Please welcome author Diane Scott Lewis


Hello, Diane, and welcome! You have a new release out called False Light that can be found at Eternal Press.


Excerpt:


“I should send you home,” Everett whispered, but continued to kiss the curve of her jaw, her earlobe, down her throat, then back to her lips.
Bettina sighed, her skin tingling, her desire for him strong. She returned his kisses with equal insistence. “Oh, Everett. What is next for us? We need to decide.”
“Decide…yes. I need you, now.” His murmur sounded so eager. “Shall we go upstairs?”
“Upstairs…to talk in private?” How far would she allow it to go? He’d just admitted his great need for her. She also needed him, his solid, comforting protection. Her body grew hot and full. “For a short time, yes.”
He clasped her arm and led her from the parlor, down the hall, and they ascended the stairs. Only her thumping heart seemed real—the rest of this felt like a dream.
In his chamber, Bettina glanced around the familiar room, her head a little dizzy. She resisted the urge to laugh and say they couldn’t go any further. She wanted to ask if he planned to divorce his wife; but of course he would, he’d have to now.
Everett came to her then, engulfing her in his arms, his kisses so sweet. Still, she would stop him before he went too far, and extract a promise of marriage.
He eased back from her, his expression questioning, as if he’d read her thoughts.
“Of course, this will change everything,” she said, almost in a whisper. He hesitated. She stepped into him, against him. Smiling, she felt the power of her allure, seeing his blue eyes cloud with desire. She would prove his decency by letting him kiss her, then he would send her home.

I saw that you novel got a "two flames" designation - sounds like it's right at my level of passion and romance. Good luck with it!
