Derek, checking out Elly in the rear-view mirror of his truck. I think this sentence gives new meaning to "rear-view!": "That tight T-shirt fit her like a coat of paint, and when she bent to pick up the shovel and he’d caught a glimpse of pink panties cupping her butt, he was pretty sure his mouth fell open." BLUEBONNETS FOR ELLY is available from online booksellers, including Amazon.

From my sexy romantic suspense, GARDEN OF SERENITY when the heroine is trying to figure out how she knows the hero:
