New Release Spotlight: One Night in Tahoe by Kaira Rouda


This is a Hope Falls Kindle World novella! 

Can one night fix a generation of heartache?

Jack Thomas just started working the job of his dreams in Laguna Beach when his dad calls asking for his help. Jack loves his dad but he’s reluctant to miss work, even if it’s for the weekend. With his boss’ blessing, he plans a quick visit to the snowy mountains he used to call home, not expecting anything more than helping his dad and trying to keep warm in a snow storm. What Jack doesn’t know is that heat won’t be a problem.

Sandy Davis is a new real estate agent excited for her first listing presentation at a multi-million dollar home in Lake Tahoe. She has no idea why the home owner picked her, but she’s committed to landing the listing. She makes the drive from Hope Falls to Lake Tahoe as a snowstorm hits. When the front door is opened by a handsome stranger, Sandy’s breathless. What she doesn’t know is that more surprises are waiting inside.

What happens when a huge snowstorm traps two strangers in a beautiful mountain home?

Whats on your mind?Jack smiled, looking at her with his blue eyes that were softer now in the waning light. He sliced a piece of cheese and popped it, along with an almond, into his mouth.
Sorry I was just thinking about the call with my boss. About how lucky I am.Sandy followed his lead, slicing a piece of soft white cheese and spreading it on a cracker before taking a taste. The entire bite melted in her mouth. This is so good.
If you like this, youre going to love dinner.” Jack grinned. “So, tell me about yourself, Sandy. Now that were stuck here together for the night, we might as well get to know each other better.
Sandys heart pounded in her chest as she watched Jack slice a piece of cheese and put it on a cracker before handing it to her. She was a goner. Shed convinced herself shed never find love, shed never be enough for anyone. But having met Jack, she knew she could be. With him.
Do you feel this between us?Her hand covered her big mouth, mortified that shed just blurted that out. She dropped her chin to her chest.
Jack slid his fingers under her chin, lifting it up, forcing her to meet his eyes. Look at me Sandy. I dont know what this is, but Ive never felt anything like this before. Its crazy chemistry, or something. But all I can think about is kissing you.
Sandys heart pounded as she realized he felt it too. This thing between them. She leaned forward, so close to him she could feel his breath on her face. I think we should kiss, then, dont you?
She couldnt believe how bold she was acting. How sure of herself. This was a new Sandy, a Sandy who had the confidence to ask for what she wanted.
Jack cupped her face between his hands and pressed his lips against hers in a tender kiss that caused butterflies in her belly.
Her lips parted and she reached for him.

I’d say I’m down on my luck, but that’s an understatement. I’m flat on my ass. Homeless, hungry and in hiding with my little sister at the age of twenty-one, I’ve never been so desperate. I’ve hit rock bottom when I get an offer I can’t refuse. Sell my body to save my sister? There’s nothing I won’t do to keep her safe. I make the rules and I’m not afraid to defend myself if this rich guy crosses the line. But once I see beneath his cold, calculating fa├žade, the lines aren’t so clear anymore.

She’s an intoxicating mix of tough and vulnerable I’ve never known before. This homeless woman who fits right into my upper-class world is running from someone powerful, and I’ll do whatever it takes to protect her. But Quinn isn’t meant to be controlled, so I’m forced to choose between owning her and loving her. I’ve finally met my match, and I’ll do whatever it takes to make her truly mine.

A cloud of breath forms in front of my face as I step out of my car in my underground garage. Winter is setting in fast, and in typical New York style, it refuses to be ignored.
I press my thumb to the keypad beside the elevator in my garage and step on, arriving at the main level of my warehouse home and hearing the thunk of the automated deadbolt opening. When I step inside, I take in the scent of roasting beef. Damn, that smells good. It’s a little after six thirty, and I’m ready for dinner.
But not because of the food. I’m sure I’ll enjoy whatever delicacy my chef and housekeeper, Turner, has cooking right now, but mostly I’m eager to spend an evening with Dawson’s latest find. For a gay man, he really does have incredible taste in women.
I can’t be seen trying to pick up women I intend to pay for sex. And I don’t have time to screw with it, anyway. That’s why I have Dawson. He earns every penny of the six figures I pay him to be my personal assistant. I trust him implicitly, which is no small thing for me.
Last weekend he brought me Olivia, who nearly swallowed my cock as she worked to prove how deep she could take it. She screamed my name like a porn star when she came, and I knew her performance was an effort to get a return invitation.
But I don’t give return invitations.
I shrug off my suit jacket and lay it over the back of a chair. Everything looks to be in order as I glance around the open rooms of my home. A faint lemon scent and a shine on my hardwood floors tell me Turner was hard at work here today.
After a long day of negotiations to purchase a new technology app, I need to unwind. I made a fair offer, but the snotty college kid I’m trying to buy from is greedy. And as much as I want that app, I refuse to pay more for it, even if it means losing it to someone else.
I pull off my navy blue tie and unfasten the top button of my shirt. I’m heading to my bedroom with the tie when a knock at the front door makes me turn. After tossing the tie on my leather sofa, I walk to the wide, solid wood door and press my thumb to a keypad beside it to open it. The deadbolt slides free, and I open the door.
For a split second, I make out Dawson. But my attention is quickly and entirely focused on the woman beside him.
Fuck yes. She’s exactly what I need. Average height, with a slim frame and blond, shoulder-length hair. Her creamy complexion is tinged pink from the cold, matching her beautiful, full lips. She studies me back with huge hazel eyes, and I pick up on her discomfort.
