Today's Sneak Peek is the new adult contemporary romance Her Kind of Man by Elaine Cantrell.
WHAT IT'S ABOUT:
Is it possible she’s finally found her kind of man?
Ross Williams has been in love with Kara Cochrane since they were kids,
so when Kara's fiancé Brandon Miles cheats on her with Kara's own
sister, and calls off their wedding—Ross steps in to rescue the damsel
in distress. A heartbroken Kara just wants to get on with her life and
hunky Ross provides her with a definite distraction—that is until she
starts falling for him. Big time. But a devastating family secret
threatens to destroy everything that Kara holds dear—including her
relationship with Ross.
He took Kara’s hand and pulled her into his arms. “I could use a goodbye kiss.” Kara didn’t know if she wanted to kiss him or not. She liked kissing Ross, but they had only gone out a couple of times. The
sound of Kelly’s voice at the top of the stairs decided the issue. Kara
closed her eyes and tilted her head as his lips met hers. She forgot
Kelly, the wedding dress, and her mother. In fact, she almost forgot her
own name. Something about Ross made her want to hold him and never let
him go. She couldn’t think straight when he held her this way.

spoken even if she hadn’t been kissing him. Ross didn’t feel like
Brandon. He didn’t kiss like Brandon. The warm fuzzies she experienced
with Brandon felt nothing like this. This kiss was thrilling, scary,
heart pounding, and sizzling hot. Yes, Ross made her hot for him. His
kisses and touch drove all but one thought from her mind, and she didn’t
have to say what that was.
The kitchen door slammed in
the background and broke the spell. She jumped and twisted in Ross’s
arms. “Steady,” he muttered. “It’s only the door.”
was so not fair! Ross should be the one losing his senses, not her. She
pulled away from him again, this time making sure she succeeded in
putting some distance between them.
“Thank you for dinner. I enjoyed it very much.” Drat! Why did her voice sound so prim and proper? Ross gave her a wicked little grin that told her he knew exactly how he’d made her feel.
