And here's Shelli...
Thanks for having me here today! I loved writing the McLaughlin series, and Delonna and Aleck's book was so awesome to write. Their story has been building throughout the entire series. They're beautiful, wounded souls drawn together in a explosive chemistry.
Sleeping with her boss can only lead to trouble. And pleasure.
The McLaughlins, Book 4
Delonna comes by her Scottish-style frugality honestly—her parents’ spendthrift ways once left her temporarily homeless. She’s been tending bar at McLaughlin’s Pub, looking forward to the day she can call her own shots. Until her now ex-boyfriend makes off with her hard-earned savings. Now she’s got a bookie breathing threats down her neck in an apparent attempt to squeeze blood from a turnip.
Aleck McLaughlin has three good reasons to keep his hands off the delectable Delonna. One, he’s her boss. Two, she’s a good ten years younger. Three, he’s sworn to never again leave his heart vulnerable.
Her predicament sends all those reasons out the window, and Aleck moves her in with him for protection, then whisks her away on a whirlwind trip from Whidbey Island to Scotland.
The romance of being in Edinburgh only increases their need for one another. But it quickly becomes clear they’re facing a past that’s just as painful as the present is dangerous…
Warning: A sexy, broody, pub owner determined to seduce his flirty, bombshell bartender. Not-so-hidden dangers, travels to Scotland, and maybe a little spanky panky.
"What kind of fookin' bastart do you take me for?" he demanded.
She didn't try to escape his grasp, but now lifted her chin and met his anger head on.
"Well you had plans to screw someone else, so maybe you figured you'd pull a Boy Scout move with me and get lucky at the same time."
"I helped you last night because I'm a nice guy. I can be one, you realize, when I want to be." He slid his fingers down her arm to join their hands. "And I'm a bit curious at how you'd know all about my so-called plan to get laid last night."
"Let's just say a little birdie told me."
He glanced at the door behind her, and wagered that if he were to open it he'd find his sister sitting at the bar.
"A little birdie named Kenzie, perhaps?"
"Does it matter?"
"Aye, it does." He pulled her flush against him and this time she did look alarmed.
"Because I suspect I don't need to dress up as a knight in shining armor to get you into bed, Delonna."
She made a little gasp and her eyes went even wider--if that were possible.
"You cocky mother--"
"Your mouth is really much better suited for kissing than cursing, luv."
Before she could finish ripping him a new one, he dipped his head and claimed her lips.
It wasn't a need that had begun last night. Not even one from that kiss over the summer. It had been simmering on the back burner from the minute he'd hired her.
