Excerpt and giveaway with author Jennifer Lane

Happy Sunday, peeps!  Please join me in welcoming Jennifer Lane, author of the Conduct series.


I’m excited to participate in the Sizzling Summer Author Extravaganza! Thanks for the invitation, Lisa.

Sophie Taylor and Grant Madsen, the heroes of The Conduct Series, invite you to enter a giveaway for an ebook from their romantic suspense stories. Comment on this post and enter to win With Good Behavior (Conduct Series #1) or Bad Behavior (Conduct Series #2).



Here’s an excerpt from the first chapter of Conduct Series #3, On Best Behavior.

“You’re not like my mother, either,” Grant said. “You actually have a backbone.”
Sophie cocked one eyebrow. “Don’t you forget it.”
He laughed.
Turning back to the door, she gave a rueful sigh. “I guess it’s good you realize in advance what kind of woman you’re getting, you know, with this whole ‘til death do us part thing.”
Crystal-blue eyes floated down her spine. “I sure do. It’s a beautiful backbone, by the way.”
His silky voice unnerved her, as usual, and she rapped on the door to distract herself. She didn’t think their inevitable PDA would be appropriate in the church hallway.
Opening the door was a man in his early fifties with thinning sandy hair and intelligent brown eyes that crinkled at the corners when he identified his guests. He stuck out his hand. “Sophie.”
She returned his warm smile during the handshake. “Pastor Tom. Thanks for meeting with us. This is Grant Madsen, my fiancé.”
Tom Kelley shook Grant’s hand too, looking up a bit to meet the taller man’s eyes. He led them inside his office and gestured to two chairs. Sitting across from them behind his desk, Tom noticed a soft blush on Sophie’s high cheekbones, then took in her classy outfit beneath her long camel-colored coat. “You’re looking good, Sophie.”
“Thank you.” She gave an awkward smile, and Grant noticed she seemed especially tense.
Tom leaned forward a bit. “How’s life been treating you since I last saw you?”
“Alright.” She shrugged, adding a nervous chuckle as her hands splayed open, palms up. “No, uh, no handcuffs this time.”
Her forced attempt at humor made Tom frown with sympathy. Confused, Grant lightly grasped one of her roving hands in his. “Handcuffs?”
She eventually met his questioning gaze. “The last time I saw Pastor Tom was my mother’s funeral.”
Grant was beginning to understand her earlier hesitation was about more than cold feet. “You…were cuffed at her funeral?”
“Two CO’s brought me from Downer’s Grove.” She despised the tremor in her voice. “They said I was lucky the warden let me attend.”
Grant couldn’t think of anything more humiliating. Squeezing her hand, his voice was soft. “I’m sorry you had to go through that.”
“I’m sorry too,” Tom interjected, sadness in his eyes. “You didn’t get to properly mourn Laura’s death. And you looked so cold, standing there in the rain.”
“I felt nothing.”
Sophie swallowed, looking up and putting on a brave face. “Anyway, I’m happy to report that’s behind us now. We’re here to talk about moving forward.”
Though Grant still looked concerned, Tom decided to play along. “Then I’m glad it’s all in the past.” His eyes shifted over to Grant. “Sophie’s father told me you two met on your parole officer’s doorstep?”
Grant winced. “Yes, sir—not your most typical hookup spot. Sophie’s dad isn’t exactly my biggest fan.”
“Aw, he’s slowly coming along,” Sophie countered.
Tom hid a smile. “Well, if you can win him over, you can win over anybody.”
“Ain’t that the truth,” Sophie muttered.
