Blurb from Make Me Surrender:

She has a proposition…to win their attention, passion, hearts. 

Like a well-rehearsed dance team, Mercy and Jill turned to the left. Beyond the saloon was a cabin Mercy hadn’t noticed. Travis and Dutch crossed its brief porch, filled trash bags in each hand, their chests tantalizingly bare.

“Wow,” Jill whispered.

Mercy leaned into her friend for support, dizzy at the sight of all those male muscles. Travis’s chest was deliciously broad, his hard pecs lightly dusted with dark hair. It trickled in a line down his firm torso to beneath the waistband of his low-slung jeans. The tat on his bicep was pure male. Bold and wild.

Mercy whimpered then studied Dutch. She whimpered again.

His chest was nothing but smooth, golden skin, his tiny nipples the color of milk chocolate. At the top of the stairs, he stopped and turned, facing the cabin’s front door.

Mercy sucked in a breath. A stunning tat covered his entire back from shoulders to waist, even spilling onto his biceps. Most of it was of a soaring eagle. The rest, lines and whorls.

Jill moaned. “You are so lucky.”

Mercy’s cheeks hurt from grinning so hard. She moved closer, unable to help herself.

Travis reached the bottom step. Finally seeing her, he stopped so abruptly Dutch ran into him.

“Hey,” Dutch complained, his voice carrying across the front lot. “Move.”

Travis didn’t budge. He regarded Mercy’s face and mouth, lingering there.

Vicki Batman, sassy writer said...

Hi, Tina! and thank you for doing the Q&A with the Princesses. I like Argo a lot, too. But you are right, flip flops rule. There was a day, though, when high heels were my fav... Then the ripped ankle came along. Hugs!

Kelly L Lee said...

Seriously, I cannot wait until someone answers the Q&A with a "Yes" to streak or not... :) Super-hot excerpt, Tina~!

Tina Donahue said...

I know what you mean, Vicki - I cannot wear high heels for long - they kill me!

Tina Donahue said...

Thanks, Kelly! Don't think I'll be streaking anytime soon. :)
