“I don’t understand. Why, of all the women in Houston, would you pick me? I am a nobody. And you clearly need someone that is more refined than I could ever be,” I confessed, waving my hand to remind him of his wealth.
“It is for that reason that I chose you, Hanna.”
As he moved from his chair to sit next to me, already my body was becoming overly warm. The wine was also beginning to make me feel fuzzy. Taking the empty glass from my hand, he placed it on the table. It could have been the wine, but all I wanted to do was kiss him. When his eyes met mine, there was nothing to stop me from doing just that. Wrapping my arms around his broad shoulders, I pressed my lips to him in a forceful kiss in which I held nothing back. The best part was that he hadn’t pulled back. Instead he took me into his arms and tenderly kissed me back. I could taste the sweet wine on his lips as his tongue brushed my lips before it invaded my mouth with wet heat. The kiss, although drunken and sloppy, was one to be remembered.
I knew that with a kiss like this, it would lead to much more. Even though I was in no state of mind to refuse, I knew that I would regret it in the morning if I allowed it to continue. Breaking free before things got out of hand, I wiped my hand across my swollen lips and said, “I think it’s time that I left.”
As I stood to my feet, I could feel my surroundings begin to move in all directions. My body swayed back and forth as I tried desperately to hide the fact that I shouldn’t have had that last glass of wine. Holding me close to his body to steady me, Aiden lifted my chin. “I think it would be best if you stayed here tonight. I am in no condition to take you home and Albert has probably retired for the evening.”
Who was I to argue? His point was well made and I wouldn’t be able to afford a taxi to drive me home, nor was I going to take a handout. Nodding my head, I responded, careful not to slur my words. “Wouldn’t want to wake up Albert.”
Putting one foot in front of the other, I concentrated on my steps, careful not to sway too much as I walked toward the house. With one arm around me, Aiden helped me do just that. When we reached the foyer, I looked to the stairs, wondering if I would be tumbling down them in my condition. Walking on a flat surface was one thing, but climbing steps was another. Feeling my apprehension, Aiden scooped me up in his arms and carried me with ease up the stairs. I was beginning to think that he wasn’t as drunk as he implied.
I wasn’t sure where he was taking me since he hadn’t set me down when we reached the top of the stairs. I had faith that he would be a gentleman about this situation and he was. When he opened a door at the end of the hall, I knew that he was taking me to the guest bedroom that he had shown me earlier. Of all the rooms that were on this floor this had been my favorite. It was decorated with light colors of blues and greens and it was the most feminine of all the rooms on the floor.
Pulling back the covers, he placed me gently on the bed. For a moment I wanted him to stay, but knew that it would be a mistake. Settling in, the last thing I remembered before closing my eyes was a tender kiss he placed on my cheek.
Some would call me a little naughty but I see myself as a writer of spicy thoughts. Being an erotic romance writer is something that I never imagined I would be doing. There is nothing more rewarding than to put your thoughts down and sharing them. I began writing three years ago and have enjoyed every minute of it. When I first began writing, I really wasn’t sure what I was going to write. It didn't take me long to realize that romance would be my niche. I believe that every life deserves a little bit of romance, a little spice doesn't hurt either. When I am not writing, I enjoy the company of good friends and relaxing with a delicious glass of red wine.

Title: Blind Date Bet
Series: Man's Best Friend #1
Author: Nicole Flockton
Genre: Adult, Contemporary Military Romance
Coming: January 22, 2019
Page Count: 232 Pages
Published by: Tule Publishing
Never say never...

After loving and losing a soldier once, Isabella Knowles made a vow: No more military men. She’s rebuilt her life and has a classroom full of fifth graders to love, which is more than enough even though her father doesn’t agree. When he sets her up on a blind date, she only goes to humor him -- never dreaming that the man she meets will tempt her to break her one rule.

In theory, Ethan Masters is not opposed to the wife, kids and house with a white picket fence. But he loves his career as a K-9 handler in the air force, and a dream promotion dangles before him like dog tags. While contemplating his future, he accepts a drunken bet for a blind date, never dreaming that the captivating woman fits perfectly into his ideal, all-American dream. Only one problem. She's gun-shy about all things military.

Can Ethan prove to Isabella love is worth the risk?

Blind Date Bet Excerpt © Nicole Flockton 2018

Ethan needed his head examined.
There was no other explanation as to why he was standing in front of a coffee shop, under the simmering Texas summer sun, wearing a bright red fedora. Never, on his grandfather’s grave would he partake in a slam-dunk shotscontest with his buddy, Lincoln Forrest, who was in the army, ever again.
Sober, he never would’ve agreed to a blind date, not after the time Linc had talked him into meeting Kathy Birdland. Talk about disaster from the moment she opened her mouth. He shuddered now remembering the high-pitched twang she emitted and the tobacco-stained teeth that had greeted him when she smiled. He was surprised he hadn’t landed in the Guinness Book of World Records under the shortest date category. Later, he’d found out the real Kathy Birdland had chickened out and paid some random woman fifty bucks to go on the date with him.
And yet, here he waited, on the sidewalk in downtown San Antonio, about to repeat the same mistake.
What he needed to do was swear off tequila shots.
Tequila had led him to wearing a red fedora so school teacher Isabella Knowles would recognize him. He should’ve gone with the more obvious I’m-holding-a-red-rose-because-I’m-a-sucker-on-a-blind-date look. As it was, people were glancing warily at him as they passed, no doubt wondering if he was a pimp or a wannabe drug dealer. Ethan glanced at his watch again. Still another five minutes until his supposed date was due to turn up.
Linc had assured Ethan Isabella was hot. As in H-O-T, hot. She didn’t wear glasses. Wasn’t a spinster with fifty cats. Had all her teeth, which weren’t stained yellow. Didn’t need to dye the gray out of her hair.
He automatically reached down to scratch the back of Sam’s head, but he met fresh air. Of course, his dog wasn’t on this date. He’d left Sam at the base to enjoy her weekend. Although having his K-9 partner standing beside him would distract him from waiting to see if Isabella resembled the bride of Chucky or a Victoria Secret’s runway angel.
“Umm, I know this is going to sound really weird, but are you Ethan Masters?”

My gaze drifted over to Bri, who dropped a couple of the shopping bags next to Mia, and strode over to Shane to hand a bag over to him. She gestured to go change and he disappeared into his room. On her way over to me, she clutched the remaining shopping bag and locked her free hand with mine.
After closing the bedroom door, I turned to face Bri. She dumped the items in the bag on the bed and I sauntered over to stand right behind her, taking in her sweet scent. It no longer felt like my insides were being ground up like hamburger. Wanton waves traveled in every direction that made me want to lock the door and spend the entire day appreciating every aspect of her. I brushed her hair to the side and placed a gentle kiss below her ear. Bri shivered as she picked up a jersey and hat. She put them in my hands, snatched the remaining clothes, and disappeared into the bathroom.
I quickly changed into the snug faded jeans and white Wood jersey she gave me, then played with the bill of the baseball cap to get it adjusted to my liking. As I put it on, Bri returned and I almost dropped to my knees. The light blue raglan T-shirt had a V-cut to it that made it difficult not to look at her amazing cleavage, but what got me was her shorts.
Her tanned legs were on glorious display and to say they were short was an understatement. The pockets came out of the bottom, so it wouldn’t be all that hard to slip a hand up them and reach her hot spot. My dick sprang to life just thinking about it. She tied her hair back into a ponytail and put on a Cubs hat that matched her shirt.
Bri cocked an eyebrow as she tossed her sundress on the bed. “Since you’re staring at me with no shame, I assume you like what I picked out for myself.”
I hauled her into me. “You always look beautiful, but seeing you in these clothes does things to me.”
A mischievous grin curled from her mouth. “Good things or bad things?”
I rocked my body roughly into hers. “Good things. Very good things. You look sexy as hell and I’m having a really hard time keeping my hands and mouth to myself.”
Her face flushed to a dark shade of red as she whispered, “So, don’t keep them to yourself.”
“Don’t tempt me. We have places to be and it’s still not the right time,” I growled.
She frowned. “My patience is growing thin with your insistence on the right time. If it doesn’t happen soon, I might just combust.”
Her tone was close to a whine and I couldn’t help but chuckle. Her eyebrows furrowed deeper, her frustration evident. I kissed her cheek and motioned for her to take the lead on our way out of the bedroom. She released a disgruntled sigh while opening the door. For how hard I already was, it would be a long afternoon trying to resist her sassy mouth and even hotter body, but I was determined to make it a few more hours before making her lips mine.
