Book Blitz & Giveaway: Forever Again [The Cordoba Agency 05] by Delaney Diamond!


   She smelled like heaven. She preferred handmade soaps, and the scent of one of her favorites—coconut and hibiscus—followed her out of the bathroom and clung to her skin. She owned the same fragrance in a body lotion, and the smell brought back memories of the scent of coconut and hibiscus left in his sheets whenever they had met up over the years.
   “Are you hungry? There isn’t much here besides chips, cookies, and chocolate.” Hossam held a few of the options in his open palm.
   “I’d just like to go to sleep.”
   “As you can see, there is only one bed.”
   The comment hung in the air between them for several seconds before he replaced the snacks in the small fridge.
   “Yes, I see,” she finally said. “I know we have history, but I want to be clear—I’m not going to sleep with you. Let me rephrase that. I’m not going to have sex with you.”
   Hossam walked slowly toward Alissa and noted how her body tensed. “As much as I would love to spread your lovely legs and bury myself inside you”—he heard her sharp intake of breath—“I did not invite you here to have sex. I invited you because you need a place to stay.”
   She swallowed. “Okay,” she said throatily.
   “Now, if things change and you decide you want to do more than sleep…” He let the suggestion dangle between them as he looked down at her, certain the desire curling in his belly reflected in his eyes.
   “That won’t happen.”
   He shrugged. “I had to try.”
   Alissa rolled her eyes but smiled a little, and it was amazing how something so small could create a burst of happiness inside him. He had missed her smile. There was a time when he could make her smile and laugh with ease, and he hoped that could happen again.

To get a second chance at love, two assassins must survive a criminal enterprise determined to wreak havoc in America’s Paradise.

Alissa Francis is at home on St. Thomas, USVI when Hossam Jalal—her former lover and biggest mistake—arrives unexpectedly. Then a bomb detonates in the middle of the capital, killing a prominent member of the community, setting the island on edge, and propelling Alissa into action.

Hossam initially came to the island to win back Alissa’s affection, but now he joins forces with her to uncover the motive behind the violence. The duo embarks on an investigation that leads them down the twisty path of a local legend and forces them to take the matter of saving the island into their own hands.
