[Blog Tour] Excerpt from Straight to Heaven by Michelle Scott

Yesterday I had the honour to welcome Michelle Scott for a guest post. Today, I have an excerpt from Straight to Heaven. :D Enjoy!

William had been leaning against the wall, and he stood up straight when he saw me.  “That didn’t go well, did it?”
He’d witnessed my epic failure.  Terrific.  “Things were going fine until that woman got in the way,” I said.  Curse that interfering old lady!  Now Miss Spry would be furious with me.  I resumed nibbling my cuticle.
“An old lady?  Is that what you saw?”  William laughed.  “That, my dear Lilith, was a guardian angel.”
Guardian angel?  I replayed the events in my mind, suddenly realizing how easily the old lady with the walker had thwarted my attempts to tempt my client.  Her timing had been perfect, and those piercing, blue eyes had been supernatural.  “No one told me there would be an angel involved,” I said.
“Angels can be a nuisance, especially if they’re assigned to your client.  They may work for Heaven, but they know as many dirty tricks as we do.”
“So they’ve given you trouble before, too?” I asked hopefully.
“Don’t be ridiculous,” he said.  “I’ve never once let an angel stop me from tempting a client.”
I should have guessed.  William had a perfect track record which made him a favorite of Miss Spry’s.  “How did you manage that?” I asked him.
He gave me a knowing smile.  “It’s the easiest thing in the world.  I seduced them."
