Last time Lila Harris was in Happy, Texas, she was actively earning her reputation as the resident wild child. Now, a little older and wiser, she's back to run her mother's café for the summer. Except something about this town has her itching to get a little reckless and rowdy, especially when she sees her old partner-in-crime, Brody Dawson. Their chemistry is just as hot as ever. But he's still the town's golden boy-and she's still the wrong kind of girl.
Brody hasn't had much time lately for anything other than ranching. Running the biggest spread in the county and taking care of his family more than keeps him busy. All that responsibility has him longing for the carefree days of high school—and Lila. She may have grown up, but he still sees that spark of mischief in her eyes. Now he's dreaming about late-night skinny dipping and wondering how he can possibly resist the one woman he can never forget...

She has also written historical single title, historical series, contemporary single title, and contemporary series. She lives in southern Oklahoma with her husband, a former English teacher, who is not allowed to read her books until they are published.

She picked up her pace, but Brody matched his long strides with hers.
“Don’t feel like you have to walk me my vehicle. I’m a big girl and I’ve been takin’ care of myself for years.”
“You’ve always been able to take care of yourself, Lila, but I want to walk with you.” His hand went to her lower back.
The intense heat would probably leave an imprint on her back for days, but she didn’t argue or shrug his hand away.
When they reached her bright pink truck, he gave a low whistle. “Nice.”
She found her keys and touched a button that started the engine. “I left the motorcycle at home.”
“Oh, really?” His expression said that he didn’t believe her.
“Yep, I didn’t want to get to the bar and have helmet head.”
“Are you serious?”
“Why would you be so surprised? I am, after all, the resident wild child of Happy, Texas. I’m surprised there’s not a picture of me beside the city limits sign warning everyone to steer clear of that Lila Harris. If you rub shoulders with her, you get an instant ticket to hell. Do not pass go. Do not collect two hundred dollars. Just get ready for the ride.”
“Motorcycles are dangerous. You shouldn’t…”
She laid a finger over his lips. “When we were back in high school, I stayed on that bull for eight seconds and climbed to the top of the water tower. You didn’t fuss at me about those things, but wait—you were right there too. Well, darlin’, buy a Harley and we’ll terrorize Happy together.”
Brody stepped closer, penning her against the truck door. She put both hands on his chest with intentions of pushing him away, but she made the mistake of looking up into his eyes. Lashes slowly closed to rest on his cheek bones and she barely had time to moisten her lips before she was swept away by a scorching hot kiss.
She knew she should push him back, but instead her arms went around his neck and she touched his bottom lip with her tongue. He groaned and opened his mouth, deepening the kiss into fiery hot passion. She would have been there until daylight, but he finally stepped back, picked up her hand and kissed her palm twice.
“One kiss for the Lila I remember, and the other for the woman that she’s become. Both are very special.” Then Brody turned and disappeared into the darkness.

Isabella had never been more aware
of a man before. Benedict was so big, so powerful. Even here, away from the
danger, he seemed to use his body as a shield, standing close enough she could
feel his heat. Her body reacted, tingling at the prospect of touching him.
“Thank you for saving me.” “Don’t thank me, yet.” Bull couldn’t keep from
touching her, not if his life depended on it. Grasping her hands in his, he
held them over her head. “You were magnificent and you scared the fuck out of
me.” He bent his head and kissed a path from her cheek to her neck. “I don’t
know whether to kiss you or spank your ass for putting yourself in such
danger.” “Kiss me now, spank me later,” she whispered.
Isabella couldn’t resist her teasing remark. Just gazing at his face and
hearing the concern in his voice shattered any resolve to withhold herself from
him into a million fiery particles. Hearing the green light in her voice, he
captured her mouth. The heat she gave off scorched him. As soon as their lips
touched, her passion erupted like an exploding volcano, her lips drinking
greedily from his as if she were quenching a raging thirst. “My God,” Bull groaned as he dragged his mouth
from hers so he could search her beautiful face. Even obstructed by the damn
mask, he thought she was exquisite. He was stunned. “You want me?” “More than air,” she whispered and he responded
by catching her mouth again, sending her spiraling back to the point of no
control with only the touch of his lips. Bull couldn’t fathom her reaction to him. He’d
never experienced this white-hot passion with anyone before, it surged through
his blood and sparked across his skin. “I need you, Benedict.” “God, I need you too, baby.” His hands were all
over her, tangling in her hair, then tugging at her mask. “No, leave it on,” she cautioned him. “Please.” Bull snarled but moved on, pushing the vest she
wore from her shoulders and tugging at the buttons on her blouse. While his fingers
were busy, so were hers, tearing open his shirt and letting her palms graze the
golden mat of hair on his chest in fascination. His mouth trailed the graceful
arch of her throat and as he unveiled the upper swells of her breast, his lips
moved down to nuzzle the creamy mounds. Gone were any doubts about his ability
to perform, he’d never been harder in his life. “I wish we were somewhere else,
somewhere so I could lay you down on a soft bed instead of taking you up
against a hard wall.” In awe, Bull let his eyes rake over her. “I don’t care, Benedict. I don’t want to wait.”
Her eyes were closed, her whole body shaking with overwhelming sensation as she
reached up and tugged the cups of her bra down. When she did, her breasts
popped up and she bowed her back, offering them to him. “Are you real?” he whispered, not understanding
how he’d passed through the gates of heaven without realizing. “Touch me and see.” Bull was on fire, every nerve throbbing, every
muscle bunched. His own arousal was on overload, he had no more control than
she did. When she held out her hands for him, he moved against her gladly.
Immediately her arms wrapped around him and her fingers wove through his hair. Their lips ate at one another with hunger and
she felt the raspy pleasure of his hair-roughened chest caressing the aching
tips of her breasts. Between them, she could feel his powerful arousal rubbing
against her and she pressed closer to him, aching to open the cradle of her
thighs and welcome him inside. “Oh, please, Benedict, I can’t wait.” “My God, you’re a wild little thing. You’re as
fearless in bed as you are in the bullring, aren’t you?” Bending his head, he
took one swollen nipple into his mouth and sucked hard. And when he did, wild
wasn’t a word that even applied anymore. The woman in his arms flared up in a
blaze of glory. Her hands slid up and raked at his hair, clutching a handful
hard enough to sting, and letting out the sexiest cry he’d ever heard. Isabella was shaking, his hands on her body were
so mind-blowingly pleasurable that she could feel no shame, no doubts. All she
could process was elation, this was what lovemaking should be like, this was
what she’d dreamed about. When Benedict’s lips left her breast, she tried to
draw him back. “No, I need this,” he whispered, going to his
