The annual NJRW “Put Your Heart in a Book” Conference is less than six weeks away! This year, we have two Golden Leaf Hall of Fame recipients. This achievement is awarded to a published author who has won three times in the same category. Presentation of the prestigious Hall of Fame award will be done during the NJRW Put Your Heart in a Book Conference award ceremony on October 17, 2014.
Over the next several days, we will spotlight these award-winning books.
Spotlight on Romantic Suspense: “Deadly Dance,” by Dee Davis (Grand Central), Golden Leaf winner 2012
“Hannah?” Harrison’s voice was so low that at first she thought she’d imagined it. “I couldn’t sleep.”
“Me either.” She shook her head, rising to her feet, tipping her head back so that she could see his eyes. “I’m sorry about earlier. I was just trying…”
He shook his head, covering her lips with his finger. “No more talk.” Then he bent his head, replacing the finger with his mouth, his lips hard against hers, taking possession. Hannah’s stomach lurched as he threaded his fingers through hers, her desire rising as their kiss intensified.
He lifted his hands, carrying hers with them until her arms were over her head, his body pressing against hers, the bricks from her house cold against her back. She knew she should stop him, but she didn’t pull away. Truth was, she just wanted to forget, to escape into the silent seduction of his kiss.
