Weekend Writing Warrior – 8/23/15
Here’s another excerpt from FLIP THIS LOVE – coming April 2016 from Kensington/Lyrical Press!
Planting a knee on the edge of the bed, he took her hand and drew it to his mouth. First, he kissed the back of it. Soft and polite, like the most courtly of gentlemen. Then, he lifted his gaze to meet hers and turned her hand over. There was nothing genteel or gentlemanly about the hot, open-mouth kiss he placed in her palm. The tip of his tongue traced her lifeline. She shivered when he scraped the base of her thumb with his teeth.
“I like surprising you,” he said, his voice gravelly as a back country road.
Her own came as breathy as a B-movie starlet’s, “I know you do.”
“I plan to keep doing it.”
This week my book, SPRING CHICKENS, goes on sale as part of the UNFORGETTABLE HEROES II boxed set for only $0.99!
Spring Chickens – You don’t have to be a spring chicken to fall in love.
Bram Hatchett thought he buried his heart with his wife, but when a big city beauty blows into town to dispose of the family farm, she captures everyone’s attention. Particularly his.
Lynne Prescott’s former marriage was marked by her husband’s infidelities and doomed by the secrets and lies he left in his wake. Disillusioned and adrift, she seeks refuge in the simplicity of small-town life.
There are few secrets in Heartsfield, Arkansas, but when a few loose boards on a rickety old porch bring them together, not even the combined forces of nosy neighbors, disapproving children and a disturbing decrease in the poultry population can stymie the attraction between the handsome widower and the intriguing divorcee.
But Lynne and Bram are both old enough to know there are no guarantees in life.
Can they set the fears of their pasts aside and learn to trust their hearts just one more time?
