Snippet Saturday – Author’s Choice


How about a little something from Hidden Heat, book 4 in the Hauberk Protection series?


Hidden Heat

“Things could get complicated.” He swept her bangs to the side. Instead of dropping his hand, he toyed with her earring, his fingers occasionally brushing the sensitive skin behind her ear. He might as well have been playing with her pussy from the way it pulsed with each touch.

“…almost too hot to touch”  from Romantic Times

“I told you. I’m not looking for a long-term relationship, if that’s what you’re concerned about.” His expression confirmed he doubted her assertion.

“Look, I’m serious,” she continued. “That’s one of the reasons why I moved to D.C. If I’d stayed in Minnesota, I would have died of boredom. Nothing exciting ever happened there. I don’t see myself as settling down anytime soon. So if you think I’m going to tie you down, I won’t.”

The doubt in his face didn’t recede. “What do you want, sunshine?”

“I want to explore sides of me I wouldn’t have had a chance to back in Minnesota. I’m tired of people thinking I’m nice, quiet Sandy. That I’m looking for the white picket fence and two point five kids. So if you picture a relationship of missionary position with the lights out, then I’m not your girl. I want to live my life on the edge. I want excitement. I don’t want to look back when I’m Mom’s age and regret anything. Is that too real for you?”

Hidden Heat, romantic suspense, Hauberk Protection series, erotic romanceHis smile returned, softening the sharp planes of his face. “Getting on your knees and blowing me shouldn’t rank very high on the excitement meter. You might want to try skydiving or running a marathon. Maybe running with the bulls in Pamplona.”

“I found this afternoon exciting.” Apparently he didn’t feel the same way. “As for skydiving and marathons, maybe one day I’d like to try skydiving, but running? That’s not something I’m into. But you, I could definitely get into you.” And she’d prefer he get into her too.
He dropped his hand with a sigh. “So you’re just looking for sex.”

“Not just sex, but yeah, that’ll be a start.”

Was that disappointment on his face? Weren’t all guys looking for the scenario she’d laid out for him?
