I'm not the man you're hoping I am.
The first time I saw her, she wore her youth like a designer gown. Tailor made to fit her like a second skin. Her innocence obvious even as her body screamed sin.
Two things that spoke to the bastard lingering inside me.
Young and eager, she served herself up to me, a delectable dessert on a gilded tray. I took from her what only one man would ever get to have, and then when it was time, I walked away.
I tried to tell you, I'm the villain of her story.
But now she's here, broken by a past I had nothing to do with and damned to a future with a man she doesn't love. Her family sees her as nothing more than a pawn.
She wants more. And I’m the only one that can give it to her.
Don't waste your sympathy on him. He'll get over it. As my brother he should have known, I don't share well with others.
What? I warned you—I’m not the hero here.
But I am the man she needs.

No One Needs To Know
Mark Twain said, “Write what you know.”
So, I did.
What I knew was my smoke show of a neighbor was the epitome of temptation, even when he’s not mowing his lawn shirtless. I also knew that he’s the very definition of off limits, since he’s my son’s baseball coach and the father of his best friend.
What’s a girl to do?
Open a blank document on her computer and write down all the thoughts running through her filthy mind, that’s what.
Now, my small town is abuzz with gossip over the muse inspiring my latest romance novel.
I just followed the sage advice of a famous author—one who also had a lot to say about the forbidden. And if there’s anything more forbidden than Carter Moore, would you let me know?

He Said, She Said
The day I met Molly Murphy was riddled with moments where it felt like common sense was yelling at me to stay away from the knockout redhead. Her sassy little mouth had me hooked. Her plump lips and sharp tongue made me think of all unsavory things I could do with both.
I know what you’re thinking, what could have possibly derailed such an immediate attraction? A couple of things, actually. She was born the same year I started high school, for one. The bigger issue, however, is her boss. Turns out that prick, is me. The second that I found out I sign her pay checks; she became off limits.
So, imagine my surprise when I hear that I’ve been banging her harder than a screen door in a hurricane. In a small town like Love Georgia, the rumor mill practically supplies the town’s electricity.
I resisted temptation for a year, but now I don’t think I can fight it anymore.
Hell, if everyone is already talking about us, why not make it true?
