Sweet Saturday Sample: Don't Look At His Rear End

Welcome to Sweet Saturday Sample.  My excerpt today comes from Her Kind of Man.  Her Kind of Man was designated A True Gem by Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews.  You can buy the book at  or at

Is it possible she’s finally found Her Kind of Man?

Ross Williams has been in love with Kara Cochrane since they were kids so when Kara's fiancĂ© Brandon Miles cheats on her and calls off their wedding—Ross steps in to rescue the damsel in distress.

A heartbroken Kara just wants to get on with her life and hunky Ross provides her with a definite distraction—that is until she starts falling for him. Big time.

But a devastating family secret threatens to destroy everything that Kara holds dear—including her relationship with Ross.
Kara laid the kitten beside its mama, but before she could get to her feet, Ross gave her a little push and toppled her over into the hay. A second later he stretched out beside her.
“What’s your hurry?” He closed his eyes and teased Kara’s lips with his own. “Hold me.”
Kara didn’t mind if she did because Ross felt good in her arms. The fragrant, warm hay that kept her safe from prying, curious eyes gave her a feeling of security. Her arms slipped around Ross who kissed her again.
Punch-drunk from the destruction of so many hopes and dreams, kissing Ross still sent little shivers up and down Kara’s spine. Her entire body felt warm, pliant, and alive. She made no protest when Ross grabbed her bottom to pull her against him.
Ross did, though. He made a strange sound low in his throat, pulled out of her arms, and sat up.
“What’s wrong?” Kara whispered. “Hold me, Ross. I like it when you hold me.”
Ross ran a hand across his face. “I can’t, Kara. I want you too much. If I don’t stop now I won’t be able to.”
“Does it matter? We’re getting married in less than two weeks.”
Ross’s eyes blazed as his breath quickened. “If we could be sure nobody would interrupt us…. No, Neil or Bobby might walk in. Last thing I want them to see is my naked rear end.”
2 day is my mom and dad's anniversary.  They r gud parents 2 me.  Hapy anniversary Mom, and Dad.

Sounds like she's found her man! And I love it that he's level-headed enough to stop before they're found with naked rear ends! So is it your anniversary? If so, have a wonderful day!

An honest-to-goodness roll in the hay ... almost! Good thing that Ross has self-control.
