Welcome back readers and happy December. The song says Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, but I’ve got three books that say the holidays are the sexiest (or naughtiest) time of the year. For today’s Book Hooks, I’m sharing a super short snippet from one of those holiday romances. Enjoy, and be sure to grab your copy or read Horse Mountain Heat on Kindle Unlimited.
Horse Mountain Heat
Horse Mountain Heat eventually became the kick-off story in my Horse Mountain Shifters series, but the story was originally a “stocking stuffer” holiday romance.
Curvy cutie Scarlett was expecting an engagement ring for Christmas but caught her boyfriend in bed with another woman instead. Heartbroken and humiliated, she rents a cabin in the mountains to spare the family her yuletide misery. Just next door, sexy cowboy Davis Banks takes one look at Scarlett and knows he found a woman worth mounting. Ho! Ho! Ho! If Scarlett will open Davis’s package, she might just have a Merry Christmas after all.
After pausing for a moment to calm her breathing, she opened the door.
Davis was dressed in a similar but different shirt, still plaid but thicker and he’d added a jean jacket. His butt-hugging jeans looked about the same but were a touch darker, and he still had on his trademark hat. “Hey there, did I come at a bad time?”
Nervously, Scarlett smoothed her damp hair. “No, I was just bored enough to start playing cards by myself. I’m glad you stopped by.”
Davis’s face lit up and he shuffled nervously. “You think you might be up for going for a ride with me?” He moved to the side, pointing out a quarter horse hitched to a shiny-red sleigh.
She laughed, covering her mouth as her heart fluttered beneath her breast. “What kind of fool would I have to be to turn down a sleigh ride at Christmas? Can you give me a sec to dry my hair and throw on some heavier clothes?” She stepped to the side, motioning for him to come in and take a seat.
“Yes, ma’am, take your time,” he said, removing his hat as he entered.
“Just have a seat anywhere,” she replied before scurrying off to get ready.
