Sneak Peek: The Hunted in Summer Heat

Soon, on May 24th, readers will get the chance to enjoy 16 new, never before seen, novellas from bestselling authors in the romance industry. Time for a peek now..

Today’s sneak peek into what’s available in this set comes from multi-award winning author, Jackie Ivie.

Her novella, The Hunted, is first in a new series, Chronicles of the Hunter.

Excerpt from The Hunted

She lifted her head. She might have glanced toward him. He didn’t check. He was in a realm of suspended motion, while pretending to regard the row of stalls facing them. She craned her

neck, turning away to look over exactly what he was. And that just put her perfect bosom on display! Despite the idiocy of it, Kane glanced down. One breast was getting smashed and lifted by contact with him. The other was barely held in check by her little bikini bra. As he watched, the pink tone of her skin went darker. She turned back to him, but didn’t look up. She was focused on the approximate area of his upper chest.

“Oh. Geez. I am so sorry,” she whispered.

“You have to do something for me, LeeAnn. Okay?”

“I don’t know what got into me.”

“Don’t move. Okay? Don’t even twitch.”

“Kane. Um—.”

“I’m about to do something really stupid. Ill-advised. And dangerous.”

She lifted her gaze to his. Making eye contact with her was a huge mistake. Even through his dark lenses. The connection sent a swell of sound through his ears while a bolt of electricity shot through him, singeing skin the entire way.


Her mouth made the gesture. She may have said it. He didn’t hear anything except a long, drawn-out, perfectly pitched note. He couldn’t think. He just stood there, vibrating with the effort of keeping everything checked. Held in place. Locked.

Her eyebrow lifted as she waited. And Kane replied with something his mind hadn’t cleared.

“I am going to kiss you.”

She gasped. Her lips curved slightly in a smile. Despite the hold he exerted everywhere, he almost returned it.

“You are?” she asked.

He licked his lips. “Yeah.”

Oh. Shit.

She moved.
