Excerpt

“Phoenix?”

“Trust me, Ron.”

I nod, my hands suddenly shaking. He takes them into his hand and lifts them to his mouth. He kisses my fingers softly.

“You’re grieving right now—I would never take advantage of you. But…”

I take a deep breath.

He lets go of my hands and reaches out toward the still unbuttoned top two buttons of my shirt. The collar lays open, and his fingers trace the hollow of my throat. “You look gorgeous in my shirt.”

His eyes are locked on me, and I feel overpowered but safe all at once. There’s a strange ache in my body, answering to the hunger in his eyes.

“It is by far the most beautiful you have ever looked.”

My eyes dart up as he reaches out to touch the next button. He studies me as he slowly begins to unbutton. My entire body warms, and I bite down hard on my bottom lip. He abandons my button to run his fingers across my lips once more. I try to remember to breathe.

About the Author
Given my love for cities and all that is gritty, my new obsession with trees really has me stumped. (Sorry.) Maybe it's because trees are the inspiration behind my new YA/NA novel, THE LETTING.

Whatever the reason for my new infatuation, some things remain constant -- like my love for: coffee (although sadly, it's now decaf); yoga; Luna bars (I am petitioning for them to bring back Chocolate Raspberry!); running in my neighborhood; Hemingway; Bukowski... and, above all, my husband and my girls.

I am the author of the bestselling novel, Sleeping With Mortals: The Story of a New York Mistress, and I'm also a playwright. I have my B.A. in English and my M.A. in Theatre.

    1. Hi Mai T.! Thanks for the great question! Truthfully, I don't have a preference. I love to read -- and I read both on a digital reader, and paperbacks. I do have things I like about each -- I like the feel of a paperback,and I like the freedom it offers. However, I appreciate digital readers, and love that digital publishing has made so many more books accessible. I also like carrying a whole bunch of books in one small reader. Makes reading "on the go" easy! Thanks, and thanks for stopping by!
