Here's an excerpt of my latest romantic suspense, Blonde Demolition.
She slammed her hand on the table. Her beer wobbled. She caught it. "You are not seducing me back into this life."
He shifted away from her, his arms crossed. His expression didn't change. He hadn't even flinched at her outburst. Not even at her use of the word seduce, which she knew any shrink would have a field day with.
Had he predicted what she would do?
When they had worked together, he'd known before she did that she had to pee. She'd never met anyone so in tune with her. Maybe she never wanted to have anyone know her that way again.
"I'm different now. I have this great life." Her finger stabbed the air, punctuated every word. "You cannot take that away from me."
"I'm not taking away anything. I'm giving you something. I'm giving you back the ability to make a difference."
She stalked away from him. "You think I don't make a difference? What about the family whose house didn't burn down because I was here?"
"You can prevent many more houses from not burning down with us."
She shook her head. "It isn't the same."
He would not pull her strings. He would appeal to her sense of honor and her strong desire to help people. He knew all the cards she held and how to play them to his advantage.
"No, it's better," he said.
