Hi everyone! Happy Naughty New Year! Big hugs and thanks to Dani for inviting me to celebrate with you guys and the awesome ladies of Brazen with a peek at my Lovestruck NYE story, YOURS AT MIDNIGHT.

YOURS AT MIDNIGHT follows the story of Lyric and Quinn. Quinn is the boy next door—the boy who didn’t treat Lyric very well because he was secretly in love with her. And she was not so secretly in love with his twin brother. Now adults, they’re reunited after Quinn returns home for the holidays. They haven’t seen each other in four years, not since his brother’s funeral and their one-night stand. Quinn has come back to apologize to his family and to Lyric for the sudden and careless way he left. Tension and sparks immediately fly between the two. But Lyric has a secret—a secret that could push Quinn away for good.


“Did I do something wrong?” Quinn asked.


“Care to elaborate?”


It had to be his abrupt departure four years ago. She’d held a grudge against him numerous times when they were younger, but he didn’t want her keeping this one.

He moved closer, put his arms on either side of her body, and braced his hands on the edge of the kitchen counter. She shuddered, but didn’t try to move away. “I’ve missed you,” he whispered in her ear. “Not a day has passed that I haven’t thought about you.”

She slowly turned around, still trapped between his arms, so close, but so far away, too. They stared at one another for a long beat. The paleness of her blue eyes never ceased to suck him in, and he fell into their intensity, his mouth inched closer to hers.

Her arms slid around his neck. The temperature in the kitchen rose twenty degrees. His blood heated. God, how he’d dreamed about kissing her again. Tasting her.

Making her his.

She released a shaky breath. Anticipation, need, and desire welled up inside him. Four years ago, her kisses had set him on fire. Right now, in this room, he wanted to go up in flames.

“Quinn,” she whispered.


“I want to stay angry with you.”

“I know.”

“You’re a jerk.”


They were nose-to-nose. Her tongue slid across her bottom lip, making him ache. Making him hard. He pressed his hips against hers, trapping her more intimately, letting her feel how much she affected him. How much he wanted to strip her naked and bury himself inside her.

He couldn’t keep his mouth off hers much longer. Another second or two and he’d combust. Stop me now, Lyric, he thought. Or I won’t be able to.

She sank into him.


Lyric jerked away and twisted out of his arms. He turned and fell back against the counter.

“Yes, baby?” She knelt and wrapped an arm around Max. “What’s wrong?”

“Everyone is hiding and I can’t find them. Will you help me?” A big fat tear slid down the little boy’s cheek.

“Of course I’ll help you.” She squeezed him tightly and then stood, taking his hand in hers. “Come on, let’s go look.”

Just before she disappeared from view, she looked over her shoulder. A tiny, closed mouth, apologetic smile lifted the corners of her lips.

Holy fuck. Max was Lyric’s son.


I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into Quinn and Lyric’s story. Things get hotter—and messier—as New Year’s Eve approaches. To celebrate this New Year, I’m giving away a digital copy of any book from my favorite Brazen author, Samanthe Beck’s backlist, and a digital copy of the first book in my Kisses in the Sand series, KEEPING MR. RIGHT NOW. Best wishes for a happy 2016!

Lyric Whetsone only had eyes for Quinn Sobel's brother Oliver, until a car crash took Oliver's life on New Year's Eve. Then, a moment of shared grief between Quinn and Lyric became something more impassioned, something that frightened Quinn so much he ran from Lyric's bed and her life, disappearing for four long years.

Now Quinn's back for another New Year's Eve, struggling for closure, desperate to leave his grief in the past and make amends with the girl of his dreams.

But Lyric has a secret--one that could drive Quinn from her life forever. Will Quinn run away from the love and acceptance he's always wanted...or will he claim his New Year's kiss and make her his at midnight?
