on thin ice
Welcome to this week’s snippet for Weekend Writing Warriors of my newest release, On Thin Ice. I hope you enjoy the excerpt, and I’d love to know what you think in the comments.
Kit cursed under his breath at the interruption, but he swept his fingertips over the keyboard while he kept his gaze up on the large screen. He wasn’t sure what he’d do since Regina wasn’t here. Before Michael, his boss had never sent her to other locations.
He grimaced when he recognized the man on the screen, Colonel Jones… their boss. Jones wasn’t Kit’s favorite person, especially with Michael gaining recognition and acceptance over Kit. Kit had been the one working hard for years now whereas Michael was brand new to the job.
“Kit, I have a new assignment for you,” Jones said, leaning toward the screen, probably trying to intimidate. That wasn’t anything new, just the way he came across.
This month, I’m trying a couple new things. One of which is Weekend Writing Warriors with snippets of my newest release, On Thin Ice. I hope you enjoy the excerpt, and I’d love to know what you think in the comments.
Kit leaned back in his chair before the large monitors. Ever since Regina met Michael, things were different around the Hub. Jealousy gnawed at Kit. However, there was no chance of having her to himself, and she’d chosen Michael. That hurt, but he’d dealt with his emotions by trying out various new hobbies. None of them had worked.
His gaze dropped to the control panel, and he typed in a few words, zeroing in on Regina’s and Michael’s comm-links. The temptation to listen in toyed with him, but the blaring alarm took the decision away.
Thank you for joining me for the first My Sexy Saturday! This week, I’m sharing a sexy snippet from On Thin Ice, which just came out on Thursday. It’s the second book in my Super Powered superhero series.
I’d love to hear what you think in the comments section!
Excerpt from Chapter One
“Why are you following me?” He took off his baseball hat and ran his hand through his hair before putting the cap back on. “You should be inside with the others. The police will want to talk with you.”
“I wanted to thank you. How did you know to come?” She couldn’t resist her draw to him. Like a lightning bolt, realization struck her. She knew where she’d seen him before. She’d dreamt of him.
“The police will be arriving soon enough. I came because it was the right thing to do.” He turned, but she reached out, touching his arm. Solid muscle hid beneath the surface of his skin. Holy crap, was she really checking him out when she’d been in a robbery moments ago? Yet she couldn’t help herself.
He slid his gaze her way, not breaking the contact between them. Just stayed there as if experiencing the same spark she was.
“I’m sorry,” Erica said, pulling away after a moment. “I guess –”
“You’re still in shock. It’s okay.” He smiled, and the gesture lit his entire face. “Go back to the store. It’s safer in there.”
She didn’t know about that. She liked being here with him, but he was right. The police would want to hear her description of what happened. Besides, she didn’t want to walk home after that. She’d rather call a cab.
