It's Monday... The first day of Excerpt Week!

Today, I'm highlighting my Romantic Suspense SEPTEMBER HEAT.



Rose St. Johns is being chased out of New York, trying to stay one step ahead of an overzealous fan that the police and her agent aren't above labeling stalker, although the last place she would expect them to send her is Las Vegas. Furious with her situation, fear is something she is slow to admit to. But circumstances don't allow her to be ambivalent for long when she is tracked to her hideaway. Her only hope lies in a man she knew as a boy, whose secrets are his, and his alone.


Excerpt: (Never before seen! Unless you have the book! hahaha!)


Gavin needed to stop. He needed to quit kissing her, but he couldn’t. He had a
legitimate reason for doing it, but just the feel of her lips became reason enough to
continue. He slid his other hand through her hair, holding her steady and he slowly
stopped thinking.

Rose’s lips trembled against his and once again the cad in him wanted to keep
going, wanted to make love to her. Gavin wanted it too.

“Gavin,” she whispered as he sipped at her mouth. The husky sound of her voice
brought the fire higher.

He leaned his forehead to hers, fighting himself. “You don’t need this, Rose. I’m
one big problem you don’t need,” he whispered hoarsely.

He felt her hand on his cheek and his skin burst into flame at her touch. He
moaned deep in his throat when she swept her tongue against his mouth.

“Gavin, do you want me?” she asked.

His gaze snapped to hers, a forest green that impaled him. He groaned again as she
lifted her lips to his and he could no longer deny
himself. “Rose, I have wanted you forever, but I am no good for you.” He tried to make
her understand, tried to make himself pull away, but there was no turning back when
her sweet voice hit him between the eyes.

“Gavin, don’t stop.” Her gaze was intense and he swallowed.

“This is too fast, Rose. You’re in shock,” he said, needing her to stop him. His
hands were already cradling her, pulling her down to lie next to him. He kissed her
cheeks. “You don’t know what you’re asking.”

“Yes, I do.”

He groaned deep once more as her hands lifted and spread against his chest. He
loved the feeling of her palms against his body.

“Rose,” he sighed. “I could ruin you,” he finally threw out to her, needing to give
her one last chance, but his warning faded into the room around them when she pushed
him back, her hands planted on his chest and she lowered herself to kiss him.

He had never tasted a kiss like hers. He had never had a woman who could take
control from him, to one he would gladly give it...

just waving hello and saying, "cool excerpt and cover"

I cannot tell a lie. I did not go look up the editor, so I will not say, "Rene Walden."
