Snippet Sunday - Feast of Candles - 99 cent contemporary romance


Hi all, I'm participating in the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday. This month, I'll be taking snippets from my 99 cent "spicy" contemporary romance, "Feast of Candles."



Feast of Candles
Contemporary Romance
99 cents

BLURB: Drake is going to take the biggest risk of his life all on a bottle of wine. Can he break the barriers around Lily's heart? 

This snippet:  Lily commits to her decision

*****

She let out a deep breath and her gaze rested on the calendar which was on her desk. This was the most reckless thing she'd ever done in her life. Christmas was ten days away. The season embodied hope, generosity, and giving, and yet her heart ached at the thought of losing Drake. She didn't want him to leave. God, this was one of the scariest decisions she'd ever made to let him into the most intimate, private place of her life.

"Are you sure?" he asked.

Her hazel eyes met his Nordic blue ones. "Yes."

His mouth curved with tenderness and he offered Lily his hand.

  9. She's afraid to bring him to her most intimate place...which is what? I'm intrigued. And he IS persistent.
