Sweet Sexy Sadie by Christine Young
Publisher: Rogue Phoenix Press (August 16, 2013) 
Genre: Paranormal Romance

From the first time Sadie’s eyes met those of Brody McKenna in the hot Sierra Madre Mountains, theirs was a potent attraction—not gentle, slow, and easy, but hot, hard, and all-consuming. The daughter of a dysfunctional family, Sadie had dreams no man could wrench from her with hot sex and an all-consuming passion. She’d challenge this alpha male with all the strength she possessed. But her red hair, fiery temperament, and indomitable spirit obsessed Brody...and he knew he had to find a way to show her he was more than he appeared and convince her to make a life with him.

Sweet Sexy Sadie by Christine Young
Excerpt



"I'm on a ledge—my feet." Her heart pounded. Don't look down. Don't look down. Don't...

"Hang on. Whatever you do, don't look down. I've shifted back. Grab me." He reached for her.

"I'm slipping—Brody!" Her toes pointed, touching the ledge, she tightened her fingers around the rocks. Then she looked up and saw Brody stretching his arms toward her. God, but she didn't want to let go of anything. Heart racing, blood pounding through her veins she saw death fly past.

Somewhere an owl hooted. A full moon hung low on the horizon and a wolf let out an eerie wail.

"Oh my, God." She looked down, waves of nausea zipped through her as her eyes blurred and the world revolved around her

Moments passed like hours as she tried to gain control of her emotions. Then as if they were detached from his body, his fingers curled around one of Sadie's wrists. With a muttered curse, he hauled her from her precarious spot.

"I've got you." Brody pulled her close, his face buried in her hair.

She was in his arms, sobbing and shaking. She felt his heart thundering against her ribs, but it wasn't as loud as hers. She needed to hang on to him forever. He was her rock, an unshakable strength.

"Brody, dear God, I've never been so terrified." Her arms wrapped so tightly around him brought her some measure of relief.

"I'm so sorry," he said, running his fingers through her hair. "I'm so sorry. But it's good now. You're safe. It's all good. I shouldn't have frightened you so. It was too much too soon."

"Hold me until I stop shaking, please." Sadie needed his warmth, wanted to feel alive. His naked body against her brought a sense of belonging. She had almost fallen to her death. She had wanted to know just how high Infinity Cliff reached into the sky, but not by falling to her death.

"I'll never stop holding you, protecting you." He drew her closer, tighter, running his hands up and down her back as if he needed to make sure she was still alive.

Sadie reciprocated, pulling Brody nearer, knowing he held the only power to stop her fear and her trembling. Needing to renew life was all she thought. Inside her, complete her, and make her whole again overpowered rational thought. She wanted Brody to make love to her, here, on top of the cliff that had nearly been her undoing.


"Brody, I want you—need you... Now."


"Are you sure?"
