I'll be sharing a sample from Nurtured, as well as a Dear Cupid letter. Enjoy!



Excerpt:

 Rico stared at her until he could find his voice. “I don’t think…I’ve ever met someone like you.”

Her response was an arched brow. “Someone like me?”

“Someone who wasn’t looking for a long-term relationship. A boyfriend. A husband.”

“I don’t need those to be happy.” For an instant, her mocking smile edged toward sadness.

“No, of course not, but it doesn’t stop most people from looking.”

“Well, I’m not, unless you’re in the market for an affair?”

Rico grimaced. “Well, I don’t have a girlfriend or a wife, so technically, I can’t have an affair, can I?”

Nicole shrugged and walked past him to grab a table near the outdoor heater. Big Guy followed her and sprawled beneath her seat. She looked up at Rico. “Why are you staring at me like a specimen under a microscope?”

“Probably because I’ve never had a woman flat out tell me she wasn’t interested in me unless there was some kind of expiration date on the relationship.”

“All relationships have expiration dates. Some are imposed by life. Others—well, let’s just say I prefer to set my own terms. I’m not looking for anything long term, Rico. As long as we both understand that, I’m willing to have a drink or two with you and see where things lead.”

Huh.

It had been one thing when a date, followed by a night together, led to a mutual realization that the chemistry wasn’t enough for a sustainable relationship. As far as he was concerned, he had gone into it with honorable intentions. He had walked away, his conscience clear.
But with Nicole? Rico didn’t even know where to start. He frowned. “I’m a little offended you would dismiss the possibility of a long-term relationship with me out of hand.” 

“I would have thought that most men would be thrilled at the idea of a no-commitment relationship.” 

“Well…” Rico dragged out the word. “Yes, until they don’t.” 



Jade Kerrion defied (or leveraged, depending on your point of view) her undergraduate degrees in Biology and Philosophy, as well as her MBA, to embark on her second (and concurrent) career as an award-winning science fiction, fantasy, and contemporary romance author.

Her debut novel, Perfection Unleashed, published in 2012, won six literary awards and launched her best-selling futuristic thriller series, Double Helix, which blends cutting-edge genetic engineering and high-octane action with an unforgettable romance between an alpha empath and an assassin. Life Shocks Romances features Jade’s sweet and sexy contemporary romance series, which proves that, at the very least, she knows how to alphabetize books.

If she sounds busy, that’s because she is. Jade writes at 3 a.m., when her husband and three sons are asleep, and aspires to make her readers as sleep-deprived as she is.
