The Keeper - at My Sexy Saturday - #mysexysaturday #saturday7 #MSSauthors


Welcome to the 88th week of My Sexy Saturday.

This week’s theme is Sexy’s Got You, Babe and is based upon the old Sonny and Cher song, I’ve Got You, Babe. This is all about the lovers who are always there for each other.
I had a scene from The Keeper last week, but this week is a different scene.  I'm trying to get you interested in Pete and Sharon's love.  ;-)  Sharon has just told Pete about how her father left when she was a little girl, he just up and disappeared one day. Her mother followed up with a parade of boyfriends who weren't all that kind to the little girl.  Pete has lusted after her for a long time, but now he's getting to know the real woman and...
        He had every intention of making love to Sharon Timmons and making her feel cared for and safe. She'd told him how a counselor had helped her turn things around. Now, she's the beautiful, alluring woman of his dreams. Of course, those weren't her words. He had a feeling she didn't see herself as gorgeous and sexy. He was going to make it his mission in life to change that attitude. His cell phone chirped. Damn it. Unbelievable timing. "Rayne. Yeah, Route 20 and Marion Street. Okay. I'm heading there now. 10-4." He opened the car door but paused before getting out. "Auto versus truck at Twenty and Marion. I've gotta go."
"Injuries?" she asked.
"Yeah, two ambulances are there already."
"Oh, my God, it must be serious. I can go with you."
He swung one leg out the door.
"I took CPR courses at the Red Cross since I work in the medical field. I might be able to help. Do something."
He gazed back at her tear-streaked face. Even with her problems, she thought of other people and wanted to go to an accident scene with him. His already high respect for her, shot up. "It might be pretty bad."
The Keeper, an erotic contemporary M/F romance - available now at Amazon:
Sharon Timmons used the comfort of food to survive a rough childhood when her father left, and her mother responded by going from man to man. Taking control, she made a new life for herself -- new body, new job, new town. Deputy sheriff Hank wasn’t a forever kind of guy, but she was devastated when he left her for another woman. His partner rescued her. She had no clue how her life would be impacted.
Pete Rayne dated a lot of women in his day. He came from a big family, born right in the middle. No one had ever needed him before. Sharon did. He sensed her insecurities even though she was a knockout. When Hank publicly dumped her, Pete scooped her up in his arms – literally – and didn’t plan to let her go.
Sharon is a lot stronger emotionally than she gives herself credit for. Pete is determined to help her realize that and determined to prove to her he’s the one man who will love her under any circumstances and love her forever.  Sharon slowly comes to realize her intense, honest relationship with Pete is true, and he is The Keeper.
I hope you enjoyed this week's The Keeper!
