I thought I'd post a 5th snippet from Dancing in the Dark, my novella which has just been released. It's a prequel (I call it a "prelude") to a book to due out in October 2013. If you're curious about the other snippets from the novella, click on Dancing in the Dark on the right and you'll see them. Janey's asked Matt (a CIA paramilitary officer) for help finding out what's happened to her brother (also in the CIA--edits due on his novel May1!). This is in Janey's POV.
He walked down the hall, a tall shadow against the stormy sky beyond the living room window.
Bare to the waist, all sleek muscle and effortless coordination, he bent to pick up the phone from the coffee table and pressed several keys.
"You use the phone?"
"I'm not a telepath," he replied with a smile that pushed at the dimple in his left cheek. That devastating dimple.

I have Pinterest board just for Dancing in the Dark. You can take a look here.
What if you discovered all you ever wanted were the things you left behind?
Covert CIA agent Matt Kincaid has come to tiny Walton Springs for some R&R, only to find Janey Blackmon waiting for him at his mother's house. Matt’s not there to swap memories with the girl he’s never forgotten…and he’s definitely not there to divulge government secrets about her missing brother, no matter how much she pleads.
Ten years…and Janey hasn’t forgotten the love of her life…or that he abandoned her the night of her prom. Bound by duty and honor, he was shipped out to parts unknown by Uncle Sam. But she knew he would go, because like her brother, adventure is in Matt’s blood. Being stuck in a small town with plain Jane the librarian wasn’t ever in his plans.
Trapped by a flood, with no phone or power, smoldering desire threatens to burst into flame. Will passion—and Matt’s offer to recreate prom night—lead to a future together? Or are they just dancing in the dark?
