BLURB:  

Annie O’Malley’s dream of owning a secondhand bookstore in tight-knit Audubon Springs is coming true. Still reeling from her parents’ sudden deaths, she believes that signs or messages can be found within the pages of books. She loves her job and has made plenty of friends but longs for the acceptance only love and a family can provide.

Tony Iuliano is there to fix the wiring in her shop. He doesn’t believe in fate, magic, or the power of a good book. All this combined with his sexy-as-sin presence and all-knowing attitude infuriates Annie. The quirky bookworm intrigues him enough to accept her bet to read a book from her shop. When he discovers a stack of fifty-year-old love letters in the book, he wants to leave the past alone, but seeing it as a sign, Annie challenges him to read the letters and search for the long-lost lovers or lose the bet.

While shaking the dust off several ill-fated romances and fighting their attraction at every turn, the pair soon become the town gossip daily special. If they can stop arguing long enough, they may just discover this particular sign was meant for them all along.

“You should leave.” In a few jerky strides she reached the door and swung it open. “Until you can admit why you’re here, I don’t want you here.”

His hand came out of nowhere, startling her. He pushed the door shut and stood behind her, towering over, surrounding her with his heat. “What were you thinking, leaving with Quinn?” His voice rough in her ear, set her every nerve ending on fire.

Shaking, she turned to face him, but he didn’t step back. Instead he leaned on his forearm against the door above her head. Their mouths nearly collided. His scent, of the ball field and man, filled her lungs.

“I didn’t leave with him, he followed me out.” Unlike with Quinn, where she wanted to flee, she wanted Tony to lean forward, press his body against hers, give in to the desire in his eyes, and the heat rolling from him wrapping her in delicious waves.

His gaze shifted to her mouth, he licked his lips then looked back in her eyes. She bit her lower lip. Kiss me! His eyes drifted to her mouth again. He cupped her jaw with his free hand, looked in her eyes, then stepped away with a low curse. “What am I doing?”

“That’s what I’d like to know?” Stunned and frustrated, she leaned against the door. Blood pumped in her ears, a mix of desire and boiling anger. Impossible! How many times was he going to do this to her? Bring her to the edge of desire only to turn away?  Maybe she needed to ask, how many times she’d let him? Chest heaving, she looked at him, a solid wall of muscle and conflicted man.

She’d come to this precipice with him as many times as it took.

    Thank you for featuring Secondhand Romance today on your super sexy site! I love the excerpt you selected. Just a taste of Tony and Annie together is enough to keep me warm during our latest winter storm. Tony doesn’t know what to do about this unexpected attraction for Annie. Yummy opposites attract. Lots of friction.
