Snippet Sunday: Blue 52

 
 
Welcome to Snippet Sunday. I'm so glad you're here because today I'm sharing the first ever excerpt from Blue 52, a mainstream romance that will be released on December 1.  In this excerpt, my hero and heroine meet for the first time. First an excerpt, then a blurb.
 
Hank rose to his feet. He didn’t know what he had expected, a person his grandfather’s age maybe, but the woman who appeared in the door behind his secretary looked almost as beautiful as his mother. In fact, as impossible as it seemed, she might be even more beautiful. She was about five six and had dark hair and eyes even bluer than his own. He guessed she might be about his age. Her figure would make a blind man stare, but the expression on her face attracted him as much as her physical appearance. Intelligence, curiosity, and life shone from her eyes. She glowed with an eagerness he didn’t understand.
 
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.

"She glowed with an eagerness he didn’t understand."

Kudos!

Interesting that his barometer for beauty is his mother. I'm guessing it's because of what happened to her that is expressed in your blurb. Nice description Elaine.
