GENRE: Contemporary Romance
Always the bridal consultant, never the bride. That was former bad girl gone business professional, Pearl Walker’s life until she put her hands on Tyson Morgan while measuring him for a tux.
Tyson was happy being a miserable man, taking care of his family’s land, and not involved with a woman. However, even he can’t resist the pull of attraction to the beautiful, and off limits, Pearl?
The feud between the Walkers and the Morgans had torn apart friends and families for generations. What might happen when Pearl Walker and Tyson Morgan become business partners—and more?
She eased up next to him and pulled open the silverware drawer. He was close now–so close she could feel the heat from his body. Inhaling, she caught the scent of his soap on his skin. It was nice. Thoughts of having wrapped her arms around him while she measured him sent a tingle down up her spine.
It was enough to have her shake away the sizzle that traveled through her. Though she must have forgotten that he was right behind her because she backed right into him, causing him to lift his hands to her waist to steady her.
Pearl turned quickly in his arms before he could remove his hands completely. “Everything is perfect.”
The kitchen wasn’t very big, and usually that bothered her. Today, however, she was grateful that they were nearly pinned against the counter in the small space.
With a fork in each hand, she let her body press up against his. His hands still held her in place.
Tyson’s eyes had gone dark.
He moved his gaze from her eyes to her lips and back again. “You have a tattoo on your back,” he said, his voice raspy.
Pearl blinked slowly. “You saw it?”
“Your shirt wasn’t very long.” His Adam’s apple bobbed in his throat as he swallowed. “Your shorts weren’t very—high on your waist.” His breath had grown heavy.
The air in the kitchen became thick and hot. “I hadn’t expected company,” she said easing against him as his fingers dug into the skin on her hips through the thin fabric of the yoga pants. “How much of it did you see?”
She felt his thumb making a small circle on her hip bone, and it was sending wild signals to all parts of her body. Signals she wasn’t sure she could continue to ignore.
“There were wings,” he said as he stepped in closer to her and her back pushed up against the kitchen counter. “Butterfly or angel?”
He lowered his face so that their mouths were a breath apart. Pearl wrapped her arms around his neck as they hovered close.
Her mouth had gone dry, but she managed, “Perhaps you should look for yourself.”
Those must have been the words that snapped his control. Tyson’s mouth came down on hers with a fury, and she accepted. Their lips parted ways as their tongues fought to dance and their bodies pressed together.
AUTHOR Bio and Links:
Bernadette Marie has been an avid writer since the early age of 13, when she’d fill notebook after notebook with stories that she’d share with her friends. Her journey into novel writing started the summer before eighth grade when her father gave her an old typewriter. At all times of the day and night you would find her on the back porch penning her first work, which she would continue to write for the next 22 years.
In 2007 – after marriage, filling her chronic entrepreneurial needs, and having five children – Bernadette began to write seriously with the goal of being published. That year she wrote 12 books. In 2009 she was contracted for her first trilogy and the published author was born. In 2011 she (being the entrepreneur that she is) opened her own publishing house, 5 Prince Publishing, and has released contemporary titles and has begun the process of taking on other authors in other genres.
Bernadette spends most of her free time driving her kids to their many events. She is also an accomplished martial artist, working her way to her second degree black belt in Tang Soo Do. An avid reader she loves to meet readers who enjoy reading contemporary romances and she always promises Happily Ever After.
