#ThursdayThirteenGoodreads GiveawayMakricosta SeriesMakricosta DynastySeduced Into The Greek's World

This is a fly-by blog post because I just received revisions and want to jump on them.


So you're getting thirteen sentences from said manuscript that needs revising. It's a quick peek at Demitri and Natalie, Book Four in what my editor just called my Makricosta Dynasty stories. Yes! A Dynasty!!

Oh, and it has a title: Seduced Into The Greek's World

Here ya go:

“Even if I was looking for romance,” she blurted, “Which I’m not, I’d hardly start with the owner of the company, would I?”

“I don’t know. Would you? Let’s have dinner tonight and talk about it.”

Her stomach swooped and her heart stopped, like she’d hit an unexpected wall.

That’s how it’s done. She’d been observing, trying to crack the code of dating and casual hook-ups. It had seemed complicated, but he made it look easy. Practice, she surmised cynically.

But hook up with him? Impossible. Her heart restarted, pounding with sudden panic, partly because, well, look at him. He was gorgeous and obviously knew his way around the entire city, not just the block.
