I'm in the part of the US where it's bitter cold. So it's time to turn up the heat with an excerpt from Devlin's Grace. First here's the blurb, then the excerpt:
When he rides out of the fog on his motorcycle Gracie Alloway could almost mistake him for a demon rising from the smoke and steam of hell....except she's attracted to him from the first moment.
Devlin is everything she's not - wild and a little wicked but opposites attract because good girl, college student Gracie wants more of this bad boy.
He dreamed up a fantasy woman back in Iraq a lot like Gracie and she evokes a side he hasn't shown anyone in years. She also dares to enter his personal space and take liberties no other woman's dared.
Although he struggles with PTSD and other issues, Gracie won’t run and she refuses to abandon her Devlin.
If she can just tame him and help him battle his demons.....if he can teach her how to live a little bit more, they might just have a chance at a future - together.

He greeted her with a quiet smile, naked as Adam in the Garden of Eden. His lean, scarred body immediately aroused her, all the more because Gracie knew from his expression he’d sloughed away some of his inner darkness for now.
Devlin glanced around the bedroom and grinned. In place of the candles she’d wanted Gracie draped the single bedside lamp with a thin kitchen towel to soften the illumination. The muted light set a similar mood and she’d found a Mannheim Steamroller CD among Dev’s collection so delightful music created some background ambiance. Her earlier desire stirred and with a racy little witch walk, hips swaying, Gracie walked over to him. Without a word, she touched his chest then dropped her hands lower to cup his manhood between her palms. His cock came to life with speed and Devlin kissed her, without artifice and with nothing between them but basic want and sheer need.
His mouth cherished hers, nurtured and nuzzled Gracie’s lips. Tingles danced along her spine and legs. Devlin’s kisses sent electricity through her nipples and turned her pussy moist.
He held her and his hands strayed over her flesh, removing her garments with deft skill. His kisses continued and he moved downward to kiss her breasts until she shivered. Gracie’s fingers fondled Dev’s nipples and when they turned hard beneath her touch, she put her mouth over one to suckle. His moan of pleasure fired her further and for the first time she dropped to her knees.
Gracie took his dick into her mouth and sucked, evoking a new sensation for her, more than a little strange yet she liked it. When it stiffened, she used her lips to caress and Devlin cried out with wordless delight. “Oh, Jesus, babe,” he said, “That’s good, real good. Don’t quit now.”
Unable to answer, Gracie used her tongue and Devlin quivered. She continued until she thought he’d explode in her mouth and withdrew. Dev jerked her to her feet then backed her to the bed. In their haste for fulfillment neither turned down the covers and as soon as she found herself on her back, Gracie opened her legs wide. Devlin dived between them, his cock proud and ready. He entered her hard, swift and sure. On impact, her walls tightened around him to squeeze as he moved within, each thrust bringing a new wave of pure pleasure. Gracie’s body hummed with gladness as the erotic buzz of good sex claimed her.
Their connection rocked them both and they spiraled upward toward satisfaction, each level increasing the intensity of the sensual spasms. Gracie strained against Devlin, clinging and almost crying for release. His guttural noises of bliss brought her home and they came in a wild, spinning rush of ecstasy. During the final burst of orgasm Gracie cried out too and their voices joined in joyful noise, united in body, connected with soul.
