Excerpt from LOVE’S DESIRE:

Hearing voices, Jacques turned to the stage where two women were standing at the top of the steps. It’s her. Excitement rushed through him seeing the stunning dancer who captivated him.

She was talking to another woman. They spoke softly but he heard her friend mutter, “There was some serious heat going on between you and the dark-haired guy at the head table. I’ve never seen you look at a man that way.”

The beauty tousled her hair and shrugged a shoulder while putting her foot on the first step, losing her balance in the process. Without thought, Jacques rushed to the steps just in time.

He reached out as she fell into his arms, their eyes locked together—but no words were spoken. He scanned her face as she bit the inside of her bottom lip.

“What the—” One of the male dancers was staring at him with a clenched jaw.

When the woman glanced up at Jacques again, she smiled, murmuring, “Thank you”. Their eyes remain locked together for what feels like forever before Jacques helped her stand upright. She lifted herself to her feet and walked up to the surly man glaring at Jacques, forcing him to turn away.

Excerpts from FINDING FAITH:

Glancing around, Faith got a feeling someone was watching her. Turning to the left, she was drawn to a pair of gorgeous hazel eyes looking at her. A flirtatious smile from the hot guy possessing them made her blush.

His mouth curled as if on the edge of laughter. He looked familiar. He had kind eyes, and even in a crowd, his presence was compelling.

Faith was instantly drawn to him and his infectious smile. He was the type of man she’d only read about in books and magazines. Guys like him didn’t exist, at least not in her life. She snickered when he abruptly looked away as though he’d been caught doing something he shouldn’t have.

Faith examined his profile—he was sharp and confident, two things she liked in a man. She gasped and her eyes grew when she realized who he was. 

Mindy looked up from her menu. “What’d I miss?”

Faith wrinkled her forehead and looked at the man. He was talking to the chef from dinner last night. Mindy’s gaze followed hers as the guys turned around, smiled, and nodded at them.

Faith put her hand to her mouth and whispered, “That’s the guy with the killer smile you wanted me to strip for.”
