His Kind of Trouble Samantha HunterHis Kind of Trouble by Samantha Hunter


Danger is bodyguard Chance Berringer’s first, last and middle name. Protecting celebrity chef Ana Perez—a hot little firecracker with a mouth to match—for two weeks in Mexico is more vacation than job. Just keep his eyes on her, and his hands off. How hard can it be?

Plenty hard.

Ana doesn’t want a babysitter during the holidays. Even if Chance’s muscled hotness (complete with wicked grin) makes him a mouthwatering dish. But when the heat starts sizzling in the bedroom—and beyond—will this hot tamale cause more trouble than Chance can handle?

Exclusive Excerpt

Drifting off, Chance finally gave into the urge to sleep, something he hadn’t done for days. Sensual images of Ana infiltrated his dreams. Her hands, her mouth. . .until a distant sound had him awake, sitting upright, staring at the door.

The knob was turning, slowly, silently, as if not to be heard. It was well after midnight, the house silent, Ana’s family sleeping. Whoever this was, they weren’t invited.

Chance stood, hugging the wall by the door, hardly breathing as he lay in wait.

The door opened slightly, and someone stepped in.

He moved quickly from behind, knowing from the moment his hands touched her, and his nose caught the scent of her hair, who it was in his grasp.

“Ana?” he whispered, letting go and shutting the door quietly.

She stood in the soft light of his room, looking at him with those big brown eyes, her hair a little messy, as if she had just left her own bed. She wore a thin, cream-colored shift that – God help him – showed the lovely silhouette of her naked form underneath the fabric.

“What are you doing here? I could have hurt you,” he said, not taking one step closer.

For the first time since he’d met her, Ana Perez looked uncertain.

“I couldn’t sleep. I’m sorry, I. . .I shouldn’t have come. I don’t know what I was thinking,” she said, nervous. “I’m sorry,” she repeated. “Good night.”

Chance stopped her with a hand on her shoulder before she could turn the knob.

“Ana, what were you thinking?

He was so close, standing right behind her, that her scent seemed to surround him, hypnotizing him. He drew her back against him, his hands on her shoulders, his mouth by her ear.

“Were you thinking about me?” he whispered.

She nodded, swallowing hard. “I wanted to make sure you were okay,” she said softly, turning in his arms and raising a hand to his face, touching his bruise gingerly. “And to thank you.”

“For what?”

“For helping,” she said with a slight smile.

“I should have stopped the fight,” he said, rubbing his chin lightly along her hairline, making her close her eyes and tip her head back for more. “I’m sorry I let it go that far.”
“Thank you,” she said offering her lips up for a kiss that blotted out anything else. Pulling her up against him, his arms closed around her, the two of them pressed together completely.

“You were thinking about this?” he asked roughly before his tongue took to investigating her bottom lip.


It was what he wanted to hear.

“Me, too. I couldn’t get this afternoon out of my head,” he admitted, as hungry as she was. Lifting her thigh, she slid her leg against his, opening so that her body brought his erection even closer to her core. Chance groaned, pressing in.

“Ana,” he said on a choked breath, sliding his hands into her hair and holding her still as he dove back in for a deeper kiss, his tongue exploring her deeply, tangling with hers as she did the same to him.

She tasted so good, she thought vaguely, as she let him hold her and move her any way he pleased. It was wonderful as he his hands molded to her bottom, grinding her against him, and she shuddered with need as he brought her very close to coming, but then loosened his hold.

She moaned a little in protest, and he pulled her up so that she was no longer standing, but had to wrap her arms and legs around him and hold on. His towel had hit the floor with the motion, and he caught his breath on a choked curse, feeling her against him.

Perfect, as he knew she would be.

    The riskiest thing I ever did was choosing to remove myself from substitute teacher lists. It was where my degree was and what I had wanted to do even though it wasn’t panning out. In the end I got this really great job I love that is not related to teaching and I’m super happy with it!

    I loved Ms. Hunter’s Christmas book from 2010! I read it again this year.

    • says

      Excellent! I love it when people take risks that break them out of old patterns and then that really pays off!

      And thank you so much for loving the Xmas book! :)

    The riskiest thing I ever did was go on an overseas mission trip. It was through a mission agency, with my husband to Ukraine. We were filling in for a Missionary Doctor on furlough. I didn’t know the language, and was going to be out in a rural area in primative conditions. The trip turned out wonderful. I picked up the language fairly quickly, hit it off with the nurses, the people were very grateful. The translator was wonderful and the countryside very beautiful. One of the best trips ever. I learned a lot about the history and the culture of Ukraine. I’m glad I took the risk.

  4. CrystalGB says

    Getting married after only knowing my husband a few months. It has been 9 1/2 years since we got married so it was a good risk. :)

    • says

      Oh, I know this! My first biggest risk was getting a divorce in my 20s and my second was meeting my current husband online when I was 31 and it’s been almost 20 years for us, so yay!


  5. Sandypo says

    Probably shoplifting with my best friend (while simultaneously cutting school) when I was in junior high. Got away with it but the consequences would have been steep if we’d been caught!

  6. CassandraG says

    Never done anything risky. And if I had done something risky, the lesson would be “never do it again”.

  7. says

    I’ve actually not done really risky things (I’m not much of a risk taker, but I’m working on it!)
    But I have done something that terrified me, and that’s tell someone that I was interested in them — and no, unfortunately it was not worth it.
    Looking forward to the book!

  8. Diane Sallans says

    I don’t think I’ve ever taken a big risk – at least it wasn’t a risk in my eyes – tho others have said I’ve taken risks when I went away to college, changed jobs, even that it was a risk to put an addition on my house.

    • says

      These things are risks – we don’t think of them that way, but any change is really a risk, big or small, and life is full of them. I hope the addition went well — that’s definitely a big one :)


  9. Cynthia (aka Artemis) says

    I’m a big risk taker. I don’t do it very often. But when I do. WOW! Let’s see…..How about…..

    I joined the United States Marine Corps. Didn’t even bother giving any of the other branches a glance. I was the oldest gal in boot camp at the time. I learned so many things about myself. Did so many things I thought were impossible. Reached goals I never knew I had. Oh yeah, it was worth every second of my blood, sweat, and tears.

    • says

      I took that risk too, just a few years ago, flying by myself for the first time etc — I had always flown and taken trips with my husband, but finally did so on my own, and it was fine. Then I did it again, now I wouldn’t think twice about it :) Mostly this is to writer’s confs, but it’s a good thing to know you can do things solo — go to a movie, to lunch, travel, etc. So good for you :)


  10. Joanne B says

    The riskiest thing I have ever done was leave everything I knew behind and move across the country to be closer to family.I’m still getting used to it, but it was well worth it.

  11. miki says

    i went to study abroad in a country i didn’t know the language at the time at all… what is worth…i hope so but the living condition were so bad than i’m now afraid to leave again

    thank you a lot for the international giveaway

  12. Karen C says

    I moved 1400 miles away from where I lived my entire life. No job and didn’t know anyone. 99% of the time I’m sure it was worth it! ;o) Thanks for the chance.

  13. kp says

    one of the riskiest things I did was leave my job to be a stay at home mom….best risk I have ever taken! And so worth it…

  14. May says

    I went out on a blind date. It turned out okay… Not the love of my life but wasn’t a horror story….
