Blame it on the Moonlight

Reading: Lover Mine by JR Ward
Listening to: Best of Fleetwood Mac
Watching:  True Blood
Making me smile: The fact the conference is only a couple of weeks away.

My second Harlequin Spice Brief comes out in a few days. This one is quite a bit more romantic than my first. The cover is absolutly perfect to the story.It depicts the opening scene almost as I pictured it when writing.

About the story

After catching her fiancé—make that ex-fiancé—with another woman, Jasmine heads into the woods to be alone. But her solitude is broken when a black wolf approaches her...and turns into a wildly sexy man. Though she sees danger lurking in his eyes, it doesn't scare her away. Instead, it only fans the flames of her passion....

An Excerpt:
Lucas crouched low in the dew-dampened fall leaves carpeting the forest floor, his mouth filling with saliva. The woman sitting in the clearing looked good enough to eat and it’d been a long time since he’d sunk his teeth into something that juicy.

She was out here all alone, vulnerable to the many dangers lurking in the woods. He should know. He was the most dangerous of all.

The woman sat on a flat rock, her thighs drawn against her chest, honey blonde hair falling over the arms she braced across her knees. The blanket slipped to expose a creamy shoulder and bare legs crossed at the ankles.

Oh for a taste of that skin — to just nibble on the spot where her neck met her back, to dip into that honey pot.

The woman lifted her head. Tears glittered in the moonlight leaving silver trails down her pale cheeks. But even tear-stained she was the most beautiful thing in these woods. The hunger in him grew.

I am also on Kylie Griffin's blog today - and will give away a copy Blame It On The Moonlight to one lucky poster who comments on both blogs.

  10. I thought Kylie had a fab excerpt - so adding it here -

    Jasmine stepped backwards until she bumped into something rough and solid—the tree trunk. He was on her in a second. His hands braced either side of her head as he leaned in close to her ear, his hot breath washing over her cool skin.

    "Where are you going, little girl?" His gaze kept dropping to her lips as if mesmerized by them.

    "I don‘t know who you are," she whispered.

    "Yes, you do." He leaned forward, his breath a tender caress against her mouth. "I‘m the big bad wolf."
