I’ve been reading more suspense lately and have been fortunate to discover some great authors. Peter Swanson is another one to add to the list. The idea of two characters plotting a murder didn’t intrigue me as much as the idea that one of them felt ...more

“That was out of line.”
“No, it wasn’t, querida.” He smiled, the devastating smile she found irresistible. “You’re my wife, and you do have an amazing mouth.”
Delaney Diamond, The Arrangement

“Intuitively, she sensed Leonardo’s gaze on her, and she caught sight of him near the entrance to the balcony. He was watching her, though he should have been engrossed in the conversation with the two other people with whom he was standing, one of which was the redhead. Even from that distance across the room, she could sense his desire for her, and there was an answering pounding of the blood in her veins as their gazes locked.

Maybe it was the kiss between Russell and Joan and the romantic notion of long-lasting love, but Alexa found her thoughts straying to memories of sharing passionate kisses with Leonardo. She carefully placed her glass of wine on the table before it slipped from her damp fingers and crashed onto the expensive white carpet. She felt nervous and jittery because she knew the reason for Leonardo’s smoldering scrutiny. She was fully aware of what was expected of her, and she found herself breathlessly anticipating the end of the evening.”
Delaney Diamond, The Arrangement

“He controlled her with each thrust, damn near stamping his name on her privates-in all caps, bolded, so she'd never forget who it belonged to.”

Thank you! I did it myself, so I'm especially pleased that you liked it. I'm posting it on my blog on Monday, so I hope other people like it, too.

To answer your question, the Hot Latin Men series is a stand alone series, so this couple didn't make an appearance in The Arrangement. However, in Fight for Love I introduce you to Rebekah's free-spirited younger sister, Samirah, and I'm working on her love story now. Samirah will be the heroine in the third book of the series.
