This week’s selection comes from book #6 in the Hot Nights in St. Blaise series – Bustin’ Out All Over
“Jason Rayco dumped you,” he repeated, careful to keep his tone neutral.
Her head popped up. “Eight years,” she hissed. “For eight years I waited around, working two jobs, pouring everything I had into his career.”
Words escaped like bursts of steam, surprising them both. He saw the exact moment she took hold of the reins again, clamping her mouth shut and sitting up a little straighter. Quent stood, using his height for the slight advantage it was. Not that being a few inches closer to the ceiling would be an effective defense against what she was packing in that racy red dress.
Bustin’ Out All Over
Terri Ecklund wishes she’d never agreed to be Miss June. As billing manager for SBRMC, she could appreciate that the damn thing had raised a healthy amount of money to fund hospital improvements, but it also cost her big. She could deal with the sly snickers, crude jokes about her ‘assets’, and the perfect strangers whistling ‘June is Busting Out All Over’, but her boyfriend couldn’t.
When the pro-fisherman she hooked long ago cuts bait and takes the contents of their joint bank account with him, Terri scrambles to patch the pieces of her life back together but not before tearing a strip off the smarty-pants internet genius who set the The Men and Women of St. Blaise Regional Medical Center up to go viral.
Internet millionaire and St. Blaise native Quent Halliday nearly swallowed his tongue when Terri Ecklund, St. Blaise, Missouri’s god-given rebuttal to Pamela Anderson’s plastic surgeon, stormed into his St. Louis office spitting nails over the loss of her almost-fiancé.
Drawn to the sparks flying from her eyes and the lure of her bountiful curves, clever Quent knows the opportunity of a lifetime when he sees it. Without hesitation he drops everything to chase after the girl of his fantasies, and when he catches her, they’re both shocked to discover he may just be the man of her dreams.
