Book Hooks is a weekly me the hosted by the MFRW Authors Blog. It’s a chance each week for authors to share current WIPs or samples of previously published work. This week I’m sharing another sexy snippet of Sweeter Than This:
A stranger looms in the shadows out for blood, and Officer Elle Taylor is running out of time and people to trust. Will Elle risk crossing the line between attraction and revenge to take help from an unexpected source, before the murderer strikes again and leaves her life in flames?
Durant Kane is no stranger to trouble, especially the kind that comes with a gun trained on his face and an angry woman attached. But Elle’s something different, something unexpected and sweeter. He never could have imagined coming to feel so deeply about her, even if his own disastrous path in relationships hadn’t left him so wary. But he’ll have to take the risk if he doesn’t want to lose the woman he’s come to realize he can’t even think of living without.
“I was wondering when you’d make your move.” Elle shook her head, not facing Durant. She didn’t need anyone getting suspicious. “I didn’t have a choice.”
“There’s always a choice.”
His cologne brought to mind images of the night before. “You shouldn’t be here.”
“Where should I be, then, Officer Taylor?” he asked, standing with his hands in his pockets, his gaze focused ahead at the crowd.
