Trick and Treat

Written by Cara Lockwood

Chapter Seven

A blush crept up her cheek. “You always so sure of yourself, Maverick?” Her green eyes glowed. Flirting? Check. Was she moving closer to him? Suddenly their legs touched. He could almost feel the softness of her outer thigh against his leg. Warm, inviting.

Well, damn. Suddenly the night seemed a whole hell of a lot more interesting.

The Material Girl wrapped a bit of hair around her finger, her red lips quirking up in a smile. “You sure it’s just not you who wants to kiss me?”

Boy, this woman was gorgeous.

“Oh, I know I want to kiss you, too. That’s why it would be a tragedy if we don’t.” He grinned. “Besides, if we don’t, then we’ll get to your destination, and we’ll awkwardly stare into each other’s eyes and then Paul will get upset, and… I mean, we can’t upset Paul. That’s just rude.”

Paul glanced at Hunter in the rearview and grinned.

“Oh, well, if it’s for Paul’s sake.” Material Girl took the cross around her neck and wrapped the chain once around her finger. “Why didn’t you say so?”

She bit her full pink lower lip. This was a woman who knew what she wanted. He liked that.

Oh, it was on. He looked at the woman’s full lips, just parted. He would give her a kiss of a lifetime, he thought, one that would leave her begging for more.

“For Paul,” he said, moving closer to her.

“For Paul,” she murmured, lips so close to his, they were almost touching.

Her Secret Valentine

Written by Nicola Marsh

Some people might say getting married on Valentine’s Day is the height of romance, but for divorce lawyer and romance cynic Kiara Hastings it’s the height of cliché. But as her sister’s maid of honour she must suffer through the cake tastings and tulle. Until an encounter with a sexy gardener leads to a red-hot fling that promises to make the wedding preparations more pleasurable. Kiara is stunned when the man who made her scream with pleasure is introduced to her later as Ashton Cromwell, the groom’s brother and the best man!

Ashton agrees to keep their sexy secret and wants to continue enjoying their mind-blowing chemistry behind closed bedroom doors. Since his divorce, Ashton has earned himself a playboy reputation, and when it seems like having Kiara on his arm could be good for business, he proposes a fake relationship until the wedding is over.

But as Valentine’s Day approaches, these two romance cynics find they’re not immune to all the love in the air, and that their pretence is starting to feel all too real…
