Excerpt from Emma Locke’s “The Problem with Seduction”

“I’m not going to kiss you.” His warm breath tickled her hair.

“Why not?” The side of her mouth moved against his coat. The soft wool smelled like him.

The weight of his arms settled against her shoulders. His palms ran down her spine and pulled her even tighter against him. “You sound disappointed.”

“I wouldn’t mind if you kissed me. But I wouldn’t go so far as to say I’m disappointed.” She tried to sound haughty, but he only laughed.

He rested his chin against the top of her head. “You smell good.”

Her cheeks heated. “I was thinking the same about you.”

“Oh? And what do I smell like? Dust and spilled milk, I imagine.”

She smiled against his coat. He did smell a bit like Oliver. “It’s nice.”

“I’m glad you think so. Now I know whether or not babies should be bounced while traveling in carriages.”

A native Oregonian, Darcy lives on the edge of wine country with her devoted husband, their two great kids, and two Bengal cats. In her “spare” time Darcy is a serial volunteer enrolled in a 12-step program where one learns to say “no,” but she keeps having to start over. She’s also a fair-weather runner, and her happy places are Disneyland and Labor Day weekend at the Gorge.

Emma Locke is a writer and engineer living in the Pacific Northwest, where she loves hiking with her dog, hot yoga and riding out the annual 330 days of rain. Hiking and yoga give her time to plot, the lack of sun makes for perfect writing weather, and as for her day job, the dichotomy seems to work: her analytic side ensures her passionate, satisfying love stories don't mulch under her bed, and her author side forces her to keep writing more.
