#Excerpt: HURRICANE BUTTERFLY by MeChelle Vermeulen

Tall and slightly tanned, with short messy dark hair, sideburns, and dark stubble along his strong jaw, he looks down at me as he slides of his aviators. My heart slams against my chest as his silver stormy eyes underneath straight black brows lock with mine.
“I’m sorry to intrude, my name is Joshua Roxwell, the guy at the gas station said you might know where to find Ben Slone.” His velvet husky voice carries a whiff of whiskey and spearmint.
“Uhm, oh, you mean Luke,” I gulp.
He seems slightly confused, and I realize that it’s because I’m thinking out loud again.
“I mean, Luke’s the guy at the gas station, he works today.”
Stop rambling. “I’m Sophie, uhm, Blake.”
“Hi, Sophie Blake.” He gives me a panty-dropping smile, and I can feel my brain turn to mush.
