After Hours


A dangerous infatuation with a rough and ready man…

Erin Coffey has been a nurse for years, but nothing’s prepared her for the physical and emotional demands of her new position. Needing to move closer to her dysfunctional family, she takes a dangerous job at Larkhaven Psychiatric Hospital, where she quickly learns that she needs protection—and she meets the strong, over-confident coworker who’s more than willing to provide it.

Kelly Robak is the type of guy that Erin has sworn she’d never get involved with. She’s seen firsthand, via her mess of a sister, what chaos guys like him can bring into a woman’s life. But she finds herself drawn to him anyway, even when he shows up at her door, not eager to take no for an answer.

What Erin finds even more shocking than Kelly’s indecent proposal is how much she enjoys submitting to his every command. But he can’t play the tough guy indefinitely. If they want to have more than just an affair, both will have to open up and reveal what they truly need.

"Intense, funny, and perfectly dirty."

"The sweet, smoking hot, standout erotic romance you’ve been craving."
New York Times bestselling author Beth Kery

"Cara McKenna writes real romance. Rough around the edges and anything but easy, the relationship between the hero and heroine is something they have to work for, and is all the more rewarding for it."
—Heroes & Heartbreakers

"Ms. McKenna’s writing is what really sucked me into this book. She has a way with words and phrases that make me laugh or think or sigh or…well you get the point. She has a way with phrases, words and paragraphs that make me feel. This story was about two average people but I was completely drawn into their HEA."
—Fiction Vixen

"It’s a well done, real life, gritty erotic romance with a bossy, bossy hero and a heroine who can fight right back. Well done."
—Smexy Books

"Erin and Kelly's romance is quite erotic… Their love story unfolds at a wonderful pace, and I highly recommend this one."
USA Today Books

"I am a finicky erotic romance reader. I dislike when characters start porntalking, when there is endless discussion of who is what for whom (I'm hard for you, you're wet for me, she's humid for the mailman). I often find the amplified sex scenes…to be ill fitting with the rest of the story. So it is a huge joy for me to find exceptionally evocative writing and an exploration of sex and intimacy so well written that it all fits together."
