Samantha Ann King returns with a third book in her Lovers and Friends series. Book 1 is a 4.5 Star Top Pick!
We have the pleasure of showcasing a letter that she's written to the readers of Night Owl Reviews.
I like a storyline in addition to some smokin’ sex in my erotic romances. I hope you’ll find that and more in Tempting Meredith.
Meredith is a woman who’s trying to bury her emotions because they’re too painful to deal with. She’d rather not have emotions at all, but she can’t escape them despite her tough façade, and they’re tearing her up inside. Charlie’s fascinated by her intelligence, her femininity and even that tough façade. He knows there’s more beneath it, and he’s determined to earn her trust and maybe more. Meredith is just as determined to maintain an emotional distance. She’s only interested in sex, but something about Charlie draws her in. Their relationship is further complicated when Charlie introduces her to Blaine, his best friend and boss. Blaine and Meredith share a painful past, and they must work through it in order to save Charlie and Blaine’s friendship and perhaps become something more. There’s a little exhibitionism, a little voyeurism, a little bondage and a whole lot of hot men with no inhibitions.
I hope Tempting Meredith will make you laugh, cry, feel the heat, and fall in love all over again, and yeah, maybe even inspire some fantasies.

Astrophysicist Meredith Burke's professional life is perfect. Her personal life is another story. Years ago, a ménage with the man she loved and his roommate left her with a broken heart and a secret. She hasn't trusted anyone since, but when she meets rugged hunting guide Charlie Connor she figures she doesn't need to. He's got "one-night stand" written all over him.
After one night with Meredith, Charlie needs more. She's intoxicating, and shockingly willing to give him total control of her body. When she agrees to spend an entire week with him at the lodge where he works, it's more than he'd hoped for. But Blaine Bridges, Charlie's best friend and boss, has his own secrets.
Blaine hasn't seen Meredith since that disastrous encounter eight years ago, but he still has feelings for her. Now she's dating his best friend, the man he wants for himself. When Meredith invites him to join in their naughty play, his pleasure is all-consuming. But will the secrets they all hold close destroy a beautiful beginning or bring these three lovers closer than they ever imagined?
EXCERPT: You don't have to talk, Doc. Just Listen.
Blaine couldn’t see what happened next, couldn’t make out the words Charlie murmured, but when the man pivoted to face him with Meredith still pressed against his chest, her expression was no longer embarrassed. Her eyes had the glazed, sensual look of a woman who needed to be fucked. Her breathing was fast and furious, her lips parted. Every cell in Blaine’s body reacted to her obvious desire. His heart thumped. His breathing matched hers. He wanted to touch her, to find out if her skin was as hot as it looked.
Charlie’s voice rumbled through Blaine, although he was speaking to Meredith. “You don’t have to talk, Doc. Just listen.” One of Charlie’s big hands splayed across her ribs, just below her breast.
She didn’t answer, but her breasts lifted and fell with each rapid breath, and her wide blue eyes fastened on Blaine’s. His cock revived, and he didn’t know if it was because of Charlie or Meredith.
“That’s my girl,” Charlie murmured. “Now, you said you were okay with everything. Let’s see just how okay you are.” His free hand grasped the hem of her shirt and dragged it up over her breast, then shoved one lacy cup aside and hooked it under her breast. He plucked her nipple between his thumb and finger and rolled it. Her eyes closed, but not before Blaine saw the pleasure there. Her head dropped back against Charlie’s shoulder.
That Charlie didn’t remove her clothes made it hotter than when she’d stripped naked by the lake. Rushed, more desperate, dirtier.
Blaine’s cock stood up and took notice, even if he couldn’t believe Charlie was doing this. He should talk his friend down so they all didn’t regret it later. “Maybe she’s right. We don’t have to do this now.” He forced a weak laugh. “We don’t have to talk about it at all. We can just pretend it never happened.” Except when I’m jerking off. Alone.
