Excerpt #5

Secretly, Velvet had tried to create a packed stadium full of adoring fans who stroked every one of her ego’s urges.  She had felt worse than when she started doing stand up and she was genuinely booed for her boring jokes and nervous delivery.  Genuine emotion was definitely her style.

“That’s my favorite,” Cassidy said.

Cassidy said that about all of Velvet’s new jokes.  She also meant it about each joke.

“Thanks.” Velvet bowed.  “So, what is the champagne for?”  Velvet read the label and raised an eyebrow, waiting for an answer.

Cassidy clapped her hands, giddy with excitement.  “You have been offered a tour!  With Rockford Entertainment.  You’ll be travelling with other headliners.  They showed me the PR campaign, and it is gorgeous.  You’ll be performing in front of full audiences every night.  The best part is, they called me, not the other way around.  They want you, kid.”

She lives life below the waves. What will a man sacrifice to discover it’s not a dream?

Mermaid Velvet has always had a special fascination with the World. And studying its two-legged humans has given the aspiring comedian unique skills to make her audiences laugh. But when she saves a human who believes he’s drowning, she’s stunned by the magic that flows between them.

Saunders is trapped between two realities with no memory of his past. Lost in a strange, underwater domain, he comes face-to-face with an alluring goddess of the sea. When he disappears from her realm, he’s desperate to reunite with the entrancing beauty.

As Velvet continues to bring Saunders out of the darkness, her love for him grows along with her fear that his next disappearance might be his last. And as his memories slowly return, Saunders must decide if he’s willing to leave the World permanently for a chance to be with the mermaid he desires.

Can Velvet and Saunders overcome his terrible fate and sink into each other’s perfect arms?

Deep in the Dreaming by Gina Briganti Release Week Exclusive Excerpt

Deep in the Dreaming Ad 1 (1)


“Elena, you know I have baggage. I think you have some, too. Please, accept my apology.”

“Where’s Brittany when you need her?” Elena rubbed her face with her hands. Hard.


“The truth speaker. She could tell me if what you’re telling me is real. I’ve lived almost fifty years without being propositioned the way you just did.”

She crossed her arms across her chest again and searched his eyes.

He didn’t dare look away. She deserved to know about his past. Even if it meant losing the hint of happiness he’d felt with her. “Brittany can interrogate me if that’s what you want. Honestly, I was trying to say that I will take care of you if you need help. I’m sorry for the way I said it, but not for what I meant.”

“I can accept your apology. It’s the future of our relationship I’m trying to understand.” She relaxed enough for the scowl to leave her face. “I need time to work through this, Draper.”

She meant time to work through it on her own. Time to decide if she was going to continue with their relationship. With him.

The panic he felt when he saw that she was getting ready to leave earlier was nothing compared to what he was feeling now. He knew what mattered most to her and he was desperate enough to use it.
