So, TEMPTED will be available on March 27th, and I thought I’d post a new excerpt. Here it is:
Biting back a sigh, Max stalked over uneven concrete and deep puddles. Maneuvering around to the rear of the paint-chipped building, he found his prey.
Two long legs led up to a heart-shaped ass trying to wiggle out a window. He let her drop to the ground, waiting until she turned around.
“Please don’t run.” His boots were made for kicking down doors, not running.
Sarah yelped, pressing back against the worn shingles, hand to her chest.
It was the worst self-defense move he’d ever seen. “I’m not going to hurt you.”
Eyes the color of deep chocolate widened. Dark circles marred the smooth skin over her delicate features. Running had taken a toll. Sandy-blond hair framed her classic face. She stood much taller than Cara and Emma, the new mates of his friends and the only human females he’d been near in over a century.
This woman, the one he hunted, she stood tall with legs long enough to give him pause. Yet, even at about five foot eleven, she was several inches shorter than him.
Something sizzled along his spine. His body reacted to the gentle vibrations cascading off the woman. Instinct honed his focus on her. Special. He should’ve known by his obsession with her picture. The woman was a potential vampire mate. Enhanced. Maybe an empath?
He waited as she settled her stance. Then went for a knee shot.
It was the worse side kick he’d ever seen. Her worn tennis shoe bounced off his knee, causing no more hurt than a breeze. She stumbled, and he reached out to steady her. His hand easily wrapped around her bicep. “Where the hell did you learn to fight?”
“The internet,” she gasped, trying to jerk away.
That explained it. “The knee shot was a good move. You just didn’t aim the kick right.” He was a big guy. If she dropped him, she’d be able to run.
“Should I try again?” Fire lit her eyes while a small smile flirted with her pink lips.
The humor caught him off guard. He matched her smile. “You’ll just hurt your foot.”
