Every woman needs a little danger in her life. Lacey Weston, too, but what’s perilous about a wildlife shoot in the beautiful Montana wilderness? Armed with only a camera, Lacey treks through the rough terrain and captures more on film than she bargains for—the murder of a young woman.
Fearing for her life, Lacey flees the scene and stumbles into the small, prairie town of Rimrock, straight into the path of a man who strongly resembles the murderer. Sheriff Danger Blackstone, with his piercing gray eyes and rugged physique could be the man in her undeveloped pictures.
With no where else to run or hide, Lacey must decide if she dares to trust her life to the only person who can protect her—one with an apparent grudge against Anglo females which makes him less than approachable—the very man she suspects of murder.
In the Arms of Danger, a suspenseful, action-packed romance with hard-bodied cowboys and long, hot nights that gives a whole new meaning to the Wild West.
EXCERPT FROM IN THE ARMS OF DANGER: RELEASE DATE, JUNE 7TH....WARNING: ADULT CONTENT
Lacey twined her fingers around his arm. “Why don’t we wait until it’s fully dark and we can slip away?” she asked quietly.
Danger hesitated. She looked scared there in the early twilight. Her eyes glittered in the shadows. He gently traced a fingertip down her smooth cheek. Heat leapt from her to him. He grinned, lifting a dark brow. “Now, darlin’, you wouldn’t be worrying about me, would you?”
“It’s too dangerous to try and make an escape in the dark. There’s no moon. Traveling in pitch black isn’t something I relish. The horses could stumble, break a leg. We could go over a cliff. I’m not taking those kind of risks and neither are you.”
He winked at her, but he’d grown very still, his eyes searching hers for the answers he sought. Suddenly he pulled her to him. “I might not be able to see him to hit him, but I can scare the hell outta him. Make him move on. Hopefully.” Thrusting his fingers through her hair, he tilted her face up to his. Danger lowered his head and rubbed his mouth against hers. “I don’t think I’m going to be able to wait much longer,” he whispered huskily.
His mouth closed over hers hard and rough. There was no gentleness this time. He didn’t feel gentle, but a man who desperately wanted and needed his woman. His aim was to leave her in no doubt as to exactly how he felt.
Danger groaned and locked his fingers in her hair as he eased his tongue past her lips and tasted the honeyed sweetness of her mouth. He took his time, sipping and deep stroking until his body ached and she was climbing into his lap, moaning, giving back as good as she got.
Slowly, he retreated, freeing her lips. He flashed a devilish grin at her and arched a brow suggestively. “Like I said, lady, I’m not going to be able to wait much longer.”
Lacey’s eyes widened with sudden understanding. “Oh,” she murmured faintly.
She discovered she was clutching his shirt with trembling fingers and somehow, she’d ended up in his lap. He didn’t bother to hide the fact his erection throbbed against her butt. She squirmed, rubbing against him like a cat in heat.
“Don’t sweetheart,” he said huskily. “I want you too, but we can’t, not now.”
Very gently, he removed her hands, giving them a light squeeze as he searched her eyes for answers to questions that hadn’t yet been voiced.
“I can’t wait much longer, either,” she said faintly.
And there was her answer, he thought. She didn’t care if he knew she wanted him, too.
Danger slid his gaze over her mouth, lingering for a charged moment. God, he would like nothing better than to slowly nibble his way down, starting at her luscious mouth and stopping at her slender, pink toes. He wanted to taste all the secret hills and shadowy valleys in between. By God, he would, too.
His mouth suddenly felt like it was stuffed with cotton. He couldn’t swallow past the dryness. “Another time, little cat, I could do quite well by you,” he breathed.
