A little preview - Christina Hollis


Things are getting really exciting prior to the launch of my next book, ‘One Night In His Bed’. This gets its UK release in December, so there are only a few weeks to wait until I get the ultimate thrill of seeing it on the shelves in my local bookshop!

Artwork for the USA edition arrived this week. February 2008 sees the launch of ‘One Night In His Bed’ in America, and I’m really looking forward to that.

Here’s a preview of what you’ll find between the covers -

“Within the circle of his arms, Sienna trembled.
‘I could go straight over to that door and escape.’ She tried to convince herself.
‘Of course you could – if you thought anything bad was going to happen.’
Garett’s expression was that of a leopard appreciating its prey. He had not moved since laying claim to her with his hands, but now the smile that had been playing over his lips faded.
‘But it is, isn’t it?’ Sienna said, and then cursed herself silently. She had meant it as a statement. What if he heard it as a challenge? She leaned back slightly against his grip, still trying to keep a decent distance between them.
‘That rather depends on how you define the word “bad”.’
His voice was as smooth as silk. When he let her go, Sienna almost regretted it. Picking up her glass of champagne again, he poured into it another cascade of foam before handing it over. Then he raised his own glass, scrutinising the lines of tiny bubbles fizzing up to the golden surface. His dark, intelligent eyes watched her over the rim of his glass as he took a long, slow draught of the fine wine.
‘I’m a man who always gets what he wants. And the one thing that connects all the things I want is success.’”

I hope that extract has whetted your appetite. ‘One Night In His Bed’ is available from http://www.millsandboon.co.uk/ and http://www.eharlequin.com/. If you visit my web page, http://www.christinahollis.com/, you can click on one of the links.

I have such a weakness for clever, successful men. A razor-sharp mind coupled with dark good looks is unbeatable as far as I’m concerned.

What do you find irresistible in a man?

Great excerpt, Christina! It certainly whets my appetite. And what I love in a man is a very good sense of humor. Good luck with the release!!!

Humor is always a great thing. . . and is all the other stuff mentioned. . . but also too has to like small animals. ;)

Thanks for the excerpt.

I prefer the brilliant and clever type. He has his faults but he to loves the heroine more than anyone else and would do nothing to harm her.

Also, hello everyone. Havent been in here for a while and wanted to also wish everyone "Happy Holidays"
