Blurb for
Sweet Sexy Sadie:
From the first time Sadie’s eyes met those of Brody McKenna in the
hot Sierra Madre Mountains, theirs was a potent attraction—not gentle, slow,
and easy, but hot, hard, and all-consuming. The daughter of a dysfunctional
family, Sadie had dreams no man could wrench from her with hot sex and an
all-consuming passion. She’d challenge this alpha male with all the strength
she possessed. But her red hair, fiery temperament, and indomitable spirit obsessed
Brody…and he knew he had to find a way to show her he was more than he
appeared and convince her to make a life with him.
Excerpt
from Sweet Sexy Sadie
:
Brody
stood at the top of Infinity Cliff, Sadie at his side. He’d wrapped his arm
around her as if the gesture would keep her with him for eternity. She didn’t
lean into him as she usually did. The physical separation didn’t alarm him as
much as the emotional distance. Day by day they should be growing closer, melding
as one.
Instead
there was a chasm between them as deep and as wide as the Grand Canyon. A
shield so thick even superman’s x-ray vision wouldn’t be able to penetrate its
depth. He sought answers but none were forthcoming. For each step forward he
took two backwards.
The
sky stretched on forever. Stars blinked in the evening light and a soft wind
blew across his face. He closed his eyes, letting the atmosphere settle inside
and allowing his soul to cleanse.
Sadie
stood stiff and tall against him. When he looked at her, her face was pale and
she trembled. He didn’t want to do that to her. He needed to make her happy.
“I
don’t get why we’re here.” She sounded petulant and irritable. He had
hoped she would see the significance and the astounding beauty of Infinity
Cliff.
“You
need to see where I came from and the journey through time we travel
together.” He should have bit his tongue before he finished that sentence.
With his words, she shifted farther away. A frigid cold swept through him. It
was not the chill of the Chullachaqui but a coldness he had created.
“Brody,”
she turned toward him, “we’ve had this conversation. It isn’t going
anywhere. I’m not staying. I might return if this is where my team decides to
study, but we might never see each other again.”
For
a while at least, he could ignore the negativity and think only positive
thoughts. Compromise meant a great deal to him. He was more than willing to do
his part. And what she didn’t know was that he wouldn’t rest until he called
Sadie Monroe his wife.
He
pointed toward the vast emptiness in front of them. His words were spoken
softly and with a reverence that came deep within his heart. “The McKennas
lived in the highlands of Scotland. How they came there no one knew. Some say
they arrived after a long journey across Pangaea.”
He
inhaled a long deep breath for courage. What he was about to show Sadie could
set back their relationship, could put them in jeopardy of ever moving forward.
“More
folk legends?” She stepped toward the edge of the cliff then peered over
it. “My God, there is no bottom.”
“That
is why we call this place Infinity Cliff.” He wanted to laugh but held his
breath instead.
“I
see.” She leaned farther.
