MORE THAN A FEELING by Sara Richardson is out NOW!
(Heart of the Rockies, #3)
STOP RUNNING . . .AND START FALLING
For Ruby James the Walker Mountain Ranch is her safe haven. Here in Aspen, Colorado, she can finally build a quiet life for herself without fear of her old one rearing its ugly head. Or so Ruby thinks. Any single woman would be happy to indulge a tall, dark, and curious cop-but the closer Ruby gets to him, the closer she gets to losing her newfound peace.
Police officer Sawyer Hawkins is no stranger to secrets. He’s ready to leave town for good until a security threat brings him back to Walker Ranch, and Ruby’s gorgeous green eyes soon have him second-guessing his decision to go. Her kindness and quiet strength awaken feelings he’d thought long buried, even as her reluctance to talk about her past worries him. The cop in Sawyer only wants the truth-but the man in him wants Ruby in his arms forever . .
With a frustrated grunt, Sawyer leaned down and covered her lips with his.
A surprised squeal slipped out, but Sawyer silenced it by gently caressing her cheeks with his hands, running his tongue along the seam of her lips, melting her surprise into the warm throb of desire. How did he do it? How did he carry her away from reality like this, crossing out every protest that scrolled across her mind. Somehow Sawyer’s touch was a remedy against the fears that had branded her heart for so long.
Her mouth opened again, all on its own to let him in because he tasted so delicious, hot and wet and minty. She swept her tongue over his, bracing her hands against his chest when her knees threatened to give.
A hungry grunt resounded in Sawyer’s throat. Kissing her deeper, his hands lowered to her ribcage, strong and powerful, feeling their way up her body, and he nudged her against the refrigerator, which was a good thing because it was getting harder to stand.
He kissed his way across her cheek, then down her neck and she let her head fall to the side so he wouldn’t stop. Never. Stop.
But he did. Instead of kissing his way back up her neck, he traced his lips over to her ear.
“Now you don’t have to wonder if I’m suspicious,” he whispered, his hot breath making her quiver. “I don’t kiss women I don’t trust.”
A kiss. Is that what that was? Because it felt more like an electric shock, which was still resonating in her toes, by the way. “Okay,” was all she could manage.
A smile brought light to his eyes. “Okay,” he said.
Then he let her go, turned around, and left her alone in the kitchen.
