Excerpt From Hidden Desire by Ja’Nese Dixon

“Do you trust me Sandra?” Bruce Daniels made a wise decision of making his request by video because, for this discussion, he needed to see Sandra’s face.

Her eyes filled with unease at the question, and with her ebony twists pulled back in a ponytail he had an unobstructed view of the guarded expression on her makeup-free face. Still, he would not take no for an answer.

Sandra lowered to the cardinal couch and moved a pillow to support her lower back.“What do you mean? You know I trust you, but that’s a loaded question. And stop with that silly smile. What are you up to?”

Bruce was about to orchestrate the biggest undertaking of his life. He hoped it ended with Sandra James as his fiancé.

“I need your help.”

“Whatcha got kiddo?”

He hoped she didn’t see him cringe. That was part of their issue. Sandra saw him as just a friend. Bruce wanted to be more than friends, and everyone knew it but her.

Patience, he chided his runaway heart.

He had a plan and when it was all said and done she would no longer see him as her best friend, her ride-or-die, or her pal. She would see him as a man, her future husband and, Lord willing, the father of their children. He wanted to give her a lifetime of happiness, and much more, however, their happily-ever-after would be impossible with him in the friend zone.

About Robyn Rychards 

Robyn Rychards grew up in the granola bowl of the United States, Boulder Colorado, a town filled with fruits, flakes and nuts. She considers herself a Jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none and has taught herself to sew, paint, play the piano, garden, cook, the list goes on. But now that her books are published, she’s thrilled to finally be considered a master of one. At least as much as a person can be, for the learning never really stops.

She feels her active imagination is a blessing and a curse, with the blessing far outweighing the curse since it has led her to fulfill her dream of writing for Harlequin. Robyn started writing stories when she was a teenager because she didn’t have enough books to read. Sometimes she finds it hard to believe that people are willing to pay her to do something she enjoys so much, but mostly she’s happy to have such a wonderful excuse not to cook and clean. And a job that means you can stay in your jammies as long as you want? Priceless.

She also loves to hear from her readers, so send her an email at You can get in touch with her on Twitter, @robynrychards. She loves meeting new people on Facebook too and can be found under her name, Robyn Rychards. Check out her web page at for details about her books and upcoming releases.
