Weekend Writing Warriors #34!

Greetings, friends! Happy Sunday! Once again, I'm sharing another excerpt from Crossing the Line, continuing from where we left off last week. 

Here's the blurb:
Madison Kelly is an erotic romance author from Canada on her way to her first ever writing conference. Across the border. A trunk full of dirty books and dildos proves enough to amp up her nerves and make her lips flap faster than the maple leaf flag.
But she's not going anywhere until George Petropoulos gives the go-ahead.
The Greek god of a border guard has something other than national security in mind when he detains this particular citizen. He can’t help but be charmed by the juxtaposition between her stammering blushes and the racy books she writes.
A hot and heavy interrogation brings out her inner sex goddess, one that she’s been hiding in the pages of her books, and leaves them both wanting more. But will they be brave enough to cross the line again? 

And here's the excerpt: 

“Umm. Is this a trick question?”
He slid closer to her and his mouth curved into a smile. “So, your books look…good.”
She almost preened until she remembered who he was and where she was. “Good how?”
The hand burning a hole in her jeans climbed higher, right along with her heart rate. “You know, if you ever need a cover model…I could probably help you out with that.” 

Thanks a bunch for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors

I just received word that Crossing the Line will be releasing in March of 2015. Soooo hold on to that enthusiasm! lol. Hope I'm still participating in the WWW then and I can share the exciting news with you. But for now, I'll just continue prematurely building your excitement. :D I really appreciate all the support every week. It means the world to me. Wishing you all a fantastic day!
