Wanting her son’s best friend shouldn’t feel so right …
Jay Savage is one of the most sought after models in the business who seems to have it all. He’s the face of romance novel covers from coast to coast, and has expanded his brand. Despite the endless possibilities in his life, Jay doesn’t have is the one woman he wants most. She is everything he needs, and everything he can’t have. Their age difference isn’t the only obstacle standing in the way of convincing her they were made for one another. Leanne is also his best friend’s mom.
On Nita Lake to celebrate the marriage of her son, Leanne Hogan is faced with the most delicious temptation she’s ever encountered. Their smoldering heat burns down her defenses, and Leanne finds herself giving in to the only man who tempts her banked desires. They shouldn’t work. Can’t work. So why does it feel so right when she’s in his arms?
Cover Me is still in edits, so some polishing left to do, but here’s small preview …

“Sounds as though you’re enjoying yourself.”
Leanne jumped at the voice behind her and turned.
Pleased with the distraction, she welcomed Jay’s interruption to her thoughts. He always filled her heart with warmth. From the time she’d met him as a young teenager to the promising adult he’d become, he’d held a special place in her heart.
“Jay! I’m glad you’re still here. Beau told me you were staying on a few more days. Good for you. You deserve time off.”
“Hi, Leanne. Thanks. It’s great to see you. Did you enjoy today?”
“I did. It was a gorgeous ceremony. I may just see if I can have breakfast in that garden tomorrow. It’s so stunning out there.”
“A great idea. Can I join you?”
The hopeful expression on his face was so cute and did her in. She was unable to refuse him. She’d always loved having him around the house with Beau, and she liked the idea of catching up with him. They hadn’t seen one another in the last six months. At least not as far as he knew.
Don’t think about that now.
She cleared her throat, nervous. “Yes, you can.” Pushing away the unwanted thoughts, she smiled. Still wired from the day’s excitement, she had energy to burn and didn’t want the evening to end. Spending it with a good friend sounded great.
“Better yet, join me for a drink in the bar? They might still serve food, too. I’m getting hungry.”
Jay held out his arm for her to take his elbow and chuckled. “You never miss an opportunity to eat, do you?”
She laughed and gave his shoulder a light slap. “Don’t tease. I have always had a healthy appetite. At least what I eat doesn’t stay attached to my hips. I may not have my twenty-year-old figure anymore, but working out three times a week helps.”
“You look gorgeous. And sexier than ever.”
Leanne glanced over at him, the husky baritone in his voice surprising her. She’d never heard him sound so masculine.
Goosebumps coated her arms. The hungry look in his brown eyes had her sucking in a deep breath. With the images she’d seen of him, on book covers, magazines, and billboards in town, she saw him in a whole new way.
A sexy, adult male way that she shouldn’t entertain.
Not at her age.
Damn. When did he get so sexy?
Shame on you, woman. You’re old enough to be his mother.
Her inner voice spoke the truth. Her mind drifted to the photo she’d seen of him the other day—clad only in Calvin Klein underwear.
She remembered the way her untouched-for-months body had reacted. Nipples tightening, breathless and chest heaving, tingles of excitement erupted between her thighs. She’d jumped from her bed that night as though it had caught fire and spent the next few hours cleaning her house from room to room to occupy her mind and erase her embarrassment. She had done whatever it took to keep from eyeing Jay in a lustful way.
And now, here she was again, her thoughts drifting in ways that a woman her age shouldn’t entertain. She was such a fool. As if a man twenty years her junior could see her as sexy or desirable.
Cripes, she wasn’t even able to keep her husband—her same age—interested in her. He’d dumped her sorry ass for a blonde bimbo in her early twenties. There’d be no fathomable way she could hold on to a man like Jay.
“You shouldn’t doubt how stunning you are, Leanne.”
