Law Of Attraction

With: Alison Bliss

Congratulations to "Kim M.", the winner in Alison's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!

Thank you so much for allowing me to stop by and share a fun excerpt from my newest release, Law of Attraction! This is the third book in my Tangled of Texas series, but each book in this series features a different couple and can be read as a standalone.

Law of Attraction is about a single mom who is turning a run-down chicken farm into a Bed & Breakfast. She has agreed to let a friend’s nephew stay with her in exchange for his handyman skills. What she doesn’t know is that Seth is a retired member of an elite group of ex-military soldiers. In other words, he has a special skill-set, all right, but it has nothing to do with hammering nails.

I hope you all enjoy the fun excerpt and will check out Law of Attraction!

Excerpt from Law of Attraction


A shirtless Seth stood next to a charred metal drum where he was burning rotten barn wood and dead branches that he’d thrown off the roof earlier this morning. It was hard to believe that he’d been staying with us for almost three weeks and I still hadn’t gotten any better about hiding my reaction to his bare skin.

He grinned playfully at me, but the intensity in his eyes didn’t match his smile. The way he looked at me disturbed me on some level. Not because I worried that he wouldn’t be able to control himself around me. It was more like I worried that I wouldn’t be able to control myself around him.

Whether I liked admitting it or not, something ran hot and deep between the two of us. And that something lit a fire inside me every time I was near him. It was unlike anything I’d ever felt before which was scary, since I knew he wasn’t the type of guy who stuck around. Unfortunately, longevity was not something he seemed to be looking for.

Sighing, I walked past him on my way into the barn.

“Need something?” he asked, following me inside.

“Yeah, the riding lawn mower,” I said, walking over to it where it was parked against the wall. “I’m going to plow down all those weeds that have been invading my yard.” I shoved the gear shifter on the mower into neutral and pushed it away from the wall, steering it backward out the barn door. I stopped once I got outside.

“Um, it’s going to take you a long time doing it that way.”

Shaking my head, I laughed. “The reverse on it sticks sometimes so it’s easier to just push the mower free of the barn before getting on it. There’s too much stuff in there to turn it around inside.”

“I see,” he said, reaching his hand up to scratch the back of his neck. His muscled bicep tightened and his abs flexed from the movement.

I tried not to look, but my eyes automatically fixed on his smooth, broad chest, and I scowled. Damn it. Why couldn’t I stop looking at him like that?

“Problem?” he asked.

My gaze lifted to his. “I’m starting to think you don’t own any shirts.”

He shrugged. “It’s hot out. What’s the big deal? Does it bother you that I’m not wearing one?”

“Not at all,” I told him truthfully. “It just makes it a little hard to concentrate at times when you’re walking around here half naked.”

He chuckled. “Half naked, huh? Well, this isn’t quite what I would consider half naked. Besides, it can’t be all that distracting. I’m sure you’ve seen a shirtless man before. Maybe even a pantless one, too.”

I bit my lip and lowered my head. “Um, yeah. Probably.”

One eyebrow rose. “Been a while, has it?”

“You have no idea.” I cranked the mower and throttled the machine up to end this rather embarrassing conversation about my nonexistent sex life.

Seth raised his voice so I could hear him over the machine. “I could take care of that for you.”

God, he sounded like Jeremy. But why were the words so much hotter coming from Seth? “I already told you we aren’t having sex, remember?”

He grinned. “Okay, but I was actually talking about the mowing.”


Law of Attraction

Sometimes fate has a plan of its own...

For single mom Bobbie Jo Weston, finding a husband is not on her to-do list. She's focused on turning a run-down chicken farm into a Bed & Breakfast. She agrees to let a friend’s nephew stay with her in exchange for his handyman skills, but she wasn’t counting on the super sexy Seth Landry being that guy.

Seth has a special skill-set, all right, but it has nothing to do with hammering nails. As a retired member of The Resistance—an elite group of ex-military soldiers—his dark, unsettling past haunts him. He needs a place to lay low, and an out-of-the-way B&B is nothing short of perfect. The blonde beauty doesn’t trust men, and he doesn't plan on sticking around long enough to change her mind.

The closer they get, the more they can't seem to keep their hands off each other. And while Bobbie holds on to her fear of watching another man walk out of their lives, Seth's mere presence has put them all in jeopardy. The only way to ever be free of his dangerous past is for him to accept one last mission...
