MWTease15Happy Wednesday Friends! I hope everyone is doing great!

This week’s tease comes from GUARDING MIDNIGHT. This scene is after a hot bout of sex.

The chill in the air surprised her considering sweat dampened her skin. Her whole body trembled from the adventure this man had just taken her on.
She pulled her sports bra back over her breasts and eased off his lap. On her knees, she gathered the rest of her clothes and stepped into the sweats she’d brought with her. “I can officially say my workout is finished for today.” She grinned at him over her shoulder. “That GMtoppickwas definitely better than planking or lifting weights.” Pushing her arms into the sleeves of her sweatshirt, she zipped it up, then took a long drink from her water bottle.
He chuckled as he sat up. Bloody hell and Christ almighty. How was a girl to cool off when this golden god was built like he was?
Her gaze ran over his back, in awe as she strode across the floor toward him. Her finger traced over his back, her gaze roaming the permanent ink.
Beautiful. A bald eagle covered his entire back, its wings spread out across his shoulder blades. The eagle’s beak was open, eyes as angry as the spread of its wings. It reminded her of a hunter, warning off others from coming near. The only color was the red of the Canadian flag in the bird’s tail feathers. Spectacular. “This is magnificent.”
He turned toward her. “Thanks. One of the guys in my unit does a great job. I forget it’s there sometimes.”
She continued to trace the tat as her eyes met his. “I love it. What made you decide to get one?”
Gavin shrugged. “The guys were always talking about how I was everyone’s keeper, how I constantly made sure they were taken care of. Some started calling me Guardian. The night I got this…” He lifted his shoulders. “We’d all had a long, hellish day. So much suffering over there, it seemed like it would never end. I’d pulled a guy out of a burning building, not fast enough, though, since he’d suffered third degree burns across his legs and arms by then.” He stopped. Fists clenched on his bare thighs, he closed his eyes in remembrance.
Shree shifted closer, and laid a cheek on his shoulder.
A breath shuddered through him. “But he survived, and is doing okay in Saskatchewan. The guys looked upon me like some hero out of a story. Rich, the guy who did the tat, convinced me to let him do it, to commemorate the time over there and how much they all trusted me.”
“The eagle is a protector, a guardian. Rich chose well,” she murmured against his skin. She pulled back and ran her fingers over the white skull. “Masculine, dominant, and ruler.” Leaning in, she kissed his shoulder then sat back. “I have to agree, it suits you.”
He smirked at her. “Have me figured out, do you?”

This week’s tease comes from GUARDING MIDNIGHT, my most recent release. Shree’s been kidnapped and trying to think smart.

Copyright, KaceyHammell, 2015
Shree struggled against the rope binding her arms behind her.
The two thugs who’d taken her from the club had dumped her in a filthy sparse room with only a single mattress and a dim light on the ceiling. The smell of it hit her the moment they dragged her into the room and shoved her on the floor.
Sweat, urine, and rotting meat.
It’s what she imagined death would smell like—pungent, filthy decaying, and eye-watering. GMtoppickShe’d never smelled anything remotely like it before. She’d remember it forever.
They’d stripped her of everything except her leotard. The cold immediately washed over her body. The air conditioning had to be on full blast. In the back of her mind, she knew it was to throw her off, keep her on edge and eventually make her weak. The chill would set into her limbs and she’d be too shaky to fight them.
If only they knew the tactics of her ex, they wouldn’t be so quick to count her out just yet.
The creep in the backseat had enjoyed groping her. She’d slapped him away for as long as she could, but eventually, she’d shut her mind off as best she could. She’d been through it too many years to not zone it out. It always killed her to do so because it was as if she was giving in, but it was also what kept her sane. She swore she’d never go allow such trespasses against her body ever again, but tonight, she had no choice.
Gavin would come for her. He’d save her. So she had to survive.
One more time.
For him.
Keys in the lock caught her attention. She scurried back on the bed until her back was firm against the wall. She couldn’t allow them to crowd her from all sides. Hopefully, it would work.

Mid Week Tease: “Getting involved with him would be a very bad idea.” #MWTease

This week’s tease comes from GUARDING MIDNIGHT, my just recently contracted book with Evernight Publishing. Release date TBD.

Here is a bit of the UNEDITED version since it hasn’t gone through edits just yet. And I’m THRILLED to show off my NEW COVER for it this week too.

In previous wks, you’ve met Gavin & Midnight a bit, here they are generating some heat together…

“I’ve dealt with rowdy customers before, Gavin. There’s nothing I haven’t been able to handle.”
He frowned at her.
For heaven’s sake. He needed to stop looking at her like that—fire in his eyes, totally focused on her and tension radiating off that spectacular bod.

GuardingMidnight-evernightpublishing-jayaheer2015-FinalCoverA shiver snaked along her spine. A thirty-minute workout with him…
No. Now was not the time for those thoughts.
“Look, Shree, these aren’t some drunk, grab-ass happy customers
who want to feel you up. I’ve met men like these before and they can be very dangerous. They’ll use whatever they can against Charlie, and that means you. Especially since you’re the star attraction. I don’t want you in harm’s way at all. Got it?”
Oh, this man was asking for trouble—in more ways than one. She wasn’t used to having anyone tell her what to do. Not like this.
His brooding scowl, the tight body…she needed a cold shower…stat.
Lifting her right leg over, she got off the spin bike and stood on shaky legs. Wincing, she realized in her
attempts to block this man from her mind, she’d pushed herself a little further than necessary.
“Now you look, bud. I understand you’re here to protect me from drunks, cretins, and all low-lifes who come in here.” She swiped the towel off the bars and slung it around her neck. Hands on hips, she glared at him. “But I’m a big girl and I know how to take care of myself. I don’t want, nor do I need, any macho man speaking at me. Now back off.”
Nostrils flaring, her gaze stayed locked on the burning embers he scorched her with. Refusing to back away, knowing if she did then he’d run roughshod over her until the end of time, she drew in small breaths and waited.
She didn’t have to wait long.
“You women are so pig-headed.” He inched a step closer. “You never know when to shut up and just listen. I’m trying to take care of all of you here.”
“Then go tell some of the other girls. You’ve ordered me to do what you want. Fine. You’re done. We’re done.” Chin up, Shree turned away.
He grabbed her arm, startling her. She spun back, legs unsteady and reached out blindly as she began to fall.
The world spun around her, and she braced to hit the floor.
Warmth wrapped her waist, and then darkness smashed into her.
A deep groan brought her back. Scanning the room, the realization hit her. She was spread out over Gavin. She gasped. His strong body had broken her fall, though she’d probably end up with some bruises. He gazed at her with his beautiful cognac eyes.
Getting involved with him would be a very bad idea. She had to study, work hard to finish school and get away from clubs for good. She searched his gaze, searching for what she didn’t know. Maybe some sign that her heart wouldn’t be bruised after he was done with it.
“Shree,” Jesus. Her name rolled off his lips, almost like a growl. The rasp put her body in overdrive.

Cover Reveal~ Guarding Midnight by KaceyHammell #RomSusp #CanadianMuscle #ComingSoon

 

Guarding Midnight
Series: Canadian Muscle 1
Contemporary/Suspense/Erotic Romance
Coming Soon with Evernight Publishing
Cover Artist: Jay Aheer

 

Being the hired muscle just got a whole lot harder…..

GuardingMidnight-evernightpublishing-jayaheer2015-FinalCoverNo one knows sacrifice better than former Army Sergeant Gavin Bennett. He’s witnessed firsthand the emotional, physical and mental toll of being caught in the crossfire. Being a bouncer-slash-bodyguard may not be Gavin’s dream job, but he’s willing to do just about anything to help out family. When Gavin reports for his first day of work, he quickly discovers a woman who threatens to crack his legendary cool.

Shree Walker is on the run from a dark past she tried to shut away. Battered and broken, a happily ever after doesn’t exist for her. Ready to start fresh with a new life in a new city, she is happy dancing at the Vixen Club. She’d be even happier without the presence of the prickly new bouncer who won’t let anyone or anything get past his carefully guarded defenses. He’s a distraction she doesn’t need. And a temptation she can’t resist.

When Shree is kidnapped by the criminal mastermind hell-bent on taking the club at any cost, Gavin has to make a decision. Hold tight and continue to keep Shree at arm’s length. Or break down his walls and take a chance on something more powerful than them both: Love.

Mid Week Tease: “She was going to hell from lusting after this stranger.” #MWTease

MWTease15Happy Wednesday Friends! I hope everyone is doing well. And staying warm. The cold snap hasn’t subsided here one bit. It’s become very discouraging to get out of bed!

Special thanks to Sandra Bunino for rallying authors together to share teases every week.

This week’s tease is another that comes from GUARDING MIDNIGHT, my just recently contracted book with Evernight Publishing. Release date TBD.

Here is a bit of the UNEDITED version since it hasn’t gone through edits just yet.

Shree — aka Midnight — gets her first look at Gavin, her “bodyguard”.

The last forty-five minutes had been a blessing. She’d squeezed a lot of study time in and her workout had been bliss. She chuckled. Most people would think her crazy for enjoying workouts. But if there was no enjoyment in it, then why bother?
It was a mantra she lived by.
Humming, she picked up her pace and tried recalling different medications, temperatures, comingsoonand syringe types in her mind. Deep in study mode, her eyes flew open as a dinging sound filled the room.
She glanced to the right.
Men came in all shapes and sizes with various builds, physiques and widths, and she understood that. But this man, whom she was sure could barely fit through the doorway, was one unlike anything she’d ever seen before.
Tall, at least six-six. Herculean shoulders, biceps that the short sleeves of his white t-shirt had no hope of getting over, and hard thighs were easy to determine even beneath the sweats he wore, which probably got their workout from just carrying this man around every day. Hell even her long arms wouldn’t be able to get around his midsection.
Damn if she didn’t want to try though.
But it was her most favorite feature on a man that captured her attention completely.
His head—bald, tanned…she had a weakness for his kind. To her there was a wildness, a stronger soul to a man who kept things clean and crisp.
His attention zoomed in on her as the door shut behind him.
The amber hue of his eyes reminded her of fine Cognac; clear, luminous and golden like honey.
It was the alcoholic drink she was most partial to. Oh yes, she could get drunk on him for sure. She was going to hell from lusting after this stranger. There was no time in her life for tangling with the opposite sex.
No matter how damn sexy and sinful he is.

Mid Week Tease: “What he wouldn’t give to claim the first taste.” #MWTease

MWTease15Happy Wednesday Friends! Another week in February gone! Bit the dust. See you again next year! Already 2015 seems to be flying by. And winter doesn’t seem to want to leave yet. The minus 30 temps in my area of Ontario, Canada has been frigid and I wish I could hibernate and not come back out until sometime in May!

Special thanks to Sandra Bunino for rallying authors together to share teases every week.

This week’s tease comes from GUARDING MIDNIGHT, my just recently contracted book with Evernight Publishing. Release date TBD.

Here is a bit of the UNEDITED version since it hasn’t gone through edits just yet. I hope you enjoy a bit of Gavin. GM is a “Roadhouse meets Burlesque” type feel.  Here, he’s just entered the club where he’ll be protector/bouncer for a while, and notices the talented “Midnight” for the first time…

The music picked up tempo, filling the area with rapid rhythms and a lot of bass.
Rock beats from a single on the last Nickelback album shook the floor. He couldn’t keep from tapping against the bar. His Army regimen played the band’s albums continuously. Hell, they were all Canadian and had to support home-country talent.
A blur of red and black rushing out on stage caught his attention. A woman skulked along at the front of the stage, bending, twirling and angling her hot, sexy bod, and would
comingsoonno-doubt capture every man’s attention when she performed.
Gavin swallowed hard, his eyes peeled to the sexy display in front of him.
Red sports bra and tight spandex shorts barely contained her curvy, tanned body dancing at lightning speed around the stage.
Long, toned legs stretched, her body twirled the pole as if it was made for her. Though she wore barely-there spandex, she didn’t give off a stripper vibe. Her thighs clung to the metal showing off strong muscles. Without moving her legs from the pole, she let go with her hands and planted them firmly on the floor. She moved like a worm as she stayed suspended, the pole between her legs as her arms held her up. Her tight, large breasts were so tempting. His mouth watered.
The woman was skilled and in-tune with her body, and with what she had to offer.
And boy, if she didn’t have a lot to offer.
Her breasts were definitely more than a handful, which was just how he liked them. Small, medium, large, and bountiful…as long as he could stick his dick in between the mounds and fuck them till his load burst all over a woman’s chin, lips, chest, neck, and in her hair. He loved to see his pleasure all over a woman.
His mouth watered because of the seductive goddess on stage.
Her long, dark and wavy hair clung to her face and shoulders, spinning around as much as she did. Bends, kicks, gymnast moves…he was impressed.
A flick of her hair, she turned and glanced back over her shoulder, her hips swaying to the distinct bass. Facing the empty seats, she covered the stage, her movements skilled and quick. He watched, transfixed at the many steps and could only guess at the training this woman needed to have in order to make it look so easy.
As the song ended, she bent at the waist, breathing deep. Her gaze caught on his.
He drew in a deep breath.
Damn, those dark depths laser focused on his, holding him in place. Desire coursed through him, pulling at him to forget his reason for being here and find out more about her.
Beautiful. He loved everything about her gorgeous face. From her high cheek bones to the perfectly shaped lips that looked luscious and tasty from where he sat.
What he wouldn’t give to claim the first taste. Of those lips and anywhere else from head to toe.
