Round 3

Ethan O'Connell vs.  Nate Morrisey

Ethan O'Connell

Ethan O'Connell 32 years old, 6ft tall... well muscled and athletic. Brilliant businessman, who rocks a power suit like nobody's business. Brown hair and meadow green eyes with just the right amount of well manicured scruff. Born in Ireland, his Irish accent would melt any woman's Panties. 

Nate Morrisey

Black hair, green eyes
26 years old
Rugged rancher and rodeo championship rider
Has worked on the North ranch since he was 14 years old
Holds shares in North Oil
Down to earth, hard blue collar working millionaire
Was abandoned by his mother at a young age and terribly abused by his father through his life.
Protected his younger sister Livie at all costs.
Is considered an honorary North brother having grown up in their home.
Is madly in love with Julia North – his best friends younger sister – but would never admit it. No one, especially him, could be worthy of Jules.
Trustworthy, loyal, protective
When he learns Jules love towards him isn’t just a crush, he gives his all to keep love her and protect her heart.

When you're lost... True North" The North brothers were hell on wheels-adrenaline-junky bad boys. You'd think they had a death wish - every one of them - but they didn't really, they just got off on the thrill of pushing every limit, that gravity or any other force told them they couldn't conquer. What they weren't prepared for were the women that would steal their hearts. Nathaniel Morrisey thinks he has a handle on his affections for the one woman he's ever cared about, Julia North, who happens to be his boss's daughter and best friend's little sister. But Jules is about to blow that calm self-control he's had a tight grip on all to hell. The North brothers are wild, adrenaline-junky thrill-seekers who thrive on challenge, speed and danger. Their little sister, Jules, is a sweet, quiet, bookworm who's been overprotected all her life by her hulking big brothers ... but sheisa North after all, so she has her own wild streak-a secret that none of them expected, especially not Nate! Nate's desire to protect Jules-especially from himself and the overwhelming emotions he feels for her-have waged a war inside of him. He is plagued by painful secrets and shame because of a childhood full of abuse he knows he can never escape. How can he possibly love a woman like Julia North the way she deserves to be loved? Julia North knows Nathaniel Morrisey is the only one for her, but with a past like a dark shadow, Nate's as turbulent as the wild horses he rides. Will Jules be strong enough to hold on unconditionally, or will she decide it's finally time to let go?

What happens when a rough rodeo rider finds out the woman he loves but could never have; a shy, soft spoken, sheltered virgin is a bestselling erotic romance writer and the stories are her fantasies about him?

“Are you telling me you are a best selling erotic romance writer?” It was obviously sinking in.
“But the books … they’re about us, and we’ve never … so how did you write the sex scenes?” He thought then croaked, “You’d need practical experience!”
This was more than humiliating. “Experience isn’t required.”
He was quiet again before he began, “Who have you—”
Oh my God, this just kept getting worse! “Haven’t,” I said simply.
“You’re a virgin?” He said it like he wasn’t sure he believed me.
At the moment I couldn’t decide which was more mortifying, being one or not being one. “Yes, I’m a virgin. A virgin with a highly active imagination.”
I waited for him to say something, anything, but he didn’t.
“And, I mean, I’d read a lot of those types of books, so it’s not like I didn’t have anything to go on.”
More silence.
“You can just take me home,” I groaned miserably.
“Take you home?” he answered, incredulous. “Take. You. Home?” He paced across the small kitchen floor. “The woman I love writes erotic stories about me and you think I’m going to take you homeAre you kidding?! Remember when I said I wanted to do to you all of the things that were written in this book? Holy fuck! Now to find out you’re the one who wrote them … you’re not going anywhere!” He took a step to the side and leaned on the counter. “And, oh my good God, you’re still a virgin? Breathe, Nate, just breathe.”

Logan Tanner
The Fine Line:
High school senior Liv Evans has one rule: No attachments. She’s lost enough in her life and has vowed to do whatever it takes to make sure she never again feels the emptiness of losing someone she loves. Boys are a fun distraction, but a serious relationship is something she’d rather live without. Her determination for a future free of pain and heartbreak is put to the test when she meets–and quickly forms an unexpected bond–with Logan Tanner.

Logan has always been a free spirit, but ever since a life-changing event took place, which left him doubting the integrity of those who are closest to him, he’s taken that term to a whole new dangerous level. Learning the hard way that life is too short for worries or work–and that women can’t be trusted–Logan has exchanged steady work for street racing. When Liv walks into his world, everything he thought he knew about life and women is challenged.
In The Fine Line, Liv and Logan will discover if it’s possible for true love to have a future, or if history is destined to repeat itself.

Tyson Ellison
Leaving his last foster home, Tyson Ellison signed his name on the dotted line and checked out entirely, looking for something he felt missing. Four tours of service over-seas, too much death, too much violence, brought him back stateside. He was tired, drained, and still empty with nothing left to give. He hopped on his Ducati and headed northwest from his base in Georgia, the only place he’d ever called home. Fate ran him out of gas in the tiny town of Renlend, Kansas with nothing but his Army-issued duffle holding a few meager belongings.
For two years Dianna’s father has made sure something around their family-owned Bed and Breakfast needed attention. Tyson’s attention. His handy-man skills put them in each other’s space on a regular basis, her dad pointing out the vet’s attributes regularly. She isn’t oblivious, she’d memorized each one. Tyson’s body was made for the movies, and so he kind of flirted with and smiled at her. Always managed to speak to her when he is there working. 
But in what lifetime would a ripped, tanned, tattooed Army veteran want with the shyest girl in town? Especially someone as plain Jane as her.

From Tyson Ellison
“God, Dianna, I’ve needed you for so long, love. I didn’t mean to come in here and well…I truly was just going to ease you away from the window before Drew said something to embarrass me. But, hell, I don’t know. Seeing you in this strappy sundress and cowboy boots—” He ran his fingers through her hair, down to the strap of the dress, leaving his forefinger beneath the skinny piece of material resting on her skin. “I. Geez, the good gentleman part of me knows I need to apologize, but the rest of me won’t let the words form. I need you to know how I feel, and honestly, I really want to know if you feel the same way. Drew says I’m stalking you. I didn’t tell the jerk he was right, but you’re all I think about.”

Dianna felt his warm breath against her ear, and then as he started to speak, her heart jumped to her throat.
“You’re mine now,” Tyson whispered.

“First off, Dianna Lane, I will go to drastic measures to change your attitude.” Her eyes widened, not exactly sure how to take his threat. The second one in less than five minutes. His face twisted, not hiding the smoldering heat building in his eyes. “Now, secondly, I am pretty damn sure you’re wrong. As a matter of fact, picturing you—” He let out a long wolfish breath of air through his teeth, close to a whistle. “Oh, yeah. Even better than lingerie—you very much naked with the only things on you being my eyes, my hands, my mouth—need I go on?”

“You’re a naughty man, Mr. Ellison.”  (Dianna Lane)
“Oh, love, I told you I wasn’t innocent. And I plan to make sure you know how not innocent, how not perfect, how not nice I am—over and over and over. I want to hear you. I want my name falling from your lips. But not tonight. I promised.”

Wulf von Hannover
One wild quickie with a sexy stranger will change Rae’s life forever. 

Rae Stone is majoring in psychology so that she can open a clinic for autistic kids, but when her scholarship is yanked because she failed an impossible statistics course, she thinks she’s out of luck and doomed to return to her repressive and poverty-stricken hometown. Because she has three weeks of college freedom left, she goes to an upscale party and has a wild quickie with a stranger, who turns out to be the sexy owner of the Devilhouse, a BDSM club. He offers her a job that scares the heck out her, so she screws her courage to the sticking place and becomes Lady Macbeth, Domme of the Devilhouse. She’s found the money to stay in college, but will the secretive Wulf turn out to be her Prince Charming or the Devil who tempts her to ruin? 

This omnibus edition contains all the individual episodes of The Devilhouse Books: Rae, including:

Episode 6: Into the Fire 
Episode 7: Into the Desert 
Episode 8: Secrets of his Blood 
Episode 9: Rae Flying 

The Blond Hottie’s hand dropped down to the small of Rae’s back and pressed, tilting her pelvis in toward his. She let him. 
She let him. She was just letting things happen again. Just like falling into her major and flunking out of school, she was drifting instead of making decisions. 
Being seduced was letting things happen to her, not doing things. 
The Blond Hottie nodded toward the couple, who were leaning on the wall, spent. He whispered, “Would you ever do something like that?” 
Rae was going back to dust-choked Pirtleville in three and half weeks. 
Three and half stupid weeks. 
Screwing The Blond Hottie against a wall would be doing something. 
“Yeah,” she said, “but not out here.” She had seen couples slip through a door and then emerge later, disheveled, but hadn’t really made the connection. “Back there.” 
The Blond Hottie smiled again, and this time, the toothiness verged on wolfiness. “You want to be against a wall?” 
“No.” Rae tossed her head and looked straight into his deep blue, hungry eyes. “You’re going to be the one against the wall.”

Excerpt Blaise POV
Once Ember finally releases her, Leah grabs Ember and leads her down the hall.  I’m hoping Brent goes as well so I can be alone with her for even just a few seconds.
Lady luck is on my side.  I smile as Brent follows Leah and my sister to start loading Tatum’s things.  I reach out and grab her hand.  This girl…I’ve never been like this before, needing to touch someone, needing the connection.  I lace our fingers together.  I’ve missed her.  I know it makes no sense, but it is what it is.
Tatum is looking down at our entwined fingers.  She doesn’t retreat, so I take that as a good sign.  Lifting her chin I say, “Hey you.”
She replies with a croaked hi.  The crack in her voice calms me.  She feels this, too.  She has to.  This can’t be one-sided.  “Let’s get you moved,” I whisper.  To my surprise as much as hers, I kiss her forehead.  I lead her down the hall to join the others.  I don’t trust myself to be alone with her.  I gently squeeze her hand and let go before placing it on the small of her back.  I’m not ready to not have that connection with her.
