Read an excerpt from Searching For Always by Jennifer Probst


New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Jennifer Probst sparks a blissful mind-body connection as her “sexy, satisfying” (Kirkus Reviews) new series continues!

She’s an expert in helping others de-stress, but Arilyn Meadows is running on fumes. Along with her job counseling singles seeking soul mates at the Kinnections agency in Verily, New York, she’s a yoga teacher, animal shelter volunteer, anger management therapist, and helping hand to her beloved grandfather. No time to find Mr. Right—but after discovering her yogi boyfriend in a compromising asana, Arilyn would rather dog-sit for her honeymooning friend Kate than risk her heart on another downward dog. And when police officer Stone Petty—radiating masculinity and bad-boy attitude—is sent to her for mandatory lessons in cooling off when the job gets too hot, Arilyn vows to ignore his seductive glances and sexy grin. But there’s no halting their sizzling flirtation—a red-hot, high-speed chase that’s breaking all the limits.


Her step lightened and she turned the corner.

Then stopped cold.

Stone Petty sat on the curb outside the firehouse.

He held a Dr Pepper in one hand and a huge sandwich in the other. As he shoved the awful fried mess into his mouth, he barked into a cell phone propped between his ear and shoulder. Instead of backward, his hat now perched to the side like some sort of gangster. He alternated between bites and screaming.

“I don’t give a crap what the dickhead said! I clocked him going thirty miles over the speed limit and then the little shit called me names, practically challenging me to make that ticket stick. Who cares if he got a pretty-ass lawyer? I’m going to court, and I won’t be changing it to a faulty headlight no matter who his father is. You got it? Good. Nah, I’ll be there. Yeah, forced vacay is a bitch, you know? See ya, Sam.”

In horror, she watched as he gobbled the rest up, slurped some soda, and this time used a napkin to wipe his face. Her shadow fell over him. He looked up.

“Oh, hey. I’m on time. Just finishing lunch.”

Arilyn blinked. A hazy red fog swarmed her vision.

Breathe. She just needed to breathe. “I thought you wanted to change your fast-food habits?” she asked.

Her voice sounded high and pitched. Definitely not normal.

He squinted in the sunlight and unrolled himself from the curb. Stretching a bit, he studied her with those intense eyes that probed under her clothes and beyond. “I do,” he said. “I got a fish fillet. Eating Nemo instead of Elsie the Cow’s better, right?” He took a loud, obnoxious sip of soda. “Or do you have a problem with that, too?”
