I love romance. My mom and grandmother loved romances and read voraciously. At about twelve years old, I found one of their books and started my own journey in reading. Over the ensuing years, I read almost any and all books I could get my hands on.
What appealed to me? It was the strong heroines and sexy heroes. The belief that happy endings were possible, especially even against large odds.
Mindy McKinley has a new series with book one coming out today! UP IN THE AIR is a family centered romance about one of the three siblings who take over their family's charter business. UP IN THE AIR features the younger playboy brother who finally sees the light and meets the one woman who challenges him and makes him a better person.
Best of all... it's steamy with sexiness and snarky dialogue!! A perfect read!! I bet you'll be fanning yourself once you read the excerpt below!!
She has everything she wants but time.
He has everything he wants but her.
Hanging on by a thread, first-year resident, Maggie Watson doesn’t need anything added to her plate. With a lead doctor always on her case, suffocating family expectations, and a schedule that leaves little time for sleep—the last thing she needs is a distraction. Especially in the striking form of Cam Chase, who stirs feelings in her she has no time for. He’s maddening and vain, but he’s also sweet and tender and despite her best efforts, she finds him taking the lead role in her fantasies. One kiss threatens to upend the delicate balance her life requires.
Cam Chase’s infamously charmed life has everything he could ever want on the surface. Handsome and likeable, he’s had all the money, women, and fame one could want. But when his father steps down from the charter jet company he built and leaves it in the hands of his brother Carter, Cam realizes he wants more. Lost and unsure where to look, he finds his purpose where he least expects it—reading to young patients under the watchful eye of Maggie Watson. She makes him want to be a better man and once he knows what he wants, he’ll do anything to prove to her and his family that he is worthy of their trust.
Maggie shrieked as Cam slung her over his shoulder and carried her to his bedroom, her arms and hair dangling down his backside. Giggling, she smacked his tight ass and marveled at how exhilarating it felt to be carried off to bed by Cam Chase. She felt giddy as he set her down carefully on the edge of the bed, as if her heart might just beat out of her chest.
She wanted this man. Wanted him in every way that he would give her, wanted to feel him inside of her, over her, under her—she needed to touch him.
Cam stood back and gazed down at her for just a moment. “God, Maggie, you are so fucking gorgeous.” He hooked a finger under her chin and bent to kiss her again.
She melted into the kiss, opening to him, sliding her tongue against his. He tasted like sweet red wine and she let out a mewl of pleasure as he pushed her back gently on the bed and explored her with his hands. He began at her neck and traveled slowly south to her breasts. She gasped and reared off the bed when he ran his thumb over her hardening nipples.
“Maggie Watson.” He broke from her mouth. His voice was low and hungry, and she could feel his cock pressing hard and anxious against her side. “You’re not wearing a bra, are you?”
Heart thundering in her ears, she reached up and touched his chiseled jaw. The friction of the slight stubble made her pussy pulse with need. “I could tell you …” She licked her lips, hungry for his kiss again. “Or you can find out for yourself.”
