I am so excited. My first full length novel and I will be able to hold it in my hands very soon.
Enjoy the following excerpt. Once time gets closer I will have a contest and will be giving away a copy to one lucky commenter. Check back in the next few weeks for more details.
She has no memory of their love...
Kidnapped by terrorists and sent into a drug-induced coma, FBI intern Mercy Kingsley awakes with no memory of her ordeal—or the intimate interlude that got her pregnant. Convinced her child was fathered by her ex-fiancé, she walks away from the only man she has ever loved, determined to make things work with her ex, a man the FBI suspects is implicated in her abduction.
He knows the truth, but no one will listen...
FBI undercover agent Jason Michaels remembers what Mercy can’t and those memories are breaking his heart. Forced to keep his distance from his lover and their unborn child, Jason risks his life to protect Mercy from a cell of international terrorists who have vowed to get the secrets locked in her memory, no matter the cost. Can Jason convince Mercy to trust him until she remembers their past, or will he lose her to a man who will trap her in a nightmare world of darkness from which there is no escape?
Jason inched closer as her arms tightened around his neck. The electricity from her fingers as they curled into his hair shot down his spine. His hands surrounded her waist and pulled her tight against his chest. Her nipples hardened
against him, igniting a flame of desire. How he ached to touch them, taste them.
“Mercy,” he whispered against her lips as he pulled away. “We shouldn’t.”
He stopped as she placed her lips back on his. He gripped her waist to push her back until her tongue danced along the outline of his mouth. The fire burned out of control as it raced through him, but he needed to stop. He could not take this risk, not now.
“No Mercy, we can’t—”
“Please, I need this. I need you.” She closed the gap between them.
He stopped and pulled back, inches from her he whispered against her lips, “Mercy, what’s my name, who am I?”
Jason sensed her hesitation as a shiver passed through her. She dropped her head to his neck and he felt the heat from her tears as they rolled down his shoulder.
He pushed her back and cupped her face in his hands. Her tears spilled through his fingers as her pain gripped his heart.
“Mercy, I just—”
“Please don’t, don’t stop. I know you, my heart tells me so.”
Jason felt the waves of her silent tears run through him as she wrapped her arms around him and laid her head on his shoulder. He leaned his head onto hers and strained to hear her whisper.
“I might not remember your name, but I know your touch, the way you make me feel. Love me, and help me remember.” Their eyes met and he froze as she inched closer.
Until next time :)
