Rising Bounty By Author KD Jones
Book 3 in the Inter-Galactic Bounty Hunters Series
By Author KD Jones
Abe Connor hates liars. In his line of work as a bounty hunter, he’s met a lot of them. He’s been lied to by some of the best, but the bartender working at his friend’s new club has to be one of the worst liars he’s ever met. He knows that she is lying about her life. He should move on and find someone else, but he can’t get the woman off his mind. She’s a mystery that needs solving and he’s just the man with the skills to do it — and he’s up for the task.
Roxanne Stone has been on the run with her daughter for a really long time, moving place to place to escape a violent past. When her friend offers her a job with great pay and benefits at her new nightclub, she couldn’t afford to turn it down. She is used to the riffraff at the shady bars where she had worked in the past, but what she isn’t prepared for is the attraction to one hot bounty hunter who continually asks her personal questions that she can’t answer.
As Abe grows closer to finding out the truth surrounding Roxanne, he inadvertently places her in danger from her past. Will he be able to protect her? Will she make a run for it and leave everything she worked so hard for behind? Will these two stubborn and suspicious people be able to overcome their distrust and allow their feelings for one another to grow into something more? Abe and Roxanne will find out that there is always a price to pay for Rising Bounty.
“Looking at me that way.”
He chuckled. “What way is that?”
“Like you — want to do more than swim.”
He stepped forward and lifted her up in his arms. “I do want more, but I’ll settle for a swim for now.”
“Put me down.” She kicked her legs but couldn’t stop herself from laughing. She wrapped her arms around his neck as Abe splashed into the water.
“Ye wanted me to put ye down, right?” Abe had a suspicious sparkle in his eyes.
“Don’t you dare…”
He winked right before he threw her up into the air. She came down splashing and holding her breath at the last minute. When she came up for air, she was sputtering and spitting water.
“You are in so much trouble!” She sent a big splash toward him but he ducked down under the water. When he didn’t come back up right away, she looked around her. “Abe?” Then she felt something tickling her leg under the water. Oh god, what if it’s a snake? Just as she was about to yell for Abe again, she felt a hand on her leg pulling her off balance. She went under again.
She came up again sputtering water. “Damn it, Abe!” She wiped her wet hair from her face. Abe wrapped his arms around her waist, pulling her against his chest. Her nipples were hardening.
“I can’t wait to be with ye again.” He kissed her.
She couldn’t help but respond to him. Her body seemed to memorize him, the feel of him. “Abe, we can’t do this now.”
He helped her wrap her legs around his waist. “I just want to hold ye, touch ye.” He kissed her like he couldn’t stop himself.
She responded the same. It was like he was a drug to her, and she relished the addiction. She looked up from the kiss and saw that Abe had moved them closer to some trees that blocked the view to the cabin.
“I’m ready,” Abe whispered against her ear.
“Ready for what?” She asked, tilting her head back to give him access to her neck.
“To have ye again.”
