This week my teaser is a little longer, so you'll have to forgive me, but I really wanted to share this. It's from my new book, still untitled.

Before long we were settling onto faux leather couches with caffeinated heaven in a cup. I’d scarcely set my coffee down when I saw a familiar face come through the door. I ran across to him, jumping to wrap my arms around his neck, my legs around his waist. Dominic gave me a scorching kiss, the kind that made my toes curl. As he set me back on my feet, I turned to find the others staring at me, their jaws agape.
“Girls, this is Dominic. This is Cleo and Charlotte.”
“I promise I’m not some creeper who lucked out.” He grinned, throwing an arm around my shoulder and pulling me tight. I smiled at him as we settled onto a couch.
“Dominic and I have been together since the third grade.” Noticing some lip gloss smeared on his lips, I reached up to wipe it away with my thumb.
His rich chuckle sent a wave of heat through me. “We used to hold hands under the library table.”
Charlotte looked at Cleo and pretended to stick her finger down her throat with a wink. Cleo just raised one eyebrow at us. “As long as you don’t start finishing each other’s sentences, he can stay.”
