“You’re stuck with me.”
She sniffled. “Promise?”
He rested his forehead against hers. “Cross my heart.”
Kaylea Cross, Out Of Her League

“What?” she whispered.
“Tell me what to do to fix it.”
She shook her head and closed her eyes as though she couldn’t bear to see him. “You can’t fix it.”
He had to. Failure here was not an option. “Let me try.”
Kaylea Cross, No Turning Back

“Another sob came, harder than the first, but she couldn't cover her face and her mastectomy scars at the same time when he raised his head. When she tried, Luke merely caught her wrists and lightly pinned them on either side of her head.
"It's all right, Em. Tears are part of this," he whispered, bending to kiss them away. He moved gently within her, another tender caress that soothed as much as it stimulated. It broke the seal on the dam of her tears. They came out in a quiet rush while he stayed above her, eyes on her face as he murmured soothing things she didn't quite catch. And when the tears slowed, she looked up into his handsome face with a sniffle and the smile he gave her filled her heart to overflowing. Dear God she loved him. Had always loved him and would never love another man but him.
Her heart had known it all along. And so had her body.
Still, she tensed when he released one of her wrists to touch the skin beneath her right collarbone. Luke shook his dark head, those liquid eyes looking right into her soul. "I won't let you hide from me. Or from yourself." Embedded deep inside her, he raised his upper body to gaze at her, and all she could do was close her eyes in resistance. "Look at me."
After a long hesitation, she did.
He stared down at her with a powerful mixture of tenderness and hunger. "You think a scar's going to change how I see you? Feel about you?"
She swallowed and struggled to find her voice. "It's ugly."
"You're beautiful to me, Em. Always." She opened her mouth to say something but he leaned down to kiss her again. "Give me your hand," he coaxed, his voice a seductive whisper. She did, tentatively, and his fingers closed around hers in a warm grip. Strong and reassuring. "Accept who you are. Be proud of your body. It's fighting a war for you.”

Kaylea Cross Hi Jenn! Great, and I hope you like it. It's not as scary as the others, but I had to start somewhere :)

Hey, did you know The Misadventures of the Laundry Hag is a featured book here at Goodreads? Awesome! I'm hoping to take it with me when I go on vacation an a couple weeks. Love reading books by athors I "know".

And I can't believe I didn't sign up for Goodreads until the other day. I've already had so much more exposure for this 4th book, and I could've been doing it since February. Gah.

Baba  ♥♥♥ Tyler, Marcus, Archer, Dean, Adrian, Dan & Hunter I'm going to read "No Holds Barred". Ooooops, I haven't read the blurb - I have to post a review for a threesome. *cough* Yeah, when I see something with your name on it...I'm sold. I'll try to give my best. :))

Um, I hope you can "suffer" through it ;)

Baba  ♥♥♥ Tyler, Marcus, Archer, Dean, Adrian, Dan & Hunter In Swiss German I'd say "Ig wünsche dir äs wunderbars, sehr gsungs u glücklichs nöis Jahr!" Translation: I wish you a wonderful, very healthy, and happy New Year! Quite often we say as well "ä guete Rutsch!" meaning "a good slide from 2011 to 2012". Take care, Kaylea!

message 5: by Nikki

Nikki Kaylea I just finished Darkest Caress and loved it! Awesome job! What are your plans for this series?? I'm very excited to read the follow-up which I'm guessing will centre around Cade and Nairne? Can't wait!

Kaylea Cross Nikki, I'm so glad you liked it! I just got offered a two book contract to finish up my Bagram Special Ops trilogy, and then we'll see were I'm at. I do have plans for Cade and Nairne, then Vaughn. Hope to get to them next year, if not sooner.

Thanks for contacting me!

Kaylea Cross Happy reading to you too!
