Summary

Freedom has always been a priority for Kelsey “Chicklet” Galloway. From choosing bartending over a ‘real’ career, to avoiding monogamy like the plague, she’s always paved her own way, living her life in a way that makes her happy. As a Domme she is content to give a lucky sub—or two—a night to remember, but she’s never met anyone who made her consider sharing her carefree world. 
Until she meets a woman who desperately needs a little taste of it. 
Officer Laura Tallant has her whole life in order, is looking at a promotion on the police force in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and finally has some time off for a much needed vacation. When her plan to find some release with her former Master falls through, she’s left searching for an alternative. And finds one that fulfills more than her desire to escape reality for a brief, blissful moment. 
Chicklet makes her feel more alive than anyone she’s ever known, but nothing about her follows the rules of what Laura is supposed to want. The last time Laura put her heart on the line, she was left broken and alone. A chance at love might rip open old scars. Or give her a safe place to finally let them heal. 
Author’s note: This is the story of how Chicklet and Laura’s relationship began, which takes place before Game Misconduct (The Dartmouth Cobras #1). There are scenes involving characters from the other books, but it can still be read as a standalone. The hockey is light in this book, but I still consider it a Cobra novella because Chicklet’s earned her place as an honorary member over the years. Any woman who can handle the trouble triplets deserves that at very least! lol

    Special offer inside this Box Set to celebrate the 30th release in the Cattle Valley series    'Out of the Shadow'  When Shepard Black left the rodeo circuit, he thought his days of lusting after young cowboys were over. Now owner of the Backbreaker Ranch, Shep raises mean spirited bulls like the ones that used to toss him around the arena. It's a challenge, but he never imagined his best friend's son, Jeremy, would prove to be his toughest one yet. Watching Jeremy's long legs wrap around a bucking bull gives Shep too many ideas for comfort. Even worse, Jeremy seems to know exactly the affect he's having on his boss and teacher.  When Jeremy asks Shep to help him train for the upcoming Cattle Valley Rodeo Days, he has two goals in mind. To spend time with the man he's lusted after since he was a teenager and to beat his father. He's been through hell as the son of the reigning National Champion, and he wants his dad to have a taste of his own medicine. He might just get a taste of what he's longed for all this time, too.  'Bad Boy Cowboy'  When Logan Miller pulls up to the EZ Does-It ranch atop a gleaming black Harley, bearing tattoos and killer green eyes, Jax Brolin knows he's in trouble. How can this be the same skinny kid who used to play with his baby brother? Still recovering from a secret affair gone bad, Jax knows his heart can't take another beating. Distancing himself is his only weapon, and he uses it well.  Until Logan reunited with his best friend's big brother, he'd thought the best thing to have between his legs was a motorcycle, followed closely by a horse. Now, at the age of twenty-six, Logan wants the man he's fantasised about since puberty.  The town may classify Logan as a bad boy, but all he wants is to be is a good man for Jax and he'll do anything to get the man's attention.  'The Sound of White'  Finally healed after a beating that almost took his life, the last thing Richard Johnson needs is to be attracted to Chad Neal. He's got a bar to open and a heart to mend.  Despite his smaller stature, Tall Pines Lodge Manager, Chad Neal, needs to be in charge, both in the bedroom and out. So why is he attracted to a six-foot-three man who looks like he could rip the limbs from Chad's body?  Electrician, Collin Zeffer, longs for the kind of relationship he sees his friends have, but who would want someone as boring as him? When he meets the reclusive Abe Cross, Collin decides maybe there is someone made especially for him.  Hiding his face from the world, Abe Cross is content to live out his life alone. His cabin in the woods above Cattle Valley seems like the place to do it. The last thing he needs is a sexy as sin electrician showing up to remind him of what he can never have, but when an unexpected blizzard blankets Cattle Valley and the mountains above it, his life, and the lives of the three other men, will change forever.  'Gone Surfin' '  Since the age of six, Kai Hachiya's entire life has been centred on surfing. Now, at the age of twenty-six, he's begun to drop in the rankings. Memories of a small-town mayor have him completely off pace, and only one thing can fix it, finding that man.  Winters in Cattle Valley are torture for Mayor Quade Maddison. Standing around singing Christmas Carols with friends only serves to remind him how completely alone he really is. The only thing that gets him through the cold, lonely months is his annual vacation to Hawaii.  When a gorgeous professional surfer washes up at the grand opening of the Tall Pines Lodge, Quade knows his Christmas prayer has been answered.  'The Last Bouquet'  Tyler Manning hates seeing Hearn Sutherland mourn over a jerk like Mitch Lanham. Every week Hearn comes into Tyler's shop to pick up fresh flowers for his lover's grave, and every minute spent with the good-looking man makes Tyler love him more.  Since Mitch's death, Hearn has become withdrawn and sullen. For months before Mitch's accident, Hearn tried to fight the attraction he felt for his best friend, Tyler. Now nine months later, he learns the truth about his long-term partner, one that will change Hearn's life forever.  When Tyler convinces Hearn to run for mayor against Cattle Valley's own favourite son, Nate Gills, Hearn knows he's in for a bumpy ride. Nate has his own bumps in the road to overcome. With the threat of a long-time secret being exposed, Nate must finally come to terms with his past. Opening himself to criticism from his partners, Ryan and Rio, isn't going to be easy, but Nate knows the time has come to confess his past sins.

    Stacy James survived a life-shattering accusation to become a successful businessman with a lot to offer a partner. He's finally put his ghosts to rest, and is ready for someone in his life if the right man comes along. 
    Young and wild, ace mechanic Levi Wright builds engines made for speed. When Levi's volatile temper lands him nose-to-nose with trouble, Stacy ignores his own rules and steps in to save Levi from making a big mistake. But Stacy can't ignore Levi's smoldering sexuality as the younger man then pursues him. 
    And Levi has made it clear he's out to get his man. 
    *   *   *    
    My young companion held the door for me as we entered the pub, stepping into a quiet, smoke-filled room. The pool table just inside the door was free. 
    “Rack ’em, Levi. Will a draft be okay?” 
    He nodded as he deftly arranged the balls for the first strike. I paid for the beers and selected a cue. My own stick lay tucked in its case in the trunk of the Corvette, but I didn’t want to appear showoff-ish to Levi. The car already pushed that envelope far enough. Levi tossed a coin in the air. 
    “Call it!” 
    “Heads.” The quarter landed heads up. I lined up for the break and popped it. As luck would have it, the twelve and the fifteen balls dropped into the pockets. Levi glanced slyly at me from under his lashes. 
    “That means you have to get all the striped balls in the pockets before you can hit the little black ball in, Stacy James.” 
    I narrowed my eyes at him and ran the highballs. 
    “Eight in the side.” I tapped the hole I would shoot for with the cue, then drove the little black ball home. “Rack ’em, again, if you dare,” I challenged him. 
    Levi set up the table again while I sipped my beer. Something simmered just under the surface of his flushed skin. I moved to break and his hand covered mine. Our gazes locked for several seconds. He squeezed my fingers, and I released the cue. 
    “My turn, old man.” 
    “Okay, puppy. Show me what you can do.” 
    Levi lined up and made the break. The three ball dropped in the pocket. He surveyed the table and tapped a pocket. “One ball.” 
    The one dropped and he tapped another hole. “Two ball.” 
    Again, the ball dropped. 
    “Four in the far corner.” Levi tapped the cue ball. It bounced off the side and hit the four. The ball dropped. 
    I perched on a bar stool and watched him run the table, in order, until he missed the ten. He moved with effortless grace, cool and focused on the shots. When he missed the ten by scant centimeters, I spoke. 
    “Set it up and try it again.” 
    Levi nodded and reset the shot. This time, the ten dropped. He finished the table and tossed the cue stick on the vanquished field of play. I handed him his draft. He leaned against the bar and downed a few swallows. His burning gaze never left mine. 
    “So, Stacy James. Your place or mine?”

    Micah Souther is young, talented, and gay. As the junior owner of the family business, he knows better than to look for love “on the clock.” 
    Jonas Chadwick is the new guy at the firm. Older, wiser, and a survivor of the school of hard knocks, he’s not in the market for an office romance, even if he learns for certain his young boss is gay. 
    One kiss is all it takes to send Micah and Jonas on a collision course, and when bodies collide, the friction gets hot... 
    *     *     * 
    “Jonas,” I murmured against his smiling lips. “Talk to…” His tongue flicked to mine, cutting off my request for a moment of conversation. 
    Any of my neighbors watching were getting quite a sideshow. I shoved my hand in my pocket, fumbling for my keys. They fell from my shaking fingers to the porch decking. Jonas pushed me back, breaking physical contact. I longed to see his eyes, to get some idea of what he thought, what he felt. 
    “Bend over and pick them up,” he said cheerfully as he rubbed my nipple. 
    I stared at him and tried to catch my breath. “Not in front of you, Chadwick. I know all about men like you.” 
    “Do you?” Something rough and dark in his voice gave me pause. What demon did he battle? 
    “I know enough.” I pushed him back against the side of the house, not with some little force. “Why did you come back?” 
    “I don’t know. Maybe to satisfy my curiosity.” 
    “Bull.” I fisted my hands in his shirt and gave him a shake. “We take this inside, make it private, or we’re done here.” 
    Jonas stared at me for the longest twenty seconds of my life, then he nodded. I released him and he bent over, snagged my keys, and dropped them into my outstretched palm. I unlocked the door and invited the devil into my home for the second time in one day. 
    “I need a drink. Do you want one, Jonas?” I needed to haul him into my bedroom and have my way with him, that’s what I needed. My insides quivered. I shivered despite the warm evening. 
    But I knew, to my sorrow, that quickie sex now would be a mistake, and I bet he knew it, too. 
    “I’ll take a brandy if you have it.” 
    “I hope you’ll settle for bourbon.” 
    I poured us each a generous shot and handed him one. He nodded and tossed it back like a pro. I followed suit, and we set out empties down on the counter in unison. Jonas reached for me again. I lifted my chin and stared him down. His hand dropped to his side. 
    I wanted him. God, how I wanted him. I ached with it. His gaze met mine before flicking down to the bulge in my pants and back up. 
    “Looks nice.” 
    “It’s a sock,” I told him cheerily, in the same tone that he’d used to tell me to bend over. 
    “Hmm. Well, that’s the risk we run, isn’t it?”

    Scott Thomas is tagged to oversee the new commuter rail line from Easton to Marionville, a high profile project that demands expertise. His love of trains makes him a natural for the job. When a friend invites him on a Mystery Train Dinner Adventure, Scott’s onboard for an evening of fun. He gets more than he ever dreamed about when he meets his ideal tall, dark haired stranger on the adventure. 
    Dakota Reece views the new commuter rail as the opening he’s needed for him and his brother to build their own firm and future. Planning a start-up company while working on the commuter rail project is hard work, and Dakota takes an evening off to relax on the Mystery Train. When the train stops to serve dinner, Dakota is boldly cruised by a fellow passenger. He has to get to know this smart, sexy man and asks Scott to join him for a drink.   
    Scott and Dakota hit it off and a quiet cup of coffee leads to unexpected possibilities - and consequences. When Dakota makes a sudden decision to advance his timeline, Scott will do whatever is necessary to keep them together, on track, and avoiding derailment. 
    * * * 
    Dakota fell into step beside me as we climbed the stairs. “This is some place, isn’t it? Booze, boys and boogie.” 
    “Yep. I generally stick to the cafe when I come here, but every once in a while I go downstairs to the Cancun Bar.” 
    We agreed on a table against the rear wall. He pulled out my chair and then sat across from me, his hands folded on the table. 
    “I’m really surprised this place doesn’t have a back room. It’s got everything else a guy needs for a memorable night on the town.” 
    “The back room is tucked in behind the stage. Go through the arch with the twinkling white lights. You gotta pay the cover charge to conduct illicit activities with strangers at Frolic.” 
    He grinned, his silver eyes glittering in the low lighting. “I think you’d be worth the five bucks tonight.” 
    I bet he was worth a lot more. “Thanks. I think. I’m getting a decaf. What would you like?” 
    “Oh, no. I asked you, so I’m buying.” 
    As we were only talking about two dollars, I didn’t argue. The server arrived and greeted me by name. Dakota ordered two decafs and then blinked at Charlie’s retreating backside. He lowered his voice. 
    “I don’t want to be politically incorrect here, but is she…” 
    “Well, she is for tonight. Tomorrow, he’ll be in a suit in a corner office on the ninth floor.” 
    “Damn. No offense to present company, but Charlie is fucking hot.” 
    “Charlie does have that effect on everyone. Thanks for the coffee, by the way.” 
    “My pleasure. Will you have dinner with me tomorrow evening?” 
    “Hell, yeah, but I insist on at least Dutch treat.” I pointed my finger at him before he could speak. “If you argue, we’ll end up at the food court at the mall.” 
    Dakota rested his hand, palm up, on the table between us. I smiled and laid my hand in his. Little tendrils of heat snaked up my arm and made me shiver as his fingers closed around mine. I should’ve paid the cover charge so I could haul him into the back room, but rushing could ruin a lovely friendship.  
    “When did you move to Marionville?” I asked. 
    He sipped his coffee. “I don’t live here. I’ve been in and out of town on business for the last year or so. But if my company is awarded part of the new commuter rail job, I’ll move here for the duration.” 
    It was just my luck the most interesting guy I’d met in the last twenty years might be gone for good in a week. And if not, I had an even bigger problem, like a  conflict of interest problem.

    Wynn DeRocher’s talent and ambition catapulted his band to the top of the charts, but he paid a steep price to achieve success. He needs a flesh and blood man, one who understands the demands of his music. He needs the man he let get away - Jude Thatcher. 
    Wynn pitches a proposal to Jude - a lucrative job modeling the band’s new line of signature logo'd clothing. Jude accepts but both men know it’ll take more than fancy dinners and limo rides to convince him to risk his heart again. 
    To covet might be a sin, but Jude needs a gesture of good faith. And he wants Wynn’s leather jacket as much as he wants Wynn. Almost. 
    * * * * * 
    Wynn held the hip-length coat for me as I slipped my arms into the sleeves, then he let the weight of it come to rest on my shoulders. The jacket was light, but incredibly warm. I flipped open the left side to check the lining. 
    “Don’t bother. You’d have to cut the cloth to see what the insulating layer is.” 
    I stretched my arms out in front of my chest. The jacket moved with me, giving just enough to remain comfortable. 
    “This is a nice jacket. I see why you liked. Does he make bombers?” 
    Wynn reached in the closet and pulled out a black bomber complete with silver studs and chains. He caressed a front panel. “This is so you, Jude. Take it.” 
    For a moment, I was tempted. “I can’t accept this. It’s hand-stitched so I’m sure it was expensive.” 
    “Nine large. But take it. Call it a signing bonus.” 
    “Wynn, I don’t know the first thing about modeling. You need a professional, or better yet, model this yourself. Your fans will go wild.” 
    His fingers trailed down my leather-clad arm until they found mine. He hesitated, then stroked his thumb over my knuckles. His voice was so low I had to strain to hear it. 
    “I knew you were here, Jude. I came back to Marionville to find you.”
