Kicking It releases tomorrow, Dec. 3, but we’re going to give you a taste now. Below we have a snippet from Shannon K. Butcher’s story “Stolen Goods.”

Plus, at the end of the post you’ll find a chance to win the book, swag and other goodness.


Shannon K. Butcher’s “Stolen Goods” excerpt

Simone hesitated for just a moment before reaching out to touch the leather’s surface. She drew the tip of one finger over the markings, following their winding path around the edge. “You’re right. It matches my boots perfectly.”

“I promised it would.”

She gave a dismissive snort. “Men promise me impossible things all the time.”

Shannon K. Butcher has penned more than eighteen titles, including the paranormal romance series the Sentinel Wars, the action-romance series the Edge, and a handful of romantic suspense novels and works of short fiction. Find her online: Website, Twitter and Facebook.
