What is your Fantasy Valentine’s Day?
Mmm, this is the day when my Dev realizes how much he could honestly get away with. When he stops asking to do things and starts telling me what he’s going to do. 😉 Demanding I call him a certain name I.e. sir, master, daddy. Ties me up, cuffs me and has his way and I have no control—none. Of course the kids will all have to be somewhere else so I can cry and beg for him to stop and all of that. 😉
Charlie gives the cop who pulls her over for speeding and reckless driving the performance of a lifetime, telling him that her mother is in the hospital on the edge of death.
Trooper Vin Loveanu wants nothing more than to pull her out of the vehicle and comfort her, but has to settle for sending flowers to the hospital, only to find out that the mother is not a patient. Further investigation turns up an obituary for Charlene’s mother from four years before!
Charlie’s lies, abominable driving and strong family ties continue to bring the two together. She can’t run away far enough or fast enough and maybe—just maybe she should be running to Vin—not away, even if it meant a trip over his knee.

“No, uh—wait, you mean when you got pulled over for speeding? I thought you didn’t get a ticket?” Miranda lifted a meticulously waxed and plucked brow at Charlie. Her blue eyes were perfectly curious and framed in dark, long lashes.
“I didn’t that day. He came back to my house with a ticket a couple days later. He said he looked me up to send flowers to the hospital. And when he found out I lied, he came to my house…” Charlie felt a little warm under her gray long-sleeved knit, and charcoal-colored vest. Why, she didn’t know. She and Miranda had been in trouble together many times since the third grade.
A wide grin split across Miranda’s face. “He wanted to send you flowers when he thought your Mom was really dying? So he likes you. He wants you.”
“Maybe, until he realized I’m the world’s biggest and worst liar. A big fat ticket is not as lovely as a bouquet of flowers, Miranda. But, that isn’t the worst of it… It turns out he is Jenna’s cousin. He was at their house the other night.” The cop car pulled away, but she couldn’t tell if it was him or not. Dang it.
“That means you will see him again!” Miranda held up her hand to give Charlie a high-five. “We should double-date for Valentine’s Day.”
Charlie glared at her and didn’t raise her hand to give Miranda the celebratory high-five. “I’m not sure I want to see the guy again. And I will be working all-day. Besides, he probably doesn’t want to see me either.”
“Lame, Charlie. Lame. You need to loosen up. Track this guy down, like he did you. I’m sure Jenna would help you. You’d find out really quick if he’s interested. Besides, I bet he’s hot, most cops are.” She licked her lips. “He is, isn’t he?” Miranda giggled.
“There is no way I’d do that. If he’s interested he’ll have to find me, but I’m not sure I like him anyway. He was rather—oh, I don’t know. I’m afraid he could be rather, well, like Alex.”
“Dominant, spanking?” Her perfect eyebrows rose again, her eyes sparkled and she paid absolutely no attention to what had to be an obvious embarrassment at the mention of the word ‘spanking’. “Spanking can be fun, when it’s not your brother… sexy spankings…”
