Title: Burn For You (Boys of the South #5)
Age Group: New Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 21, 2014
Cover Designer: Sarah Hansen at Okay Creations
Hosted by: Wordsmith Publicity

Book Description:
Beau Montgomery is not the typical single dad for three reasons:

1.      He’s rich and famous.

2.      He needs a nanny, like yesterday.

3.      He has no idea if eight month old, Mia, is actually his daughter.

Only, number three doesn’t matter to him at all, because he’s determined to give up everything to be a standup dad, including racing, partying, and his very favorite vice, women. Until that is, he’s invited to race at Monaco—a dream he’s always had. Now, all those things he’d sworn to give up are at his fingertips, including the very inconveniently hot nanny, Landry Basnight, who’s travelling with him.

Landry Basnight is the typical college graduate for three reasons:

1.      She’s broke and in debt up to her eyeballs.

2.      She needs a job, like yesterday.

3.      Nothing exciting ever happens in her life.

Only, number three is about to change, because she’s been hired by Beau Montgomery, son of NASCAR Racing Royalty. Landry’s parents are big fans of the Montgomerys, while she couldn’t care less—all she wants to do is make a dent in her student loan bill. However, that doesn’t stop her from falling in love with her little charge, nor does it make it easier to resist Beau’s charms.  In fact , she doesn’t resist at all.

Lines are crossed and then forgotten as Beau and Landry grow closer, but when Beau’s ex-girlfriend, the woman he’s loved since high school, and Mia’s mother shows up, everything starts to fall apart for the new couple.

Will their love weather the storm, or will Beau abandon Landry for the family he’s always wanted?

Excerpt, Part Three
For a moment I let my guard down and study him objectively. He can’t be older than twenty-five or twenty six.  “How old are you?”
He smiles and I feel my knees get all weak. “Old enough.”
“Touché, pussycat.” My eyes round and I want to die. I did not just say that. The phrase is something my family says when we play board games and whip up on each other. Nervous laughter bubbles up before I can stop myself. I wince and bite my lip.
“Laughing not allowed?”

“Sometimes it gives the wrong impression.

He raises his brows. “I don’t know about that.”

“You’re supposed to get her number, not her fucking life story,” a guy calls out.

My face heats, like I’ve just been caught making out on the couch by my parents. Mr. Big Shot flashes a look of annoyance at the guy behind me and then shakes his head. “Ignore my brother.”

“Half-brother, bitch.”

Before I can give the half-brother asshole a piece of my mind, Mr. Big Shot beats me to it. “Language, Walker. Lisa’s a lady.” He flashes me an apologetic smile.

“Fuck off, Beau.”

Mr. Big Shot’s name is Beau Montgomery? The name sounds familiar to me, but I can’t place it, other than brother to Chase Montgomery, the owner. “Drink?”

“Two bottles of VOSS.”

Water? I force my expression back to full on sexy and friendly. I practice this look in front of the mirror every time I come to work and can make it in my sleep Seriously. Meagan took a picture of me doing it.

 “Anything else?”
