Trick and Treat

Written by Cara Lockwood

Chapter Eight

Lizzie just agreed to kiss the hottest man she’d ever met. I’m taking this whole Material Girl thing too far, she thought, glancing anxiously at the driver in the front seat. Would Paul watch? Then she glanced at the man’s dark, playful eyes and thought, Who cares if he does?

Lizzie was flirting with danger and she liked it. Besides, wasn’t this what Halloween was for? Taking risks, putting herself out there… Kissing amazingly hot men who probably wouldn’t give her the time of day if she was wearing her normal tortoiseshell glasses and prim librarian’s button-up oxford?

He reached up and touched her cheek, gently, and the caress made her shiver. He was going to take his time, she realized, and she liked that. His lips met hers gently at first, gentlemanly. They were firm and in control as he deepened the kiss a little, putting his hand on the small of her back and leading her closer. Not that she needed to be told to do that, as she pressed her leg into his, deepening the connection. He tasted like the cinnamon gum he’d been chewing: sweet and spicy. His lips, soft but in control, pressed against hers, opening just a little. How she wanted to taste him more. How she wanted… more. He pulled away first, and when her eyes fluttered open, she found herself staring into his big brown eyes, losing herself there for a minute. Her heart thudded hard in her chest. It was a teasing kind of kiss, one that promised more.

“Not bad, flyboy,” she murmured, her voice low. She realized her heart was thudding in her chest. He’d gotten her blood pumping. God, she missed this feeling. Missed a man’s strong touch. Missed the intimacy of lips on lips. But that little kiss had sent a white hot bolt of need through her body. Now she itched for more.

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…
