Saturday Sample

Hello, readers!  Elizabeth and Nikki here. Elaine will be back at the blog on January, so we only have a few more days with you. We started our time with an excerpt from Elaine's book about Nikki, so today we thought we'd share an excerpt from Return Engagement. Blue 52, Elaine's new release, is the sequel to Return Engagement. First a blurb, then an excerpt.

Elizabeth Lane is one lucky woman. She has it all-money, fame, a satisfying career and a devoted fiancé. Her humble beginnings are all but obscured, but she isn't the kind of woman Senator Henry Lovinggood wants for his son, Richard. Senator Lovinggood plans to make Richard the President of the United States; he'll need a woman from a wealthy, powerful family by his side. Ten years ago the senator broke Richard and Elizabeth up, but this time it won't be so easy, for Elizabeth wants to know what might have been. This time she'll fight back, a struggle which ultimately leads to kidnapping and attempted murder and alienates her from the man of her dreams.

Excerpt: In this excerpt Richard and Elizabeth meet on a California beach ten years after they broke up.

Elizabeth threw her hands over her burning face again.

“What kind of woman am I? I haven’t seen you in ten years,

yet here I am leading you on and encouraging you to…

What’s wrong with me!”

Richard jerked her hands away from her face and kissed

them. “From my point of view things have finally taken a turn

for the better.” Satisfaction oozed from his voice. “You’re

willing to admit you don’t want to lose me. It’s taken ten

years, but we’re back where we belong: together. Everything

I ever felt for you came back the minute you spoke to me.”

His voice lowered and became husky and persuasive. “Don’t

tell me you didn’t feel it too.”

“I…” Elizabeth fell silent. After all, what could she say?

“Let me help you make up your mind about what you

want to do.” Richard pushed her back into the sand and kissed

her, a delicate brushing of lips that deepened as hearts caught

fire. Elizabeth imagined she could feel the thudding of his

heart against her own and shivered against him.
