Hump Day Excerpt: Mercy by HelenKay Dimon
Double high five! It's hump day! If you're counting, there are only five more days until the RT Convention in New Orleans, and we are beyond excited. And one of the many fabulous authors attending is HelenKay Dimon, who is just great. To celebrate the beginning of the end of a long week, we've got an extra smutty scene from her new erotic romantic suspense, Mercy, featuring what reviewer Bridget calls a "magnetic, brooding hero." Enjoy!
Attuned to every sound, when she picked up the soft click of the condo door, Becca yanked open the top drawer and grabbed a knife. With her back shoved into the corner of the kitchen cabinets, she crouched down, ready to spring.
Jarrett walked in and came to a sudden stop. "Not the usual welcome home."
Words tumbled out of her in relief. "Maybe not for you, but this is my life lately."
"What's with the attack mode? "
She forced her fingers to ease up on the death grip on the knife handle. "I'm a bit vulnerable up here all day."
"Ah, I see." He nodded as he closed the door behind him. "But what you aren't is naked."
That again. She set the knife on the counter and picked up the coffee pot. "I didn't want to burn myself."
"Does that happen to you a lot?" As he walked toward her, he draped his suit jacket across the back of the sectional and loosened his tie. "You, the woman who blows up buildings and can carve up a man three times her size in ten seconds."
Forget walking. The man was stalking her. She put the pot down and held onto the counter behind her for support. "You forgot to mention my sniper-like shooting skills."
His gaze traveled along the length of her open shirt — his shirt — and the significant slip of skin open to his view. "The shirt comes off now."
