Bad For You
Christi Barth
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 3rd

USA Today bestselling author Christi Barth launches a sexy new series about three bad-boy brothers in Witness Protection who are about to learn that going good is harder than they thought…

Doctor Mollie Vickers loves the tight-knit community of her tiny Oregon town. But she’s not a fan of the limited dating options. Sleep with a guy who tried to copy off her in junior high? Pass. Mollie’s sex life is flatlining… until a deliciously handsome man she’s never seen before stops to help her fix a flat tire.

As an ex-mobster, Rafe Maguire’s no saint. But he’s trying to turn over a new leaf. Although he probably shouldn’t kiss the hot doctor on the side of the highway. Or suggest a no-strings fling with a woman he has no business pursuing. Rafe’s life is too complicated for love—his new WITSEC-provided identity doesn’t fit him at all and there’s a U.S. Marshal watching his every move. He can’t tell Mollie the truth… but their chemistry is scorching and being good doesn’t mean he can’t be a little bad.

Mollie can’t resist the guy who looks rough, talks tough, and is loyal to the bone. But it’s obvious Rafe is keeping secrets. When the truth comes out, Mollie must decide if she could ever love an ex-mobster… or if this bad boy has truly gone good.

“How about we start over?” Rafe snaked an arm around her waist, dragging her up to her toes. Mollie’s neck tilted back the second before he pressed his lips to hers.



A kiss to ground her in the moment. A kiss to clear out whatever had fuzzed her head on the way out the door and get her focused solely on him.

The kiss started out being for Mollie. But it didn’t take more than a nip at her soft lower lip, sinking his teeth into it until she pressed even harder against him, before Rafe knew the kiss was for his benefit, too. A way to prove that whatever had flared between them on the side of the road wasn’t an accident. That it wasn’t a one-time thing. A way to prove to himself that it’d be worth sitting through an undoubtedly painful burger-and-beer’s worth of small talk to get to the dessert of her sweet lips.

Rafe palmed her ass. God, it was sweet; firm and round and he couldn’t wait to see it naked and facing him while she knelt on a bed with all that dark hair streaming down her pale back. Just touching it wasn’t enough. So Rafe squeezed, molding the lusciously round globe with his fingers until Mollie’s hips tilted forward. Then he felt her leg twine up and around the back of his.

Yeah. This was definitely a two-way super highway of lust.

That was the signal he needed to back off. So he eased his tongue out of her mouth with a final, teasing swipe along the smooth skin on the back of her lower lip. Her leg slid back down. Rafe took her hand, smiling right into those eyes full of secrets and sex. “Hi, Doc. You look great.”

“You do, too.” The blatant admiration in her gaze made him glad he’d pulled out a shirt with a collar. Glad he’d made Kellan iron it, too.

“Ready to go?”

Her gaze skittered to the door, and then back to him with an almost audible screech. “You have no idea.”

Instead of leading her off the porch, Rafe froze. Because he didn’t like the tone of her voice. Lots of unhappiness there. He didn’t know her living situation, but if she had a dad or a roommate who was treating her like shit, they’d have to start the date over for a third time. Right after he went inside and made clear the rules of respecting a woman to whoever sent her running out the door to him.

Rafe curled his hand around her elbow. He put his mouth right at her ear and said in a low, harsh growl, “If there’s a problem, Doc, you can tell me. And I promise you I’ll handle it.”

“What kind of a problem?”

“Anything. Anything that you don’t like. I can make it right.”

Christi Barth earned a Masters degree in vocal performance and embarked upon a career on the stage. A love of romance then drew her to wedding planning.  Ultimately she succumbed to her lifelong love of books and now writes award-winning contemporary romance, including the Naked Men and Aisle Bound series. Christi can always be found whipping up gourmet meals (for fun, honest!) or with her nose in a book. She lives in Maryland with the best husband in the world.
