Psst! Guess what today is? It’s my birthday!
To celebrate, I thought I’d share 8 lines from one of my personal favorites in the Hot nights in St. Blaise series, book #7 Roman Candles:
His fingertips dug into her hips and she circled them in a move he could only call retaliation. Grinding his molars, he relaxed his grip. “Are you going to kiss me or what?”
“You said you were going to follow my lead,” she reminded him.
“I suck at following, but I’m an excellent beggar.” His body bowed as the plea rolled through him. “Please.”
“Oh, you are good,” she murmured.
Pediatrician Mario Debrizzio is a single woman’s dream come true. He’s successful and confident, owns a gorgeous old home that cries out for a family, and is as talented in the kitchen as he is in the bedroom.
But when he loses his cool on the job, Dr. Debrizzio finds himself front and center with SBRMC’s chief headshrinker. Dr. Sophie Bernard is more than pleasant to look at, but the last thing he wants is to let the woman who has already messed with his head go poking around in there.
No amount of distance can keep Dr. Sophie Bernard safe from the memory of the scorching kiss she and Mario shared at the SBRMC Christmas party. The man was hot as a firecracker and every bit as dangerous. She was also married at the time…technically.
Long after her divorce is final, Sophie fights the attraction. But when Mario holds a flame to her fuse, her fear and frustration explodes into a passion that burns up the hot summer night.
