Excerpt Release: Burn For You by Marquita Valentine

Burn For You (Boys of the South #5)
by Marquita Valentine.
Audience/Genre: New Adult,Contemporary Romance .
Publication: April 21st 2014.
Beau Montgomery is not the typical single dad for three reasons:

1. He’s rich and famous.
2. He needs a nanny, like yesterday.
3. He has no idea if eight month old, Mia, is actually his daughter.

Only, number three doesn’t matter to him at all, because he’s determined to give up everything to be a standup dad, including racing, partying, and his very favorite vice, women. Until that is, he’s invited to race at Monaco—a dream he’s always had. Now, all those things he’d sworn to give up are at his fingertips, including the very inconveniently hot nanny, Landry Basnight, who’s travelling with him.

Landry Basnight is the typical college graduate for three reasons:

1. She’s broke and in debt up to her eyeballs.
2. She needs a job, like yesterday.
3. Nothing exciting ever happens in her life.

Only, number three is about to change, because she’s been hired by Beau Montgomery, son of NASCAR Racing Royalty. Landry’s parents are big fans of the Montgomerys, while she couldn’t care less—all she wants to do is make a dent in her student loan bill. However, that doesn’t stop her from falling in love with her little charge, nor does it make it easier to resist Beau’s charms. In fact , she doesn’t resist at all.

Lines are crossed and then forgotten as Beau and Landry grow closer, but when Beau’s ex-girlfriend, the woman he’s loved since high school, and Mia’s mother shows up, everything starts to fall apart for the new couple.

Will their love weather the storm, or will Beau abandon Landry for the family he’s always wanted?

Excerpt, Part Two
“What’s your name?” he asks, in a slow drawl that makes me think of hot summer nights and skinny dipping.

Since we don’t have to give out our real names, I give him my fake one. “Lisa.”

He grunts, one corner of his luscious mouth pulling up. Yes, I said it. Luscious. A word normally reserved for a woman, but those lips, all full and plump, are exactly that.

“You don’t look like a Lisa,” he says, his head tilting to one side.

“Well, you look like you’re thirsty. Would you like tonight’s special?” I ask, trying to distract him. I bend at the waist a little. Boobs always distract the straight ones. Sometimes the gay ones, too. For some reason, every gay man I know loves boobs.

“How long have you worked here?”

The question throws me off guard. Shouldn’t he be hitting on me right now? “Long enough.”

“Are you a student?”

“Until I graduate.” The less information I give the better. I don’t need some psycho rich guy stalking me, like one had Justine. It had taken a restraining order and then jail time to keep that asshole from messing with her ever again. “You?”

He shakes his head. “College is not for me.”

For a moment I let my guard down and study him objectively. He can’t be older than twenty-five or twenty six. “How old are you?”
