Hi Everyone!

 

Thanks for hopping over to find more Scavenger Hunt answers for our New Year’s Day Scavenger Hunt!

 

While Tegan, our heroine in Beg Me to Slay, struggles to keep her dojo afloat, she rejects any monetary help from her wealthy parents who live in the La Costa resort near the golf course. Here is one of my favorite scenes while Gabe and Tegan attend her birthday party at her parent’s house. She doesn’t want them to know her attacker is back in town and worry about her, so she introduces Gabe as a “friend”, but her parents assume they’re dating and the charade gets away from themโ€ฆ

Excerpt:

He shouldn’t have kissed her. Even on the cheek. He’d fucked

up the second his lips brushed her skin. Royally. He’d misjudged

his own control over his attraction for his client. Not Tegan, his

client. His client who was being hunted by a Hingo demon.

But he’d seen her face afterward, her eyes, and he’d have

sworn she’d enjoyed it, too.

Damn it. Now he felt like a complete asshole. And worse

yet, he still wanted her. He had no business wondering what her

mouth would taste like or how her hands would feel sliding up

his chest.

This was his fault. When had he forgotten this was not actually

a date? Rookie mistake.

“There you are.” He turned to find Nancy reaching for him.

“We lost our honored guest.”

He gestured to the stairs, watching Tegan. “She’s on her way.”

With every step, her gaze stayed locked on his. He should

break the connection and save what was left of his pride, but

seeing her with the moonlight on her hair, her dress revealing

bare shoulders that begged to be kissed, he couldn’t look away.

He was so screwed.

The crowd parted as Tegan came through, walking directly

toward him. His pulse quickened in anticipation.

Of what, God only knew. Maybe that was part of what made

this woman so irresistible.

Now standing toe-to-toe with him, her hands slid across his

abdomen and around his waist. She rose up on the balls of her

feet, her eyes on his. Her lips parted, drawing him closer, and her

whisper brushed over his mouth.

“Kiss me.”

He brought his hands up, not letting himself do anything but

obey, and buried his fingers in her silky hair, his lips claiming hers.

Her tongue slid past his lips. Deep in the back of his throat he

growled with desire. She tasted like honey and raindrops. Heaven

right there in his arms.

Applause broke the kiss.

He glanced at the crowd and smiled. Tegan turned around

slowly. He could see the blush creeping up her cheeks. Taking her

hand he addressed the other guests. “Sorry about that, but her

birthday kiss couldn’t wait any longer.”

Her mother laughed along with the rest of the crowd, easing

the tension. Tegan’s fingers stayed laced with his, leaving him to

wonder what the hell had just happened.

Trying to second-guess Tegan was like trying to track a

tornado.

A tornado he had no business chasing.
