Felt like sharing the cute factor 🙂
Hi all, I know this poor blog has resembled a long-forgotten graveyard this past month, but I have been super busy. Moving house took a lot more out of me than I thought it should (I must be getting old, lol) and I didn’t get my internet sorted for weeks after moving day, which thoroughly annoyed me. Only this morning I had to ring the company AGAIN because I can’t play videos as the connection is so slow, and I get the same old message – it will be fixed in 24 – 48 hours. So in the meantime I am limping along.
But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been working, although I haven’t done as much as I would like. I was trying to write three books at the same time, in an effort to catch up with my schedule, but I have had a lot of distractions this month. However, what I can tell you is that the next book in the Alpha and Omega series (Harder in Heels) and the third book in the Stockton Wolves series (Mace’s Awakening) are both nearing completion, so there will be at least one new book out in July, possibly two.
And to tease your reading taste buds here’s short excerpt from Mace’s Awakening.
“Do I make you nervous?” Mace had always found being blunt about things worked for the best. He wasn’t one for saying nice things, or coddling someone, not even his female dates. And he hated trying to guess how another person might be feeling. He and Roan would get on famously if the man was prepared to tell him how he felt about anything, although Shane and Dimitri both had warned him that Roan might not be capable of being more than a people pleaser because of the way he’d been raised.
“Not nervous no.” Roan’s fingers picking at his jeans told a different story. But then Roan surprised him by looking straight at him, his face almost a mask. “I don’t understand what’s going on. I thought you didn’t want me. Why did you ask me to lunch?”
Mace grinned and he could tell Roan was surprised by his reaction. “I owed you an apology, and in my book, treating someone to a meal, and talking to them is a good way to go about it.” There, nice and simple.
“You consider pizza an apology?” Actually, when Roan put it like that, it made Mace sound like a cheapskate, and he wasn’t. “I didn’t want other people to look at you,” he said, flustered, because yep, one fucking pizza wasn’t going to make up for what Mace had put Roan through. But it seemed his mouth was running well ahead of his brain.
“You don’t like the way I look? What’s wrong with me?” Roan was looking at his clothes, his hand stroking over his hair as though it was a mess – and it really wasn’t, but all of a sudden Mace wanted it to be. A brilliant dark mess all over his pillows.
“You look perfect,” he said, closing the distance quickly, pulling Roan into his arms. “You are perfect. I’m just a big Neanderthal who doesn’t want other men looking at you, or women for that matter, and thinking they can have you.”
End Excerpt – poor Mace, human and straight. Let’s just say that Roan was a huge shock to him in more ways than one 🙂
