Enchanted Skye ~by Rose Anderson
An ancient charm with potentially dangerous consequences grabs Alex. Here he wonders why he feels so strongly about a woman he just met.
Alex lay upon his bed staring at the ceiling, his acute senses entangled in Jenna’s presence. From the scent of her on his pillow and sheets, to the tell-tale sounds signaling her nap was over, he was experiencing her. That was the way of his wild Selkie blood — sensorial perspicacity.

When Will I See You Again by Julie Lynn Hayes
After a harrowing night, Alexx finds himself face to face with none other than Raoul Marchand himself.
Alexx had been staring so intently into Raoul’s grey eyes that he didn’t immediately notice the other man’s state of au natural until his gaze began to wander down along his well-sculpted and very naked body, and his eyes grew big. He was magnificent. Everything Alexx had imagined him to be, and more.

From Lily's Summer Cowboy:
A man sat on the rocking chair, spinning a white Stetson on the toe of one of his boots. A striped western shirt hung open over a grey t-shirt snugged against a flat belly and faded Wranglers pulled over taut thighs.
This was Maggie’s grandson?

From time travel romance Thoroughly Modern Amanda.

Using all her strength, she pushed him over and tilted her ear toward his mouth. Shallow breaths lifted his broad chest that rose and fell with regularity. If only she could wake him.

From Cursed Book 1.5 Legends of Oblivion Fantasy/ Paranormal Romance

“Emir voulan sptrea.”
“What does that mean?”
I eased her chin up and when she looked into my eyes, I said, “We are one heart.”

From Dream Doctor (book two of the Dream Series). Our heroine has discovered that her nextdoor neighbor is lusting after her husband, and she's not dealing with it especially well...

And if she so much as puts a hand on him, I'll cut her heart out. I know how to do it, too. I’ve been reading ahead - the instructions are right there in Grant's Dissector. Page 75.
I think I’ll mark the page with a post-it note. Just in case.

Thanks for this great opportunity!

From TORN by Gilli Allan

It was a long time since she’d done anything so impetuous, so stupid, and had lost some of the brazenness needed to face the stranger in the morning. Especially after you’ve thrown your guts up down the loo a few hours earlier, she thought. Had he fancied her sufficiently, after she’d vomited, to proceed with what he had every right to believe was on offer before? If there had been any sex she’d been too far-gone to remember it now.
She had only the haziest memory of what he actually looked like. More importantly did he use a condom?

From "The Marquesa's Necklace" The heroine has been abducted for reasons unknown to her.

None of my self-defense training prepared me for this kind of situation. As Eric knelt down to cut the straps from my ankles, I imagined how good it would feel for my foot to make contact with his face. But there was the issue of the knife, the cord pulled tight around my chest, and the other man. I wasn’t that good.

From SANGUINARY by Margo Bond Collins:

No. No way in hell was I walking out of here with a pissed-off vampire. That's how cops got dead.

Happy Sunday! Here's a snippet from FIRST AND AGAIN:

Bridget got the impression that Celia laughed a lot. Must be nice. Divorce and financial ruin had left her without much of a sense of humor.

FIRST AND AGAIN is available from Carina Press.

From CAMPAIGN (Brad and Ryn's Story)
A snippet from Ryn and Billy's (friend) chat

The number of times she had sat here with him since she’d lost her voice were too numerous to count. Billy learned to sign before anyone else in the household, including her mom, who still struggled. Even after all these years, her dad couldn’t understand more than a few words.

This snippet is from "3381 Market Street" one story in my crime/mystery anthology "Flagitious" due for release later this month.

Hesitating, because of what she knew she must do, Katherine Sims tapped on the glass window of the Sheriff dispatcher’s cubicle. To the deputy inside, she huskily whispered, “I want to report murder.”

DEADLY EXODUS: A ruling authority too powerful to challenge, but to those desperate for a new life and a chance at love, defiance is worth the risk.

“I think they caught our scent, the sounds are getting closer,” Nyla said.

“Just keep walking and don’t talk,” Ethan replied as he listened to the howling. His mind wandered back to the highway and he felt true fear for the first time in his life.

Three sentences from Marooned, my steamy pirate story:

"When a ship is captured, the quartermaster catalogs the goods on board, then it is divided evenly among the crew. The captain receives a share-and-a-half. You would be mine."

From Jareth, First Lord

“‘In the heart of winter, the two become one, the past put to rest, the future begun,’” Jareth said, quoting the ancient legend. “Perhaps there is a reason we came here tonight,” he told her, his eyes staring intently into hers as if he could read her soul.

From Business or Pleasure by Ashley Ladd

“I’ll make you—it—my priority. Just give me a couple days.” Damn! A Freudian slip.
