Chapter One
 

 “Jesus H. Christ, Ramirez! Can you not to get us killed before we get there,” Donovan growled.

“Sorry, cariƱo, but there is no time to be worried about your delightful ass bouncing on the seat when we have to find a missing kid.”

“I told you to stop calling me darling!”

“Ramirez…” Brock sighed.

Their constant bickering wasn’t unusual, so he ignored it and focused on the scene ahead. Multiple police cars parked outside the house he’d called the local PD on. The house he knew had the latest missing person they had been searching for.

“Oh, God!” Fear laced Donovan’s whisper.

They were thinking the same thing. That whoever kidnapped little Kyler Jones had killed her. That his request for the county to get to the house in question had been too late. His gaze roamed the area through the darkness of the early evening. Multitudes of tall willows surrounded the large house set in the middle of nowhere. Perfect. If he’d been looking for a place to do some of the things the person in that house was known for, this was the right spot. There wasn’t a body around for miles. Nobody to get help. Nobody to hear the screams.

Hi! I'm Milly (AKA April Angel) I love to write sexy stories. They're usually either paranormal or contemporary with a large dose of heat. My paranormal stories can be anything from wolf-shifters (my favorites) to witches, demons and anything in between. I was born the prettiest part of the Caribbean known as the Dominican Republic. Currently, I live in New York City with my hubby, the bossy kiddo and our little dog "Needy Speedy". Don't ask.

When I'm not working some really long hours at the day job, or hanging out in the awful life-sucking invention known as Facebook, messaging my bestie in the UK or shopping with my sis Julie, then I can be found watching scary movies. Buuut when I'm not doing that, I'm usually writing because the voices won't shut up.

I am addicted to shoe shopping, chocolate (but who isn't, right?) and Dunkin' Donuts coffee.

Come by and visit me! I love to meet new readers!

Blurb

 

Nia and Conns wedding will be fairytale perfectif their siblings can get along.

 

Free-spirited, anti-establishment Sara has always been on the outside of her familys fairytale mold. Now shes being forced smack into the middle of it at her sister Nias wedding. Alongside the cocky and annoyingly sexy best manConns cop brother.

 

Curtis doesnt buy in to organized romance and fairytales. But for his brother, hell throw on a tux and fake it for a few hours. His flak vest would have been a better choice around the maid of honor. He should have brought his handcuffs too, because somebody needs to restrain the dark-haired spitfireand hes just the man for the job.

 

One night to indulge the spark between them, then goodbyethat was the agreement. Curtis isnt looking for a relationship and he sure doesnt want a troublemaker for a girlfriend. The last thing Sara needs in her daily life is a cop looking over her shoulder, no matter how hot he is.

But giving in to their chemistry is much more fun than giving it up

 


Excerpt

 

The pastor wrapped up the rehearsal with a reminder of when everybody needed to arrive tomorrow. Nia practically jumped into Conns arms. Forget about waiting to kiss the bride, Conn laid one on his bride-to-be right then and there.

Sara had to admit, it was a hot one. Kind of had her rethinking her decision about the sexless weekendand the tattooed cop.

Everybody back to the house for barbecue and beer. Her dad waved his hand in front of him, as if the simple action finalized the command. You too, Ben. This, he directed at the pastor. Bring a date if youd like, weve got plenty of food and drinks.

Thanks, Peter. No lady in my life at the moment, but Id love to join you all after I lock up here.

Great. Dad shot her a hopeful look that included a wink. Well see you there.

Oh, for crying out loud. It wasnt enough that shed agreed to be the pink-satin-wearing sidekick in Nias fairytale wedding, now her dad wanted to set her up with a freaking pastor? Her family really needed to get with the program. The one where she was a lost cause in the growing-up and settling-down departments.

While the Lawler and Chambers family units hovered around the glowing couple, Sara beelined it toward the outside aisle, and temporary freedom.

Hey, a deep, husky voice called as she reached the vestibule.

Not her dad. Not the pastor or Conn, either. That left two menConns father or his brother. Sara only had fifty bucks spending money to get her through to payday next week, but shed bet it on the brother. A voice that sexy had to belong to a hard-bodied hottie with lots of ink.

She paused, turned, and won the self-imposed bet.

Last one to show up, now the first one to leave. Conns brother took a few more steps, positioning himself between Sara and the door. He tucked his hands into the front pockets of some fine-fitting jeans. Youre not trying to skip out on the rehearsal party, are you? His stance and tone were casual. His pointed remarks, not so much.

Aww, isnt this sweet? We havent even been formally introduced and already youre devastated at the thought of an evening without me.

His eyes twinkled and the corner of his mouth twitched. Curtis Lawler, Conns older brother. He didnt offer a hand to shake. Just stepped closer, completely invading her personal space. And youre Sara.

Figured that out on your own, detective, or did they show you my mug shot in advance to make things easier?

Its Constable first-class, but thats a mouthful, even for one that works as well as yours. Probably easiest if you call me sir.

Never going to happen, lawman. She tried to sidestep him and he mirrored the action, halting her getaway without laying a finger on her. But damn, he might as well have touched her, because every inch of her skin had goose bumps from the electricity between them.

Nevers a long time.Curtisgaze locked with hers and a wicked smile curved his sensual lips. And for the record, Im not a patient man.

EXCERPT:



Jake
The moment I lay my eyes on her, I know….I know she is my one. Her expressive eyes captivate my own, imprisoning my thoughts. Her angelic face shines like a beacon calling to me, and my heart is helpless to stop it. It answers its call only to be denied, swiftly. I never thought I’d experience the feeling most pussy men feel of ‘their world stopping’ when they see their soul mate, or whatever the hell they call it. My world definitely stopped…it stopped and fucking shattered to pieces since there is no way in hell it would ever happen because she’s taken. Not by just anyone…she’s with my best friend. What does that make me? I’ve been asking myself that since she got here. So, I suck it up and remain quiet, I stay away from her and try to blend in, until Dylan calls me.

“Jake, come here! I’d like you to meet Trish.” Dylan yells. There is no way I can avoid this.

I give Dylan a chin nod. “Hey, man. What’s up?”

“Jake, this is my precious Trish. Honey, my best friend Jake.”

She’s even more breath taking up close. She’s so petite with her long, silky, brown hair and expressive eyes that seem to see through me. Her flawless, delicate skin seems to glow against Dylan’s tanned arms, her kissable lips stretch into a magnificent smile that lights up my world and breaks my world, all at the same time.

“Hi, Trish.” I’m dying to hug her, but seeing my best friend’s smiling face full of pride stops me. I extend my hand, regretfully, settling for a hand shake.

Dylan releases her, and as she grabs my hand, the moment her skin touches mine, heat travels from my fingertips straight to my heart and shoots its way fast and hard to my dick. I can’t control myself; I pull her in for a hug. Against all logical reason, and against all odds, four words leave my mouth.

I whisper in her ear. “You are so beautiful.”

She rewards me with yet another heart stopping smile. I can’t look away, even when she does. She’s back in Dylan’s arms, and my heart aches. Brian nudges me and signals for me to go around back. We both excuse ourselves, and for the first time since Trish got here, I’m able to breathe properly.

Brian doesn’t waste time and confronts me right away. Obviously, he wants to nip this in the bud.

“What was that about, Jake?” His accusatory tone puts me in a defensive mode.

“What’s what?” I act as though I don’t know what he’s talking about. Fear slowly works its way up my body, straight to my stupid brain. If Brian noticed, did anyone else?

“Don’t mess with me. I saw the look you gave Trish. Don’t, Jake. Do not cross that line.” His eyes not leaving mine, his tone low interlaced with a warning.

I scrub my face with my hand. “Don’t you think I know? It’s just a stupid crush, alright? I’m sure a good fuck would fix it.”

I start laughing, while looking at Brian. I need to deflect this situation ASAP.

“You shouldn’t really talk, dude. You’ve been eyeing my sister, and not once have I stopped you, asshole!”

Brian told me a couple of months ago he wanted to date my sister, but he refused to make the move, only because he doesn’t want to mess with our friendship. He respects my dad and me, too much. Bullshit excuse if I’ve ever heard one. Plus, he said, that she’s older and might not want to have a relationship with a younger guy.

“Don’t go there, Jake. I told you how I feel about her, and why I refuse to make a move, besides she’s not with anyone. Trish is with Dylan. Do I need to remind you, he’s your best friend?” He forcefully asks, pointing his finger at me.

With my hands on my waist, I look at him, seriousness blanketing my face.

“Brian, what do you think I’ll do? I’m not going to deny I feel a different pull every time I look into her eyes…I can’t describe it. It’s as if I’m drawn to her, a force pulling me to her,” I start shaking my head. “But, I know my place, Brian. You know me, man. I won’t hurt D like that.”

He sighs. “I know, Jake. It’s just when I saw you look at her, I’ve never seen you look at anyone like that. It’s as if everything stopped. You couldn’t even tear your eyes away from her. Just pray Dylan didn’t notice it.”

As we walk back, my eyes search around, looking for her. She’s seated, sandwiched between Roxy and Tami. I could tell they love her, already. I notice Cody eyeing Roxy, and as I turn toward Brian, he too is looking at Tami, the same way Cody is looking at Roxy. Damn, all three of us are looking at three girls who can never be ours. I search for Dylan, but he isn’t around. Why would he not be attached to Trish baffles my mind. If I were him, I would be…like white on rice.

   
      As my eyes wander back to Trish, I promise myself I will be a friend to her, no matter what. There’s no way I could not be around her. I am fucking doomed. How could I forget such a face, but most importantly, how could I deny the pull I feel for her…how can I stop it…control it? I don’t think I could break it, even if I tried….it just simply is… unbreakable.









I’m a middle child, and no, I don’t suffer from the middle child syndrome. According to my parents, I’m the craziest, and I think, my husband and children agree with them.

Besides the births of my two children, my husband’s successful transplant is one of the most memorable moments of my crazy life! After dealing with two bouts of cancer, my husband served as an inspiration to me and my children. I’m privileged to be married and go on this crazy ride, we call life, with a man who doesn’t know the meaning of giving up.

I’m known as The Crazy Cat Lady, in the Wanted World. Am I crazy? Well, the jury is still out on that one, but I’d like to think I can make one person smile with my craziness.
