Title: Affliction

Author: Marilee Brothers

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Book Blurb:


Twenty-two-year-old Honor Melanie (Mel) Sullivan has an affliction. Due to childhood trauma and inappropriate social behavior, she is diagnosed with Aspergers, a form of autism. But, Mel knows Aspergers is not her true affliction. She prefers not to gaze into a person’s eyes because she is a soul reader, and what she sees can be frightening. It can also get Mel into trouble. After a brush with the law, Mel leaves her family home in Southern California and travels to Oregon where she meets Harley-Davidson riding William McCarty (Billy the Kid) and stumbles upon a human trafficking/baby-selling scheme involving a foreign girl from Kazakhstan, and others. Even though Mel's life is in danger, she won't stop until she finds the answers that will help those unable to help themselves.


Excerpt:


His cheek scrapes across mine, his mouth just inches from my lips. “Look at me, Minnie,” he whispers. “Tell me what you see.”


I lift my gaze and stare into his eyes, fully expecting to see my own face, possibly streaked with bits of sticky syrup and framed with flattened helmet hair. Nothing scary. Just something I’d rather not experience right now. But someone changed the channel.

My breath hitches in my chest. “Fire,” I say. “I see a smoldering fire.”


Billy’s mouth grazes my cheek. “Smoldering, huh? Let’s make it burn hotter.”


His lips touch mine, tentative at first, until I wrap my arms around his neck and try to climb inside his skin. He deepens the kiss, his silky tongue slipping into my mouth. I’m transported to another place. My world consists of all things tactile. The sound of our breathing. The smell of his leather jacket. The warmth of his body against mine. The softness of his lips. The heat spiraling through my body like wildfire. More. I want more.

I’m brought back to earth by the sound of a honking horn and a raucous shout, “Hey, you two, get a room!”


Embarrassed, I push away from Billy and stare at the ground, trying to get my breathing under control. Billy grabs my hand and kisses the back of it like an errant knight wooing a fair maiden. This strikes me as hilarious and I snort laugh. Also embarrassing.


Billy releases my hand and tilts my chin back. “I’m not leaving until you look at me one more time. I promise you, it’s safe.”

If money were no object and there wasn’t a pandemic circling the world, where would you go for a Spring Break vacation and why?


I would love another trip to Ireland. The people are friendly and actually like Americans. The pubs are great. I was there in 2007 and kissed the Blarney Stone. Shortly after, I received a contract for the first of my twelve books. Coincidence? Maybe.


What’s your favorite thing about Spring and why?


The beauty of the world around me waking up after a long, cold winter. The sweet sound of songbirds. Daffodils and tulips poking through the earth as if checking to see if it’s safe to bloom.
