Loveswept / August 18, 2015 / $2.99 digital
Perfect for fans of Monica Murphy and Cecy Robson, Sidney Halston’s scorching new MMA romance proves there are no holds barred when it comes to seduction.
As an Army brat, Violet Channing could never meet her dad’s high expectations. But in the eyes of her best friend, she could do no wrong. He even insisted that he should be her first kiss. Now Cain Sorensen is all grown up, hardened by years in special ops and always looking for a good fight. Tall, with striking blue eyes and impossibly blond hair, he’s a modern-day Viking warrior. Of course, Violet’s all grown up, too, and she’s ready to surrender to his every command.
Cain knows he’s bad for Violet. His work is dangerous, and his hobbies are downright deadly. As a private mercenary and a mixed martial arts fighter, he could never let such an innocent soul into his world. And yet his most grueling combat training is no match for Violet’s killer curves, hot touch, and suggestive glances. Now all of Cain’s most explosive fantasies are coming true—but once they cross the line between friends and lovers, there’s no turning back.
Violet Channing and Cain Sorensen have been best friends and army brats since practically birth. Jeremy Edwards made up the third part of their trio and when the slightly older boys decided to enlist in the Army, Cain didn’t leave before giving Violet her first kiss. She was in full crush mode over the silent and sexy Cain, but he humiliatingly never pursued her. Jeremy did, however, and over the years her relationship with Jeremy grew. They were engaged when he was killed in combat, and Cain was there to see the tragedy play out. Wracked with survivor’s guilt, Cain returned home but he couldn’t find it in himself to betray Jeremy and claim Violet as his own, despite the fact that he has wanted her as long as Jeremy did. Longer even, since Jeremy has been dead for a few years. In Sidney Halston’s Laid Out, friends turned lovers takes a tortured but seductive turn.
