Page Notes ~ Mating Scents

Today’s Page Notes is a little taste from Mating Scents (Rules of Attraction, Book #1). Enjoy.

matingscents_800“Garrick,” Bailey called behind him.

Tyr went on and Garrick stopped and faced her. Indigo and the others were across the room by the same counter Bailey had been at when he’d come in.

“I am sorry for kicking you.” Bailey came closer, lowering her voice. “But you were not watching me as if you were up to no good. You were watching me like—”

“You were mine.” Garrick blew out a breath. “Yeah, I realized I was after you started to say it. Sorry I didn’t know I was doing that. I noticed you a few weeks ago when you and your friends drove up. Been noticing you since then.”

“Really?” Bailey studied him, her hazel gaze intent.

“So you’ve been watching me for weeks.”

“When you say it like that it sounds creepy.” Garrick shook his head.

“I’ve not been watching you, I just saw you when you came by and was wondering…” He stopped, not wanting to make more of a fool of himself than he already had. That was what giving into attraction got him—a sore head and being made to feel like an ass who fell on his ass. Garrick stifled a chuckle.

“Tell me.” Bailey stepped closer.

Her scent reached him again and Garrick inhaled deeply, loving how she smelled. “What is it that you are wearing?”

“Wearing?”

“The scent.” Garrick inhaled again. “You smell so good.”

“You’re smelling me.” Bailey looked amused. “Peaches and honeysuckle is what I wear. I make body lotion, perfume, bath gels and those sorts of things. I also custom make fragrances for people too. That’s what my business will be.”

“Peaches and honeysuckle. I’m going to remember that.” Garrick studied the empty glass display cases before focusing back on her. “It must be interesting making things like you do…”

“Don’t change the subject. We can discuss that another time.” Bailey moved even closer. “Tell me what you were about to say.”

“I’m done looking like a fool.” Garrick shrugged. “What I was about say doesn’t matter.”

“I’m thinking it does.” Bailey studied him then smiled softly. “Being a firefighter must take lots of bravery.”

“It’s my job.” Garrick didn’t know where she was going with what she was saying.

“But you save people. Sometimes face death when you do. So saying what you want to shouldn’t make you hesitate when you face that sort of thing.”

“Your logic makes no sense.” Garrick wasn’t sure what to make of her. She seemed to be teasing him yet he sensed she was very serious.

“To me it does. And at this point, that is all that matters.” Bailey rubbed her hand down the side of her jeans. “How about I speculate what you were wondering? You were wondering if I would go out with you.”

Garrick smiled. “You’re arrogant to assume that is what I wanted.”

“Oh, it’s not arrogance. It is surety. It was the look in your gaze. Now that I know you’re not some crook, I realize that you weren’t casing my place. You were working up to asking me out. I’ll save you the trouble.”

Disappointment filled Garrick at the finality in her tone. He couldn’t read her intentions but after the fiasco of his frightening her and making her think he was a criminal, he could only imagine she was about to say no.

“I’m going to ask you out.” Bailey moved nearer until she was almost touching him. “Go out with me, Garrick.”

“That doesn’t sound like a question,” he pointed out.

“I’m not good at asking for stuff.” She smiled sheepishly.

“Somehow I like that.” Garrick couldn’t resist. He stroked down her cheek with his knuckle.

Bailey shivered slightly then turned her head into his touch.

“Yes, I’ll go out with you.” “Good.” She held onto his wrist. “I’ll give you a few days to clear the ringing in your ears from my kick.”

“Why do I feel you are trying not to laugh at me?”

“Because your expression when you got hit was priceless,” Bailey said, squeezing his wrist gently before releasing him. “In hindsight, I now realize you were yelling back at me but not in anger. I just don’t know why you made the sound you did.”

“I was trying to be funny to break the ice by doing a weird mating call to match your yell. Thought that would make you laugh, but I should have realized since you’ve never seen me before you wouldn’t take it as intended. It was stupid of me.” He admitted, “It’s been a while since I dated.”

“Then I kicked you. Makes me think the follow up to that would be what the hell kind of kinky foreplay is this?”

Garrick chuckled. “See, a sense of humor is a good ice breaker.”

“Mating call. That is priceless. Oh God, wait until I tell my friends about that.” Bailey winked. “Get a promise from them so they don’t tease you about it. You’ll have to tell me about your not dating and why not on our date. Does Saturday work for you?”

“So long?” It was five days away. “It’s your next day off.”

“How’d you know that?”

“Indigo.” Bailey rolled her eyes. “She observes things and mentioned noticing how your shifts work.”

“Why would she notice that?” Garrick glanced at Indigo, who was with the others.

“She likes information and makes it her business to know,” Bailey said.

He glanced at her. “Okay. But Saturday is a long time to wait to see you again.”

“But you see me when I come here.” Bailey patted his hand as she released her hold. “Maybe if you get time while you’re on shift, or getting off, you could come over and offer your help.”

“I might just do that.” Garrick stared at her. “You’re turning out to be a surprising woman. Very unpredictable. I find that enticing.”

“Unpredictability is a good thing. Keeps you on your toes and intrigued to want to know more about me. That’s a win-win. So if you don’t get a chance to come see me before, I look forward to seeing you for our date on Saturday.” She put her hand in her pocket and pulled out a card, then a pen from her ponytail, before writing on the back. “Call me with your address.”

Garrick took the card as Bailey walked away. Garrick stared after her, watching the sexy sway of her hips.

Page Notes ~ Unexpected Dare

Today’s Page Notes is a little taste from Unexpected Dare my book in the Carly Phillips’ Dare to Love Kindle Worlds. Enjoy.

mckennajeffries_unexpecteddareSoon, Vanessa made her way back toward the dining room then she stopped short when she saw Stephen relaxed against the wall. She could have continued and not acknowledge him at all, instead she strolled over to him in such a sexy way.

Stephen took it as a good sign that she did. Just the way she walked made him want to take her somewhere private.

“What do you want?” she asked as she glared at him.

He straightened from the wall and gazed into her eyes. “You, but that’ll come later as we get to know each other better.”

Rolling her eyes, Vanessa snapped, “Does that line really work for you? Please give me break.” She turned to go.

He stopped her by grabbing her arm.

She glanced down at his hand on her arm then up at him. “Don’t touch me without my permission.”

Stephen released her and ran his fingers through his hair. “Sorry—I wouldn’t. I don’t…” He sighed then rubbed his hand down his face. “I’m—can we start over?”

Vanessa seemed amused. “You’re flustered. That’s cute.”

“Oh, hell. Don’t say that.”

“Why?”

“Cute is the kiss of death for a guy.” Stephen waved his hand. “It’s for puppies, kittens or little orphans. Or men women put into the friend category, never to be taken out of it. I don’t want to be that.”

“Wrong.” Vanessa studied him. “You are cute when you are unsure. And even saying or thinking that doesn’t make you less attractive to me.”

“You find me attractive?” Stephen smiled.

Vanessa rolled her eyes. “Don’t let it go to your head.” She crossed her arms under her full breasts.

Before he could catch himself, his eyes tracked her movements. He glanced up quickly to her face.

She smirked at him.

“Okay. I’m sorry, again. You’re a beautiful woman. A woman I’d like to get to know better,” Stephen said as he raised his hand to touch her cheek.

Vanessa caught his hand before he could touch her. Her eyes narrowed as she stared at him.

Passively, he stood and let her look her fill.

Her eyes went from his face down to his tall muscular body then her gaze returned to his.

Stephen was caught off guard as she let go of his hand, stepped into his body and sunk her hand into his hair to bring his head down to hers. Vanessa drew Stephen to her and ran her tongue along the seam of his lips. Startled, he opened his mouth. She stroked her tongue deeply between his lips, lapping inside all the crevices of his mouth.

Stunned at her kiss, he didn’t respond at first.

What are you doing? Kiss her. A voice in his head advised which sounded suspiciously like Alec.

He held her tightly and kissed her back with equal hunger. Growling deep in his throat, he sucked her tongue into his mouth. Vanessa whimpered softly as he took control of the kiss and deepened it. Tongues clashing, they strained against each other.

She jerked away from him and blinked rapidly, revealing those glazed hazel eyes.
