** Book Excerpt **
Time gets away from us as we sit catching up, talking about nothing in particular. I glance down at my watch and realize that it is almost two in the morning.
“Come on Zara, let me show you to your room. I know this has been a long day for you.”
He shows me to the bedroom, which is next to his. He walks in ahead of me and turns on a lamp. He hesitates for a moment before taking me in his arms, leaning over gently kissing me on the lips. We gaze at each other, as if uncertain how to proceed. This time he takes charge, nudging my lips apart with his as his tongue begins to probe and explore, an endless tangle of tongues and lips that leave me breathless. I wrap my arms around him as the kiss becomes fervent. I eagerly respond kissing him back wanting more. The moment ends with him holding me, one hand grasp behind my head. Frustrated he holds on then slowly releases his grip.
“I’m sorry, Zara, but I can‘t hide my feelings, no I won‘t hide my feelings anymore.”
“Don‘t apologize. I don‘t want you.”
“It’s late. We both need to get some sleep. I’m so glad you’re here. I’m in the next room if you need anything.” He kisses me before turning and walking out.
“Amadeus?” I walk toward the door and his muscular body reappears.
“Yeah?” he asks, those incredible blue eyes draw me into his trance.
I can’t open my mouth, the sexual tension between us is so thick. My eyes can’t leave his. He’s so close I believe I may smother. “I, uh, I just wanted to say good night.” God Zara, what a crock, I tell myself. You want him so bad you aren’t making sense.
He cocks his head, curiously eyeing me, very aware of the underlying current, looking down at me. “Baby, you have no idea how much I want you. It’s taking every ounce of control I have to stand here and act like a gentleman when what I really want to do is gather you in my arms, throw you on the bed and fuck you senseless.”
Our eyes are still locked. I detect him draw a deep breath, not touching, just staring down at me.
I slowly raise my arms around his neck and pull myself closer, whispering in his ear, “Don’t hold back on my account.”
Jamie Salisbury cannot imagine a life without books. An avid reader of histories, biographies, and romance, it’s only natural that the products of her pen are historical romances featuring characters so authentic they spring forth from the page and shake the reader’s hand. Many of her teen years were spent in Chile, but she and her family were forced out of the country when the political climate demanded it.
Jamie now lives outside of Atlanta, but the love for travel has never abandoned her. Adventure, exploration, and intrigue permeate her prose to the core. These same traits have inspired her to digitally published her first novel, Perpetual Love rather than relegate it to the dreaded drawer. She couldn’t be happier with her decision to grab the publishing industry by the shoulders and force it to pay attention to all she has to offer. Now she returns with her second novel, Tudor Rose.
When Jamie sits down to write nothing can bring her out of creative trance except for her spirited Yorkshire Terrier, Rocco. In those few moments of the day when she is not writing or thinking about writing, she enjoys knitting, photography, equestrianism, and of course, travel.
Jamie hopes her writing will entertain, enlighten, and inspire others to pick up the pen and pursue their own dreams. She loves to be contacted by readers, writers, and history buffs.
