Top 5 Reasons to Love Cliff from Cliff's Descent
Hello! Thank you for joining us. I’m very happy to be here at Reading Between the Wines Book Club, celebrating the release of CLIFF’S DESCENT, the latest book in my Immortal Guardians series. I you like strong heroes who adore strong women, action scenes that keep you on the edge of your seat, and romance that is alternately steamy and sweet and tugs at your heartstrings, then I think you’ll like Cliff and Emma’s story.
Today I thought I would help you get to know Cliff, the hero, by giving you five reasons I think you’re going to love him.
He isn’t afraid to love.
Cliff’s heart hammered in his chest.
She was going to run away with me. Emma was going to leave everything behind to run away and be with me.
The knowledge staggered him. Humbled him. Moved him deeply. As did her touch.
Drawing back a fraction of an inch, he stared down at her, mesmerized by her beauty, her bravery, and the love that shone in her eyes beneath the reflection of the amber glow in his own.
Emma loved him. She hadn’t said it. But he knew it as surely as he knew he loved her.
Groaning, he claimed her lips again.
He’s Honest. Honorable
When Cliff had first come to the network, he would never have imagined Reordon would become such a strong ally. But he’d turned out to be a real stand-up guy. He had even provided Cliff with video footage of his worst psychotic breaks so he could show Emma.
Cliff never wanted her to underestimate the danger he posed. And too, he’d wanted to ensure she wasn’t laboring under any illusions that his condition wasn’t worsening.
Yet she still she loved him. She still fought for him, bolstering his strength whenever his determination to continue fighting wavered.
He loves strong women
Emma settled herself sideways on his lap and pulled his arms around her. “You’re strong, Cliff.” She held out an arm, flexed her biceps in an exaggerated show of muscle, and arched a brow. “I’m strong, too.”
His expression lightened. “Yes, you are.”
“Together, we can do anything. We can fight this. We can beat this. Even though you may think it’s futile, we have to give Melanie and the other doctors more time.” She pressed a tender kiss to his lips. “I know it’s hard, honey, and that things may get worse. But I’ll be here to help you through it. All of it.” She kissed him again. “I’m not going anywhere.”
Those eyes of his brightened further as he dipped his head and claimed her lips in a longer, deeper kiss.
His gaze held hers, making Emma feel as if she was the most beautiful and most loved woman in the world. Tonight he even sang, his deep voice joining Nat King Cole’s in professing her unforgettable as they danced beneath the moonlight.
It was magical.
He was magical.
“I’m so in love with you,” she murmured.
Smiling, he swiveled slightly and lowered her in a gentle dip. “You’re the love of my life, Emma.”
She had never been happier than in that moment.
He has a very appealing sense of humor despite the darkness he faces.
Emma’s eyes widened. And when she opened the front door and stepped out onto her porch, the look of baffled astonishment on her face made him grin. “Hi, beautiful,” he called, buck naked in the moonlight.
Mouth hanging open, she shook her head. “What… is happening? Are the voices telling you to streak now?” she asked incredulously.
Cliff burst out laughing.
Thanks again for joining us! I hope you’ll enjoy Cliff and Emma’s story.
