I’ve been doing a lot of snippets from Heat this month, because Kane fits so well in the Bad Boys of Romance and Hot and Deadly blog hops I’ve signed up for, so this weekend, I’ve decided that instead of giving you more of my villain, it’s time show my hero some love. Today’s WeWriWa Eight Lines excerpt (edited to fit) will introduce readers to Tagen, the alien officer who has followed Kane to Earth to bring him to justice, as viewed through the eyes of Daria, a borderline agoraphobic whose rural home Tagen has invaded. Sheesh, the more I try to sum up this book, the more I feel like I have to explain. Anyway, I hope you like it because tomorrow’s Sunday Sneak Peek will be more about Tagen.

Behind her, the bathroom door opened and Tagen emerged, frowning his ‘Can I help you?’ frown. He wore exactly one towel and nothing else and he was beaded liberally with moisture. ‘Wore’ was perhaps a generous word. He was holding it on with one hand, and it hung alarmingly low on his left hip.
“Never mind,” she said at once. “Look, I’ll come back when you have more clothes on.”
Tagen looked down at his towel and then glanced up through the black curtain of his hair. Something in his stoic expression—God knew what—made her blush.
