#SixSunday #53 - An offer she can't refuse...

Happy Sunday everyone! Since I'm celebrating the one-year publication anniversary of my award-winning contemporary romance HEARTS IN DARKNESS, I thought I'd share a favorite six sentences from that book. Stuck in the dark elevator for nearly four hours, Caden has just made Makenna an offer she can't refuse...
Makenna’s head grew dizzy from the promise of what Caden was offering. She couldn’t believe she was even considering it, but her body screamed at her for thinking she might turn him down. She nodded her face against his.

“Tell me, Red, you gotta say it out loud. I can’t see your face or your eyes, and I don’t want to make any mistakes here.”

If she’d been just a little unsure a moment ago, she wasn’t any longer.
What was Caden's offer? Well, to find that out, you know what you have to do! Ahem.
Thru 4/23, buy for .99 at Amazon | B&N
To celebrate the book's birthday, I'm giving away six cool prizes. Go here to enter!
