 Excerpt from "Love's Sweetest Truth," third in the "Castle in the Sun," romance book series.

Overseas on business, can the newly married Carlos resist an old flame?
At the close of another busy day, Carlos entered his hotel room, mentally and physically spent. Wanting to get comfortable, he slipped off his shoes and removed his jacket, draping it over a chair. He loosened his tie, taking it off, then his shirt and undershirt, baring his muscled chest and arms. He stretched to loosen up.

He was unbuckling his belt, when he caught a whiff of intoxicating perfume, sifting through the cracked-open bathroom door. A melodious giggle wafted through. The laughter had a familiar ring.
A woman’s seductive voice spoke in French. “Nice show, Carlos. Don’t stop now.”
Carlos whipped around to the sight of a curvy young brunette wearing a sheer négligée.
“Monique! What are you doing here?” he gasped in French.
The musical giggle sounded again as she sashayed over, caressing his face with her hand. “What am I doing here? Don’t you mean what are you doing here without contacting me like you always do? I saw you in the lobby. I thought we had an arrangement.”
“How did you get into my room?” Carlos blurted, staring in disbelief.
She lifted her face to kiss him. “Let’s just say I came in with the maid.”
Feeling the need for intimacy, Carlos . . ..

Will Carlos succumb to Monique's charms or will he stay faithful to his new wife?
Find out in Love's Sweetest Truth, book 3 in the Castle in the Sun romantic-suspense series.
