Saturday Sample: Blue 52

Welcome to Saturday Sample. My sample today comes from Blue 52, a mainstream romance that will be published on December 1 by Whiskey Creek Press. In spite of being attracted to my heroine, my hero Hank tries to find reasons not to get involved with her.  First a blurb, then an excerpt.

BLURB

"First Lady Kills President Lovinggood"

December 29, 2018

Thirty years later Hank Lovinggood embarks on a quest to prove his mother's innocence and punish the killers who took his family from him.  Together Hank and lovely physicist Kathryn Sinclair confront an implacable, twisted, merciless enemy who'll do whatever it takes to hide the truth forever. 

EXCERPT
Hank decided to take a shower. Now that all the excitement had ended, he had time to think about Kathryn. He didn’t like the way her kisses had made him feel.
He stripped off his clothes and turned on the shower. No, that isn’t exactly true. I enjoyed kissing her; I meant that I didn’t want to feel anything when we kissed. I’ve never seen a more beautiful woman, and truthfully…well, truthfully I’ve never felt quite so attracted to anyone, even Kayla Prentice, but I don’t want to want Kathryn. She has some major issues, and I don’t need any more issues in my life. I have plenty of my own.


Besides, if he really meant to investigate his parents’ murders, he didn’t need the distraction. He would need every bit of his wit, skill, and energy; he didn’t have time for a romance.
