Yippee! I haven’t done a Sneak Peek Sunday in ages and very excited to reveal to readers my very first excerpt from IN TOUCH (current working title), my latest New Adult sport romance. This baby has evolved in so many ways. Not only the title and series, but POV and genre. I have shifted it to New Adult like my other series, which makes total sense and I’ve added the heroine’s POV. Originally, it was only the hero, Padraig’s, but when submitted to my editor and also to another agent, both agreed there was something missing. Before, Gillian wasn’t so real to me, but simply Padraig’s romantic interest, part of the story that propelled his conflict forward. Now, she is essential. I adore her now, quirky and wonderful, and has her own storyline. It’s a bit strange, though, as their stories were told almost a year apart, and I see such differences in their voices, in my writing style, where my head was last year compared to now.
Anyhoo, enough of that. Hope you enjoy! This excerpt is from the first chapter when Padraig and Gillian first brush feathers. (note, that this hasn’t been edited, and edited work is fab storytelling. I see all the POV filters now!)
This is a sexy picture of an English rugby player, while Padraig is IRISH, taller and darker with bright blue eyes (so Irish and what an accent!) but I do love this pic. It’s my personal ambition to spread the word on the sexiness of rugby.
I also have the famous Miss Desiree Holt as my Nut today on my blog Sundae With Nuts – Pop on over, I’m so chuffed (and a bit star-struck) to have her as a Nut.
