Excerpt:

Alessandra jerks back like I just suggested she prance around the square naked or something. “No! I believe I understand your meaning, and Lorenzo is certainly not my suitor. He is like a brother to me—the three of us grew up together.”

She resumes walking and I fall in step beside her, understanding there has to be more to the story.  And as we near the end of the row, I finally as, "If you're not into the guy, then what's the problem?"

 At that same moment, a rich, deep chuckle hits my ears.  My stomach involuntarily clenches and my gaze sharpens on the back of this mysterious Lorenzo.
          
Alessandra sighs. “That is the problem.” She places her hand on my arm and solemnly looks me in the eyes. “You must be careful. Lorenzo is beautiful, and it is not uncommon for a girl to walk away from meeting him with a piece of her heart left behind. But he is just eighteen, and not yet ready for marriage.”

I roll my eyes and laugh, then realize she’s serious. “Yeah, I assure you, there’s no danger on my end. I’m not exactly looking for marriage myself.” Because that would be crazy-town.

Alessandra wrinkles her nose as if she doesn’t believe me, but she removes her hand. We close the distance and Cipriano flashes me an open, honest to goodness, lighthearted smile.

“Lorenzo, this is the cousin I was telling you about.”

Slowly the guy turns and I fall head first into the richest chocolate-brown eyes I’ve ever seen. He blinks and long, luscious lashes feather across his bronzed cheeks. I can feel myself gawking, but I physically can’t drag my eyes away. Lorenzo doesn’t smirk or act all conceited, either. He simply stares back, his eyes casually skimming over me, causing my skin to warm and break out in a whole body tingle.

Time seems to stop, and the sounds of the market mute. Alessandra was right. This boy is beautiful.

And he’s looking at me.





 About the Author:  I'm so glad you stopped to visit my virtual home . . . I promise it's cleaner than my real one! No empty cans of Coke or Diet Mt. Dew lying around. No piles of books and research on the tables, or posters of character sketches on the walls. Here you'll get to see the organized me, and learn some highly interesting facts (I am a very fascinating person), discover more about the books I write (YA and Adult Contemporary Romance, Magical Realism, and Historical, with occasional Paranormal twists), and find some fun and hopefully-helpful linkage along the way.
