One Last Call for Madison Falls

Ready for a little small town fooling around? I found a book that’s the perfect mix of sweet and spicy, from fellow LSB author, Susan Behon. It’s One Last Call, Book 4 of the Madison Falls Series, and it releases today!

 

Background:

One Last Call, Book 4 in the Madison Falls Series, centers around Sarah Brandon, Sophie’s sister who was introduced in Book 1. Sarah owns the Suds and Spuds, a popular bar and grill where most of the characters hang out and attend karaoke night once a month. Sarah leaves work one night and gets into a car wreck while avoiding hitting a deer in the middle of the road. Her long lost love, Josh Logan comes to her rescue. They soon find out that the car wreck was no accident and someone is out to hurt Sarah. Josh is determined to protect her and win her back in the meantime. There is a thin line between love and hate. Their arguments turn heated and their kisses even more so! Old flames burn hotter in Madison Falls.

The Skinny:

Stranded and needing a rescue, the last person Sarah Brandon expects to be her knight in shining armor is Josh Logan. One kiss at a time, Josh is out to prove that he would slay dragons for her if she would only give a lost love found a second chance.

How about a few teasers?

~They’d been done for years. Over and then some. Touching Josh out of necessity now should be no big deal. No problem. She was a grown woman now. Besides, he was an ass…with a nice ass. Shut up, Sarah.

~“Hey there, Sarah sunshine.”

An achingly familiar, deep baritone with a sexy southern drawl drifted through the window on her left. There was only one man who had ever called her “sunshine.” She didn’t want to turn her head and see Josh Logan attached to that voice.

Maybe she could fake deafness and he’d go away?

That theory was shot to hell when he murmured, “Hey there, darlin’. You okay?”

Sarah snapped. “Do I look okay to you?”

In her frustration, she’d managed to turn her head to look at him. He was barely lit by the console lights. Still, the full impact of his blue-eyed gaze hit her like a slug to the chest. Oh. My. It was Josh all right.

He still had that same chiseled jawline that she used to love tracing with her lips. The bastard hadn’t even had the decency to go bald and fat.

~“You flipped the switch. You’re using verbal foreplay to lure me in!”

“Verbal foreplay? Honey, this is the way I talk.” He ran a hot fingertip down the side of Sarah’s neck in a slow glide. The tone of his voice became wickedly indulgent. “I can’t help it if you like it.”

“I don’t like it!” Man, I’m such a liar.

“You little liar. I remember everythin’ you like.”

~Her mouth went dry from seeing Josh up close and brightly lit. Sarah managed a nod as she took in his faded blue T-shirt that showcased defined biceps and a broad chest. The washed-out cotton encased a stomach that was still annoyingly flat. A hint of a tattoo on his upper left arm peeked out of the short sleeve. Sarah couldn’t make out what it was. From what she could see, the design looked intricate. She wanted to push up that sleeve and explore him…no, wait, explore the tattoo. Not him. Definitely not him.

~Josh soothed her with nonsense and the strength of his arms around her. “Come on, sunshine. It’s all gonna be all right. If all that hell wouldn’t have happened, I wouldn’t be here right now, sittin’ smack in the middle of heaven, holdin’ you.”

~Josh, you underestimate my love for bacon and my…”

“…hatred of me?” Josh wished he wouldn’t have reminded her of it.

“I don’t hate you.” Sarah’s expression shuttered, and the vibrancy she’d shown while they were bantering disappeared.

“You don’t? What would you call it, then?”

Sarah closed her eyes and let out a deep, frustrated breath. “Look, it was a long time ago. I don’t want to talk about it. Let’s forget it and move on, okay?”

Josh opened her door and helped her up as gently as possible. He started the truck, and they drove along in silence for a few moments.

“No.”

~“No, it’s not going to work. Whatever you have in mind, you can forget it. These aren’t the good old days, and I’m not some naive teenager ready to melt over a Southern twang and some sloppy kisses.”

“Whoa, wait. What do you mean sloppy? My kisses were never sloppy. You used to love my kisses. You weren’t complainin’ back then.”

“I didn’t know any better. Live and learn.”

“When I kiss you—and that’s a when, not an if—the last word you’ll be thinkin’ is sloppy. That’s if you’ll be thinkin’ anythin’ at all.”

“Aren’t you sure of yourself? One thing hasn’t changed. You’re still as cocky as ever. You can forget it. There is no when; there isn’t even an if when it comes to you kissing me. Dream on, bud.”

 

Here’s a tasty sample:

“Don’t scream, sunshine. You’ll wake up the neighbors.” Josh was reclined on top of her covers, bare feet crossed one over the other and his hands tucked behind his head. His black T-shirt stood out starkly against the pastel colors of her quilt. His faded blue jeans were slung low and outlined his lower half to perfection.

Sarah didn’t know what had her heart pumping faster, getting startled by seeing a man in her bed or the actual sight of that sexy man reclining on her bed like he belonged there.

“Josh?” Sarah hissed. “What the hell are you doing in here? How did you get in? You better hope my mom didn’t hear you!”

He sat up and ran his fingers through the short layers of his tawny brown hair before rubbing the back of his neck. “Am I the only one here havin’ déjà vu?”

“How did you get in here?”

His grin was anything but innocent. “You should lock your window, darlin’. Anyone could climb on in here.”

“What if my mom heard you? You could have woken her up!”

“Doubt it.”

“Why is that?”

“She’s not here.”

“She’s not?” So Sarah had been tiptoeing for nothing? “How do you know?”

“She’s still with my dad.”

“At this time of night?” Sarah felt ridiculous as soon as she asked the question.

“Yep. Guess they’re havin’ a slumber party.” He raised his eyebrows in innuendo. She ignored the images that volley brought forth.

“Then why didn’t you knock and come through the front door like a normal person?”

“I was feelin’ nostalgic.”

“You’ve never climbed in my bedroom window before.”

“I know. But I wanted to.”

Are you as excited about this book as I am? Well, let’s get to reading!

Interview With An Antagonist

More Than Words is the second book in the Madison Falls series. Ben and Tracy, best friends of Reed and Sophie, get their turn for romance.

Tracy King, the cupcake queen, has given up on getting her prince charming to notice her. After over a year of coming to her bakery, Ben Carrington, tall, dark, and…quiet, has yet to ask her out. Little does she know that Ben likes sampling her cupcakes, but his real craving is for a taste of Tracy.

A leaky roof on a rainy night leaves Tracy swamped, literally. Ben brings her home with him, knowing that actions speak louder than words. Tempting Tracy into romance is easier said than done when secrets from her past come back to Madison Falls with a vengeance. Ben has a secret of his own but can’t let it keep him from protecting his lady love. Will he finally tell her his true feelings or will he be silenced for good?

We all know how important antagonists are to romance. They help readers relate to the hero and heroine, and they often help the hero and heroine grow and fall in love, even as they are usually working to keep them apart. All month, I’ve been featuring antagonists on my blog, affectionally nicknamed Mad May. Today is no exception. I’m interviewing Luke King, the antagonist from the second book in Susan Behon’s Madison Falls series.

MoreThanWords

TT: Tell us about yourself. Do you consider yourself your author’s muse or bane of her existence?

LK: (Takes a long drag from his cigarette and gives a smarmy grin) I’m Luke King. I’m Tracy’s dad. I’m out of prison and looking for my share of my daughter’s success. I’ll do whatever it takes (legal or not) to get my due. She owes me. I suppose I’m my author’s muse since she had fun writing my dialogue.

TT: What do you think readers will like best about you? Worst?

LK: Readers won’t like me much. There’s nothing to recommend me, except that I’m damn good at being bad. The readers will probably hate me, in fact, but so what? I’m getting my money from my daughter no matter what it takes. That girl will learn to respect her kin.

TT: Wow, that’s a, um, unique perspective coming from a parent. Let’s see if we can lighten this interview up a bit. What’s your favorite beverage?

LK: (Stubs out cigarette and lights another. Blows out a stream of smoke through yellow teeth) I got a fondness for Wild Turkey and Southern Comfort. Give me the hard stuff. Beer’s for pansies.

TT: How about food? Do you prefer vegetables or meat?

LK: (Leans back and leers) I like meat. How about you, honey?

TT: (Looks down at notes and dreads the next question.) Um, do you prefer to sleep in the nude or in your pajamas?

LK: Hell, I don’t know. Most times I pass out in my boxers. What kind of man wears pajamas?

TT: (Hesitates. I should have come up with different interview questions.) Lights on or lights out?

LK: They’re all the same in the dark, darlin’. I don’t need to look at them when I fu… (Clears throat, likely after my outraged look) when I’m knockin’ boots.

TT: (Folds paper with pre-written interview questions and pushes it to the side.) Okay, let’s take this in a different direction. Are you married?

LK: Nah, the bitch left me years ago. I got my eye on lots of women. (Gives me a once-over as he takes a drag of his cigarette.) Ain’t you a pretty little thing?

TT: Um, thanks. But I’m taken. And no offense, but I like a guy who’s more into seduction, treating a girl like she’s a queen.

LK: Seduce? I don’t need to seduce when they’re asking for it. A slut might say no, but she means yes. Not that I’m listening.

TT: Well, this interview is certainly veering far, far off track. Can we focus on Tracy, your daughter, for a moment? Do you want to talk about your relationship?

LK: I wish that selfish kid of mine would see that I need that money more than she does. A girl’s supposed to take care of her daddy.

TT: Especially one who clearly loves her like you do.

(Luke sneers. I can’t tell if he gets my sarcasm or if he just doesn’t care.)

TT: If you could rewrite one scene in the book, what would it be? How would you rewrite?

LK: Now that would spoil the surprise, baby girl. I would rewrite one scene, but you’ll know what I mean when you read it.

TT: Fair enough. Here’s another one. Has your author ever put you into an embarrassing situation?

LK: Embarrassing? I don’t get embarrassed. What do I care what uppity people think?

TT: How about this. Is there anything specific in this book of which you are particularly proud?

LK: I got a few spots I’m right proud of. I teach Tracy and Ben, that boyfriend of hers, what happens when you don’t show due respect.

TT: I have a real bad feeling that isn’t exactly something a normal person would be proud of. Well, I think maybe it’s time we bring this interview to a close. Do you want to add anything before we part ways?

LK: Buy the book and you’ll see just how far I’m willing to go to get what I want. Ben tries to stop me, but he can’t stick with Tracy all the time.

TT: (Shudder) Well, thank you for this enlightening interview. I have to say, I want to read this book just to ensure you get your come-upance, to tell you the truth. And that’s a wrap, readers. Thank you to Luke King for taking the time to meet with me today. I think. Anyway, if you’re as curious as I am, you can pick upLuke’s book, More Than Words, below, and you can check out Luke’s very talented author via her social media links as well.
