Plus a bit confused. My lovely hubby has been away a lot for work lately, and it was only at 8am I realised that indeed today is Tuesday, release day and my turn to chat here.
So I’m going to hold my hand up and say that yeah, it’s a bit of self promo blow my own trumpet look this is the book type post.
Be nice to me and don’t shout. I’ve already put my hot coffee in the fridge and tried to drink out of the empty milk jug. Then put my dirty plate back in the cupboard! Yeah, I need more coffee….
Ahh now I can be a bit more coherent maybe.
So, without further ado (because I need to drink the coffee this time)
and because I just love this way of showing the blurb…
and a wee tease…
The door swung open and Theresa turned to him. “My lord, would you like to come in?”
He hesitated. Theresa raised one eyebrow. Not so effective as when he did it, she was sure, but her best effort. However, he grinned, kissed her cheek, drew back and nodded. “I needed that.”
He did? “Why?” She was genuinely perplexed. It was the briefest touch, over almost before it began, and in full view of any passerby.
Jamie shrugged. “Do I need a reason?”
It was her turn to nod. “I rather think you do.”
“I crave your touch,” he said.
His diffidence was hitherto unknown to her, and it appealed more than perhaps it should.
“Which,” he continued, “is not easy to admit.” He lifted his hand toward her and let it drop by his side again. “It is, at the risk of sounding big-headed, usually the other way around.”
Out of the corner of her eye Theresa saw Roberts, her major-domo, beam and look benevolent before he tactfully turned his head. However discrete Jamie tried to be, someone would always notice. They were in luck that this time it was Roberts, who was in agreement the rest of her staff in hoping more would come of this alleged liaison.
“Crave, thirst for, covet…” Jamie sighed. “Lust after. However, I’m sure one touch would not be enough. You’re in my blood.”
Craving wasn’t good enough but it was a start. Even so, she dipped her head and spoke in a whisper. “And you mine.”
and on that note, I”m back to my coffee,
happy reading whatever it is (but I do hope it’s this book 😉 )
Love, Raven x
