Hey you guys!

I usually don’t post much about books that aren’t mine, but my BFF Roxy Sloane has a new release today, and it’s my favorite of her books so far! It’s called The Scene, and it’s a sexy, suspenseful story set in Miami. It’s a fast read, and it totally pulled me out of a book funk. So I thought I’d share an excerpt from The Scene here on my blog. And then I realized – hello, I have a bunch of books…and a lot of you haven’t read all of them, might not even know about all of them. So I think I’m going to start sharing excerpts from my books here periodically, too. But first, a quick peek at The Scene!

“I just purchased a new piece,” Xavier says, lifting something from the crate. “Tell me what you think.”

He sets the painting on a console, leaning against the wall, then stands back to look at it.

The image is a portrait, a woman lounging on a bed, draped in sheets. The artist painted in shades of deep reds and grays, and I can almost feel the sensuous desire in every stroke.

“I like it,” I say, still feeling out of my depth.

“It’s not my usual style,” Xavier says, still staring at it. “But there’s something about the energy, the sense of passion…” He reaches out and slowly traces the line of the brushstrokes with his fingertip, along the woman’s shoulder and down her back.

I shiver, suddenly imagining what it would be like to have his finger tracing me, stroking my bare skin. “You can see how much the artist wants her,” I say, without thinking. “It’s like a love letter.”

“Yes. A seduction.” Xavier turns, and the look in his eyes makes me wonder if he can see how turned on I am right now.

You can grab The Scene at Amazon for only .99!

Comment on this post telling me what book of mine you’d like to see an excerpt from. In the meantime, I think I might post a deleted Sloth scene!

xo,

Ella
