Kaidan In A Bow - Merry Christmas Sweeties!

Okay, he's not really in a bow, at least not that I can show you.  You'll have to imagine that one. :)

No licking the screen!  (Unless nobody is looking...)
But I DO have a Kaidan gift for you!  I've written a 20 page scene from Sweet Peril from Kaidan's point of view.  If you have not yet read book two, this will be a huge spoiler.  Also, please know that I did not censor Kaidan's thoughts in this scene, so if you're wary of bad language and sexual references you might want to skip this one. I'd say it's still upper-YA appropriate, though.

A little about the writing style - I write a character's voice the way it comes to me. This one came like a stream of consciousness in present tense (which I never write in, so it was strange). I never know what Kai's got in store for me.

Before I share, I want to remind you to please drop by the Epic Reads site to vote for Anna and Kaidan in the Best Couple category of the Book Shimmy Awards!!! You can vote every day.  :)  I'm thrilled that they've made it this far.  

Moving on...so, you want to read this aforementioned Kaidan scene, eh?  Well, here's what you need to do.  Look up, up, up to the top of this page.  Click on "Extras" and it will take you to all of my Bonus Material.  

Enjoy!!!  

Big holiday hugs,
