“I don’t think we do simple. We do complicated.”
“We’re older now. Smarter.”
“No,” she said. “I don’t think so. I think we make each other stupid.”
He was in her space now, backing her up. She could feel the heat of his body. Smell soap and musk, which called to the most primitive part of her brain: You want this.
“Fine,” he said. “Let’s be stupid.”
Serena Bell, Hold on Tight

“It’s just holding hands,” she said. “But it’s totally messing with me.”
“Yeah.” He moved his fingers between hers, and that, too, he felt everywhere – all over the surface of his skin.
“What is it?”
“I don’t know.”
“I’ve had sex that isn’t this good.”

“You’re staring.”
“I’ve had sex that isn’t as good as staring at you.”

Harlequin Books Hi Serena, I'm sorry it took a bit to stop by and say thanks for being a friend. Lately it seems my day is over before it properly began. While here, I want you to know that if you ever have any questions about the books on my shelves or about eHarlequin.com, I would be delighted to answer them. Also, I list as much eHarlequin news and author news as I can so be sure to watch for my updates.

Happy reading,
Kim S., Harlequin Books ambassador
