I have some exciting news this morning… I finished Ilsa and sent it off to the proofreaders!
For those of you who are anxiously awaiting, here’s a little excerpt:
Her gaze landed on an equally handsome man, although not nearly as tall or big as Kade. He was about the same height as Aundy with a head full of thick, dark hair and broad shoulders. His amber-colored eyes snapped with humor and excitement while white teeth gleamed behind a friendly smile.
He took Ilsa’s hand in his, letting his gaze linger attentively on her face.
“Aundy never said her sister was the most beautiful woman to ever walk the earth.” Tony kissed her fingers and held onto her hand.
“And who might you be?” Ilsa asked, thinking the man bore a striking resemblance to Aundy’s friend Caterina. He obviously possessed more than his share of charm.
“I am Antonio Valentino Campanelli, your future husband.” Tony was as surprised by the words that flowed out of his mouth as the rest of the group. He had no idea where they came from.
Ilsa gasped and jerked her hand away from his before taking several steps back, until she stood partially behind Aundy. What kind of crazy man did her sister consider a friend?
“Tony, stop teasing,” Caterina said, smacking her brother’s arm and pointing to Ilsa. “Can’t you see you scared the poor girl half to death with your silliness?”
“But, I…” Tony started to argue that he wasn’t being silly. He was dead serious. More serious than he’d ever been in his life.
