Hello everyone! Elodie, thanks so much for having me on today.
I want to send my best wishes to all for a wonderful holiday season and may all your dreams come true in the New Year!
I'm celebrating my new paranormal romance Love Entwined with a never-before-seen excerpt. In this excerpt, Amelie is wandering the drafty old halls of St. Clair Manor. With over a hundred rooms to roam, you never know who you might bump into.
Run, little witch…
Amelie Laurent is on her way to the top of the jewelry designing world with no time for men. Her orderly life is about to come undone when jewelry tycoon Roman Cardiff steals her away on assignment to a remote English estate. Roman wants Amelie all to himself but St. Clair Manor’s resident ghost has been waiting for her much longer than he has.
An unseen gunman takes a shot at Roman and he blames a business rival. But Amelie and Roman are to blame, for falling in love 200 years before in a time neither of them remember.
From the heartbreak of pre-Revolutionary France to modern day corporate wars, Amelie and Roman uncover a history of blood jewels, lust and demons.
Good witch, bad witch, you must decide…
When Amelie discovers her inner witch she learns the real reason she was summoned to St. Clair Manor. Il Dragone will kill to get her back. Amelie will kill if they do.
Read the never before seen excerpt:
Can one get lost in a suite? She thought.
There was yet another door at the other end of the sitting room, which probably led to the hallway. She walked past brown leather armchairs and an antique writing desk and opened the door.
Roman stood with his back to her near a huge tester bed, a towel wrapped around his waist. His shoulder muscles bunched as he dried his hair with a smaller cloth. He turned toward her and his jaw clenched.
He looked like he wanted to swallow her whole.
She drew a sharp breath and dropped her gaze to his chest, which was sprinkled with glistening curls.
“I am sorry. I wanted Anne…I mean, I wanted bubble bath. There isn’t any in the bathroom. I thought this was the hallway…” She had backed up against the wall, looking for the door. She took in a gulp of air to push her heart back down her throat.
He tossed the towel on the bed and started a lazy stroll toward her as if it were the most natural thing for him to be wearing nothing but that towel around his waist. She tore her eyes away from flat brown nipples and black hair running down the middle of his chest and disappearing under the towel.
When he stopped, his chest was inches from her face. She instinctively drew in the fresh scent of soap and her eyes met his. Leaning her head against the wall, she held her breath when his hand moved slowly behind her. He bent his head and his lips brushed her hair when he spoke into the intercom.
“Anne, Amelie would like a bubble bath.” He brought his arm down and his biceps worked in a fascinating play of muscles. “She will be up in a few minutes.”
She had no idea how long she’d been staring at biceps and ridged abs ending in a tantalizing trail of hair under the towel at his waist but she jerked her eyes away. Heated embarrassment crept up over her sweater collar. Without turning, she searched the wall behind her for the doorknob.
Roman leaned closer.
She went still as the wet warmth of his skin enveloped her.
