 Title: Summer Trouble
Series: A Ruby Romp Novella
Author: Ruby Rowe
Genre: Erotica Romance
Cover Design: Jo-Anna at Just write. Creations
Release Date: March 9, 2017
 

COLTON
I tried to keep my distance. I knew how much trouble Summer could cause me once she was, in her words, “legal.” She wouldn’t accept that being my best friend’s sister meant she was governed by another set of laws.
She was the forbidden fruit.
The “off-limits” trophy prize I couldn’t win.
The “don’t look and sure as hell don’t touch” female in my life.
But Summer pushed until I was backed into a corner. My hands and mouth had nowhere to go but on her. That was my story, and I was stickin’ to it.

SUMMER
I’d known Colton Graham all my life, and he was always a pest … until he wasn’t. That handsome face and masculine body he grew into became hard to look away from, and the more he matured and distanced himself from me, the more I wanted him close.
Since I’d grown up with a brother, I knew how college guys operated. Relationships were off the table, and fine by me; I only wanted two adventurous months with Colton. I knew he wouldn’t be my last, but I was hell-bent on making him my first. What was the harm in that? I could do casual … or so I thought.

Summer Trouble is a Ruby Romp Novella, meaning it contains insta-lust, along with an abundance of dirty talk and graphic sex. It can typically be enjoyed in one reading, so get ready for a fast-paced “get your panties wet” ride.



 



 



Excerpt from Summer Trouble
© Ruby Rowe 2017

Stretching out on my bed, so my toenails and fingernails can dry, I close my eyes and get lost in Luke Bryan’s Pandora channel. Without warning, my earbud is yanked out, and Jason is standing over me, wearing a smirk.

“Wake up, Jenny. Forest is waiting downstairs.”

“What? What are you talking about?”

“You know, Forest, from that movie Mom watches all the time.”

I sit up at the side of the bed. “I know what you mean, but I swear I don’t have a boyfriend. I’m not seeing anyone,” I rattle off.

“I’m not the damn relationship police. I don’t care if you’re dating someone or not. I’m just telling you Zane’s at the door.” Stepping back, he scowls. “You’re so dense I can’t even joke with you.”

Holy shit. Zane and Colton are both here.

Shooting to my feet, I scurry from my bedroom and barrel down the stairs. Once I reach the bottom, I’m about to go straight out the front door, but something tells me to turn around and face the hallway next to the stairs. Colton is right there, maybe three feet from me, and I believe his glare could lead a protest march.

Lord, he’s so sexy. His shoulder is casually leaning against the wall, and a heavy work boot is crossed over the other. He’s in a filthy white t-shirt and faded jeans that are hugging his impressive package. Skin glistens with sweat and dirt, and I want to mount this man who’s all kinds of gorgeous from manual labor.

“Tell the weakling you can’t come out and play, pack a bag for the night and then park behind my house in twenty,” he whispers aggressively. “I want to punish you.”


 

Ruby Rowe’s debut novella releases March 9, 2017; however, this is not her first book. She began writing in January of 2013 under the pen name Scarlet Wolfe, releasing contemporary and young adult. She soon tried her hand at writing erotica romance and fell in love with the genre.
The pen name Ruby Rowe came about this year when she decided it best to keep her racier books separate from her young adult romances. She also has plans to branch out and release straight erotica, however, she’s a romantic at heart, and believes it will be difficult not to include it in every story.
When not writing, Ruby reads naughty books about possessive, hot alpha males. She has an addiction to Pinterest, pinning all the sensual photos she can find. She loves bacon, coffee, and other flavors of ice cream besides vanilla. ;) She hopes her writing will allow her readers a reprieve from the real world, giving them an opportunity to live out their fantasies.

WICKED CHARMING - EXCERPT


I beeline toward the office. Mal will be there, and Beast follows, whistling once, sharp and shrill. There's a show on the center stage; a man in black leather and a long hooded cape is securing a little sub to the St. Andrews cross. His head lifts, and I can feel his gaze tracking us as Beast shadows me through the club. Then his attention goes back to the girl in front of him, dismissing us completely.
The thing is, I want to play. I'm not working, not more than I ever am here, and I want to cut loose. I want to find a girl, drag her to her knees, and ride the high of her submission.
I just can't.
I slam into the office, and Mal pauses, in the middle of typing. His eyebrow raises, the only clue I get that my entrance is disturbing him, and I grin, because I don't actually give a fuck.
He resumes typing and says, "I thought you had found him a girl, Beast."
"I did. He doesn't like her." Beast doesn't even look offended. He looks just as pissed as I feel.
"Why?"
"Why the fuck has he thrown back every girl I've brought him in the past six months, Mal? He's a picky fucker."
"I'm right here," I say dryly.
Beast flicks a disgusted look at me, and points. "You shut up. There was nothing wrong with that sub."
There wasn't. She was lovely, she was submissive, and she was clearly dying for it, if the tiny tremors of arousal just from kneeling were any indication.
She was perfect.
And she was gonna take anything I gave her without ever telling me what she wanted.
"I don't want just any sub," I say, grumpy. Mal leans back, staring, waiting for me to continue.
"I want my sub," I say, almost defiant, daring the two of them to say something, and for a moment, neither do, because there's nothing to saynot to that.

I'm Samul Charming. I'm the heir to a pharmaceutical empire, the only son in a family of sisters, and my mama's favorite. I've played my part of partyboy bachelor for years, quite happily. I like women, and I like fucking a lot of them. I like playing with a new sub, like seeing what I can do to make her break.
