Read an Ebook Week: 1-7 MAR 2015: 99 cent contemporary romance - Gifts #ebookweek



BLURB:  

Figure skating is in Christian Jansen's blood. When he trips on uneven ice and drops his partner, Chris breaks his arm. Now he's looking for a second chance.

Famke deVries lost her skating coach four months ago. Needing to connect with her roots, she returns to Amsterdam and agrees to be Christian's new skating partner.

Christian and Famke connect on a deep level, understanding each other's losses, but will their chemistry off the ice interfere with their goal to go to the Olympics?


EXCERPT:

Famke stared in the direction that her brother had indicated. Christian stood near a gift shop, holding a box. She poked her tongue against her cheek and drew in a breath. Growing up, Stephen and Christian were inseparable. Chris had always been tall, but slim, with a wild haircut and a very pale complexion. He was still tall, but now he filled out his clothes well with his muscular frame and broad shoulders. His hair was golden-yellow, but he'd found a cut that framed his face to perfection. She spied a scar on his temple, and despite the imperfection, it gave him a very masculine appearance. Oh, dear. Christian Jansen had become a very handsome man.
He approached, his gait emphasizing the force of his thighs and the slimness of his hips. She prayed a man that good looking wasn't vain and self-absorbed. She couldn't work with anyone who was like that.
Christian stopped and held out his box. "Hi. I bought you a gift."
She pointed to her chest, a bit surprised. "For me?"
"I hope you like Mozart Krugel."
Her hand slid over his as she reached for the box and a reassuring warmth pulsed up her arm. "I love Mozart Krugel. Thanks."
His eyes sparkled. "You're welcome."
"Do you have any bags to claim?" asked Stephen.
"I've got one." She broke open the box and offered Stephen a piece.
"No, thanks." He gestured toward the walkway and they strolled off, Famke between the men.
"I want to say thank you for agreeing to become my partner. I appreciate it." Christian's voice resonated with seriousness.
"How could I refuse?" She kept her voice light, not wanting to recall her weightier thoughts, and offered him a piece of chocolate. He took one.
