I intended to release my newest book last week, His Reluctant Bodyguard, Book 2 in the Adventure Cruise Line series. Unfortunately, some family drama got in the way, but I'm looking to release the book very soon. Meanwhile I thought you might enjoy a little peek at Rip and Avery's story, so here are six sentences from Chapter 6 of His Reluctant Bodyguard.
Rip pressed his ear against the crack between the heavy wooden door and its frame, in a vain attempt to hear anything that might be happening in the corridor.
The temperature in the tiny airless room seemed to grow warmer by the moment, and the sweat on his face made his various cuts and contusions sting. But since his hands were lashed behind his back, he couldn't wipe it away. At least he believed his hands were still there. He'd lost all feeling in them by the time he'd regained consciousness.
Okay, sorry to leave you with that mini cliff-hanger (Aunty grins devilishly). You'll just have to read the rest of the book to find out what happens.
