Dear Captor,You’ve stolen me.

You’ve spilled my blood.

You’ve brought me pain.

But what you’re yet to realize… I’m a fighter.

I’ve been broken before.

I’ve even at one point lost the will to live.

So now you know… this information I gift to you.

I’m ready for you, so do your worst.

Sincerely,

Elenore

I hate cliffhangers, really I do! So in case anybody isn’t clear on this, I HATE cliffhangers. If you feel the same way, you may not like this book very much because boy, talk about a doozy of a cliffy as I like to call them. I was so totally mad. I had really gotten into this, and by the time the ending showed up, not only was I in utter disbelief about what happened, but…CLIFFHANGER!

I usually give a brief synopsis of what the book is about, particularly its beginnings, but I don’t want to give too much away here. This is a three-part series, and all of the books are about a month apart. We have a serial killer who makes his victims write letters, and in book one, Dear Captor, our heroine Elinore is taken.

There is a police detective, Roman, and a few others in the cast of characters. One of them just may be the captor, but his identity is never divulged. (I have an idea of who it is.) So now, after getting upset at the ending, it’s a long wait until October 18th when book 2 is released. *sigh*

Excerpt

 

Prologue
What’s in a
name?
Usually,
parents name their children with a special kind of love in their hearts. Not
mine though. They didn’t want me, or at least, that’s what they kept telling
me. They only ever wanted to inflict pain. I was nobody until the woman next
door gave me the lovely name Elenore. She cared for me when my own parents
didn’t or wouldn’t.
Every
single day I wished to be taken away from what I endured. Anywhere would have
been good. I would have sold my soul to the devil himself back then, and I’d
willingly do it now. Give my living essence to breathe, to live on. My entire
childhood was a survival story, and now I have another.
So much
blood. Everywhere I look, there are dark pools of solidified blood stuck to the
walls, the floor—my entire cell is covered. The girls who came before me are no
more. Their stories are over. It was gruesome, the stuff of your nightmares.
Not me,
though—he kept me.
One letter
changed my destiny of certain death. It was never in me to give up easily. I’ve
always been a fighter. He never saw me coming, and he never knew my strength.
He was not what I expected either.
His
strength.
His
calmness.
Or his
kindness.
He was my
captor . . .

Tripped Out (A Blacktop Cowboys Novella) by Lorelei James

 

 

From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Lorelei James, comes TRIPPED OUT, a new novella in her Blacktop Cowboys Series, brought to you by 1,001 Dark Nights! Be sure to grab your copy today!

 

 

About TRIPPED OUT:

Where there’s smoke…

Stirling Gradsky abandoned the corporate rat race for a more laidback lifestyle. So it’s ironic she’s stuck working with a hard-bodied, know-it-all scientist who treats her like a stoner instead of a stone cold business woman capable of running a large scale cannabis operation. Dr. Hot and Tattooed with the big…brain needs to stop sampling their product; he’s under the half-baked idea that he’s the boss.

Dr. Liam Argent’s doctorate isn’t in chemistry, but from the moment he meets his sexy new coworker, there’s enough heat between them to short out all the lights in the grow house. First item on his agenda? Clearing up the sassy, blunt blonde’s hazy notion that she’s in charge.

Sparks fly as their attraction blazes. But can they weed out their differences without getting burned?

KG Logo

Ok, this is most definitely not the usual romance for me, maybe not for a lot of people. The Blacktop Cowboys series is pretty great, as is Lorelei James. So, I was a little surprised at the theme of this one. Granted, I’ll admit here and now that I haven’t been able to read the whole series, which really stinks on my part. I’m pretty sure this book may stir up some controversy, as the use of legal cannabis does.

Stirling Gradsky owns half of a legal cannabis operation with her lawyer brother Mason, she constantly butts heads with hot, brainy, and tattooed Dr Liam Argent, a cannabis rock star who creates strains of medical marijuana. Stirling is tired of working 14 hour days and not getting what she originally set out for. When her brother angers her, Liam suggests she take out her anger by beating on a bag at his house. She takes him up on it. The sparks fly…after they get high and talk. The two go from adversaries to lovers, but both Liam and Macon have hid things from her.

I loved both Liam and Stirling, though I did think maybe they would have gotten together a whole lot quicker if they hadn’t been getting high and passing out. The one issue this book brings up for me is the high use of prescription cannabis use by people who don’t need it. It’s far too easy to pay for a prescription card with a ridiculous diagnosis that for most, doesn’t exist. For example, migraines when they don’t have them. Stress, ect. Cancer, chronic intractable pain, glaucoma, those I get. I actually know someone who just paid someone $300 to get him his card for a complaint of headaches, (he doesn’t have them) and now he goes and gets all kinds of medical cannabis.

All of that aside, I loved the book, loved the writing, and as usual, loved the story, because Lorelei just simply rocks!

Excerpt

Cocky asshat. “Both.” She smiled. “From the moment you strolled in here, you’ve acted uptight and holier-than-thou. It reminded me of me a few years ago and I hated the reminder. Then you were stubborn about cooperating with me—”

“Or you refused to do things my way, as I saw it,” he interjected, “but go on.”

“And I started pranking you, expecting you’d ignore it. But you embraced it. You even surpassed me on a few occasions. So…” Shut up, Stirling. You’ve already said too much.

“So…?” he prompted.

“I was surprised you gave as good as you got.”

His gaze encompassed her face before he trained his focus entirely on her lips.

“What?”

“You have no idea how much I want to prove how good I can give it to you.”

Boom. It was as if a thunderclap cleared the air between them, leaving energy crackling in the space, buzzing and ready for lightning to strike at any moment.

“Stirling.”

That voice. Pure sex. Her mind screamed at her to retreat, but her body, lulled by the warmth of his muscular leg pressing into hers, refused to budge. “But…you’ve always acted like I’m beneath you.”

“I’ve always wanted you beneath me.” He angled his head until his mouth touched the spot below her ear.

She didn’t want to break the spell, but she trembled when his lips journeyed down the side of her neck. “I didn’t think you were attracted to me,” she said on a near whisper.

“And I didn’t think you were an idiot, Miss Gradsky.”

Stirling froze.

Then Liam was nose to nose with her, his eyes fierce behind his glasses. “You are a beautiful woman. Stunningly beautiful when you smile, cunningly beautiful when you’ve got that devious look in your eyes. You’re intelligent and clever, and I’d be a fool not to be attracted to you.”

“And you, Dr. Liam Argent, are no fool,” she whispered.

“Exactly.” He smiled. “So the question is… What do we do about it?”

Take a step back?

Or take a leap of faith?

A Very Private Performance by Ashe Barker

performance

One foolish mistake has cost her dearly—it will take a brave decision to put her back in pole position.

For the avoidance of doubt, please be informed that you are a pair of arrogant, self-serving sh*ts. Further, you are bigoted, self-righteous phonies.

Not exactly the best way to address the directors of the law firm if I want to hang on to my job, but I’ve had it up to here with James and Daniel Morgan. If they object so strongly to what I do in my spare time they shouldn’t snoop into my Facebook account. Not that any of this self-righteous indignation is going to help me. I’ve been fired.

So what are they thinking now? First James and Daniel have me dismissed, then they turn up as though nothing is wrong while I’m clearing out my desk and invite me out to lunch? What are they up to? And why am I even going with them?

They may be handsome as sin, the pair of them, and now that they know I’m a pole dancer in my spare time they seem to think I’ll sleep with them to keep my job.

Not that the idea doesn’t have its appeal, but they’re wrong. I have my standards too…and not the double standards these two seem to live by.

If I decide to give James and Daniel Morgan a very private performance it will be on my terms, not theirs.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of double penetration.

Publisher’s Note: This book has previously been released as part of the Three’s A Charm anthology with Totally Bound Publishing.

KG Logo

This was a fun and sexy little short from Ashe Barker, whom I’ve read before. I was intrigued by the book’s blurb, and who can resist a menage’? The plot is simple, we have law clerk Emily Santori who is not only working her job at Morgan Law, but she also works as a bartender at Hard Limits, a bar where she also pole danced.

The head of human resources has seen a video that Emily posted on her private Facebook page. She calls her into the office and summarily fires her. Emily is fuming, she has seen the big bosses, James and Daniel Morgan there on several occasions. She finds it rather hypocritical of them to fire her for something she does in her private time and shoots off a nasty e-mail telling them just what she thinks.Then, they read the email and decide to ask her out to lunch. They have a proposition for her.

I’ll let you get the book and find out what happens from here, needless to say, it was enjoyable, if not a bit short.But it was wonderfully well written with spicy, steamy sex scenes.

About the Uninhibited! Series

Celebrity archaeologist Cari Dunn is so over the Georgia heat, the red tape at her dig site, and the threatening messages left on her motel door. She just wants to dig, and the network just wants to keep her safe—with a bodyguard. She can’t complain. Jasper Benjamin radiates raw masculinity that penetrates her to the core and ignites passion she’s never felt. Too bad for him, she’s not going to be easy to handle.

Lusting after the bodyguard shouldn’t be so tempting, especially when her life is on the line.

KG Logo

Unbound by Lauren Hawkeye is the second novella in the Uninhibited series. It’s rather short, so be prepared for that when you read. You’ll also want to be sure to have read part one, Untamed prior to reading Unbound, as this picks up right where Untamed left off.

Cari Dunn is on site at a dig for her TV show, and it’s obvious someone doesn’t want her there. What started as pranks seem to be escalating, and the show isn’t taking any chances, so Cari has a super, sexy bodyguard, Jasper. Jasper and Cari have discovered that they really ‘Dig’ each other. (Okay, bad pun, I know.) When we last left our steamy couple, they had not only had a 3-way dance with another super-hottie named Jackson whose dance would have gotten them kicked off DWTS for sure! Jasper was so turned on watching Cari with Jackson, he took her back to the room and they started their own type of dance.

Unfortunately, this gets interrupted with a bit of a brick through the window action. This is where we start. So…Our muscle-bound hero takes Cari to his room so he can investigate the matter, but Cari just won’t stay put. Hmmm…How can he make her stay? I’m not telling, but imagine the sizzle when a drop of water hits a hot iron. Yep, that hot! Then our intrepid hero decides to explain all to Cari about why he’s single. It seems he has a kink that most women find a bit difficult to live with full-time. Curious? It’s in here, and it’s oh-so yummy! Of course, the cliffy sets us up for the third and final installation of the series, Undone. Luckily, you’ll only have a week to wait for it!

 

Get a Sneak Peek at UNTAMED, Uninhibited! #1:

“You know what Krav Maga is, and you let me spar with my imaginary friend for the last hour?” I let myself go limp, become dead weight, expecting the move to surprise him enough to drop me.

It did not. Instead he rolled with me until his back was against the parched grass, and I was seated astride him. I should have been able to get free since I was on top, but I couldn’t rid myself of his steely grip on my arms, and I knew he’d chosen that position deliberately, to prove his point.

Damn it. This was not the result I wanted—proof that I did, in fact, need him.

“I get it. You’re stronger than me. Now let me up.” Temper-tears stung the back of my throat. Convincing my stepfather that I was going to go to university, convincing my colleagues that I wouldn’t have a nervous breakdown just because some idiot spray painted my door—why did I always have to fight just to live my life the way I wanted?

Instead of gloating and letting me up, my newly vindicated bodyguard tugged me down so that I lay at on top of him. I surprised myself by wanting, suddenly, to bury my face in his T-shirt and just let go for a moment, rather than fight this new reality—that I might actually be in danger.

“I’m not trying to prove that I’m stronger than you. I don’t have to. It’s obvious.” The urge to snuggle passed as I cranked my head around with a glare.

Way to make me feel worse, asshole.

Krav maga is a discipline, and the first rule is to avoid confrontation. You know this. So why the hell are you out here, alone, after dusk?” His words were tinted with frustration, the first hint of emotion he’d shown, and I was surprised enough to stop tugging at his grip. When I did, he let go, and I pushed myself up on his massive chest but didn’t roll off.

“You’re serious.” I waited for the punchline, but it didn’t come. Instead, he fixed me with a stare from those pale eyes, and a shiver skittered down my spine. “You don’t actually think someone is out to get me, do you? It’s a prank, right?”

“Let’s look at it this way.” Propping himself up on an elbow brought that rock-solid stomach of his in contact with my hip. I thought he would push me away, but he didn’t, seeming completely unaffected by the closeness of our bodies.

That stung, because I sure as hell wasn’t. This close, I could feel the warmth of his skin, smell a hint of soap, and it invaded my senses slowly, lazily, like honey melting on a summer day.

“You’re an archaeologist. You search for physical proof of things before you build theories on top of that evidence. Would that be an accurate explanation?”

“Yes.” Narrowing my eyes, I tried to drag my attention from the scent of his skin to what he was saying. My mouth was dry, and the space between my legs that pressed into the cradle between his hip was warm and starting to ache.

He gave no indication that our position was getting him all hot and bothered, too. None. How was I the only one feeling this?

“You have your physical proof. Harassment in the form of vandalism, and the more direct threat with the poster mailed to Margot.” With the sort of ab crunch I couldn’t do even on my best day, he hauled himself into a sitting position, still without pushing me off his lap. “Sure, it could be that

someone just wants to mess with your head. But what if it’s more? Wouldn’t you rather be prepared?”

“I like being prepared.” I ran my tongue over my lips and swallowed. Holy mixed messages. His words, his demeanor—he was still fully in G.I. Joe mode, but still, he hadn’t pushed me away.

“So how is this going to work? You just follow me around all the time?” A thought occurred to me. “You’re not expecting to stay in the same room, are you?”

Looking at him, though, I felt that same strange pull that I had in Margot’s suite. I might not actually mind having him that close.

What was wrong with me?

Margot and the network had been right—I was absolutely in danger. But the threat?

It was him.

About Lauren Hawkeye

Lauren Hawkeye/ Lauren Jameson never imagined that she’d wind up telling stories for a living… though when she looks back, it’s easy to see that she’s the only one who is surprised. Always “the kid who read all the time”, Lauren made up stories about her favorite characters once she’d finished a book… and once spent an entire year narrating her own life internally. No, really. But where she was just plain odd before publication, now she can at least claim to have an artistic temperament.

Lauren lives in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada with her husband, toddler, pit bull and idiot cat, though they do not live in an igloo, nor do they drive a dogsled. In her nonexistent spare time Lauren can be found knitting (her husband claims that her snobby yarn collection is exorbitant), reading anything she can get her hands on, or sweating her way through spin class. She loves to hear from her readers!

Mountain of Evil: Trident Security Omega Team: Prequel

evil2

evil

Blurb:

Between new clients and governmental contracts, Trident Security has grown in leaps and bounds. To accommodate the increased caseload, they’ve added a second team to their Tampa headquarters. After hiring seven “best of the best” from military and law enforcement backgrounds, they’ve put together a cracker-jack group of six men and one woman. But before they are turned out to handle their own missions, they must first prove they are a cohesive and capable unit.

Dropped into the Rocky Mountains, the Omega team has minimal supplies and two days to make it back to civilization. But what they find in the wilderness turns a training op into a real one. Will they all make it back alive?

***This novella is a bridge between the original Trident Security (TS) Series and the spin off series, Trident Security Omega Team. While it is not necessary to read the original TS series or this prequel before the Omega Team series, it will give the reader more insight and background of the members of Trident Security.

evil3

cropped-reviewfbknotty1.jpg

Drum roll please…Samantha A Cole has unveiled a new spin-off series to the Trident Security series. This totally has me excited because that means that there are more chances for hot alpha, dominant men and suspenseful stories that I’ve come to know and love. Samantha A Cole has become one of my very favorite authors and is an auto-buy for me.

This new series is about the Trident Omega team which is composed of 6 men and 1 woman. Their boss, Ian comes along as well as wife Angie, for their final training exercise in this novella. We also have Mallory Hart. She’s hiking up in the mountains and taking photos. She’s about to leave when she runs into big trouble.

The Omega team, led by Cade “Shades” Forester and Tristan “Duracell” McCabe are dropped off in the middle of the wilderness for 2 days. They have to make their way back to the extraction point with minimal supplies. But their training exercise turns into a dangerous rescue mission. Will they rescue Mallory before the bad guys hurt her?

Despite the fact this was a prequel, it was chock full of suspense, and even though we don’t get a romance out of this one, we do get some private sexy time with Ian and Angie. I loved it! And Cowboy’s (Logan) book is next. He’ll need a strong, compassionate woman to help him with his PTSD and just love him while submitting. (I’ll do it!!)

This looks to be an awesome series!

About Private Reserve:

Olivia was the best thing that ever happened to me. But she’s a good girl, and I have a side that is far too dark for a minister’s daughter. When she started talking about plans after graduation, the only thing I could do was run back to Italy—to protect her from me. But she’s back in my life, and I need a wife before I can take full ownership of our failing vineyard and hotel. Only problem is, I want her again. No way can I put my hands on her. One kiss, one taste, could unleash the side of me that would only scare her.

 

If she discovers my dark side, I don’t know if she’ll flee back to the states, or surrender to me. What she doesn’t know is she already owns me, and if she leaves, I’ll never be the same.

reviewfbknotty1

I have always been a big fan of Ms. Fox’s, so I jumped on the chance to read and review this novella. I most certainly am glad I did. Despite the fact that it was a short book, it was a super, sexy story.

Olivia Frasier is at a winery in Tuscany, sent by one of her friends by a dossier. 2 years prior, her and her friends decided that on the month of their 25th birthdays, someone would pull their name and make up a dossier and send them on a destination adventure and not come home until they’ve had epic sex. Olivia is still in a funk over her ex who broke her heart by leaving her 2 years ago. But fate intervenes when she finds out the soon to be owner of the estate is none other than Gio himself. And he’s got a sexy best friend who he’s in love with.

This short is so hot the scenes sizzle right off the pages. Gio is a steamy, dominant, alpha who wants Olivia and his best friend. You’ll certainly need a bucket of ice for this one!

Three

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas … or does it?

Dominant Mitch Sawyer has been lusting after submissive Tori Frejya since she first stepped into the private BDSM club he owns with his cousins.

reviewfbknotty1

Option Number Three is a Trident Security Novella, numbered 7.5. We visit Master Mitch is this one, who is the cousin to BDSM club owners Ian and Devon. Mitch is the manager and part-owner of Dominion.

One evening, sub Tori comes into his office to ask him a favor. She wants him to come to Vegas to be a date/companion to a friend who is an abused subbie. It would also give her protection from her ex-master.. Mitch has had a thing for Tori for a long while, but she was snapped up by switch and bisexual, Tyler, who is now her  Master.

Once in Vegas, after the wedding, all three get together for a game of poker. and after Ty suggests a threesome with Tori, Mitch finds out that Ty is attracted to him as well. The next day, Mitch is nowhere to be found. Will he come to his senses and admit he cares for them both? And what will everyone do with a serial killer on the loose?

This was a hot but short novella, and of course high on the page-turning, I can’t put it down factor. Though I felt Tori got short changed in this book and given that Mitch had been wanting her for so long, we see much more of the relationship between him and Ty. And though Ty is a switch, it feels like as soon as Mitch enters the picture, he reverts to being a sub and forgets about being Tori’s dom. Otherwise, it was a great read!

Option Number Three gets 4 Kinkalicious Stars

Blurb:

A new beginning…

Fleeing from a relationship gone horribly wrong, Jocelyn Frazier makes the choice to start a new life. If only her car had gotten the memo. Stranded in the parking lot of what seemed to be a night club, she walks into a world she never knew existed. A new job with room and board are the answer to her prayers, but can she really outrun the ghosts of her past or will they come back to claim her?

Broken trust…

Master Caine has just come out of a five-year Master/sub arrangement after a bitter breakup. He spies the new barmaid instantly, dismissing her as just another pretty face. When circumstances put them in close proximity, his resolve to stay at a distance is put to the test. He finds himself enamored by the curvaceous blonde. Soon the teacher becomes the student and he learns that the gift of trust might just be the greatest surrender of all.

reviewfbknotty1

Surrender by Erzabet Bishop is a novella in the Crave series. For those of you who haven’t read Crave, (Including me, a big mistake shortly to be rectified, I assure you,) Crave is a BDSM club owned by Master Gage. Who now is in a successful triad relationship.

Jocelyn Frazier’s car dies while she’s on the run from an abusive relationship. She also has a blind chihuahua, Mr Inky that she’s brought with her. She’s lucky enough to have landed outside of Crave, where she’s taken in, and given room, board, and a job.

She also catches the eye of fetish photographer Master Caine, whose new book will have to be reshot thanks to the cheating submissive who modeled for him in the first place. But will Jocelyn warm up to a lifestyle involving impact play after years of abuse? Her stay is only supposed to be temporary, what happens when two damaged souls get together? And just how much of a threat is her past?

My only honest to goodness issue is that this was so short and that I would have loved to see more of Caine and Jocelyn’s story. And Roxy was a total hoot! I’d love to read her story as well.

Erzabet turns this group into a loving, kinky family who takes care of each other, and really, who wouldn’t want to be a part of her world? Sign me up! I want more!

This is a Wicked, Wonderful, 5 Star Not To Be Missed Novella!

Out Now—Unconventional by Lucy Felthouse (@cw1985) #bdsm #spanking #romance

Blurb:

Penny was caught out in the wrong place, at the wrong time. As a recently graduated law student, the brush with the law could put an end to her career before it’s even begun. But thanks to her lawyer daddy’s contacts, she’s been given a second chance. A chance to redeem herself and make her stupid behavior go away.

Which is how she ends up working in a soup kitchen, preparing and serving meals to those who are having a rough time of it. She’s not keen on the idea, and when she meets Maddox, the guy in charge, she’s even less keen. A tall, skinny, mad-haired, tattooed guy, Maddox is the sort of person Penny would normally cross the road to avoid. But once she gets to know him, she starts to see things differently. He’s had a checkered past himself, and has now put it behind him and enjoys a glittering, prosperous career as a top chef.

Maddox may have unconventional looks, but Penny quickly grows to like him, and, much to her surprise, finds herself attracted to him. He’s a lot older than her, and their lives are at completely different stages, but in spite of this, there’s an undeniable connection between them.

When Maddox makes Penny an unconventional offer, will she have the courage to take him up on it? And if she does, where will it lead?

reviewfbknotty1

Unconventional is a novella that originally appeared in the Totally Bound Anthology, His Domain. (Which was a GREAT book by the way!) The title has a few meanings in this story from the couple itself, to the relationship, and some other tidbits.

Penny Anderson finds herself doing community service, and she does it at a soup kitchen. Once there, she meets chef Maddox Black. He’s tall, skinny, tatted up and has wild black hair, and not Penny’s usual sort.

The two of them end up chatting over tea and find out that though they are very different from each other, they have something very much in common. I positively loved this story and thought Maddox was great! He certainly knew his way around kitchen utensils. My only complaint is that I wish it was longer.

Excerpt:

From the very second I laid eyes on him, it was clear he was unconventional. If I’m being truthful, I thought he looked like a complete nutter—someone I’d probably cross the road to avoid. Even in the daytime. He was tall and skinny, with a shock of black hair—still apparent under his hairnet—and pale skin. Kind of like Edward Scissorhands. Only—mercifully—without the scissors for hands part. A vine-looking tattoo began at his left wrist, worked its way up his arm, then snaked beneath the sleeve of his T-shirt…to who knew where?

Oddly, even though I mentally kicked myself for thinking it, I found myself wanting to find out. Did it stop at his upper arm, his shoulder? Did it continue over his back, his chest, twine its way around a pectoral, sneaking in toward the nipple? Or even farther south, perhaps?

Even if you took Mr. Unusual out of the equation, there was nothing normal about the situation I found myself in. After all, what recent graduate of law school finds themselves volunteering in a soup kitchen? A recent graduate who lost her head—and heart—over a bad boy, that’s who.

Most people seem to think that those who study law are smart. Super smart, actually. There’s a reason for that—folks who study law are smart. If they pass all the exams, that is. And I did—with distinction. Which makes me clever on paper, I suppose, but apparently lacking in common sense, or perhaps I just have severely poor judgment. Or both.

However you want to look at it, I fucked up. Big time. I fell for the wrong guy, trusted him, and ended up caught up in something that got me arrested.

It could have been the end of my law career. Before it had even started, and after all those years of education—not to mention a rather large chunk of my parents’ cash. Fortunately, they’ve got plenty of it, due to my daddy’s successful career. He works in law, too, which, luckily for me, means he’s got friends in high places.

So it was less voluntary work, more community service. Otherwise known as do-this-or-you’ll-get-a-criminal-record-and-kiss-your-career-goodbye.

Fixing my potential glittering career in my mind, I took a deep breath and crossed the industrial-looking kitchen, heading toward him. He looked utterly at home chopping carrots—he was like one of those chefs you see on the telly, his hand and the knife he gripped moving so fast they were almost a blur. I cringed at the thought of trying such a thing. Never mind the end of my career, it’d be the end of my fingers.

Approaching cautiously—I didn’t want to startle him and cause a horrific accident—I waited until he’d finished his carrot before speaking. “Um, hi.”

Turning quickly, still with his knife in his hand, he smiled. “Ah, hello. You must be Penny.”

For a moment, I was so caught up in his eyes that I couldn’t reply. Fortunately, I managed to get a grip before I was the one who was a nutter. “Um, yes, that’s right. I’m here to help out.”

As though suddenly realizing he still held the knife, he glanced at it in his hand, then quickly put it down on the counter. “Sorry. Didn’t mean to greet you with a blade! I’m so used to using the things that it’s like they’re an extension of my arm.”

Hmm, so maybe he’s Edward Knifehands. I suppressed a shudder.

Those stunning eyes—such an unnatural yet beautiful blue—twinkling, he held out his now empty hand. “I’m Maddox Black. Pleased to meet you. And very pleased to have you here.”

We shook. As we did so, the heat that had sparked inside me when we’d made eye contact began to intensify.

Christ, no, Penny. You just ditched one bad boy. The last thing you need to do is swap him for another one.
