If you’ve followed me for any time now, you know I don’t do promotional posts very often. When I do, it’s usually for a book that really catches my eye and has my total, undivided attention. Here’s the most recent one that grabbed me by the waistband on my jeans and wouldn’t let go – you naughty boy, Linc!
Off the Record (Off Series #3)

About the Book:
The sparks of dislike burn hot, but the sparks of mutual attraction burn even hotter.
Ever Montgomery suffered the ultimate betrayal by the one man who she should have been able to count on for anything. It has left her hurt, jaded and incapable of forming relationships, but it also means that she can spot a liar a mile away. These traits are earning her a reputation as a reporter with a keen nose for a good story and a complete understanding of the extreme power of the written word.
Lincoln Caldwell, is the hot goalie for the New York Rangers. At twenty-four and a rising star, he works hard and he plays even harder. He’s gorgeous and carefree—the ultimate charmer. Ladies fall at his feet and the single life has never been lived the way Linc Caldwell does it.
When Ever publishes an article about Linc containing information that she received off the record, she finds herself on the receiving end of the athelete’s fury. Rather than basking in the glory of exposing Linc as a shameless user of women, she finds herself at his mercy when he demands and receives retribution.
Required by her editor to trail Linc for six weeks, Ever is forced to look at the real Linc Caldwell. And she just might find that she has misjudged him.
I had a hard time picking just one excerpt from the book to share with you today. Untimately, one of the hot and heavy ones beat out cute and sassy.
“Wait…where are you going? We’re not done here.”
Linc pulls my hand to his mouth and kisses my fingertips, lightly biting the end of one. “Yes, we are.”
“No…you can’t just start that and not finish.”
Gently smiling, Linc brings his hands up and cups my face. He leans in and looks in my eyes. “Ever…I did finish what I started. I never intended for it to go any further than that tonight.”
I’m lost. How can Linc bring me to two seismic orgasms and then just leave me? How can he not be crawling all over and up in me right now? And the most important question…did I do something wrong? I glance down and see the rock hard bulge straining the front of his jeans, so I know he wants me. But why doesn’t he act on it?
“I don’t understand,” I say weakly.
He kisses me then. It’s warm and my mouth opens willingly. He slowly and softly touches his tongue to mine and then pulls back. “I’m not the guy you think I am, Ever. I’m not about to fuck you when you already think that is my modus operandi. I want you to see I don’t just live by what my dick tells me to do.”
My mouth falls open. Linc releases my face and steps back. I scramble from the bed and put my robe back on, belting it tightly. I feel way too vulnerable buck ass naked while he’s fully dressed.
“But I don’t think that about you,” I tell him.
Well, okay, I deserve that doubt. And I have thought that about him in the past. And hell, maybe I still do think that about him, but it’s also not something that bothers me anymore. I understand he lives his life freely and that may include sexual interludes with women.
I’m free and unattached. No relationship to hold me back. I’m becoming more sexually liberal every minute I spend in Linc’s presence.
Shit! I want to be that woman he has an interlude with right now.
And I want him to feel as good as he made me feel tonight.
“Linc…that article I wrote has nothing to do with what’s going on right now.”
“But it does, Ever. It has everything to do with me not sinking myself into you tonight.”
