Bippity Boppity Book  

The Best Man
By Adriana Kraft   


Bad boy meets bad girl. Is there anything more?

Passionate, hardworking and every inch a businesswoman, Chicago realtor Kitty Paige likes her sex raw and edgy, and sees no reason to limit herself to just one man. Never married and not quite forty, the striking blonde has successfully raised her daughter, Susan, and is already pushing her new-found freedom to the limits.

Wealthy commodities middle-man and race horse owner Jared Jacobs is father of the best man at Susan’s wedding. He is smitten by the vision in yellow who exudes sex as she escorts her daughter down the aisle. Also single, the handsome mustached California ranch owner with mischievous eyes views his sex life as a series of splendid love affairs, and sets out to make Kitty next on the list.

Together and apart, their chemistry is explosive, and their sparkling repartee and steamy sex catch both partners by surprise. Jared is first to recognize he’s fallen in love. When Kitty panics, can Jared finesse his every move and reel her in?

Handing Jared his hot dog and fries, Kitty grinned at the lusty expression suddenly crossing his face. Rebecca was right—the raised collar was going to make the afternoon very long for Jared. Long for her, too.
“What have you two been up to,” he asked, “besides food gathering?”
“Conspiring how to make me rock hard?” he whispered in her ear as she slid in front of him to take the seat on the other side.
“Of course.” She batted an eyelash. “Isn’t that the point?”
“Do you know you have the sexiest damn feet?”
“Uh huh.” She slapped his hand off her thigh. “You’ve told me before. And we have a much larger crowd today, so be a good boy—for a change—if you can.”
He leaned away from her and chortled, then glanced over at the tote board. “It’d be a lot easier to be a good boy if you weren’t so intent on being a naughty girl.” He gave her a crooked smile and laid half the Daily Racing Form across her lap. 
She scowled at him when she felt his fingers toying with the hem of her skirt, which had ridden half way up her thigh. “If you persist on being bad, I’ll have to spank you when we get back home.”
He withdrew his hand from under the newspaper and leaned over to whisper in her ear. “Is that a promise?”
She burst out laughing. “Trust me. So how did we do on the last race?”
“Your horse came in right behind mine, so we not only won the race but got the exacta.”
She couldn’t help herself. She quickly leaned over and whispered, “So does that mean I was riding your ass?”
He shook his head and checked out the horses across the way at the starting gate with his binoculars. “So now who is taunting?”
“So how much more do I have to do before I’ve earned a spanking?”
“Not a bit more,” he said out of the corner of his mouth. “You earned that when you came back to the box with your collar at such a rakish angle.”
“Do we have to stay for all the races?”
He let the binoculars hang from his neck and gave her a crooked smile. “You getting a little hot?”
She nodded.
“We can leave after the eighth. Will that be soon enough for you?”
She pouted. “It’ll have to be.”

Author Bio: 

Award winning author Adriana Kraft is a married pair of baby-boomers who believe that good sex is meant to be enjoyed. We write in two genres: erotic romance for two, three, or more, and sizzling romantic suspense. Our romantic pairings include straight m/f, lesbian, bisexual, ménage and polyamory, in both contemporary and paranormal settings. 

We especially write for couples (married or otherwise, straight or LGBTQ). We craft scenes that appeal to both genders, scenes that invite fantasizing, scenes that can be part of foreplay, scenes that lead to one of our favorite lines from a reviewer of Colors of the Night, our very first published book: “The reader will no doubt want either a partner or a bucket of toys close at hand.”

We blog about erotic fiction and also feature a Stay Sexy column focused on keeping vibrant, healthy, excited and sexy across the life cycle. Whether we're crafting erotic fiction, sharing health tips, reviewing books, movies, and toys, or talking about our personal experiences, we hope to inspire our readers to live life to the fullest, embrace their sexuality, and do what is within their power to maintain healthy bodies and minds. 

We invite you to stop by our Website, browse our Blog, and sample a taste of our world, “filled with warmth, blazing hot sex, well-developed characters…not for the faint of heart.” (Romance Junkies).
