Excerpt for The Rogue to Ruin

Mar 20, 2019

Happy Spring!

To celebrate the welcome of warmer weather (at least, according to the calendar), I’m posting the book-flap excerpt for THE ROGUE TO RUIN. Enjoy!

Warm wishes and happy reading,


“I hardly need your advice,” Ainsley scolded him in return, every word pushing her flesh against his. Almost as if… as if she had just kissed him.

But this wasn’t kissing, she assured herself. This was merely a new form of arguing.

Anticipating his next contradiction, she angled her head for closer contact and Reed growled in response. The low, primal sound sent an unexpected thrill rushing through her.

“It would be a waste of breath to tell you anything,” he said, fitting his other hand over the curve of her cheek to cradle her face. “Even if I wanted to say that your lips are soft and plump and more luscious than wine-poached pears, I wouldn’t.”

Then he tilted her head back to cement his argument. Opening her mouth with his own, he nibbled gently into her flesh, tasting the seam of her lips without hurry. The slow, thorough exploration caused her eyes to drift closed.

Her senses centered on the firm, enticing pressure of his mouth, the delicious rasp of his tongue. A wanton mewl tore from her throat, hungry and needy and urgent.

The unguarded sound brought her to an uncomfortable admission . . .

She might be kissing the enemy.

    Ever since This Debutante Is Mine you have had me! I watch for your next book and the only thing that keeps me patient is knowing that if I want it to be as good as the last I need to let you have the time to “make it so”. You are truly gifted and I am also looking ever so much forward to this next release! (hugs from Tucson)
