In Pursuit of Molly (Book 1 Cián O’Connor)
By Alyssa Bailey
Release: November 19, 2018
Molly Rasher had been obsessed with Cián O’Connor from the day she met the preoccupied veterinarian student. She was still dreaming of his toned body and serious demeanor when she finished college but he had only nodded and smiled in passing. With no further contact, it seemed her sexy dreams would have to find another star, until he walked into the clinic’s front door, reigniting her passions.
Cián was more than half-way through his training to be a veterinarian. Finally, he could afford to pursue his angel. Molly’s endearing, shy smile had tantalized him for almost two years and now the opportunity to be with her fell into his lap, he was going to grab it with both hands. He prayed she was ready for him because he’d learned if you wanted something bad enough, you held on tight until you got it. No matter the cost.
It was Friday evening. Molly and Cián were closing for the weekend. It was the Rashers’ anniversary weekend, so the clinic would be closed except for emergencies. Warren and several other community vets did weekend emergency rotations which had worked well for a few years. Cián and Molly would handle anything that came up.
“Hey, Molly, do you want to go out somewhere?”
Molly smiled mischievously. “I don’t know. You mean like a date?”
“Yes, exactly like a date.”
Cián’s eyes looked at her confidently but more than that, as though he were the only one that could ask her. Proprietorship. Molly’s core pinged.
“But a few weeks ago, you told my dad you dated only those who you would consider as a wife.”
“Do you listen at many keyholes?”
Molly felt the heat rise up her neck and onto her cheeks with intense embarrassment. “No. It was an accident.”
He nodded with a little twitch of his lips. “Yes, I remember. That hasn’t changed.”
“Then why ask me to go out?”
“Well, going on the premise we just discussed, I’d make the obvious conclusion that I think you might be marriage material.”
“Might?” she squealed.
“Yeah? Well, what if I’m not sure you’re marriage material?”
He reached over and dropped a light possessive kiss on her lips. “Nope.” His grin was broad and cocky. “To know me is to love me. Besides, I’ve learned from my sisters, the way to a woman’s heart is through action. Things like licking, kissing, worshiping, listening, oh, and when the time is right, clit action is never a bad choice.”
“Cián O’Connor, did you just say that to me?”
“Did you just question my motives for asking you out tonight?”
“I was teasing.”
Seriousness spread across his face again, causing her some concern. “I wasn’t.”
Molly waited to see if he would ask again. He didn’t. “Are you sure you want to date the boss’s daughter?”
“I’m sure I want to date you.”
“I’ll have to see if I’m free.”
There was a knock at the clinic’s locked door. Cián turned to see who was there. He leaned in close as he passed. His hot moist breath flowed over her cheek and bathed her neck.
“I spank for naughty. Remember that.”

Alyssa loves writing romance for the naughty in all of us. She writes power exchanges between strong, intelligent, sassy women who are not afraid to make a stand and men confident enough to give his woman space, but Alpha enough to keep her safe despite her choices.
