Camden Piotrowski is justifiably upset to find her boyfriend in the arms of another woman. But it’s not the end of her world and definitely not something that a bubble bath, good wine, and cookie dough won’t help. Her pity party is interrupted when handsome Seth Vendetti bursts into her bathroom. She soon discovers that her world and those in it are not as they seem. Can she trust Seth’s version of the truth and make him realize that even he has something to lose?
I hadn’t really thought of it like that, but I’m not backing down. I put my hands on my hips as well and stand on my tippy toes so that my face is close to his. I could use those three-inch heels right about now, but I hold my ground. His body is tight. I see his pulse beating in his neck.
“Call it what you want. Just get out of my house.”
His hands move behind my neck. He pulls me to him and before I even know what’s happening, he’s kissing me and even more surprising, I’m kissing him, too. His strong fingers move up and down my back as his lips work their magic on mine. I thought I’d been kissed before, but never have I been kissed like this. I still don’t see fireworks, instead I am the firework. Heat explodes from my lips down my throat and to the rest of my body. This isn’t the warmth of fairy tales where the prince and princess kiss their happily-ever-after. This is the battle of the dragon and I don’t know what because my brain is no longer working.
His stubble scratches my chin and the sensation kindles the fire even more. My stomach lurches and I feel weightless, light as a feather now, falling from high in the sky. His hands move to my hips and he pulls me to him tightly. He kisses my chin and then my neck and down to the opening of my robe.
It’s like I wake up from some out-of-body experience to find myself full of lust and clinging to a complete stranger. His hand slips into my robe. I startle and jump back, hugging myself with one hand, the other covering my mouth as my eyes go wide in complete disbelief.
Something to Loss is available at Amazon starting May 7th
What was the first book you remember making an indelible impression on you?
I read all the Nancy Drew mysteries when I was a kid. I’ve loved mysteries ever since.
If you could only eat one food the rest of your life, what would it be?
Pizza, for sure. It has almost all the food groups.
Hey. You’re right. If you were a shifter, what animal would you like to be?
A dog—at least a dog who lives in our house. What a life!
Ah. The life of a spoiled pet. What’s your favorite season and why?
Fall. I love the crisp air and the fall activities (pumpkin carving, hay rides, etc.). My husband makes fun of me because he says that fall is when everything dies.
What do you think is the best movie ever made?
It’s a tie between Forrest Gump and Braveheart. They have everything. We watch them with commercials when we see them on television, even though we own both the DVDs.
