Dance With Destiny
by Kathleen Ann Gallagher

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Career-minded journalist, Savannah Mason aspires to take the anchor seat at the New York City news station where she works. But her father has other plans. He insists his daughter study medicine so she can take over his surgical practice. Why can’t he understand being a newscaster is all she’s ever wanted?

When cardiac surgeon Dr. Rob Sinclair lands on the New York Times Bestsellers List, his agent tells him he needs a promo spot for his upcoming book release. Suddenly, what little time he had for his two children dwindles even more. He swears he can do it all, promising himself he’ll find a way to give his kids the attention they need.

When fate selects Savannah to conduct the prime-time interview with the renowned surgeon, sparks fly. Drawn to the hot doctor, she embarks on a path toward love with a man who seems all wrong for her. And though she questions every step they take, their relationship leads her to blazing passion, honesty, and forgiveness.

However, before she can fully accept his love, she must face the unresolved issues in her life as well as confess a secret from her past that she fears he’ll never accept. Will Savannah and Rob’s connection be strong enough to heal the scars of their past and grant them another chance at love?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now for an Excerpt:

In front of the camera, her professionalism broke through. The energy encircled the studio with a dynamic force. Bright lights hit the stage. The director signaled when they went on air. All eyes fell upon them. You could hear a pin drop, as the saying goes. Rob sat next to her and answered her questions in a gracious manner and gave an honest interview. Applause filled the studio, and the entire staff gathered to show their appreciation for a job well done.

Rob’s intense stare told her he wanted more, but she vowed not to think about their relationship. Her goal was to give the audience the scoop on the popular doctor and best-selling author.
He stood, and the staff circled around them. Savannah got up and joined him, her face moist from the heat of the lights. A stage hand approached and handed her a few tissues. “Thanks for reading my mind.”

“No problem, Ms. Mason.” He scooted off the set.

Tom made a beeline to greet them. “Congratulations, Savannah. Great job!” He turned to Rob.

“Thank you for an interesting piece and informative interview.” He shook Rob’s hand.
Savannah just wanted to get into her pajamas and catch up on some sleep. Though pleased about the way the show had turned out, she’d become exhausted, the past few weeks having taken a toll. She hoped Rob would understand.

Her wish to ease away from the excitement almost came to fruition, until he knocked on the dressing room door. He stood in the doorway, oozing with sex appeal, and gave her a long intoxicating stare. Temptation grabbed hold of her.

“Come in.” She opened the door all the way.

He stepped inside. She had to fight the urge to wrap her arms around him and smother him with kisses. Being close to him in her private little domain wasn’t easy.

“Savannah, I’d like a word with you.”

“Sure, is there a problem?” The last thing she wanted to do was hurt him.

“First of all, I want to thank you for a brilliant interview.”

“Thank you for the opportunity to do a prime-time spot. It did turn out well.” She moved to a tiny red love seat by the window. Rob joined her.

He kept his tone low as he took hold of her hands, his gentle touch tantalized her, and she began to quiver. “I hope you don’t mind, but I took the liberty to make reservations at a French bistro.” He rubbed his thumb gently around her wrist and trailed it up her arm. “It’s nearby, so please say you’ll accept my invitation.” The longing in his eyes reached deep inside her heart as if to summon her.

A tingling sensation started in her cheeks, traveled down her neck, and shot across her chest. Her breathing sped up. Savannah was torn between spending a night out with the man she desired more than anyone she’d ever met and honoring the promise she’d made to cool things off. Her better judgment told her to run, yet the burning desire to feel his skin against her body told her something completely different.

“I suppose, since you already reserved a table.”

He grinned. “You won’t regret it.”

Excerpt from On The Line by Sonni de Soto:

If he wanted to call her, he could call her.
He didn’t have to wait for her.
Decisively, he reached for his phone and began to dial.
She answered on the first ring. “Twenty minutes past nine.” Danielle tsked. “I always wondered how long it would take for you to call me.” Even over the phone, he could practically hear her shrug. “Twenty minutes sounds about right.”
“So this was a test?” He raised an eyebrow, not sure he liked the idea of that.
“Not a test, per se.” Her throaty voice was a soothing purr that, despite his efforts, did calm his irritation. Which was kind of irritating in and of itself. “More of an experiment. To shake things up a bit.”
“Shake things up how?” He harrumphed back against his headboard.
“We’re in a rut, Christopher.” She sighed with an audible shake of her head. “We’ve got to Columbus our way out of this.”
A rut? They were in a rut? Chris frowned and adjusted his glasses. He supposed that, sure, they’d both been a little tired lately. A little overworked and stressed. But a rut? “How are we supposed to do that?”
“Close your eyes,” she urged into the phone.
He huffed a bit, pouting, but did as she asked. It was, after all, a simple request. “Okay.”
“Imagine us,” her voice whispered in his ear. “Imagine us in your room. On your bed.”
Chris let out a sigh and tried. His mind focused, picturing her painted and so-mobile mouth forming her words. He thought about her tongue, slick and sly, as it slid across those lips, leaving a sheen in its wake. Chris let his mind remember the taste of her kiss, an utterly illogical mix of heated want and cool mint.
He imagined the familiar flush that always swept over her cheeks right before he took her mouth, that visible sign of her excitement that never failed to fuel his own. He knew that a blush like that could travel down her neck, her shoulder, her spine in a tickled shiver with the simplest touch.
And then there, in his room, on his bed, in his mind, like magic, she was laid seductive and stretched-out before him. He imagined the dark fall of curls that clouded around her face and shoulders, framing bared, bronzed skin perfectly.
His hands itched to grab the curves of her body. The swell of her sweeping hips. The pointed tips of her delectable breasts. The length of her long legs. The soft spread of sun-ripened skin, that always held the sweet scent of citrus, over the generous lushness of her body.
He could hear his own breath rasp as his mind transported her from her dorm room to the foot of his bed.
“Good,” he heard her coo in his ear. “Now that you have me there, whatever will you do with me?” Her mockingly na├»ve tone left him feeling provoked and promised.

THE LAWMAN'S APACHE MOON
by Debra Holt

~~~~~~~~~~~~~


“No more detours!” That was the promise Angelina Lord made to herself when she accepted a ride from a wedding in Texas, with the best man to her destination in Santa Fe, New Mexico. What could possibly go wrong?

Angelina is focused on one thing–opening a fashion boutique in Santa Fe. What she really doesn’t need is one full-of-himself lawman with his aggravating air of superiority and soul-searing eyes…not to mention heart-stopping kisses…coming to her rescue. If she lets him get too close to the truth, he could bring down the wall she erected around her well-ordered life and her heart.

United States Marshal Jace Blackhawke holds family and traditions as the center of his life. He isn’t part of Angie’s world and she certainly isn’t part of his. Will their differences prove to be too insurmountable in the face of the truth that will not stay silent?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now for an Excerpt: 

“Nice morning.” He sent the words across to her, his eyes drawn in and owned by the pair of emerald green ones that danced and dazzled and demanded his attention. Cat eyes? Eyes that held a mysterious pull on his with their feline shape, brilliance, and shielded in a black nest of lashes where secrets could hide.

“If you say so. Bit cold… and flat.” The voice matched her… smooth and feline and flat-out intoxicating.

Damn. Was the air thinner here? His normal thinking was all out of whack. He made no reply just kept a stone-faced countenance while his mind tried to pry itself loose from whatever strange hold this newcomer exerted. The quarreling couple held no interest for him. With his eyes concealed behind a pair of aviator lenses, he felt his gaze drawn again to the woman.

Book Blast ~ Love on the Risky Side by Mariah Ankenman

Love on the Risky Side
by Mariah Ankenman

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Falsely accused of the murder of her best friend, Kayla Jenkins is on the run for her life. She ends up lost in dark, snowy woods off some backcountry road in the middle of nowhere. Frightened and colder than she’s ever been in her life, she almost thinks she’s hallucinating when a warrior on a white steed saves her.

In all his years as the sheriff of Peak Town, Colorado, Jake Ryder has never come across a half-frozen woman alone in the woods. She’s terrified…and lying to him, yet something about her calls to him on a primal level.

Even with her trust of law enforcement lower than the harsh temperature, Kayla finds it difficult to keep her secrets hidden from the kind and far too handsome sheriff. But as her faith in Ryder grows, she not only risks the real murderer finding her, but losing the one thing she has searched for her whole life and only just found…love.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now for an Excerpt: 

She had to solve this problem on her own. “It’s not safe.”

“I’m the sheriff of this town. It’s my job to handle dangerous situations.”

Still pinned against his chest, she felt the hard edges of his muscles, such a contrast to his comforting hold. The strong beat of his heart beating against her back settled her own into a synchronized rhythm.

Her breath caught in her throat, but not from fear this time. “But I’m not a part of this town. You have no obligation to help me. You don’t even know me.”

Silence.

Just when she thought she’d gotten through to him, that he was going to let her leave, his voice came as a soft, sensual caress. Dark, like chocolate, and just as tempting.

“I know it’s crazy, but there’s a part of me that feels like I’ve known you forever. Like I’ve been waiting for you. There’s something between us, don’t deny it. I know you feel it, too.”

She sucked in a sharp breath. Yes, she did feel it. She hadn’t realized he did. It was crazy and unexpected, but it was there. A connection apparently neither could deny. It terrified her even as it thrilled her. Unfortunately, this whole thing made her situation that much harder.
