I'm thrilled to join in with this week's Sexy Saturday Blog Hop!
Apparently I need to post just 7 sentences, paragraphs or words from one of my books.
Mmm... right, OK, let's go with a scene from And The Earth Moved - hope you enjoy!
Have a lovely day,
And The Earth Moved -
I expect him to shout, to swear, to try to force me, somehow manhandle me over the edge of the quarry with him. Instead he steps towards me, gently tilting my chin up with one hand. “You’re not a coward, Amber. I know you’re not. You’re a fighter. Determined. Strong. You can do this. You know you can. You’re not going to give in.”
I waiver under his intense gaze, my flimsy confidence bolstered slightly by his words. “I don’t know.”
Charlie slips a hand into mine and shrugs. “Fine. If you stay, I stay. No way am I leaving you here.”
The voices are so close now I can make out what they’re saying. Panic rises up in me, a flood of fear and doubt. Shouts of ‘this way’ and ‘over here’ punch their way through the woods.
Can I do this? Jump into the black quarry hole to land in freezing cold water?
Do I have any choice?
I glance at Charlie, his face clouded with uncertainty. He’s prepared to stay with me, risk his own life, risk God knows what, if I refuse to jump.
ABOUT THIS BOOK:
One minute you're at work making up horoscopes for the local paper, the next you're teaming up with a sexy secret agent called Charlie and trying to help solve a case for the Celebrity Crimes Investigation Agency...
Amber’s making up the horoscopes for the local paper and wishing for some excitement in her life when she gets a phone call offering her just that. It could change her life forever and plunge her into a world where she’s quickly (and scarily) out of her depth.
The call? Heartthrob actor Ennis McKarthy, her old uni boyfriend, begs her for a favour. His brother Joel has been found is dead - in very suspicious circumstances.
Desperate to keep the story out of the newspapers and solve the mystery of his brother’s death as fast as possible, Ennis has called in the specialists in the shape of the CCIA. The Celebrity Crimes Investigation Agency has just the man for the job – their top agent Charlie Huxton.
But Ennis, stalked by journalists and paparazzi, doesn’t trust a stranger to handle the case on his own and keep quiet about what he might discover so he pleads with Amber, wanting her to shadow Charlie throughout the investigation.
Much to Amber’s surprise Charlie eventually agrees, leaving her wondering why. What’s he up to?
Charlie and Amber delve into Joel’s death and soon have their hands full with questioning potential suspects and the victim’s irate ex-girlfriend.
Then they discover they’re battling something far more dangerous than they could ever have expected…and it’s not just their growing attraction for each other.
Maybe Amber’s life is about to get too exciting...
