations and torments.
He had condoms stashed in his wallet, various jacket and trouser pockets, his bedside drawer and the bathroom cabinet. And here was Mel demanding they go skin-to-skin. It was a long time since he’d enjoyed that particular pleasure. His body tightened even further. His cock now stood ramrod hard, and his balls were filled with hot lead. His brain smoked as he imagined the smooth naked slide of warm slippery flesh against flesh.
“Eight o’clock okay for you?” he heard her ask. He’d been miles away, eyes closed, jaw clenched. “Eight o’clock, Cody?” she repeated. “It’ll give me time to freshen up.”
He snapped back from wherever he’d been and returned to the smart blue and white CustomAir office, then placed the crystal tumbler very precisely on the corner of her desk. He made no move to stop her when she poured herself another half drink and upended the last of the Scotch into his glass.
“Eight? Fine. I’ll pick you up?
Kris writes sizzling contemporary romance, pure and simple. Well, maybe not that pure! They're sexy stories about couples who fall in love, and into bed along the way, just like real people do.
