About the author:
Christie Grey loves sweet romances AND kink. So why not marry the two? 😉
Here is a short sample from the book:
He sat down next to her and drank some of his beer, staring out at the makeshift dance floor as he did so. The festivities were still in full swing. “Why aren’t you out there dancing?” he asked curiously.
“I could ask you the same thing.”
“You’re not one for giving straight answers, are you?” he observed with a twinkle in his eye.
“How do you know?” she shot back. “You’ve known me for what, all of thirty seconds?”
“Actually no, try twenty-five or so years.”
The unexpected remark caused Melody to swivel around in her seat so she could take another long, hard look at the man sitting next to her. She raised an eyebrow. “Do I know you?” she asked him, confused.
“We went to school together,” he told her matter-of-factly. “But I was a few years ahead of you. You were friends with my little sister, Tessa, back in the day. Zane Shepherd,” he introduced himself, extending his hand.
“Tessa Shepherd’s brother!” Melody exclaimed in surprise, shaking his hand. She never would have recognized him, but she immediately recognized his name. “I remember you! Tessa had a slumber party for her ninth birthday and you put a snake in my sleeping bag.”
“Guilty as charged,” Zane admitted. “What can I say? I was twelve and thought I was hilarious. But in my defence, it wasn’t a real snake. It was a little rubber novelty snake from that place in the mall that sold gag gifts.”
“That’s right,” Melody nodded.
“Though anyone who heard you scream would have thought it was a live boa constrictor or something,” he chuckled. “If I recall correctly, you chased me around for ages the next morning trying to kiss me.”
“I was trying to give you cooties,” Melody corrected him.
“You have cooties?” he asked with a smirk.
“No, but I guess you thought I did because you ran away screaming. Mission accomplished!”
“Well again, I was an incredibly stupid – and immature – twelve year old,” Zane pointed out ruefully.
