I’m excited to share the cover for my January 28, 2015 release, Dance With My Heart.
In this second Southland romance, Danny, Liz’s security expert brother from the first book, meets his match in the form of his employee, Jane.
Traumatized by her past, former police officer Jane Dillon gets a new start in Los Angeles as a bodyguard. If she weren’t so good at saving people, she might seek a new career. At least when she moonlights as a dance teacher, no one shoots at her. One impossible-to-please macho boss, one hunk of manly hot action hero, and one oversized Southern family set her on a course she never saw coming.
Former Navy SEAL, Danny Baker, has a lot to deal with between his dad’s health, his sister’s public breakup, and figuring out how to get rid of a female employee without getting a sexual discrimination suit filed against him. He’s always believed it to be his duty to protect women and children, but seeing the beautiful and lethal Jane in action turns his worldview upside down. He’d almost rather go back to the jungle, except the dance floors of L.A. and the woods of Georgia are providing plenty of excitement.
If they can overcome their differences, Danny’s family, and Jane’s past, they might find that they make the perfect team.
He concentrated on the fight. Seeing her in action was a thing of beauty. If he could get his hands on her, he could make her submit, but damn, she was fast. She kept surprising him with drop moves and rolls. Finally, just when he thought his lungs would explode, he was able to grab onto her block and he had her. He pinned her beneath him and propped his elbows on either side of her head. The rise and fall of her chest against his made him forget why he was there.
Her breathing was labored. “Your sister is going to need you fighting in her corner. You should respect her wishes.”
The sound of clapping hands made them turn their heads to find Breck had been watching. “So that’s how the pros do it? Impressive.”
Danny released her, and she rolled away onto her feet.
I love this fight scene in the movie Miss Congeniality.
Girls kick butt right?
Do you have a favorite male/female fight scene from a book or movie?
