About Loving Her Crazy
It was just supposed to be one crazy night...
Iris Clayton is supposed to be on a tropical island, soaking up the sun and a few dozen mojitos. Instead, she’s snowbound in Chicago overnight, holding out hope the morning flight isn’t cancelled. Good thing there’s a hot cowboy to keep her company. And it doesn’t hurt that Mr. Tall, Calm, and Sun-Streaked can make her tremble with one sultry look from under his well-worn hat.
Montana rancher Nash Wallace sucks at ice skating, has no clue what a selfie is, and may be a tad averse to breaking and entering, but being with Iris makes him want to bend a few rules. Or, hell, throw them out the window altogether. She’s fun, spontaneously crazy, and can rock a Muppet fur coat like no one’s business. He’s falling hard and fast, but wanting to spend his life with someone after one night is insane.
Except, nothing has ever felt so right, and neither of them wants the night to end…

An Excerpt from Loving Her Crazy
He leaned down to kiss her, and she rose up on her toes to meet his lips. Only to remember too late that she was in skates. On ice.
Iris and Nash grabbed at each other again, but nothing was keeping them from going down. Iris shrieked as her feet flew out from under her. Nash tried to twist, a move that saved her from landing flat on her back. Instead, she landed painfully on one knee, the rest of her body landing squarely on Nash’s chest.
He ended up half on his back, half on one side. With her sprawled on top of him.
“Sorry,” she said, trying to crawl off him without damaging any body parts.
“No prob—uhhh,” he grunted when she used him as leverage to push herself up.
“Damn. Sorry,” she muttered again.
She managed to get to her feet, slowly, and waited a second to be sure she was stable before she offered him a hand. He took it, wrapping his hand around hers like he was going to arm wrestle her. She pulled as hard as she could but he regained his feet all on his own. It had been like pulling on a tree trunk. It was a good thing he hadn’t broken anything, or he’d have had to lie there until someone could help her lift him.
“You okay?” he asked, his hands quickly skimming over her.
She was, but was very tempted to say she was not, if it meant a more thorough examination.
“I’m fine. Sorry about that. Didn’t mean to pull us on our asses. Again. Guess I just got a little distracted.” She gave him a wry smile and he chuckled.
“Hmm, well, I’d apologize but I can’t say that I’m sorry I have that kind of effect on you.”
She released a breathy sigh. “You have no idea.”
“Is that so?” He pulled her to him again, cupping her cheek to raise her face to him. He leaned down until his mouth barely brushed against hers. “Then you better hang on tight,” he murmured.
His lips descended, and Iris sank into him, molding herself to him as best she could through a million layers of clothes and the perils of the frozen danger zone beneath their feet. His lips were somehow soft and firm at the same time, and so exquisitely warm that she momentarily forgot that they stood in the middle of a frozen rink, snow falling all around them. Heat emanated from the lips caressing hers, spreading through her, making her burn for him. He pulled back for a second to cup her face in both his hands, and the cold air that swirled between them was shocking in its intensity. Then he was back, his mouth more insistent, his hands cradling her face. She opened to him, letting him explore, taste. He could have devoured her whole, and she would have willingly submitted.
Someone hooted in the background, but the noise was so faint she barely noticed. In that moment, there was nothing but him in her world. Nothing but that musk scent that she couldn’t identify but was so supremely Nash that she wanted to bottle it and swim in it every day for the rest of her life. Nothing but the heat that filled her from where his lips moved hungrily over hers, stealing her breath and, if she wasn’t careful, her heart. Good God, one kiss and she was addicted. She didn’t want to stop.
When he finally released her, she merely stared up at him, unable to do more than blink, stunned and reeling from the absolute best first kiss she’d ever had in her life. That was it. He’d fly out of her life the next day, and she’d have to become a nun because nothing, ever, was going to top that.
She should be embarrassed at her reaction, but Nash didn’t give her time to let that feeling take hold.
“Would it sound too unmanly of me to say wow?” he asked.
Iris laughed, a short burst of pent-up air exhaling in an eruption of happiness that made no sense to her. “Not at all,” she assured him. “Though I was thinking more along the lines of holy shit.”
He grinned and her stomach flip-flopped. What the hell was happening to her? Lust, she understood. And she was feeling plenty of that. If it wasn’t cold enough to freeze off the body parts she most wanted to take for a spin, she’d strip them both right here and do what they could to melt the rink they stood on. But this wasn’t just lust. She seemed to be in serious danger of going all Disney-princess—running amok in the park whilst singing of true love’s first kiss to all the furry little animals. And she was just not that kind of girl.

About the Crazy Love series
About Driving Her Crazy (book one) - Released: August 17, 2015
Cher Debusshere hates being the black sheep of her posh, well-to-do family almost as much as she hates driving-which is exactly what she's forced to do when her flight home for her perfect sister's wedding is grounded. Fan-freakin'-tastic. Then a hot guy offers to share both the car rental and the driving duties...only to drive her crazy by assuming she's just some spoiled little rich girl.
Mechanic Nathaniel "Oz" Oserkowski is about as blue-collar as they come. There's never been a time he hasn't worked his ass off, and he's determined to prove it to the gorgeous princess in the passenger seat. As the miles pass, they bait and needle each other...until their lust and longing gets so hot it nearly overheats the engine.
They have nothing in common. Hell, they can barely stand each other. But sometimes it takes a journey to change the destination...
Sometimes a kiss is so much more...
Single mom Lena Oserkowski just wants to relax at the 5-star resort where her brother is getting married. Oh, and figure out how to make one of her businesses successful enough to support her son. Her focus is thrown out of whack when Elliot Debusshere, twin brother of her new sister-in-law, swims to her rescue at the hotel pool.
Elliot is disillusioned with his wealthy, playboy lifestyle and wants nothing more than to bring some meaning and purpose to the charity he runs. When he rescues Lena from a case of heat exhaustion and meets her son Tyler, he has no idea the answer to his problems might have just fallen in his lap. Literally.
With Lena's ideas and Elliot's know-how, they might just be able to make their ventures a success. Except pleasure has a sneaky way of mixing with their business, leaving both dazed and confused. Charming as he is, Elliot isn't father material. And there's no room for a single mom and her child in his life. While the attraction between them isn't easily squashed, there's no telling the lengths his family will go to prevent a relationship.
