Preorder The Attraction Equation

A LOVE UNDERCOVER ROMANTIC COMEDY

She’s the exception to his every rule…

AttractionEquation_500 FBI agent Max Carter lives his life by a strict set of rules—rules that don’t allow for distraction, deviation…or a relationship. But tell that to his matchmaking mama. To avoid yet another set-up, he announces he has a girlfriend. And now has to produce said girlfriend at Christmas dinner. Maybe Santa has a suitable actress in that red bag of his…

Gina Castillo is about to break her building’s iron-clad “no pets” policy to give her little brother the perfect Christmas gift—a dog. Too bad Max, the most inconveniently sexy tenant in the building, catches her red handed. Gina expects to be evicted, but instead finds herself blackmailed into playing the role of his girlfriend.

Two lies plus one dog should equal a hot mess of a holiday, but attraction and Christmas magic might just defy the rules…

TWKOC EXCERPT

TaO Teaser 1Drew took another swig of his beer and pretended to watch the baseball game on the TV over the bar. Max had dragged him to their favorite Irish pub—all mahogany wood, a hundred beers on tap, and sports on every TV—for a few hours on a Saturday night. He’d insisted Drew needed to get out of his head before he went out of his mind.

He’d been working flat out trying to find something, anything, to close this damn case and escape his own personal hell. Being around Cassie without allowing himself to stare, or tease, or touch, was damn near killing him. If this went on much longer, the FBI would find his cold, lifeless body in his apartment, and the coroner’s report would cite an excessive buildup of sexual tension in the cells as the cause of death.

She, in the meantime, didn’t seem the least bothered by their status quo.

“What’s your problem, Kerrigan?” Max drawled, neatly stacking the coasters, flipping one over so that the same side was facing up on all of them.

Drew raised a single eyebrow. His friend’s OCD was showing.

“Shut up.”

“Didn’t say anything,” Drew replied.

Max wasn’t to be sidetracked from his earlier question, though. “You’ve been about as fun as a sandy towel at the beach. I’m used to you not speaking much, but if I didn’t know you better, I’d say you’re in need of some mind-blowing sex.”

Drew’s body agreed as a crystal-clear image of Cassie’s gorgeous body assailed him. Unfortunately, banging his head on the bar in an attempt to rid himself of said image would only make Max more suspicious. “I’m not,” the words came out as a growl.

“No?” Max challenged.

Unwilling to argue, Drew shrugged and swung his gaze back to the game. Not that he’d paid enough attention to even know the score, but what the hell.

“I told you getting close to your assignment was a bad idea.”

Damn Max and the computer he carried around instead of a brain. He was almost as bad as Cassie in the hit-the-head-on-the-nail analysis of others. “I didn’t ask for your opinion.”

“When my buddy starts acting like a bug crawled up his ass, I have to step in. It’s just the kind of guy I am.” Max slapped him on the back just as he was taking a swig of beer, and Drew came up spluttering.

In retaliation, Drew scoured his brain for a diversion and landed on a topic guaranteed to distract. “Has your mom found you a wife yet?”

Max’s expression snapped from grinning to pissed in less time than it took him to trace laundered money to the source. “Low blow, man. Why’d you have to take it there?”

Get to know Max before his story comes out Nov 13th!!!

EXCERPT

Drew.”

His name came out like a blast from a shotgun, and Cassie was vaguely aware of several heads in cubes turning her direction.

He stood up to face her, blinking in seeming innocence. “Is there a problem?”

Cassie wasn’t sure whether she wanted to laugh at the question or bop the man over the head.

“Yes,” she said in deliberately slow cadence, each word dripping in sarcasm. “There’s a problem when you go off on your own, when all I asked you to do was check my numbers.”

Drew held up his hands. “I’m sorry if I stepped on your toes, but this is worth a look.”

God. She really had found the male version of herself.  “You’re right.”

He cocked his head. “I am?”

“Yes. You’re stepping all over my toes. They’re practically black and blue thanks to you tromping around.”

Drew actually looked down at her feet as if he’d see her toes all bruised up for real, then glanced back up, an oddly assessing light in his eyes. “But if you’ll just take a moment…” He pointed at the screen.

Irritation hijacked her common sense, and she stepped into him. Because Drew was already standing close, they were now practically chest to…well, she was short…so boobs to abs. She still managed to squeeze her hand between them and poke him in the pecs with her finger. “Knock it off, Kerrigan. My recommendations are what we’re going with.”

Drew’s unnatural stillness filtered through her annoyance. A burning need in blue eyes now laser focused on her.

Sweet baby Jesus. The nerves in her body, already revved up, jumped right back to hot, luscious life as blood flooded every erogenous zone, including a few she hadn’t been aware she had.

“Cassie, Drew… You guys ready?”

Drew jerked his head up, straightening away from her at the same time, and Cassie whipped her head around to find Kevin at the end of the aisle waiting.

“Be right there,” she called, and hoped to high heaven Kevin hadn’t noticed her choked voice, how close she’d been standing to Drew, or the tension practically radiating off them both.

The Wrong Kind of Compatible – RELEASE DAY!

It’s Finally Here….

Kadie-FB-Compatible

WrongKindofCompatible-NewTaglineData analyst Cassie Howard may be brilliant (and, okay, a little awkward), but she’s worked hard to get where she is. She definitely doesn’t need some sexy new analyst coming in and taking credit for her work. Or the inappropriate thoughts that keep popping out of her mouth she’d rather he not hear.

For undercover FBI agent Drew Kerrigan, computers have always made more sense than people, but he’d better develop some slick social skills in a hurry if he’s going to win over the too-tantalizing-for-his-sanity Cassie. Hacking their systems was easy. Now he’s just got to hack the one person in the company most likely to see through his ruse…

EXCERPT

CompatibleTeaser2It took Cassie all of five steps away from him for Drew to move.

He was crossing a dangerous line, or on a slippery slope, or whatever other cliché you wanted to throw at the situation. He could’ve held on. After a week of ignoring every instinct he had that screamed at him to spend time with Cassie, get to know her better, and—hell, yes—kiss her a lot more, he’d thought he could make it through the investigation. After everything was over, then he could approach her.

But no way could he watch her walk away after every spark of hope in her stunning eyes had died. Stealing candy from a baby while kicking puppies and burning a hole in the ozone layer couldn’t even feel this horrible.

“Cassie.” Her name tumbled off his lips even before he’d made a final decision, or maybe his heart made it for him. No brain required.

She glanced over her shoulder, her hand on the doorknob, and raised her eyebrows.

Words failed sometimes.

Instead, Drew stalked across the room, enjoying how her eyes widened with every purposeful step he took. She turned to face him fully just as he invaded her space. Drew stepped close enough to feel her heat, relishing the faint gasp that parted her lips. He leaned into her, hand on the door behind her to ensure it stayed closed.

He gazed down into bright blue-green eyes, where a wary spark of hope had ignited, and scoured his brain for a smooth, suck-the-breath-out-of-her-lungs, thing to say. Inspiration struck and he smiled even as he spoke the words. “I’d like to unzip your files.”

She froze and blinked up at him so long Drew started to worry she didn’t get it. They hadn’t had any word play all week. Well, she’d tried, and he’d ignored. But this one was out of context, right out of the blue. Maybe…

Cassie burst out laughing, deep belly laughs that he couldn’t resist chuckling along with, even though he wasn’t quite sure yet if she was laughing at him or with him.

“That has to be the nerdiest pickup line in history.”

Drew grinned back like a moron, and relief whooshed through him as two things became evident. First, she got it. Second, she seemed receptive given the big smile and sparkly eyes, along with the fact that she wasn’t running away screaming.

“Did it work?”

They both sobered. Longing swept away any urge to laugh, and Drew swam through those eyes of hers. His body tightened in anticipation. Their breath mingled as he dipped his head, unable to wait a second longer to taste her lips again.

“Drew, are you still in here?”

Kevin’s attempt to open the door stopped short when it bumped up against Drew’s hand and Cassie’s backside.
