Weekend Writing Warriors #76!

Hello, my friends! You're all looking lovely today! :D Welcome back to another exciting week of reading and writing and commenting and all that jazz. It seems I'm a bit of a release tramp this month so I'm changing tracks again to share an excerpt from Crossing the Line which will be available in all its glory this 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 heeeeere's an excerpt!
“How long will you be out of the country?”
If she’d been writing their story, right around this point George would pin his smoldering gaze on her and she’d answer in a breathy voice, ‘Why, you gonna miss me, hot stuff?’ And then he’d smile and tell her it was time for a strip search. And she’d sigh and blush and pretend it was such a chore for him to pat her down in places that so needed to be patted down.
Fantasy George had her pinned to the table before real-life George put a stop to it in the most effective way possible: he pressed a warm palm to her bouncing knee.
“What are you thinking about?” he whispered. 
“Umm. Is this a trick question?”

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors! 

Check out this beautiful cover for Crossing the Line! Couldn't be happier with the way it turned out! Wishing you all a fantastic week ahead! :)
