A Wild Mustang Security Firm Prequel
by Delta James Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance
He loves the chase...
John Hampton is a US Marshal on the way home from an extended fugitive retrieval assignment. When he stops in at his favorite steakhouse he finds that what he wants most ... isn't on the menu.
Mandy Adams wasn't looking for love, least of all at work. She's not only surprised at John's attention but also her quickly developing feelings. John is on the fast-track to claiming Mandy as his own, but Mandy balks at the bossy marshal and flees when her feelings for him threaten to overwhelm her.
Apparently, she isn't aware that a marshal's tenacity in running down a target isn't limited only to fugitives, but to naughty females as well. He soon has both sets of her cheeks blushing from his attention.
But when the chase is over, will Mandy still be able to resist his brand of courtship?

“So, Iz,” said Mac, “what do you know about the redhead who has John’s attention?”
“That’s Mandy Adams.” She smiled. “She works for Willa Reynolds. You know, the gal who does the gourmet packing trips. I’m surprised Willa isn’t with her. The two of them usually take great enjoyment out of pool sharking any unsuspecting assholes, like Chaz there. I think he earned Mandy’s ire, treating the wait staff so poorly. Willa’s good with a stick, but Mandy’s better. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her miss a shot unless she intended to.”
“What’s she drinking?” asked John.
“Killian’s is her usual drink of choice.”
“If she likes her steak rare, I could be in love,” he said with a grin.
“Then you’re out of luck,” said Izzy. “She likes her steaks medium with no red.” Izzy left them to take Mandy the proffered drink.
“Not to sound like a completely inappropriate jerk,” John said, lowering his voice, “but for an ass like that, I could live with overcooked meat.”
John grinned at Mac as his buddy tried desperately not to spit his beer across the table. It wasn’t the kind of comment John normally made about a woman, but he was beginning to think that Mandy might be something special.

With the horses settled in the canyon, Willa headed home, where Gus, her ranch foreman and long-time friend, greeted her.
“The marshal know you’ve been out stealing horses again?” he asked, nodding toward the house.
“I’m not stealing them, Gus. I’m helping them find their way to safety, and, no, I didn’t want to wake him.”
The grizzled cowboy shook his head. “In other words, you snuck out before dawn and are hoping you can slip back into his bed before he even knows you were gone.”
“That’s not it at all,” she said, handing him Gator’s lead rope. “Would you mind taking care of him?” She headed toward the cabin. “And it’s my bed he’s sleeping in.”
“Yeah, you keep telling yourself that, missy. At some point, that marshal of yours is going to put the hammer down on you and your nonsense.”
Willa eased into the house, hoping she could slip back into bed with Mac none the wiser. So far, so good, she thought as she removed her clothes and crawled in to lie beside him. Mac rolled up against her back, his arm draping her waist.
“Where the hell have you been?” he growled as his arm tightened like a vice.

Croft was trying to remind himself the woman was a paying client, probably worried about her brother, and clearly out of her league. He was just turning away from the log to apologize when he realized she had closed the distance between them—realized it as her open palm struck him across the face. Damn, the girl had some serious strength in her arm.
“You brat!” he snarled, losing sight of all the things he’d just told himself and giving in to the urge to give this East Coast princess the spanking she so obviously needed.
Grabbing her by the arm, he put his foot on the log and jerked her across his raised thigh. Without giving her time to react, he brought his hand down hard on the denim-clad rump. A very satisfying gasp—part outrage and part pain—escaped her mouth. A small part of his brain told him he needed to stop, but that part wasn’t in control. He swatted her ass again, and she yelped. That felt and sounded even better.

“Coward,” he heard a feminine voice call with a hint of amusement.
Turning towards the sound, he found himself him looking at Zara Hughes. He’d recognize her anywhere. She was tall, with cascading dark brown hair, luminous blue eyes and delicate features. Those eyes were laughing … at him.
“What did you call me?” he growled trying to banish the image before him.
“You heard me … I called you a coward. Not that I think you are afraid of danger or are anything less than honorable, but you’re still afraid.”
“Of what? You?” It was his turn to be amused.
“Not necessarily, but of a woman like me. You tell yourself you want some nice quiet girl who will do as you tell her, spread her legs whenever you want, give blowjobs on demand and wait at home for the great warrior to return.”
“What if I do?”
Zara laughed. “You’d be bored out of your mind within a month.”
Wild Mustang Security Firm Book 4 by Delta James & Maren Smith

“Christian!” she cried. Her hands grasped the bedclothes as she came, her pussy pulsing all along his length as he increased his thrusts.
Surging forward, he drew her body up, so she was pressed against him, her back to his front. He squeezed her breasts with one hand, pinching her nipples as the other kept her trapped against his torso, a slave to his orgasm. Holding her tight, he pumped his cum into her as she came again. He nuzzled her neck and nipped her ear.
Sighing, she leaned back against him, relaxed and replete.
“I hate to remind you, but the season opens today, and we have a full house—paid guests as well as the Wild Mustang bunch.”
Christian groaned. Bad enough, his sister and Croft would be here, but Zara and Avery would be as well, and they were a terrible influence on Aliya. He grinned—that wasn’t necessarily the worst thing. Spanking Aliya always ignited her libido.

Fortunate enough to live with my Daddy Dom, I am a Little, coffee fanatic, former long-term administrator at two of my local BDSM dungeons, resident of the wilds of freakin' Kansas (still don't know how I ended up here) and submissive to the love of my life. An International and USA Bestselling Author, I have penned more than 160 novels, novellas and short stories, and am the author of the Masters of the Castle series.
I also write under the names of Denise Hall and Darla Phelps.
Can you, for those who don't know you already, tell something about yourself and how you became an author?
Writing, as a career, came late to me. I had left the Pacific Northwest (where I spent most of my life) and moved to North Carolina to break a rut that I seemed to be in. One night I was sitting in my living room and realized that somewhere along the way I had lost the girl whose motto had always been “Fortune Favors The Bold.” More than that, I wanted her back.
That night, I made a decision that changed the course of my life… no more fear based decisions. That doesn’t mean that I’m reckless or that I sometimes don’t opt to do something. I just check in with myself to ensure that I’m making the decision based on something other than fear.
That decision led to my asking myself if there was something I’d rather be doing with my life than working as a Business Office Manager. There was… I wanted to be a published author. That was late in 2017. My first book was published, under a different pen name, in January 2018. In April 2019, I was able to quit my day job to write full time,
What is something unique/quirky about you?
I once sailed from Seattle, Washington to Honolulu, Hawaii with a friend who had only owned a boat for a year. I had never sailed in deep water.
If you knew you'd die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?
I would make sure that everything in my life was in order for those that remained. I would then spend the rest of my time with my “family”—good friends and my dogs (basset hounds). If I had acquired a horse by then, I would go for a long trail ride in order to clear my mind and prepare for whatever is to come.
What are you passionate about these days?
Absolutely everything! I am passionate about what I do for a living and how I live my life. I have been incredibly blessed to be able to do what I love for a living and touch others in a way that sometimes is so profound that I find myself humbled.
What do you do to unwind and relax?
Ride horses—either trail ride or try to jog trot the perfect circle! I also spend time with close friends and my beloved basset hounds who make me laugh out loud at least once each day.
Describe yourself in 5 words or less!
Passionate, Intelligent, Kind, Author, Equestrian
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
January 29, 2018 – the day the my first book appeared on Amazon. I literally whooped in excitement—scared the heck out of bassets!
What inspired you to write this book?
I had written Always Daddy’s Girl with Maren Smith. We were just finishing up the final draft when we each felt that Reid’s story needed to be told. As often happens with Maren, we had the same idea for a general plot… and the rest, as they say, is history.
What can we expect from you in the future? Bulldog, the next in the Mercenary Masters series, just came out and will be followed, in order by, Spirit Bear, a bear-shifter story, Top Dog, the next in the Mercenary Masters series, and then the expansion of the novella, Best Seller into a full-blown novel. Just this morning, I started on another bear-shifter story—I find the heroes of those tales very growly! And I have two wolf-shifter series planned, one a spin-off from the Wayward Mates series set in the wine country along the Pacific Coast and one a cowboy/wolf shifter story.
Do you have any “side stories” about the characters?
I tend to write novellas for my newsletter subscribers about secondary characters in books.
How did you come up with the concept and characters for the book?
The “hero” of Reid was a character who made his first appearance in Croft as Finn’s brother. His story and character kept evolving until it needed to be told.
Who designed your book covers?
I have worked with four amazing cover artists—Korey Mae Johnson who does all of my Stormy Night Publications as well as Allysa Hart, Madden Kole and Betty Shreffler who design my indie-published books.
Anything specific you want to tell your readers?
As trite as it may sound, I hope they know how very much I appreciate them taking my characters to heart and inviting me into their lives.
How did you come up with name of this book?
The other books in the series were all the names of the heroes (except for Always Daddy’s Girl) so it seemed obvious to call it Reid.
Are your characters based off real people or did they all come entirely from your imagination?
In my opinion, any writer who tells you that characters are made up entirely from their imagination is lying to you, themselves or both. Writers are influenced every day by the people and events they encounter. It isn’t always conscious or intentional, but it is there.
Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reins of the story?
I absolutely have no control. Sometimes I think I do, but my characters slap me down and make sure I understand it is their story and will be told their way.
Fun Facts/Behind the Scenes/Did You Know?'-type tidbits about the author, the book or the writing process of the book.
I work best when I have found a picture of my hero to serve as inspiration. I keep his image on a secondary monitor
I try to set my books in real places that people can go and see and touch and get their hands on
Do the characters all come to you at the same time or do some of them come to you as you write?
A little of both. I generally know the main characters, but not always the secondary ones. The most annoying part is when I’m more than half way through a book and one of them tells me, “Oh by the way”… and its something vital to the story that necessitates my going back through the story to re-vamp it and thread that information throughout.
What kind of research do you do before you begin writing a book?
I generally write from my own experiences, but if not, I find readers in my private Facebook grou, Delta’s Wayward Pack, and use them to funnel answers to questions and double check my facts.
Do you prefer to write in silence or with noise? Why?
Depends on the book, the scene and how I am feeling. I think I am at my most productive when I have Pandora playing.
Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?
Even though I am a “pantser” versus a “plotter,” I write one book at a time from beginning to end.
Pen or type writer or computer?
Computer. I can’t stand to write on anything else.
Advice they would give new authors?
Write! Every single day! Pick an amount of time that you will dedicate to writing – not being on social media, not emailing friends, not working on editing your book, but working on your next novel. If you want a career as an author, treat it like it’s a business! Plan to spend money honing your craft, marketing your book, getting a good editor and a good cover designer. If you hire someone to do your marketing, make sure they understand what it is you write and that they are good at their job—then get out of their way and let them do it!
What makes a good story?
Well-developed characters, a good story to tell and lots of steamy sex and discipline!
What is your writing Kryptonite?
A beautiful autumn day, a gorgeous horse and a trail that needs exploring… gets me every time!
Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?
I try to put my own unique spin on what my readers want to read.
How long on average does it take you to write a book?
The first draft (which goes to my publisher) takes about two to three weeks.
Do you believe in writer’s block?
No. I believe it is a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you get stuck, pull up your big girl panties, take a break and then get back to it! Harsh I know, but it this is your career/job/business, you have to treat it as such and sometimes you have to push through even when it seems impossible!
