Weekend Feature: The Couple by Harlie Williams + Giveaway


The Couple by Harlie Williams

A woman has one thing on her mind tonight…sex. Dirty, sweaty, kinky sex with a cowboy. With her man gone more than he is at home, she needs the release.

After being away for two weeks, a cowboy goes looking for someone to play with for the night. Being away is part of the job but not having someone to come home to is hurting his soul. Feeling disconnected in his love life, the red head will be perfect.

Once they meet, can one night of pure passion led to more than just a one night stand for either of them? Communication is the key to every relationship. Can these two find a way to connect emotionally or are they destined for heartache.


Exclusive Excerpt

“What’s a girl like you doing at a bar like this?” he asked.

Her voice was a purr, like a cat well satisfied with its stolen pitcher of cream. “I’m looking for someone special.”

Hoping that she meant him he asked, “Did you find him yet?”

“Maybe.” The glint in her eye told him he was definitely in the running.  However, I’m not looking to hook up with just any old cowboy.  He must be able to go the full eight seconds and come back for more.”  She eyed him from head to toe.  “Think you can handle that?”

Oh, I can most definitely handle you sweetheart.

Not wanting to seem too eager he replied, “I’m not sure but I’m willing to try.”

“Do or do not.  There is no try.”  He struggled not to let his grin escape.  The fact that she was trying to seduce him made his dick twitch.

“Let’s just say I’m looking to burn off some pent up frustration. A little excess energy.  And I’ve got plenty to burn.”

The way she shivered at his words, he knew he almost had her.  He winked as she licked her crimson lips and blew out a small breath.  Damn what this woman is doing to him.

He pushed her knees apart with his left leg and was rewarded with the amazing scent of her arousal.  The knowledge she was wet for him had him close to going off in his jeans.

Houston, we have lift-off!

“Why don’t you have a seat cowboy and we’ll talk about it.”

She gasped when he shocked her with a brush of his lips against hers; fighting with everything he had not to deepen the kiss.

Patience, patience.

He would play her game for the moment but sooner or later, she would be his.  Tied up and begging for more.

He asked her, “Now about that eight second ride?”

Let’s Talk

Q: Tell our readers why you think they’ll enjoy The Couple

A: I love short stories. They can be fun, sexy and easy to read. My debut can be read in the carpool line, waiting at the doctor’s office or if you just need a break from cleaning your house. I can’t get enough of two series that are out there right now. 1Night Stand and The Edge by Decadent Publishing. Their quick, easy and a whole lot of fun to read.

Q: You may have noticed we like to include our favorite quote in our reviews of the books we read. What is your favorite quote from The Couple?

A: My favorite quote from The Couple is:

Not wanting to seem too eager he replied, “I’m not sure but I’m willing to try.”

“Do or do not. There is no try.” He struggled not to let his grin escape. The fact that she was trying to seduce him made his dick twitch.

    I prefer both. It all depends on how much time I have. When I’m waiting for my kids during their parctices I love a good,short, read. At home in the evenings is when I’ll usually start a longer read.

  2. Lori Meehan says

    Well I like them both. If a short story is written well, then it has everything a full length book does in its few pages.

  3. says

    Oh I like them both! Shorties are perfect for just before I go to sleep and cannot get all wrapped up in a longer story (then stay up too late reading it). I read The Couple like that and had some fabulous dreams. *wink*

    Please do not count me in for the giveaway. Just wanted to stop by and comment. 😉

  4. Maria D. says

    I usually prefer longer stories – no need to enter me in the giveaway as I do already have a copy of “The Couple”.

    Congrats to Harlie on her new release.

  5. says

    I don’t expect it will take me until Mar 1 to write this comment, unless you have really tough spam bot filters. Better start now just in case you do. I prefer longer books, but if I only have a couple of hours to read, then I appreciate the shorter novelette.

  6. Mary Preston says

    I do prefer longer stories. I feel that with a short story I’m just starting to get into it & then it ends.


  7. Sandypo says

    I prefer full length stories. At the library I will almost always put a book back on the shelf if it is too thin…but The Couple sounds like the exception to the rule!

  8. Joanne B says

    I enjoy them all. Which I read depends on the amount to time I have. Sometime you just need a quick read, where as other times, you want a full length book.


  9. EvelynS says

    I prefer longer novels, but shorter ones are nice when I don’t have time to devote to a longer novel. Thanks for the giveaway!
