K is for Kentucky 98 Proof (and KC)

2014 A to Z Blogging Challenge
A Rural Life
Day 11

K is for Kentucky 98 Proof
Welcome to Between the Keys! Today’s blog is doing double duty. I’m participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge which happens in April, and I'm also taking part in the Seductive Studs & Sirens Blog Hop. Luckily, I have a book with a K title so it’s going to work out for me today. Next Saturday is another story. The A to Z will be on Q and that’s going to be problematic for both Seductive Studs & Sirens and My Sexy Saturday if the latter is back from hiatus. We’ll have to wait and see how creative I can be - or not.

For those of you unfamiliar with the A to Z Challenge, it’s twenty six blogs in twenty six days working the alphabet from A to Z. You post every day in April except for Sundays unless April 1 falls on a Sunday that year. It IS a challenge. Check out the survivor badges along the left side of the blog. They were EARNED, not just handed out.

For those of you unfamiliar with Seductive Studs & Sirens, every Saturday a group of writers post a short excerpt from a story for your enjoyment. The list of participants is below. It’s a great way to connect with other authors and find some great stories.

That’s it in a nutshell, so here is a short excerpt from Kentucky 98 Proof. Bragging a bit, this book was the #1 bestseller at Amber Allure in its debut month of August 2013 and a certified All Romance eBook bestseller in September 2013. Needless to say, I was thrilled!

Vic rolled his eyes and trudged into the bathroom. Boone followed, equally unwilling but probably for different reasons. He didn’t want to be in the small space with Vic. Their hips and shoulders would rub. He’d have to breathe in Vic’s scent. And worst of all he’d have to touch Vic and risk making a fool of himself. He took a deep breath and angled Vic’s chin up to the light and brushed the dark, damp hair off the man’s forehead.
He whistled softly as he gently ran his fingertips over the solid bump. “That’s going to be one fancy bruise.”

“I guess I’ll have to get a hat.”

Boone snorted as he tipped Vic’s chin to another angle. “Yeah. Call yourself Kentucky Jones. The skin doesn’t appear to be broken. Look me in the eye.”


Boone tapped Vic’s chin and released him. “You’re pupils aren’t dilated. Got any double vision?”

Vic took a deep breath and turned to face him. His hands went to Boone’s hips. “I’ve got visions, but they’re not double unless you want to count the only men in them are you and me.”
