Silvia Violet’s Coming Clean

A former Force Recon Marine that now cleans houses? Sign me up for that! Here today you can read an excerpt that you won’t find anywhere else. You’ll be so glad you did, the excerpt is a little adorable, and a little dorky, and a whole lot sweet. At the very bottom enter for a chance to win an Amazon or ARe giftcard.
An unexpected inheritance lands Jeremy a large house and plenty of money to take a sabbatical from his job teaching poetry at a small college. He intends to sell the house and take off on a new path to discover what he wants out of life. Then he meets Connor. The attraction he feels to a man so different from himself is no less shocking than his change in financial circumstances, but Connor is in the closet and Jeremy wants a life lived out in the sun.
Connor is a former Force Recon Marine who runs a housecleaning business. When he’s hired to get Jeremy’s house market-ready, he’s startled by how attracted he is to his client despite their many differences. But his past, especially his final mission, weighs heavily on him. He’s not certain he can be the man Jeremy needs, but no man has ever made him want to take a risk like Jeremy does.
Connor realized he’d been staring. What had Jeremy said? “Um… hi. Sorry. I was… distracted.” Don’t talk anymore.
Jeremy smiled. “That’s okay. I usually am, especially around you. Wait. That didn’t come out right.”
He’s flirting with you. Respond to it.
You can face down an enemy who’ll do anything to achieve his goals but you can’t flirt with a man you desperately want?
Yeah. That’s… yeah.
“I’m almost ready. I’m just going to grab a sweater and a blanket. It gets cold out there by the end of the play.”
“Oh, that’s a good idea,” Connor said. “I didn’t think about that.”
“You want to borrow a sweatshirt? I have a few that are big on me. I think they would fit you.” Jeremy’s gaze skimmed his shoulders and then dropped lower for a fraction of a second before he met Connor’s gaze again, cheeks reddening.
He wants you. “That would be great, if you don’t mind.”
Silvia Violet writes erotic romance in a variety of genres including paranormal, contemporary, sci fi, and historical. She can be found haunting coffee shops looking for the darkest, strongest cup of coffee she can find. Once equipped with the needed fuel, she can happily sit for hours pounding away at her laptop. Silvia typically leaves home disguised as a suburban stay-at-home-mom, and other coffee shop patrons tend to ask her hilarious questions like “Do you write children’s books?” She loves watching the looks on their faces when they learn what she’s actually up to. When not writing, Silvia enjoys baking sinfully delicious treats, exploring new styles of cooking, and reading to her incorrigible offspring. Come visit me at my website: http://silviaviolet.com
