Virtual Blog Tour ~ Mysti Holiday ~ Blue Light Special

Mysti: Hi Karin. Caleb. Come on in and make yourselves comfy.

Karin: Thanks! We’re excited to be here. Right, Handsome? :::elbows Caleb in the ribs:::

Caleb: Yeah. Right. I love talking about myself. :::rolls eyes:::

Mysti: :::laughs::: Typical guy. Don’t worry, this shouldn’t be too painful. Karin, you two seem pretty cozy now, but I understand things weren’t always so rosy. Tell us how you two first met, and what you thought of Caleb the first time you laid eyes on the guy.

Caleb: Uh oh.

Karin: Yeah, uh oh. I was driving home at the crack of dawn one day – I’m a bartender, and I don’t usually get out of work until 3 a.m. or so – when what do I see in my rear view mirror?

Caleb: You had to ask her right? I swear, she’ll never let me forget this.

Karin: Flashing lights! Yes, folks, that’s right ... he pulled me over. And not because I was doing anything wrong .... nope. Because he’d appointed himself as my babysitter. :::jabs self in chest::: Do I look like I need a babysitter?

Caleb: You’re acting like it.

Karin: :::flashes him an evil glance::: I have to admit, though, there are worse things than being pulled over by a hot guy in a uniform. ::::wiggles eyebrows:::

Mysti: What about you, Caleb? What did you think when you first saw her?

Caleb: :::snorts::: My best friend calls and says, “Take care of my little sister for me.” I’m picturing some cute little girl with Shirley Temple curls. I got freaking Barbie. I mean, holy crap, look at her. :::leans over and brushes her face with his fingertips::: She’s gorgeous.

Karin: Awww ... baby.

Caleb: You took my breath away. You still do.

Karin: :::sighs:::

Mysti: :::clears throat::: So ... I hate to ruin the moment, but we need to move on. :::looks at list of questions::: If you were up at Karaoke night, what would you sing?

Caleb: God. Nothing. I couldn’t do that to the audience.

Karin: Hey, baby, I’ve heard you sing before – in the shower. You’re not so bad... of course you were naked, so I was a little distracted. Pick something out and sing it to me.

Caleb: Hmmm.... how about “Don’t Be Stupid”. Or, “You Drive Me Crazy”. Or ...

Karin: All right, enough already. Though, actually, those are kind of sappy songs when you think about it.

Mysti: What about you, Karin? What would you sing to Caleb.

Karin: Ooh.. that’s easy. “Touch My Body”. :::gives a little moan:::

Caleb: :::leans close and murmurs::: Any time, any place.

Karin: :::takes a deep breath::: Um, Mysti. Something’s come up, we’ll have to talk again later. ::::stands, grabs Caleb’s hand and drags him out the door:::

Mysti: :::laughs::: Have fun! And thanks for stopping by.

When Karin Lattimer moves across the country and her over-protective brother asks his friend Caleb Hawkes to keep an eye on her, she’s more than annoyed…she’s turned on. The attentive cop is a walking wet dream, but Karin knows he’s only hanging around out of a sense of duty. Acting on her crazy attraction would reveal more than the man’s buff body—it would also reveal her heart.

Caleb is well aware that Karin is all woman. He can’t keep his eyes off her and his hands itch to touch her. But she’s not one-night-stand material, and he firmly believes cops make lousy partners for long-term relationships.

Still, thinking clearly isn’t a top priority when Karin and Caleb finally touch. Sparks fly and barriers melt away as easily as their inhibitions, but can she convince him there's more to life than playing it safe?


Caleb grinned and tapped his watch. “Time for last call.”
“Who died and made you my boss?” Karin sauntered to the other end of the bar, purposely adding a little more swing than usual to her hips as she walked away, sure in the knowledge his gaze was locked on her ass. So what if he was a jerk who was “babysitting” her as a favor to her brother. Just because she was miles away from her home town in Missouri didn’t mean she needed a keeper. No matter why he was there, fact was he stirred her up in the worst way and she didn’t figure it was right she should be the only one feeling all het up.
“Hey, baby!” The shout was followed by a fair number of cat calls from the pile of barely legal boys hanging on the far end of the bar.
Karin turned and smiled at them, then took three slow steps to where they stood.
“The name’s Karin, honey. Not Baby.” She knew exactly how to piss off Caleb and took great pleasure in leaning over the bar, her breasts all but falling out of her low cut tank. She made eye contact with the boy closest to her, walked her fingertips up his chest, and ended with a tweak of his cheek with her perfectly manicured nails. “But, with the right incentive, I’ll answer to just about anything.” She purred the words and touched the tip of her tongue to her upper lip. She’d need to give the boy a napkin for his drool pretty soon, but hell, the tips should be good.
When he didn’t say anything else, she shook her head. “Last call, boys. Can I get you one final drink?” She trailed a finger down her throat to the V-neck of her shirt before she continued. “A Slippery Nipple, maybe? A Piece of Ass or a Bald Pussy?” She licked her lips again and kept them parted, warm and moist, for a heartbeat before continuing. “Or, my personal favorite—a Sloe...Comfortable...Screw?”
