Good afternoon, friends. I know you’re probably scratching your heads at the title of this post, as it is clearly not Friday. There was a bit of confusion this week over who to post, but as the post-Thanksgiving tryptophan-induced haze has cleared, all is well, and we are forging ahead with First Chapter Fridays. And a bit.
This week’s author is the talented Erica Lynn, who has graciously agreed to share with us the first chapter of Her Husband’s Brother, a novella in her Love and Justice series, which is published by Loose Id. The overall plot of Her Husband’s Brother is as follows:
Lexie Hayes knows her marriage is over. After working endlessly to fix things, she’s decided to move on and find happiness elsewhere. The last thing she needs is to run into her sexy-as-hell brother-in-law at a nightclub on her birthday. He’s cocky, arrogant, and so damn kissable she can barely hold onto her sanity.
Jonathon Hayes has always wanted his sister-in-law. She’s gorgeous, feisty, and unbeknownst to her, married to the largest drug supplier in the Houston and San Antonio areas. When fate puts them side by side, lust and tensions run high. He wants her and he knows she wants him.
Can he keep his feelings on a shelf long enough to keep her safe while he dethrones his drug lord brother, or will temptation overwhelm good sense and put them both on a path to destruction?
Right now, Erica is running a contest. If you like her Facebook page, you will be automatically entered for a chance to win a free copy of the Erica Lynn book of your choice. So get to liking! You will be so glad you did.
Here’s my favorite excerpt from the chapter (click on it, it’s a link to the entire chapter at Erica’s website):
BLISS. PURE. FUCKING. Bliss. Jonathon Hayes watched Lexie from his spot in the corner of the bar, willing to bet money she hadn’t felt that relaxed in a long time. In the past, she’d always been tense, as if she carried the weight of the world on her shoulders. Seeing her like this was a thing of beauty. Dancing and laughing with her friends, not a care in the world, shaking her ass and probably never realizing that all it did was tease every poor bastard’s cock in the room. His included.
