Good morning! It’s a rainy and dreary Monday in NJ today, so I thought I’d attempt to brighten your day by posting a snippet of my second manuscript, Love’s Second Chance. This book finaled in the Write Stuff Contest, and while this snippet isn’t part of the entry, I think it shows some fun sexual tension between my hero and heroine. Hope you enjoy!
Excerpt from “Love’s Second Chance”
Before Edward could follow her father into the main restaurant area, Kate put a hand on his forearm.
“Are you sure you’re okay with this?”
“With helping you?”
“Yes. I don’t want you to read more into it than it is. I haven’t changed my mind about getting involved with you.”
He studied her face before lingering on her lips. Kate felt her nipples contract. He took a step closer to her and leaned down. For a moment she thought he was going to kiss her, and dammit if she didn’t want him to.
“I believe you’ve made your position crystal clear, luv. I can’t force you to feel an attraction you obviously don’t.” His gaze moved down to her breasts, which, despite her sweater, surely displayed her aroused state. With a crooked grin and a wink, he stepped aside and left her alone in the entranceway.
Kate blew out the breath she’d been holding. Damn if this wasn’t going to be a challenge.
