Icing on the Cake,  Sunday Snippets

Sunday Snippet – ICING ON THE CAKE – Prologue

Sunday snippet time, part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme.

Starting today, I’ll be posting from my July 1st release, ICING ON THE CAKE, Book 2 of the Close to Home series. This book can be read as a standalone, but I still think it’s better if you read CUP OF SUGAR first. (PS: CUP OF SUGAR is on sale for 99¢)

ICING-on-the-CAKE-finalfinalEI’ve never included a prologue in a book before, but there’s one in ICING ON THE CAKE, a short scene that revisits Conn & Nia before the new leads’ story starts. So here’s a little sample from that…

“They’ll be here soon. I checked the highway report a few minutes ago, everything’s clear and accident-free,” Conn said while wrapping his arms around her.

“For now. Look at it out there…it just keeps coming.”

He slid his hand lower, inside the front of her jeans. “Kind of reminds me of you.”

Nia’s breath hitched as her body responded to his touch. “This isn’t a good time.”

“I disagree, sweetheart—you coming for me is always a good time.”

COMING SOON — July 1st


Nia and Conn’s wedding will be fairytale perfect…if their siblings can get along.

Free-spirited, anti-establishment Sara has always been on the outside of her family’s fairytale mold. Now she’s being forced smack into the middle of it at her sister Nia’s wedding. Alongside the cocky and annoyingly sexy best man—Conn’s cop brother.

Curtis doesn’t buy in to organized romance and fairytales. But for his brother, he’ll throw on a tux and fake it for a few hours. His flak vest would have been a better choice around the maid of honor. He should have brought his handcuffs too, because somebody needs to restrain the dark-haired spitfire—and he’s just the man for the job.

One night to indulge the spark between them, then goodbye—that was the agreement. Curtis isn’t looking for a relationship and he sure doesn’t want a troublemaker for a girlfriend. The last thing Sara needs in her daily life is a cop looking over her shoulder, no matter how hot he is.

But giving in to their chemistry is much more fun than giving it up…
