Okay, I promised you the cover for A Summer to Remember from my new series, Seasons of Love & Lust since I don't plan to do a cover reveal. Here it is!
What follows is a teaser from one of the many chapters I have written. It is almost a third of the way finished and with luck, I plan to release it before the end of April or the early part of May. Enjoy!
Paul’s crystal blue eyes stared into mine deeply and he shouldn’t have done that. My heart beat so fast, I could feel moisture gather in my most intimate areas and my sex was literally on fire. Everything about him turned me on but it wasn’t something I wanted because I was lonely. I wanted him and it didn’t seem right or fair that we both couldn’t have what we wanted.
However, I didn’t know if he really wanted me. Was he just saying this stuff to make me feel better and smooth over tensions? He’d been a family friend for as long as I could remember and maybe he just thought of me as a “little sister” he had to protect as much as Jude.
“Um, who ever said anything about marriage?” he inquired politely. “Ashley is a great woman but I don’t know if I am cut out to be the marrying type. I like my freedom way too much and although she is perfect, I don’t think she is for me.”
“Then why are you still with her?” I yelled back.
“Because you’re unavailable,” he responded. “I’m not talking about what Jude and I have discussed about you and how he doesn't want me being with you because I am like a brother to him. I mean, emotionally, you’re not ready to handle anything and if I knew what Kevin truly did to you, I would murder him myself. It’s been two years and you have been a completely different person. You sleep with men you don’t give a shit about and you act like love and life don't mean anything to you. Are you going to stand there and tell me this all goes back to what happened to you at Vassar?”
“It may not be pretty or politically correct but it’s the truth.” I took a step back from him and he naturally let go of my arm.
“Then open up to me and tell me what happened.”
To be continued...
