Irish Eyes Excerpt

As promised, here's a tiny taste of my upcoming release, Irish Eyes. I hope you enjoy it!

“So, Miss Maddy, what do you think of our Crag?” Shamus had a voice that would charm a rabid woodchuck. It was the kind of soft, sultry voice that made Maddy quiver despite the warm night.

“I like it…the stars are gorgeous. So close.” She wrapped her hands around herself and slid her hands along her upper arms. It wasn’t cold, but she felt a whole herd of goose bumps rise on her body.

He moved nearer to her in the big truck. The wide bench seat was large enough to hold two more adults, but when he moved to sit beside her it became a cozy spot.

“They’re not the only things that are gorgeous tonight, colleen,” he said, his voice stirring the hair that lay against her forehead. His warm breath smelled minty—refreshing—and she wondered what it would be like to taste Shamus’s mouth on hers.

Maddy didn’t have to wonder for long.

Circling her with his strong arms, Shamus pulled her body close against his as his mouth dropped to cover hers. In the first instant she learned that he was skilled at more than driving. His tongue danced with hers, sometimes leading, sometimes following, but always in step.

Maddy ached for his touch—for anyone’s touch. It had been far too long since she’d been held. Since she’d been made love to.

Moistness grew between her legs and she fought the urge to squirm against the seat of the truck.

“I’ve wanted to do this ever since I first saw you the other day. You looked as sweet as a lamb’s ear in the back seat of my cab—as pretty as a picture.” His tongue slid into her ear before he whispered, “I’ve been hard since I saw you, colleen. Does that shock you?”
