Happy Hump Day, sweeties.
I have another teaser from Bound to Favor. This is one of my favourite chapters in the story as we see Kamali in his element as a family man and a protector. Enjoy.

Kamali Danladi has sworn never to get married again. But his meddling mother is bent on hitching him to any eligible female that comes along to the next family gathering. There's only one thing for it. Get fake-hitched to his executive assistant. If anyone is more averse to marriage than he is, it's her. So they'll be perfect together. Or at least, they'll fake perfect together.
Ebun Forson doesn't do families. She certainly doesn't do festivities. So when she has to spend a week playing fiancée to her boss, how is she going to cope with the extensive Danladi kinsfolk without breaking out in hives? Her next shopping trip funded by the bonus he's giving her should more than make up for the inconvenience.
However, she soon finds the real threat is to her heart. The dark and intense Kamali behaves as if he sees through to her soul, making her almost forget that this is all an act. In any case, someone with a past like hers doesn’t deserve a happy ever after, surely.
Bound to Favor is a story about learning to heal from emotional pain and finding love in the most unexpected places.
Now for the teaser.
Kamali came down the stairs and found Ebun sitting in the alcove by the foyer. She seemed lost in her thought with a glass of water in her hand.
She’d changed into a long print dress that skimmed her curves. But he couldn’t forget her beauty underneath or how soft and smooth her skin had been.
He sucked in a deep breath and tried to refocus his thoughts on anything but their lovemaking earlier.
Why was he referring to it as lovemaking? It had been sex.
Yet the constriction around his chest said it was more.
She had been totally giving of herself, and he hadn’t been able to help himself from falling into the spell she wove around him. Even without much effort on her part.
Like right now.
At the bottom of the stairs, he coughed to get her attention.
She glanced up and her face beamed.
He loved seeing her smile. A new realisation.
“You look refreshed,” he said as he stretched out his hand.
She placed her hand in his and he pulled her up.
“Thank you. So do you, Mali.” She winked at him.
He grinned. She had a playful side he hadn’t seen before today. And he was rediscovering a side of himself that had been on lockdown for years.
He tugged her close, leaned down to whisper in her ear. “Nawa, when you call me that I think about forgoing dinner and taking you back upstairs.”
Her breath hitched and she lifted her arms around him and whispered back. “Well, if you’re good, I promise you some extra dessert later.”
“Oh, you’re naughty.” He pressed his lips just under her ear lobe.
“So are you.” She rubbed her palms down his chest. “I think we should go find the others before we get carried away.”
