A Teaser and a Giveaway!

How is your January? Are you keeping your New Year’s Resolutions?

I have two treats for you today. First is a snippet from The Paris Affair. Since so many of us have resolved to exercise more in 2012, I thought I’d choose an appropriately themed scene. Here Claire, my heroine, has just finished a workout at the end of a hard week’s work, and is heading to the steam room to soothe her tired muscles.

Keep reading after the excerpt to learn how to enter to win a $10 Amazon gift card plus a Kindle copy of The Paris Affair.

“Who’s there?”

Claire jumped at the voice. In one corner, Helmut’s head swirled into view through the mist. Dark hair clung to his head, curling and damp. She could just make out his neck and the hint of more dark curls at the top of his obviously bare chest.

“You scared me,” she said lamely, quickly hopping to her feet, clasping her towel tightly above her breasts. “I didn’t see anyone in here.”

“Sorry. I was starting to doze. Don’t go on my account.”

Claire hesitated.

“If you want privacy, I can leave,” he offered. The mist cleared temporarily and she caught a glimpse of navy blue workout shorts below tanned and rippling abs.
