Brady Scott, Tortured Hero ~ #SixSunday #OneNightwithaHero

Happy Sunday everyone! First, I've got four prizes available at two blog hop posts (Christmas Wishes and Entangled Under the Mistletoe) right now, so check them out! Second, here are six sentences from my contemporary romance, One Night with a Hero. Hero Brady Scott is with his best friend Marco Vieri (the hero of Her Forbidden Hero) as he reacts to some devastating news.

Breathing hard, Brady fell back against the wall and braced his hands on his knees. He wrestled the frenzied emotion back into a box and locked it tight. The extrication felt like a surgery that hadn’t healed. That never would. He used the raw ache to center himself.

 Finally, he raised his gaze to Marco, whose eyes held no reproach, no censure, only an understanding born of a lifetime of being on the front lines of Brady’s life.
