Exclusive Excerpt from Finding Alexander
by Pandora Pine
Just one taste, I promised myself, knowing it was a lie. It was one more sin to add to my tally for the day. My tongue came out to lick against his thick, full lips, but I was in for a surprise. Instead of tasting his lips, Dillinger’s tongue was suddenly rubbing against my own. Great minds kissed alike.
After the way I’d acted there was no way I deserved to be kissed like this. Not by the man who’d borne the brunt of my dickish behavior. Anubis help me, I couldn’t stop.
Dillinger’s hands came up to my chest. With a small push, he backed away from me. Dawning of what we’d just done filtered through his green eyes.
“You need to eat.”Dillinger shook his head. Maybe he was trying to shake the remnants of our kiss off himself, or maybe his head was still spinning like mine was. “Martyring yourself through starvation won’t help anyone.”
Damn…Was Dillinger even speaking English. I could still feel the ghost of his kiss on my lips and his fingerprints on my heart. Wait! What?
Before I knew what was happening, Dillinger was grabbing my arm and half-dragging me to the table. Pressing down on my shoulders, he pushed me into the chair in front of the tray. With my head in the clouds over the kiss and the revelation that Dillinger had possibly cracked the wall of iron, wrapped in concrete covered by ice around my heart, the last thing on my mind was food.
“Don’t make me force-feed you.”Dillinger’s eyes glittered with menace as he slid into the seat across from me.
“I didn’t say talk. I said eat. I’ve got plenty to say for the both of us.”His face was all business now. There was no hint at all of the heat there had been flashing over between us only a few minutes ago.
About Finding Alexander
Indiana Jones meets Clark Kent in this modern-day treasure hunt.
Archaeologist Cairo Vanderbilt was born to be a treasure hunter, whether he liked it or not. When his famous father dies in search of the tomb of Alexander the Great, Cairo picks up the trail to find the world’s most famous lost treasure. Having failed once before, he’s determined to find Alexander’s remains and fulfill his family’s legacy.
History blogger Dillinger DeCosta has only written about the past from the safety of his South Boston office. After hearing Cairo speak about the coming expedition on the evening news, he wants to join the hunt for Alexander and finally be on the front lines of history-in-the-making. By offering to come along, Dillinger is taking a huge risk, but he’s banking on an even bigger reward.
Hot on Alexander’s trail, Cairo and Dillinger discover sparks between them that ignite unexpectedly. One of the men has a secret that may threaten not only the success of the expedition, but their new relationship as well. If they can’t find a way past the challenge that lies between them, they might just lose the greatest treasure of all.
