Seasons of Seduction IV!

Seasons of Seduction IV is now available from Ellora's Cave. There's a great selection of sexy stories to satisfy your every desire. My story Taste of Honey, about a rough cowboy and a polished lady, is included in this anthology.

Taste of Honey started as a project for a workshop for my local RWA chapter, Western New York Romance Writers. We only had to write one page, but my cowboy, Jake, got under my skin and I had to tell his story.

Here's a little excerpt to tempt you:

“How about a dance, cowboy?”
The come-on in that silky voice would tempt a saint, and God knew Jake Manning wasn’t hittin’ the Pearly Gates anytime soon. When the scent of expensive perfume drifted over the stink of beer, whiskey and stale smoke, his body stirred against his will. He’d ducked in here to nurse a draft and a heart that had been stomped into a million pieces. The last thing he needed was a sweet-smellin’ woman.
But he couldn’t stop from lifting his gaze off the condensation on his mug, and glancing over his shoulder. Sleek blonde hair. An even sleeker body molded by a tight fitting tank top and painted-on jeans. The damn high-heeled boots she wore probably cost more than he made in a month. He turned away and chugged his beer, hoping to rinse away the bitter taste of lessons learned the hard way.
The band slid from an upbeat twang to a slow drawl, bringing a few couples out onto the dance floor. Jake pushed away the image of that high-class body pressed up against his. He sure as hell didn’t need that.
She placed her hand on his shoulder and it sizzled like a branding iron. “Dance with me.” Her breath brushed his neck as she tempted him again.
He shifted on the barstool to glare at her. “Lady, why are you pickin’ on me?”
Her smoky gray eyes raked over him, starting with his beat up cowboy hat and heating him all the way down his faded Wranglers to his scuffed-up boots. Her slick red lips slowly spread into a smile. “You look like you’d be a good dancer.”
Dancer? Did she think he was some wet-behind-the-ears cowpoke? Jake shook his head. “Find some other sucker.”
“Come on,” she said in a voice as slow and sweet as the honey his mama liked to put in her tea. Her hand slid off his shoulder and stroked its way down his arm until she laced her fingers with his. “It’s just one dance.”
Aw hell. Jake pushed back his Stetson as he stepped off the barstool and then followed her onto the dance floor. He’d never been able to resist a taste of honey.

Seasons of Seduction IV - December 22!

I'm so excited! My first sale to Ellora's Cave (but actually my second release)Taste of Honey, is part of their annual Cavemen anthologies and will be included in Season of Seduction IV which releases this Saturday, December 22nd! I'm in great company with some incredible authors! This volume will be available in both download and print, so while you're resting between wrapping packages and baking cookies, or if you just want a little heat for your Christmas, check out Seasons of Seduction IV!!

Here's a blurb for Taste of Honey:
Cowboy Jake Manning is nursing a beer and a heart that’s been stomped into a million pieces when classy Shauna Montgomery asks him to dance. Jake knows better than to get involved with another sweet-smellin’ woman, but what the hell, it’s just a dance.

Shaunna had been planning a little revenge against the boyfriend who dumped her but the steamy dance floor seduction leaves both her and Jake hot and hurting. They end up at Jake’s place for a lesson in power, control and passion. But can they get past their differences and learn to trust again?

Come on! You know you want to read it! Check back here on Saturday for the buy link or just go to Ellora's Cave!
