Praise for WITH EVERY HEARTBEAT:
Excerpt:“Close your eyes. Now listen to the music. Just feel it.” Raphael’s voice comes, low against my ear.
I shiver. In the dark of my mind, my senses are suddenly heightened. I can feel the heat from his body, just inches away, hear the pulse of the music, like a wave rolling into shore.
“Good, relax, just feel it.”
The sensation is overwhelming. The heat of him, the feel of his taut, solid torso pressing against me, the scent of him, deep and musky. With my eyes closed, there’s nothing to distract me, no way to block it out or focus away. Just us: me, him, and the music, nothing else in the world.
Raphael’s hands reach further on my hips, drawing me into him. Our bodies slide together, and the touch is so foreign, so intimate, I find it hard to breathe. To even think. My heart is racing, every nerve and muscle sparkling with electricity. I’ve danced with a partner before, of course, hundreds of times, but that was so different to this sensual rhythm, the thrilling ebb and flow of movement between us, like we’re bound together by the beat, moving as one.
I want to stay locked in this dark, breathless state forever, but I want to see Raphael more. I force myself to open my eyes. And there he is: staring down at me, his face inches from mine.
I catch my breath, dizzy. His dark eyes blaze under the lanterns, echoing everything his body is saying. He’s so beautiful up close, so powerful: a dark angel in the night, awakening feelings I’ve never even dreamed about.
And out of nowhere, I realize the truth. I’ve been telling myself it’s just curiosity pulling me to him, sending me out into the city to find him. But that’s a lie. This isn’t just a fascination, an idle crush, no, this is something deeper, a desire that snakes through my veins, hot and hungry.
I want him. I want all of him.

Excerpt I like:
“He is magnificent, a fallen angel sent to seduce and bewitch, dancing like I’ve never seen before.
Time doesn’t exist; the four walls of the room mean nothing. All that matters is the two of us, dancing together as one.
One heartbeat, one will, one soul. It’s perfection, a dream, to share my passion like this—to make it something greater “him than I ever felt dancing alone.
I dance with him like I’ve only ever dreamed of dancing. And I know I’ll never be the same again.”
