Today’s theme is reunions and I thought I’d give y’all a sneak peek at my upcoming release with Ellora’s Cave. Sweet Thursday is book four in the Wild Irish series and it will be hitting the virtual bookshelves on May 21. It is a red-hot menage between three high school friends who mee up at their ten-year reunion and decide to make up for some lost time.
Sweet Thursday excerpt:
“Jesus, I can’t even remember who half these people are.”
“Don’t look at me. I keep getting dirty looks from the women. I’m trying to sneak peeks at their nametags, but they seem to think I’m looking at their breasts.”
Justin grinned. “That’s funny. I’m looking at their tits pretending to read the badges.”
They were laughing as they approached Tristan’s table, but Killian noticed Justin’s died rather quickly upon arrival.
Killian looked up quickly at Justin’s stunned declaration and spotted her. “Lily Watterson?”
Lily, who had been talking to Tristan’s wife, Lane, glanced over at the sound her name.
“Surprise!” she said, her bright blue eyes shining with delight.
Killian stared at her, dumbfounded for a few seconds. “What the hell are you doing here? I thought you couldn’t make the reunion because you were still in California.”
“My new job started early. I’ve been in Baltimore for a couple weeks. I knew the reunion was coming up and I wanted to surprise you two.” Her voice was light, musical, her happiness at seeing them shining through. She walked around the table and they each took turns hugging her. Killian secretly sniffed her familiar floral perfume and was besieged by the good memories associated with that scent and her.
“Jesus,” he muttered when she stepped away from his friendly embrace. “You’re fucking hot.”
Lily laughed. “You’ve always had a way with words, Killian. Thanks.”
Though they’d stayed in touch with occasional emails and letters, he hadn’t laid eyes on her in a decade. She’d been cute in a plain-Jane sort of way in high school, but now she was a knockout. She’d abandoned her conservative clothes and was wearing a short black skirt showcasing long, firm legs that practically went up to her neck. She’d ditched that horrible pageboy haircut from school and her chestnut-colored hair now hung long and loose over her shoulders.
“What happened to your glasses?” he asked, kicking himself for the stupid question. He was having trouble reconciling this stunning beauty with the quiet girl who’d sat beside him in Anatomy class, dissecting all the dead animals with fervor while he jotted down the answers she gave him.
“Lasik.” Her answer was quick and easy and she didn’t seem to mind the inanity of it.
“Damn. Am I glad to see you here.” Justin stepped closer and gave her a quick peck on the cheek and Killian knew his friend was impressed by this new-and-improved Lily too. “Listen, we’re in danger of being stalked by the divorced cheerleaders all night. We’re gonna need you to run interference if things get dicey.”
Lily patted Justin on the cheek, clearly amused by his joke. “The more things change, the more they stay the same. Haven’t you poor boys figured out how to run off the trampy girls yet?”
Justin shrugged and gave her a cocky grin. “It’s only the odd occasion when we actually want to run them off. Doesn’t leave a lot of time for practicing evasive maneuvers.”
Sweet Thursday will be available at Ellora’s Cave on May 21. Check out the coming soon page to read another excerpt from the story.
