Trouble Times Two by Calinda B

Sinfully sexy yacht builder and photographer Jace Savage has
lived an explosive, reckless life, playing by his own high-voltage rules. When
he met Zoé Dubois, his life came to a scorching stop – until trouble
re-surfaced. How much trouble can a "life on the edge" and all around
bad boy take?

He's about to find out. Trouble comes knocking when the well-being of the child
in his care hangs in the balance, thanks to sudden interest from her
grandparents, her once disinterested father and Jace's obsessive ex-girlfriend,

Determined to give Zoé the passionately intimate life she deserves, as well as
sexy exploration on a daily basis, choices have to be made. Will Jace be man
enough to make them? Couple his desire to change with his constant urge to run,
and you have the gut-wrenching Trouble Times Two.

“Jace, stop it,” Zoé said, racing after his long legged
stride. “Tell me where you’re going.”
“I don’t have time to explain,” he said, yanking a t-shirt
over his head, and socks on his feet. “I’ll be back soon, we’ll get this party
thing together, don’t worry.”
“Come on, stud, quit with the secrecy! You said you’d be up
front with me! It’s one step forward and two steps back with you!”
Marni stood between her and Jace, her arms lifted high, her
chin trembling.
Jace scooped down and picked her up. “You be good with my
baby, baby-girl. Don’t give her any grief. And you,” he said to Zoé. “You’ve
got to trust me. I’ve got something to take care of and I’ll be back in time
for party preparation. We’ve got a wedding to prepare for.”
Zoé threw back her head. “I told you—we’re not getting
married today. We’ve only known each other a little over a month.”
“That’s enough time to know how you feel, yeah? It is for
me.” He gave her a heart-melting, good sense out the window kind of gaze.
“You’re not getting away from me, ever, baby.”
“Who says I want to get away?” she said, exasperated.
“Exactly.” He sat Marni on the washer, positioning his body
so she wouldn’t fall, and inclined his lips toward Zoé’s mouth. “We’re getting
married. Done deal.” He connected with her mouth in a full on, tongue sliding,
tangled, searing kiss.
Zoé barely remembered his words as her body responded. She
reached up and circled his neck with her hands, opening wide to him, their tongues
colliding in a slippery embrace, Jace pressing his ever-present, only for her
hard-on into her belly.
Marni squirmed and squealed, making them break apart.
“There’s more of this coming your way when I return.” His
green gaze bore into her and he tapped his fingertip on her nose. “But now I’ve
got to jet.” He turned and raced toward the garage, heading, no doubt, for his
beloved motorcycle, the Deus Grievous Angel.
Zoé opened the front door and watched him zip away. When the
dust died down on the dirt driveway, she and Marni wandered back inside, clouds
of irritation mixed with desire swamping her mind. A few minutes later, she
heard a key in the front door. She and the toddler made their way to the foyer.
“Forget something?” she said as the doorknob turned. She stopped cold, her
mouth agape as the gorgeous blond stepped through the front door, key in hand.
“Kate Bethlehem?” she asked, shocked. “Why is it you have a key to our house?”
“Who are you?” the woman responded icily. “Child care? And
what are you doing in my boyfriend’s house?”

Author bio:

The Fun Part: Calinda B was told early on that she should be
a writer. She heard frequent praise for her writing, as well as her sense of
humor. Scoffing at such admonitions and praise, she went on to pursue her life
of adventure, chock full of the things that make up a well-rounded adventurous
life: music (yup, she was a singer in a rock and roll band), dance (even
performed hip hop in Russia), rock climbing (ever hung from a rock wall a few
stories up? Yikes!), fire walking (taught high-ranking Moscow fire officials
how to walk the coals), kayaking, scuba diving (she's in love with sharks),
travel, and falling in love again and again.

Many of her books have been nominated and placed in the top
for several reader's choice awards, including Best Urban Fiction and Best
Erotic Paranormal. Living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with the love of
her life and her two cats, she has now chosen to put fingers to keyboard and
write - when she's not in pursuit of another adventure!

Calinda B has worked in the world of computers and technology for a long time.
Before that she worked in the world of health and fitness, as well as art.
Throughout her career she has relied on her writing abilities to write
articles, ad copy and web content.
