Thank you for taking a break from bargain shopping to stop by the Black Friday Blog Hop here on Ye Olde Blog of Gift Buying Delights. There are over 200 authors offering all kinds of goodies. I hope you’ll take the time and visit each one because every time you comment you will be entered to win some really awesome prizes.
I’m thankful for so many things this holiday season, but most of all I’m thankful to be able to share my debut romantic suspense novel, Rush, with readers. As a newly published author this is an amazing time in my life. I hope to never get over the humility and gratitude of sharing my stories with others. In that spirit here’s a short excerpt from Rush. I hope you enjoy it~~
As suddenly as Lucas had disappeared, he reappeared. “All clear.” He slipped something into his coat.
Mi gestured toward his jacket. “Are you carrying a gun?”
He closed the door, plunging them into near darkness. “Yeah.”
The dimness settled around them, but neither of them made an effort to find light. She should have been afraid or at the very least nervous. Instead she was intrigued, almost titillated. They were close enough to touch. Close enough that she could smell him, hear his breath and feel the heat that always seemed to be radiating off him. The buzz she’d gotten when she’d first seen him had settled into a quiet purr.
“Do you always carry a gun?” Her voice sounded throaty almost sensual.
He drifted closer without moving. “Yes.”
“Can I see it?”
The air seemed to snap between them, little sparks set off by whatever attraction they shared. She hadn’t had a lot of experience, but she knew chemistry when she felt it. And they definitely had it. She wished she could indulge, have something just for her. But she knew she shouldn’t. Before too long he’d do more than hint at wanting to know her secrets; he’d demand. She didn’t think he was the type of man who would allow the gray in which she lived her life. He was a strictly black or white kind of guy. But oh, how she wished she could reach out, bridging the space between them and bring him up hard against her.
“I don’t think that’s a good idea,” he whispered.
She wasn’t entirely sure he was talking only about his gun. That maybe he’d been thinking the same things she had and had come to the same conclusion.
“No, probably not.”
