Aidan Ross might be an engineering genius, but people skills? Not this soldier’s forte. Thankfully, a trusted friend is accompanying him to a make-or-break tradeshow…but then a bubbly redhead hops into his truck, claiming to be his new road trip buddy. She’s a gorgeous distraction he can’t afford. Or ignore. 
Delaney Harper comes from a family of engineers—male engineers. With several impressive projects under her belt, she’s on a mission to prove she can hang with the big boys, too. But cracking the sexy, closed-off CEO is tougher than she expects…and hotter than she could have imagined.
With the tempting woman disrupting his carefully planned schedule, Aidan can’t focus on the road, much less their upcoming presentation. The future of his company is riding on this trip, and if they’re to land a huge account, he has to keep his head—and his heart—in the game…

Delaney’s eyes opened as she scrambled to her feet, her heartbeat pounding in her ears. Getting caught eavesdropping on her boss’s private moment would be an awful idea. She could kiss any hope of a promotion good- bye if that happened.
She headed back across the room and barely got her butt in the chair before the bathroom door opened. She grabbed her laptop, willed herself to stay calm as she jabbed at the keyboard.
God, she’d done nothing but work the past few months, trying to make a good, strong impression on Harold, hoping he’d give her a chance to run her own project. On top of that, she’d worked nights and weekends to hone the presentation.
Aidan stalked out of the bathroom in much the same way he’d stalked in, only this time all he had on were his jeans.
With the buttons undone.

The soft mat of hair trailed down to Happy Land. But it was apparent that underneath his unbuttoned jeans, Aidan was commando.

Delaney’s mouth dried. She should tear her gaze away, plant it firmly on the computer screen, turn her mind from the erotic path it’d taken to the more sane one.
Damn it.
She knew what she had to do, yet she couldn’t. Look. Away.
Thank God he seemed too preoccupied with grabbing his duffel bag off the bed and heading back to the bathroom. Once the door shut, she slumped against the chair, the softly padded fabric against her thin tank top the only thing grounding her in place. She heaved in a deep, steadying breath and fanned herself with one hand. He was way too sexy for his own good...or hers.

In her free time, she's busy conquering her CrossFit fears: ring dips, muscle snatches, and the dreaded 800 meter run. Her family appreciates her attempts at cooking and cleaning, although she spends it mostly daydreaming about her characters, which sometimes results in a burnt meal and a half-cleaned house.

 Road Trip Survival Tips
Summer’s here! For me this means a chance to motor down the highway toward some outdoor adventure. Generally, it involves a visit to the beach, or a wine tasting, or heading down the freeway for a long weekend getaway. But there are some definite road trip survival essentials, things that I think you gotta bring along to save a few bucks or stop you from clobbering someone before the trip even starts. Not that I’d know what that’s about! *stares at ceiling and whistles softly*
Ready? Here’s my list of survival tips for the next time you head down the road:
1.       Traveling with kids? Alcohol of your choice. Not that I endorse drinking and driving, mind you, but if you’re a passenger, those teensy shot bottles can sure come in handy once you make one of the gazillion stops necessary because one of the kids has to pee. If it weren’t for those shots, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have survived the one time I went on a two-week road trip with a couple of kids under ten. We were less than a minute out of the driveway when my nephew shouted from the back of the van, “My eye! My eye! Sister poked me in the eye!”  Oh, yeah, those shot bottles were a life saver…
2.       Several pairs of ear plugs combined with tip #1 above are the ultimate road trip life savers!
3.       Food. The junk food variety. Stuff you wouldn’t normally keep in the house but stocking up on this road trip essential is necessary to a good time. Mainly because cramming a few chips in your mouth helps keep the peace when the driver refuses to believe the directions Siri blares from the car speakers and you end up lost in the backwoods of Montana. Speaking theoretically, of course…
4.       Sunblock. That’s right. Even if you aren’t headed to the beach or deliberately spending time in the sun, smearing on sunblock regularly is a necessity. Anyone who’s ever driven in a pair of shorts for HOURS knows that of which I speak and had the two-tone legs to prove it!
5.       Bribe money. As much as I don’t believe in bribing kids into behaving well, sometimes you get so desperate for ten minutes of silence, a coupla hundred dollars is so worth it! Wait. A couple of hundred dollars? Hmmm…now I’m kinda wondering if I’ve been played by the kids…
And there you have it! My survival tips for road tripping this summer. What are your tips?
