THAT's YAMORE Blogfest
Thanks Oasis for YA for hosting this That's YAmore Blogfest since I'm a hopeless romantic I just had to share mine :-D
This is a tease from BANDITS which releases, June 1st, 2011.
It's the first ever tidbit of romance that I've shared with anyone outside of my beta readers and editors for the book. I really hope you enjoy it.
If you want to review the ARC just send me a note in the comment with your email address. Otherwise, just enjoy :-D
He got to the door and glanced back at her over his shoulder. His heart caught in his chest while he spied Jade, who stood there with her eyes closed. Her fingers were pressed against her eyelids in an attempt to stop her tears. She was trembling slightly as whimper caught in her throat. Aww hell! It’s just one kiss, for her birthday. I can give her that. Swallowing away his apprehensions, he turned around quietly and walked toward her.
She didn’t move, didn’t notice that he hadn’t left. Standing directly in front of her, he took her hands from her eyes. He held them firmly to stop her from covering her face again. Slowly, she opened her eyes and frowned. Her long dark lashes held the moisture of her tears.
“I’m sorry, Jade. You just, just… caught me by surprise.” He lowered his voice to a smooth, calming whisper. “I’ll give you this one kiss –as a birthday present. This has to be the only one... and it’s our secret, just between us,” he said and released her hands.
She leaned back against the wall. Looking up at him, she gulped slowly. She licked her lips and replied in a hoarse whisper, “Do it,” and closed her eyes.
