Giveaway: Below the Belt

This contest is closed. The winner is Baby Girl.

In the mood for an erotic novella?  Author Skye Warren is giving away a copy of her short story, "Below the Belt." Check it out:

Black belt Abe Montgomery is focused on winning gold. But at nationals, Abe meets Paris, a beautiful, mysterious woman. Paris Rivera has sworn off men and martial arts. Her black belt cost her more than years of dedication and sweat. The fight of Abe’s life looms ahead, with his dreams of owning a school and his future with Paris hanging in the balance. He may dominate on the mats, but he’s fallen hard for her. When the time comes for them to part, he may not be able to let go.
Here's a little taste:

When the last of the aftershocks had rocked her body, he withdrew his fingers, then pulled her in close and held her to him. He breathed in the fresh, feminine scent of her, holding back his own release to allow her time to recover. Despite his throbbing arousal, Abe found pleasure in just holding her.

“Who are you, really?” she whispered.

“I’m no one,” he murmured, his face buried in her silky soft hair. “No one special.” It was the truth. He’d grown up too poor and too stupid to be anyone. No matter how hard he fought, he was just another loser from Podunk, Nowhere.

“Oh yeah? A two time national medalist and forerunner on the USA Taekwondo team is nobody?”
Abe lifted his head.

“Yeah, I recognized you,” Paris said.

She didn’t understand. It wouldn’t be enough. Not any of it, not ever. His throat tight, he gave a short shake of his head.

“Oh, Abe,” she said. God, what was that look in her eyes? He wanted to look away from it, but he couldn’t. “You’re someone special. I see it.”

The line wouldn’t come – the one that would make this whole conversation a joke, instead of the truth. He always laughed it off, or fought it off, no matter what came.

Not this time.

These lines got to me, "He’d grown up too poor and too stupid to be anyone. No matter how hard he fought, he was just another loser from Podunk, Nowhere."

Now I want to know more about Abe. I'm adding Below the belt to my must have list.

Thanks,

I've only read one Skye Warren novella and it was amazing, "Beauty Touched the Beast". It was so good for a novella that I recommended it to several of my GR friends, and saw many others reading and rating it. People I recommended this book, all of them loved it as much as I did. Felt good, really. Ms. Warren should write more and full lengh (if I might add) books. Would love to win a copy of "Below the Belt". Thanks for this opportunity. :)

I would love to read this book as the taste you gave us was not enough. A broken man, a woman who can make him believe in himself again and steamy hot sex ~ my kind of book.
