Happy Sunday everyone! Today I’m taking the kiddos to the beach for a little sun and play in the sand before the work week kicks off again. I start a new story come Monday and my batteries are running low. Not a good combo so some down time sounds really nice. Before I lather on the sunscreen I wanted to leave everyone with some sweet treats. I hope you’re all having a beautiful weekend filled with friends, family and a fabulous book!
Though Valentines might be over, I don’t think we need a special day to take home a hot alpha shifter or a sexy Marine, right? Last week I released Hexing the Alpha, the first in a brand new werewolf romance series. As promised in my last post, I’m sharing an exclusive excerpt with all the readers here at 69 Shades.
Today is also the last day to pick up the second book in my Sexy Siesta series, Tequila Sunset, while it’s still only 99cents! It goes back to regular price tomorrow!
In other news, make sure to visit my author blog each Friday to get in on the weekly giveaway! Who doesn’t like a chance at extra book money! 😉
“Tell me you have it ready, Honor,” answered a nervous voice through the earpiece.
Honor’s heart swelled for the woman on the other end. She was so desperate for love she’d try anything. It’s why she’d agreed to help out with the love potion. If only her sisters would see it her way, she could have delivered and collected days ago.
Honor traced the soft edges of a napkin, her back to the crowd forming around the bar. “Hey, Marabelle. The potion is ready. When would you like to meet for delivery?”
“Right now if you can. I don’t want to waste another minute if you know what I mean.”
Honor rolled her eyes and smothered a chuckle at her client’s innuendo. She hoped the poor man on the other end of the spell could handle the lust-filled night Marabelle had in mind for them.
“The sooner the better. How about in an hour? My place? Yours? A la clandestine, I presume?” she added in a low whisper. Humans understood how her Council’s law worked, which helped to explain why the forbidden brew came with a hefty price tag.
Before she could respond, Honor’s magick shimmered the length of her spine and instinct stiffened her muscles. “Your place works fine. See you then, Marabelle.”
Snapping her phone closed, she whirled on her heel, expecting to find one of her sisters. Instead, chiseled muscles defined by outdoor labor and encased in black cotton came into view. She traced a path first down to see solid thighs covered in the sexiest fucking black jeans she’d ever seen on a man and up to find a gorgeous set of dark blue eyes staring down at her.
“Getting into trouble again?” he drawled, his rough baritone doing wicked things to her cool composure.
That was on the outside. On the inside two emotions warred for control. Fear of what he might have overheard with his heightened hearing. And nerve-searing, thigh-clenching lust.
Lust was winning by a mile.
He anchored his hands on two wooden chairs on either side of him and breathed in deeply then released on a long sigh. “Honor.”
Why did he have to say her name as if he’d just made love with her?
Jake—the werewolf shifter that starred in all her fantasies—stood so close she could reach out and touch any part of her fantasy she wished.
He must have sensed the turn her dirty mind had taken because his pupils dilated and the rims of his irises brightened with an otherworldly glow in a color she could only describe as a mixture of sapphire with shards of ruby. The contrast just as striking as the man.
