#TeaserTuesday #BookoftheWeek Making Scandal by @KiruTaye #multicultural

Welcome back to Teaser Tuesday hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading where we share (no spoiler) teasers from books we're currently reading.

This week I'm featuring Making Scandal by +Kiru Taye, Author the second book in the contemporary romance series, The Essien Trilogy. I love this scene because I could feel my heart thumping in anticipation too.

Here's my teaser:

He straightened and moved into the hallway.
Prey. She was being stalked. Hunted.
The rush of blood thundered in her ears, and her eyes widened, half in apprehension, half with a sense of anticipation she’d never felt before. Pull yourself together, Faith. There must have been way too much vodka in her mixer.
~ page 21, ePub, Making Scandal by Kiru Taye

Here's the blurb:

Sassy, successful Faith Brown has earned her place in the boardroom through hard work and sheer ambition. Making family is not on her agenda when there are businesses to develop and competitors to outdo. So when a casual affair with smooth and irresistible tycoon Mark Essien leads to an unplanned pregnancy, she’s determined not to make the mistakes her mother made by living with a man just for the sake of her child.

For Mark, personal matters have no place in the boardroom. Spotting the perfect opportunity, he ruthlessly launches a takeover bid for Faith’s Investment Brokerage firm. Finding out he’ll soon be a father, he knows he can’t let the indomitable and sexy Faith go through with her plans of single parenthood. All gloves are off. He’ll seduce her by any tactic necessary if it means his child doesn’t suffer the same stigma he did as a child.

With the media dogging their affairs in the boardroom and the bedroom, they find that making family is harder than making scandal.

My thoughts:

If you love your romance heroes sexy and full of swagger and your heroines smart and strong, then this is the romance for you. Plus the vivid descriptions of Africa and the cultural setting make for a wonderful read.
