I’m excited to be involved in the first ‘My Sexy Saturday’ blog hop of 2014. I’m sure there will be lots of exciting excerpts shared 🙂
Mine is from my current WIP, entitled Psychic Shadows. Please bear in mind is unedited at the moment. Hope you enjoy x
Lieutenant Shannon Dempsey had always known she was different, that she could see and hear things that others couldn’t. When she finds a frightened boy at the scene of a murder, it leads her to a mysterious man who may hold the answers she’s been seeking all her life.
Forced to work with David, Shannon can’t deny the blazing attraction between them or the lure of someone who finally shares her talents. But what is the shadowy agency that David works for, and what is their connection to the murder she’s investigating? Can he really provide answers, or just danger?
She managed a smile, suddenly feeling awkward. He reached past her for the door handle, just as she moved for it herself. Her hand ended up over his and before she’d managed to get her shields up a rush of emotions surged over her. Worry, exhaustion but over-riding them a tide of desire that seemed to centre in the one place where their skin touched. Her gaze flew up to his, the deep blue drawing in her, until she was drowning in the ocean. Her breath caught and her skin tingled, and she had the oddest feeling that she didn’t even know if it was her desire, his, or a mingled combination of the two. Whatever it was seemed to be crashing over her, the tiny rational part of her brain was telling her to run away, but she felt herself swaying towards him. His eyes darkened, the hand on hers tensed and she was convinced he was leaning back into her when he suddenly blinked sharply and stepped back. She stood a moment, dazed, feeling slightly like someone had thrown cold water over her and acutely aware of the loss of his hand under hers.
“You’re a magnifier as well, apparently.” His voice was husky, and she had to blink several times before she could process what he’d actually said.
“What does that mean?” Her voice didn’t seem to want to work.
“You amplify emotions, and turn them back on people. It’s a useful gift, just watch it doesn’t get away from you.”
She felt her face flaming, Christ he sounded so calm, when she was still feeling like she was going to keel over if she moved away from the door.
“Yes, well…” What the hell was she supposed to say to that?
His face softened. “Don’t worry, honey. You’ll be fine.” He reached out a hand and lightly tucked a strand of hair behind her ear, before his finger lingered, trailing a line down her cheek. She stood there, her body seeming frozen except for the trail of fire running from his fingertip. Honey?
