Hey, and welcome to another wonderful My Sexy Saturday bloghop, where authors give snippets from their work. I’m giving 7 sentences from my recently released novel, Vespar. This is Marcolm’s reaction to meeting the tall, dark, and brooding stranger.
That day everything went wrong—from starting a new job that morning, to running late for class, to being an idiot because he noticed a hot guy and not only rammed right into him but fell to the ground afterward. The guy stared at him as though he’d never seen anything quite as strange as Marcolm. Could he be any more of a dork?
“He had the most amazing eyes, though,” he mused. They were deep brown, almost black. And that ultrashort black hair was a definite turn-on. There was something about his straight jaw and the tan of his skin that made Marcolm think of noble knights in the paintings he’d seen.
Special ops turned professional killer, Vespar McKauley is hired to take out Marcolm Rogers, son of his employer’s worst enemy. But Marc isn’t like any hit he’s ever done. He’s just twenty-one, he goes to a private university studying English Lit, and for fun he plays computer games with his friends. No drugs, no partying, no crime. The day he bumps into Marc and looks into his azure eyes, the world drops out from under him.
With his father in the Chicago Crime Syndicate, Marc and his mom have stayed out of the limelight, hiding from those that might harm them. He figures he’s safe at a small liberal arts university all the way across the country. Only midway through his senior year, he feels eyes on him and the shadows encroaching. Just as he’s about to run, he meets Vespar and experiences an instant attraction. When Vespar tells him he’s in danger and offers to protect him, Marc wants to believe him. But he’s been hunted before, and this time he isn’t sure he’ll get away. Especially when he finds out he is Vespar’s target.
