Lock managed not to jump the sexy little Sunday school teacher the second her pen left the paper. Her hand had been shaking as shed signed, and she wasnt ready for sex. At least not the way he did sex. So he showed her into the restroom and let her freshen up. Meanwhile he conferred with the concierge to get her bag brought up and her car moved to a VIP spot.
When she emerged from the bathroom, he knew she was ready. He knew by the fresh lipstick on her full lips and the resolved set of her chin. But most of all he knew because of the flicker of curiosity in her eyes. Under the fear, she wanted to know what came next.

He crooked his finger and beckoned her to him.

Her breathing was shallow, her cheeks flushed, and she kept running her fingers through her hair, touching herself. That long blonde hair cascaded around her face in a messy tumble. Bed head, and they hadnt been anywhere near a bed. Wouldnt be near one anytime soon if he had his way. Which he would. This was his show.

She tugged the hem of her short skirt so it covered a sliver more thigh, drew her shoulders back, and crossed the room, steady on her bare feet. She should be plucking daisies, not padding across the plush carpet of his penthouse suite. Your wish is my command.

No more preamble. If she was really going to do this, hed know now for sure. Im going to fuck you against that window over there, and Im not going to be nice about it. Do you like to hurt, Hailey?

Her name was a weapon on his lips. A sharp thing he could use to lash her. Every time he said it, he watched her tense. This time she wobbled, her answering nod barely perceptible, her coltish legs giving way under the weight of his regard. And he liked it.

She wanted this thrill, and at the moment finding her sisters baby daddy didnt have much to do with it. Her eyes held wariness and guiltbut most of all, excitement. As if his proposition had jolted her awake. More awake than shed ever been in her drowsy little East Podunk life, hed lay money on it.

Hed woken up on stage like that, the whiskey haze parting long enough for fear to creep in, adrenaline spiking into his bloodstream as he fumbled for an instant and thenclick. Everything slipping into its proper place. The music. The band. The crowd. All of it more alive, more real, brighter and sharper because hed come so close to disaster.

Do you like to hurt, Hailey? Hed asked her, and she could only nod.

Hed hurt her so good shed give voice to that desire before he was through. She knew it. He knew it. The subtext breathed in the air around them, a living thing, that damned contract come to life. She wants this. She wants the lurid celeb fantasy. The shock, the pulse-pounding vibrancy that only exists on the edge of a bad decision.

Hed take her there.

Take off your clothes,he said, a little too harshly, his urgency coming out as hard-edged gruffness.

It didnt scare her away. She wants that too. She fingered the button of her cardigan, uncertain, and then popped them all in a rush, exposing a silver tank that dipped low over her cleavage. Fuck. Surprisingly lush curves on her willowy frame, and smooth, pale skin.

He shifted in his seat, imagining his cock between her breasts. Making them slick, squeezing them together, and thrusting, thrusting, thrusting until he came all over her neck. Jesus, he hadnt even seen them yet. She put a hand to her throat as if she could read his mind. As if every dirty thought hed ever had was flashing on his face. And she knew. Why was she taking so fucking long to undress?

~Cover Re-Reveal of Sparks by RS McCoy~

Sparks Cover Re-Release Day Extravaganza!

"Everyone in
the world has a Spark, a light inside that guides them, keeps them alive.”
Myxini School for Children specializes in training young
men and women who have powerful Sparks. Strikers are taught to manipulate fire.
Trackers learn to find animals in the most formidable terrains. Handlers are
instructed in communication with large predators. But forty years have passed
since the last time they had a Reader – a student with the ability to read
When Lark Davies enrolls at Myxini, he knows there aren’t
many like him, but he doesn’t realize just how rare his abilities really are.
He thinks nothing of being asked to keep his Spark a secret; after all, he can
barely control it. Thoughts and emotions flood unbidden into his mind until he
can scarcely walk or hold a conversation. But just when he needs it most, his
ability fails him.
Lark meets Khea, a small frightened girl who mysteriously
ignites his protective nature. He has no explanation for the curious strength
of their relationship, and it doesn’t help that she is one of the few people in
the world whose thoughts can’t be read. As he struggles to get to the root of
their unique bond, Lark begins to unravel more power than even his mentor
expected, but in the process makes himself a target to political leaders eager
to take control.

Wearing only my loose brown pants, I crawled into the
most comfortable bed I had ever known and sank into the soft down pillows. I
had just started to drift off when I heard a knock at the door. I’m going to kill Avis.

“What do you–” I started until I realized it wasn’t
Avis. It was a stunning blonde with blue eyes. Khea.

“I’m sorry to wake you. I just– I had to see you.” Her
arms moved to wrap around my waist and hold me tight as I questioned if I was
really sleeping or not.

“Uh, do you want to come in?” We both knew the rules
about being in someone else’s room after hours, so I pulled her in and sat down
on the edge of the bed, still a little surprised she was there.

In the dim light her hair looked a little darker, but
her face was still sweet and there was no denying that the last two years had
done her well. Who would have thought such a beautiful young woman would come
from that skinny little girl in Lagodon?

“How’d you know I was back?” I asked her, trying to
appear less tired or shocked than I was.

“A friend told me.”

“I didn’t think you–” Cared? It wasn’t the right word,
but I was beyond amazed that she was interested in my whereabouts. I hadn’t
seen her since that night at the Moonwater and it had changed everything for me
since then. But for her, I wasn’t aware that she had been affected in any way.

“Ride with me tomorrow?”

“Uh, yea, of course.” It was a struggle to cover how
little I wanted to wait. I would have given anything to have her stay.

A wide smile erupted across her sweet lips as she
said, “meet me at the lake at noon.” With a lingering kiss on my cheek, she
walked back through the door and disappeared into the dark stone corridor.

What just happened? I hadn’t seen her in
person in years, and we were hardly close before that. And now she arrived in
my room in the middle of the night and kissed me on the cheek. Was it a kiss
like a friend would give another? Or more? I couldn’t make any sense of it, but
there was only thing I was sure of. I would be at the lake at noon if it was
the last thing I did.
