Welcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the fabulous Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.
Today, I’m sharing from my next book to release:
In the Blind
Last Week: Our heroine fell on her ass and discovered her hero was wearing a wedding ring. Ouch! This Week: I’ve skipped some sweet interactions with these two. I’m so naughty. 😉 Instead, I’m giving you another clue about that ring.
He followed her back to her table. She took his card and promised to call if she came across a position for him. As he walked away, she grabbed hold of her table. He belonged to someone else. All he could be was a friend, a fantasy at best.
He’d gotten half way across the room before he turned and came back. A flutter of impossibility filled her belly. He stopped his forward movement once, but then continued until he was a foot from her table.
“I’d really like to see you again, but—”
“It’s okay. I saw the ring earlier.” She shoved her hands into her pockets.
“Oh, that.” He played with the ring. “My divorce has been final for a few weeks, but I can’t seem to take it off.”
“I’m sorry.” She reached out to him, but pulled back. “I have no idea how hard that must be.”
“Is it strange the divorce should feel more natural than the marriage?”
“Big changes, no matter how natural, take time to cope.”
“Wise words.” An easy smile lifted the strain from his face. “Did you get that one from your grandpa?”
“I did.” She nodded her head.
“I may not be ready to change my work situation, but call me, if you find something. Maybe I’ll be ready when you call.”
“I’ll do that.”
“Thank you, Jane.” He reached out his hand. “It was really nice to meet you.”
She took hold of his hand, squeezed hard, and let him go.
The memories from that day replayed regularly in her mind. Once she started her string of first dates, they were all compared to Rob. Not a one made her smile as easy or left her needing more like he did.
There you have it. Combine that with the clue in the blurb and you’ll see our hero is being honest here, poor guy. It’s time for him to move forward. If it were only that easy.
Jane thinks she’s ready to take the risks her business and love life desperately need. Rob’s still punishing himself for a broken relationship that wasn’t meant to last. When the pair let an opportunity pass them by, fate steps in and throws them back together.
An evening of pitch black unrestrained passion at Club Blind opens her eyes to life’s possibilities. Now, if they don’t fight past their personal demons, they might never truly discover what they need most. If they can open their hearts, it might lead them directly to each other where they can discover their truth. If not, they may forever stay in the blind.

Holy hotness!! Love this tease!! Only a few more weeks to go, and I can’t wait!! 🙂
Aw! Thank you, Liz. 🙂
Great tease, S.J. – well done!
Thanks, Lucy. 🙂
I love their moment here and I can’t help but be curious about Rob with his not taking off the ring yet. Gives us some really great clues about who he is. Doesn’t seem vengeful or spiteful or hateful. Nice tease, SJ.
Thanks, Carlene and you got it. He’s one heck of a guy. He made me really think about that old question. Do nice guys finish last?
Great tease, S.J.! I love Rob’s character a little more each week. I can’t wait to see these two grow closer.
Thanks, Reese. 🙂 Their love is really something to watch.
I love the teases from this story, SJ. I’ve been waiting for this one for a long time! Can’t wait to read it in its entirety.
Thanks for teasing!
This one certainly has been patient while I got in the right position to set it free. 🙂 Thanks, Sandra!
Mm…Rob is an interesting fellow. Great job!
That he is. 🙂 Thanks, London.
I’d say she’s falling in love. I can see why the ring would be a problem. Looking forward to more.
Ah, I kinda love the fact that he hasn’t managed to take the ring off yet. Says a lot about him Fab tease, SJ 🙂
Hot tease and great characterization 🙂
