Book description:

Elise Martinez wished her date with destiny didn’t include being run off the road by the most caring, handsome, and intelligent man she’d ever met.

Moving to Granite Lake to manage a bookstore and coffee shop meant Elise could finally leave her haunted past behind, but being a psychic mom to a deaf child has its benefits and downfalls—and her guarded heart isn’t ready for a new romance.

Rob Everett never imagined giving up corporate law to open a brewery with his brothers in Granite Lake would begin with a car accident and the arrival of a surprise baby.

As if being a single dad and starting a new business weren’t challenging enough, Rob can’t get the beautiful, mysterious, and feisty bookstore manager out of his mind.

For Elise and Rob, falling in love is a complicated, sexy, and emotional enterprise.

Mix in a baby, a haunted brewery, craft beer, and a dangerous ex-husband into this recipe of love and their future isn’t as easily divined as the fates would have foretold.

**A steamy, fun, stand-alone novel with a happy ever after.




Excerpt One


“If we do this, I need you to make me a promise,” she said and leaned back so she could look him in the eyes.

“What is it?” he asked, the hint of challenge gleamed in his pale irises.

“You can’t ask me out tomorrow or act like you own me or anything else possessive. We can have tonight and no promises afterward.”

“You want a one night stand with me, Elise Martinez? Should I feel used or honored before we even do the deed?”

“You’re using me, too. It’s mutually beneficial.”

“I guess this is happening, then,” he said with that irresistible half-smile, half-smirk that made her insides quiver and her toes curl.

“Yes, it is,” she said and slid her nails over his taut stomach toward his beltline.

Rob stroked his fingers over her chest and up her neck until he cradled her jaw. He tilted her face up, firm, yet delicate in the way he handled her. He forced her to look at him again before she could lower his pants and find out what the rest of him looked like.

“Are you sure about this, Elise?” he asked.

She stilled, breathing in the moment, staring back into the most incredible eyes she’d ever seen and nodded against his cupped hand. Elise turned her face into his hand, then tasted his finger with a stroke of her tongue. A hint of cinnamon lingered on his skin. He gripped her tighter for the second it took to bring his mouth back to hers.

His tongue delved in. His mouth captured hers. Possessive. It scared and thrilled her.

“Jesus, I like kissing you,” he whisper-hissed when he came up for air. He moved to the pulse point below her jaw. “We should move this to the bedroom.”



Excerpt Two


Elise rose from the couch and disappeared from the room. When she returned, she handed a paperback book to Rob.

“I bought this for you.”

He looked at the cover front and back. “I haven’t read this author.”

“He’s one of my favorite sci-fi authors of all time. The new book in the series came out yesterday.” She held up another book for Rob to see. “If you like it then I’ll bring you number two when you’re ready.”

“Are we having a reading date, Elise?”

“Is it too nerdy for you?”

“No. I’ve just never read with someone before,” he said.

“Well, then you’re really missing out.”

“I guess I’ve been missing out on a lot of good things. I’ve never had homemade chimichangas or been whupped at the Memory game by a munchkin, either.”

“We’re pretty awesome like that.” Elise sat on the couch next to her son, Colton, who was already fast asleep. “Don’t tell anyone. I don’t want the word to get around about us.”

“I wouldn’t let this secret out. It’s too good to share.”

One eyebrow rose and she opened her book. Rob likewise began reading and to his surprise, he was instantly sucked into the story. After the first few chapters, he realized Maisie needed her nighttime bottle. He set the book on the coffee table to take care of his daughter. The sci-fi author was good. Really good. He could have kept turning pages for hours if he didn’t have responsibilities to take care of. After putting the baby in bed, he lifted Colton from the couch and carried him to the guest room. Elise took care of Colton, then joined him in the living room. The novels were forgotten and all Rob could focus on was Elise.

She took his hand and led him to his bedroom. Sixty-nine became Rob’s new favorite number. Elise was insatiable. Rob couldn’t believe how incredible their chemistry was. There was no ebb to their flow. He only wanted more of her.
