Journey to Seduction Front Cover OnlyAll the right moves 

Ever since their families were joined by marriage, Sydney Chase has been driving attorney Bryce Monroe crazy. Whether she’s in biker gear or stilettos, no other woman can compare. No one else combines tough and tender in such a sexy, irresistible package. Though Syd has him pegged as a spoiled brat, a spur-of-the-moment Vegas road trip is Bryce’s one chance to prove otherwise.

As a criminal profiler, Syd’s job is to figure people out. Somehow, beyond Bryce’s privileged background is a depth she never expected. Their cross-country trek to a motorcycle fest is turning into the hottest ride of her life—one she knows has to eventually end. Yet what happens in Vegas is impossible to forget, and Bryce isn’t letting go until he’s crashed through every single one of her defenses…


Bryce secured Sydney’s motorcycle onto the trailer next to his all-black Harley. He couldn’t believe a manly man like himself was going to drive cross-country with a pink motorcycle hitched to the back of his SUV.

He placed the luggage and cooler she’d left in the open garage in the trunk. She still hadn’t emerged from the house yet except to stick her head out to say her belongings were by the door.

Looking at the time on his cell phone, Bryce heard the garage door close and Sydney’s footsteps on the driveway. He glanced up and almost did a double take. She was delectable in a pair of black shades, a short black sweater dress that hugged her lethal curves and a gold-and-silver twisted belt around her waist. Even though she did weight training and kickboxing to stay in shape for her job and was toned, she still had a dainty figure that didn’t fit her personality. He let his eyes peruse down her bare legs to her flat ankle boots.

“Aren’t you going to be cold without any type of…panty hose or leggings?” Not that he really cared. She had a pair of muscular, sexy legs that he wouldn’t mind being lost in between.

“I tend to get hot while traveling in the car. I have a throw blanket in my tote bag, and your Range does have heat, right?” she asked sarcastically.

He closed the gap between them. “Yes, or you can throw them across my lap.”

She twisted her lips into a frustrated smile. “I’ll pass. You just concentrate on the road, Counselor.”

Moments later they were on the interstate headed toward Tennessee. He tried to keep focused on the road but kept glancing in her direction. He wasn’t sure if he should make small talk or not. She seemed content reading a magazine and bopping her head to the music that streamed through the speakers.

“So does your family know you’re going to Vegas?” he asked.

“Yep. My mom had a panic attack, and my dad said have fun and to split my winnings with him,” she answered. “Braxton didn’t question me, but my other half suggested I go somewhere else. She has never fully understood why I love motorcycles.”

“Hmm, and why do you love motorcycles?”

“Just the sheer excitement and exhilaration to be in total control of the sleek, sexy machine. It’s almost like great sex but better and without a sweaty man underneath me.”

“Better? I don’t know about that. Maybe you’ve been with the wrong men.” He paused and momentarily glimpsed in her direction. “So you like being in control…and on top?” He tried to contain the wide smile, but it was no use. The visual he conjured up of her riding him hard while he tightly grasped her fine bottom sent his mind and his foot on the pedal in overdrive.

“You wanna slow down?” She pointed to the speedometer. He was going eighty-five.

“Oh. Sorry, my mind was somewhere else,” he said, slowing down to a few miles over the speed limit.

“Yeah, like in the gutter. I was talking about riding a motorcycle, not a man.”

“Well, I can see how the two can be similar. For me, I love the force and the powerful engine underneath. I love the roar and the exquisite sexy hum when it’s idle. But then you speed up again until you finally reach your destination… The true destination for me is the aftermath and thrill of being in control and becoming one with the ride. Sometimes bumpy, sometimes smooth but overall quite satisfying.”

Out of the corner of his eye, he saw her cross and uncross her legs as a pursed smirk formed, and her cheeks turned a rosy pink.

“Is that similar to your experiences, Syd?”

“Um…it just depends on my mood.” She ran her fingers through her hair. “Sometimes if I’m stressed, I ride really, really fast…you know. To get out all of my frustrations and pent-up energy. Scream at the top of my lungs along with the revved up engine. Then there are times I just want to be lazy and relax. Let the motorcycle drive and guide me and afterward float back down from pure bliss.”

It took every fiber in his being not to pull over and snatch her on top of him just to see how fast and passionate she could really ride and drive him, with him in control guiding her how he wanted. How he needed.

She pushed her shades up on her head, and he saw her eyes for the first time since their trip had begun. They’d turned dark cinnamon with a sparkle of fire like always, except this time she wasn’t arguing with him, which was what usually provoked her heat-filled eyes. He stroked his goatee. How had he missed it this entire time? She wasn’t angry with him. She was turned on by him.

“Well, maybe one day we’ll go riding together,” he suggested, his voice laced with sex.
