Hey Readers, This book is awesome. I’m betting you’ll love it as much as I do, and, right now, it’s only 99 cents! Here’s its back cover blurb.
Doesn’t the blurb sound exciting? Here’s an excerpt to check out the author’s voice.
“I have an even better idea.” Ian lowered his voice into a honeyed drawl and his attention again dropped to her lips and stayed there. “We could forgo all bets and mistletoe. No one else is around. You can kiss me now for thirty seconds, a minute, but if you want it to go on longer, we’ll have to retire to your office and shut the door.” His mouth curled into a half-smile. “I promise I won’t tell.”
Gia gasped and lifted a hand to her throat, only half-pretending. “Are you propositioning me, Mr. O’Connor? I’m shocked, not to mention appalled, that you’d go to such sordid lengths to win a bet.”
He eased closer and his heated gaze drifted over her face and along her neck, as if he couldn’t decide where he wanted to start nibbling first. “You have no idea what lengths I’ll go to for you, Ms. Hellman.”
Her breath caught and it had nothing to do with pretending. Her blood raced faster, suddenly too hot, and a tingling invaded her lips, as if he’d already kissed her, hard and hungry, and left her wanting more. Holy crap, the man was a menace. And she couldn’t stop looking at his mouth, couldn’t stop wondering if he could truly deliver on all the decadent, delicious promises in his darkened eyes.
Probably. But she wasn’t willing to lose the bet to find out.
Subtly, as if drawn against her will, she leaned nearer, keeping her attention on his mouth. Even with her four-inch heels, she had to lift her chin to bring her lips closer to his. Gia made her voice soft and sultry. “Mistletoe or not, I won’t be kissing you. Not today, tomorrow or any time on Saturday.” She patted his cheek. “Get used to losing.”
He captured her wrist before she could withdraw her hand, keeping her gently captive. His eyes were blue fire. “I never lose.”
