Sometimes one kiss can change everything.

New Year's Eve is supposed to be a night for celebration and new beginnings. For best friends Kat and Dean, it is a nightmare filled with disastrous dates and enraged ex-girlfriends!

Lucky for them, they've got each other to help laugh off the embarrassing, and downright inappropriate, moments. But then midnight rolls around and neither of them have anyone to kiss…

There's no doubt this is a night they will always remember.

The real question is whether it will be a night they want to forget…

Lisette glanced away. She didn’t know what she hated Seth for more—hurting her body, or manipulating her family. “We aren’t on speaking terms right now.”

“Have you gotten a restraining order against him?”

“That’s just a piece of paper,” she snapped and pushed her hands through her hair. “You think paper matters to him?”

“Listen, I don’t think this is the way to go...”

Lisette grabbed the pictures and stood abruptly. “Fine. Adieu, mon ami.”

She jerked her coat on, slung her backpack over her shoulder and stalked out of the café, striking off toward the bus stop.

On her own. Again.

She glanced behind her, peering into the shadows out of habit. She hated the way Seth made her feel like a stalked animal. There was no logical explanation for the belief he was on her trail, and yet she knew he was out there. Waiting for the moment she let her guard down.

The doorbell jangled and she started at the sudden noise. Silly girl.

“Lisette. Lisette, wait,” Mathieu called after her.

She paused on the curb and watched him jog toward her, zipping up his leather jacket. He stopped under the street lamp and stared down at her. She wasn’t looking to become someone else’s problem, just someone to have her back for the moment.

The light cast his face into shadow, disguising his features. It was probably for the best. She had a serious problem when it came to falling for the bad boys, and though Mathieu walked the path of honor, there was something deliciously dark about him. And she didn’t mean the shade of his skin. It was something else, something she’d wondered about since her horizons had opened up.

She’d loved him once. Their relationship had been a flash in the pan, but he’d been her first. She doubted he’d approve of her lifestyle now, much like her family, but she didn’t need his blessing, just his muscle.

“The sixth, you said?”

“Yeah.” She turned to face him fully, ignoring the urge to glance over her shoulder.

“Do you like dogs?”

What kind of question is that?

“I do.”

“Good. Gator’s friendly and takes it personally when people don’t like him.” He flipped his collar up and glanced down the street.

“Gator?” She blinked at him.

“Yeah, my dog, Gator. You can stay with me for a while. I’ll see if I can track down Seth, but that’s it.”

Lisette gaped at the man.

Was he serious?

A tiny thread of hope shot through her. No more watching her back. A place to stay that couldn’t be linked to her financially. She couldn’t ask for more.

“Yes, I’m serious.” He spread his hands. “You taking me up on it, or not?”

It can never be said that Sidney Bristol has had a ‘normal’ life.  She is a recovering roller derby queen, former missionary, and tattoo addict. She grew up in a motor-home on the US highways (with an occasional jaunt into Canada and Mexico), traveling the rodeo circuit with her parents. Sidney has lived abroad in both Russia and Thailand, working with children and teenagers. She now lives in Texas where she splits her time between a job she loves, writing, reading and belly dancing.
