Exclusive Excerpt from Fancy Love

by A.F. Zoelle

At the sound of Jules’s cheery greeting, I turned around to face him. My initial response died on my tongue when I saw that he wasn’t alone. Rune was with him, looking like sin itself in a dark gray suit, black shirt, and silver jacquard tie with purple, blue, and red flourishes. In black-rimmed glasses, he resembled a sexy professor I desperately wanted to teach me a lesson.

It was almost impossible to tear my gaze away from Rune, but I forced myself to focus on Jules. I was proud I managed to squeak out the word “Hi,” when inside I was losing my shite over Rune being there with his brother.

Jules was kind enough not to laugh at my response. “How’s it going?”

“Uh, good? Yeah, good. Good is good. Great, actually. Right?” Fantastic, I sounded like an idiot in front of Rune again.

“Right,” Jules agreed, amusement lacing his tone. “I’ll go bug Xander now, so I’ll see you around.”

My heart leapt into my throat when I realized he was leaving me alone with Rune. I dared to glance up at him through lowered lashes, causing my pulse to skyrocket at how beautiful he was. How was it possible for one person to be that attractive? God, and he smelled so fucking good. Was there an aphrodisiac in his cologne? It made me want to lick his neck to see if he tasted as good as he smelled. Where did those weird thoughts keep coming from?

I knew I needed to speak so I didn’t come off as a total gobshite. If I had been outgoing like my brother, it would have been easy to say, “It’s great to see you again. Are you doing well?” Instead, all I got out was a breathy “Um, hi? Again. Hi. Hello. Hi again.”

The corners of his mouth quirked up at my pathetic attempt at greeting him. His voice was smooth as silk as he replied, “Hello, Callum.”

I hadn’t known my name could be sexy until I heard Rune say it. The sound of it on his lips sent shivers through me. It made it exceedingly hard to respond, but I valiantly fought against my ineptitude. “How have you been?” I applauded myself for getting out a complete sentence. It was a serious triumph in the face of his good looks.

“It’s been brought to my attention that I’ve been a shitty friend.” He carded his fingers through his hair, making me feel faint. “I owe you yet another apology.”

“Huh?” I cleared my throat and tried again for a better response. “What? Why?” Oh well, so much for those complete sentences. They were overrated, anyway.

Exclusive Excerpt from Love Means More

by A.F. Zoelle

“You look fabulous, darlin’.” I cringed inwardly when I realized I had said the term of endearment out loud. It had been easy to slip up when he looked so good that I didn’t want to leave the hotel room.

The pink of his cheeks turned even rosier. “Trust me, nobody will look at me with you dressed like that.”

I walked over to him and stepped into his personal space. He studied me with wide eyes, the perfect picture of innocence. Everything in me wanted to lean down and capture his lush lips in a kiss, but I couldn’t. “You’re wrong.” I tried and failed to resist the urge to caress his cheek. “I won’t be able to take my eyes off you.”

Flustered, he put some distance between us. He sounded shaky when he told me, “Stop it. You don’t have to pretend when they’re not here to see.”

“Who said I was pretending?” I did my best to act casual as I walked to the door while my heart raced from being so daring. It took him a moment to follow me downstairs to meet the ladies.

As we waited for the elevator to come, he demanded, “Why are you so fine with this?”

“Because it’s you.”

My answer didn’t seem to satisfy him. “Shouldn’t you be uncomfortable with this farce?”

The doors opened and we entered the empty elevator to ride down to the lobby to meet Sara and Fiona. I skirted as close as I could to the truth without fully confessing how I felt about Augie. “Why? It’s not like I’m lying about you being one of the most important people in my life.” When he didn’t respond, my stupid gob kept going. “I mean, in some weird way, aren’t we basically platonic boyfriends who do everything together but fuck?”

He stared at me in stunned disbelief, unable to formulate a response of any kind. It was completely understandable, given that was a thought I really should have kept in my damn head. When would I ever learn?

Then again, if I was already in this deep, I may as well commit.
