Hello my friends! It's been a cold winter with tons of snow and unusual weather. I don't know about you but I'm ready for Spring. My newest White Rose release, New Beginnings, will be available this Friday, February 26th. And guess what? It is set on a warm Caribbean cruise. Just where I'd like to be about now. How about you?
About the story:
Security expert Adam Peyton wants a second chance with the woman who captured his heart and walked away with it several months ago. When he agrees to be her bodyguard on a Caribbean cruise, he takes the opportunity to do much more than just protect her.
When the man who has been haunting Cora Andrews' dreams for months walks back into her life, she must choose to release the pride holding them apart or risk losing him forever.
Will Adam have the new beginning with Cora he has been praying for?
Here's an excerpt:
Cora swept past him and out the door. She sensed him following behind her as she pressed the button to retrieve the elevator.
"You never know. It could turn out to be fun." Adam's familiar voice sent a wave of memories crashing into her.
"Fun?" She turned her wide eyes to him. "You mean like when you lied about who you are? Was that fun?"
"I didn't lie," Adam's voice lowered as he stepped into the elevator.
"You kept the truth from me. That's the same thing."
"Do we have to go through this again, Cora?" he asked with a sigh.
"Not if you leave me alone. But you won't do that will you? Harry asked you to go, so you will. Just like that?"
"I have to. It's my job."
"You've made that clear," Cora said with crisp, clipped words.
The elevator began its descent from the top floor toward the lobby. Adams' tall, masculine presence made the small room feel even smaller. She faced the doors and watched the numbers light up with each passing floor.
"Is it really that horrible that I'm coming with you?"
Cora met his eyes. "Harry has no right..."
"Let's not make this about Harry OK?" Adam's gaze seared into hers as he added, "Like you do everything else in your life."
She gasped. "I do not."
Cora ground her teeth and fisted her hands. She turned and sucked in a breath. Before she had a chance to say a word, Adam placed a warm, calloused finger on her lips, stepped close and whispered, "I'd like to do a lot of things with you. Fighting isn't one of them." He gently traced his finger along the contours of her lips as his eyes followed. The elevator chimed and the doors opened. Adam stepped back. "I'll see you next week."
