ONE WEEK is all it will take...

A week in Las Vegas and she will feel better about herself. At least that is what Dacotah Miller is hoping will be the case.

Left at the alter, heart broken and ashamed, Dacotah takes the opportunity offered by her girlfriends - the chance to get away. The opportunity to escape her mundane life in the middle of nowhere Wisconsin.

But what Dacotah doesn't know is that lurking in Las Vegas is the chance of a lifetime, a dream come true, in the form of Derek Hunter.

Derek, in town on business, can't seem to focus on his purpose once Dacotah walks into his field of vision. She beautiful and just what he needs to cure his desire for a good woman in his bed. Only she presents a challenge to him unlike anything he's ever experienced before.

Dacotah will be wrapped up in a whirlwind of unexpected events that will force her to make a decision, life changing choice. Does she get on the plane back to boring Wisconsin and wonder what might have been? Or will she step on board a private jet that promises to take her on a journey she will never forget?


Excerpt 1

“Orion huh?” I jump at the voice in my ear

and try to spin around but he pins me to the side of the pool. I should fight

to free myself, but the sound of his voice, the smell of his cologne, my

drunkenness and the instant wetness between my legs has me paralyzed.

“You never told me your name.” I breathe.

“Orion is fine, for now.” He replies, but

he doesn’t ask me for my name, and I wonder idly if he already knows. Whether

having heard Mandy say it, or something else. I feel him press into me a little

harder and I can feel ever inch of his warm, pool soaked body against my back.

My toes reach down, seeking the bottom of the pool and I find it. Steadying

myself against him. I suddenly realize that I want this man, badly.

“Why the secrets?” I ask him.

“Why not? Isn’t it more fun this way?” His

mouth is right at my ear and I can feel the warmth of his breath caressing my

face, along my cheek and down my neck. I shiver and feel my nipples harden. My

desire for him is hot and I’m surprised because I’ve never in my life been so

turned on.

“No.” I answer his question. “Well, maybe

it is for you, you have control.”

“Just the way I like it.” His hands begin

to glide along my arms, to my shoulders, across to my neck, but the contact of

his front to my back never falters. “You, in my control, wanting and willing to

do anything my heart desires.”

My breathing hitches and fear spikes in my

veins, but it is quickly cooled by his lips on my shoulder, right where it

meets my neck. His kiss is hot and soft. I can feel the stubble of his goatee

prickling along my skin and goosebumps form across my entire body. I shiver. My

breathing hitches and I bite my lip to stifle a moan. He knows exactly what

he’s doing because he doesn’t stop. His hands are tracing down my sides, light

as feathers, and his lips continue their way along my shoulder, back to my


Suddenly one of his hands disappears and I

feel his fingers on the back of my neck, grabbing at my wet hair and gently

moving it over my right shoulder.

“Well, aren’t you just full of secrets.” He

says into my ear and then he kisses along my hairline, along the infinity

tattoo on the back of my neck over to my other shoulder. His hands are gliding

down past my hips, playing with the stings on my bikini and my heart rate

spikes as I imagine him untying it, exposing me to the pool. But he doesn’t

stop. His hands glide down my thighs, as far as he can go without pulling

himself underwater. I can’t help the flick of my hips that comes at his touch

and I’m not sure if it is a reaction to tickling or my need for him. His breath

hitches and I do it, voluntarily, again.

His hands come to my hips and he grips

them, stilling me. “If you don’t stop, I will take you in the pool. Right now.

No matter who sees.”

I am beginning to feel dizzy when I realize I’m holding my breath, I

let it out in a rush trying to fight the urge to flick my hips. I want this man

and I don’t even know his name.

Excerpt Two:

“Champagne?” He says and that husky ring in

his voice is back and I can see he is watching me take my shoes off and this

time, I can see his erection in his pants and it steals my breath away. He

steps toward the dresser he was leaning on only a few moments ago and places

the bottle, glasses and my phone on the dresser then reaches for his jacket. I

watch as it slips from his shoulders and he hangs it from the mirror over the

dresser. He catches me watching him and he smirks. I watch as he loosens his

tie and begins to unbutton his shirt. My mouth goes dry as I start to see the

skin of his chest appear between the buttons.

His long fingers work quickly to finish off

the buttons until he reaches the button of his pants. I can’t see what he’s

doing but I hear the unmistakable sound of a zipper going down and his shirt

comes out.

The next thing I know, his tie is laying

across the dresser and he is slowly sliding his shirt down his shoulders. It’s

like watching the most beautiful strip tease in the world. His shoulders are

defined by muscle and I watch as it slips down his back, further exposing himself

to me and I’m no longer breathing.

I’m shocked to see, on his left shoulder,

is a tattoo. I can’t quite make it out from here, but it appears to be letters

and some type of wing design. Not at all something I’d expect to see on this

man. Slowly he turns around and the tattoo on his shoulder is not his only

tattoo. Over his left peck, extending onto his shoulder and down to his elbow

is a broad tribal design that just accents the way muscles on display for me now.

“Breathe Dacotah.” He says and I feel my

eyes, heavy with desire slowly slide up to look him in the eyes. They are milk

chocolate again and I want to run my hands through his brown hair.

I watch as he stalks toward me, he kicks

off one of his shoes, followed by the other, along his path to me. Then, just

like that, he is on his knees in front of me. His hands are sliding down my

right leg, the one that is still wearing the shoe I hadn’t gotten off.

His hands are soft and warm, leaving goosebumps

in their wake. He takes my foot in his hand and works on untying the canvas

from my leg. I shiver as he slides the shoe from my foot.

His hands slide back up my leg, my eyes

roll up into my head and I want to plop back on the bed, just to break the

crazy eye contact we have going on, but I can’t. I’m frozen with anticipation

at what he’s going to do next. I feel his hands as they reach the hem of my

sundress and I don’t stop him when his hands slide underneath of it and I feel

his fingers craze my pussy lips and I groan.

“So beautiful.” He breathes and I feel his

hands seeking the waist of my panties, then his fingers slip in underneath and

his eyes are begging for my permission to remove them. I lift my hips in silent

invitation for him to continue. He smiles and begins to slid them down my

thighs, to my calfs and off. I half expect him to take them and sniff them, but

he doesn’t, he’s too much of a gentleman for that.


hands glide along my legs on their journey back to where they were moments ago.

My hands begin to shake from holding myself up. He stands between my legs and

leans in, placing his own hands on either side of my hips. Our noses are a hair

shy of touching and he leans in a little closer. My hands give out and I lower

myself onto my elbows, all while he is right there, poised and ready to kiss
