Today, I'm sharing a snippet from Spread (Lust, Love and Darkness) which is nominated for book of the month at The TBR Pile (any votes much appreciated). I've been working on book 3 and I hope to have it finished soon. Madrid is on lockdown, but I'm working from home which is eating up a lot of my free time.
Stay safe and enjoy reading!

That’s the amount of time Betty has to hang on to her sanity. The time she needs until another of Antonio’s deathversaries rolls by. Four more days before the nightmares subside and the memories return to the past.
The problem is life around her doesn’t stop, and when she meets Rayden, long forgotten passion sparks to life. But can she move on with Antonio’s ghost looming over her?

Time ticks fast and as their desire grows insatiably and the anniversary of Antonio’s death creeps closer, pleasure and pain blend into one.
Rayden doesn’t want to hurt her. But can he keep her from harming herself?
