Sneak Peek Sunday - Switched Resolution





After a brief break, I'm back to Sneak Peek Sunday. Today, I'm giving you a glimpse into my newest book, Switched Resolution. From previous Sneak Peeks, you know it's only six paragraphs long. 


We pick up the story right after Jessie told Marcus he's her only love.

Marcus felt a surprising surge of relief. Despite her assurances, insecurity—an aberration in his logic—still plagued him after seeing her in his twin's arms. Jessie was completely open with her feelings. Although he strived to be the same, ridding himself of the constraints of Serenian culture proved more difficult than he expected.
"Besides, it wouldn't have been fair to Scott to marry him while I'm in love with you."
Then she smiled. As always, her face lit up. Her smile touched his heart, his very soul. For that smile—no, for this woman—he would do anything, even give up his ship, his home world, his entire way of life.

She gave him a quick kiss and flashed a saucy grin before stepping away. "I always knew you'd come back for me."
"That isn't what I heard." He pulled her back into his arms. He hated that war had prevented him from returning for her. More, he hated that she feared he would never come back, despite her protests to the contrary.
"Ugly rumors." She laughed.



 Switched Resolution is available at Amazon and Smashwords.

  4. Her playfulness contrasts nicely with his seriousness. Maybe she's good for him?

  5. Thank you all for your comments. I'm glad you like her playfulness. Her main goal has always been to make him loosen up.
