#TantalizingTuesdays Valentine Blog Hop

Happy Tuesday, folks. Today, we are doing things slightly differently. You still get your tease of 200 words, but you also get the chance of winning some prizes, just for reading and commenting.

So, without further ado, here's mine.

Enjoy my Valentine Surprise...

"Ready?" His large warm hand closed around hers and Sara took strength from the simple contact. Tingles of awareness raced over her skin, and she closed her eyes and took a deep breath. He pulled her close and she buried her head into his shoulder.
"You're shaking like a leaf, sweetheart. It's Valentine's Day, we ought to be celebrating."
She blinked the tears away, and nodded, not trusting her voice at all. Stood on the pavement, in full view of her parent's house, it was only a matter of time, before her father would spot them. She could hear him now, berating her like he always did after Sam's visits.
"Do you have to make such a spectacle of yourself with that … that boy. It's bad enough I have to put up with him, you don't have to flaunt the fact that you're slumming it."
Sam tipped her head up, and she lost herself in the tender expression of his beautiful charcoal eyes.
"He needs to know about..." Her voice trembled and Sam brushed a kiss across her lips, and his hand settled on her barely visible bump, just as the front door flew open.

"What in God's name…"

Click on the graphic to hop along to the rest of the crew, and as always let me know what you  thought of my tease.

I'm giving away two e-books from my back list. Winners will be drawn by random selection on February 15th. Please make sure you leave me your e-mail address, so that I can contact you.

Till next week, folks.
