Contains explicit EROTICA sections; for mature audiences only.

Synopsis

 

Nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, the beautiful town of Paradise is the perfect place to raise a family, have dinner at the local diner…and chase a ruthless killer. 

Jacob Stone is an undercover DEA Agent dead-set on getting vengeance for his sister’s death. When his sources tell him that the drug dealer he’s been searching for will soon be setting up a distribution center in the seemingly innocent town of Paradise, he moves in for the kill. 

What Jake wasn’t counting on, however, was falling in love with gorgeous Harmony McKinnon – the ex-wife of the man he was determined to eliminate. 

Harmony McKinnon never believed she’d find love again….not after the horrors she lived through with her ex-husband. When she meets secretive Jacob Stone and soon falls in love, she never expected that her life would be in danger again…or that the man she’d come to trust would betray her. 

Can Jake make Harmony understand his motives? Can Harmony trust him in spite of the past? Will they have their happily ever after? 

Not everything is as it seems in the sleepy, little town of Paradise, Tennessee! 

Hard as Stone is the second book in the Passion in Paradise: The Men of the McKinnon Sisters Series, but is a stand-alone novel (165,000 words) that can be easily read without reading the first book

Hard as Stone by Sarah O’Rourke — Non-erotic excerpt

Stepping between her spread legs, Jake held her squirming body still as he fought not to laugh at her theatrics.  “Calm down and settle,” he ordered against her temple, holding her firmly against him.

“I could have gotten on board with the pink carpet.  I might even have been able to wrap my mind around a puppy.  Maybe!” she railed, smacking his arm as she spat each sentence. “But dropping the bomb that you want me and my daughter to move in with you just takes the cake!”  Jerking her gaze to him as she heard a low chuckle escape his mouth, she shook her head furiously.  “Are you laughin’ at me?  Trust me, I don’t find any of this funny, Jake!”

“I’m not laughin’ at you, darlin’.  I’m just a little amused at our situation.  See, I thought I’d been real clear from the outset about what I wanted.  Are you honestly gonna tell me that this is a surprise, babe?” he asked, capturing her frantic eyes with his and holding them.  “Look me in the eye and tell me that you didn’t realize that I was in this for the long haul.  I told you weeks ago that I was staying in Paradise because of you, Harmony.  And in the last month, I’ve gotten as wrapped up in Heaven as I am in her momma.  Where the fuck did you think this was going?”

“I don’t know!” Harmony exploded in a burst of temper.  Seriously, this is not the conversation she’d seen happening tonight.  “Tonight, I’d hoped that it was leading to the bedroom, but I hadn’t thought too far beyond that.”  Really, she’d just finally worked up the courage to get intimate with a man again after years of celibacy, and now he wanted more

“Oh, the bedroom is definitely our destination for the evening, sweetheart,” he agreed with a slow, wicked grin.  “But a night stolen here and there isn’t gonna satisfy me, Harmony.  I’m a selfish bastard. I want everything you’ve got to give me.  Your beautiful body is only part of that.  Oh, it’s a gorgeous part, but I want the heart and mind, too. ”

“Jesus, Jake,” Harmony muttered weakly, her head falling against his shoulder as she sagged against him.  “It’s all or nothing with you, isn’t it?”

“Told ya, baby.  I’m a selfish bastard,” he whispered, wrapping his arms around her.  “The good news is that I’m your selfish bastard.  Yours and Heaven’s.  And I’ll do whatever I need to do to keep you both safe and protected and to make sure you never doubt that you’re both loved and wanted.”

“I don’t know anything about you,” she whispered into his neck as her heart did a tap dance in her chest.  What Zeke had said earlier in the day resonated in her brain.  None of them really knew anything about Jake.  She didn’t know if he’d ever been married or if he had any allergies or if he slept on the right or left side of the bed, for God’s sake.  How the hell could she even consider living with a man she knew next to nothing about?  How could that ever work between them?

He tilted his head for a second, then said, “No, I’ve never been married, I don’t have any allergies that I know about, and I sleep on whichever side is closest to the door.”

Closing her eyes, Harmony grimaced and burrowed her face against the space between his neck and shoulder.  His familiar woodsy scent mixed with sweat and man comforted her, relaxing a little of the tension that hand taken up residence in her back.   “I said all that out loud?” she asked in a tiny voice.

“You did,” he acknowledged against her ear.  “And to answer your last question, this thing will work between us because I refuse to accept otherwise.  We’ll find our way a day at a time, darlin’, but we will find it.”

Hard as Stone by Sarah O’Rourke – Erotic Excerpt

“Roll on your side, baby. I want to take this sweet pussy from behind tonight.”

“But I like feeling you on top of me,” Harmony said, her cheeks burning with embarrassment at her admission.

“Sweetheart, I love being inside you any way I can get in there, but if you’re on your side, I can give you my dick and my finger on that slick little love button of yours.  Trust me, darlin’, you’ll love it when I push that button,” he promised against her lips, nipping her chin with his teeth.

Harmony’s breath caught at the rough edge in his voice and she wasted no time doing as he bid, sighing when his warm lips dropped a kiss against the side of her neck to lick her delicious flesh.  She knew the reward that could be found in Jake’s arms if she took her cues from him, and he didn’t disappoint her when his hand dropped between her legs and two fingers explored her saturated folds.

“So wet, baby,” he growled his appreciation, swirling his finger over her swollen clit.  “I love that,” he encouraged against her ear when her legs spread and her hips bucked against his hand.  “Love how soaked and ready you are for me.  Let’s see if you’re luscious little body is ready to take my cock yet,” he muttered, twitching his finger against her nub again as he pierced her with two fingers and pulled a low cry from her lips.

Harmony moaned as his fingers impaled her, fucking deep.  “Oh, God, Jake,” she choked, rocking her hips back into his pelvis as his fingers withdrew only to sink in again a heartbeat later. 

“Oh, yeah, all this sticky sweet honey says you’re more than ready for me, Sweetness,” he growled against her neck as he pulled his fingers from the tight heat of her pussy.  “You want my cock, darlin’?  You want me to fill you up and take away the ache?” he asked, his words vibrating against her skin as one hand curled around her breast and squeezed the firm globe gently.

“Yes,” she whimpered, pushing her head back against his throat as his fingers stroked through her swollen folds again and teased her clit.  “Do it, Jake,” she begged, wriggling her ass against his hardness.  His cock rimmed her entrance, offering her just a taste of heaven, but never truly delivering on the promise.   

He sucked the vulnerable flesh at her neck; she felt his teeth scrape the shell of her ear.  “Tell me first, Harmony.  Who do you belong to?” he asked her, plucking her nipple with his thumb and forefinger before tugging it gently and sending a white hot pulse of pleasure from her stomach to her pussy.  “Who does this gorgeous body belong to?”

“You,” she managed in a voice strangled by pleasure.  Plying her nipple with one hand and her clit with the other, she felt like she was one long exposed nerve ending.  “Stop teasing, Jake, and fuck me.”  She panted roughly as she wriggled against his onslaught.

Meet Cain & Jake 2b

Author Interview

1.  How long have you been writing?  We’ve been writing together for a little over 5 years now.  Each of us was writing separately before that, and we met in a writing group!  From there, we became best friends very quickly, and started editing each other’s work.  Then we just seemed to glide into writing together!  Somehow, it works for us!

2.  Where did you get the idea for your series?  The Passion in Paradise series grew from our joint like of small town life.  We both grew up in small towns that closely resemble Paradise, TN, and we love to write about characters that we know!   Being from the South, we have a strong affinity for family-type scenarios with strong women and take-charge men.  And we also know that in a small town, EVERYONE knows everyone else’s business…and that’s a lot of fun to write!! 

3.    Is there a story behind the choosing of the characters names? The bulk of them have biblical names. Faith, Heaven, the twins Cain and Abel, etc…  Well, since we were both raised in Sunday School, it can be said that these names were ingrained into us at an early age…although we’re fairly certain the Almighty or Sister Beulah wouldn’t necessarily approve of everything we put in this series!  It’s not uncommon for people in small towns in East TN or the South to have Biblical names.  You have no idea how many kids we went to school with that were named Matthew, Mark, Luke or John…and some of them had double-names, such as John Mark or Matthew Thomas or James Jeremiah. Sometimes they were diminutives, too – such as Big Matt (Daddy) and Little Matt (son).  This was just part of life in a small, Southern town! 

4.  Do you have a favorite character in your novels?  Crazy One is partial to Zeke….Crazy Two loves Patience…and Abel!  

5.  How many books do you plan to write in theParadise series?  There will be at least six books – one for each of the sisters, then 2 more for other couples in the town…and we have ideas for at least a full dozen!!  So…who knows?  

6.  Can you give us a sneak peek of book #3 and when it will be released?  Book 3 is Ready, Willing, and Abel — and tells the story of Patience McKinnon and Abel Turner…and what happens when night of passion goes completely off the rails!  Teaser below:

“Thank God I’m not a man lacking self-confidence, Hellion.  Otherwise, you’d be hell on my ego,” Abel groaned, burying his face in the crook of her neck while one arm contracted around her waist, holding her tightly.

 “Oh, no.  Your self-confidence is unmatched,” Patience muttered, still squirming between his hard body and the wall.  “It’s your self-control that needs work.”  Lifting her eyes to Abel’s she narrowed her eyes to slits.  “You’re not getting this, Abel, and you really need to get me here.  Since all the blood in your body seems to have gotten diverted to your dick, I’m gonna speak real slow and in terms that even Dr. Seuss could understand, okay?”

Waiting for a second, she watched one perfectly shaped eyebrow lift on his handsome face in silent askance before she continued.  “I will not fuck you in the hall.  I will not fuck you against this wall.  You should really be a better learner.  I will NOT fuck you, Abel Turner.”

Author Bio

Sarah O’Rourke is the alter ego of two best friends who bonded over their passion for romantic fiction and erotica. Born and raised in the southern United States, one lives near Louisville, Kentucky, while the other resides in Atlanta, Georgia.  Formerly an accountant and a chemist, they are now overworked, stay-at-home moms who adore their children, their husbands…and writing about love in every way possible.

 

Currently focusing on their Passion in Paradise series, they love to write wildly intense romantica stories that have multiple characters, but each book focuses on one specific couple that will ALWAYS have a happy ending…eventually!  The Passion in Paradise series follows the lives of four sisters, who love and infuriate each other – and the men who love them!  Each book is a stand-alone and does NOT require the reader to have read the prior books.

One Happy Blogger!!!

Well Readers, this gal is one happy blogger about now. I am so excited to have the two authors that make up ~ Sarah O’Rourke will be the Spotlight Author(s) today!!!!

I was contacted by the author to read and review both novels here. Currently  I have read Cain’s Salvation. To be honest I was not sure about it at first for I am not much of a military romance reader. Though after I got a few chapters in I was HOOKED!!! As soon as I finished book 1 I was ready to read book 2, Hard as Stone.  Both novels start out with the Heroes POV. Then it flips back and forth between the Hero and the Heroine. Book 1 is a shorter read at just a little over 20 chapters. Book 2 has over 30 chapters. At this time I am on Chapter 12. I had to have my tissues handy for chapters 10 & 11. So I am going to go back to reading now! 

Happy Reading, and drop by the Facebook Blog @

If you can on 6-21-14.

At 10:30 EDT we may have some visitors from the series. 

Look for my BLOG STOP for Cain’s Salvation and Hard as Stone on June 25th.
