Here’s an excerpt from my WIP – Captive Hearts – Book 2 Hearts series:

Instead of scowling at her, like he usually did when she lost a sparing match with him, something flashed in his eyes. Impression? Desire? No, couldn’t be that. His breath of vanilla and mint washed over her, and she couldn’t stop staring at his mouth. Had it always been full with a dimple on the side of his cheek when he smiled?

“Guess I took you by surprise that time.” She forced her eyes from his mouth to stare into his gold flecked brown eyes. “Maybe you need to up your game?”

Without a comeback, he lowered his head and brushed his mouth across hers. Tingles spread through her. Before she could react, he pulled away and stood.

“Now who’s off?” Tommy smirked and his dimple deepened.

Obviously she was. Tommy didn’t like her, not in a romantic way, he couldn’t. They’d spent years together ever since the Uncles faked their death and became their guardians. After their foster parents were killed, the Uncles were the only ones they and their dad trusted. She thought she knew men; she’d been so sure Paul was the good guy he pretended to be. And it had all been a lie.

Tommy placed his hands on her shoulders until she looked up at him.

“Don’t bring him into your thoughts.” His brown eyes softened. “He’s not worth it. You are so much better than that scum.”

#Art Tuesdays – #Book Reveal – #romanticsuspense #MFRWorg #equills

My latest novel, Stolen Hearts Book 1 releases tomorrow! Even though Art Tuesdays is on Friday this week – I’m show casing my amazing book cover – which is art in my opinion – that my publisher SilverTree Publishing created.

Tagline: She stole a cop’s heart, will this thief pay for her crimes?

Genre: Contemporary Romance Suspense

Available: Now at Amazon Kindle

StolenHeartsFullSize

Crystal was raised as a thief, bent on revenge. She uses her talents to target the corporation that destroyed her family and her innocence.

When a handsome undercover cop enters her life, Crystal worries she’ll be caught before her mission can be completed – or lose her heart to the one man she can’t trust.

Kade lost his partner in Texas and is looking for a fresh start in the NYPD. Catching the thief whose been targeting the Westridge Corp. will help his transfer become permanent.

Will Kade discover the truth, or will he blame Crystal for stealing his heart?

Excerpt:

Crystal shimmied down the drainpipe with her trophies tucked inside her backpack and computer files loaded onto her USB, hung around her neck disguised as a locket. This was too easy. Not like the Warren job where the COO kept changing the menu and supervised their catering to ensure they had followed the strict rules of kashrut.

She landed on the concrete with a thump, then removed her mask. Usually she worked at night when the catering gig didn’t provide the necessary cover, but she had a date this evening.

A blind date.

Her sister’s fiancée had called earlier that day to let them know his cousin from Texas would join them for dinner and would Crystal come along? As far as Crystal was concerned, it was the closest thing she’d come to as a real date in a long time. She’d take it.

Thankfully, her catering appointment with Westridge canceled yesterday. While she enjoyed cooking, it was only a cover for her and her sister’s illegal activities. What she excelled at was computers, but having a career in that field, now, would be too suspicious. Her IT skills far exceeded a Level One Help Desk worker. She despised working for Westridge, the man who had her mother killed and her dad thrown into jail, but catering was the easiest way into her target’s homes without suspicion. And she refused to pose as a cleaning lady and scrub their filth.

Years ago, Dad found what he thought was a series of accounting errors. For his honesty trying to help Westridge correct the problem, he was thrown in jail to rot. Westridge and his company framed her dad for embezzlement and sharing confidential information with preferred suppliers to obtain favors. Now she and her sister were halfway toward exonerating him and exposing Westridge and his corporate crimes. To see the look on Joshua Westridge’s face when he was convicted would make all her and her sister’s sacrifices worth it.

Thunder boomed as she weaved through alleys, stinking of rotting food and urine. She barely made it to her car before thunder rumbled.

Crystal checked the time on the dashboard, almost seven. No time to waste. Paul and his cousin, Kade, were picking up her and her sister at seven-thirty. Her car hummed to life as she stashed her backpack behind her seat. The stolen cash, including a recently purchased blood diamond necklace, lay inside. Hopefully the money and necklace would throw off Westridge’s Sales Manager to the fact that computer information had been the real prize. And hopefully, they wouldn’t discover the truth until it was too late. For now, another piece of the puzzle to exonerate their dad and lock Westridge away lay on her chest inside her locket.

She whipped into traffic and hit the wipers as fat drops of rain slapped against the windshield. Great. Ahead, a red light flickered as taxis and cars lined up behind it. She debated taking Ninth, but decided against it. Construction was still ongoing and traffic would be worse than this.

Maybe squeezing in a job before dinner wasn’t such a great idea.

My Sexy Saturday between a cop and a thief #MSS76

My Sexy Saturday………….Stolen Hearts Book 1

Forthcoming February 2015

Her hand running down his arm was distracting.

“But I’d rather not talk about why I’m stuck in this hospital bed.” He reached out and hooked his fingers in her hair. “Paul could return at any moment and I’ve wanted to feel your lips for weeks.” Not waiting for a response, he brushed his mouth across hers. Light. Gentle. Asking.

When she sighed against his mouth, he pulled her to him until she fell across his torso. Her lips tasted of cherries and vanilla. God, she felt good in his arms.

His tongue swept across her bottom lip, seeking an invitation. When she gave it, he growled and deepened the kiss. Their lips and tongues grew more insistent. He wanted to feel her skin beneath his hands. To kiss every inch and memorize her body.

His hand cradled her to him and he swept a hand up to her breast. Lace. Nice. She was full in his hands and he fought the urge to strip their clothes off and—

The door to his room creaked open and Crystal jumped off him as if he were a hot stove. Good thing he was covered up with the blankets or the hospital gown would show his excitement.

He should have asked Paul to drive downtown to pick up the food.
