Hee hee–two of my most favorite words in the world! And now they’re even more special to me. My latest book with Samhain Publishing comes out today. It’s the fourth book in the Black & White Collection, a series of wicked fantasy stories.
Last call? She’ll take a double. Straight up, please…
For six years, widow Grace Wright’s days have been filled as a single working mother. Now, with her daughter graduating, her nest is yawning before her, wide and empty. And so is the upcoming weekend. Invited out by her coworkers, she decides it’s time to turn that corner and get on with her life.
Jamie’s had his eye on Grace for years, but it never seemed the right time to approach her. Tonight, something’s different. The sexual signals she’s giving off are unmistakable—and he’s not the only man in the bar who’s noticed. His best friend, Trey, is breaking a sweat just looking at the delectable English teacher.
The two men make her the offer of a lifetime, and Grace doesn’t hesitate. For one night, Jamie and Trey indulge her every desire, every fantasy, every naughty craving. In the morning Trey is gone with the wind, but Jamie his holding on to every moment as if he never wants to let go. Leaving her wondering if another chance at forever is too much to ask…
“I’ll never let you touch her,” Jamie said. His words were true.
“You’ll never let me touch her alone.”
Jamie’s eyes widened. His mouth opened, then closed, then opened again, but no sound emerged. He could see Trey taking a perverse bit of pride in leaving him speechless.
“A threesome?” Jamie whispered.
“Do you think Grace would go for it?”
Jesus. Jamie wasn’t sure he’d go for it, but now that the idea was out there, he had to admit it was a secret fantasy of his.
“I don’t know. Are you serious about this, Trey? Would you really go through with it?” He knew Trey, knew this was uncharted waters for both of them.
Trey considered the question. “Yeah, if she wanted to and you were okay with it, I think I would.”
“I’m in love with Grace.” The words flew from his lips, but he wanted them said, wanted Trey to understand.
“I know that, man. I’ve known that forever.”
Jamie nodded, but Trey’s answer wasn’t enough. He would never risk Grace’s emotions, her feelings on something that Trey might consider just a lark. “I need to know how you feel about her.”
Trey grinned. “I’m fucking crazy about her, but I’m not in love with her. She’s an awesome friend and I think she’s one helluva woman. Let’s just say my feelings reside in the ‘friendship with healthy bit of lust’ realm.”
“That’s not good enough.”
Trey ran his finger around the rim of his glass. He was silent for a few moments and Jamie sensed his friend was struggling to explain his feelings. Finally, he looked up. “She’s a good friend, Jamie. Probably one of the best I’ve ever had. I’d never do anything I thought would jeopardize that relationship. I may not be in love with her, but I care about her. A lot. There’s an attraction between us. I don’t wanna fuck up anything between you two, but I’m pretty sure I’d spend the rest of my life wondering what it would be like to be with her. Just once. And, at the risk of sounding cocky as shit, I sort of think she’d wonder too.”
