Trouble in Trespass, 1

Bond Mason’s roots run deep in the backwoods hamlet of Trespass, Florida. Nestled against the banks of the Suwannee River, the only home she’s ever known holds bittersweet memories of a family long gone. Except one of her ghosts isn’t dead and possessive ex-lover James Kyle wants her back.

U.S. Deputy Marshal Nathan Gates sights are set on capturing fugitive Robert Kyle. Wanted for the cold-blooded murder of a DEA agent, Robert is suspected of being hidden away with his moonshine-brewing, marijuana-growing family of fellow lawbreakers, one of which is his brother, James.

Nathan expected high temperatures when he arrived in Trespass. What he hadn’t counted on is his searing attraction to southern beauty Bond Mason. She winds him around her finger like a tendril of Spanish moss, but his lawman’s intuition tells him she’s hiding secrets too. When he finally convinces her to talk, he’s not prepared for the dark truths she reveals about her hometown.

The Suwannee is deep, but Trespass’s sins run much deeper. For once, Nathan might be in over his head.


Bond rolled to her knees, still smiling, as she untied the sash to her robe. She let it fall open but didn’t shrug it off her shoulders. It parted in slow motion a few inches then stopped, revealing a swath of golden skin down the center of her body, the inviting valley between her breasts and the small patch of dark trimmed curls at the apex of her toned thighs. Nathan stood motionless, taking her in as he tried to decide what he wanted to set his mouth to first.

“Nathan.” Her fingers nervously toyed with the robe’s sash. He gradually raised his gaze to hers, tearing them away from the temptation of her body. “I have a small confession to make.”

His interest was piqued. “I’m listening.”

Color flooded her cheeks. He put one knee on the mattress and kissed her jaw reassuringly. She braced her hands on his biceps, the heat of a sigh warming his ear. “Last night when you were kind of … bossy … I liked it … a lot.”

He grinned. That was some admission. His single-minded cock wholeheartedly approved. It was so hard it threatened to bust through the teeth of his zipper. “You like me telling you what to do, huh?”

She nodded. Her fingers caught the hem of his t-shirt, stripping it over his head. “I like it when you talk.”

“Last night you said I talked too much.”

“I can’t be held accountable for the things I say during incredible sex. I want you to talk.”

Incredible sex. No argument there, it had been. Tonight was going to top that.

The robe slipped off one shoulder exposing her right breast, an enticement impossible to resist. Nathan ducked his head and made a lazy circle around her nipple with the tip of his tongue. It tightened to a stiff peak. He felt her fingers slide through his hair, heard the tiny moan she made in her throat. “Dirty?” he asked against her skin.

“Anything. I want to listen, not think. I like your voice, but if you were saying naughty things it would be even better.”

He chuckled as he eased off the bed. Bond sat back on her heels, resting her hands on her thighs expectantly. “Take your hair down.”

She released the clip, allowing the dark mass to tumble free. When she shook her head, damp curls slid over her shoulders. Nathan reached out and wound a long lock around his fingers, tugging gently. “You’re stunning.” More color flooded her cheeks and neck. Her bottom lip slipped between her teeth. “Come closer.”

Rising to her knees, she scooted to the edge of the bed, pressing her chest to his. Nathan caught the lapels of her robe in his fists and pulled it down her arms, trapping them at her sides. He buried his face in her neck, trailing kisses across the tender, fragrant skin. Her scent made him drunk with desire, crazy with need. Never had he been so affected by a woman as he was by Bond. She was like some illicit drug, and he’d become a hopeless addict with one sample.

  1. The TBR Pile 4 Star Review

    There's a lot of suspense and crooked cops and, well, just about everyone in the little town of Trespass is either on the take or seriously afraid of the Kyle family. As Bond states late in the book, the town is strangling to death because of the Kyles. I loved how Bond and Nathan both want each other but have serious reasons to avoid, or try to resist, the pull between them. There's plenty of hot lovin' in the book too.

  2. The Romance Studio 4 Star Review

    Pointing a gun at a US deputy marshal probably isn’t the best option for Bond Mason when the man and his partner sneak up behind her. But as long as it keeps her safe, she couldn’t care less. However, when they ask her to help them with their case in catching a criminal accused of killing a DEA agent, she doesn’t know what to do. Especially when helping them will cause her trouble she doesn’t need among those in her small community determined to see that justice isn’t served.

    Setting his sights on capturing a cold-blooded murderer, the US deputy marshal isn’t above using others to get what he wants. So when he asks Bond, the woman pointing a gun at him and his partner, he hopes she’ll give him the answer he wants. Otherwise he’ll take advantage of the lust-at-first-sight moment he has with her.

    I absolutely love the start of this book with Nathan and his partner sneaking up on Bond and she turns around only to be face-to-face with them holding a gun in their direction. The rest of the plot of this book is intriguing as well because Bond has a bizarre relationship with a not-so-upstanding citizen in the community and we see how she uses that to her advantage to make sure those who need protection get it. The dialogue was good and illustrated how strong the heroine was and how she didn’t need anyone else to help her, least of all the hero. The sex scenes were hot, although I thought the sexual tension between Bond and Nathan could have gone on a bit longer before the heat between them spilled on over to the pages, but not to worry, they were great nonetheless. What I liked so much about Bond was her determination to take care of herself and not spill any of her secrets to Nathan until she knew she could trust him enough. While with Nathan, I liked that he was patient with Bond when all he really wanted to do was keep her in one place and try to get her to spill the secrets because he knew she was hiding something big from him.

    Overall, this book was a good read with a heroine determined to keep her secrets safe and a hero determined to unlock them. Too bad he didn’t break out the handcuffs until she cracked. Maybe just maybe it would have kept her safe. But then again, with such a strong heroine, I’m certain she wouldn’t have appreciated such a thing. Well done to this author.
