Double Trouble: Chapter 112 by Jon Keys
Danny stood in front of the mirror, shifting first one way and then another. His boots had a polish that reflected light across their black surface. He’d spent the better part of an hour cleaning them until they looked new, coating them with ebony polish then working until the final results pleased him. He had put almost as much effort into the jeans he wore. This time Trent rescued him and offered to have Danny’s Wranglers starched. As a result, his jeans were stiff as a board and a professional crease ran down the length of his leg.

Mine! Part Two: Chapter Thirty-two by Cia Nordwell

As much as I wanted naked and wet time to lead to something more, my body was totally against me. The pain was building and that throbbing pulse was almost all I could feel, even with Ritch’s soapy hands sliding down my body.

“I’m sorry,” I muttered.

“What? Why?” He looked up at me, literally on his knees at my feet, his head the perfect height.

And nothing.

I waved hand toward my groin with the hand that wasn’t bracing me on the wall. “It’s not you.” Ritch’s hair was slicked back, darkened by the water, and I could see

Buy One, Get Two and Three: Chapter 64 by Carol Pedroso

Daniel mixed the bubbling sauce while swinging his hips in time to the music blaring out of his iPod speaker.

“Now that’s a great sight to come home to.”

The sound of Oliver’s voice made Daniel spin, almost knocking the sauce off the hob. He put a hand to his heart and gave his best glare. “You scared me, Sir.”

Oliver just laughed and pulled him into a passionate kiss.

“What smells so good? Other than you of course.”

Daniel rolled his eyes and went to turn back to the food. Oliver held tight and Daniel turned up his glare again.

The Sheriff #26 (7.3) by Julie Lynn Hayes

Roy was never one for sleeping in. There was generally too much to do to waste his time in bed. Today was no exception. When his phone alarm went off, he automatically shut it off and sat up, clearing the cobwebs out of his head. But something in the back of his mind kept nagging at him. Something urgent. But what was it?

And then he remembered. Dustin was here. He’d come to Roy’s house in the middle of the night with quite a story.  A hook-up gone horribly wrong. Some slick guy who’d coerced Dustin into participating in an illegal activity—and was blackmailing him into doing it again. Roy would definitely have to fill Harlan in on what he’d learned, as he had the feeling this would explain at least some of the recent burglaries in and around Tucker Falls, if not all of them. But first things first, and that was making sure Denver was out of harm’s way until they sorted everything out and took down the guys who were doing this.

Disassembly Required: Part 4 by Sarah Hayes

When she opened her eyes, Beatriz thought she was somewhere else. She no longer saw her own car, but the parking lot was now filled with other vehicles. The fog had lifted, revealing a cloudless blue sky. She could hear music and conversation in the distance.

Has the machine worked after all?

She turned and saw Frank’s Dining, well-lit and alive with activity. Figures moved behind the neon-framed glass. The jukebox must have been working, because strains of an old rock and roll song drifted out every time the front doors opened.
