9_2 Cover_Sweet Sexy SadieFrom the first time Sadie’s eyes met those of Brody McKenna in the hot Sierra Madre Mountains, theirs was a potent attraction—not gentle, slow, and easy, but hot, hard, and all-consuming. The daughter of a dysfunctional family, Sadie had dreams no man could wrench from her with hot sex and an all-consuming passion. She’d challenge this alpha male with all the strength she possessed. But her red hair, fiery temperament, and indomitable spirit obsessed Brody…and he knew he had to find a way to show her he was more than he appeared and convince her to make a life with him.



Brody prowled through the boulders and sparse timber. Heat from the sun warmed the earth. He’d just finished his daily run and was about to shift back to his human form when he caught sight of the sexy lady in short shorts. He lifted his head and sniffed, smelling the wind and finding the heady scent of lemon in the air.

My God! The sight of the girl sent shock waves reverberating through him. Tremors swept through his body, his heart lurching then stopping for a split second. Brody needed to see this lady close up. He’d had dreams about her—he just didn’t know who she was or what she was going to be to him. And he’d never clearly seen her face. He was about to do just that. He’d never thought he would meet the woman he’d been dreaming about. And there she was, standing beside her overheated 1990’s mustang.

His heart screamed at him. His senses whirled on overload and every nerve ending felt as if it snapped. Currents of electricity jolted through him in a tat-tat-tat machine gun blast. The sensations were even more intense than when he shifted to his jaguar form. He found his clothes then changed into human form, hopping on one foot as he tried to get both feet into his jeans. Then jumping as if that movement would help the zipper close.

Wiping sweat from his brow then checking to see if he’d fastened his pants, he sauntered toward the girl who had let her car overheat in the desert. He wasn’t quite sure what he was going to say, but he’d figure that out as soon as possible. Nice to meet you seemed boring.

A good pick up line here would be nice. Every rational and coherent thought vanished from his head. Numb and empty, he stood behind her and rocked back on his heels. Sweat beaded on his forehead then trickled down the side of his face. He couldn’t take his eyes off her cute little butt, which was sticking up in the air as she seemed to study the engine of her car. When she shifted feet and her rear swayed from one side to the other, he knew he needed to put his hands there, on her hips and oh so gorgeous curves.


“Uhh…” he began.

She jumped. “Oh!” Then turned and her smile melted his once jaded heart. Damn and double damn. This was all good, so good. And she was real good.

“Need some help?” Brody asked as he pointed to the car and the sizzling engine that appeared to need water. Lord, but he needed some of that H2O stuff. His parched mouth cried out for help and liquid. All his smooth evaporated.

    Hello again, Christine. Just got back from a short vacay so thought I’d play some “catch up” on your tour dates. I love shifter stories and as your first commenter said, that line about “All his smooth evaporated” caught my interest and kept it. I simply MUST read this story. 🙂 Glad to meet another paranormal author about shifters.
