Welcome to Novel Gems ~ Killing Secrets 04–02-13!
I love to sneak a peek into a writer friend’s developing novel. It’s just so much fun watching their story grow and getting the inside scoop. So every Tuesday until I finish my romantic suspense, Killing Secrets, I’ll share a gem with you ~ a couple of sentences, several paragraphs of a pivotal scene, or a phrase that just made me sigh or laugh out loud or scares me or…well, you get the picture.
A bit of set up for today’s gem….
Patrick gives Rachel the one thing she needs to put a devastating part of her past behind her…control…and that’s all you’re getting!

“It’s okay, baby, I won’t hurt you,” he whispered against her lips. “Just tell me what you want. Show me what you need.”
He felt her take a deep breath. Then another. “I-I don’t know how,” she admitted on a shaky breath. “I’ve never—“
It took everything in him not to leave the bed and go track down Rachel’s ex-husband himself. He wanted to kill the bastard for what he’d done to this incredible woman. Patrick drew in a harsh breath. He knew what it would take for him to hold back, but he also knew how important it was to give Rachel what she needed.
“Now’s your chance,” he whispered against her lips before kissing her gently. He rolled off her and lay back on the bed, pulling her on top of him. Her luscious legs straddled his hips, bringing them together in too many ways that tested his control. But he removed his hands from her body. “I won’t touch you unless you ask me,” he said, moving his hands above his head. “Tell me what you want. Show me.”
….see you next Tuesday with another NOVEL GEM.
