No Reservations by Kristen Proby Blog Tour

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby comes a new story in her Fusion series…

Chase MacKenzie is not the man for Maura Jenkins. A self-proclaimed life-long bachelor, and unapologetic about his distaste for monogamy, a woman would have to be a masochist to want to fall into Chase’s bed.

And Maura is no masochist.

Chase has one strict rule: no strings attached. Which is fine with Maura because she doesn’t even really like Chase. He’s arrogant, cocky, and let’s not forget bossy. But when he aims that crooked grin at her, she goes weak in the knees. Not that she has any intentions of falling for his charms.

Definitely not.

Well, maybe just once…

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Once we’ve caught our breath, he pushes up on his arms, taking his weight off of me, and smiles down at me.

“Well, that was fun.”

“Definitely fun,” I reply with a nod, then wiggle out from under him and flip on the lamp next to the bed. I blink rapidly in the light and glance at him. He’s watching me, still kneeling in the middle of the bed, breathing hard. “I’m not staying.”

“I figured,” he says and rolls off the bed, pads into the bathroom, flushes the toilet, and returns to find me pulling on my clothes. “You don’t have to leave right now.”

Oh yes. I do.

“I should,” I reply, doing my best to seem very nonchalant. “I have plans in the morning.”

He nods. “I’ll take you home then.”

“Great plan, since I don’t have a car and it’s practically the middle of the night.”

“Or midnight.” He smirks and pulls on a pair of jeans. He doesn’t button them, or add a shirt, and instead stands there with his arms folded over his chest, watching me tug the skirt down my legs.

I can’t find my panties, and I refuse to ask for them, so I’ll just consider them a loss.

Five minutes later, we’re back in his sexy car and headed toward my condo.

“This won’t happen again,” I inform him, breaking the silence.

“No, ma’am.”

“We irritate the sh*t out of each other.”

He sighs deeply and mutters “that’s the truth” under his breath.

“So even if the chemistry is there, we won’t do this again.”

“Good plan.”

I nod and hold my pinky out to him. “Pinky swear.”

“I’m not a twelve-year-old girl.”

“No, you’re not,” I agree with a laugh. “But now I feel silly, so just do it.”

He links his pinky with mine and then pulls my hand to his mouth, kissing my knuckles.

“This is how the f*cking gets started.”

“No, sweetheart, the f*cking got started months ago.”

Whew! This is a steamy, short read that will have the pages burning up!

Maura and Chase are opposites that find themselves being drawn together. This series is so much fun and I loved reading this snippet.

This is a fast read, but a lot is going on. The way that Chase and Maura interact is genuine and steamy. Their dialogue is what gives this story the sweet yet romantic and steamy vibe.

I love reading about all of these women and even though this is short, this didn't disappoint!

I can't wait to read more!

I am a big fan of the Fusion series so was delighted to get a chance to review this latest addition. As always, Ms. Proby delivers a fun, flirty, and super sexy read.

It was great to catch up with Kat and Mac, and Thomas was a shadowy, but integral part to the story.

The teasing, cheeky banter between Chase and Maura is fun to read, and the chemistry between them is clearly combustible. But actually, it is a night of truth and dare which reveals their honest selves, and they find that they share a fundamental truth. If we ever doubted that they were meant for each other, that moment is key.

If you enjoy intelligent, sexy, and fun characters and happy endings (and really, who doesn’t?), then this is for you!

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.
