Kidnapped Hearts, Band of Friends Book 1 Excerpt
“You can be mad at me, but don’t you take your beef out on Pamela,” Steve growled.
Celine’s eyes misted. “You’re right. You’re the asshole. I’m sorry Pamela.” I’m out of here.” She tossed her napkin on the table, grabbed her purse, and stepped over the chain link fence, separating the patio from the sidewalk, her heels tapping on the concrete as she trotted away.
Pamela slumped in her chair. “For heaven’s sakes.”
“You gonna go after ______?” Paul asked Steve.
“No.” He chugged the beer, dropped the empty mug back to the table, and took off.
“Damn, the sexual tension that flows off them is stifling.” Jake rubbed Pamela’s hand. “Are you okay?”
Jot down the missing word. And don’t forget to check caitjarrod.com for the next site.
Raffle for Cait Jarrod’s ebook copy of Kidnapped Hearts and Aubrey Wynne’s ebook copy of Merry Christmas, Henry will run until the 24th
About the Author
As a child, I entertained myself for hours playing pretend, but not with dolls and such. I created stories and pictured them in my mind, sometimes even acted them out, my well preserved secret until now. I spent years after leaving school trying to figure out my niche. Not being a literary enthusiast, I never thought my childhood pastime would lead in this direction.
In life, one door closes and another opens, so I’m told. This was true for me. I lost my mother, my best friend, to cancer. After a year without her, I picked up her favorite hobby…reading. After one book, a romantic suspense, I was hooked. In the past, I’d fall asleep after a few minutes of reading. Now, books rank up there with a good red wine. It didn’t take long for my childhood muse to come back in adult version urging me to put the scenes in my head on paper.
Why do I write romantic suspense? I love writing and creating the meet-cue (the point where the hero and heroine meet) to the blossoming of the romance. Add a suspenseful plot or a good mystery to the equation and the perfect book is born to curl up to and lose yourself in, taking you away from reality, troubles.
I hope I have provided you with the escape similar to the ones I conjured in childhood and rediscovered as an adult, and I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I have loved creating them.
