Between the Covers – Hurricane

Today’s Between the Covers is a few lines from my book.

Here is a few lines from Hurricane (Singleton, Book # 1). Enjoy.

Julianne wrenched open the door, gesturing for him to leave. Keenan took her silent urging and passed her. Julianne followed. He turned suddenly, crowding her. Gasping, she stepped back instinctively before she caught herself and stood her ground. Scowling, Julianne glared at him.

“I unsettle you.” His grin was smug.

“You startled me,” she retorted.

“Deny it all you want, but you’re intrigued by what there might be between us. I’m a patient man. I can wait until you come around. You have my number. Call me when you change your mind.” Keenan shrugged, turning, then strode away.

Between the Covers – Sizzling Dare

Today’s Between the Covers is an excerpt from my book.

Here is a excerpt from Sizzling Dare my book in Carly Phillips’ Kindle Worlds – Dare to Love series. Enjoy.

taigecrenshaw_sizzlingdare Jameson rose and came around the table. The predatory grace of his movements made her pulse quicken. She licked her lips. God that man can move.

“Dance.” It wasn’t a question but a demand.

Tiana opened her mouth to refuse but something in his gaze made her rethink it. She slid her hand along his, stifling a shiver as she rose. His firm hold on her made her wonder how it’d feel if… she cut off that thought. Don’t go there Tiana.

Jameson led her to the dance floor. She faced him just as the music changed. The sensual rhythm of Soca filled the air. Jameson partially lowered his lids and a small smile curled his lips. Instinctively Tiana moved her hips then the rest of her body lifting her hands and going with the music. Jameson stared, his gaze moving along her body. It was almost like a physical touch. Tiana thought for a moment about it being a bad idea but ignored it as she continued to move with him. He lifted his head meeting her gaze then moved. Tiana swallowed as she watched him. He moved with the same intensity he had when he played. She couldn’t help but stared at his hips as he rolled them in a motion that should be deemed illegal. A soft chuckle reached her and she lifted her head narrowing her gaze at the expression on his face. It was too knowing and way too smug. He moved to her, sliding his leg between her thighs and jerking her against him. Tiana sank against him moving with him as the music played around them.

Suddenly Jameson turned her, placing her back against his front. She stifled a moan as he moved behind her. His thick erection pressed against her ass. She shifted her legs as her panties dampened. Tiana again licked her lips wanting to feel him bare. She jerked at the thought and stepped away.

“When are you going to stop running from us?” Jameson asked close to her ear.

She shuddered not realizing he had moved with her. Tiana took another step.

“I never took you for a coward,” he spoke again close to her.

Inhaling sharply, Tiana gritted her teeth. She was no coward. Tiana lifted her hands then turned to him and rolled her hips. She saw him gulp and smiled. Moving to him she rocked her body against him before stepping away. She twirled away then back into him, Tiana’s breath caught at the impact of his hard body. Jameson walked her backwards until her back hit the wall. His hold shifted and his hot hands raced down to cup her ass in his palms. Jameson jerked her into his body and rotated his hips in a sensuous glide keeping in beat with the music. Wetness soaked her panties even more. He chuckled. Looking up she saw the knowledge in his eyes of what he was doing to her. In that moment she didn’t care if he knew. She wanted to be under him in the worst possible way. It didn’t matter they were in the middle of bar where anyone could see them. She wanted him with a passion that made her feel reckless.

Leaning deeper into him she felt his erection press against her. Stifling a groan she rested her head on his shoulder inhaling deeply. Hoarding his sweet tangy masculine scent of sandalwood and aroused male.

Rolling his hips in a lazy motion that tantalized her throbbing core through her skirt Jameson whispered in her ear. “Do you want me Tiana?”

The scream of ‘yes’ bubbled in her throat but common sense stifled it. They didn’t like each other and were only here working together to help Terrance. If they got involved and it didn’t work out it would create all kinds of problems. Jameson pressed closer moving his hips in a sinuous motion scattering her thoughts. A moan tore from her throat.

“Do you want me Tiana?” he repeated in the same soft tone.

Gulping to clear her head Tiana looked up at him. Unable to hold it back she blew out a breath and said raggedly. “Yes I want you Jameson…” Pausing to catch her breath she watched the predatory grin spread on his face. “But I can’t have you.”

Shock filtered over his face. Pulling away from him Tiana watched him steadily regret tearing at her. “A relationship between us would be too messy.”

The look of speculation on his face made her wary. She resisted the urge to step back as he leaned into her. “I don’t want a relationship with you Tiana. I want hard…” He kissed the side of her exposed neck. “Deep…” He bit her ear gently. She moaned turning her head to give him more access. “Wet…” He licked her ear as his voice rumbled, “Mind numbing sex as often as possible and every way imaginable.”

Suddenly he kissed her deeply. He stroked his tongue into her mouth. He moved his hands up and down her sides then cupped her aching breasts. She leaned into him rubbing against him. He stepped back. Dazed she looked at him.

He smiled. “When you’re ready for that, come find me.”

Between the Covers – Taken by You

Today’s Between the Covers is an excerpt from my book.

Here is a excerpt from Taken by You (Zander Oaks, Book # 1). Enjoy.

taigecrenshaw_takenbyyou-smWith impatient strides, she walked across the yard to the stables. Opening the side door, she walked to Indigo’s stall. She was surprised it was empty. A sound came from around the corner. Following the sound, she stopped. Her heart raced while her pussy flooded with wetness. Silken, sweat-soaked, sun-kissed skin moved as Jonas threw hay back and forth. He stopped and wiped his forehead. Suddenly, he stiffened and glanced back. Pale gray eyes impaled her. Mouth dry, Lexi tried to remember how to speak.

He turned to face her, and she clenched her fist as she hungrily took in his bare muscular chest. His nipples were a cherry brown. His muscles were full ridges along his ribs, and his stomach was flat. She wanted to lick his navel and nibble upward to suck his nipples.

“Lex, the horses are outside.” His tone was sharp, capturing her attention.

She met his eyes and saw the sheen of disgust there. Ashamed of her ogling him Lexi stiffened, raised her head and gave him a cold look in return.

“What’re you doing here? I saw your truck going to town.”

“I lent it to somebody.” He shrugged, making his muscles ripple.

She nodded and turned. A barely discernible whisper reached her. Unable to believe what she’d heard, she turned back to face him. Lexi strode forward until she was a hairsbreadth from him.

“What did you say?”

“You should never look at any man like that.” Jonas looked her in the eyes, a challenge on his face.

Fury filled her, but she held it down. “First of all, Coulter, you don’t have any say in what I do.”

“This isn’t about—”

She cut him off. “Coulter, you are out of line.” She poked him in the chest after each word.

His eyes narrowed in reaction.

“Don’t you ever talk to me like that again, or I’ll blacken your eye,” she said. “Do you understand me?” Lexi put her hands on her hips.

“Yes, ma’am,” Jonas replied between clenched teeth.

Lexi glared at him, and then turned to leave.

“Stop looking at me with your hungry eyes.” His voice was silken.

Rage bubbled up in her, overcoming her sense. Turning, Lexi slapped him. She regretted it even before the sound of her hand meeting his flesh had faded from the air. His eyes went glittery with anger and purpose. Fear swelled inside Lexi, and she turned and ran out the door. Rounding the corner, she saw the open door leading outside. Reaching it, she gasped, then screamed as hard arms grabbed her around the waist, wrenching her back inside. The door slammed, and she was jerked backward. Squirming, she scratched at his hands and fought to get free.

Suddenly, she was spun around, and her back hit the wood. She felt the rails and knew she was just inside the doorway of one of the rooms the hands used to sleep in when needed. A hard body pressed against hers. Lexi glanced into furious gray eyes.

“Let me go!” she demanded.

“When I’m ready.” His look was arrogant.

He swooped down and covered her lips with his. Lexi stilled, expecting an assault. Instead, he unraveled her with a tender, sensual teasing of her senses. His tongue swept along her lips, seeking entrance. She gasped, slamming her eyes closed, and he took advantage, stroking his tongue into her mouth. His taste rolled over her. It was sweet, musky, and all man. His arms caged her as his body pressed against hers.

In an instant plans change and he has to find a way to outmaneuver the inevitable…

Garret Reid has plans for his days of retirement from the NFL. He’ll miss the rush of the game and winning but it was time to relax. Enjoy a life away from the game and doing absolutely nothing for a while. But an favor for an old friend changes all that. Yet the favor doesn’t turn out as he thought it would. Maura, the woman he’s sent to assist, is stubborn, opinionated, and drives him crazy. She doesn’t appreciate his help and now he finds himself in a predicament. Go back to a life of doing nothing or accept the challenge she sparks within him. Garret is not one to back away from any challenge. Garret can’t decide if he is more drawn to her because of her passion for the center she runs or for the sassy woman who makes him feel things he never has before. Garret doesn’t have a problem letting Maura think she is in charge of things. Now he has a change of plans and he has to find a way to outmaneuver the woman he wants more than anything else.

Maura Maxwell didn’t need some egotistical football player to interfere with her center. She knows his type—inflated ego because they were the supposedly the best at the game and had a few super bowl rings. She wasn’t about to let any of her people get attached. No matter if Garret seems genuine, affable and charming. She didn’t believe it for a minute. No one had the kind of success he had in the sport if they weren’t determined and had some backbone. She would be on her guard and not let him outmaneuver her. Garret might have been the master on the football field but in her world there was only one person in charge—her.

When two strong-willed people find themselves put together due to circumstances they each have an outcome they want but…who will have the best laid plans?
