Welcome to Sunday Love-in! This is a new feature where an author shares one of their favourite smexy-time scenes from their latest book, tells us the reason for their choice and then shares the scene with us with a delicious excerpt. Enjoy.

The romantic leads in The Conduct Series are two law-abiding citizens who unwittingly got mixed up with a Mafia capo, Logan Barberi, which led them both to prison sentences. The story begins as Sophie and Grant are starting parole and attempting to rebuild their lives and their dignity.

Sophie Taylor is a former psychologist who’s an intelligent, spunky, strawberry-blond beauty. She has a tendency to open her heart to wounded people, including the “bad-boy” boyfriends littering her past. Grant Madsen is a former Navy lieutenant who’s hard-working and kind, with dark Italian features and stunning crystal-blue eyes. He has a penchant for brooding and self-sacrifice. Their paths collide outside their parole officer’s door, and both have no idea about the explosive hidden connection waiting for them like a ticking bomb down the road.

I chose this particular scene as I’m a big fan of first kisses!

Grant frowned. “Seems like there was something I wanted to do in the cab last night, but I didn’t get a chance. What was that?”

With his free hand he tapped his chin while Sophie studied him, almost bursting with anticipation.

“Ah, now I remember!” he cried. “I wanted to do this.” He pulled her toward him and gathered her in his arms as his hand lovingly cradled the back of her neck. She stopped breathing as he leaned down—ohmigod, the Adonis was about to kiss her—and planted the softest, most sensual kiss on her lips.

Time stood still on the busy Chicago street.

She drew her hand to his face and gently stroked his cheek as their lips melted together. Their first kiss lasted far longer than a chaste peck, but not so long that Sophie lost the ability to stand. But the intensity and spine-tingling power of his exquisite lips caressing hers lingered long after he let her go.

Sophie glanced around and was relieved that nobody seemed to be staring. “You, uh…” She cleared her throat. “You remembered what you started in the cab.”

He smiled, noticing the flush of her cheeks and the fire in her eyes. “Kissing you on the cheek was only the beginning, Sophie.” He gave her hand a squeeze. “I may have been drunk, but I would never forget kissing your beautiful face.”

Jennifer-Lane-AuthorPeople fascinate the psychologist/author (psycho author) known as Jennifer Lane. Her therapy clients talk to her all day long about their dreams and secrets, and her characters tell her their stories at night. Jen delights in peeling away the layers to scrutinize their psyches and emotions. But please rest assured, dear reader, she isn’t psychoanalyzing you right now. She’s already got too many voices in her head! Stories of redemption interest Jen the most, especially the healing power of love. She is the author of The Conduct Series – romantic suspense for adult readers – and recently completed the third and final installment: On Best Behavior. Streamline is her first foray into writing for young and new adults, but she’s found this sort of writing even more fun. A former college swimmer, Jen was able to put a lot of her own experiences into this book. Whether writing or reading, Jen loves stories that make her laugh and cry. In her spare time she enjoys exercising, attending book club, and hanging out with her sisters and their families in Chicago and Hilton Head.
