Delicate Little Flower

I shared a snippit in my September newsletter. Here it is in case you missed it:

Snippit from Bear’s Perfect Match, book 2 in the Nightfair Shifters (this is a rough draft, and is unedited):

The door to the bar opened, and Eli glanced over to see who was entering. The sexiest woman he’d ever seen paused in the doorway. Her dark brown skin was the color of rich chocolate. Her hair was a riot of curls that danced around her head. Her clothes hugged her curves, and she strode in with confidence, as if she was right where she belonged.

His body immediately responded. For a moment everything froze. He blinked, sure he was imagining things. Women who looked like that didn’t cross paths with guys like him.

“See something you like?” Tyrone said in a knowing voice and tapped the bottom of Eli’s chin.

Eli realized his jaw had dropped open and he closed it shut with a snap. He turned his attention to Tyrone and gave the other man an irritated look. “I don’t know what you’re talking about,” he growled.

“You can glare all you like,” Tyrone said with a sly smile. “But I know you. You’re all snarl and no bite.”

“Shut up,” Eli grumbled.

“You’re just a delicate little flower,” Tyrone teased in a syrupy tone. “You’d better put your chair on all fours before you fall over and hurt yourself.”
