This week’s Tuesday features my all-new release, Trust Me! This second book in the Southern Nights series is fraught with suspense, secrets, and a sexy alpha hero who drives his heroine crazy. Don’t believe me? Take a look:
Before she’d taken two steps past the screen door, he was reaching for her hand.
Maddie jerked back hard. “What is it with you always touching me?”
You need to get used to me touching you. I intend to do it a lot.
“It’s instinct.” The truth. He hadn’t even thought about it; his natural inclination had been to take her hand. What was so horrible about that?
Maddie crossed her arms over her chest, plumping the mounds under her thin cotton tee in a way he had a hard time believing wasn’t intentional. One glance into her eyes told him she hadn’t a clue how much the move made him want to stop talking so damn much and put their mouths to better use.
Yeah, not endearing. He’d keep that to himself.
“You didn’t answer my question.”
Because he’d lost track of the conversation. Breasts—hers, anyway—did that to him. “What question?”
Maddie inched backward. Jack inched forward.
“Why are you always touching me?”
He snorted. “Because I need to? Because I want to so damn much I just can’t breathe? I don’t know why. Does it matter?”
“Yes.” Maddie ducked her head, her bangs hanging forward to cast a shadow over her eyes. “I think you just don’t like someone saying no to you.”
“I don’t like you saying no to me, but I can be patient. We’ll get past it.”
He couldn’t miss her eye roll. “You really are an arrogant jackass.”
He laughed. “I think you like me more than you want to let on.” He reached for her again.
A low growl left Maddie’s lips. She smacked his hand away.
Jack’s laugh got deeper as he shook out the sting in his hand. “Sorry, wildcat. You make it too hard to resist.”
Moving to cross the road toward his truck, Maddie shot a rude gesture his way. He had her hand in a secure grip before she could drop it back to her side.
“You do realize this constitutes a date,” he said.
Maddie tugged against his hold. “I don’t date customers.”
“Fine, you’ve given me the obligatory rebuttal. Can we go eat ice cream now?”

A woman on a mission…
Maddie Baker spent four years seeking vengeance against the man whose abuse destroyed her life. That search has led her to a small town outside Atlanta and a missing teenage girl. Nothing will stand in the way of her mission, including a jackass of an ex-soldier who reawakens emotions best left to die.
A man on the hunt…
Jack Quinn learned to recognize trouble in the marines, and he sees it in Maddie the minute he lays eyes on her tending bar. Her secrets are hidden deep, but secrets are his specialty, and peeling away her barriers only makes him want her more. He’ll do whatever it takes to get her to trust him with her body and her heart.
An old threat whose time has come…
Staying hidden kept Maddie safe, but the search for justice will bring her into the open and face-to-face with her treacherous past. Risking her life is one thing, but risking her heart is another. In love and in danger, she must trust Jack to lead her—and pray they both come out alive.
