An Excerpt from, Power Desired:
I’ve been promising an excerpt from my book for awhile now. On Friday, during my cover reveal event I shared a small one on Facebook. I thought I would share it here as well. I hope you enjoy.
The cab pulled up in front of the posh restaurant at exactly 7:30. Darci spied Bradley walking in. She smiled at the sight of him as she climbed out of the cab and handed the driver some cash. “Keep the change,” she said as she rushed to catch up with him. He was checking in with the hostess when she entered the lobby. He was nicely dressed in a navy-blue suit that looked tailor made to fit him. She moved up behind him as the hostess walked away and jokingly said, “I know you wanted to see me but this is a little early for a business meeting don’t you think?” He froze for a moment and then slowly turned around.
“Darci?” The look on his face was one of pure confusion. Why does he look surprised to see me? Did I read the e-mail wrong? Darci tried to quell her internal panic.
“I got your assistant’s e-mail. It said you wanted to see me here at 7:30.” He groaned.
“I did want to see you but not here.” Darci quirked an eyebrow upward. “Not that I mind seeing you here,” he added quickly. He seemed flustered, adding to Darci’s inner panic and confusion. He pulled his cell phone from his pants pocket and appeared to be looking for something. Running a hand over his face, he let out the breath he had been holding. “My secretary got my instructions mixed up. Looks like I’m having a business meeting with Peggy and a break-up breakfast with you Miss Sanders.” He cringed as soon as the words were out of his mouth. “That came out all wrong.”
The book comes out on May 22! I’ll be sharing several longer excerpts as the launch gets closer so I hope you keep coming back.
Also, I’m working on a new website. The domain will be the same but it’s going to have a cleaner look and be more than just a blog. That will launch in a week or so.
