Here's a little teaser from the book "Goldeneyes" by Delia Latham. For more information, check out my book reviews and her blog (the link is on the right-hand side of this page!).
"Meet Hank O'Hare, Juliana. He's the owner and resident rapscallion here at Hole-in-the-Wall. Hard to look at and not the most mannerly sort, but the man can cook like nobody's business."
Hank's steel gray eyes softened as he rounded the counter, offering his hand to Juliana. "Pleased to meet'cha, miss."
