CHARADE teaser

I am having a blast with the New Adult I'm working on. Hoping to have it out in October, but until then, I thought I'd share a teaser with you! Colt and Cheyenne are complete opposites (or are they?) and definitely don't get along at first. They're thrown together in a CHARADE neither of them is real fond of, but they both need for one reason or another. It's alternating point of view, which I haven't written in a long time, but love!

This is an unedited excerpt!

We get up to her building and I open the door for her. She cocks her head at me, but then shakes it off and walks inside. “What? Think I’m a f*cking Neanderthal who doesn’t know how to treat a girl?”
“No. Neanderthal’s probably had better mouths than you do.”
A laugh jumps out from between my lips, surprising me. I can’t remember the last time I laughed and it puts me on edge. I suddenly want to do the same thing to her. Let her see how it feels to teeter on that cliff.
I turn and face her, taking steps toward Cheyenne instead of the stairs. She backs up and I move forward. When she hits the wall, I keep going. Each of my hands are on the wall, one on each side of her head. She sucks in a quick breath and I falter a little, before catching myself. Closer…I lean closer until my lips are right next to her ear. She smells a little like alcohol, but also like some kind of perfume too.
“I think you’d like my mouth, Princess. I’ve never had any complaints before. I promise, it’ll make you feel good.”
She gasps and I suddenly want to make good on threat. I want to suck the lobe of her ear into my mouth. Kiss the hollow spot at the base of her throat to see if it drives her wild.
“Yeah,” I inhale. Damn girls are sexy. I feel her body against mine and I want more.
“If you don’t step away from me right now, your mouth will be the only thing you have left to make girls feel good with.”
Her words snap me out of whatever trance I was in. No, I’m not going to go there with his girl, but I am going to have fun with her. “Why? Are you scared you won’t be able to keep your hands off me? Might want this to be a little more than a game?”
I feel her breath against my face. My body reacts to how close she is, but I’m still not moving away.
“Does this usually work on girls?” Her voice is raspier than it was earlier. Breath-y.
“It’s working now.”

So.... that's Colt and Cheyenne from CHARADE.

Must get back to writing now :)

And because I'm impatient, hoping to have a cover to show you soon!
