It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday. To celebrate release week, I thought I would give you another teaser from Phantom Shadows that features Melanie and Bastien, the heroine and hero:
“Now, I know you don’t like to be touched,” she began.
What nit told her that? his inner voice screamed.
“But brace yourself.” She took a step closer. “Because I’m going to give you a hug.”
Don’t let her touch you! Not now! Not after that weird-ass conversation that left you fixated on her body and feeling all soft and mushy inside because she likes to see you laugh!
Stepping closer, she slipped her arms around his waist, pressed the front of her delectable body to the front of his, leaned her weight into him, and rested her cheek on his chest.
He closed his eyes. It felt wonderful. She felt wonderful.
Though he willed himself not to give in to temptation, he found himself wrapping his arms around her slight form and holding her tight.
Have a great weekend!
