Posted November 6, 2015 by sarah in Excerpt, Giveaway, Uncategorized / 0 Comments

From the New York Times bestselling author of Sweet Ache comes a blistering new novel
filled with danger, secrecy, and a desire that can’t be sated…

Foreign war correspondent Tanner Thomas is addicted to
living on the edge. Needing the adrenaline rush of his job to help him cope
with a personal loss, he throws himself back into the game, concentrating all
his energy on getting the next big story. But when he meets his new
photojournalist, Beaux Croslyn, he can’t help but feel like he’s losing his
focus—and maybe risking more…

With secrets she won’t address, Beaux is far from your
ordinary woman. Determined to keep her distance, she’s willing to pull Tanner
in closer and hide behind the sparks flying between them. But as Beaux’s past
begins to put their relationship—and their lives—at risk, Tanner’s
determination to find the truth puts them both in jeopardy.

He’s ready to chase her to the ends of the earth to find
out if what they had was real, or if the danger surrounding them was just an
exquisite heat fated to burn out….

Even when I say her name, I’m cursing myself for it. “Beaux!” She just keeps
walking, causing my better judgment to win out over my obstinacy.
“I said
stay away . . . and it’s BJ to you.” She stops and turns around, but a passerby
on the sidewalk bumps harshly against her shoulder. Her small frame sways from
the contact, and I’m beside her in two strides.
can’t go that way unless you’re looking for trouble.” I decide to ignore her
She just
shakes her head and starts walking away from me, but at least she’s moving in
the direction of the hotel. I swear I hear her mutter something about always
looking for trouble, but I miss the rest of it when a car passes in between us,
the sound drowning out her voice.
My feet
kick up the dirt on the street as I try to catch up to her. I lie to myself
that I want to talk to her to establish some kind of ground rules about how
we’ll work together, try to restore a professional level, but I know I’m just
making sure she gets back into the confines of the hotel safely.
barely chilled air-conditioned lobby of the hotel meets us as we enter, but it
feels like heaven in contrast to the stifling heat outside. If she knows I’m
beside her, she doesn’t acknowledge it, and that’s fine with me. I just want to
make sure she’s nice and tucked away in her room where I don’t have to worry
about her for a bit while I try to drum up some leads.
elevator car opens on cue as we approach. I step in right behind her, lean
against the rear wall, and fold my arms across my chest to mimic her posture.
The door closes, but neither of us moves in a game of chicken. Just when the
doors start to open up again without the car ascending, Beaux steps forward and
presses the button for the twelfth floor. She looks over to me and raises her
eyebrows in question.
“My room,
please. You remember where that is, right?” I angle my head, stare at her, and
enjoy watching her cheeks flush with anger.
I wait
for the snide comment to come, but she just turns and faces the doors of the
elevator without pushing the button for the eighth floor. Tension is so thick
in the car, you can all but see it.
“I don’t
trust you,” I say evenly, but it cuts through the silence.
she says matter-of-factly as the car alerts our arrival on the twelfth floor.
“Be careful whom you trust—the devil was once an angel, you know.”
And with
that she walks off the elevator without another word, her comment already
replaying in my mind.
