Bonds of Justice is out!!


To celebrate the release, here's an excerpt!
___________

Excerpt from Bonds of Justice

The door opened at that moment, revealing the woman at the center of his thoughts. She’d changed into jeans and a gray sweatshirt that covered those curves he was starting to obsess over. He could see the edge of a white T-shirt beneath the sweatshirt, while plain black sneakers peeked out from under the hem of her jeans.


“Is this appropriate?” she asked. “I assumed we might have time to go to the garage as well.”


He ran his gaze not over her clothing, but over the soft curls of her shoulder-length hair. A rich, charcoal black, those curls tempted a man to fist his hands in the softness, tug her close, and sink his teeth—deliciously carefully—into that full lower lip. “Yes.” It came out husky.


She hesitated, as if she’d caught the edge in his tone, but her words when they came were pragmatic. “I’ll e-mail the Councilor from the car, ensure the chief mechanic knows we’ll be coming.” Locking her door after picking up that little computronic gadget that seemed to be surgically attached to her hand, she fell into step beside him, her head not even reaching his shoulder.


“You’re short.” He could tuck her under his arm, and against his body, without any problem whatsoever.


Sophia almost halted. “That kind of observation is rude in all cultures.”


He shrugged, but he’d noted the jerky movement before she smoothed out her stride, considered the implications—Psy made it a point to react as little as possible, regardless of the provocation. And Max was very, very good at provocation when he was in the mood. “I didn’t say you didn’t look good short.”


“I am what is termed a ‘throwback’ to my great-great-grandmother,” Sophia said, her tone pure feminine frost. “She had the identical body type. I will never be slender.”


“From where I’m standing”—Max couldn’t help himself, the devil in him taking over—“slender is overrated.”


Ignoring him with a focus that made his lips curve into a slow, satisfied smile, Sophia pressed her finger to the touch pad for the elevator.

Soooooo.....when can we get a sneak peek at Indigo's book?? ;)

ladyacct said...

Sneak peek of Indigo's at the end of Bonds of Justice.

Loved it!!!

kaleigha said...

I stayed up all night to read it, and loved every minute of it. I do believe that this one has jumped to the top of my favorite list in the series, and that is saying something for a book without a changeling male in the lead. I, erm, also might have started the book by flipping to the back to find out who Indigo's fella is...yay.

Saskia said...

I wanted to wait until the book comes out in german, because ist difficult for me to read englisch books, but now I think I can`t wait this long...

A said...

azteclady said...

This is cruel... cruel, I tell you!

*sobs*

Chudney Defreitas-Thomas said...

Anyway, as I said earlier:

I'm trying to be good and wait until RWA's Literacy Signing but these are the kind of things that make it soooooooooooo difficult!

I'm so jealous of those who already have copies - I'll have to wait for my turn in the queue from the library as I can't purchase the eBook version from New Zealand! At least I'm only 39th on the list.

Dana Alma said...

You see, no matter how much I try to stick to a budget and just buy 2 books a week, a great book comes out and there goes the budget! I have been dying to read this book. Keep them coming.

KathyB said...

I'm about 1/2-way through the book, and I resent the fact that I have to work instead of read... I absolutely cannot wait to resume/finish!

wolfwattitude said...

I loved Bonds of Justice! But then again I love all of your books. I haven't been able to start a new book; still basking in the glory of your work ;) Can't wait till Indigo's book comes out.

Take care,
