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:  

*****


Drake dared a step forward and placed a hand on her elbow. "I don't want you to feel pressured to give me an answer right now."

"Good. I don't want to confuse business with pleasure." She turned to face him, her expression thoughtful, yet quiet.

He curved his fingers under her chin, tipped her face toward his, and kissed her.

Drake started the kiss slow, savoring the sweet/sour taste of her lips.

    1. Joanne, thanks for popping in. It's never easy to pick the snippets, but I think one really gets across the essence of their chemistry.

    1. LOL. I agree. Drake believes actions speak louder than words and he really convinces Lily when he does two things to prove himself.
