Cover Reveal and #SampleSunday - No Pain, No Gain

Book 2 of the Latter Rain series is coming 2/16/16 so I thought I'd share an unedited sample to whet you appetite. Enjoy!!

He walked down the row, stopped at the girl next to me, and I inadvertently rolled my eyes. She was a cookie cutter version of the other girls—tall, lean, and light, bright, damn near white. I scoffed softly when he leaned in and whispered in her ear. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw his head snap up and in my direction. His soft eyes met mine and something inside of me melted a bit. “Did you say something?” he asked.
His voice.
I’d heard it before, knew it well, but there in the same room with me, it was so soft, so gentle, so… sexy. I was left speechless.
“Okay,” he said. “Let’s try this: what’s your name?”
“Chelly,” I said, giving him my self-assigned professional name.
“Chelly. I like that.” He left the girl next to me and stood directly in front of me, a couple of inches taller than me in my uncomfortable heels. I stared at him against my will and my eyes took in those sad brown eyes, smooth tan skin that boasted his half-black, half-Puerto Rican heritage, and thin lips that I already knew would eventually part into a pristine white smile. No facial hair. He was a beautiful man, more beautiful than any woman I’d ever seen. He leaned in close to my ear; minty breath brushed my skin as he whispered, “I think we’d go good together. You?”
