The annual NJRW “Put Your Heart in a Book” Conference is less than a month away! To help share our excitement, we’ll shine the spotlight on one of our Golden Leaf finalists each day until the conference.
The Golden Leaf is awarded annually for excellence in romance fiction by authors who are NJRW members or in Romance Writers of America (RWA) Region One. Winners will be announced during the NJRW Put Your Heart in a Book Conference held October 18-19, 2013.
Spotlight on Romantic Suspense: “Double Danger,” by Dee Davis (Grand Central)
“You’ve always had my back.” Simon leaned closer, framing her face with his hands. Jillian tried to ignore the feel of his skin against hers, but memory surfaced, and she caught her breath, waiting.
“I just reacted in the moment,” she whispered. “I couldn’t bear the thought of losing you.”
The minute the words were out, she regretted them. But he took them as an invitation, his lips closing on hers. And for just a moment, she allowed herself the pleasure, the horrors of the last few days receding against the power of their attraction.
In the circle of his arms she felt safe.
She’d been here before. And she knew the cost was too high. She’d only just found herself again. And she’d sworn that she wouldn’t let anyone take that away. Not even Simon.
Especially not Simon.
Good luck to Dee and all our Golden Leaf finalists!
