This week’s six is from my debut novella, Marooned in Miami (release date 1/2/12 – Yes, that’s tomorrow! Squee!).
In this snippet, a tropical storm lands Stephanie and Jason in a candlelit suite for the night. She has just made it clear that Jason must spend the night on the sitting room sofa. Oh, but isn’t it a woman’s prerogative to change her mind?
Jason knew he should get up, leave the suite and not look back, but somehow he couldn’t. Stephanie intrigued him like no other — her eyes, her scent, her soft, delicious lips. Shit! He was wound tight. Leaning forward, he laced his fingers in his hair, his elbows resting on his knees when he heard the click of the door knob. He turned his head in her direction, his eyes traveled from those beautiful stilettos, up to eyes revealing a fire that almost scared him.
