Blurb:A past tragedy has left Lily Holmes burdened with a devastating secretâ¦
Since the death of her twin sister, Lily canât bear to be touched. Not accidentally, not casuallyâ¦and certainly not intimately. This makes it impossible for her to confess to her best friend Adam Roberts that sheâs in love with him. She canât give him the sort of relationship he needs, so she watches in silence while he plans his wedding with someone else.
Enter Nikoli Kinkaid, the campus manwhoreâ¦
Nikoli is a self-proclaimed connoisseur of women, and he wants to add Lily to his list of conquests, but she wants nothing to do with himâuntil he makes her an offer she canât refuse. Heâll teach her to enjoy human contact again, giving her a chance to win over Adam, while Nikoli uses all his considerable charm to seduce her.
But Lily raises the stakesâ¦
Lily loves cars. Her late father was a racer, and she grew up under the hood of a car and on the racetrack. Nikoli has a limited edition 1970 Plymouth Barracuda she covets, so she informs him the terms of their deal also require he not sleep with anyone for six months. If he does, sheâll win the car. If she surrenders and ends up in his bed, his beloved âCuda is his to keep.
In an intricate dance of control and surrender, a reluctant friendship becomes something more. Lily begins to crave things she never believed she could, and Nikoli realizes there is more at stake than his reputation.
If Lily overcomes her phobia, will she crave Adamâs touch as sheâs starting to crave Nikoliâs? Or will she only find pleasure from the touch of a semi-reformed manwhore?
So who am I?
Well, Iâm the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesnât love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.
Now, I live in a small town in West Virginia where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierceâ¦lol.
I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.
