Hello Romance Readers!
Today I welcome author Kenzie Michaels to my blog. She’s sharing an excerpt from her latest romance, Off the Clock. Check out the blurb and a short excerpt below.
Cara has put her social life on hold while caring for her elderly mother. But after her boss helps her through a crisis, she can’t deny their attraction. Romance and Alzheimer’s don’t mix… or do they?
“Austin! Where did you find her?” His best friend Ryan clapped him on the back. “She’s fantastic, man! Nothing like Leslie.”
“She answered my ad in the paper. She’s my office assistant.” Austin Harmon took a sip of his drink and followed her with his eyes as she paused to speak with an elderly couple.
“You lucky dog! You banging her or is she taken?” Ryan adjusted his striped tie.
A flash of anger welled up. “Stay away from her,” Austin warned. “Leslie left my office records a mess and Cara finished sorting everything out today. She’s a dream come true.”
“I’ll say. And are you kidding? Andrea would string me up alive if she even caught me looking at another woman. I was just thinking of you, man.” Ryan smiled and held out his hand.
Austin shook it. “After the Leslie fiasco, no more office romances. Harmony House doesn’t need any more visits from the Health Department.” He spotted one of his suppliers moving toward him and disengaged his hand. “Excuse me a moment. Drew! How are you?”
“I’m doing well, Austin. Tell your young lady the delivery will be made at nine o’clock sharp on Thursday, and that I’m tossing in a surprise for her at no charge.” The middle-aged man with the bad comb-over smiled and pumped Austin’s hand. “I had no idea you had plans to improve the snack bar by the pool. Excellent idea, and I’ll be glad to fax over the new supply list in the morning.”
Austin’s smile froze. “New supply list?” he repeated.
Drew Daniels looked puzzled. “Yes, for the new line we just started last month, for healthier snacks. Didn’t Leslie tell you? I sent her the form a month ago. Cara called me yesterday, and I told her more about it earlier tonight.”
“Oh, that supply list.” Austin recovered from his slip. “I’m sorry; Cara did mention it, but we haven’t really had a chance to discuss it in detail. And Leslie is no longer in charge of my office.”
“Yes, so I’ve heard.” Drew adjusted his glasses. “If you don’t mind me saying this, I’d give Cara a raise. That girl has worked her magic. Everyone I’ve spoken to has sung her praises tonight, in a way they never spoke about Leslie, no offense.”
I’m definitely intrigued and would love to know more about how Austin and Cara’s romance progresses! I guess I should click on one of the links below!
