It has been ten long years since I have really been home. Yes, I have come and gone but not really stayed put for a great amount of time. I have stayed in contact with some of my friends. But there is one friend, who always had my back. Who was always there for me. Duane, my loveable man whore of a friend. He keeps me grounded despite some of the choices I have made.

Speaking of choices, several years ago, I wrote a best-selling novel about my relationship with my ex-boyfriend, Tyler. He was my world when we were teenagers. Unfortunately, our teenage love story ended with me running off to college in a different state.

Now, I am home. It is time to face the demons of what I wrote. Seeing Tyler. What will happen between us? Will love rekindle? Or will someone else sweep me off my feet?

Minerva, the curator and caretaker of the museum meets the chosen mystic walker. Through the magic that has been entrusted to her, Minerva supplies them with the opportunity to change their lives.

Teaser/Excerpt from Chapter 12
Looking at his face, she discovered that somehow desire changed his features. Maybe it was wishful thinking on her part, but in an odd way, he resembled Arun. Their eyes met, and she was once again consumed by the hypnotic spell they cast over her. Rational thought ceased, and she was lost when desire and carnal lust filled his orbs of blue, turning them a cloudy turquoise. Kissing his crooked lips and delving deep into the recesses of his talented mouth became vital to her well-being. The towering inferno in her hand would have to wait while she tasted other parts of him.

Note: This book contains forced seduction triggers.

Set up for teaser - Shamika is talking with Nate. Nate is a farm-hand. He met the farm owner's daughter Cecily in New York.

“Was she your lover?”

“She was a good friend. We were friends with benefits.” He smiled sheepishly. “We liked each other but we weren’t in love.”

“Do her mother and father know?”

“About the benefits?”

“No, about her hooking.”

“I try to avoid anything about that part of Cecily’s life. Hugo knows and so does Harold. I don’t think Nadine does, but she might. She is a pretty smart lady.”

“That might explain Harold’s attitude.”

“Toward you?”

“Yeah. He hates me.”

“He acts like he hates all women. I think it’s a defense mechanism. I see him looking at you. Believe me, he doesn’t hate you. I’d say his feelings are far from hate.”

Shamika snorted. “Right, and pigs can fly.”

He shrugged. “Believe whatever you like.”

“I’ve got to go. I’m supposed to be gathering eggs.”

“No hard feelings?” he offered.

Shamika looked at Nate’s crotch. “Not from me.” She left the barn chuckling.

K. M. Bishop ~ presents ~ Hotshot

Title: Hotshot
Author: K. M. Bishop
Genre: Sports Romance
Series: Indiana Panthers #1

Add to your TBR - Goodreads 

Jamie Adams
I always loved football,
And nothing turned me on like a sexy football player.
The way they moved on the field, their tight, muscular bodies, and the way they handled the ball...oh...the ball!

Then I saw Chance Atkins, our star quarterback on the field.
In fact, he could be called the sexiest guy on the planet,
Tall, handsome, charming...just the one who I think deserved my V-card.

And when I met him for the first time,
He was stark naked!
Didn't bother covering anything.
I mean, who does that, right?
And all I could do was blush and take a deep look...

He had won the game winning touchdown,
He was a hero but he was also so much more;
He was mine,
He just didn't know it yet!

Chance Atkins
Being a quarterback in the team was not the easiest job,
But there was so much more riding for me this season.

The NFL scouts were checking us out,
But I had vowed to give up women for the season.
Being a pro was my dream,
And I would not let anything come in the way.

But when I locked my eyes with Jamie in the locker room,
I just couldn't stop admiring her.
That perfect face, beautiful eyes, long sandy hair, and a wide sensuous smile.
Her legs were toned, tight, smooth...
And I wanted to see them wrapped tightly around me.

Hell, it was just the start of the season and I did not need any distraction.
But did the universe have other plans for me?
Or was this some kind of a cruel joke?
