Blog Tour ~ Unbound by Kimberly Derting ~ Excerpt + Giveaway

Morning everyone,

Welcome to the Blog Tour for Kimberly Derting’s newest book: Unbound! I just had to participate when I saw that supercute and sweet cover.

For today’s post I have the usual book/author information, but I also got a lovely excerpt and a giveaway (open INT).

So let’s get started. twirls

Do opposites really attract?
Emerson Monroe McLean is a true Texan through and through. But she’s never wanted to be like the other girls she grew up with, the ones who view debutante balls and sororities as stepping-stones to landing the perfect husband.
Yet everyone underestimates Em. When they look at the leggy blonde, all they see is a serial-dater who leaves a string of broken hearts in her wake. What people don’t realize is that keeping guys at arms length is more than just about having a good time; it’s a deep-rooted defense

Lucas Harper is California born and bred. The product of his wealthy upbringing and an overbearing mother, Lucas has always been told where to be and when to be there. But after his older brother’s death, Lucas is tired of being a puppet.
Taking a break to figure out what he wants out of life, he moves to West Beach to spend the summer surfing. It’s there that he meets Emerson McLean, the free-spirited beauty who lures him into her bed. Refusing to be tied down, she’s unlike any girl he’s every known.

Can they find common ground…or will their differences tear them apart?
Their chemistry is undeniable. There’s only one hitch: Lucas already has a fiancée. And when she lands on his doorstep, Emerson realizes that for the first time in her life, she has genuine feelings for a guy.

With her heart on the line, Emerson discovers that, win or lose, she isn’t the kind of girl to play by the rules.

Excerpt time!

I sighed, holding my own wince inside. “Go lie down, Chuckles.”

This time he didn’t laugh, but his eyebrow hitched up. “Well, I definitely wasn’t expecting that. If this is my reward for getting my ass beat, then it was totally worth it.”

“Shut up. There’s no reward for stupidity. You shoulda told them thanks but no thanks the second they even suggested you face off with them. But . . . ,” I smiled suggestively and drawled, “I happen to know a thing or two. And I might could help a fella out.”

He growled. “Goddamn, I love it when you speak Texas to me.” He lowered himself gently on the bed, face up, giving me an I’m ready look.

“Nice try.” I pasted a tolerant expression on my face. “But I’m gonna need you to roll over, Romeo.”

“Can’t blame a guy for trying,” he muttered as he turned to bury his face into his pillow.

I climbed onto the bed, ignoring the flood of memories this position brought with it. It felt like home, being here, in bed with Lucas.

Lowering my hands to his shoulders, Lucas groaned at the lightest pressure, only this wasn’t a good groan. This was a kill-me-now groan. I pulled back my hand.

“Sorry,” I told him. “This might hurt a little. But I need you to trust me.”

His hand shot back and snagged me by the wrist. “I don’t trust a lot of people, Em. But you . . . ” His voice was low and thick. “I have complete faith in you.”
