It’s #TeaserTuesday! And you know what that means…I have a peek inside the upcoming release, #GroundsForLove. April 1st is quickly approaching and I can’t wait for you to read Jen and Rod’s steamy island romance.
Here’s an unedited excerpt from Chapter 3 and is in Rod’s POV. SETUP: This is the first time they meet face to face and they are walking on the beach at dusk.
A wave washes ashore and covers our bare feet. She grins and says, “You know, I’ve seen you on the ferry several time.”
“I know. I’ve seen you as well.” That was hard to admit.
“It’s just that… I had this crazy idea that when you looked at me, we had a moment. Was it all my imagination?”
I could have denied knowing what she was talking about but I didn’t. “It’s not crazy. I felt it.”
We walked along quietly for long easy minutes before she said, “Good.”
Without words we turned and headed back towards Blakes house. This woman mystifies me. “Do you think I’m old?” I wish those words hadn’t erupted from my mouth.
“As opposed to what? Dirt?” she replies with a chuckle.
I have no idea how to reply to that. I decide to be straight forward. “Do you think I’m too old for you. Hypothetically.” I’m smart enough to tack that last word on as a disclaimer or sorts.
“Is this a roundabout way to get me to admit that I find you attractive? Does your ego need stroking?”
I really wish she hadn’t used that word. Now I’m thinking about something I’d like her to stroke. “No. I just want to know if I have a chance. With you.” I can’t be any clearer than that. I’m so outside my comfort zone I’m in a totally new area code.
“So you want to know if I would ever go out with someone of your dottering age? Which is…”
I wince and say, “Forty-six.”
