The A to Z April Blogging Challenge 2013 is almost reaching the halfway mark. Can’t believe how fast April is speeding by. I’m co-hosting AZ on Amlokiblogs, so drop me a comment there if you have something to say about the challenge itself. On this blog, I’m featuring mostly indie-published book excerpts for all of April. I love reading, and supporting author-friends, and this is a good way to do both.

“Nice move,” she said, a smile curving her lips. “Now you’re learning.”
Keir stared down at her for a moment. With his own arm trapped beneath her, they lay locked together in a tight embrace, Quin acquiescent in his grasp. The sparring had added a warm flush to her skin. The heat and softness of her body beneath his crowded into his awareness. Even through the coarse fabric of their combat gear, he felt the rapid flutter of her heartbeat.
