Excerpt 2 of 2 (PG) – Give Me Tomorrow by Kaye Spencer #paranormalromance #contemporaryromance #PrairieRosePubs
Forever, like a fine wine, is better when shared.
As Jax watched Lissa tidy up, his curiosity demanded satisfaction. “Tell me about your health problem. Does it have something to do with your preference of working nights?”
“You’re perceptive. I’m sensitive to sunlight.”
“Sensitive as in Lupus, or something like that?”
“No. Not Lupus.”
“So, what is it?”
Without missing a beat, she said, “Too long in the sunlight and my skin sizzles and sloughs off. It’s a nasty sight.” She closed a door and walked to the other side of her truck. “It takes a lot out of me to regenerate the damaged skin. I don’t care for it.”
Jax snorted. “Where did Doc find you? 1-800-DRACULA?” He attempted a dramatic and campy Bela Lugosi impersonation that even he realized fell flat, although Lissa came around the back of her vet truck grinning.
“You have more personality than I anticipated.”
“Personality? What do you mean?”
“Doc Bohlanger has purposely kept me away from your facility. He wanted me to build up a clientele and a reputation before making my first call out here.” She closed the back door of her truck.
“He warned me about you.”
“What, exactly, did he warn you about?” Jax liked the way her dimples deepened and the sassy turn of her pouty lips when she smiled. He also speculated on what she wore under her scrubs—hoping it was black and lacy—while estimating how many times he’d have to take her to dinner before she slept with him.
“He said you have a poor opinion of career women, which has manifested as a notorious reputation as a lady killer. Consequently, you’ll be determined to get me into bed, so you can put another notch on your bedpost.”
Jax grunted a hmmpf.
“You deny his assessment?”
He shook his head, grinning. “No.”
