I’m a part of a Hot and Swoon Worthy blog hop with Book Boyfriends Café! Here’s the deal: we need to post an exchange that includes a swoon worthy line from the hero, so I thought this little piece from my urban fantasy romance, SHADOWS TILL SUNRISE, would do the trick…
“This time,” he whispered, threading his fingers through my hair, “I’m gonna get this out of the way.”
As he crushed his lips to mine, I grabbed at his shirt, fisting it. My body went limp as he slowly kissed me, making my bones turn to clay, just as if I were ready to be shaped any way he wanted me.
His lips were full, soft, and I answered him with as much languid fervor as he was giving me while he bunched his fingers in my hair, his other hand slipping to my waist and grasping it. As he slid his tongue into my mouth, I pressed against him. I might have even made a small, agitated sound when he ended the kiss, his mouth less than an inch from mine, so close that I could feel every warm word echo against me.
“Now,” he whispered, “I can concentrate with a clear head, cher.”
And, with that, Philippe Angier set me back on my feet, tweaking my chin and walking away.

Lilly Meratoliage used to be a villain—a ruthless guard for a power-hungry family who worshipped monsters. Burned in a fire as punishment after a failed mission, she was left scarred and desolate. Now, healed by a bayou witch who has given Lilly a pair of white magic boots, Lilly is ready for redemption, charged with tracking down a phantom who has already killed twice and is aiming to add to his list. It’s just too bad those charmed boots must feed off Lilly, robbing her of her short-term memory every night in order to keep them both strong. And it’s too bad that she’ll need to work side-by-side with a man who has already betrayed her…
