With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to talk about love and romance. Of course, as a romance author I think about this every day (and as my books tend to be on the steamy side, I also seem to think about sex quite a lot. It’s a hard job but someone has to do it!)
In my latest release, Every Breath You Take, which is part of the Seduced boxed set, my first idea was to have almost the entire story set around Valentine’s Day, but as soon as Mason and Piper appeared in my mind I knew that wasn’t going to work.
These two have history, and when they meet again after five years neither think there can be anything serious between them. Not only did Piper used to date Mason’s older brother Colton, but they’re both eaten up with guilt over Colton’s death all those years ago.
Piper is sure if she can only let go of the teenage crush she had on the bad boy rebel Mason, she’ll be able to move on with her life. A one-night stand seems like the perfect answer.
As for Mason, he fell hard for Piper five years ago but is convinced she could never forgive him for what happened to his brother. If a hot one-night stand is all she’s willing to offer him, then he’ll take it with both hands.
As Valentine’s Day approaches, Mason chooses the perfect gift for Piper, to show her just how much she means to him. But instead of roses and chocolates the day turns everything inside out, and both Mason and Piper realise if they want a future together, they’ll have to overcome their past.
She’s the one girl this bad boy could never have…
It was only supposed to be a forbidden one night stand with the bad boy she’d never forgotten, but Piper Thomas soon discovers it takes more than sizzling sex to scorch her teenage fantasies. The more he gives, the more she needs…
It’s been five years since Mason Hunter’s brother died, and he’s tried to put the guilt behind him. But when Piper, the girl his brother should’ve married, reappears in his life and offers him the one thing he’s always craved – one steamy night in her arms – he can’t resist.
Piper’s the only woman he’s ever wanted, but how can they have a future together when the past haunts every breath they take?
