A billionaire heiress walks into a bar…

When Fiona Merrill finds herself without a date on New Year’s Eve, the frustrated New York socialite takes matters into her own hands. After way too many glasses of champagne, she propositions the familiar bartender with an offer he can’t refuse. But the handsome, Brooklyn-born drink-slinger turns out to be a lot more than she bargained for.

Chris Ballard lives with his mother, biding his time until he can save enough money to completely renovate his crumbling farmhouse in upstate New York. An opportunity for some quick cash is a no-brainer, and with the amount of money Fiona offers him, he is eager to agree to her scheme.

In a world of have and have nots, posing as the next Manhattan power couple is the easy part. Things become challenging when Chris dares Fiona to go deeper than what her pampered life style offers. Is it possible for the heiress to change her ways and discover a bigger purpose? Or will the poor little rich girl continue her selfish ways with only her money to keep her warm?

This is a twist on the male billionaire needing a date/fiancé. Fiona just wants a boyfriend for a while so she’s not alone at events and outings with her coupled up friends.

This New Year’s Eve Fiona agreed to go out with her friends Petra and Frank, a very happy couple expecting their first child. Suddenly not wanting to be there bringing down the excitement of the evening, she leaves, but gets waylaid at the bar in the lobby area of the hotel.

This is a favorite scene.

With a definitive pop, Chris Ballard opened a brand new bottle of expensive champagne and filled a crystal flute to the rim. The bar hummed with excitement excitement as the countdown on the television hit the five-minute mark. 

“Yo, Chris! Leave that open. I got a table of four needing a round for when the ball drops,” his co-worker, Jimmy requested from across the bar, his New York accent distinct. 

“You got it,” Chris replied, balancing the singular full glass on a silver tray. He was anxious to get back to the pretty blonde. He usually worked at the Cipriani Club three nights a week and was only helping out at the ritzy hotel last minute for the holiday overtime. The high-class bartending world was small and unique in the city that never sleeps, many drink-slingers and mixologists moonlighting at more than one establishment, especially during the numerous Christmas and New Year’s celebrations. Chris was happy to help, especially knowing that the New Year ushered in some much-needed time off. He was anxious to get out of town, and back to the crumbling farmhouse he was refurbishing in Cold Creek, a few hours outside the city. He’d been working on this house project for the better part of a year and was looking forward to some time away from the hustle and bustlebustle of the concrete jungle. He’d earned it.   

“Here you are.” Placing a cocktail napkin with the hotel’s signature logo on the small table in front of the woman’s chair, he effortlessly set the glass down without spilling a drop. Tucking the tray under his arm, he waited for a response.

The woman hesitated before she met his gaze with hooded eyes. “Thank you.”

“You’re welcome,” he energetically replied, tipping his head forward in a slight bow. Biting his lower lip, he waited for a beat before he spoke again. “By the way, my name is Chris.”

He thrust his hand out, humored when she politely kept her hands neatly folded in her lap, her intense blue eyes matching the heat of the flickering gas flames in the fireplace. Retracting his hand for a millisecond, he shoved it out again when she moved forward, anticipating a polite handshake. Instead, he was taken aback when she reached for the drink in front of her and took a lingering sip. She was something else.

Scrubbing his hand down his chin, he couldn’t help but chuckle.

“Do you find me funny?” she asked, looking up at him with an arched eyebrow, her perfectly made-up lips dewy from the booze. 

“No. I find this situation funny. Usually, when someone introduces themselves, the other person reciprocates. You seem to want to ignore me.”

Multiple voices came from the bar area, counting down from twenty seconds, the area around the television becoming louder with each number. Chris glanced over his shoulder and smiled. When he turned back, he was startled that the woman had stood up in her sky-high heels, making her appear taller. Being in close proximity to her face, he noticed her glossed lips gleam in the soft light, and a trace of vanilla and citrus wafted under his nose, causing his breath to hitch.

“My name is Fiona,” she offered with a tinge of a smile. “Thank you for the champagne.”

Before he could reply, “you’re welcome,” the crowd shouted, “three, two, one… Happy New Year!” Their eyes locked, and he watched her cheeks flush with a pinkish hue. 

“Happy New Year, Fiona,” his voice rumbled as he smiled at her. 

“Happy New Year, Chris,” she replied with a flirty gaze looking at him through her lashes. 

The thrum of the happy intoxicated crowd buzzed around them, as did a jolt of electricity when Chris boldly moved forward and gave Fiona a peck on the cheek. It was standard New Year’s protocol, wasn’t it? Her flawless, alabaster skin felt like satin to his lips, and he had the sudden urge to bury his nose in her blonde hair. 

When he pulled back, he noticed her eyes turned darker as she heaved a deep breath. Before he could utter another word, she cupped his chin and pulled his face forward, fearlessly pressing her lips to his in a tentative kiss. When she snuck her luscious tongue into the seam of his mouth, he somehow managed to set the tray down without dropping it. Bringing his hands up to hold her cheeks, he opened his mouth to her, thankful for the New Year’s kiss. The bar patrons and employees seemed oblivious to what was happening between them as her warm, sweet tongue moved with a hint of desperation as the kiss deepened. When her hands trailed down to his buttocks and squeezed, Chris’s eyebrows shot up, and he pulled back with a gasp, wiping his lower lip with the back of his hand.

“Whoa! Careful, Princess. I’m on the clock.”

Her beautiful bosom rose and fell from behind her daring cleavage in her expensive gown. With his feet firmly planted, Chris watched as she ran her red manicured nails through her hair and pushed back a blonde lock from her forehead. Touching her lips, she jutted her chin out and spoke with authority usually reserved for those in power, even in her out of breath state. “What time do you get off?”

A New Release from K.G. Fletcher – Love Song


 

Love Song
By
KG Fletcher

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

Her heart searched for a melody. Will the love song she finally hears be loud enough to drown out the screaming memories of her past?

Back-up singer Casey lived the old anthem, “work hard, play harder.” When she meets handsome sub-drummer, Sam Wildner on a gig, their attraction is immediate. The two musicians forge ahead in a dizzy rhythm of passion and music, both impressed by each other’s harmonious abilities. When Sam learns of Casey’s family trauma involving her sister’s abusive ex-boyfriend, he commits to being there for her and her young niece who is caught in the middle.

The melody of their love song rings loudly in Casey’s ears as she and Sam navigate the precarious fast lane of jealousy, murder and rock ‘n roll.

KindleLogo

Right from the start I am going to issue a warning, this book contains scenes that could be an emotional trigger for those who have dealt with abuse. The scenes are harsh, well written and extremely powerful.

As far as I can see Casey has her life pretty well in order. That is until she meets Sam. For some reason she reverts to previous behaviors and instead of them repelling him, it drives him closer.

An unexpected gig in New York City, takes them on a magical, musical journey. This is a favorite scene.

They walked along a crowded, noisy sidewalk hand in hand. She had no idea where they were headed, anxious to get there so she could finally talk to him. Several blocks later they crossed a busy intersection into an area laden with trees in full, fall splendor.

“Ahh, Central Park.” Casey said.

Sam nodded and pulled her into his side. He slowed their pace under the fall branches and time seemed to wind down once they entered the park. It was bustling with people, but in a more laid back way. They passed several street musicians and Sam always stopped to encourage them with polite applause or a dollar tip in their music case. They paused at an open park bench and sat down. He kissed her hand and turned his body to look at her.

“Are you okay?” he asked.

She smiled. “Yes, of course. Why would you ask that?”

“I don’t know. I missed you this morning. And now, you seem… distant.” He tilted his head with a look of concern before he looked at the ground. “I crossed that line we talked about…”

“You sure did.”

He looked up at her, quickly, as if trying to figure out what she meant. Casey grabbed his cheeks and pulled him in for a long, lingering kiss. When she finished, she looked intently into his eyes. “You’re amazing and I’m speechless about what happened last night. It was probably the best night of my life.”

Sam’s facial expression turned from apprehension to joy in an instant. He leaned in and kissed her lightly on the lips again and rubbed the tops of her thighs with his large hands. “So, maybe I can come to your room tonight?”

“Absolutely.”

His smile rivaled the sun as he grabbed her hand to stand. “Come on. I still have something to show you.” They continued through the gorgeous park, stopping once to curiously watch a young girl play the violin while she hula-hooped. They finally came to an area that had been designated a “quiet zone.” Sam turned to her before they entered and spoke softly. “Strawberry Fields. I’ve always wanted to see this memorial to the Beatle’s legend, John Lennon.”

“Me too.” She nodded excitedly. In all the years she had been coming to New York, she had never been to the famous memorial. They walked hand in hand on a winding, wooded trail flanked by shrubs and mature trees—an unexpected oasis in a city of eight and a half million people. They came to a clearing where a circular, mosaic pathway of inlaid stones had been created. There was a single word in the center of the mosaic, the title of Lennon’s famous song, “Imagine”. Colorful flowers and flickering candles in glasses covered the stones, left behind by Lennon fans. They stood there, lost in their own thoughts about music, love and a life lost tragically too soon. Sam put his arm across her shoulders and held her tightly as they listened to a lone guitar player strumming the chorus of the famous song for which the mosaic was dedicated. It was a beautiful, contemplative place. She felt at peace. She felt…love.

A slight breeze picked up, causing a few colorful leaves to rustle and fall onto the sidewalk. She watched as a large, orange maple leaf danced across the inlaid stones, an homage to the eccentric music legend. Sam brushed her hair out of her face, his fingers lingering on her cheek. She brought her hand up and laced her fingers with his, gazing at him. They were writing their own song. The melody was coming into form with each minute they spent together.

The universe had shifted in the past twenty-four hours. A line had definitely been crossed… and there was no turning back.
KG Fletcher. Love Song (Kindle Locations 838-866). Kindle Edition.

Now all is not a bed of roses for Casey, she lives with her sister Laura and niece Gwyneth (GG). She set this up for their safety, when Laura had to get a restraining order against GG’s abusive father. When he shows up in the picture things get rough.

Expecting Sam to distance himself he instead draws closer and the love and romance builds.

A tale of suspense, pain and a love that can endure.

He left the flat tire on the pavement and grabbed the spare out of the back, bouncing it to the empty wheel well. He got it on in no time and she held the rim full of nuts for him as he carefully tightened each one back on the tire, flexing his upper body magnificently.

“That didn’t take long now, did it?” He grinned at her again, pushing back the wave on his forehead smearing more black residue on his handsome face. He slowly cranked the jack back down to where the tire was sitting perfectly on the pavement.

“Gosh, that’s a lot of work. I appreciate you coming back and doing this for me. I probably would have had to call Triple-A.” She felt like a wet mop standing on the hot asphalt, sweating profusely watching him hoist the flat tire into the back of the van and shutting the hatch.

“It’s the least I could do,” he said, grabbing his t-shirt off the top of the car. He used his shirt to wipe the sweat from his face, neck, chest, and dirty hands. The shirt was ruined.

“Oh, wow. You just ruined your shirt. Do you have to be anywhere?” she asked with concern. Her eyes were about to pop out of her head watching him.

He ran his hands through his damp hair again, a noticeable habit she was starting to enjoy.

“Nah… I was just heading home by way of Lenox Mall. I can stop by there another day.” He shook his head with disbelief and laughed. “It sure is freakin’ hot out here!” He grinned, rubbing the soiled t-shirt on the back of his neck. “I want to pay you for a new tire, okay?”

She shook her head even though she wasn’t sure how she’d pay for a new one. “No, that’s all right. Thanks though.”

“Okay, but you look hot. Would you like to go for a swim or something?”

Josie held her breath. Did he just ask her to go for a swim? She suddenly felt very dizzy and put her hand on the van to steady herself.
