Took a little Facebook poll to see what'd end up here today and, at the time I set up this post, the Coles seemed to have it. At least on Facebook. (A couple of people told me privately or on Twitter they wanted to see a Surfer Dude snippet, which would have pushed Pierce over the top. You shouldn't have voted twice, Jo Kenrick!) And two people voted Regency, warming my heart.
So...maybe more Surfer Dude next week, but for today it's Cole & Lara, more or less where we left them last week:
Lara relinquished the small computer, but treated him to a view of her back. Muttering under her breath, she tossed things into an overnight bag, then paused, her head tilted to one side, her eyes narrowed as if she were considering the growing mound of clothes on the bed, unsure of what to take.
“How long?” she demanded.
Cole jerked his gaze away from the enticing sight of her curvy, heart-shaped ass bent over the carryall and decided she was not asking about the size of his erect cock.
“How long what?” he grunted, more than a little stupid after all the blood had left his brain on a southbound train.
“How long will this alleged ‘protective custody’ of yours last?”
(Googled "Male models with guns" and this picture popped up. Naturally, I thought it was a picture of Cole, fully armed. I now realize he's not carrying firearms at all -- it's a frickin' saddle. With stirrups. At least I think it is. Has nothing whatever to do with this snippet. But it's so tasty I'm keeping it, anyway. I'm pretty sure y'all will agree on that call.)
