Book Tour ~ Fetching Love ~ Tamara Hoffa

Fetching Love by Tamara Hoffa

SOR Fetching Love VBT BannerGenre: Western Contemporary Romance

 

As a fourteen year old, Megan Malone thought Chad Ryan hung the moon, but the boy of her dreams was already a man. Chad left town for seven years. Now he’s back. He’s the new veterinarian in town and he’s working for her dad, in the Animal clinic that she manages. Never mate a dog from your own kennel, so the saying goes, but…

Chad Ryan is a dog. The skinny little girl who used to trail after him like a lost puppy, is now a beautiful woman. He has no business even noticing. On the heels of a failed relationship, and the beginning of his career, there is no time for love in his life.

A matchmaking mom and dad, a boisterous yellow lab and fate have different plans. When it’s dropped in their path, no dog can resist Fetching Love.

 

SORM excerptThe back door swung open and Chase sauntered in. “Hi, Ma. It smells great in here.” He snatched a slice of tomato from the board in front of her and she slapped at his hand. “Get out of that, you. The tomatoes are for the sauce.”

“You’re making sauce and Sam and I didn’t get an invite for dinner?” He gave her his best puppy dog face.

“We’re having Megan and Doc over for dinner,” Chad interjected before his mother could speak.

“I’m making plenty. I’ll send some home with you and you can make my Samantha some nice spaghetti for dinner.”

Chase looked crestfallen. “Aww, come on Ma. You know I hate to cook.”

“Yes, I know, but Sam has been working too hard and she is big as a house. It’s the least you can do for her. All you have to do is boil up some noodles.”

“I’m telling her you said she was big as a house,” he teased.

Wiping her hands on her apron she placed her hands on her hips and gave her middle son the stare. Chad turned back to his tomatoes so he didn’t get caught in the crossfire. “I beg your pardon, young man. Did you just threaten your mother?”

Chad struggled to keep a straight face, laughing now would earn him a smack in the head, but it was so funny to see his itty bitty mother squaring off with her six foot plus son. Watching out of the corner of his eye he saw Chase drop his head and mutter, “No, ma’am. I was only teasing.”

Chad bit his cheek and continued to peel tomatoes.

“Shoo, you two. Get out of my kitchen. Go eat your lunch in the living room.” She took the knife from Chad’s hand and pushed him toward the door.

He grabbed the bag of food from the table. “Grab us a couple beers, Chase,” he tossed over his shoulder as he exited the room.

They settled themselves on the sofa and Chad pulled the sandwiches and chips from the bag, along with some napkins. “I got you roast beef. That okay?”

“It’s great. So, how’s the new job going?”

They made small talk while they ate. Catching up on the goings on of the ranch and local gossip. When they had finished their sandwiches Chase sat back on the couch, took a long sip of his beer and leveled his gaze on Chad. “Okay, spill. I can tell you have something on your mind, so quit pussy footing around and let me have it.”

“I never could get away with anything around here. I swear, between you, Chance and Ma, a man doesn’t stand a chance.”

“Quit stalling.”

“Okay, okay. Well, you remember Doc’s daughter, Megan?”

“How could I forget? That poor girl had such a crush on you. She followed you around like a little puppy. Oh, no. She’s not still trailing after you, is she?”

“I wish,” Chad muttered.

Chase stuck a finger in his ear and wiggled it. “Did I just hear you right? You want little Megs following you around?”

“Obviously you haven’t seen little Megs in a while. She’s not so little anymore. In fact, she’s a stone fox.”

“Seriously? So, what’s the problem?”

“I don’t know what to do. She runs the All About Animals office now, we work together. I know I shouldn’t pursue her, but I can’t get her out of my mind.”

“Is she still stuck on you?”

“I really don’t know. She always acts very professionally, but every once in a while I think I catch her watching me.”

“So, ask her out. The worst she can do is say ‘no’”

“No, that’s not the worst she could do. We work together. What if it doesn’t work out?”

“What if it does? Are you really such a chicken shit that you’re willing to ignore your feelings for this girl because of a maybe?”

“I don’t know. Julie really—”

Chase interrupted. “Screw Julie.”

“Been there. Done that. Got the broken heart to prove it.”

BBBcoverParker’s Passion Tryst Island, Book 6

by Sabrina York

 

Book Info:

Scarred by a long-ago crime of passion, Parker Rieth has dedicated himself to a cold, emotionless existence as a divorce lawyer. He is utterly unprepared for the effect Kaitlin Stringer has on his heart, mind and soul. Beautiful, ethereal and irresistible, she touches him in a way no other woman has. Though he has vowed to avoid her, he is drawn toward her.

 

Psychic healer Kaitlin is just what Parker needs to reconcile his past, to finally set old ghosts to rest, and to claim his destiny. Can he find the courage to step into Kaitlin’s embrace? Does she have what it takes to awaken his sleeping passion?

 

Parker’s Passion – Excerpt

There had been lust, these past few weeks, but nothing like this lust. It rose within him and roared, like a savage beast. His cock surged. His pulse pounded. The urge to shove her back against the wall, rub against her, snarled in his belly. It horrified him.

A woman like Kaitlin deserved gentility. A tender touch. Not a man so stretched on the rack of desire that he would dry hump her on her porch after a date.

He pulled away, released her. Sucked in a breath. Raked his fingers through his hair. “Kaitlin…”

She smiled. A beatific smile. It sent shudders of remorse through him.

How could he? How could he have such base urges for an angel like—

“Would you like to come inside?” Her voice was soft and danced away on the cool night breeze, but he heard it. Hell yeah, he heard it. Every cell in his body hummed.

“Y-yes.”

She unlocked the door and took his hand, pulling him inside. He stared at her foyer, as though he’d never seen a foyer before. It was done in art deco. A runner led down the hall to the kitchen. A staircase curved upstairs—

But he didn’t let himself think about upstairs.

She’d invited him inside. Maybe for a drink. Maybe for something else. He couldn’t allow himself to think about what.

She led him to the left, through an elaborately molded archway into a sitting room decorated with antiques. They sat, side by side, on the tiny couch. He folded his hands in his lap. She did the same.

After a long moment, she spoke. “I’ve been waiting for that, Parker.”

His heart lurched. “Waiting…for what?”

“For you to kiss me again.” She glanced at him shyly, through the lace of her lashes. “I’ve been wanting you to kiss me again.”

“I’ve, ah, I’ve kissed you after each date.”

Her chuckle wreathed the room, warmed it. “Not like that.” She leaned closer. “Not like this.”

And then, to his shock and delight, she threaded her fingers into his hair and pulled his head down. Shivers rippled over his body, danced on his skin, as she kissed him. It was tentative and unskilled, and in that, it delighted him. She tasted him, tenderly, testing, lapping and licking. A nibble perhaps. All the while, she stroked his scalp, soothing him, caressing his nape and shoulders.

It was beyond excellent. It was miraculous.

The pain, which was never far away, dissolved completely and he was filled with an unfamiliar joy and… What was that? Peace?

By the time she drew back, he was aching, but it was a different kind of ache. A good ache.

He stared at her, taking in her shining eyes, her damp mouth, that riot of red curls haloing her head. Something odd filled his heart. Something he had never felt before. That peace was part of it, that bone-deep comfort when he looked at her, surely. But there was more. Raging desire, coiling panic and scorching determination to have her. Somehow, all these emotions swirled together in a unified surge, filling his heart and mind and soul.

And with a shock, he realized what it was, this thing he’d never felt before.

He loved her.

He loved her.

He would have sprung from the couch and dashed from the room—so terrifying was the prospect of loving anybody—if she hadn’t entwined her fingers in his just then and said, in a matter-of-fact voice, “Shall we go upstairs?”
