Dangerous Desire by Annie Seaton Excerpt & Giveaway


A desperate search…
Schoolteacher Gracie James has never seen more danger than her kindergarten grade classroom, but when she goes searching for her missing sister, she’s thrown into a world of sex, crime...and passion. Following a hot lead, she sneaks onto a stranger’s boat—and gets caught. Their one-sided conversation convinces her of two things. One: the guy is seriously sexy. Two: he knows something about her sister. Oh, yeah. And did she mention he’s sexy?
And a sizzling attraction…
Jake Alexander, former cop, is staking out a yacht brimming with criminal activity, for an insurance company, when a woman, dressed to kill and totally irresistible, stumbles into his dangerous undercover op. If he hadn’t tackled her, she’d have tottered straight onto the questionable yacht in those ridiculous high heels. Then she’d be dead. Or worse. As much as he’d like to kick her off his boat, he can’t risk her going off on some hare-brained scheme—but he can’t keep her around to muck up his job. Oh, yeah. And did he mention she’s distracting as hell?
Lead to dangerous desire…
Unfortunately, she has a keen mind of her own. And a body any man would die for. Jake’s attempt to keep Gracie safe quickly morphs into a reluctant alliance. And a whole lot more... But Gracie finds herself knee deep in more trouble than she bargained for, with secrets revealed and the criminals coming after her. Unless they find a way to trust each other, they’re finished. Oh, yeah. And did they mention they’re in love?

“No way. I’m not going anywhere on this boat.” Her voice was rising and he shushed her.
“Keep your voice down. This boat is supposed to be empty.”
“You’re starting to scare me. What’s the big deal? What do you know?” Even though she spoke slowly, her voice conveyed her fear to him. “Why so secretive, Jake? You’re making me worry even more about Regan.”
“Look if it makes you feel any better, I know what I’m doing. I‘ll tell you more later,” he replied tersely. “I just don’t have a good feeling about what’s going on that boat, but I do know you need to keep out of it.”
“So what happens now? I want to get off and you’re not going to let me?” she asked. “Mexican standoff?”
“I’m going to keep taking photos for a few hours until it quiets down for the night.” He reached for the camera with the biggest lens and moved up to the hatch above the saloon, stretching to his full height as the top of his head cleared the small space. He turned and grinned at her. “You can sit there and wait or there’s a pair of binoculars on the shelf behind you if you really want to check out what goes down on the Midas.”
Gracie ignored him and his lame attempt at a joke, obviously reluctant to witness any more of the behavior that she had seen from the back of the boat, confirming for him that her come on had simply been to get what she wanted.
Of course it was.
But after a while she picked the binoculars up and slid off the seat.

Annie Seaton lives with her husband, and ‘Bob’ the dog and two white cats in a house next to the beach on the east coast of Australia. She sits in her writing chair, gazing at the ocean and writing stories.  Their two children are grown and married and she loves spending time gardening, walking on the beach and spoiling her two grandchildren. She has always been fascinated by all things romantic and has found her niche in life writing romance novels, ranging through contemporary, historical, suspense and paranormal...but all with romance of course.
Her love of reading and history began at an early age and she was a child who always carried a book (or two) no matter what she was doing. Several of her favourite books were confiscated from beneath her desk by teachers who had no understanding of her capacity to read while she was doing her schoolwork!
Her working life has seen her through several major career changes and Annie has now retired from the world of full time work and has fulfilled her lifelong dream of becoming a published author.
Annie’s debut full length novel, Holiday Affair, a contemporary romance set in the South Pacific was released as part of Entangled Publishing’s Indulgence line in March 2012 and has been a bestseller on both Amazon, and Barnes and Noble. The sequel Italian Affair was released in June 2013, and will be followed shortly by Outback Affair. Annie has more books being released in 2013 and 2014 with Entangled Publishing in the Bliss, Entangled Ignite and Covet imprints.
In appreciation of the supportive author community, Annie has written a book on promotion to share the secrets of her success: Promotional Tips and Tricks for Aspiring Authors in the Digital Landscape.
