Welcome to the Bliss Kiss and Tell Booth where you will get to meet the heroes from our Bliss books and get a taste of what kissing them is like.
Today we are welcoming Nate Walk from the novella An Officer and a Rebel by Cindi Madsen. It can be found in the Stranded with a Hero anthology.
Name: Nate Walsh
Eyes: Hazel eyes
Hometown: Marion, North Carolina
Profession: Cop but also help my parents out with the farm on the side
Special Skills: Search and rescue, including rescuing the former town rebel from her wrecked car 🙂
Biggest Regret: That I was away when my dad injured himself on the farm
Darkest Secret: Back in high school, I was attracted to my brother’s girlfriend, even though I knew I shouldn’t be. And now that our paths have met again, I’m fighting the attraction once more.
Favorite dessert/food: Chocolate chip cookies made my Kelsey
One thing no one knows or would guess about you: My funny side. It’s a side of myself I don’t usually show most people.
Thanks so much for joining us Nate!
Check out Cindi Madsen’s inspiration for Nate:
And take a peek at their first kiss…
Kelsey reached out and took his hand. She wasn’t sure why she did it, just that she wanted him to know that maybe she didn’t see him for who he was all those years ago, but she saw him now.
His fingers curled around hers. His eyes stayed forward, glued to the bare white wall opposite them. “You know, I thought about looking you up when I was in Charlotte.”
He sighed. “It would’ve been weird. And deep down I knew I shouldn’t, kind of like I know I shouldn’t kiss you right now.”
Kelsey’s breath lodged in her throat. She felt every inch between them, every place their skin was touching and wasn’t. He glanced down at her, his gaze burning in the most delicious way. She’d never given much of a damn about rules, and she definitely didn’t give one now. Act now, deal later.
Nate swept her hair aside, curled his hand behind her neck, and lowered his mouth to hers. He started slow and steady, much the way she expected him to. But then his hands gripped her hips and the next thing she knew she was seated on the counter. He stroked her tongue with his and heat licked at her core. Kelsey wrapped her legs around his waist, pulling their bodies closer.
He groaned into her mouth and his fingers slid under her shirt and dug into her skin.

Getting snowed in never felt so good as boundaries are crossed, opposites attract, and friends discovering more promise a Christmas no one will ever forget.
Loving Mindy by Karen Erickson
Mindy can’t believe she’s stuck with her ex–best friend—and the man whose heart she broke years ago—for the holidays, though the tension between them is more than enough to keep them warm. Josh Powers never forgot Mindy, but he can’t risk his heart a second time.
White-Hot Holiday by Coleen Kwan
Naomi’s sworn off men like Aaron—rich, cocky, and dismissive of holiday traditions. Aaron decided to spend Christmas in sunny Australia to avoid snowy New York, not to fall for the woman his best friend warned him away from. But when a volcano grounds him, Aaron and Naomi’s relationship becomes eruptive.
An Officer and a Rebel by Cindi Madsen
The last person police officer Nate Walsh expected to discover in a snowstorm is his brother’s ex and former town rebel, Kelsey Cooper. She’s his complete opposite and totally off-limits, but as they wait out the storm together, all he can think is how he wishes she’d stay forever.
Saving the Sheriff by Roxanne Snopek
Frankie Sylva was determined to free the reindeer cruelly held for a holiday roadshow, even if it meant risking her own life. Deputy Sheriff Red LeClair set out to save a stranger in a snowstorm, never expecting he’d be the one to be rescued.
