Desert Heat Teaser Tuesday! 4-22-13

Here it is the longer teaser I've been wanting to give you! Enjoy the HEAT! ;)

COMING MAY 13, 2014!

Set up: Someone messes with Bethany. How does Detective Santiago react? And meet another Santiago.... Diego his younger brother. =)

Glancing back at the door before addressing his brother’s
comments, Damian was instantly on his feet. Diego turned as if on 
instinct to see what Damian was glaring at.

“Yo, Jake!” Diego said, holding up his hand at Damian as if to calm him.
“I got this, man.”

The guy holding his tatted arm against the doorway, preventing
Bethany from getting by him and saying something
way too close to her face, turned to Diego with a smirk.
Diego waved a flat hand just under his chin, letting him
know he’d better cut the shit, and shook his head. “Not happening,
man. Unless you want your ass kicked, let ’er by.”

The guy pinched his brows but didn’t move his arm, so Damian
took a step forward. Diego placed his hand on Damian’s
chest, then turned to him with a very surprised expression.

He jabbed Damian’s hard and now very tense pec jokingly.
 “Dude! You’re like a brick wall.” Turning back to Jake and
Bethany again, he was even louder. “I’d move that arm right
now, Jake, before my brother goes over there and rips it off.”

Finally getting it, the idiot lifted his hand and let her by.
Damian met her halfway. “You okay?”

“I’m fine,” she said as she reached him and slipped her hand
in his. They started back to the bar. “He said he was sorry.”

Damian stopped and looked back at the guy. “For what?”
he asked, trying not to get too worked up. “What did he do?”

“Nothing.” She tugged at his hand. “He said he didn’t
know I was here with anyone. I hadn’t had a chance to tell
him when Diego called out to him. He was just flirting, that’s
all,” she assured him.

Feeling the tension that had crept into his entire body ease
up just a tiny bit, he gave in to her second tug and followed
her back to the bar.

Diego laughed as they reached him. “Damn, Damian.” He glanced
around. “No one’s gonna even think about messing with her now.”

Damian glanced around casually; he hadn’t even noticed
they’d gotten everyone’s attention. "Good," was all he said
before reaching for his drink.

Desert Heat cover reveal, prologue and entire first chapter!


Atria Books and Simon & Schuster bring you this addictive and steamy romance novel by Elizabeth Reyes the USA Today bestselling author of the Moreno Brothers, 5th Street and Fate series. 

Desert Heat ™ 
Coming  May 13th 2014...

"A steamy and intriguing read, Desert Heat is exactly the kind of romantic suspense I adore." —Tracey Garvis Graves, New York Times bestselling author of On the Island and Covet

Between running from her past, working three jobs and worrying about her family, the only thing that would further complicate singer Bethany Amaya's life is falling in love. But after serendipitously attending a speed dating event by chance and meeting the intense and sexy detective Damian Santiago, that's exactly what she gets. In the blink of an eye, Bethany's caught up in a passionate affair with one of the most irresistible men she's ever met.

As their romance heats up, Damian's skills of detecting and reading body language begin to raise his suspicions. Bethany is keeping something from him. But Bethany refuses to get Damian caught up in her troubles. She feels that some things are better left unsaid. With everything suddenly working against her, the race is on to fix her life before the truth is revealed and Damian finds out it's much worse than he imagines.

Steamy and addictive, Desert Heat is the story of a fiery whirlwind romance threatened at every turn by a dark secret.

Final little tease before release! (Book now available!)

It's almost time! 

What kind of tease would I be if I didn't give you guys one last thing to wonder about right? 

So here you have it. As the countdown to

going live everywhere starts up, here is one last taste of what you're in for. =)

FYI : Forever Yours is a FULL LENGTH novel. Not a novella!  

UPDATE!!! Looks like it's already live in a few places!






I will add more links as it goes live everywhere else!!!

“Sarah,” Angel called out again a little louder, and she turned to see him at the door. “Who are you calling?”

“Valerie,” she said, wiping the tears away from her face.


“So she can come pick me up.”

He hurried to her, and Alex walked out of the apartment behind him. Sarah put her phone down before dialing Valerie, waiting for him but not sure what to expect. Angel’s rigid expression softened the moment he got close enough to see her better in the dark. “Why are you crying?”

“Why do you think?” she said, trying not to sound too angry, but she was only it was mostly at herself.

He took a step forward. “Why’d you come here?”

“Because I wanted to talk to you, but—”

“About what? About *him?” he asked, but he didn’t sound nearly as angry as he had earlier on the phone or when he said he didn’t want her there. He sounded scared now.

“No, about us.” She gulped back the emotion, glad that Alex had stayed behind with Romero and had given them a moment.

“What about us?” Angel asked, his eyes going a little wild. “What are you saying?”

* Whispers... by him Angel is not referring to Sydney. So who is making his eyes go a little wild? Find out tomorrow!  ;)   

Also I'd like to give a HUGE shout out to my editor Theresa Wegand for helping me get this all cleaned up and formatted in time to release sooner than I expected! Don't know what I'd do without her! <3 font="">

Now the setup for this weeks teaser. Y'all remember Sydney right? Well, after 2 years of not having seen him he's dropped by unexpectedly to visit and has some big news/revelations. You won't get to hear about the first reason for his visit here. That you'll have to wait and read about in the book. ;) But he does let her in on something else in this teaser! Happy reading!  
By the time she’d set up Sydney on the front room sofa and was getting ready to climb in her bed, she remembered Carina and felt bad that they’d spent the whole night discussing her issues—again. His Carina troubles and asking Sydney about them had been the last thing on her mind. She tiptoed out into the front room in case he’d already fallen asleep. The second she walked in the room he turned to her and smiled. “Can’t sleep?” he asked. “I can’t either.”

He patted the spot on the sofa adjacent to his waistline. A million years ago, or at least that how long ago it felt, she would’ve thought nothing of it and plopped right down next to him. There was no way now. She leaned against the hallway doorway instead.

“I meant to ask you,” she said, rethinking having gone out there in her sleep clothes—an oversized T-shirt and undies. Tugging at the bottom of her shirt, she continued, “So things are not so great with you and Carina?”

Sydney grimaced. “We broke up actually.”

Sarah’s brows shot up, and her heart actually ached for him. He and Carina had been together as long as she and Angel had. “Really?” She pouted, feeling even worse about not having asked earlier.” What happened?”

“Long story,” he said, sitting up with a crooked smile.
“Tell me,” she urged.

It didn’t feel fair that, as usual, their entire conversation tonight had been mostly about her and her issues. For the past several years—ever since the whole nightmare started with her mom being sent to jail and Sarah having to move out to California then dealing with the trial against her coach and every other new thing that happened to her—it was always the same thing. They’d spend the majority of their conversations discussing her dilemmas, and, like tonight, something as big as Sydney breaking up with his girlfriend of nearly three years had not even been brought up. She felt disgusted with herself.

“If I tell you, you gotta promise you’re not gonna feel bad or try to talk me out of it. My mind is made up. Okay?”

Sarah tilted her head, confused. She already felt bad for him. That was a given. This was huge, and she knew how much Sydney cared about Carina. She’d been his first everything. But trying to talk him out of it?

She nodded. “Okay . . .”

With a deep breath, he began. “She’s never been able to deal with you in my life, Lynn, even from a distance. We’d been having other issues too, but that was the biggest one. It’s why I hadn’t come around in so long. Last year, when I cancelled my trip out here last minute, it wasn’t because of my car issues. It was because, when I told her about the trip, things got hairy.”

Sarah remembered how disappointed she’d been when that happened, but she never for a second questioned his reason.

“After another huge argument we had a few weeks ago,” he continued, “she gave me an ultimatum: her or you.” He shrugged with a small smile. “Of course I chose you.”
