This week, it’s a special giveaway hook! As book 1 in The Silk Series, SILK & SCANDAL, is coming out next week (OMG!), that’s the lucky little duck that’s being featured. Check out the giveaway below, but first the hook:
Clearly, he needed help and, knowing Thomas, he would not ask. Making her way to his side of the desk, she stopped beside him. Without comment, he watched her, back still rigorously straight.
Hesitantly, she lifted her hand and smoothed her fingers through his hair.
Instantly, she froze. She would not force him to accept her comfort, and she would not be the cause of any more distress.
Closing his eyes, he leaned into her touch. Just a bit. Just enough to accept her comfort.
Wishing she’d had the forethought to remove her gloves, she stroked the bright blond strands. “Thomas, what ails you?”
Tension bunched his shoulders. “Nic, you shouldn’t be here.”
“Always it’s ‘Nic, you shouldn’t be here.’ Well, I am here, Thomas, and it is plain something troubles you.” Hidden in the folds of her skirt, her hand tightened to a fist even as she kept the other stroking a soothing rhythm. “Please. Tell me.”
