Spotlight on Romantic Suspense: “She Can Tell,” by Melinda Leigh (Montlake Romance)
He didn’t react to her quip. His gaze reflected the pain of her confession. “It won’t happen to you.”
How did he do that? How did he know what was going on in her head?
“Here’s hoping.” She washed the pill down with the rest of her milk. “Let’s go in the den.”
“If you’re hitting on me,” Mike resisted, “drugged women in pain aren’t on my list of turn-ons.”
“Get your mind out of the gutter, He-Man. You’re hot and everything, but sex is the last thing on my mind tonight.” She stopped in front of his chair. The thought of being alone again was a ball of unbearable emptiness behind her breastbone.
“You think I’m hot.” He grinned up at her.
Her face heated. “Don’t let it go to your head.”
Good luck to Melinda and all our Golden Leaf finalists!
