You might have guessed it – the stories from Greenville are far from over. The alphabet has many more letters, and many more Love Letters are in the making! So, what comes after “CC”? Well, “DD” of course! It’s a great pleasure for me to share the first exclusive excerpt from “Daring Duke” today – coming November 2018! Beware, this extract is a draft.

Balls-deep in his hookup on his bedroom rug, Rohan Lawrence-Decker chased—not after orgasm—but the need to escape thoughts of Duke.
Thoughts he should not be having.
Rohan pounded in time to Jack’s heavy grunts, angling to give his hookup the most pleasure. Snapping his hips forward harder. Faster.
He rolled a palm up the Jack’s back, fingertips sinking into sandy hair the same torturous shade as Duke’s. Duke, who lived with him; who had said he was spending the night out with his friends likely looking for a hookup of his own.
Rohan’s throat tightened and he clasped his Jack’s hips and rode him with wild urgency. Rode him like he might rid himself of the frustration that had been yanking in his chest the last year. Rode him like he imagined riding Duke.
Rohan cursed under his breath, and hurried the act. This fuck was a mistake. He was scratching an itch, but instead of relieving himself of thoughts of Duke, they were only getting worse.
Just as well he was leaving for London on an early flight. He needed to get away from the manor. Get away like he’d become a pro at this last year.
He slammed his stinging eyes shut.
Christ. Rohan needed to stop feeling like this. Stop the awkwardness growing between them every time Rohan returned home. Stop loving the bratty, flirty way Duke behaved toward him. Stop the unhealthy desire to jump Duke; kiss him; hold him.
Rohan titled his head back, and quickened his pace. To hold him . . .
That was the hardest itch to ignore.
Rohan folded over Jack’s back and brought his hookup to orgasm, the warmth of their damp skin and imagining Duke beneath him sent Rohan over the edge. He came after Jack, wishing Jack’s satisfied tremble and sigh sounded more like—
A hitched breath and the subtle creak of floorboards behind Rohan snatched all of his senses. He snapped his head around, looking over his shoulder.
Duke stood in the opened doorway between their rooms; a door that Rohan had been sure was shut.
Their gazes caught and held, Duke’s eyes, dark in the shadows. His lips parted slightly in desire . . . no, that had to be shock. They stared at each other, only a moment, but it seemed to stretch. Like Duke didn’t want to look away. Like he couldn’t.
Hope rose in Rohan’s stomach and he fought it.
Duke shivered and the movement had Rohan’s eye falling to the phone in his hand. Held as if Duke had been taking a picture.
Rohan’s stomach knotted. “What are you doing?”
Heart hammering three to one, he pulled out of his hookup. He lurched to his feet, tossing the condom, while Jack scrambled for clothes.
Rohan crossed over to Duke and took the phone out of his hand. Recording. Duke had been recording them. A dozen conflicting emotions punched through him. Anger, frustration, confusion and worse, hope lingered, trying to tell him Duke took the video because he . . .
Rohan swallowed hard.
He wouldn’t let himself assume what it meant. Wouldn’t read into the slight bulging in Duke’s jeans. Wouldn’t drag himself further into thoughts that had taken him hostage for over a year now.
Duke was forbidden.
To mask his frustration, Rohan jumped at the first believable excuse he could find for Duke recording him. He shook the phone in Duke’s face. “Are you blackmailing me? Is this because your dad is handing over SmallQ to me and not you?”
Duke’s expression flickered with surprise and his gaze hardened. “Maybe.”
Maybe. Duke’s ‘whatever-I don’t give a damn’ attitude had been tossed about more and more recently. Their communication—what had once been so easy—had stagnated, and Rohan wasn’t sure anymore how to fix it.
Rohan cuffed Duke’s warm arm and steered him into his own room. He shouldn’t play up this forced anger. Should sit Duke down and work on getting the old them back. But every time he had tried, Duke turned up the brat.
“What did you want to do?” Rohan heard himself snapping. “Send the footage to the tabloids? Crush my career?”
Duke muttered.
Rohan nailed his lie with a line he immediately regretted. “Don’t you have a conscience?”
Duke smiled and flicked him the middle finger. “Probably not. So you’re bisexual?”
Rohan hesitated, half of him pleading himself to apologize, the other half too shook up at the word bisexual. He was closer to gay, to be honest, but that wasn’t something he’d said aloud to anyone other than Bianca.
Rohan deleted the footage and pressed the phone against Duke’s hard chest. Their eyes met again, but this time Rohan couldn’t hold it. He pivoted and strode toward his room.
Duke called after him. “You know I’m gay. Coulda told me, you know.”
 No, Rohan couldn’t have told the guy that he struggled to get out of his mind. The guy who made his chest flutter.
He couldn’t tell Duke anything he really felt. Duke wasn’t just a guy.
He was his cousin.

I hope that got your excitement levels up for “Daring Duke”! Looking forward to sharing many, many more “Love Letters” with you in the future!
XO, Anyta
