First Page Peek – Hidden Fire (First Time Peek too)

Hidden Fire, Book 2 in the Fire Series, and a novella in the Red Hot Weekend anthology is so sparkly brand new it hasn’t even released yet. You’ll need to wait til the 31st of Jan to read this beauty. But in the meant time, here’s a sneak peak of the first page.

First Page of Hidden Fire

Chapter One

Blue Mountains, New South Wales, Australia

Jackson Brooks lifted his glass in the air and held it out in a toast. “Happy birthday, sis.”

Jenna clinked her glass with his, careful to keep the orange juice from sloshing over the side. “Happy birthday to you too.” She grinned at her twin. “You having a good one so far?”

Jackson looked at her, a half smile on his lips. “Never thought turning thirty would change my life. But it has.”

Jenna laughed. “A little melodramatic, don’t you think?” There was no one else she could tease as openly as her brother. No one else in the world she felt this comfortable with. Except maybe for her best friend, Rachel.

“Perhaps.” He shrugged. “It’s just made me think, is all. Made me assess what’s important.”

“Philosophy? This early in the morning?” The two were sharing a quiet, celebratory breakfast in the hotel dining room. “So tell me, Socrates, what conclusions have you come to? What is important in your life?”

Jackson met her gaze, his expression intense. “The usual I guess. Love. Life. Healing.”

Her breath caught. “Healing?”

“Healing enough to live life to the fullest,” Jackson elaborated. His gaze did not waver.

No, Jackson, please. Don’t bring this up. “And are you? Living life to the fullest, I mean?”

“Are you healing?” he asked.

She bit her lip. “Nice birthday conversation.” Not. “Mind if we change the subject?”
