It’s been a few crazy weeks since I posted to MWTease last but things have settled and I’m back to work full time!
Special thanks to Sandra Bunino for rallying authors together to share teases every week.
This week’s tease comes from STIRRING UP DIRTY, book 1 of “Stirred by Love” series — and connected to DARE — recently contracted and coming soon with Evernight Publishing.
This has not gone into edits yet, so any errors are my own and fixed soon! Here, Candy has gone to the storage room to help her friend Melissa grab some items for the bar that are needed. Unbeknownst to her, she’s locked herself in with Melissa’s brother, Eric…who is a handful!! And the last man she should be attracted to!!!

“I need that red box there brought down. The blue one beside it too. They aren’t heavy, just napkins.”
She nodded and lifted her arms. In her six inch heels it was hard to reach so high, and she widened her stance for better balance. The tips of her fingers eased the red box closer to the edge for her to grab the sides. She lowered it and set it on the stack of cases he had on the cart.
“I’m glad I can help. Melissa looked a bit frazzled out there. She is a hard worker.”
Candy reached for the blue box and nodded. “It seems like a great family unit that you all have.” Crap, this one was a bit farther back. She felt a breeze cross her skin as her top rose, baring her midriff. She wobbled on her heels. Shit. That’s all she needed was to fall on her ass while in a skirt and look like a fool.
Warm hands suddenly circled her waist. Gasping, she drew in a deep breath and grabbed onto the shelf with both hands as he touched her.
“Easy there, darlin’. Those heels aren’t exactly made for working.” His hot breath washed over her neck. Hot currents spread along her skin, igniting and firing to life.
God damn, god damn.
This wasn’t on the agenda tonight, or when she planned to come here. She didn’t have time for distractions. Especially not a sizzling hot attractive man who made her want to scream to fuck her.
“Umm, I guess I hadn’t planned on working tonight. But uhh…” Frig, she sounded like a bumbling idiot. “I could almost reach this one.” Eric moved in closer against her, his right hand easing across her stomach while the right closed over hers on the shelf.
“You’re not exactly the type of woman to be back here working like this.”
“I’m not?” Her question came out squeaky, and she hated how weak she sounded. She grit her teeth as his palm burned through her skirt. She wanted to close her stance and rub her thighs together. Need coursed through her, warming her from the inside out.
“No you’re not.”
“I don’t mind hard work.”
“You’re a woman who shouldn’t get her hands dirty. Nor lift anything to heavy. You should be catered to and worshipped.”
She let out a soft laugh. “Hardly. But I don’t think that’s how you really see me is it? You see me as a weak female who needs a man to take care of her.”
She glanced his way. He inched closer to her then closer still. Jesus why wouldn’t her feet move? They seemed glued to the floor and she couldn’t handle him any closer.
“Oh you need a man to take care of you, all right.” His chin skimmed along her shoulder. She shivered and gripped the shelf tighter. “You think I can’t smell your arousal in here?” he ground out on a harsh whisper.
She gasped and tried to pull away. No. He wouldn’t weaken her. Not in here. But his chest aligned with her back, pressing his dick against her ass.
His breath warm against the back of her neck, she closed her eyes. Warm, hard, strong, his heat protected her while it held her captive.
“The moment I saw you in this cloth of a skirt and tight shirt, my dick got hard, Candy.” He pushed forward, confirming his words. “And I knew I couldn’t let you out of here without touching you.” He slid his fingers up her thigh, pushing beneath the hem of her skirt, and brushing back and forth. “Your skin is so soft.” He nipped the back of her neck with his teeth.
She trembled. This was a very bad idea. Being in here with him, allowing him to explore her further, couldn’t—wouldn’t—do her any favors.
