Snippet Sunday - Feast of Candles

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

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 & Lily meet in person.


Why did it bother Lily so much to see him talking to Alexis? 

Wanting to stake her claim, she walked toward him, holding out her hand.

"Hello, I'm Lily Marquand."

A satisfied light came into his eyes. He took her hand and brushed his lips against her knuckles. Reckless warmth traveled up her arm.

"Enchante. Drake de Brettville." 



"This is a delightful short story." - Billie Houston, Amazon Reader

"Drake's romantic gesture at the end will have you swoon!" Angela Britnell, Amazon Reader

Jimmy Thomas is the cover model. Sigh... I just adore Jimmy! 


  1. "Reckless warmth traveled up her arm. " <-- Sentence is so perfect it could be poetry. Seriously, very nice. Thanks for the peek!

  2. Ooo! Love the "reckless warmth." Love it!

  3. I like the line "a satisfied light came into his eyes." Thanks for sharing--hope your dispatchers event went wonderfully! M. S.

  4. JT does make a great hero, doesn't he?

    I enjoyed this story! Of course it is no surprise, I've liked all your stories I've read. :)

  5. Gotta admire a woman who doesn't hesitate! Excellent excerpt!

  6. I love his smooth manners and sexy accent!
