I’m taking a break from Blindsided to share a snippet from my latest steampunk release From Prussia With Love, book 1 in the Victoria’s Secret Agents series. It released this week (insert excited squee;). If you stop by my blog and share your favourite James Bond movie with me, you’ll be entered to win steampunk jewellery. Today is the final day of the contest.

This snippet is only a few paragraphs after last week’s. They have finished the tour of the cargo hold and Garrett asks Clara if she has seen enough and says she has. He’s intrigued and despite everything she’s said still a tad suspicious of her, but the tension between them approaches peak levels. We are in Garrett’s point of view and he speaks first.

“And was it everything you had hoped for?”

She captured his gaze with a sharp one of her own; then she examined her surroundings and chuckled. “It came close.”

Garrett crossed his arms over his chest and blocked the way. “Not good enough. I can’t let you out of here until we’ve fulfilled all your expectations.”

Even in the low light the green sparks in her eyes grew bolder.

His cock hardened further.

She licked her lips, raising his body temperature a few hundred degrees.

Clara Redbeck has one goal: to prove to the sods at work—and to herself—that the best man for the job can be a woman. To do that, she must prevent a traitor from blowing London to bits. If only the dashing first mate of the dirigible she’d been tasked to plunder didn’t set her aflame.

Garrett Dewhurst has one goal: to execute the coup of a lifetime. His plans do not include a spanking dalliance with the most intriguing woman he has ever met.

With each encounter, the fire between them burns hotter and their need grows stronger. Finally, the cramped cabin aboard the Bismarck becomes their intimate playground, where Garrett introduces Clara to the pleasure of submission and they explore their passion in every way possible.

Clara and Garrett want a future together, but each holds a secret that if revealed could cost them everything. When danger closes in, they have to choose between protecting themselves or the whole of London.

I hope you have a wonderful day and a fabulous week.

Happy Writing!

For a chance to win follow me on Twitter (@TinaChristopher) and tweet about the release and the contest using #FromPrussiaWithLove. Or comment on this post and tell me your favourite James Bond movie and why you love it. Each will give you one entry into the contest, which is open worldwide. The contest runs until 12pm EST Sunday August 30th, 2015.

I have to say my favourite is probably Goldeneye with Pierce Brosnan and Sean Bean. I love the action and the characters and it’s one of the few Bond movies where the plot holes are on the smaller side;). When  I worked at Harrods in London I met Pierce Brosnan and he was just wonderful. A complete gentleman and very sweet when a little boy (probably around 6 years) asked him if he was James Bond.

Cover and Title Reveal!

I am super-duper excited to share the cover, book and series title for my upcoming release:
