♡ Secret Confessions: Down & Dusty ♡ Lucky ♡ Cate Ellink ♡

They say that no one has secrets in a small townthese women prove them wrong.

Eight brand-new stories from some of Australia's hottest writers in Australia's hottest genre. From the bar stools of the local pub to the wide open plains of the biggest stations in the world, these tales travel the dusty roads to the heart of Australia and the women who understand how to work hardand play even harder.
In the latest in the wildly successful Secret Confessions series from Escape Publishing, the women of Down & Dusty invite you into their livesand their bedrooms.

As the single female owner  of Milpinyani Springs only pub, Lucky has learned that her behaviour has to be above reproach. She works hard at home, and when she needs to play hard, she does sofar away from the prying eyes of her neighbours and friends. So when the hot new cop swaggers up to bar, she knows the rules: look, dont touch. But Dare doesnt know how to play her game, and hes about to show her that the only rules that count are the ones that you break.

Episode two: Lucky.

This crosses over with the first installment, Casey, but you do not have to have read it before hand - but why would you want to miss out/

Lucky and Dare... sigh.

Lucky is the heart of Mil Springs, and the last thing she wants, last thing she needs is any romantic entanglements in town.. especially with the new cop.

But the sexual attraction between Lucky and Dare is of...the...charts.  Boy, you can feel the sparks flying across the room!

While they are fighting it, the whole town can see what is playing out - small towns, nothing is sacred, believe me I live in one!

One thing though.... grrr, why does Dare keep calling Lucky "mate".  Don't know what it was but it irritated the crap out of me.  Not sure if it was male to female, or if it was because they were becoming romantically involved, but no, it needed to stop (this is probably just me!)

I adored this pair together, and wanted more!

Can't wait for the next episode.




Cate Ellink became intrigued by the erotic when her grandfather used to pass books to her father saying, Dont let the girls read page X. Although her mother and sisters never bothered to chase those pages, Cate always did. Invariably, her imagination was better than what she read.

While pursuing a career in science, Cate amused herself by writing about ordinary events and giving them an erotic twist. It
s taken more than a few years to bravely expose her mind to the public. While the events in her stories may have occurred, its highly likely that her imagination is far more exciting than the reality.

Cate lives near the beach in NSW,
Australia, with a long-suffering husband.
