Hero: Jude Laurant. A widower and veteran whose wife and children were killed by a drunk driver. He shut down years ago but meeting the local bartender is making him feel again.
Heroine: Ryanne has fallen for Jude. She’s made it her mission to seduce and tease Jude back into the world of the living.
She’d never tried to seduce a man before…But honestly? Over the years, she’d seen other women go all out, so she knew what to do—and soon she grew to love the chase. Also, she discovered she had a talent for it. Maybe because
she wanted Jude in a way she’d never wanted another man—desperately, madly.
Day one was all about the hair flip. Slow, sensual and just like a shampoo commercial. Day two, she practiced her shimmy. Any time she had an opportunity to shake her butt, she shook her freaking butt. Day three, she focused on her cleavage. Or rather, she made certain Jude focused on her cleavage. She wore a low-cut top, her breasts pushed up until she was pretty sure she’d asphyxiate. Day four, she put her finger to her mouth at every opportunity. A lick here, a nibble there. Day five, she forgot to wear a bra. Oops!
A text came in early that evening.
Cowboy: Stop this!
Ryanne replied: Make me.
Cowboy: How can you be so at ease…so happy and carefree when your livelihood is at stake?
I choose to focus on the good. Give it a try, cowboy. You might like it.
Annnd once again he opted not to respond.
For day six, she decided to up her game, and wore a short skirt but no panties. Walking to her office, when no one else stood in the hallway, she accidentally dropped a pen and bent down to pick it up. Her phone buzzed, but she didn’t check the text until she sat behind her desk, no cameras nearby.
Cowboy: I think you dropped something else.
A laugh bubbled from her. Grumpy Jude Laurent had just teased her sexually!
