New Jersey Romance Writer’s annual “Put Your Heart in a Book” Conference is weeks away! To help share our excitement, we’ll shine the spotlight on one of our Golden Leaf finalists each day leading up to 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 award ceremony on October 16, 2015.
Spotlight on Contemporary: “All or Nothing,” by Cheri Allan (Self-published)
It was a nice chest as bare chests went. A light smattering of hair without being all Sasquatch, and the muscles in his shoulders and in that yummy front area were lean and sinewy without being bulky.
Yes, she was salivating, but she was hungry, and Ian was half naked in front of her.
If the room didn’t smell like fake vanilla air freshener and turkey gravy, it might have been somewhat erotic.
She hurriedly wiped her hands clean and took the T-shirt. “Thanks.”
His lips twisted in amusement. “You’re welcome.”
He stood there, staring at her and, frankly, her staring at him for a few moments longer than strictly necessary to transfer a T-shirt from one hand to another, long enough for Bailey to wonder if he expected her to pull her own shirt off in front of him and change while he was still in the room.
Long enough for her to consider doing just that.
