Thank you for having me today, Kacey. I’m thrilled that Unexpected Destiny is finally here.
I’ve put together a list for you about the five things I LOVE about this story and this series. Enjoy!
- The heroine is named after one of my readers. Liz and I met years ago through a Facebook party. She’s been a loyal reader and we’re now great friends. The heroine’s last name has a family connection and she named one of the villains too. The friends I’ve met on this author journey are the single BEST thing to happen to me. Friends Rock!
- Aidan and Liz. They make me swoon. Also, they could have met a dozen different times in their life, similar to me and my husband, but they met when the timing was just right.
- Unexpected Destiny is my longest story to date. Always thought my best stories wouldn’t go much past 100 pages, but this one comes in at 150. I never wanted to write longer and then have a sagging middle. This story certainly doesn’t. Can you tell I’m proud of this one?
- When I started this series, I had no idea I was writing romantic suspense. Yes, I knew I was writing about assassins, but the suspense came very naturally to the stories. It’s been a lot of fun.
- This story is releasing in the same week, THREE years later, from my very first release. ❤

WHERE YOU CAN FIND BOOKS BY S.J. MAYLEE:
Exclusive Excerpt for Kacey’s Readers:
He ran upstairs and kept moving until he reached his door. Respect for Elizabeth filled him. She’d faced a lot in the last year and she still held her shit together. Little did she know she was trading a husband who probably abandoned her, or worse, for a night with an assassin.
He wouldn’t delude himself into thinking he was good enough for her. There was no way to know how this was all going to play out, but first things first. The woman deserved pleasure and he had no problem taking her there as many times as he could while he figured it out.
He pressed his ear to his door and listened while his heartbeat calmed.
Too much silence.
He pushed open the door and slipped inside. He found her standing at the sink, naked as the day she was born, and gazing out his kitchen window at the full moon. Moonlight draped over her pert nipples and down to the top of her perfect soft ass.
He pushed the door shut with some force to announce his entrance.
She turned and peered at him over her shoulder. “Hi.” She toyed with her silky chocolate hair. “You told me to get comfortable.”
“I’m glad you did.” He took slow controlled steps toward her, taking off his shirt and slipping off his shoes as he went. His need to act like a gentleman flew away as his cock stiffened. Damn, she was fucking gorgeous.
The moonlight danced off her eyes to the tops of her breasts.
He licked his lips. “You look good enough to eat.”
She turned fully toward him right as he reached her. He clamped hold of her nape and sealed his lips over hers. Intense heat flowed through him and stiffened his dick. He wanted inside. With a push of his tongue, she granted him access and he invaded her mouth, brushed along her tongue in languid sweeps.
He caressed her neck with one hand and the other found her breast. The soft pillow swelled in his hand. He pulled until his fingertips found her nipple and he pinched.
She pulled free from his lips and gasped. “Ah, it hurts but don’t stop.” She arched into his hand. “I love how that feels.”
Latching onto her neck, he alternated between sucking her neck and pulling her sweet tit. The urge to plunder her pussy with his rock hard cock was driving him crazy. He nibbled his way along her jaw to claim her mouth again. After giving her nipple another tight squeeze, he released her.
She tried to pull free but he swallowed her scream by swiping his tongue around hers. Then he picked her up. She wrapped her gorgeous legs around his hips. Heat greeted his dick and he knew he couldn’t wait another second to get inside her.
