Book Hooks is a weekly meme hosted by Marketing for Romance Writers as part of the MFRW Authors Blog. It's a chance each week for you the reader to discover current WIP or previously published book by possibly new to you authors.
Today, I am showcasing a snippet from my newly released romance - Two Truths and a Lie.
The beginning of the evening went as planned, which means nothing happened. I served drinks, wandering around with a silver tray with flutes of sparkling champagne resting on it. People snatched drinks without so much as a thank you, and some deposited empty glasses with a sneer of disgust that they had to do something so menial.
I, repeatedly, and accidentally―not―passed Lover Boy. I didn’t know his real name, I'd just nicknamed him Lover Boy. Not very original I know, but Loverboy's 1981 hit, Turn Me Loose, had been playing on the radio on the bus that drove all the servers to tonight's gig. So, I guess that's why it was the first thing that popped into my head.
He accepted several glasses, each time with a sparkle in his eye and a smile on his lips. I found myself staring at him from across the room. Not good. I couldn't let him make me lose my objective. The type of clients I have don't accept failure as an option. And Lover Boy made me lose my focus even though he wasn't doing anything more than existing.
Drat. Could he be any sexier?
A shiver raced down my spine as he lifted his glass to his mouth and swallowed the last of his drink.
The tray started to tilt. I grabbed it. Concentrate. Keep it together. Get your head out of your panties.
BlurbThe legend of Robin Hood and Maid Marian with a twenty-first-century twist. If you love hot, billionaire romances, then this is a must read.
From the author of the Two Hearts One Love Trilogy, multi-published, hot romance author Daryl Devoré's latest book revolves around deceit, betrayal, passion and the theft of a multi-million-dollar, rare, red diamond.
As if multiple planes crashes, a car accident, and a concussion isn’t enough, carefree Byn and straight-laced billionaire, Mark clash over Byn's need for independence and Mark's struggle with guilt pushing him in the opposite direction of love. When an art forger, an art thief and a ninety-year-old woman get involved the chance for true love for Byn and Mark fades.
All is lost until a children's game is their only hope.
