There’s no escaping ranch policy—anything to please a lady…
The Boot Knockers Ranch, Book 3
The Boot Knockers Ranch caters to women in all ways. And now rookie Paul is officially part of the team. He’s had six months to hone his skills with the ladies and prides himself on being a prime catch.
Jack would agree. He can’t get the rugged cowboy out of his system. He wants Paul in his bed more than anything, but his best friend has always been resistant to relations with other men. Jack’s instinct says different, but he values Paul’s friendship too highly to push it.
Then Jack takes on beautiful new client Lissy Lofton and finds himself falling hard for the confident show jumper. He’s not the only one. Lissy has caught Paul’s attention, and the attraction is mutual.
But now Jack has a problem. Lissy’s sexual appetite is so ravenous, he doubts he can last the week without backup. Which presents an irresistible opportunity to invite Paul into their bed—where the incandescent heat brings all their walls tumbling down.
Warning: Contains two smoking-hot cowboys whose drive to please the same woman spurs a desire to please each other.

“This lower lip is as ripe as a juicy peach. And this upper one”—he dragged his thumb over the rounded edges—“is a man’s wet dream.”
His dirty words spiked her desire. She wrapped her fingers around his strong wrist. Wide, sprinkled with light hairs, warm from the sun. Damn, she wanted to touch his every inch. For a week, Jack was hers to worship.
And she planned to take total advantage and make the big fee worth it.
His lashes lowered over smoldering eyes the color of sea glass. As a child she’d gathered the remnants from the beach and kept them in a little wooden box her parents had given her. What had happened to that collection?
Who cared? Now she had a new kind of sea glass to admire.
Jack tipped closer until the brim of his hat bumped her forehead. With a warm chuckle, he nudged it up. “Hat on or off, Lissy?”
Her mind bounced around the question. What did she want her first kiss to be like? He was allowing her to choose her path. Her heart swelled with the knowledge of her own power.
“On,” she whispered, her voice a stranger’s.
He angled his head, nose brushing hers. She filled her lungs with his scent—leather, man, hay. All the things she adored clinging to one perfect cowboy.

About the book:
I got the idea for this story very late at night as I shivered in a sudden downpour of rain on my way home from work. It was still summer at the time and although late, the sky was still quite light. That happens in Britain where I live and often dawn comes in at around 3.30 a.m. How do I know this? I’m often still up writing or playing around with graphics for book covers. I’m lucky because my day job is in shifts so often I can grab a few hours’ sleep and still get to work on time.
Here’s the blurb:
When Simi finds a pretty old candlestick among the discarded props in the company storeroom, she never imagines it will grant her dearest wish. There’s something mysterious about the carved candlestick, but Simi is drawn to it. She’s saved a red candle from a box she bought years ago in an antique shop, and intends to use the candlestick to hold the last candle and make her solitary Christmas lunch more festive. It’s Christmas Eve, there’s sleet in the wind, Simi slips, but Jason catches her. Who is Jason? Where has he suddenly appeared from in the night?
Simi looks into the eyes of this gorgeous man and sparks fly …
Erotic fantasy romance from Siren Publishing and Elodie Parkes
The mist parted. The sight of a man walking toward her captured her in a spell. Simi stared at him, unable to move.
He flowed slowly toward her, and then he was there in front of her, extending his arms to hold her. His cornflower blue eyes, fringed with dark lashes, filled with emotion. He smiled at Simi and she registered how handsome he was, how completely gorgeous he was, before magically she was in his arms. He held her close.
Gratitude surged through her. Her heart opened to soak up the love he gave her. His face close, Simi yearned for his lips on hers, and then—he kissed her. It charged her whole body with such a surge of raw sexual energy her pussy drenched her inner thighs. She drifted in a heavy fog of his kiss-induced lust.
The softness of his lips changed from a gentle, loving merging to a hungry searching as her tongue met his.
Naked in his arms, Simi pressed against his hard body, her clothes strangely gone. Yet she accepted that as ordinary when his hands swept over her skin and grabbed her ass to lift her against his body. Her stomach contacted the hard column of his erect cock, and she sighed into his mouth.

“Are you forbidden fruit, Kate? Will you tempt me to distraction and not allow me the pleasure of tasting you? Or will you allow me to foray into you?”
Her sex tingled and she could feel her liquid heat start to soak her panties, the prolonged anticipation almost unbearable. Damn! Foray? She’d never been forayed before and the way the word rolled from his mouth sounded erotic. Her breath came out in short gasps and she didn’t realize that she’d whimpered.
Graeme stepped even closer so that her breasts pillowed his chest. He leaned down to whisper in her ear even as his other hand rose to caress her waist to trail up and cup the underside of her breast.
The water boiled furiously behind them, the steam coming from the spout adding to the carnal steam in the kitchen.
“Your choice, Kate,” he said before licking her earlobe which caused her to shiver with need. She moaned when his mouth trailed down the column of her throat to swirl his tongue and gently suck at the erratic pulse at the base of her neck. “Forbidden or permitted?”
The kettle popped.
Kate couldn’t hold back. She needed Graeme’s kiss like she needed air. “Permitted. Forayed. Whatever you bloody call it…”
She felt Graeme’s mouth widen in a smile before his lips moved across her jaw. She needed no prodding as she turned her head to meet his mouth. Sweet elation flowed through her at the feel of his mouth on hers. He kissed her tentatively as though he was dipping into the pool to test and tease. She let out her own growl of frustration.
“Damn it, Graeme, stop teasing. Kiss—”
Kate melted against him as his mouth slanted and immediately plundered her own. She opened to him, allowing complete access to her mouth. Their moans mated as did their tongues. Kate held on to Graeme’s biceps, anchoring herself to him lest she fall, and arched her back when his hand completely cupped her breast. She couldn’t help herself. Her need slammed through every pore in her body. She removed his shirt from his waistband, making a sound between a sigh and a groan when her hands came in contact with his skin. Graeme growled his approval before lifting her around the waist. Kate immediately encircled his waist with her legs. Heart hammering in her chest, she placed her head in the crook of Graeme’s neck and before long she felt the end of the dining table on her bottom.
“Graeme.” She gasped when he released her mouth to trail it down the column of her throat, grazing his teeth against her skin as he went, making her burn. She pushed away gently, which caused Graeme to growl in protest. A vaguely sensual light passed between them, the light in the hallway casting shadows over their bodies.
Graeme’s mouth lifted to the side. “Why do you look bemused?”
A blush stole up her cheeks. She cupped his face before letting her hand move slowly down to his beating heart.
“Why would you want me?” she asked softly. Trepidation edged its way from the deepest recesses of her mind. Would he kiss and tell? Then again, why would it matter? Having sex was hardly something that could destroy a woman’s reputation nowadays. It was no different from a free for all sale where people discarded or returned what they didn’t like. No questions asked.
No strings attached.
Graeme leaned towards her. She moaned when he licked the shell of her ear. “I don’t kiss and tell, Kate.”
She exhaled a puff of breath. “Honestly, Mr. Temple. How do you do that? Are you a mind reader? And your eyes, they have gold flecks in them that glow?”
“Are we going to just keep talking or will you allow me to pleasure you? I’m really not in the talking mood and I’m desperately trying not to hunger for your cream on my tongue.”
“Oh my God.” She shuddered. Excitement flowed like liquid silk inside her. Her body hummed with the anticipation of pleasure.
Biting her lower lip, she removed her T-shirt. “Is this what you wanted?”
Her hardening nipples poked through the beige lacy cups of her balconette bra. Graeme’s eyes seemed to burn brighter and Kate couldn’t stop herself from arching her back, offering her breasts for his taking. Sensual flames licked her skin everywhere Graeme’s hands touched, her body welcoming the contact. He moulded her waist up her ribcage to cup the underside of her breasts again before grazing the peaks through the lace cups with his thumbs. The rubbing of her nipples sent electricity down to her sex, causing her to become wetter. Then his thumbs were replaced by his mouth and tongue. Kate was caught up in the dizzying pleasure of his mouth. She moaned when he spoke against her nipples, the vibrations rippling through her.
“My eyes turn gold when I desire someone.”
Kate braced one arm against the table while she held on to Graeme’s head with the other, the pleasure she felt becoming unbearable. She needed something more. She needed something inside her.
She wanted Graeme.
Her back arched and her breath sighed out of her when Graeme ripped her bra and feasted on her breasts.
“Ohh…” she moaned as her legs went around Graeme’s waist, pulling him closer with her thighs to rub herself against the thick stalk inside his denims. When Graeme let go of her nipples and demanded that she submit to his kiss, she opened up to him. She allowed him to explore every crevice of her mouth as she gloried at his taste. She kissed him hungrily, sucking on his lips, nibbling and teasing his tongue, giving as he demanded and taking as much as she wanted.
“Graeme please….I need more. Please give me more.” She licked against his throat, taking small nips and bites, grazing her teeth against his salty skin. God, she’d never felt this wild before! She purred at the feel of his taut skin against her palms, his flesh rippling and tensing everywhere she touched.
He captured her mouth in another torrid kiss that sent her pulse to a frenzy. She couldn’t get enough, the pain in the middle of her core becoming slightly uncomfortable. She nipped at his mouth and sucked on his tongue before letting her own swirl around it. She tasted traces of mint even as her nose was filled with his masculine scent.
Graeme let go of her mouth to graze his teeth against her jaw to reach the sensitive spot behind her ear.
“Tell me what you want, Kate.”
Graeme gently squeezed her breasts before he rolled her nipples between his fingers. Kate cried out in pleasure.
“I don’t know,” she whimpered against his neck, feeling as though she was deliciously melting. She turned her head slightly, her mouth against his skin. Her tongue snaked out, tasting his saltiness before she sucked the skin over his pulse. The need to suck some more became stronger and she sucked harder, until she could taste something coppery against her tongue. Graeme growled.
“Ancients!” He pushed her away gently.
Kate looked at him in confusion and alarm. Then realization dawned.
“You don’t like me,” she whispered, her heart thundering in her throat. Desire didn’t cause it. Rejection did.
“Not like you?” Graeme asked, his breathing laboured. “Kate I’ve wanted you since the day I first saw you. You sucking on my neck almost made me come in my jeans.”
A deeper blush stole over her cheeks. “Oh.”
“I want you inside me too.” She sighed before looking down. “But I haven’t done this in a very long time. I don’t know how else to ask.” She looked up. “Except to say that I need you.”
Graeme chuckled. “You’re doing pretty good so far.”
“Please don’t tease.”
Graeme gave her a hard kiss that sent her senses reeling towards sensual meltdown.
“I’m not teasing.” His eyes darkened, his lust apparent. “Lie down.”
