A late night phone call was never supposed to cause so much torment.

He will do everything in his power to protect the young woman. What he didn’t expect was the lust that hits him from being around her.

Judi never expected to sexually want a man after being used by a pimp. Devil and his crew saved her from hell but Ripper is throwing her head first into heave. Ripper’s touch makes her crave everything she’d given up on.

However, Devil adopted Judi as his daughter. No one touches or hurts the Princess of the club. What will he do when one of his most trusted men has claimed her for his own?

Humorous Dating Advice from the TEXAS WILDCAT

(Ghostwritten by Adrienne deWolfe for You-Know-Who)

Editor’s Note:  Still pining for a date this weekend?  No problem.  Sheep rancher Bailey McShane, the (aptly named) TEXAS WILDCAT from Adrienne deWolfe’s award-winning Wild Texas Nights series, is here to share her secrets for catching a mate!

Howdy, gals!  Bailey here.

Now don’t you be moping around the homestead ‘cause some clueless male didn’t ask you to a fandango.  I got plenty of experience roping stud ponies – ‘specially the two-legged kind.  So listen up.

First off, don’t pay any mind to the prissy missies, like that Amaryllis Larabee, who set her cap for my Zack.  The prissies would have you believe that a real lady puts on lacy pink frou-frou, totters around on stilts, and bats her eyelashes hard enough to set a prairie schooner sailing.
