A Passionate Kiss and Giveaway!

Hi All!

I’ve had a blast collaborating with my author friends Candace Shaw and Delaney Diamond to bring you our new book series – The Bennett Triplets – which is now available! The triplets, Mason, Harper and Cameron, own the hottest night club in Atlanta. While overseeing the operations of Club Masquerade, they each find love when they least expect.

You don’t want to miss out on this series! NOTE: The stories take place at the same time and can be read in any order.

Not only are the books available, but we have a fun scavenger hunt giveaway too! But first, here’s another little peek at my contribution to the series – A PASSIONATE KISS.

About A Passionate Kiss

apassionatekiss-2-small

Retired Marine, Mason Bennett, has two goals: adjust to civilian life and keep drama out of it. His focus is on his role as part-owner, along with his siblings, of Atlanta’s hottest nightclub. However, his attention shifts when the woman he has loved like a sister reenters his life and thoughts of a passionate kiss they shared hijacks his mind. Their connection is explosive. Feelings he’s tried to deny come to the forefront, and he’s tempted to do something he thought he would never do—cross that line from friends to lovers.

TV news anchor, London Alexander, is back home in Atlanta and ready to start a new chapter in her life. This time she hopes her future includes Mason, the man she has loved forever. She’s ready to step over the forbidden line that he’s drawn in their relationship.

Will taking a chance on love lead to a happily-ever-after? Or will risking their friendship leave them both with broken hearts?

Excerpt:

“Did I tell you how beautiful you looked tonight?”

“You might have mentioned it a time or two.”

They stood there, staring into each other’s eyes, and London wondered what he was thinking. She knew he wasn’t planning to change his mind about their next steps—they both were more than ready—but she wasn’t sure what to make of his hesitation.

“God, you mean so much to me.” His voice was thick with emotion.

Her body tightened with desire. “I feel the same about you.”

It seemed he wanted to say more and opened his mouth, but closed it just as fast. Sometimes she didn’t know what to make of him, but right now was not one of those times. The love shining in his eyes was so intense, London could feel it deep in her soul. He didn’t need to say anything more.

She stepped out of his hold and reached for the zipper of her dress, but Mason pulled her back to him.

“I’ll take care of that for you.” His voice was low and sexy, his warm breath a feather against her neck. “I’ve been waiting all night to get you out of this dress.”

While we patiently wait for August 26th, here’s a sneak peek at A PASSIONATE KISS.

Retired Marine, Mason Bennett, has two goals: adjust to civilian life and keep drama out of it. His focus is on his role as part-owner, along with his siblings, of Atlanta’s hottest nightclub. However, his attention shifts when the woman he has loved like a sister reenters his life and thoughts of a passionate kiss they shared hijacks his mind. Their connection is explosive. Feelings he’s tried to deny come to the forefront, and he’s tempted to do something he thought he would never do—cross that line from friends to lovers.

TV news anchor, London Alexander, is back home in Atlanta and ready to start a new chapter in her life. This time she hopes her future includes Mason, the man she has loved forever. She’s ready to step over the forbidden line that he’s drawn in their relationship.

Will taking a chance on love lead to a happily-ever-after? Or will risking their friendship leave them both with broken hearts?

Excerpt:

Who is she?

Mason rubbed his chin, hoping she’d glance into the camera so he could see her face clearly. There was something so familiar about her. As if reading his mind, she turned her head slightly and he sucked in a breath. Large expressive eyes, high cheekbones, and a mouth he would never forget was on full display. He’d recognize those gorgeous lips anywhere.

But something wasn’t right. Something had her spooked.

“Ham, hold up. I know her. I’m on my way,” Mason said into his mouthpiece and hurried to the stairs.

He was a little surprised Hamilton hadn’t recognized London Alexander, Harper’s best friend. From what Mason understood, she had been to the club plenty of times when Mason’s parents managed the facility and Hamilton worked security.

Seconds later, Mason slowed and London met his gaze. Guilt stabbed him in the chest. She was the last person he should be looking at with interest, but damn if she didn’t look sexy in the fitted red tank top and black leggings molded around her narrow hips and shapely legs. Considering it was early afternoon on a weekday, he was surprised to see her, and in running gear at that.

“Mase,” she breathed, her husky voice feeling like a feather brushing against his skin.

Mason heard a little wheezing coming from her, but she didn’t look as if she was having an asthma attack, something she suffered with when they were kids. Still staring, what he couldn’t get over was how different she looked. She never wore her hair super long, but the last time he’d seen her, it brushed her shoulders. Now the pixie cut transformed her whole appearance, the style seeming as if it were made for her.

When her hand went to her chest, as if trying to catch her breath, and she glanced back at the door, all of Mason’s protective instincts kicked in.

“What’s wrong?” He touched her arm. She was shivering. “What happened?”
