Seduction In The Shed & A 77p Book Sale

My novel How Do You Spell Love? is on sale today with the book available for just 77p on Amazon.

It's a contemporary romance with a twist - there's a spot of magic in the air and it's looking as though a love spell may have gone horribly wrong...

Here's a short extract, taken from a scene between Summer and Tom, in the shed on her Yorkshire allotment....

“So, how was your weekend with your parents?” Tom asked as he settled into a deckchair, looking every bit at home in her allotment shed. Even in a suit.
“It was good,” replied Summer, her back to him as she filled the little kettle from the bottle of mineral water she’d brought with her, searching for matches to light the small bottled gas stove. Now they were both here, alone within the cramped confines of the shed, she felt awkward.
She jumped and tried to turn to face him. It was then that she realised he was close. Very close. Standing right behind her in fact.
“Summer,” he repeated.
“Yes,” she just managed to utter.
“Is there anything between us?” For a few seconds he was silent and Summer held her breath. “Or at least the potential for something between us?”
So. The moment of truth. Summer could ignore the fact no more.
Her back still to him, she replied, “Yes, there’s something.” 
Would now be a good time to admit about Rob leaving? But Tom was still with Lucy, wasn’t he? If she admitted she was no longer in a relationship but he still was…
Before she could say anything else she felt his arms slip slowly around her waist, she felt him lean in close, a gentle kiss on her neck. Part of her screeched that this wasn’t right – she’d only just split from Rob and hadn’t, for want of a better phrase, yet achieved closure on their relationship. She wasn’t even sure how she felt about him leaving yet. Was she upset? Relieved? A bit of both perhaps?
Tom kissed her again, this time on the opposite side of her neck. The goodie-goodie voice in her head continued to shout, this is wrong, this is wrong. He’s involved. It’s too soon.
She chose to ignore the voice and turned in his arms, meeting his lips, kissing them hungrily. After a few moments he led her across to one of the chairs and gently pulled her down onto his lap.
 “There’s something you should know,” Tom said quietly.
