Tropes: Revenge, one night stand
Holly Campbell is trying to turn her life around. But, to protect her younger brother, she has one last job to complete. All she needs to do is use her unique skills to break into the safe on a yacht—millionaire Jake Lawson’s yacht—a man Holly had a one-night stand with before she knew his true identity.
Jake knows Holly can’t be trusted. He believes she used the one night stand as a decoy to steal from his company and he knows she’s up to something again. Jake’s determined to figure out what and stop her. He won’t let her take anything from him, least of all his heart.
“You should have kissed me,” she said as they left the building.
Jake stopped in the middle of the sidewalk, forcing people to skirt around them. “What?”
“Now there’s all this pent up tension in both of us and sexual frustration can take years off your life. It’s a scientific fact. Humans give off pheromones and when there’s no release, it can lead to higher stress levels and ultimately a shorter life.”
He blinked. “You think we should kiss for medical reasons?”
Holly nodded. “I’m only trying to prolong your life.”
Jake laughed. “That is the worst pickup line I’ve ever heard.”
“Really?” She scrunched up her nose. “I thought it was pretty damn good.”
“Is any of it true?”
“In that case, let’s prolong together.” Jake took her hands and wrapped them around his waist. He’d never engaged in a public display of affection but then again, he’d never met a woman like Holly before, either. And it was just a kiss.
He gazed into her eyes and was struck as always by her beauty and her impish grin. Lowering his head, he brushed his lips against hers first, then kissed her deeply, drinking her in. The heat they’d created between them that night in the hotel flared right back up.
She tasted like the answer to all the nights afterward that he’d spent tossing and turning. She was captivity and freedom. Heaven and hell. Calmness and a storm. Drowning him under waves of desire.
When she nipped at his lower lip, Jake wanted nothing more than to rush back inside the building, find an office with a sturdy desk and satiate both of them until their legs wouldn’t hold them up. But the voice of reason intruded and he lifted his head.
“Not bad?” Jake arched his eyebrows. “I’ve been unfairly judged. I’m the best prolonger there is.”

The unofficial bio:
I am a southern girl through and through. I have varied taste in music and can dance (when no one’s watching) to the musical talents of: Sam Hunt, Luke Bryan, Gary Allan, Rascal Flatts, The Script, Maroon 5, Sam Smith, Little Mix, Neon Trees, and too many more to list.
I love the sound of a lonely train whistle blowing late at night, the sound of birds chirping as the day winds down, and the steady downpour of a summer rain.
I believe in positivity, encouraging people, and am amazed and thrilled that writing is my every day life.
