Valentine’s Day with Jack and Katerina & First Winner

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00009]Let’s peek in and see what my hero and heroine from CIRCLE OF DEFIANCE had planned for Valentine’s Day.

Katerina’s eyes narrowed. “Are you saying you want me to go with you to the tattoo parlor? So on the most romantic day of the year, I’m to sit there and watch some woman work on you? Been there. Done that. And burned the shirt.”

“Now, baby, didn’t I fix the top shelf for your dolls?” Jack crossed his arms as he towered over her, flashing a big grin.

“They’re Hello Kitties.” She looked away and said in a amused tone, “Thank you. I really loved the perch for Kinky too. She acts as if they’re her family. They do look like her.”

“If I catch you putting clothes on her, I’ll –”

Laughing, she shook her head.  “I wouldn’t dare. Don’t worry. And I’m not going with you.”

“Damn it, woman. You ruined my surprise. Lucy said she could do a Hello Kitty.”  He pulled her into his arms.

Katerina slipped a hand beneath his shirt. “Not sure a Hello Kitty would look so good next to the angel of death.” Her hand rubbed over his large tattoo.

Jack lifted her. She wrapped her legs around his waist. He whispered, “The tattoo is for you.”

Her heart stopped. She didn’t have anything against tattoos, she loved his. But needles always scared her.

“Will you hold my hand?”

“You betcha.” He snuggled her neck. “Happy Valentine’s Day, sugar.”

“Happy Valentine’s Day to you, love.”30afdd49d785ee61c19a9e1b330646fd

  1. Congrats, Jenn!
    Carla, I can’t get CIRCLE OF DESIRE in paperback (B&N online) and I’m bummed. I can get the second book in paperback. What gives?


  2. First of all, that cover!!! I love the pose of the models, and how he’s snuggling her close 🙂 Second, Jack and Katerina sound adorable together. As much as I’d love a tattoo, I’m not sure any amount of hand-holding by the DH would make me any more willing, lol. Great excerpt, and congrats to Jenn!
