Snippet Sunday: Christmas in July 99 cent spicy romance: Feast of Candles #snippetsunday #christmasinjuly

Hi all, I'm participating in the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday. This month, I'll be taking snippets from my spicy contemporary romance, Feast of Candles. You can find the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday list at:
About this excerpt:  Drake and Lily share a kiss.


He drew close, pressing the length of his body against hers. His lips skirted her mouth. Her pulse quickened, eager to taste him. His lips slowly met hers in a warm, sweet kiss. The kiss was slow, thoughtful, making her heart ache under her breasts. His mouth moved with tantalizing persuasion, coaxing her to want more – to need more.
Lily's heartbeat skyrocketed and she placed her hands on his shoulders, tugging him to her. His hands locked against her spine.


Travel to California wine country and enjoy this snippet from my 99 cent Christmas romance, "Feast of Candles," featuring Jimmy Thomas on the cover.

Drake de Brettville is going to take the biggest risk of his life – because of a bottle of wine. When Drake's brother returns to their home in Denmark with a bottle of wine from the Marquand Winery, Drake finds himself compelled to discover who the wine maker is. Intrigued to learn that the owner is a young woman named Lily Marquand, Drake travels to Napa Valley, California, to meet her. 

When Drake finds Lily, the sparks fly. Lily is that rare woman who stimulates him like no other, but to win her love, Drake has to shatter the battlements that guard her heart and prove to her Christmas wishes do come true.
