I promised to reveal the cover this weekend for All In.  Well here it is.  I can thank Kim Killion at Hot Damn Designs for working her magic yet again.  I love how it turned out and love the expressiveness in the hand.  Hands fascinate me in general so based on the fact that Ethan Blackstone is known for touching his girl all the time, I thought this cover worked perfectly for their story.  I also promised an excerpt so here goes.  You will see that Mr. Blackstone is still explaining things to Brynne in that very direct way of his.  *snickers*  He can do blunt and scorchingly sexy better than any man I know and it only makes me love him more.


Excerpt~


“Where are we going?” she asked.


“First?  We’re going to get some food.”  It came out a little harsher than I wanted it to.


She nodded at me and then looked away, out the window.


“After you eat we’ll get a new phone and mobile number for you.”


She looked down at her lap and nodded again.  I wanted to pull her into my arms but I held off.


“Then I’m taking you home.  My place—home.”


“No, Ethan, that’s not a good idea,” she whispered.


“Fuck good ideas,” I exploded.  “Would you at least look at me?”  She turned her eyes up to mine and smoldered in the seat, a hint of red fire flickering and making them look very brown.  I wanted to drag her to me and shake her, making her understand that this bullshit break-up was a thing of the past.  She was coming home with me, period.  I turned the key in the ignition.


“What do you want from me, Ethan?”


“That’s easy.”  I made a rude noise.  “I want to go back to one week ago.  I want to be back in my office fucking on my desk with you wrapped around me!  I want your body underneath mine looking up at me with some expression other than the one I saw when you left me at the elevators!”  I rested my forehead on the steering wheel.


“Okay…Ethan.”  Her voice sounded shaky and more than a little defeated.


“Okay…Ethan?” I mocked, pulling my head up to look her over.  “What does that mean?  Okay I’m coming home with you?  Okay to you and me?  What?  I need more from you, Brynne.”
