A snippet from SWAY

Levi Warner is an established, older man—wealthy, powerful, and above all, respectable. Then Levi meets Daisy, an uninhibited 24-year-old dance instructor and artist, not exactly the kind of woman Levi is accustomed to. But the young, free spirit, brings out something in him he only experienced in fantasies. When their scorching affair turns into something unexpectedly deeper, Levi finds himself torn between preserving his reputation, and exploring a wilder and much more satisfying kind of life.

“I saw you dancing. In the other room I mean. How long have you been teaching dance classes?” His murmur nearly made her jump, she was so lost in the way he’d made her feel.

She licked her lips and didn’t miss the way his pupils seemed to swallow the color in his eyes. Green, a pale green. Unusual. Especially with dark hair. His was nearly black, with salt and pepper throughout. It suited him. As did the scruff.

Really, he was a walking, talking dream of a man and he smelled as good as he looked.

Today’s prize is a copy of any of my available contemporary romances in whatever format they’re available in – Winner’s Choice
. You can see the list here. I’ll choose a winner from the comments to this post and announce on Monday April 16!

    I’m excited about this series. Not only do we get a little more Brown Sibling goodness – but new series. I am slightly ashamed to admit that I only just read Heart of Darkness this weekend after a little de la Vega drooling. Not sure WHY I hadn’t read it before but on the upside, I have less time to wait for Simon’s story! :mrgreen:

    Cannot wait to read this. Sometimes these relationships don’t go well because to me the immaturity of the girl in the story,so I am really looking forward to this story. 😀
