Here’s a snippet from ‘The Dangerous Gift’ my romantic suspense story.

Jared bent down and scooped Jennie into his muscular arms. Her mind protested. Her needy body snuggled into his safe, protective embrace. Exhaustion won over principles. It seemed churlish to refuse his comfort. He carried her as if she weighed nothing and placed her amid the couch’s cushions. The forgotten invitation card fell from his pocket into Jennie’s lap. The words stared back at her. She shivered. Someone hated her.

Jennie fought sleep. Jared moved round the modern kitchen with quiet expertise.”I didn’t realise you could cook.” The golden omelette slipped easily from the pan onto the waiting plate. Jared looked across at her.

“Never said I couldn’t but if someone does it for me I don’t object.”

She hobbled over to the work counter. A lick of fire rushed to her core when his fingers’ grazed hers as she took the plate. She risked a glance at Jared anxious to see if the chemistry affected him too. He averted his gaze. Flustered she heaped too much salad onto her plate and headed for the scrubbed pine table in the middle of the room. The fluffy and light omelette melted in her mouth. Her stomach growled in appreciation. Jared added salad to his own plate before he joined her.”This is good Jared. I’m so hungry.”
