Pretty Face by Sable Hunter

Pretty Face: A Red Hot Cajun Nights Story (Dixie Dreaming Book 2)

Cody’s life is defined by two great truths. She is in love…and she has committed a great sin. Cody has been playing with fire and she’s about to get burned. Hungry for attention, she allowed a wonderful man to fall in love with her. Their only contact has been on the internet and telephone conversations. Cody put a good spin on her life by telling half-truths and sending photos of a woman with a beautiful body and a pretty face, only the woman wasn’t Cody. Scarred by abuse, she hides from prying eyes.
Cody loves Hunter enough to let him go. Full of guilt, she is prepared to disappear from his life. Hunter begs to meet her, but she refuses. But if Cody won’t come to him, Hunter will come to Cody.
Louisiana is in the midst of Mardi Gras, a time of love, laughter, and letting the good times roll. Masks are worn at Mardi Gras, and the mask Cody wears will hide more than a pretty face.

**EXCERPT**

Hunter was tempted to pick her up and stride out with her like a scene from a romantic movie. An overflow of memories threatened to consume him, shared moments of desperate desire, whispered words of love over the miles. “I thought you’d never ask.” When Sage smiled and tugged on his hand, Hunter thought he was going to break his neck getting to the elevator as fast as he wanted to go.

Together they laughed, both so full of joy and hope that they were about ready to pop. “Come here.” He pulled her into his arms as the doors closed, his lips hovering over hers. “I’m going to love you so good.”

Cody drew back, staring into his eyes, praying she wasn’t making a mistake. “You always have. Don’t you know you’ve become my life?”

Hunter followed her as she pulled back, his mouth so close to her that his warm breath caressed her skin with every word. “Why do you think I’m here? Why do you think I came to find you?” He moved his head, brushing his lips back and forth over hers with careful deliberation. “Fantasies of teasing you, making you whimper as I give you pleasure have haunted me for years. I want you, Sage. I want to make you mine. I want to worship you with my body the way I’ve dreamed of doing for so long.”

Her nipples were so erect, the pressure of them scraping against the lace of her bra made her gasp. “Did we push the button?”

“No!” He laughed. “What floor?”

“Six.” As the lift began to move, Hunter slammed his lips against her and her heart pounded as he took her bottom lip between his teeth and sucked on it. Cody wanted to pinch herself, this perfect man wanted her. She let her eyelids flutter close and she gave herself over to the wonder of his kiss. He was so much more potent than she’d ever thought possible. Her pulse escalated, her fingertips dug into his shoulders as she surrendered.

Ding!

“Finally.” This time he didn’t deny his impulse, he placed a hand beneath her knees and one behind her back and lifted her. “You belong to me, Sage Donovan, and I’m about to prove it.”

“Room six-eleven.” She held up the key. His eyes were hooded and dark with desire.

“Put it in.” He instructed.

“Isn’t that my line?” She quipped and Hunter’s eyes widened and Cody giggled.

The sound was so sweet and so familiar. He loved it. When the lock clicked, he used his foot to push it open. Once inside, he sat Sage down, his eyes never leaving her face. “Let’s take this off.”

He reached for her mask and she panicked. “No, no,” she backed away. “I need to leave it on. Please.”

“Why?” Hunter was at a loss. He didn’t understand.

“I just have to.” She felt him pulling away. Cody couldn’t let it happen, not since they’d come this for. Remembering Nana’s words, remembering her power, she pushed on Hunter’s chest until he yielded and came to rest against the door. “I’ll remove it on the third night. I just need this time to be more than I am.”

Hunter allowed her to hold him still, but he wouldn’t allow her to build unnecessary barriers. “I don’t want you to be more than you are. I just want you. I always have.”

“Hush, let me love you.” She tangled her fingers in his hair and pulled his head down to meet her mouth. Sage’s kiss sent him a message. She was giving of herself and asking him to want her. Her lips slid over his, her tongue requesting entrance and when he responded by kissing her back, opening his mouth to accept her invasion, she ate at his mouth with a hunger that sent his senses reeling.

When she withdrew to catch her breath, he followed, kissing her again. “I’ll let you have your way about the mask, but you’re gonna owe me.”

“I’ll pay gladly,” she said between nips at his neck as she began working on his clothes, undoing his tie, unfastening the buttons on his shirt.

EXCERPT

Hope didn’t see him for long, though she’d gotten an eyeful. Ari was thick with muscles, not an ounce of fat. Oh my god, everywhere, and she did mean everywhere! She could hardly look away. Hope couldn’t help but squeal when he picked her up. Her legs against his arms and chest sent a shiver through her. His heat made Hope feel like she was burning up. She shuddered. “Put me down. I’m not going in the lake.” “Oh yes you are. Since you won’t undress and your clothes need it anyway, in you go.” With that, Hope flew through the air, landing with a splash in the lake. She sputtered and came up, wheeling her arms to get above water. “You jerk!” Oh, she saw red. “How dare you!” Ari stood in the water to his ankles laughing. He had tossed her a good six feet away and let her sink like a stone. He didn’t even know if she could swim! “What if I couldn’t swim, huh? What would you do then?” Hope was so mad she splashed him. Ari just laughed. She heard Crag snickering somewhere behind her. She turned and splashed at him too. “I would have saved you. If you’d quit splashing and stand up, you’ll see you could stand.” Ari frowned suddenly. “Oh no. You can’t stand with your leg.” He started toward her and Hope pushed deeper into the water. “Leave me be.”

AUTHOR BIO

Beverly decided she had nothing to lose and since she’d always wanted to be an author sent it in and agonized for months waiting to hear back. Contract in hand she has never looked back.

Beverly has been obsessed with dragons and romance since she was a young girl, collecting dragon books and reading everything she could find on them even down to the care of real life dragons. She’s always been slightly panicked that the world as we know it will end, so has prepped for it, haunting survivalist pages and prepper projects she felt she needed in the event SHTF.

An avid fan of all romance, Beverly’s goal is to share her love of the written word and write the hot and erotic romances that she enjoys. She writes what she loves to read and it was only a matter of time before her obsessions crept into her writing for her to share. She hopes you enjoy her tales as much as she loves writing them.

A Navy Veteran, Beverly has traveled around the world and the United States enabling her to bring her settings to life, meeting and marrying her husband of twenty five years along the way for her own romance.

The powerful story no one saw coming.

His name is Luke. But nobody knows that. He was an iconic musician before he gave up music. But nobody knows that either. They also don’t know he’s twenty-seven, that he used to have an infectious laugh, and that he’s way too young to be widowed. They certainly don’t know the rest of his tragic story. All they know is that he comes into their café at the same time every morning and stares at the same chair at the same table. They know he’s strange. They know he interrupts their breakfast with a cold blast of air as he hovers in the doorway, mustering the courage to confront a piece of furniture.

No one asks why. No one cares. He’s fine with that. He’s done with life. This isn’t even his story anymore. It’s actually Callie’s, the young writer who sat in his chair one day.

This novel is a work of fiction and intended for mature readers. Events and persons depicted are of a fictional nature and use language, make choices, and face situations inappropriate for younger readers. Please note this book also addresses the issues of depression and suicide in a compassionate, realistic manner. This book can be read as a standalone, but the story continues in Tracing Holland.

They might call me Sir Loin of Beef, but when I see Kaitlyn for the first time, stick a fork in me, I’m done.

But I won’t claim her alone. Jed Cassidy and I share everything, and that includes her. If the sweet little librarian isn’t ready to be wrangled by two rodeo champs, we’ll just have to break her in nice and slow. She’s ours. We will win her over—body and soul—and when we do? Well, let’s just say we’ll give her a hard ride…and it’ll last a hell of a lot longer than eight seconds.

Kaitlyn Leary takes one look at the sexy cowboys and can’t remember the last time she was so eager for a double helping of… big beef. But giving in to desire might ruin everything. Because the truth is that this small town librarian isn’t all she seems. Landon Duke and Jed might be talking about a future of picket fences and making babies, but the past could destroy it all. Still…two cowboys?

Who could resist?

Remember: With a Vanessa Vale book, one cowboy is never enough. In this smokin’ hot series, each heroine gets an extra helping (or two) of Grade-A Beefcake.

Breaking a vow is sometimes harder than keeping one.

But that’s what I did…the second I let my best friend’s brother into my bed.

Seven years ago, I broke every girl code in the Rule Book by falling for Brett Jackson.

Tall. Tattooed. And totally off-limits.

Until last week. When I found myself abandoned in a new city, with no one to turn to…but him.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: This is a full-length, stand alone, best friend’s brother/second chance romance with humor, suspense and heat. Enjoy!

Damn her and that red dress.

Now all I think about is her. All I fantasize about is her—her smile, her laugh, her long legs wrapped around my waist.

My dilemma, you ask? She doesn’t care that I’m a billionaire. And why should she? It means nothing, tells her nothing about who I am.

Memphis had waited his entire immortal life for his mate. The one woman he could love and cherish, unrestrained by time or regulation. What he got, however, was a mate who did not wish for love. She scorned the thought of it, burning his hopes with her cold disdain for all that life had handed her. Faith Dunaway wished only for death.

For Faith, being taken away to the Breed was not a rescue mission. She had simply been moved from one prison to another. After years of torture and abuse, there was nothing left of her; She was too broken to be saved. She didn’t care about the war around her, didn’t want to know what the Hunters’ experiments had truly done to her- And above all else, she refused to belong to another man.
The greatest challenge Memphis would ever face, would be to keep his faith, and convince his mate to love not only him, but more importantly, to love herself.

This is the THIRD book in an ongoing series.

*Excerpt***

“Come on; let’s take care of the paperwork. If you’ll let me, I’ll bring everyone over after I finish for the day. I have pet carriers.” He made the suggestion casually, but tensed up, waiting on the verdict. Cooper was silent for a moment. She looked at him closely, as if trying to read his mind . “That’s very nice of you, but I can’t put you to that much trouble. I don’t mind making two trips.” “It won’t be any trouble, and it’s certainly not out of my way. We live right next to one another. Besides, I have that package I need to deliver.” This time she heard him. “Package? What package?” He couldn’t help it. He grinned. “Yeah, I told you earlier that UPS delivered a package of yours to my house by mistake.” Blood rushed to her face. “You have my, uh, special delivery?” “’Deed I do.” He looked like the cat that ate the canary. “Sorry about that. I hope it didn’t embarrass you. I tell you what, to make up for any inconvenience, when you bring my package and the animals, I’ll trade you a home cooked meal.” “Sounds great. I’ll bring a bottle of wine.” Maybe, this would be easier than he thought. An answer to a prayer. Oh, no. Cooper stopped. She looked at Ky, closely . “A bottle of wine?” “You don’t drink?” he asked. Why was she looking at him like that? He would swear she looked wistful for a moment. Taking a step back, she looked at the ground. “I wasn’t assuming you would want to come and sit down with me to eat, Ky. My intention was to cook you a meal, pack it in into to-go boxes, and send it home with you. As a thank you.” Ky was adamant. “If you’re not busy, I would like to have dinner with you, Cooper.” “That’s very nice of you. An honor, really. But like I told you yesterday, I don’t socialize very much.” “I don’t want to take my food home in a doggie bag , Cooper. I want to sit down and eat with you and talk, get to know you. I would like to call on you, sweetheart.” “Why?” So, she wanted to know why. Ky chuckled. So, he would tell her. “Why? Because, you are the most beautiful woman I have ever seen . You are nice, and you like animals. We have things in common. Mainly, it’s because I’m very attracted to you, love.” “You need glasses.” The look on her face was still skeptical, but at least she was smiling.

From Me to You ~ Are you in Milwaukee?

If you’re hanging in Milwaukee stop by the Hyatt on Killborn and grab some books! There is a book signing going on at 4:30 pm in the Atrium. Not sure how big it will be, but it has been fun so far!

I have only 3 books with me (multiple copies, though!)

 

Hope to see you there! I’ve got to run and head to more classes! Have a wonderful Saturday.
