*waves* It’s another My Sexy Saturday, where tons of bloggers give you 7 bits from their work – either 7 words, 7 sentences, or 7 paragraphs. Mmmm yummie. This week’s theme is Our Sexy Man – and doesn’t that just open up to all sorts of yum!
This is 7 paragraphs from my upcoming Corbin’s Bend book A Good Family Man
Startled, Josh looked up at him. “You have a daughter?”
“Yep. Best result that could have come from a stupid prom night fuck. Her mother and I were not in love, so we didn’t marry. But I’ve stayed in touch with my daughter since the day she was born. I wish I knew her better than I do, though,” he admitted, feeling the sadness that had been a constant companion over the last few months creep in a little. “Spent so much time at work that I never had the time. Hell, I was married to my job. It’s probably a good thing Diedre and I never married just because we had a daughter. I wasn’t a very good family man.” It still hurt to say and it was something he wanted to reverse.
Chewing his food, Josh was quiet for a few minutes. “Your brother seems to be a—”
“Good family man?” Jack filled in. “Every man in my family is. Josh, I was a U.S. Marshal. When you work a job like that, you are the job. Anyone I was in a relationship with, I ended up hurting because I wasn’t there for them.”
“U.S. Marshal? Like the witness protection stuff?” Josh asked with interest.
“Wow. A real life hero.”
Corbin’s Bend, Season Three
Release Date: August 6, 2015
Jack Carmichael’s natural instinct is to take care of people. In his job as a U.S. Marshal, he has done that for 25 years. Unfortunately, being married to his job has left his love life in tatters. Now classified unfit for duty, he retires and comes home to Colorado to figure things out. Dominant and used to taking control like his brother Brent, he has never been interested in spanking. Until a cute Nurse Practitioner catches his attention.
Josh Martin feels lucky. He’s not only accepted into Corbin’s Bend, but he’ll be working at the brand new Corbin’s Bend Medical Clinic as its only Nurse Practitioner. At thirty-two, he figures this is his last-ditch attempt at finding a dominant partner who isn’t abusive. He finds more than his share of dominant men in Corbin’s Bend, not the least of which are the Carmichael brothers. Brent’s dominance is both comforting and unnerving, Jack’s turns him on.
Josh is unlike any submissive male Jack has encountered and when the younger man asks him out, he decides to give it a go. One day of fun turns into two, three…until Jack, with more failed relationships than he can count in his past and unsure he can be the head of house Josh needs, leaves, burying himself once again in work. Forced to see the error of his decision, he puts aside the worries that have plagued him for months and returns to Corbin’s Bend. To become the good family man he wants to be, he has to earn back Josh’s trust and truly take on a role he’s never considered before: head of a loving discipline household.
Now, how about some more sexy tidbits…
