Read an Excerpt
From Delilah Devlin’s “Hunk of Burning Love”…
The barbeque ribs she’d put into the oven before her shower filled the air with their aromatic scent. When she finished rolling her hair in large rollers to make her straight blond hair look fluffy rather than flat, she’d place the potatoes in the oven to let them bake. She’d already finished chopping coleslaw and had set it in the fridge to chill. The table was set. Music was preprogrammed, old Motown hits, because she hoped he’d like to dance to “My Girl”—she’d always wanted a handsome man to dance with her in her living room.
Kelly wrapped one last lock of hair onto a large pink roller and stood back. Her makeup was subtle, her lipstick the same soft pink color as the panties and bra she stood in. She hoped he’d get a chance to see how much effort she’d taken to make the night perfect.
Benny Smith was one hunk of a man. She’d thought so before he’d injured himself and hadn’t minded at all the love handles or the extra weight that had filled out his torso. She’d always thought of him as a big cuddly bear. Now, his face and waistline were trim. She’d thought that, after his transformation from cuddle-bear to muscled sex god, she wouldn’t stand a chance of getting him to take notice of her.
Now, she was the one with a few extra pounds. She pinched her side then palmed her rounded belly. Lord, maybe the pretty underwear had been a waste of money because no way would she let him see her with the lights on.
A shrill beeping sounded from the kitchen, and she cursed. She hoped like hell she hadn’t burned dinner. She picked up a magazine to wave at the smoke detector and hurried to the kitchen.
When she arrived, she saw a blaze burning inside her gas oven and panicked.
“Oh, Lord! Jesus. Fuck. What do I do now?”
