Love, In The Fast Lane
Rie Warren
(Carolina Bad Boys #2)
Published: December 11, 2014 by Rie Warren

New York Times bestselling paranormal author, Nicky—Nick—Love is anything but successful in love. For years he’s lost himself in his writing career, but now he’s ready to get back to his rebel-boy roots. While restoring a motorcycle at Stone’s Auto Service, he meets the Wildcat of his dreams. She’s a shock to the system for the romance writer who doesn’t remember a damn thing about wooing a woman.

Cool-as-ice, Catarina “Wildcat” Steele is utterly untouchable until Nicky ignites a spark she can’t control. Their electric attraction explodes as Nicky pursues her, but he comes bearing the baggage of a family tragedy he’s hidden from everyone. He knows love has no guarantees.

Their passionate romance falls apart when Nicky discovers Cat’s secret rivals his own. The truth about her past reopens Nicky’s raw wounds and awakens a ghost he never laid to rest. He doesn’t know how to have Cat, and now he can’t trust her. Will they be torn apart . . . or tamed by love?

An Excerpt from Love, In the Fast Lane:

We herded with about a hundred other people toward the towering fairground gates. Waiting in line to buy tickets, we joined hands. Our breath mingled and our lips touched as we shuffled along through the pen that would deliver us to ultimate fried pickles/butter/Snickers/funnel cake heaven . . . or death by cholesterol overload.
As we surged with the crowd toward the midway of South Carolina’s biggest fair, I mentioned, “Ya know, this is the perfect place for a zombie apocalypse.”
“A zombie what?”
“Zombie Doom. Think about it. People already screaming on rides, high fences, huge crowds and no way out—excellent undead feeding grounds.”
She continued to give me the crazy eye. “You truly are strange.”
“C’mon. Don’t tell me you don’t know what I’m talkin’ about.” I did the zombie shuffle-grunt, and felt like a total tool until she clasped my hand and planted a kiss on my cheek.
“Must be a writer thing.” She smiled.
I liked this side of Wildcat—playful, flirty, freakin’ hot. We decided to hit the rides before the food because nausea and green face were not good first date ingredients. People crushed around us on the thoroughfare. The lights were blinding. The ride lines long and winding, and carnies drew attention to their games booths with ear-bashing rock music.
It was awesome.
Holding hands with Cat while we waited for the Flying Bobsleds, I murmured in her ear, “So you really have all my books?”
She rolled her eyes and nodded.
“Hardback, Mr. Love.” She was breathy, sexy, seductive . . .
“And you still don’t want my autograph?”
“Maybe a little.”
Hmm. A little? You weren’t saying that last week.”
“Maybe you can sign something for me . . .” Her hand brushed the front of my jeans just enough to wake up my cock and put it on high alert. Scandalous . . .
I loved the way her hair flipped all over the place and the grin on her face was as permanent as her throaty laugh and high screams as we did the carnival circuit from the Gravitron to the Pirate Ship to the Ghost Train. All the fair ride classics.
In the Ferris wheel, we stalled out at the top. I stopped noticing the cool bite of the air when Cat draped one lean leg over mine. Her thigh nudged the long stretch in my jeans that quickly formed a solid erection.
“I like you this way, Nick.”
I leaned my neck back when she started stroking the strained cords of my throat with her tongue. I stared at her through low lids. “How’s that?”
“Relaxed.” Her palm slid along the curve of my hard-on and up over my drum-tight stomach. “Really sexy.” She nipped the line of my jaw, rasped her tongue on the stubble. “Rugged.”
With a twist of her fingers through my hair, she brought my face to hers for a deep and demanding kiss.
“Not feeling so relaxed anymore, darlin’,” I bit out when she broke the kiss.
She laughed and whooped when the Ferris Wheel began its descent.

About the Author:

Rie is the badass, sassafras author of Sugar Daddy and the Don’t Tell series–a breakthrough trilogy that crosses traditional publishing boundaries beginning with In His Command. Her latest endeavor, the Carolina Bad Boys series, is fun, hot, and southern-sexy.

A Yankee transplant who has traveled the world, Rie started out a writer—causing her college professor to blush over her erotic poetry without one ounce of shame. Not much has changed. She swapped pen for paintbrushes and followed her other love during her twenties. From art school to marriage to children and many a wild and wonderful journey in between, Rie has come home to her calling. Her work has been called edgy, daring, and some of the sexiest smut around.

You can connect with Rie via the social media hangouts listed on her website. She is represented by Saritza Hernandez, Corvisiero Literary Agency.
