Tempting Teaser: If You See Her by Shiloh Walker

If You See Her“I’m not here because I’m trying to run you out of town,” he finally said, when he thought he might be able to say it in a somewhat level voice.

With that doubt still glinting in her pale green eyes, she jerked one shoulder in a shrug.  “Fine.  Then whatever you’re doing here, would you please just get it done?  Please?  So you can leave?”

Something moved inside him.  It might have been anger.  Might have been wounded pride.  Might have been frustration…or all of the above.  “Just get it over with?” he repeated, some of his tension edging into his voice.

“Yes.”  She swallowed.  “Please.”

“So polite.  Even when you’re that pissed off at me.  Still so polite,” he murmured.  “Okay, Hope.  I’ll get it over with.”

Then he closed the two feet between them.  He wanted to touch her…fuck it, he wanted it so bad, he hurt with it, ached with it, would have gone to his knees and begged if he thought it would have done any good.

Instead, he jammed one hand into a pocket, closed it in a fist.

The other, he used the tip of his finger and used it to lift her chin.

He had just a second to see her eyes flare wide before he dipped his head and brushed his mouth against hers.  Just the lightest brush–hardly enough to even get a taste.

Still, that one taste blistered through him, rushed through him, setting his blood to boil.

He heard her gasp, felt it…and as her lips parted against his, he wanted, desperately to tease that slight opening with his tongue, see if he couldn’t coax her mouth into opening for him, just a little more.

Instead, he whispered against her lips, “I’ve wanted to do that from the first second I laid eyes on you.”

Then he turned around, and without looking at her again, he left the kitchen.

He didn’t stop to say anything to Law, didn’t stop until he was in his car with the seatbelt fastened.  And even then, he wouldn’t let himself look back, wouldn’t let himself look and see, if maybe, just maybe, she had come to watch him leave.

    I enjoy Shiloh’s books and would recommend them to anyone and this new series of hers is just as good.

    Great teaser! I have this series on my wish list. I didn’t realize they come out so close together–I should bump the first book to my currently reading list asap!

    I just finished reading the first book. I loved it :D I didn’t know that all the books were going to be connected. When I finished I was confused for a sec. I’m just happy it didn’t end on a terrible cliffhanger…I would’ve HATED that. I like where it ended and I can’t wait for this one to come out :)

      I didn’t know they were connected either. As I was getting close to the end of the first book, I started wondering how she was going to wrap it up in such a short amount of time.

        Me too! I can’t decide if this is a pro or con with ereaders but I know that if I had a hard copy, I would’ve probably knew the end was coming a lot closer than I did with the ereader.

        I know that my nook tells me what page i am out of the total pages but I was so absorb in the story that I didn’t even glance at it. When I was done, I searched to see when the next book comes out and I did a lil happy dance in my head cuz today’s already the 28th. And to wrap up my day I saw that you guys have teaser up! How awesome is that? :)

          Great timing! ;)

          I still have a hard time adjusting to having to look to see how far along I am on an ereader. I’m not sure I’ll ever truly adjust.
