What inspired you to write your book?
I love military heroes and love coming home stories, so this was a way to combine the two.
Here is a short sample from the book:
“You see, I made a wish. You know, on my birthday candle. It’s the same wish I’ve made for the last handful of years.”
“What’s your wish?” he asked in a slow, cautious tone. Well, he wasn’t a well-trained special ops guy for nothing.
“To have sex with you.”
Cade was pretty sure Eden could have kicked him in the balls at that moment and he wouldn’t have felt a damned thing. Nope, his brain was frozen in shock, while his body was enflamed with passion.
He gave a quick, contemplative glance at the cliffs. How far was the jump? He’d gone deeper, he’d probably survive. And it’d be less risk than he faced right at this moment.
Because right now, the threat wasn’t the cute little brunette standing in front of him. Nope, it was his own desires putting him at risk. Desires he shouldn’t feel, knew better than entertaining, and usually pretended didn’t exist.
Cade had rules. Strict ones that he lived his relationships by. The first being that there were no strings. None. That included lifelong relationship ties that went all the way back to hauling her off her trike when she’d run it into the bushes at the base of his driveway.
They had a history.
They had a pseudo-friendship. The closest he’d ever had with a woman.
What they shouldn’t have was heat. Passion. Sexual needs that arced between them like a live electric current, threatening to burn down anything it touched.
How did he explain his rules? Ask her to promise not to get ugly when he walked away? To accept that once he walked, they wouldn’t be playing again the next time he was home? To other women, it was easy. But to Eden? He’d sound like a prick. And while he might laugh off her always calling him her hero, he wasn’t excited about the idea of destroying that myth and hurting her feelings all at the same time.
“Poor Cade,” she laughed, like she thought it was funny that she’d tied him in knots then forced him to choose between his morals and his body’s pounding needs. “It’s hard, isn’t it?”
Oh baby, she had no idea.
