With lives in the balance, what could she do but comply with their demands?
Accountant Jessica Roe kept her head down and always followed the rules. When she discovered possible illegal activity with her employer, she left that job and joined Reynaud and Associates. Life was good, her brother hadn’t asked for money in months and she was now dating Mark Jensen. Within one week: her brother needed money, her old employer was trying to blackmail her, and she was nearly raped and killed. Not only is her savings at risk, but her relationship with Mark, her job with Reynaud and Associates, her friends, and her life.
Mark Jensen worked hard and played harder, preferring one-night stands to anything long term, until he hooked up with the company accountant. Jessie is a sassy, sweet, rule follower with a deep-seated loneliness about her that is unlike any woman he’s dated. She has stolen his heart. Just when Mark had finally convinced Jessie to move in with him, her brother has more than money problems to lay at his sister’s door. Suddenly, Jessie is over her head and making all the wrong decisions while trying to protect her new friends, brother, and lover.
When Jessie’s past and present puts her in the middle of international illegal trade, it will take the whole team to keep her safe while they figure out the details and bring this operation to a crashing halt. This is book two in the Safe and Secure series but can be enjoyed as a standalone.
Publisher’s Note: This adult romance contains elements of mystery, suspense, action, adventure, danger, power exchange and sensual scenes. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase.
Entering the kitchen to the fragrance of bacon frying, and warmed maple syrup, Jessie squealed. “Are you making my favorite breakfast?”
“Yep. Cinnamon French Toast coming up in five.”
“You’re my hero.”
“Hey, I was your hero last night.”
“And that designation has survived the light of day. Congratulations, it’s official.”
She lifted her face to receive his kiss and wasn’t disappointed. Mark was a great lover, but he was an unsurpassed smoocher, caressing her lips as his tongue soothed tender flesh, seeking the dark warmth beyond. He deepened, and then lightened his kiss until there was no option but to separate. The man put his heart and soul in that kiss.
She tasted him from her lips. “Mmm.”
“Woman, you’re going to be the death of me. Now I’m as hard as nails and don’t have time to take care of it. I should swat your behind.”
“No way, I’m sore, but I can offer you a raincheck.” Jessie reached over to snag her plate of breakfast.
“That’s one I’ll be sure to redeem.”
“I’m counting on it.”
Jessie loved Cinnamon French Toast, and she made sounds of satisfaction that would compete with her moans when he loved her.
Mark’s laugh was a bit forced. “I wish I’d chosen another breakfast. You think you know what you’re doing, Minx, but I promise you, I can make you sorry you teased the tiger.”
“I don’t know what you mean?” her innocent-sounding response was anything but, and she loved they could tease. Her past boyfriends were not able to handle it. Mark was made of tougher stuff.
“If this is your way of payback for spanking your ass last night, you go right ahead because I can repeat that little scene tonight if you like.”
Her belly dropped a foot. “No, thank you.” She glanced at his hard-on that was difficult to hide. Yeah, she’d stop.
Meet Alyssa Bailey:
USA Today and International best-selling author, Alyssa Bailey, is a dyed in the wool Texan living amongst the beauty of Southeast Alaska. She lives where the sky meets the mountains; the mountains touch the ocean, and the wildlife frolic on land, sea, and air. Humans, the ultimate interlopers, are wedged in where allowed and are properly thankful for the privilege.
Alyssa loves writing about consensual power exchanges between strong, intelligent, sassy women who are not afraid to make a stand and men confident enough to give his woman space, but Alpha enough to keep her safe.
If she can throw a little mystery, humor, and suspense in her stories, it’s even better. She writes historical and contemporary love stories devised to leave you with that book hangover we crave.
Out of Curiosity…
Where did Jessie come from?
Accounting, of course. Ha-ha Jessie was mentioned in the first book as a quiet, non-descript scene filler and before I knew it, she was taking over one of the ending scenes of Saving Sharlee.
Mark seemed more intense and yet disciplined less than the others. Why?
Mark disciplined for discipline and he wasn’t as much into that as the sexy discipline sessions. He also adjusted his intensity to be with Jessie who was a polar opposite from Sharlee. The things we do for love.
What is one of your favorite things to do?
Have a tea party. We do one at Christmas with all the girls from 0 to 99.
Do you like your men with long or short hair?
LONG. If it is kept neat and clean, I love it flowing down his back.
Beard or mustache?
Both, if you mean on him not her. I love a full beard on some and then some… not so much. Mustache is the same. If it is trimmed neatly and kept clean, I love it. No straggly mess for me.
