Excerpt:

Beau put the butter knife in his lover’s hand and clasped her delicate fingers around it. It was impossible to fight the impulse to lift her hand to his lips and kiss it. Then he let her hand go, and exposed his massive chest as a target. “Go for the heart, Belle. Prove you’re a ruthless killer and I’ll believe this nonsense about you slicing me open.”

She glanced down at the steak knife that lay beside his plate, and then back at the dull utensil he gave her. “If you were so sure I couldn’t do it, why did you give me this knife?” “Honestly?” His eyes lit up and she knew he was playing with her.

“You are so taken by this whole paranormal shit, I am worried handing you a real knife might cause you to accidentally hurt someone. While I think all this crap about predicting the future is stupid, I am a firm believer in self-fulfilling prophesies. In your haste to drop the knife, you’d probably accidentally cut yourself or me.”

“So, you admit you are cautious about being around me when I have a knife?”

“Peg me in the chest one time with your knife, honey. Prove you are a born killer.” Belle carefully put the knife down, making sure there was no possible way to accidentally cut herself or anyone else.

“Before you gloat, remember Madame Lenore said we would be safe in this parish. Now stop trying to get me to attack you. The family at the next table is watching our every move as it we’re some reality T.V. show.”

“Sorry, folks.” Beau turned to smile at their audience. “It doesn’t look like she’s in the mood to kill me today. When I haul her cute little ass home, she will be spitting mad then. Too bad you don’t live in New Orleans, where you could get a front row seat to the drama. You weren’t thinking about relocating to that region, were you? I handle a lot of properties in the area. Here’s my card. I could get you in a beautiful little cottage house in a great neighborhood. Crime free… well, mostly crime free. This beautiful woman I’m with is destined to be a vicious killer one day, but I am hoping to reform her.”
