Greetings, ladies and gentlemen. My new novella, When It’s Right, releases in just two and a half weeks!

She shook her head. “Then let it happen.” She closed her lips on the salty flesh where his shoulder met his neck and sucked, feeling his answering moan as a blooming heat between her legs. “Let it happen.”
