Sexy Snippet: Chasing High Noon

Celebrating the release of Knot in Destiny, the final book in the Star Crossed Series, I'll be dropping a sexy snippet everyday leading up to the release.

Chasing High Noon:

Part of Malcolm had wanted to stay, like a fly on the wall, to see if Meredith kicked her family out or if they behaved themselves. He had been beyond uncomfortable opening the door to find her mother staring back at him, but then the idea that they’d shown up to actually help had eased his tension. Still, a hasty retreat had seemed best.

Now, marching up the stairs to their adjoining apartments, Malcolm couldn’t wait to see her. He wanted to make sure she’d stopped at least long enough to have a cup of coffee.

Maybe she’d even got some breakfast. 

As soon as Malcolm was inside, he dropped his satchel on the counter and headed straight for the door that led to Meredith. Unfortunately it wasn’t her beautiful brown eyes he saw when he stepped into the kitchen. 

Hand still on the door knob, Malcolm stopped short when he saw a slender man staring back at him from the front of the open refrigerator. “Can I help you?” the man asked, lifting an uppity eyebrow.

Glancing back over his shoulder, Malcolm made sure that he had come from his apartment. Seeing all his clutter, he nodded and turned back to the stranger. “I’m Malcolm Blackwood. Who are you?”

The man closed the fridge door carefully and turned to block Malcolm from the rest of the apartment. “You’re the person inhabiting the other apartment, I take it. I’m afraid Miss Blackburn is very busy and does not wish to be disturbed.”
          For a second Malcolm almost bowed out and left Meredith in the care the man, but it passed quickly enough. The gall of the man caused his back to straighten and his shoulders to square. Glaring at the stranger, he asked, “Doesn’t wish to be disturbed?”

 The third book in the series, Chasing High Noon, was a little overwhelming. Meredith and Malcolm's relationship had hit a point when so many people realize it's either going to work or it's not. Overworked, Meredith wasn't giving Malcolm the attention he had grown accustom to. Instead of holding this against her, he waited her out and gave her time to get things in order. If only more people understood. Sometimes it's not about demanding time. Sometimes it's about being supportive and that was a role Malcolm was willing to fill.

Chasing High Noon:

Overworked, Meredith Blackburn is on a deadline. Restoring the Dragon’s Eye, a family relic that connects them to their magical roots, has turned into a trial by fire. With her family breathing down her neck, the Lunar Shadow can’t come soon enough.

Malcolm Blackwood is sure Meredith is still there somewhere, but with a new attendant and family pressure, she’s just too wrapped up to notice that things are wrong. Warned about forbidden magic and desperate to support his lover, he’s tiptoeing through a mine field.

Will the Blackburns be satisfied? Or will Meredith be cast out?
