Riding the edge…
Take Me, Lover, Book 1
When it comes to cars, former race driver Adam Richards knows how to maximize performance. Love? It doesn’t come with a maintenance manual, and it’s just as well. The secrets he’s hiding behind his partnership in a racing garage don’t lend themselves to lasting relationships. Now that Maggie Parker is back in town, though, he’s got a few ideas to make her purr like a finely tuned engine.
Life taught Maggie that men don’t stay. Leaving Adam before he got bored was supposed to protect her from heartbreak…only it didn’t work. If helping her sister was the only reason for coming home, she might have got away unscathed. But the story she’s been assigned to write is going to bring her within scorching distance of her old flame.
Adam is as irresistible as ever—and just as stubborn. He won’t give her a story, but his offer of a no-strings fling is one she can’t refuse. Passion pushes them to the limit, sparking Maggie’s belief that loving Adam is worth the risk.
Until she digs deeper and discovers some things just don’t add up…
Like the purr of an old Chevy big block engine, Redline Lover will get your blood pumping while creating delicious tingles under the skin.
From the minute Adam and Maggie reunite, you’ll begin the melting process. The two are like TNT and a match – harmless when apart but damned combustive when placed together. The sexual chemistry and attraction is so heady, you’ll swim in it. Of course, no story would be complete without a little angst and heartache, and you’ll get that as well. He wants her. She wants him. Six-months apart haven’t nullified their desires, yet neither can confess to their feelings. You’ll wonder where things are going, especially as you teeter-totter between them. Then, Maggie learns the truth about Adam’s racing career and makes the decision to ride the redline with the man she loves – no matter the cost.
If you’re in the mood for a short story that is sizzling hot, with characters who engage you from beginning to end, be sure to put Redline Lover on your TBR list.
