1.99 Christmas Contemporary Romance: The Faberge Secret #snippetsunday

Hi all, I'm participating in the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday. This month, I'll be taking snippets from my contemporary romance: The Faberge Secret









This snippet:  Elise just knocked Mr. Handsome over on a cold winter day. 
*****

"You'll forgive me, miss, but you seem to have me at a disadvantage." The man's voice was deep, yet resonant with the lilt of a foreign accent.

Elise bit her lower lip, pausing momentarily to drink in his handsome, angular features. His lips were firm and sensual, parting into a broad smile to reveal straight white teeth. He possessed thick, tawny-gold hair, and massive shoulders filled his coat. God, he felt wonderful. She gave in to the moment, savoring the contact with him.

"I'm sorry," she said again, softly. 


****
The Faberge Secret takes place during Christmas between Brattleboro, Vermont and St. Petersburg, Russia. 


5 Hearts, Sizzling Hot Book Reviews
As the love story thicken, the suspense heightens and it won't let your eyes leave the page. I recommend The Faberge Secret to all of the romance readers. Even if you have never read romance, The Faberge Secret would be a great place to start.

4 Stars, Manic Readers
"A satisifying read."

4 Stars, Night Owl Book Reviews

The Faberge Secret is a fast paced, delightful adventure with plenty of love and adventure sprinkled in for spice.

    1. Millie, I'd like to think he's possesses those classic Nordic Russian looks. Think Viggo Mortensen. hehe

  7. I agree with the others -- I don't think she's truly sorry she ran into him. In fact, I think she's rather enjoying it!
