 ‘He pushed the horrific images from his mind and sought a diversion. The answer to his prayer walked down the stairs in a black lace dress, demure, with its buttoned up lacy collar and long sleeves. Jen’s hair restrained again, his fingers itched to free it, barely any makeup, pale skin added to her air of fragility. Jared captured and held Jen’s troubled gaze. Driven by a protective instinct he ran up the stairs. Enclosed in his warm grip, the coldness of her delicate hand alarmed him. He stroked the soft skin and encouraged the blood flow, the scent of roses drifted off Jen’s body. His arousal went into overdrive. She smelled so good. “Are you okay kitten?” ‘

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.”

Here’s a snippet from the first chapter.  🙂

“Hello.” Jennie pressed the accept button on her phone without checking the caller ID.

“Jen?”

The  familiar voice caused butterflies in her stomach.“Yes. Jared? What’s wrong?”She dropped gratefully into a comfy sofa, one of several which lined the faculty building walls.

Jared Stewart perched his body on the edge of his desk. He’d put this conversation off for hours. “It’s Annie and Ralf…”

Jennie’s face chilled as shock forced the blood from peripheral vessels to her vital organs.“Are they okay?” She gripped the cushioned arm of the sofa as her sight blurred.’
