Synopsis: One sexy rugby player. One chance encounter. One explosive night neither will ever forget.
Fern Morgan is done with men. For tonight anyway. Stood up and annoyed, she doesn’t fancy hanging around when the bar is crashed by local rugby team, the Strathstow Sharks. But her escape plans are halted by a cute blond player with a killer smile and a muscled body to die for…
Tom Sexton is the team’s Mr.Sensible. The guy who keeps an eye out for the rest and makes sure everyone gets home at the end of the night. But one look at the curvy little brunette trying to make a break for it and all his predatory instincts go into overdrive. Tom’s done being Mr.Sensible…
 The problem is, once he has her in his bed, will he ever want to let her go?

Excerpt 2: Victim of Her Own Plot (Fern's POV)


What the hell was she doing? Fern fell silent as Tom took her hand and led her

from the bar. He stopped for a second to talk with another man, one built like a small

mountain. She couldn’t do more than offer the guy a tight-lipped smile, heat burning

into her cheeks like napalm.

It had to be obvious what they were up to. God, how embarrassing. Before she

could chicken out though, Tom led her out of the bar. She shivered as the night air

hit her, her thin dress scant protection again the cold.

“Here, let me.”

He shucked his jacket and draped it over her shoulders. Warmth and the scent of

his cologne, sharp citrus and sandalwood, surrounded her. She breathed a sigh of

pleasure but frowned, starting to shrug out of it. “But you’ll get cold. Take it back.”

“Cold? This? This is mild compared to what we train in.”

He wrapped the jacket about her with a tight grip on the lapels. Leaning down, he

kissed her again. A lingering kiss that was over too soon. Her lips tingled as he lifted

his head, and she couldn’t help a pout of frustration.

He rumbled, a low sound of amusement from deep in his broad chest. “Soon, I

promise. Riggs is calling us a cab, but it’ll take a couple of minutes to get here so

how about you come over here and keep me warm.”

Keeping his grip on the jacket, he walked backward until he leaned against the

wall, pulling her closer. She stepped between his spread thighs, hands splayed over

his chest for balance, but he carried on tugging her until she rested against his hard

body. She bit her lip at the leashed power in his frame, the muscles beneath her

hands corded and tense.

She’d never considered herself the delicate type of female, apt to swoon at the

mere presence of a man, but wrapped in his arms, she felt tiny and feminine. He

surrounded her, his body language both protective and possessive.

He held her close, one hand sliding to the nape of her neck while the other slid

down the length of her back to cup her ass in a bold move. She gasped as he pulled

her flush with his hips again, his interest pressing hard into her belly. Sparks of

arousal fizzed through her veins, tingling along every inch of her skin and settling

low in her abdomen. An achy, nervous feeling as though a thousand hyper-active

butterflies took up residence.

His lips curved towards a smile as he looked down at her, still taller even though

he was in a slight squat against the wall. She liked that, liked that he was so tall and

powerful. The light in his blue eyes was warm, with a hint of darkness lurking

behind them. A heated darkness she wanted to see much more of.

He bent his head, nudging at her nose with his, more a nuzzle than anything,

before he claimed her lips. Again, he was soft and gentle, but the tension in the

muscles beneath her hands told a different story. He was holding back, and she

didn’t want that. She wanted all that power unleashed. Wanted to feel it, taste it.

So she moved in, pressing against his hips with hers to trap his hard cock

between them. Sliding her hands up to his shoulders, she kissed him back, angling

her head and parting her lips in invitation.

He growled, a low sound deep in the center of his chest that she more felt than

heard. His fingers tightened, gripping the rounded globe of her ass as he took her up

on her offer. His tongue slid past her lips to stroke along hers, and she became a

victim of her own plot.

 A physical therapist for successful Rugby team, the Strathstow Sharks, Ashley's golden rule is never to mix business and pleasure.

Luckily, he shows no sign of having noticed her attraction, and hasn't shown any interest in her...
She's been his from the moment he saw her...
 Harry James marked the pretty little physio the first day they met. For the last year he's been biding his time, and trying to get her attention. So much so, it's gained him a few nicknames in the squad. Not that anyone would dare tell her.
 When the Sharks win big on Harry's birthday, can he stop at claiming a birthday kiss, or will he want everything she has to give?


About Mina Carter
Mina was born and raised in the East Farthing of Middle Earth (otherwise known as the Midlands, England) and spent her childhood learning all the sorts of things generally required of a professional adventurer. Able to ride, box, shoot, make and read maps, make chainmail and use a broadsword (with varying degrees of efficiency) she was disgusted to find that adventuring is not considered a suitable occupation these days.
 So, instead of slaying dragons and hunting vampires and the like, Mina spends her days writing about hot shifters, government conspiracies and vampire lords with more than their fair share of RAWR. Turns out wanna-be adventurers have quite the turn of imagination after all…
