Welcome to Mid Week Tease. Thanks to the lovely and talented Sandra Bunino, who created this weekly fun. Myself and other author friends post a little something for you, the readers, from some of our published works, up-and-coming releases, and WIP (Works in Progress).
Claimed by the Bad Boy, the story of Ryker Cage and Molly Monroe, will be coming soon from Decadent Publishing. For those of you who read book one in my Bad Boy Fever series, Spanked by the Bad Boy, you gained a glimpse of Declan's identical twin brother, Ryker. And if you haven't read book one, Declan and Tiffany's story, what are you waiting for? *Smiles*
Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance, BDSM, Multiple Partners, Suspense

Something always brings him back to her...
Ryker Cage is a rough guy, with very particular tastes when it comes to sex. Rough, hard, and dirty is the extent of his repertoire. Never soft. He doesn’t have a clue about connecting with his sensitive side in the bedroom, or that find-your-inner-femininity bullshit. He fears nothing, except —his feelings for the sweet and innocent Molly Monroe.
The bad boy who lived next door claimed Molly’s heart long ago. Crazy, or not, she loves him. Always has. No matter what he does to push her away, nor how far he runs, Ryker is the one man she’ll never stop loving.
When Ryker finally finds his way back home, will he find the courage to claim what's always been his? Or, will he be destined for heartache when someone threatens to take everything away?
Molly turned, snagged her cell from the desk, tapped the screen, and bit back a gasp when she saw the avatar of Darth Vader.
He was the one man who’d become an expert at breaking her heart, and over the years, she’d turned into a woman skilled at letting him. Well, enough was enough. No more. Their crazy rollercoaster of a relationship, if you could even call it that, derailed one too many times. She was tired of waiting for him to get his shit together, and decided she was done being yanked into his gravitational pull. No more hopeful silliness. No more obsessing.
I should delete the text without reading it, she thought, biting at the inside of her cheek. She almost followed through. Her finger had been ready to do the deed, then for some insane reason, she gave in, tapped the message, and read.
What are you doing?
Seriously? She hadn’t heard from him in months. In fact, the last she knew, he’d been in Singapore working. When she ran into his twin a while back, she’d asked after Ryker, only to hear Declan say he didn’t know how his brother was doing. The thing was, she believed him. Ryker’s ability to shut everyone out of his life was just one of the things he was good at. He’d always been good at walking away. It was the sticking around part he didn’t do so well.
Pissed, Molly closed the text, willed her stomach to stop flip-flopping, took a breath, and twirled back around with a smile she didn’t feel, only to see Jack staring at her in that hawkish way he possessed. Sometimes, when he looked at her in such a way, he reminded her of her dad when he was on one of his I-want-the-truth-missions, and the memory of Banning Monroe when he was ramping up, wasn’t something she cared to remember.
“Important?” Jack asked, studying her face with an intense expression.
“Nope.” Clearing her thoughts, she soldiered to the door of her office, grabbing his hand as she passed. “Let’s eat. I’m starving.”
