DoubleTrouble_850

From the first moment coffee mogul, Will Carrington, gazed into the fiery, green eyes of Clare Sullivan, he’s hit with the feeling she does not like him. Not. One. Little. Bit. Used to being the proverbial prize by some gorgeous gold digging fortune hunter, he’s learned to be careful. But with his hunter instincts now on high alert, he’s determined to find out the why behind her stormy-eyed glances.

Top home designer, Clare Sullivan wants absolutely nothing to do with arrogant, self-assured Will Carrington, especially after he called her half-sister a gold digger. When she gets the opportunity to design his multi-million dollar Miami penthouse, she arrives at his office ready to decline his offer, and to tell him exactly what she thinks of his cruel and un-warranted comments.

While there, she overhears his one-sided phone conversation, which seems to further insult her sister. Assuming the worse, Clare makes the rash decision to accept the job and charge him a fortune in the process. Someone needs to teach him a lesson and what better way then with a swift kick in his wallet.

Since she and her sister have different surnames, Clare conveniently hides the connection to her sister. But while she works with Will, she discovers another side to this self-assured, woman-hater. A Jekyll to his Hyde. Charming and professional, he’s nothing like the man she’s heard about. What she doesn’t know is Will Carrington has a few secrets of his own.

An Excerpt

“So, tell me what you do all day?” Clare dabbed a napkin to her lips.

“Back to business, already? I thought we could at least finish dessert.”

“Now’s as good a time as any to find out more about you.” She placed the fork on the table, sat back against the vinyl booth, then removed a small, spiral notebook and pen from her purse. She looked expectantly at him.

Miss Haughty returns. He must confess he still had trouble trusting her motives. Earlier, when he’d asked her if he could trust her, her startled, wide-eyed, response was palpable. He was simply referring to dessert, but her reaction pointed to something more.

“Let’s see.” He sliced his fork into the pie. “I get up in the morning, I have coffee. I take a shower, then I get dressed. I drive to the office, then check the stock market.”

She stopped writing and raised her perfectly plucked brows at him. “That’s not exactly the type of information I was looking for.”

“You wanted to know what I did all day. I assumed you wanted details.”

She pursed her lips and sucked in a slow deep breath. “Look, I know you go to your office. You undoubtedly have meetings.”

“Undoubtedly.”

She huffed out a breath. “And, I assume as a businessman, you travel on occasion.”

“You see? You already know what I do all day.”

She snapped the tablet shut. “You’re right. You businessmen are all alike.” Just as she went to jam it inside her purse, he grabbed her hand.

“I’m sorry. I’ll behave. But on one condition.”

“Which is?”

“You pass me the rest of your chocolate cake.”

She sighed and pushed the plate across the table.

“Now may we continue?” she said.

“Absolutely.” He dove into the rich dessert, or what was left of it.

Flipping the tablet back open, she continued. “What are your outside interests? What do you do for fun?”

“I like water sports. Sailing, scuba diving, fishing. Aren’t you going to write that down?”

She put the pen to the paper. “Enjoys outdoor activities.”

“Water sports,” he purposely clarified.

“Anything else?”

“I like to read. Biographies, mainly.”

“Enjoys learning about other people.” She scribbled across the page as she spoke out loud.

“Is it necessary to repeat everything I say?”

She raised her eyes and looked at him. “I’m sorry. Do my stilted, boring answers bother you?”

“Touché.”

“I think…” She snapped the tablet shut and stuffed it in her purse along with the pen. “I have enough information to get started. You know. If we’re going to be working together, it would be helpful if—”

“Why did you take this job?”

She stiffened, touched her throat, opened her mouth as if she was going to speak, then clamped her lips together. For a split second, her gaze lowered to her purse, then she glanced back up. “It’s my work. I had an opening, and I love what I do.”

“True. But, I get the feeling you don’t like me.” There, it was out. But would she take the bait and be honest with him?

Today I’m hosting a cover reveal for my dear friend and fellow author, Darcy Flynn.

Hawke’s Nest, Book #1 in the Like No Other series.

HawkesNest8_850

Running away is nothing new for Annie Dell, aka high-fashion model Anna Delany. With the paparazzi hot on her trail, an out of town wedding couldn’t have come at a more opportune time. What better place to hide out than the quaint Florida beach town Liddy’s told her so much about. But a delayed flight, the mix up with the car rental, then a speeding ticket from the local Sheriff of Nottingham, her getaway is looking anything but relaxing.

Franklin County Sheriff, Levi Hawke, is tired of the spoiled, out-of-control students on fall break, who think they can speed through his county without consequence. After giving a ticket to a beautiful young woman he assumes is just another daddy’s girl looking for some fun in the sun, he discovers she’s his weekend date at his best friend’s wedding.

If that’s not a big enough tease, how about an excerpt:

Through gritted teeth, masked by a half-hearted truce, they survive the weekend, only to find themselves stranded alone in the middle of a hurricane. You can discover a lot about a person while spending thirty-six hours without the comforts of electricity and modern conveniences. When circumstances further extend her stay in town, Levi pries deeper to find out what Annie’s running from. He knows when someone is haunted by their past. As the saying goes … it takes one to know one.

Levi sipped his wine and watched her. He hadn’t missed the slight flush to her cheeks when he raised his glass to hers. If anything it made her more beautiful. Gave her an innocence he was certain she didn’t possess. At that moment the small orchestra began to play and several more couples moved to the dance floor.

“Would you like to dance?” he asked.

She lifted her eyes to his and blinked. Pleased to see he had surprised her, he stood and held out his hand.

I’m not the small town bumpkin you thought I was.

She hesitated but only for a moment, then stood and placed her hand in his. He led her to the dance floor and deftly took her into his arms. She sucked in her breath. The small but audible sound pleased him. He watched the rise and fall of her chest as she strove to gain her footing. “Sorry, is my grip too tight?”

“No. No, it’s fine.”

She was lying. He was trained to know when someone wasn’t telling him the truth.

“You dance beautifully,” she said.

“You sound surprised.”

“I am. In New York, I went dancing often. You’d be surprised how few men can dance. Really well, I mean. Most of them have two left feet and by the end of the evening my toes would end up black and blue.”

Open and frank, her eyes held just a hint of laughter. His stomach lurched. That surprised him. That candid gaze of hers. He didn’t much like it. He liked it better when she played it coy. That he could deal with, because that’s who she really was. But this sweet innocent act was just that, an act. He deliberately twirled her hard and fast around another couple. She gasped and missed her footing. Daggers shot from her green eyes.

There she is. She couldn’t stand him. Well, that was fine with him. The feeling was mutual.
