When she didn’t respond, the devilish twinkle in his eyes dissolved beneath a hollow melancholy. She shrugged off the sympathy it invoked. No doubt it was but another of his tricks to enslave an innocent woman’s heart.
It wouldn’t work with her. She thrust out her chin. “I haven’t seen you at church before.”
“I don’t normally attend St. Michael’s, though now that I know where to find you, I’m sensing a call to deeper spirituality.”
She narrowed her eyes. “The only thing you are sensing is your own carnal nature.”
“Ouch. Milady wounds me deeply.” He pressed a hand over his heart.
“Is everything a joke to you?”
“No.” He sobered. “I find no humor in receiving no response to my many calls upon your home.”
“No doubt you expect me to dash to your side every time you drop off your calling card?”His green eyes flashed. A breeze loosened a strand of hair from his queue and dangled it over his impervious jaw

Anyway, that was fun! Thank you for entering. I have TWO more books to giveaway!! But, first I want to mention a couple of fun things I've put together for you to peruse while you're reading the book, or to whet your appetite further into reading the book!
One is I've created a Pinterest board for Veil of Pearls with pictures of Charleston and how I see the characters, etc.. Here's the Link if you're interested: Veil of Pearls Pinterest Board
If Pinterest isn't your thing, I also have a blog page dedicated solely to Veil of Pearls. It contains much of the stuff I've posted about this month, but there are also some reviews and some pictures of secondary characters. You can find the link at the top of my blog above.
Now for the Video Trailer. If you follow my blog, many of you have already seen this, but I can't help showing it again. It is one of the best trailers I've seen for a book. Enjoy it, leave a comment with your email address and I'll pick 2 winners next week!
And lastly for some news! I am leaving for Jamaica tomorrow!!! It's hubby and I's 20th Anniversary and we are going completely off the grid and hiding away in a plush Caribbean resort. Consequently, I won't be around all next week. But I have my regular posts all set to post in my absence so there'll be plenty to look at while I'm gone. And I'll be sure and get some great pictures. One of the nights, we are going on a pirate cruise!!
Have a great weekend, everyone! God Bless.
