Flash Forward Friday-LOCKED AND LOADED Teaser #4

posted in: Book Excerpts, Various Musings | 0

I can’t believe January is almost over.  That just blows my mind.  This month has flown by quickly!  There is one good thing about that, I guess–Locked and Loaded comes out Monday, February 1.  The two limited publication Bullet Box Sets that contain the remainder of the series will be discounted over the weekend and on release day, so if you haven’t picked them all up yet, now’s your chance to do it with significant savings.  I’ll post those links below.

For those of you who have already read all the books, you’re likely wanting me to get on with the show, so here’s today’s Locked and Loaded teaser!

“What’s going on with you?”

Jennifer blinked, acting like she was going to start talking—start saying something real—but then she backed out at the last second. “I’m just tired.”

Letting the breath out of his lungs, Zane considered for a moment whether he should push it a little, playfully or not, or just let her go.

The problem was he didn’t want to let her go—not now or ever. It was time to stop running from her. In those few moments, he realized that he was willing to endure all the fighting, all the arguing, every single fucking disagreement if he could just have her in his life for good. He was even willing to change himself to get there. He wasn’t going to just let her go anymore.

But he didn’t trust himself to say it. Instead, he took another step toward her. She’d just pointed her key fob at the door and unlocked it, but she paused and looked up at him then. She was almost like a deer in headlights but not quite as skittish. He reached out and touched her cheek, moving his hand until he cupped it, and the way she blinked—almost in slow motion—told him more than her words had.

She felt it, too.

It was still there and it wasn’t just a pile of dying embers—it was a raging inferno beneath the surface. At least that was what he suspected, but he’d only know based on the combustion that would happen when they kissed.

He moved his face toward hers, gauging her response. Her eyelids fluttered and her lips parted just a sliver, but that was enough for Zane to realize she wanted him—wanted him to kiss her, if nothing else.

He didn’t need a flashing green light.

He touched his lips to her warm ones, softly at first, gauging if the light was indeed green or maybe just yellow…
