Author Guest / February 21, 2020

This excerpt shows the meet-cute between Rose and Owen–but it’s more like a meet-disaster! She returns to her ex-fiance’s apartment while he’s not home to get back the rest of her things, like the gorgeous heirloom bed she inherited from her grandmother. Little does she know that she’s in for one hell of a (sexy) surprise. . . *** Rose put her key in the lock and held her breath. Her hands shook. “Stop it,” she muttered under her breath.

That is, until a giant slab of man muscle stubs his toe on her suitcase and comes crashing down on her in the dark. So, yeah. The first words our heroine says (er, shouts) to the hero involve a few choice words I can’t publish here, and a threat to stab him in…a sensitive area. The stuff of great romantic memories, right? They might have to leave out some of the details when they’re reminiscing to their kids about how they met. And yet, it really is the start of something special. Talia, a ballet dancer prepping for a make-or-break role,…
