New Release Spotlight: Hartstrings by L.L. Collins

Tanner Hart, the All-American bad boy bass guitarist of Jaded Regret, has one motto— play women’s bodies like he does the strings of his guitar— hard, in tune, and giving it his all until the show is over. The only strings he wants attached to him are the ones he plays on the stage.

He has quite the reputation, even with his own band, and he likes it that way. It keeps the truth of who he really is locked deep inside. But there's so much more to him than anyone really knows…

Now that he’s successful, he can afford to find out what really happened to the only girl who’s ever held his heart. The only thing is…will he really want to know the truth?

When Mackenzie ‘Mac’ Shepard finds herself in a situation she’s been in too many times before, she expects to do what she’s always done— cover it up, accept the apologies, and move on. She knows trying to get out is futile. What she doesn’t expect is for the world famous Tanner Hart to burst into her life like a knight in sexy armor.

When their lives collide and hearts get involved, can Tanner keep his hartstrings from being tangled up in his past, or can he make a new kind of music... with his heart?

AJS SUV PULLED INTO Macs driveway, and I stepped out immediately. I wore a pair of dark dress pants, a white dress shirt, and a tie. I couldnt tell you the last time I looked like this. I didnt particularly like it, but it would do. I had a sports jacket in the car for the restaurant.

She opened the door the second my feet hit the front porch. She scanned me from head to toe, her gaze finally meeting mine.

I felt sucker punched. Again.

I thought she was beautiful before. Butthis. This was something altogether.

Mac wore a deep red dress that fit her body like a glove. It cut low enough for me to see a hint of cleavage, but not low enough to be inappropriate. Her hair was up off her shoulders in a sexy twist. A few pieces framed her face. She wore more makeup than usual; her lips painted a ruby red to match her dress. On her feet were red strappy heels that made me weak in the knees.

I immediately regretted that we were going into public.

I stepped closer to her, forcing her to step back into the house. I shut the door behind me.

Tan? Whats the matter?

Is Natalie home?She shook her head no. Then Im sorry,I said.

Her forehead creased. Sorry?

That youll have to reapply that lipstick in a few minutes.Before she could respond, I turned her and pressed her against the front door. My mouth closed over hers, and she whimpered, her hands immediately circling my neck. She opened her mouth, and I dove in, my tongue wrapping with hers. Every other time we did this, I kept my hands to myself.

Not this time.

I skimmed my hands down her slim hips and around to her firm ass, pulling her into me. She stiffened for a fraction of a second before her body melted into mine. I bit and sucked on her tongue, my need for her all-consuming. She shocked the hell out of me by wrapping one of her legs around me and pulling me to her. Our bodies were closer than ever before.

I wanted to touch her bare skin. I needed to touch her bare skin. But first, I had to tell her how I felt.

She couldnt be another lay for me.
