New Release – Can’t Hold Back (River Bend, #1.5)

What a crazy week this has been for me! Then again, I think that’s pretty normal when an author has a new release. I should have expected this, huh? 😉 Well anyway, just a short, quick post today to share a little about my new book, CAN’T HOLD BACK. It’s an “in between” book in my River Bend series and, honestly, it wasn’t exactly planned. When River Bend first came to mind, I thought Dan and Maddie Hudson would always just be hanging around in the background of everyone else’s novel. But then an idea came to mind–a naughty idea–and their honeymoon seemed like the perfect time to put that idea into action. Thus…CAN’T HOLD BACK was born.


To have and to hold. To trust and to obey. To take and to pleasure… Some things just don’t come up in your wedding vows.

Off to their honeymoon in sexy, exotic Cabo, Dan and Maddie Hudson are finally free from the microscope of small town living. For Dan, a self-assured attorney, this means indulging in the all-consuming intimacy of marriage—especially the naked kind—wherever and whenever his new wife will have him.

But CPA Maddie doesn’t want to be in charge. In fact, there’s something she craves and there’s no one she trusts more than Dan to give it to her. But will pushing the envelope sexually be too much, too soon in their marriage? The last thing she wants is to make her husband regret his vows before the honeymoon is even over.

Can Dan be the man Maddie needs, now and forever? Or will her secret desires bring an early end to their happily ever after?

Warning: This book contains an über confident, dirty talking hero and a heroine who isn’t afraid to push the boundaries of the bedroom—or the beach. For readers 18+.

And here’s a teaser…
