Another Sneaky Peek – This Time From SWAY

SWAY is the first in my new Delicious series, which centers on Gillian’s friends from Bainbridge Island (you met them in NEVER ENOUGH). Sway will be in the CHERISHED duology I’m in with Maya Banks, out August 7…

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.

“Which brother is this?”

“Jonah, he’s the oldest.”

She smiled. “Are you two close?”

“Yes. There’s only a year between us. So we competed a lot.”

She laughed. “I bet. If he’s like you, I can only imagine all the taciturn competition. Two alpha males with big giant brains locked in friendly combat. Which sounds like the plot of a book I’d totally
read. I’d like to meet him.”

He took her hand and kissed the palm. She didn’t take him too seriously outside the bedroom. He liked that. Submission in sex was one thing. But he didn’t want a submissive woman in any other way. She poked fun at him and still managed to make him feel like a superhero.

“We should get the rest of this to go.”

Her smile changed, deepened, dripped with sensuality and it sent a shiver over him.

    So Sway will be out in August and Laid Open in October – anything planned for September ???:razz: Only kidding – I know you cannot turn out books like cakes – although I have to say it again – for me you cannot write them fast enough. Your recent announcement that you are planning to reduce your output has really shocked me!!! 🙁
