New Excerpt For More Than Words!

Hello, everyone! I’m happy to tell you that I signed the contract for Book #3 Made For Me (Keith and Sabrina’s Story.) It’s in its first round of editing right now! The projected release date is September 28. More info on that very soon. 🙂

In the meantime, I have another little sample of More Than Words, (Ben and Tracy’s story.) Readers are giving it wonderful reviews! They say it is the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. After nibbling on this excerpt, scroll down for a longer FREE sample of my newest romance. I have to say, I totally book boyfriend crushed on Ben in this one. Something about the strong and silent ones. Since Fall For You, Book #1, Ben has decided that actions speak louder than words when it comes to getting Tracy’s attention…

*****

She smelled the alluring scent of Ben’s aftershave before realizing he was right behind her. Tracy closed her eyes and breathed it in. It was subtle yet spicy and undeniably sexy. He placed his hands on the shelf over her head and whispered in her ear. “I told you to ask for help.”

Help! Who needs help? Being surrounded by Ben was totally working for her. Oh. Help reaching the bags. Tracy dropped to her feet at the sound of his voice. She turned around to face him and was essentially caged in by his body.

He leaned in until the tip of his royal blue tie touched the front of her T-shirt. She had no idea why she was staring at his tie except that it was coming closer until everything else was blurred. Ben stopped moving when barely an inch separated them.

Tracy tilted her head back and her breath caught when she saw the look on his face. Ben stared at her like a starving man offered his favorite meal. Somewhere in the back of her mind, a crazy part of her was thinking about how the blue in his tie brought out the beautiful sky-blue shade of his eyes. The rest of her was trying to remember how to suck air into her lungs.

Come on Trace, breathe!

Just when she thought he was going in for a kiss, he nuzzled his nose against her throat and softly inhaled.

Lucid thought fled the scene. Yep, there went her breath with it.

“You always smell like peaches.” The vibrations from his voice rumbled against her skin.

Peaches? What the hell are peaches?

“What?” she squeaked out in a breathy exhale.

Right as she asked the question……
