A Taste of Release Me When the Sun Goes Down


Four days until Release Me When the Sun Goes Down is out!

As promised, here is an excerpt that goes with this teaser:

*Anja and Rob steal a few private moments together*

“Hey, sleepyhead.” I sat on the edge of Rob’s bed to shake him awake. Normally I liked to let him sleep in until he naturally rose, but Jenessa had taken Maggie out shopping and Hanna was upstairs playing Texas Hold ‘Em with Lee, so we had some relative privacy for the moment.

“Hey,” he murmured, his voice low and roughened with sleep. “Something amiss?”

“Nope, just thought I’d ask you something to help settle a bet.”

His brows crinkled closer in confusion. “What kind of bet?”

“You do like the ladies, don’t you?”

“Come again?”

“Jenessa was wondering, and seeing as how I haven’t been close enough to you to tell lately…”

That’s as far as I got before he grabbed hold of me with one arm and pulled me into the bed beside him, growling, “I’ll show you how much I like the ladies.” He covered my neck with raspy kisses, making me giggle uncontrollably until we settled under the comforter, my hair half strewn across my face as I fought for breath.

“Hullo,” he rumbled, brushing the strands away from my forehead.

I smiled up at him, my arms sliding around his waist. “Hi.”

“You shouldn’t be in here like this.” But he didn’t make any move to let me go.

“I know. It’s only Lee and Hanna in the house though, their hearing isn’t as good.”

“It is with you making such a ruckus.”

“I could always say you did something funny to make me laugh.”

“Because I’m known for acting the comedian?” He raised a single brow.

“Then don’t tickle me with your scruff and I won’t be so loud. When’s the last time you shaved anyway?”

“I thought you liked me like this.”

“I do yesterday or tomorrow, today is that super prickly stage,” I said, rubbing my jaw along the side of his.

“I see,” he said seriously. “And how will you explain what I done to make this sound?” In the space of a breath he ducked under the comforter, tugging up the corner of my shirt to nip at the tender skin underneath my ribs. He was probably going for the tease, but the second I arched up under him it became something else. His mouth closed over my flesh, no longer tickling, but kissing and nuzzling his way back up to my neck. This time it didn’t tickle one bit as my head lolled to the side, giving him better access.

“So soft…” he murmured against my skin, pressing intimately against me and my legs parted to accept him. This was dangerous, and I never wanted it to end. Rob’s lips closed over mine and I moaned against his mouth. I couldn’t help it, I wanted to taste him so badly.

“We have to stop,” he whispered, even as his hands skimmed lower.

“I know.” But neither one of us did.

He was the one to break the silence as my hand wrapped around his length, hard and ready for me, and I laid a finger to his lips. “Shh, the only way this works is if we’re absolutely silent. Or do you want me to stop?”

He looked up at me, helpless to the passion clouding his hazel eyes when I held him in my grasp. “Don’t stop,” he breathed. “Don’t ever stop.”
