Thanks for joining me for another Sunday snippet from ICING ON THE CAKE. This bite is a continuation of last week’s scene, with Curtis and Sara dancing at their siblings’ wedding. Let’s see how their obligatory-but-smoking-hot dance ends…
“Only temporarily—you and I both know we’re not done.” He spoke the words against her ear, sliding his hand up over her back, into the ends of her hair. “Tell me I’m wrong and I’ll let you go permanently.” He released her, but caught her gaze as she stepped clear of him.
Her lips parted and moved, but nothing came out.
First time he’d seen Sara speechless, and he bet his Mustang it didn’t happen often. He winked and walked away, another mission accomplished.
ICING ON THE CAKE is Book 2 in the Close to Home series, but can be read as a standalone.

ICING ON THE CAKE
Close to Home series — Book 2
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…
