As promised, here is a snippet of the upcoming book with a bonus! As a thankyou to all of you who follow my little blog, I thought I’d share a little more – mainly because you are all so awesome but also because I couldn’t decide definitely which snippet to post – it may or may not have anything to do with my Libran nature, lol. Truly, I’m decisive in most things but every now and again…….🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄. So – can’t decide? No problem. Post them both.! Besides, you guys have been so patient waiting for this book rewrite – truly amazing. Thankyou so so much.
So enjoy the sneak peaks and please drop me a line or two with your thoughts or even questions.
Oh!! And I have decided that in my next life, I’m coming back as Wonder Woman. What a great movie. 😍😍😍Loved it! 💖💖💖💖 Highly recommend it to everyone.
I caught the elevator back down to the lobby and casually strolled out, the watchman barely even noticing me. Obviously he was less concerned with who left the building than he was with who enters.
As I stepped out onto the street, I pulled my ball cap down lower, shading my eyes from the afternoon glare. It had taken less time that I anticipated so I began the long walk to Tanaka’s home determined to stay focused fully on my job and keep the delectable cop out of my mind.
So far so good.
Except for that moment earlier near the front door when I could have sworn I caught a faint trace of her aroma. It was fleeting and brief and it made me pause but was gone so quickly that I decided I was mistaken. Most likely it was simply my overly-fascinated hormones stuck on her.
Woman was a menace. Big time distraction.
But not now.
Now I was in the zone, working my case with efficiency and skill. And she was out of my head.
I ignored the internal smirk from the beast. He can just keep his opinions to himself.
From the shadowy pillar, I watched as she began walking, heading down past several rows of parked cars, civilian and police alike.
Deciding that it would be best to catch up before I called her rather than just yell out across the distance, I began following, knowing my longer strides would catch up to her easily.
In hindsight, I realised it probably wasn’t my greatest idea but in all honesty, I’d gotten so entranced in the hypnotic sway of her hips, the curves of her sexy butt making my palms itch, that I’d completely lost focus on anything else. I got too close to her, didn’t call her name – and she reacted like any woman alone should – up went her arm, her fist slamming into my face in a backwards punch followed immediately with an elbow straight into my gut, forcing my air out in a surprised grunt. By the time I got my wits about me and defended myself, she’d tried and missed stomping on my foot, my quick step backwards the only thing saving my toes. But then she twisted and turned, her booted foot kicking out towards my face in a sharp snap. I only just managed to throw my hands up to block her manoeuvre and prevent a massive smack into my jaw, calling out: “Hey, hey!!”
She pulled out of the kick and back onto her two feet, tossed her hair out of the way, eyes wide and shocked as she caught sight of my face.
By now his screaming was penetrating my primal brain – the word cure bashing repetitively at my synapses and I came to a halt, my head tilting in question. With effort, I focused my senses on his face, hunting for the lies, the deception but again…..there was none. Just fear and a trace of outrage.
Breathing heavily, I pulled and strained on the tethers, willing him to back off – a fine tremor scraping over taut muscles as he resisted for a moment, snarling angrily before receding grudgingly.
With a painful shudder I reverted to full human, gulping in much needed air to calm my racing system, he and I in a frozen stand-off for a long moment, wary and cautious of the other.
Then out of the blue, he exploded angrily: “Godammit!! I’d be so freaking offended at this if you didn’t have scrambled brains at the moment! Bloody crap, look at my shirt!” And he pulled his tee shirt away from his skin, the wet splashes staining amber on the white fabric. He was furious but I didn’t know over what exactly. His shirt? Or that I’d scared him?
Taken aback with his strange response, I shook my head and tried to get back on track.
There you go, I hope you enjoyed it.
Until next time,
much love ❤️❤️❤️❤️
