Sunday Snippet

May 25, 2014

Here is a little taste from next release from Harper Impulse, HER PERFECT LIPS. I’m still in the first round of edits, but I’m sure it will be out soon!

Stacy followed the group back out onto Bourbon Street, seriously considering her next move. Should I stay or should I go now? She let the chorus play out in her head and in that one millisecond pause, a drunken man wearing only jeans shorts and plastic beads lunged at her from the crowd. She sidestepped around him and almost collided with a woman exiting Pat O’Briens. The woman squealed and Stacy veered off the sidewalk into the street. A group of tourists swept her away, forcing her backward along with them. She fought against the wave of bodies, but it was a losing battle. And then, out of nowhere, a hand grabbed her arm, a lifeline in the storm.

The tourists continued on their journey, but Stacy was held in place, firmly anchored by that strong grip. The hold on her arm was a little too familiar for a stranger and she wasn’t sure if she wanted to thank or berate her rescuer. She turned, and her breath caught when she recognized her savior. “Hello, Ten.”

“Hey, Stacy.”

He grinned and every single part of her tingled.

    Great snippet, looking forward to the rest. Awesome getting to hang with you in NOLA, and I’m so glad I now now what Bourbon Street and Pat O’Brien’s look like! (Oh, yeah. And that hunky photo ain’t half bad.)
