 Welcome! It's bargain day on my blog today! Giving April's Kiss in the Moonlight -- a 250-page sweet contemporary romance -- one of my favorite books, a spot in the limelight. It's a sweet romance which means no sex but one helluva story filled with sexual tension, a real roller coaster ride, including a couple of bad guys who will curl your hair. It's up for grabs for a couple of days for $.99 only. Here's a snippet:

          April dried her long, lustrous, dark brown hair, which fell to her shoulders in loose curls framing her bruised oval face. Her eyes, so dark they were almost black, reflected her troubles. Her black eye was turning yellow and the bruise on her delicate chin matched it.
She wrapped a towel around her body and tucked the corner in between her breasts, picked up her hair dryer and opened the bathroom door. She walked into the living room and ran smack dab into the best looking man she‟d ever seen coming around the corner. She bumped into him and grabbed her towel to secure it. He steadied her with his big hands on her elbows as his gaze met hers. They stopped and stared. April felt a sizzle, like an electric current rise up her arms and shoulders from the touch of his hands.
         Standing about six feet tall with a slender but strong build, the intriguing stranger had the bluest eyes and darkest hair imaginable.
         His eyebrows were thick, sideburns perfectly clipped and two days growth of beard appeared on his long, narrow face. She couldn‟t take her eyes off him.
         Gavin‟s gaze took in her glossy brown hair, lovely face, black-and-blue marks and all, then traveled down her towel-clad body slowly, stopping to rest on the swell of her breasts above the towel before sliding down to examine her lovely legs. Heat traveled through his hands and up his arms. He was obviously entranced and rendered speechless by her five feet four inches normally attractive, now painfully colorful. His eyebrows lifted as he eyed her bruised shoulders.
       “What happened to you?” he muttered, dropping his hands from her arms.
       “Got in the way of an explosion,” she explained.
       He nodded, then eyed the engagement ring on her hand.
       “Gavin Dailey,” he said, extending his hand.
      “April McKenna.”
      Her hands were too full to shake his and as she looked down at them, she remembered she was wearing only a towel. Her hand flew to secure the towel's precarious tuck at her chest while her face flamed. She sputtered something unintelligible and ran from the room, hearing the sound of his low chuckle behind her.
