A smile lit her face, and she rose up on her toes to hug him. “Thank you. For everything you’ve already done. Thank you.”

Feeling unsettled, he patted her back before stepping away, “I haven’t done much yet. Chauffeured a pretty woman out to my house in the midst of a snowstorm, that’s about it.”

“What you see as small, means the world to me.” With that, she headed off down the hallway, her hospital gown hanging open in the back and giving him tantalizing views of her thin back and perfectly round ass. The panties she wore were plain white cotton, but they turned him on more than any piece of lace or silk ever had.

Fucking hell, he was in serious trouble.

Frost Bitten

 

Dr. Quinn Jameson has secured his future by submerging himself in his career, but no amount of money in the world can ease his loneliness. Polar bear shifters aren’t pack creatures, but his soul craves more out of life. When a feisty female tiger shifter begs him for help, he’s unable to resist, and finds himself embroiled in a dangerous situation.

Aubrey Celine is in a bad spot. Pregnant and on the run, she’s out of options until she wakes up in the hospital under the care of a delicious looking Doctor. Can she trust another man after what her ex has put her through? Or has her heart frozen solid?

In the midst of an epic blizzard, these two strangers must rely on each other to stay alive, but every time they’re alone the heat between them could melt the ice caps. How far will they go to avoid getting frost bite?

Excerpt:

“You’re going to stay here with me until we figure out how to protect you from him. This is a private estate with a security system. If anyone comes on the property without permission, I get a notification on my phone. We’ll know he’s coming before he gets here, and we’ll be able to stop him.”

“I truly, truly appreciate that, Quinn,” Aubrey’s eyes met his, and the sorrow in their depths tore at him, “but I can’t put you in the middle of this. Well, any more than you already are. It’s not fair.”

“You’re not putting me anywhere. I’m putting myself in the middle. I’ve spent my career trying to protect pregnant mothers and their children through science, and I’ll be damned if the one time I can physically protect one, I fail.” He’d never really thought of himself as a superhero, but the advances he’d made in the world of obstetrics were monumental in saving hundreds of lives each year. While it was easy for him to speak about, it was more difficult for him to accept his own role in the big scheme of things. In Aubrey’s case, he was the only thing standing between her and imminent danger. “Let me help you, Aubrey. For your son’s sake if nothing else.”

Unable to resist when tears of relief began to flow down her cheeks, Quinn found himself wrapping her tightly in his arms, pressing her wet face to his chest. Her soft scent flooded his senses, and he let his eyes drift shut, focused only on providing comfort to the small, frightened woman.

Her hair was downy soft, and he palmed the back of her head, petting her gently like his mother used to do to him and his sister when they were young. The whole time, he was all too aware that Aubrey was not a child. Her full breasts grazed his chest, unable to press against him completely because of her extended abdomen. Said abdomen suddenly began to dance against his belly and he pulled back.

“Was that?”

 “Junior here seems to approve of you,” she giggled. “Honestly, Quinn, I can’t thank you enough. When I saw the guard had left the door unlocked, I didn’t think past getting out. I didn’t consider the weather or how I was going to escape the best tracker in Colorado. I just knew I had to go.”

“The best tracker in Colorado?” Quinn snorted in disbelief and rolled his eyes, “He certainly thinks highly of himself, huh?”

“We both know lions have an extremely keen sense of smell…”

“No better than polar bears,” he said, hearing his own voice get a little growly. “Try scenting prey hundreds of miles away in a blizzard. Bet that pansy-ass lion would freeze to death before he’d starve.”

“One can only hope,” Aubrey giggled and stepped completely free of his arms.

Already missing her sweet body against him, Quinn took a seat on the stool right next to her and propped his chin on his hand.

“So, how big is the Grisom pack these days?”

“I’m not really sure.” Frowning as she took another drink of her milk, Aubrey looked thoughtful. “There were at least a hundred people at the barbecue, but most were guests. In truth, I think I’ve only seen a dozen or so actual pack members.”

“So, the likelihood of an army storming my castle is slim. I’ll refrain from calling on the dragon.”

Her laughter rang through the kitchen, echoing back to his ears a couple of times and making him grin. Inside his bear reacted like a small cub, rolling and preening with pleasure. It was the strangest reaction Quinn had ever experienced. Why was this woman so different? What made her so special to his bear?

Excerpt:

“All set. Your friend is currently searching the neighborhood for his runaway fiancée; he believes you went AWOL, against medical advice,” he explained as he started the ignition. “Stay down a little longer if you don’t want to be spotted.”

FB teaser 4Aubrey did as she was told, hunching down on the buttery-soft bench seat with only the car’s luxurious interior and one delicious-smelling man to look at. Trapped in this enclosed space with Dr. Jameson, she became keenly aware of her body’s attraction to him. Damn hormones.

“It’s normal,” he murmured.

“I’m sorry?”

“The arousal. It’s normal during pregnancy. Your hormones are a bit chaotic.” He glanced over at her, and Aubrey felt her face heat up. “I just didn’t want you to be embarrassed about it.”

“Well, you majorly failed at that, Doc,” she grumbled.

“My name is Quinn. Considering I just helped you escape a dastardly villain, I think we should be on first name terms.” Several more minutes passed before he spoke again.

“We just crossed the river, so you should be okay to sit up now,” he instructed, turning the car off the main road.

“Where are we going?” Aubrey struggled to get her bearings in an unfamiliar part of the city.

“My house.” He looked her way again and shifted the gears flawlessly. “Unless you have another destination in mind?”

“I didn’t have any destination in mind. I just had to get out. Honestly, I didn’t even pause to consider the risk of leaving when I saw my opening. I just ran,” her voice cracked, and she swallowed the lump in her throat. She had no idea where the out of character streak of fearlessness had come from. Alex had been threatening her the entire time he’d held her captive, and until the moment she’d noticed the lock wasn’t secured, she’d never even seriously considered making an escape attempt.

“I know who you’re running from, but what I don’t understand is why? What did this guy, Alex, do to you?”

“He kidnapped me.”

He waited near the door as she put her purse away and kicked off her shoes; she winced when her back was twerked in an awkward angle.

“Tell me, did the back spasms start after your vacation in Afghanistan?” he asked.

“Good guess,” she said, laughing dryly. “Not the best souvenir or the best vacation for that matter.”

“I’d have to agree. I wanted to bring back a sand spider, but customs wouldn’t let me. No animals, vegetables, minerals, or giant insects apparently.”

What’s Missing From Romance Novels?

A look back…

Lori King Books

So I was plotting a new story the other day for a project I’m working on, and here is how it went…

  •  Heroine: She is either well to do, or has absolutely nothing. She is also beautiful, but doesn’t know it, or knows it and hates it. She is never a plain Jane with freckles and cellulite that has a minimal 401k, and a modest savings account to support her and her three cats.
  •  Hero(s): They are either well to do or have absolutely nothing. They are gorgeous, cocky, protective, sensual, perfect….unattainable for the rest of us real women.  They never had to determine whether or not they will pay their water bill or purchase comic books, and they never spend a Friday night playing the X-box online with their buddies.
  •  They instantly fall madly in love with the heroine and walk around with a rock hard erection for the…

“Zoey Carson.  Wow!  I haven’t seen you since you were in pigtails,” Dalton said.  His slightly shell-shocked appearance soothed her ego a little and she sighed.

“Ah yes, Dalton the demi-God who broke dozens of teenage hearts in Stone River when he left for medical school!”  She threw back dramatically.  His laughter was warm and he stepped forward wrapping her in a hug.

“Damn it’s good to see you too, woman.  You grew up good!”  Dalton’s hand rested on her hip with his arm holding her close, in an affectionate sort of way, as he looked her over.

The Keegan brothers finally come together after spreading themselves across the globe for more than a decade.  Each fighting his own personal battle with the past and future, but there is no question that Zoey turns them all on.  Who will risk the pain of baring their soul for the promise of a happy future, and who will succumb to their weaknesses?

How to Write a Book Review

It’s still just that easy!

Lori King Books

I recently had a conversation with my “Brats” about how to write a book review. Some said they feel out of their element trying to express themselves ina  review, so I wanted to just post something that I found that I think sums it up. Write A Review

It’s really that simple. I promise. I know that some authors say they don’t read their reviews because they won’t change their writing style no matter what the criticism is, but I disagree with that stance. There is NO perfect author, nor is there a perfect book. There are books that I love to pieces and books I’ve never been able to finish. No matter what the subject or who the author, every single book touches readers differently. Some will love it, while others will hate it with a mad passion. Either way, most authors want to know what their readers thought. So keep it…

R.L. Merrill started writing in 2009 in order to deal with some not-so-pleasant life situations and to escape from the icky parts of being a responsible adult. It’s turned into a very fulfilling way to spend her minuscule amount of free time and has mostly kept her sane. Her stories involve real life struggles and the romance that gets us through. Her novels are influenced and inspired by her own experiences as well as those of folks around her that she admires and respects for their strength and perseverance. She’s lived in the San Francisco Bay Area her whole life, with the exception of the four very good years she spent in rural Iowa during college. She’s been an educator for twenty-three years as both a teacher and school counselor, and has spent time working closely with police and non-profit agencies as a Domestic Violence Victim Advocate. She is a wife, mother, daughter, sister, tattoo collector, Metal fan, movie geek and book nerd, and she currently presides over a horde of animals consisting of two cats, a dog, various fish varieties, and a ball python.
