Welcome to another #MostWantedMonday excerpt as we countdown to the January 7 release of Wanted by J. Kenner, book one in the Most Wanted series of erotic romances that wilI be followed by Heated in May and Ignited in September!
I’m happy to say that I’ve been getting enthusiastic thumbs-up from from beta-readers!! I can’t wait until the book is available to everyone! I’m so excited for this new series!
Today’s image is a quote from the book. Thanks to Dana – @smuttastic on Twitter -who pulled a few favorite quotes when she did a beta read!
As those of you who follow me on Facebook know, I’ve been balancing deadlines with travel. So sorry for the delay in getting this post up! I’ll make it up to you by posting a few bonus excerpts throughout the coming weeks!
And until then … I hope you enjoy this week’s snippet!
As soon as he was out the door, I turned to Evan. “You are a very smooth liar.”
“Apparently not as smooth as I thought if you found me out so easily.”
“Maybe I just know you too well,” I quipped.
He looked at me for a moment, then took a single step closer. My breath hitched and my pulse began to pick up tempo, and when he reached out an arm toward me I stood perfectly still anticipating a touch that never came—it wasn’t me he was reaching for, but a bottle of wine.
Idiot, idiot, idiot. But at least I could breathe easy again.
“Too well?” he said, as he poured a glass of pinot noir and passed it to me. “Does that mean you’ve figured out all my secrets?”
Our fingers brushed as I took the wine from him, and I shivered from the spark of connection that seemed to shoot through me, all the way from my fingers to the very tips of my toes.
I saw the quick flash of awareness in his eyes, and wanted to kick myself. Because it wasn’t me that knew his secrets—it was the other way around. And damned if I didn’t feel confused and exposed and vulnerable.
“Secrets?” I repeated. I stood up straighter, determined to snatch back some measure of control. “Like the mystery behind why you’ve barely said two words to me all night? Why you’ve looked everywhere but me?”
He tilted his head as if considering my words, then he poured his own glass of wine and took a long, slow sip. “I’m looking at you now.”
