Hi everyone! Since it's so chilly here in the Northeast these days, I thought I'd post an excerpt from one of my first novels, the contemporary romance Lost in Paradise. Eddie West is one of my favorite heroes EVER. He's a rough-around-the-edges auto mechanic with a heart of gold, who's a small-town ladies' man until he meets his match in Boston-bred politician's daughter Ashton Kirk...here's the first time they meet:

Sweat lined the creases in his forehead, and brilliant blue eyes met hers. Their color startled her, so bright they made the summer sky seem shady and dull. The more she examined them and tried in vain to match them to a Crayola color that had never existed, the more she felt a strange tumbling in her stomach that she didn't like at all.
God, what's wrong with me? He's just a guy. Pull it together, Ash.
Taking a deep breath, she shifted her gaze to the doorjamb above him. “Hi, Eddie. Come on in.”
