Mid Week Tease: “It’s just the two of us?” #MWTease
Welcome back to Mid Week Tease! This week I’m sharing another snippet from my latest release, Unconventional. I hope you enjoy it!

Hmm, so maybe he’s Edward Knifehands. I suppressed a shudder.
Those stunning eyes—such an unnatural yet beautiful blue—twinkling, he held out his now empty hand. “I’m Maddox Black. Pleased to meet you. And very pleased to have you here.”

Christ, no, Penny. You just ditched one bad boy. The last thing you need to do is swap him for another one.
But then, how bad could he be if he was giving up his own time to work in a soup kitchen? Unless, of course, he was there for a similar reason as I was. “Penny Anderson. Pleased to meet you, too, Maddox. Unusual name, that,” I couldn’t help adding.
