Jake and Ivy
(The Brothers Agee - Jake)
by Jane Leopold Quinn
Ivy Westlake, thought to be a demure young lady, comes alive at her friend’s hacienda in Mexico when she discovers the Flamenco. Her wild side is unleashed in the sensuality of music and dancing. She will not allow her father to force her into a marriage of convenience back East, so she runs away with the dance troupe.
Jake Agee, cowboy, horse trader, loner, has carefully built a life with no commitments. That life explodes in his face when Ivy dances. He doesn’t know she’s run away until he spots her performing in a small California town. He battles his desire to have this woman against his well-honed sense of independence.
Jake and Ivy perform their own style of pas de deux throughout southern California until their passions ignite in a desert cave in the middle of a thunder storm. Jake fights his growing love as Ivy fights her craving for their erotic pursuits. Jake’s long lost brother suddenly and mysteriously surfaces. Will this appearance tear Jake and Ivy apart? Will it destroy their love?

Wooing the Librarian
a Historical Western Romance
by Jane Leopold Quinn
After a spectacularly failed romance left her devastated, all Isis Garrett wants is to start her library in this California town. The last thing she wants is another man, not even the handsome preacher who offers his church for her books.
Pres MacKay is starting a new life as a preacher. He can’t hide his attraction to the sweetly rounded new librarian even as she pushes him away. Can he discover the way into her closed heart and prove to her he’s one of the good guys?
Pres isn’t about to give up on Isis, though. The question is can she forget the pain of the past and see a future with him?

R-RATED EXCERPT FOR JAKE AND IVY -- Jake and Ivy have danced their own pas de deux throughout southern California, fighting their attraction, trying to keep their independence. Emotions are running high and a coming storm brings them together for the first time…
God, she's beautiful. A dark cloud of wavy hair surrounded her head, his fingers tingling to sift though the strands. A sharp crack of thunder interrupted his thoughts. He swiveled his head at the sound of a frightened whinny and assured himself his horse was all right. Turning back, he saw her blink and lick her lips. On edge himself, he never dropped his gaze but kept his hands at his sides. It was the last time he was aware of anything outside of the cave, outside the two of them.
She began unbuttoning her shirt. He watched avidly, controlling his greedy desire. Flicking a glance to her eyes, he found her staring at him, both uncertainty and a growing arousal in hers.
"Ivy sweetheart, don't be afraid," he murmured.
"I'm not," she responded, the hitch in her breathing belying her claim.
He didn't move, just watched her strip for him. When her blouse dropped to the ground, he wanted to demand more but held his tongue. Just let things play out. The ruffled chemise clung even more closely to her breasts, his balls tightening at the sight of her dark nipples through the thin white cloth.
She lowered one strap, then the other in unwitting sensuality and pushed the delicate material to her waist.
He panted, his mouth open and dry. Jesus. Breasts high and firm with puckered nipples fueled his unholiest desire to take them in his mouth.
AND A PG EXCERPT FOR WOOING THE LIBRARIAN -- Isis roams to a bench in the park to find some privacy from Pres and read a book - something librarians love to do almost more than anything else. She's joined by another young woman, someone who needs a friend and, of course, a book…
Each in her own thoughts, they sat without speaking for a minute. Finally, Isis asked, "You'd like to borrow a book?"
"Yes, if you'll lend to me."
"Of course, I will. The books are for anyone to read. What kind of stories do you like?"
Opal laughed outright then. "Believe it or not, I like to read romance stories. You wouldn't think I would, but they're pleasant enough to pass the daytime with."
Isis smiled and held up the book in her lap. "Have you ever read anything by Fanny Burney?"
"No, I've never heard of her."
"She was a British author from the last century and wrote about English society at that time."
"I like reading about the past. It kind of takes me away from my present life." She gave a little self-deprecating chuckle and blushed under the face paint.
"Here then, take this." Isis offered the book to Opal.
"But you're reading it. I don't want to take it from you."
"Please. I've read it before. Tell me later if you liked it. I have more by the same author."
"How will I return it to you?"
"Just come into the library any time you'd like. I'll be there."
"Someone might see me."
"And what's wrong with that?"
Opal scowled. "Some people might think me unfit."
Isis pressed her lips together. "Well, I don't, and it's my library. So there!"
Opal chuckled and said, "You're sweet. I hope you don't get any nasty remarks."
"I can handle anyone, don't you worry. Books are for everyone to enjoy. You'll come back and talk to me, won't you? We'll talk about the story." Isis smiled encouragingly.
Opal clutched the book as if it were precious and beamed back. "I will, and I'll take very good care of this."
Sensual fantasies were locked in my mind for years until a friend said, "Why don't you write them down?" Why not, indeed? One spiral notebook, a pen and the unleashing of my imagination later, and here I am with more than a dozen books published. The craft of writing erotic romance has become my passion and my niche in life. I love every part of the creative process — developing characters, designing the plot, even drawing the layout of physical spaces from my stories. My careers have been varied — third grade school teacher, bookkeeper, secretary — none of which gave me a bit of inspiration. But now I'm lucky enough to write romance full time — the best job in the universe!
