 Dear Jackson,I'm leaving you this note because I know you're very busy and I don't want to waste the town sheriff's time. Lord knows I've already wasted enough of it.

Thank you for taking me home last night and...everything else. I made you a basket of wild blueberry muffins for your trouble. That seemed like the appropriate baked good for getting naked in your living room.

I wasn't myself last night. I didn't mean to kiss you or fondle your backside or ask all those intimate questions. Thank you for pretending to enjoy it.

It was very noble of you to sleep on the couch while I was starfished on your bed. I couldn't help but notice it's quite large. The bed, that is. I swear, I didn't notice anything else when I let myself out this morning. 

As you know, Talbott's Cove is a ridiculously small town and there's no chance we can avoid each other. Not that I'd want to avoid you, of course, but I'm not sure I can look at you without thinking of the forty different ways I made a fool of myself. 

Instead of avoidance, let's try to be friends. We'll forget all about last night…if that's what you want.

Please burn this note after you read it—
Annette

p.s. I whipped up some cinnamon buns, too. Please enjoy them. I'm not sure why, but I couldn't get buns out of my mind today.

“Super sexy! Against a sensual New Orleans backdrop, Moonlight & Whiskey follows a woman’s journey toward acceptance of her body and herself.”—Helen Hoang, author of The Kiss Quotient

When life gives you curves, you gotta learn how to rock them.

Successful businesswoman Avery Barrows likes her dips and curves, but she’s sick of the haters telling her that she should be ashamed of her body instead of embracing it. Determined to send them a big f*** you, Avery resolves to cut loose during a girls’ trip, hightailing her quick-mouthed, plus-sized self to New Orleans. So, what’s a smart woman with a little extra gotta do to get laid in this town?

Not much if you ask Declan McGinn, the lead singer of BlackSmith. Tall, dark, and tattooed, with a body made for sin, Declan prefers his women as curvy as his guitars. Avery’s sharp tongue and keen mind makes him want her even more.

As they burn up the sheets, Avery and Declan realize this is no one-night (or even one-week) stand. But for all of her bluster, Avery isn’t sure she can handle any more rejection. Besides, Declan has demons of his own. Now Avery has a choice to make: play it safe, or place her trust in the hands of a man who’s as tempting as the devil himself.

Praise for Moonlight & Whiskey

“This book has it all—emotion, lots of laughs, and a touch of reality we all can relate to. Don’t miss this story.”—USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy

“Avery is the foul-mouthed heroine of my dreams. Tricia Lynne absolutely knocks it out of the park with Moonlight & Whiskey. Her fabulous voice mixed with her super steamy romance makes this an absolute must-read!”—Alexa Martin, author of Intercepted, an Amazon Best Romance of 2018 Pick

“Witty dialogue, steamy sex scenes, and heartfelt talks . . . Lynne has created a world filled with delightful, complex characters and vivid settings. —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“This is just the book I was looking for, and a new author, which I have been craving. The writing is really fantastic! Moonlight & Whiskey gives you angst, humor, sexiness, and resolution. It is a fantastic read. I connected with Avery in a way I have never connected with another leading lady.”—Reading is What I Do (five stars)

“[Lynne's] descriptions are flawless. Her characters, swoon-worthy. I can’t recommend Moonlight & Whiskey highly enough. Definitely mark this as a must-read!”—Maxym M. Martineau (five stars)
