MINE TO HOLD – Excerpt Back to Blog
It’s time to share the first excerpt from MINE TO HOLD!
UNEDITED EXCERPT FROM MINE TO HOLD by CYNTHIA EDEN
His fingers slipped under her chin. Claire flinched at the contact and tried to back away from him. Her elbow rammed into the wall of the elevator. “I don’t…I don’t like to be touched.” The words were sharp. They were also true.
But she hadn’t jerked away from Noah because the press of his fingers brought the usual cold fear.
She’d backed away because his touch had scorched her.
“It’s a pity,” he told her as his hand dropped back to his side. “Because I think that I could enjoy touching you.”
The elevator had stopped. She just realized that. How long had it been still? “Ah, why aren’t the doors opening?”
He glanced at the control panel. “Because I haven’t opened them.”
So he wanted the two of them to be trapped together in that elevator?
“Are you afraid of small spaces?” Noah asked her suddenly.
Claire shook her head.
“Good to know.” He inclined his head. “I’m making a list, you see.”
She was totally lost. “A list?”
He pressed a code into the control panel. The doors opened seconds later. “I’m finding out what scares you. What you like. What you don’t like.”
She hurried from the elevator, but then hesitated on the lush carpet in the hallway. “Why does any of that matter to you?”
He shrugged. “Because it does.”
