bookdescriptionSassy, smart, and sexy, former supermodel-turned-tech guru Rubi Russo has it all—looks, money, confidence and freedom. Her life is a whirlwind of fast cars and fleeting affairs—and she likes it that way. With a past like Rubi’s, forever isn’t part of her vocabulary. So when studly Renegade stuntman Wes Lawson wants to take their friendship to the next level, she’s all out.

Raised a simple country-boy, W es knows the brazen Rubi isn’t his type. But after spending time with her, he discovers she’s everything he’s ever wanted in a woman. To win her wild rebel heart, he’ll have to prove he sees behind her smokescreen to all the goodness she tries to hide. Then it’s just a matter of crushing her fears, shattering her barriers, and convincing her that loving him is everything she’s been missing in her life, too.

Piece of cake.


excerptAs soon as they stepped out the front door, Wes slipped his arm fully around her waist and pulled her the opposite direction of her car.

Her heart kicked. “Wes—”

He sidestepped into an alley bordering Crossroads and pushed her against a wall, then leaned his body into hers. All that warm muscle pressed into her, clouding her mind. Banked desire swelled in a hot wave and her entire body tingled to life. She barely managed to keep her hands pressed against his chest instead of wrapping them around his neck to pull his head down. Barely kept herself from sliding his zipper down and hiking a thigh to his hip, opening just enough to take him inside her body.

“Wes, come on.” She sounded as breathless as she felt.

“If you don’t go to Stilettos for sex, why do you go? There are hundreds of clubs in LA, Rubi. Why Stilettos?”

“It’s none of your—”

He bent his head and kissed her. This wasn’t anything like the sweet start he’d used in the car. His mouth was heavy and hot. His lips demanded she respond. She shouldn’t. She knew she shouldn’t. But her mouth just…did.

Damn, but she loved the way he kissed. Every slid of his lips, every stroke of his tongue smooth and confident and lust-filled. Just the right pressure, depth and tilt. Just the right mix of sensual and sinful. She could easily spend hours kissing this man.

Which was why she pushed against his chest and pulled her head back. “Don’t start that again.”

“Why do you go to Stilettos, Rubi?”

She heaved a breath and blurted out the truth, “Because it’s easy to pick men up there.”

“Baby, it’s easy for you to pick up men anywhere.”

“Not the kind who only want what I want.”

His eyes narrowed. “Sex.”

A lead fist sat at the middle of her chest. She didn’t respond. She didn’t have to. They both knew he was right. He eased one thigh deeper between her legs until the thick muscle pressed her sex and his heat tore through his jeans. The rigid line of his cock rode her hip, making her throat dry. Completely against her will, her eyes closed on an exhale of pleasure. Want tightened a strap around her chest. Need stretched a fiery rope from her shoulders through her hips.

Wes’s growl brought her eyes open. His face was taut, his jaw jumping, his eyes fiery with lust. She desperately wanted to look into his face with this wicked expression as he fucked her. Drove deep and hard. Hammered her until she shattered.

“You’ll go pick up a stranger for a one-night stand,” he said, “but you won’t say yes to me?”

She couldn’t think, caught between needing to push back and needing to sink in. “You aren’t interested in one night. And I’m not interested in more. Can’t you see the problems that would cause?”

He didn’t answer, but he was thinking. The determination and cunning was back in his eyes. “So why hasn’t the waiter seen you in a while? How long has it been since you were there?”

“I don’t know,” she snapped, irritated. Turned on. Frustrated. “I don’t keep it on my calendar.”

“A week? Two?” He pressed his thigh higher and rocked against her. Currents of pleasure shot from her sex to her chest and expanded in hot pressure. Rubi fisted his T-shirt. “A month? More? How long?”

“More…I think. I don’t know.” She was using all her concentration not to rock against the thickly muscled thigh between her legs. “It doesn’t matter how long it’s been. I’ve been busy. And I don’t need it. I haven’t wanted it.”

A knowing hot look crept into his eyes just before he moved his thigh. His heat and pressure rubbed her clit in a long, slow rocking slide. Fire lept through her sex, across hips and climbed into her lower belly. She clutched his shirt tighter. “Wes…”

His name came as more of a plea than a warning and Rubi’s eyes closed as she bit her lip against a moan.

“I think you both need it and want it,” he murmured, his lips close to her ear. “But I think you need it and want it with me. And I’m not at the club. I’m hanging with Lexi and Jax, so that’s where you are.”

She huffed a disgusted sound. “The arrogance is not attractive.”

“It’s not arrogance. It’s obvious. And ridiculous to risk yourself with strangers when I’m right here. Ready, willing, and plenty able.” He pulled his head back and looked into her eyes. “Let’s make an arrangement so you can get on with your day. If you need or want sex, you come to me.”



Sometimes fun, sometimes naughty. Always romantic.

I am a NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author writing under the pseudonym Skye Jordan for my Author Skye Jordan Picmore … sexually heated … works.

My Skye Jordan novels are all about enjoying that little wild streak we all have, but probably don’t let out often enough. About those fantasies we usually don’t get the opportunity to indulge. About stretching limits, checking out the dark side, playing naughty and maybe even acting a little wicked. They’re about escape and fun and pleasure and romance.

And, yes, even love. Because even as Skye Jordan I’m just a happily ever after kinda gal. (Or, in some cases, happily for the foreseeable future.)
