One of the things I love to read in books is a great party scene. Imagine it: good guys and bad guys dressed up in cool formal wear and then all hell breaks loose.
So, of course, I had to put such a scene in My Boyfriend Merlin.
Here is a teaser:
CHAPTER 16 – A Christmas Party to Remember
I spent the morning sparring with various candidates. By late afternoon, I’d slipped on a gorgeous silver gown cut to emphasize every curve I had. I used a red cashmere shawl to cover up most of the skin shown off by the scoop-necked dress.

Grey came up beside me. He wore a breathable black suit and a red button-down shirt. He tugged at his collar and loosened a white Christmas tie. He arched a brow……
……My mouth opened in awe as we stepped inside the foyer. Lush garlands, delicate ornaments, fresh bright red poinsettias, and stone water fountains decorated the hall leading up to a lush Grand Staircase.
