Diamond earrings...

Book 1 in the Breathless Trilogy



Gabe, Jace, and Ash: three of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the country. They’re accustomed to getting anything they want. Anything at all.
For Gabe, it’s making one particular fantasy come true with a woman who was forbidden fruit. Now she’s ripe for the picking…
When Gabe Hamilton saw Mia Crestwell walk into the ballroom for his hotel’s grand opening, he knew he was going to hell for what he had planned. After all, Mia is his best friend’s little sister. Except she’s not so little anymore. And Gabe has waited a long time to act on his desires.
Gabe has starred in Mia’s fantasies more than once, ever since she was a teenager with a huge crush on her brother’s best friend. So what if Gabe’s fourteen years older? Mia knows he’s way out of her league, but her attraction has only grown stronger with time. She’s an adult now, and there’s no reason not to act on her most secret desires.
As Gabe pulls her into his provocative world, she realizes there’s a lot she doesn’t know about him or how exacting his demands can be. Their relationship is intense and obsessive, but as they cross the line from secret sexual odyssey to something deeper, their affair runs the risk of being exposed—and vulnerable to a betrayal far more intimate than either expected.

  4. The crazy thing that I have done would be having a photo shoot done with 2 of my close friends and handing them to my boyfriend a gift. Nothing nude just seductive...

  5. Valentine's Day for me has always been subdued and no gifts. Seems to be a day I always end up having surgery or tests done! But Last year, my husband surprised me with one of those life-size teddy bears. Where the heck am I supposed to put that after the fact! LOL

  6. I was single but my best guy friend wanted to do something special for the day. I gave up coffee and chocolate for Lent (catholic) one year several years ago. He showed up to work that morning with my favorite cup of coffee and later that afternoon two dozen chocolate roses showed up at my desk. He forgot I couldn't drink the coffee or eat the chocolate. The idea was sweet but ugh worst ever because I couldn't have either. So that day all the girls at work got chocolate roses from my best friend.

  11. I was fifteen. My boyfriend gave me an old cassette tape (yes, cassette) of some band I didn't like and can't even remember now, with a pair of crazy earrings that I think he stole from his sister or mother, and a sample perfume -which made total sense because I NEVER wore perfume. Maybe he was trying to hint that he thought I smelled. Ha!

  14. Honestly never given or received anything extravagant. My bf and I agree to keep it simple, we just enjoy time together

  15. Well not getting anything would be one and then getting yelled at that I was upset about it. But, that was before my hubby. So, we already know that, that guy wasn't worth it.

  16. One year a guy spent around $80 for an arrangement of roses for me, but I already had a boyfriend! Poor guy I felt awful he spent so much :(

    Caught my boyfriend trying to outspend the guy to show me he loved me more, and I told him, "No, dummy! I'm with you because I love you, not for how much you spend on me." Been with him for 15 years and we have a great son! :)

  22. My Valentine's Day is generally made up of work as I do not and never has had a man on Valentine's Day. Here's to someday breaking that streak! Don't really have any gifts to speak of.

    Happy Valentine's Day!
