Play out the hand her way...or fold?
Three of a Kind, Book 2
After four years, Megan Loxley has given up waiting for her best friend, Desmond Reed, to realize she loves him. It's time to move on. When Des introduces her to his poker buddy, Alex Truman, the instantaneous sparks that flare between them signal her life is about to change forever.
Des could kick himself. How could he have failed to notice the perfect woman was by his side all this time? Now it's too damn late. And her innocent prodding about why he's suddenly so distant is only making his hunger for her worse. Then she gets one step too close-and his self-restraint snaps.
Stunned, bewildered, furious, Meg can't help but respond to the kisses for which she waited so long. God help her, she loves Des. And Alex, too. Immeasurably. Now what?
It may make her the greediest woman alive, but she's determined to win the next hand- even if she has to change the game a little. First step: state her wildly sexy proposition in a language both men will understand...and hope they'll stick around and play by her rules.
Warning: If you're looking for a cool game of poker, you won't find it here. This novella is so hot the cards are still smoking. The heroine may be new to the game, but she knows exactly how to play her two kings.

Raising the Stakes
Alex was out of his chair before the noise died down, but Des was faster.
Don’t worry about it, he said to Alex. I’ll go. He owed Meg an apology. What better way than to clean up her mess while apologizing for his own?
Alex hesitated. His gaze darted to the kitchen.
You sure ’bout that? Alex asked.
Absolutely. Meg may be Alex’s girlfriend, but she was Des’s best friend. Of that he was damn sure. Don’t wait for me. Go ahead and play the next few hands. Des walked into the kitchen.
Meg was crouched on the floor of the modern, white kitchen, holding her left hand in her right and sucking her index finger. Hundreds of tiny pieces of glass littered the ground.
Des dropped down beside her. You okay, Meggy?
She eyed him irritably before pulling the finger out of her mouth. Fine. I dropped a glass is all. Cut my finger in the process.

He cradled her hand in his, refusing to let go when she tried to pull her arm away. The silk of her flesh burned through his skin, and he gritted his teeth against the exquisite agony.
You’re an asshole. Meg didn’t pull any punches. She never had.
How dare you brush me off like that?
He didn’t answer, didn’t know how. Instead he removed the tissue and inspected her finger. Still bleeding. Is it sore?
She glared at him. Yes.
He wrapped the wound again, holding the tissue around her finger. I’m sorry.
Her mouth tightened. It’s not your fault t...
