A Taste of "Leap of Faith"

I've been talking about my upcoming Phaze release so much, I thought I should offer you an excerpt. The book is set in an Incan ruin and in this scene Amaru and Kira are near a fountain. Amaru has just washed his head and upper body.

“I see you found the clothing.” With a slight smile Amaru looked Kira over and she flushed under his attention. “Your beauty puts orchids to shame.”

He stepped closer, the sunlight glinting off droplets of water in his hair and on his broad, muscular shoulders. Kira’s heartbeat quickened and she couldn’t seem to tear her gaze from his.

“The moon will not want to show herself tonight for fear of you outshining her.”

Coming from any other man, that would have sounded corny. In fact, Kira wondered how many women he must have used this line on. Dozens, probably, but for some reason she didn’t really care. He managed to infuse his words with sincerity that reached inside her and made her want to lay back in the soft grass and lift up her dress. She wanted nothing more than to make love with this man in the morning sunshine, even if he was a Peruvian Casanova.

I really like the imagery of him having washed, and the water on his skin. Very nice.
