I was tagged by Annie to do the Hunkie Hero and it will probably come as no surprise to anyone who mine is.
“Stay still!” Derek swallowed hard, his gaze traveling to the lush display of her breasts. “You and your…research.” He said the word as if it were obscene. His hand covered her breast, his palm rubbing over the nipple until it formed a tight bud. He tried to let her go, but his body wouldn’t obey. Every nerve screamed rebelliously. He wanted more. He would have given everything he owned just to grind himself inside her. Breathing harshly through his teeth, he fought to contain his desire.
“I wanted to be someone other than myself,” Sara said in defiant misery. “The kind of woman that you would…dance with…and desire. And even now…I don’t regret what I’ve done. You may not feel any attraction for Sara Fielding, but al least you felt something for the woman I pretended to be, and that—“
“You don’t think I want you?” he asked hoarsely.
“I knew when you refused to kiss me this morning-“
“That’s what this is about? You wanted revenge because I didn’t…” Craven seemed to choke on the words. When he managed to speak again, his voice was tainted with a cockney twang. “It was enow for you that I’ve ached like a drawn dog ever since you came ‘ere-“
“Drawn dog?” she repeated in confusion.
“Pulled away before the rutting’s finished.” He clenched his hands on either side of her face, glaring at her. “I wanted you this morning, you little tease. I’ve wanted to do you over since the first time I… Be still!”
He snarled the last two words with a roughness that made her cringe. She stopped squirming at once.
Swallowing hard, he forced himself to continue. “Don’t move, or I won’t be able to stop myself. Listen to me. I’m going to let go of you…and you’re going to leave. For good. Don’t come back to the club.”
You may have noticed this phenomenon. And I don't think I'm the only one that suffers from it - fortunately. I seem to buy more books than I read. I hope someday that balances out better but until it does - books that will soon arrive in the mail

I first saw this one at Barbara’s blog and being shallow, I loved the cover. Then I read the storyline and it sounded very interesting. Unlike many others, I love a good ‘destined mates’ storyline and I quite enjoy werewolf stories so I was sold. It sat lonely in my cart until I added more.
Who is learning more, the novice? Or the master? Countess Meredith du Chevalier, a widow with a reputation for being sexually adventurous, is intrigued when she is approached by a gentleman who wishes her to "make a man" of his son. Sensing a passionate man beneath Christopher Whitby'’s reserved exterior, Meredith takes on the challenge, inviting the botanist to her country home to revitalize her abandoned greenhouse. Chris finds people to be a chaotic, animalistic species, and has chosen to devote his life to the study of plants. One kiss from the vivacious countess, however, and his inner animal is aroused. But lust is only a fraction of what he feels for the vulnerable woman hiding behind a brittle fade. He resolves to coax her to grow until her petals unfurl in a glorious bloom. To her surprise, Meredith finds Chris brings much more to life than just fallow soil. But just as their love begins to thrive, he learns about the secret arrangement. Meredith must risk her heart for the most dangerous lesson of all-love.
Although I haven’t read many Bonnie Dee books, the one I did, Bone Deep, blew me away and I kept my eye out for when this one came out in print form. It also has been in my cart for a while…waiting
When the duke of Rothay and the earl of Manderville make a foolish and scandalously public wager over which of them is the more skillful lover, the firmly respectable and notoriously unavailable Lady Caroline Wynn makes the even more shocking offer to serve as judge. The trio all harbor complex secrets of their own, and as they discreetly begin the judging process far away from the keen eyes of society gossips, more than the lady's reputation and the gentlemen's pride are at risk from their growing passions.
It’s the talk of the town.
To everyone’s surprise, however, what begins as an immoral proposition turns into a shocking lesson in everlasting love…
I had seen this one but it was Stacy’s review that convinced me I needed to get it. So being totally self-indulgent when it comes to books, I ordered it.

This cover just calls to me. And the storyline sounds right up my alley. I can hardly wait to get my hands on this one. I’m thinking Tuesday just might be the day!!
