SCARLETT
Sexy Shifter Fairytale Romance, Book 4
BY JESSICA ASPEN

Blurb

Trapped in an isolated cabin with trouble on the way, how is Scarlett to know that the man who could be her prince, is actually a bear shifter in disguise.

Scarlett Rose screwed up—she used show and tell to prove to her sister that her boyfriend was a jerk. A year later and Silver is still pissed, but Scarlett is given a gift from the grave—their grandfather has left a will that forces the two of them to live together in his cabin deep in the heart of the Colorado Rockies. Now Scarlett has the chance to make her sister see that she’ll do anything—even change her wild ways for good—all for the chance to earn Silver’s forgiveness.

But the Rose girls don’t know that the mountain they grew up visiting every summer has been the home to bear shifters for years—and now the bears want the land back. All the land.

Rose sisters…or no Rose sisters.

Cam Beresford has spent his life being the town drunk’s son. Even now, when he and his brothers are finally successful game designers, the town’s old guard still sees them as unpredictable wild cards. But when the last non-shifter owner on Beresford Mountain dies, Cam knows this is his chance to buy back the property and show the town that the Beresford boys are not their father’s sons.

But, Scarlett isn’t as anxious to sell the property as Cam thought a city girl would be. And with someone on the mountain leaving nasty presents for the Rose girls, Cam’s inner bear is roused to protect, even if Scarlett is merely human.

With the danger growing increasingly higher and Silver threatening to leave, Scarlett’s time is running out. And when Cam tumbles over the edge of desire into the mating dance, will he be able to pull back? Or will his bear take over and take Scarlett to the edge?

Lions and wolves and bears, oh my.

Excerpt

Cam had been unable to wait, pacing around his office at the house on the mountain instead of getting his calls done. Checking the road every time he heard a car to see if the flash of motion was the navy blue of Scarlett’s rental car. He was supposed to be lining up artists to draw samples of scenery for the new game so Abe wouldn’t have to do all the grunt work, and instead he’d spent the hours between noon and three thinking of sexy Scarlett Rose in her tight business skirt and flirty low-cut blouse.

When he’d seen her car he’d barely counted to ten before jumping into the truck and driving up the road to the old Rose cabin, his palms damp with anticipation. Now here she was, all grown up and looking good enough to eat. He caught her scent floating across the space between them, and his head jerked up. If he’d been in bear form he would have opened his mouth and tasted her in the back of his throat, swallowing down the spicy flavor of cherry and cloves.

It had him thinking of taking her to the meadow down the hill where they used to run as children, and laying her down on a plaid blanket. Seeing if her cherry red lips tasted as soft and sweet as they looked. Unbuttoning that blouse and shimmying that skirt down to see if underneath she was as smooth as the curve of fabric on her hips.

It had him hard as a rock and nearly forgetting exactly why he’d wanted to take her to dinner in the first place.

He straightened off of his truck and closed the space between them, keeping his eyes locked on hers. “I said I’d drop by, how’s it going?”

“I’ve had better days, but it’s nice to see a friendly face.” Drawing near enough to her he caught the heat on her skin that flared in response.

He wished he could reach down and adjust the sudden full hard-on filling his jeans. He coughed, covering up a surprising flash of nerves and forced himself to play it cool. “Sounds like your plans for tonight might have fallen through. Would you reconsider heading to town with me and having dinner?”

“I don’t know.” She glanced down the road where the dust from her sister’s peel-out had settled. “I really need to talk to Silver.”

He reached out and stroked the soft skin on the top of her hand, trying to get her attention back on him. “Don’t you think you’d be better off giving her a few hours to cool down?”

She left off looking for her sister and turned back to him. Suddenly her bright blue eyes were inches away and he became aware of everything—the creak of the tall pines moving with the breeze, the late afternoon sun setting off deep highlights in her hair, the draw of her eyes pulling him in with promises of buried heat.

He instinctively moved to reach for her, to take her into his arms and kiss her full lips. But as he moved instead of stepping into his arms, she backed up, her lashes sweeping down to hide what he was sure was a flash of interest.

He dropped his hands. Dinner had just become more than a quest for the land. It had become a quest for discovering more about this flash of sexual attraction sizzling in the air between them. And for discovering more about Scarlett.

    I can honestly say that RED is not your average fairytale just based off the first five pages I have gotten the chance to read. However, it sounds like one heck of an adventure and I’m all in on that! Thank you Jessica I can’t wait to see where Red takes me and pick up the rest of the series.
