KEEP ME AT CHRISTMAS

by Lucinda Whitney

Can the magic of the season keep them together beyond Christmas?

When Luciana Romano arrives in Hudson Springs, New York, her plan is to complete her restoration job at the museum so she can return home to her family in time for Christmas. But a blizzard grounds all flights, and she finds herself stranded. The DiLorenzo family offers her a place to stay, and she accepts their hospitality. But the unexpected attraction between her and the quiet, good-looking son makes it hard to want to leave.

Jack DiLorenzo is stuck. Managing the family’s Italian café is not what he’d planned to do with his life, but his sense of duty won’t let him quit. When his grandmother invites a Portuguese woman to stay with them, Jack feels something he hasn’t felt for a long time: hope. He knows he shouldn’t get close to Luciana since she’s leaving as soon as the airport opens, but he can’t help himself.

Yet as the magic of the season begins to work on them, he wonders how he can let go of the woman who’s awakened his heart.

IF THE SUIT FITS

by Sally Johnson

Finding love at the amusement park can be quite a ride.

Becky Perkins has lost her job, her lease, and her car. As a result, she moves back in with her parents and takes the only job she can find: a seasonal position at the local amusement park as a sign spinner.

Unfortunately, it includes wearing a foam hot-dog suit.

When she crashes into fellow park employee Hudson Lowell, on her first day, suddenly the job doesn’t seem so bad.

Actuary Hudson Lowell feels the weight of the world on his shoulders with this assignment. The Gainesville Amusement Park has been struggling for years. It’s his responsibility to advise the park owners as to the viability of the park. Going into the deal, the solution seems pretty simple—until he meets Becky.

The more time Becky and Hudson spend together, the more their feelings grow, making it harder and harder for Hudson to be objective about his decision. If the park closes, it will impact the whole town and directly hurt Becky. And how can he hurt the woman he has fallen for?

SECOND CHANCE IN PARADISE

by Jennifer Peel

A first love that deserves a second chance.

Doctoral student Holland Reeves may have aced every class she’s ever taken, but when it comes to life outside her lab, she finds she has more meaningful relationships with test tubes and pipettes than she does with people. That all changes when a surprise wedding invitation arrives, forcing her to return to the small coastal town of Paradise and the Clairborne Resort, where she left her first dream of being Mrs. Clairborne to begin the dream of becoming Dr. Reeves. There she must face her past and, to her surprise, the only man she ever loved, Porter Clairborne, the prodigal son who has unexpectedly returned.

Together, Holland and Porter must decide if their love deserves a second chance, and if Paradise will finally live up to its name or forever remain a town of broken dreams.

KINGS CROSSED LOVERS

by Donna K. Weaver

Will their online magic survive when they meet in real life?

Ethan Walters has no time for distractions like romance. Not if he’s going to have the brilliant medical career he’s always dreamed of.

Samantha Diederik has managed to avoid her high society mother’s manipulations since the woman moved to Europe. Now she’s back and pressuring Sam to move to New York with her. With that battle on the horizon, Sam proceeds with a vacation with her brother and his roommate. She’s crushed on Ethan for years. They’ve only met online, but their hours-long conversations are the highlight of her week. Now she has a chance to find out if the cyber magic she’s felt with him will translate to real life.

And wow, does it ever–with sparks flying! Now all she has to do is find a way to fight off her mother’s machinations while convincing Ethan she won’t destroy his dreams.

Michael Jones is the life of the party. As a Defenseman for the New York Rangers, he’s always had his pick of women and friends. When he mistakenly proposes to the Mayor’s daughter at a party one night, he hightails it out of New York before the media storm hits.

HER BIG FAT DREAMY BILLIONAIRE EX

by Victorine Lieske

When McKenna begs them to fake a marriage so they can go with her to a counseling resort designed to help fix her failing one, Anna and Michael agree. After all, the drunken kiss they shared two years ago was definitely in the past. But when they decide to make it their mission to bring McKenna and her husband together, they begin to realize just how good of a team they really are.

Felicity should have suspected something when she got hired to take pictures at a resort in Belize, all expenses paid. When she arrives and bumps into her ex-fiancé, Aiden, she realizes she’s been set up. His grandmother is playing matchmaker and every time she turns around Grams is forcing Aiden and her together. But she can’t fall for him again, it was a disaster last time, and she doesn’t want to repeat the past.
Aiden can’t believe Felicity is at his resort. She broke his heart five years ago, and he’s determined not to allow it to happen again. But one disaster after another keeps forcing them together and he’s sure Grams is behind all of it. He’s just not sure how long he can hold out without pulling Felicity into his arms and confessing that he never really got over her.

Her Big Fat Dreamy Billionaire Ex is a sweet romance, and it is a stand-alone novel.

THE TRUST OF A BILLIONAIRE

by Michelle Pennington

Can their love survive her secret?

Hannah Rhodes is determined to keep her beachfront property, even though she can’t afford to. But it’s her childhood home and she can’t bear to see it plowed down by the billionaire investor who keeps raising his offer to buy it. When the same man hires her to be his daughter’s nanny—providing her the income she needs to reject his offer—the irony is not lost on her. However, seeing him as a loving, worried father makes it difficult to enjoy her secret revenge.

For Carter Ellis, building his own resort was a massive risk, but worth it to build a new life for his daughter away from his controlling mother. Everything is going to plan except that the owner of the tumbled-down home blocking his resort view and threatening its success refuses to sell. If only his new nanny would stop distracting him, he just might be able to figure out how to solve this problem. Not only is she beautiful and vibrant, she’s helping his daughter bloom. Just when he begins to give in to his feelings, he discovers who she really is.

When their trust is shaken, will Carter and Hannah sacrifice what they wanted most for a chance at something more?

MATCHED BY DESIGN

by Lindzee Armstrong

Jasmine has finally landed her dream job with a world-famous couture wedding dress designer. All she wants is to make a name for herself in the fashion world, and working on a celebrity’s wedding is a great start. But when the groom gets caught leering at the staff, the bride demands any single designers be taken off the project. No problem—Jasmine quickly invents a fake fiancé. Too bad the bride insists he come to the wedding.

Dr. Isaac Sloan couldn’t save his best friend, so he’s left the army and cut all ties with his past. Now he’s spending his newly inherited fortune to improve the transplant surgery that killed his friend. Following through on the silly marriage pact he made with his childhood crush certainly isn’t in the plans.

When Jasmine runs into Isaac at a coffee shop, he reluctantly agrees to be her pretend fiancé—but only after learning the bride’s dad is the prestigious transplant doctor who’s help he desperately needs. As sparks fly between Jasmine and Isaac, the line between fact and fiction grows very thin. Can they keep the engagement secret, or will the lies unravel their careers?

DOG HEALTH CARE by RACHELE BAKER, DVM BOOK REVIEW @RacheleBakerDVM

 

 

The must-have book for dog owners written by an experienced veterinarian and dog lover.

You may be able to help your dog avoid developing medical problems like skin infections, ear infections, and more, by following the simple preventative care recommendations that Dr. Baker discusses in this book. Preventative care is much less expensive than paying for veterinarian exams, diagnostics, and treatments for your dog when your dog develops medical problems.

Dr. Baker answers some of the most asked questions from dog owners. Is it normal for dogs to have bad breath? What vaccines does your dog really need? Does it really matter what food you feed your dog? In this book, Dr. Rachele Baker shares the knowledge that she has acquired during more than sixteen years as a practicing veterinarian. Even people who have had dogs for years will be sure to learn something new in this book!

Dr. Baker received her B.S. from the University of California Davis in 1997 and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2001. Dr. Baker wrote this book to provide dog lovers with the information they need to keep their dogs healthy in a simple, brief, yet comprehensive, manner.

Praise for this book

“Loved it from start to finish. Informative, creative, and intelligent.” – Denise, Goodreads.

“Clear, comprehensive, and easy-to-read. Refreshingly well-written and covers everything one might need to know as a dog owner.” – Bella, Amazon.

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of Dog Health Care: 7 Simple Ways to Keep Your Dog Healthy by Rachele Baker, DVM for the purpose of an honest review. The opinions expressed here are entirely my own. Many thanks to Loving the Book for arranging for the advanced copy.

It was my pleasure to read Dog Health Care: 7 Simple Ways to Keep Your Dog Healthy by Rachele Baker, DVM!

I found the information to be very easy to understand and well organized. It is the very essentials that must be learned by any dog owner, hopefully BEFORE they find their furever puppy!

With all the information on the market (i.e, television) about dog food, I found the chapter on nutrition to be the most beneficial information! I am, however, a very strong opponent to feeding dogs people food of any type, not just those that are known to be harmful.

Another very important chapter is the one on vaccinations. There is a lot of debate these days on the need for booster shots of vaccines given to dogs as puppies. I am so glad that Dr. Baker made clear that the booster shots are absolutely necessary to keep your dog(s) protected!

I strongly encourage all dog owners to pick up a copy of Dog Health Care: 7 Simple Ways to Keep Your Dog Healthy by Rachele Baker, DVM. Whether your furever friend is young or old, Dr. Baker has excellent advice to assist you in the care of your dog!

I give Dog Health Care: 7 Simple Ways to Keep Your Dog Healthy by Rachele Baker, DVM five juicy dog bones, umm, I mean Room With Books cups of coffee!

Excerpt

Chapter 1: The Best Nutrition For Dogs and Puppies

The six basic nutrient categories

A good quality diet for your dog will contain all the essential nutrients in the proper proportions. The six basic nutrient categories are water, carbohydrates, protein (essential amino acids), fat (essential fatty acids), minerals, and vitamins.

Water

You may be surprised to learn that water is considered the most important nutrient. Water is vital to life. Water is one of the largest constituents of an animal’s body and can vary from forty percent to more than eighty percent of the total.

Water provides shape to the body. It acts as a solvent in which substances are dissolved and then transported through the body. Water is necessary for the digestion of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Water in bodily fluids helps lubricate the joints and eyes and keeps the airways moist.

Water helps regulate body temperature as it is evaporated from the skin or from the respiratory tract during breathing. That is why you will see your dog pant when he or she gets hot. Panting helps to cool your dog down. Panting is the primary way that dogs get rid of excess body heat. When your dog pants, water and heat are evaporated from your dog’s lungs, tongue, and mouth.

It is very important, therefore, to make sure that your dog always has fresh, clean water. You should clean your dog’s water bowl with dish soap every day to remove bacteria and debris before refilling it with clean water. I do not recommend leaving your dog’s water bowl outside in a place where other animals in the area can drink from it due to the potential for contamination with bacteria and diseases from other animals.

 

Dr. Rachele Baker is a veterinarian, an author, an award-winning blogger at Rachele Baker, Veterinarian and Author, and, of course, a pet lover. She lives in the beautiful state of California. Rachele likes to try new restaurants, go to local festivals, hike the many beautiful trails around her home, and explore California wine regions.

Rachele has been working as a veterinarian in California caring for dogs and cats for seventeen years. She received her B.S. from the University of California Davis in 1997 and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2001.

Rachele has written and published a number of interesting and helpful articles about pet health and resources for pet lovers on her website. Check it out!

LOVE AT LAST by CLAUDIA CONNER

Love at Last

A Standalone Romance

By: Claudia Connor

Released April 24th, 2018


Easy to love, easy to leave.

With her ex-fiance’s words, I’m in love with someone else, still ringing in her ears, Clare Franklin flies off on her would-be honeymoon alone. Resigned to the fact that not everyone gets a happily ever after, she’s sworn off men. Until she gets tangled up, quite literally, with one very sexy veterinarian.

The only thing Dr. Deacon Montgomery is looking to share is his surgical expertise, but his instant attraction to Clare makes him wonder if he could be more than just a doctor, and daddy to his twin two-year old daughters.

Sun-filled days and hot, steamy nights only deepens the connection, causing them each to hope for something more. Until one phone call from home changes everything. But a love like theirs is hard to find, and definitely too hard to forget.

His wide, warm palm grazed her lower back as they wove their way through the tables to the exit. They crossed over the water garden in silence, slowing as they reached a fork in the path.

“Which way?” Deacon asked. “I’ll walk you back.”

“That’s sweet, but you really don’t have to. It’s a five-star resort, not downtown Los Angeles.”

Deacon kept walking. “True. But you know, I took you to dinner and all.”

She arched a brow at him. “It’s also an all-inclusive resort. Maybe I took you.”

“Maybe you did.”

He flashed her that slightly lopsided grin that hit her right in the chest. She conceded to the walk, and together, they followed the brick path. The resort was dark, but lights along the sidewalk lit the path and shined up the skinny gray trunks of the swaying palms. It was quiet, and when they didn’t pass even one other person, she was glad he was walking her back.
She slowed as they came to the breezeway leading to her building and pointed up the steps to the second floor. “I’m up there, so…”

Deacon started up the steps. “I’ll walk you to the door. I’m funny like that.”

She probably should have said no, insisted that she could make it to her door on her own. Because of course she could. But she didn’t insist, just followed enormously glad she’d removed the HONEYMOON banner from her door.

They reached her room, and she turned to face him. Just the two of them now, up here, alone at her door. She felt a slight buzzing in her head that had nothing to do with alcohol.

“Well, Clare of the here and now.”

She rolled her eyes at the reminder of her earlier word-vomit ramble. “It was nice to meet you.” She stuck out her hand, hoping it wasn’t sweaty.

“It was nice to meet you, too.”

It didn’t feel like a simple handshake as he wrapped his fingers around hers. “I had fun tonight. You turned what might have been a horrible night into something surprisingly nice.”

“I’m glad.”

“Thank you for catching me and saving my top and for dinner and talking and…” And maybe she could stop talking.

“You’re welcome.”

A frog gave a low croak, and another answered, but she figured the pounding of her heart was louder.

The buzzing in her head grew louder, and she felt dizzy from looking into his eyes and staring at his lips because she wanted him to kiss her. She wanted to feel those smooth, firm lips on hers, to taste him and feel his arms around her. I’m losing my mind.

“You’re beautiful,” he said. “I’ve been wanting to say that all night.” He lifted his hand and lightly brushed his thumb over her cheek.

Then he leaned in, and she moved. Just…moved. In and up, her fingers twisting in the front of his shirt. She was just falling into the taste of him, just getting that warm, tingling flood of a first kiss when her brain fully registered that he’d been leaning in to kiss her cheek.

“I’m sorry.” She swallowed hard, felt a stinging heat flooding into her cheeks, and wished desperately to disappear. Deacon was staring at her in complete confusion. That made two of them. “I’m… really sorry.”

She spun to her door. A stiff wind sang through the open-air hallway, slapping her hair across her eyes. How she got her key in the lock, she had no idea. Mumbling one more apology over her shoulder, she opened the door and closed it behind her. She stood, heart pounding in mortification, her lips buzzing.

The champagne glasses and fruit and cheese tray had been cleared. The bed had been turned back, and the damn swans were back, nestled in the center of the bed and kissing right on their terrycloth lips.

UNFORGETTABLE LOVE FEATURING BROOKE ST. JAMES @Brooke_StJames

 

JFK to Dublin

by Brooke St. James

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Sarah Spicer took this saying to heart, at least where love was concerned. She had given up any hope in ever finding a decent man. She was convinced they had only one thing on their minds and were untrustworthy and unfit for relationships. This was exactly why she had a strict no-dating policy.

That was before she met Collin Ross. He was handsome, successful, and possessed a refined confidence that any woman would have adored. Well, any woman except for Sarah. Her indifference toward his charms made gaining her affection difficult. But patience is a virtue, and Collin was determined to prove that if there was a man worthy of winning her heart, he was the one.

Available on Kindle Unlimited

 

“What are you thinking when you look at Sarah here?” Macy asked, obviously talking to the guy.

I glanced at her with a terrified expression, even though I had no idea where she was headed with the question. She had asked it loudly enough that we all turned to look at her, and she stared straight at the ruggedly handsome bus boy who was now holding our used dishes. He smiled curiously at her, and she reached out to pat my back, causing him to glance at me.

“This is Sarah,” she said, horrifying me. “Would you mind telling us what you were thinking just now when you were staring at her?”

“Macy!” I whispered.

She smiled at me and gestured toward the guy. “I just wanted to know what he had on his mind when you two were looking at each other.” She turned to face him. “I was trying to see if she was right about guys, that’s all.”

“Oh, my goodness, you need to leave that poor man alone, Macy.” I shook my head as I lowered my gaze, putting my fingertips and thumb on my eyebrows and waiting for him to walk away.

He did not do as I hoped. Instead, he stood there. “I don’t mind telling you what I was thinking, but if something’s awkward…” He trailed off, and I knew he was looking at me. I could feel it.

“Nothing’s awkward,” Macy assured him. She nudged me with her elbow, and I glanced up to smile at the guy, feeling red-faced and horrified.

He wore a curious half-smile as he stared at me, letting his light eyes roam all over my face. I blinked and stared down shyly. “I was thinking she looked like sunshine, actually.”

 

I’ve read a lot of Brooke St. James’s books and am delighted to say that this series is my favorite. Unlike some of her other series, the continuity here is provided by a common interest more than blood family ties, but we see this group turn into family.
I love the art, the philanthropy, the fun banter and humor, and of course the clean romance.
In this one, I love Sarah’s standards, her realization about forgiveness, and her trust. Collin’s respect for her is also wonderful, even standing up to her parents.
Highly recommend.

Ms St James has some very good insight on forgiveness. An easy book to read with a fairytale ending,

What a terrific story! I was hooked from the moment I began the first few sentences….working in New York, I completely related with Sarah and the amount of people crossing the street at the same time 🙂

The story was just so lovely….I also married my husband after knowing him for a few days…and still going strong 26 years later 🙂

THE FAKE FIANCE GROOM by TAYLOR HART 1 DAY SALE @taylorfaithhart

The Fake Fiancé Groom

(Texas Titan Romances)

by Taylor Hart

Walker Kent, professional football player, hates the press. After a year of dealing with a dishonorable discharge, he’s in no mood to play nice at a bachelor auction. When a beautiful actress buys him, then announces he’s her fiancé … his barely endurable night has just turned to purgatory.

After discovering her ex is engaged to her best friend (ex best friend, thank you very much) Scarlett Powers is desperate to find a fake fiancé to take to her brother’s wedding to show the happy couple she’s NOT a pity case. Good thing she spots the perfect bad-boy football player to take with her—Walker Kent. Too bad he turns her down!

After re-negotiating terms of the fake fiancé deal, Scarlett soon finds herself in the middle of a controlling father, a cougar mother-in-law, and a crazy bridezilla who wants to personalize the wedding with DIY craft projects for the guests. When Walker sweeps her off her feet by taking her on an ‘off books’ date, she finds herself on a Ferris wheel, sharing things with him she’s never told another living soul.

When a secret comes to light and she is forced to tell the truth, she has to make a choice—walk away or risk losing the only thing that’s ever been real.

A GARDEN IN CORNWALL by LAURA BIGGS @rararesources @PaperDollWrites

A Garden in Cornwall

(A Wedding in Cornwall Book 12)

By Laura Biggs

 

 

With their lives exactly what they’ve always dreamed, Matt and Julianne await the arrival of the third member of their family — but their happiness is threatened when their landlady Mathilda announces her intention to sell their beloved Rosemoor Cottage for an impossible value. Devastated, Julianne struggles to accept the cold reality of her and Matt making their home elsewhere.

Matt’s life has taken a new turn as he finally puts aside his academic work to pursue his gardening hobby as a career:  his first new job as a landscape designer involves neglected Penwill Hall’s ‘lost’ garden — one with a truly romantic Cornish past. But the task of restoring its legendary beauty from nearly seventy years ago proves difficult among the ruins lost in weeds and wilderness.

With notions of secret gardens and wartime stories echoing in her thoughts, Julianne is determined to help Matt and the estate’s new owner after the discovery of a hidden mural in the hall itself, depicting a breath-taking garden that may well be the lost one. Her efforts to uncover the past lead her to a curmudgeonly local gardener who just may hold the knowledge that would restore the ‘lost garden’ to its former glory. Will Julianne’s quest help her find a way to deal with losing the home she loves?

Hellos and farewells abound as Dinah returns to lend a helping hand at Cliffs House and Julianne relives her favourite memories of her and Matt’s beloved cottage in Book Twelve — the final instalment in the bestselling series A WEDDING IN CORNWALL.

“What do you think of Allen?” He had opened a different book, this one lying on the sofa’s adjacent table, with as many marks and creased corners as one of his research books. “Alexander. Anna. Audra.”

“Maybe,” I said. “How about something from the P’s?” If Matt and I were the middle of the alphabet, maybe we should lean towards the far spectrum of A-Z for the third member of our family.

“And have their initials be ‘P.R.’?” said Matt. “No, thank you. Let’s try a different letter, shall we?”

“‘V’?” I suggested. “Valerie? Vivienne? Violet? But if it’s a boy — that would be, what? Vincent? Victor?”

“How about something from the W’s? Warrington, Wilson, Wendy ….” He flipped through the pages, choosing at random. None of these sounded quite right to either of us.

“Maybe we should pick the name of someone we love,” I suggested. “A family member or a good friend.”

“None of my friends would be particularly flattered, I’m afraid,” said Matthew. “Academic minds with their noses buried in books these days, except for those who have children of their own.”

“But they would be if you named a newly-discovered indigenous moss for them, wouldn’t they?” I said.

He laughed. “All too true. Personally, though, I would prefer to have something else named for me. Although having the last name ‘Rose’ makes it rather difficult for anyone to call one of those after me.”

“Do you want a Matthew the second?” I asked. He shook his head.

“Not really. You?”

“No. I think one Julianne is enough in the family,” I said. “What about a mutual friend we both share?”

“Amanda? Gemma? Charlotte?” suggested Matt. “Kitty? Her given name is Katherine, isn’t it? I’ve always rather like that name.”

“Geoff? William?” I recited. “You had some close friends in your university years — what were their names?” I frowned.  “Or maybe childhood friends are better.”

“My first friend’s name was Archie,” said Matt, reflectively. “When I was four. I remember playing with him by the shore … throwing bits of shell at the shore birds who stole our picnic’s biscuits.”

“Mine was Lindsay,” I said. “Only spelled with a ‘z,’ I think.” I made a mental note not to use any weird spellings that would cause a headache for our child forevermore.

“You could name her for Aimee,” suggested Matt. “She would be thrilled by it, undoubtedly.”

My friend Aimee would die if I named my daughter for her — of course, she was back at home in Seattle now after a brief stay in Cornwall as part of a shop sitting arrangement with one of her fellow business owners. She would probably be too busy at work to join us for the special occasion. A cross-continental godmother of sorts, I imagined. Could you stand in via webcam as a godparent? I wasn’t sure.

“What about family? We could name it for one of my parents or yours.” I knew either of mine would be flattered by the gesture.

“My mother was never very fond of her name ‘Janet,’ although I never understood why,” said Matt. “I’m sure she would be honored by the thought, although I doubt she would want to pass down her actual name. So perhaps we shouldn’t rush to choose hers.”

“It could be a nice way to preserve your father’s memory, if we named it for him,” I said. Matt had lost his father too young in life to have known him well, and I knew he regretted this fact.

“It might be,” said Matt, quietly, and I could see he was seriously considering this one. “His name was a rather good one.”

David Lucas Rose. I had seen it written in an old book of Matt’s on one of our shelves. I had noticed his son’s handwriting resembled his ever so slightly in the way it slanted its ‘l’s’ and ‘r’s.’

“Let’s definitely put it on the list,” I said, reaching for the pad and pencil we had been using to jot down possible baby names.

A GENTLE HEART by CHRISTIE LOGAN BLAST @ChristieRomance

 

A Gentle Heart

by Christie Logan

Ambitious realtor Alex has plans for his life—big plans—and getting dumped by his fiancée won’t sidetrack him. He’ll have to face her again at an important business function, but he won’t let himself be the object of pity and scorn. What better way to show the world—and his ex— how well he’s doing than to arrive with a beautiful woman on his arm? A woman he finds, of all places, behind the lingerie counter of a department store.

Tyffanie has dreams that extend far beyond her sales counter, but she’s been burned by men only interested in her looks. Deep inside, she’s still the gawky, freckle-faced girl other kids used to tease. When handsome, successful Alex enters her life, everything changes. He’s the first to look beneath the surface, respect her, and care about her hopes and dreams.

Alex discovers there is so much more to Tyffanie than outward beauty. He’s falling in love with her kind soul and gentle heart when he must decide how far he’s willing to pursue success and all its trappings. Because his need to win at all costs may cost him Tyffanie’s love.

 

 

 

Excerpt from A Gentle Heart

Somehow, in spite of all their silliness, they found themselves at her building. So engrossed in her company, he hadn’t realized where she’d been leading him. He accompanied her up the walkway to the stoop. The lantern beside her front door glowed yellow, illuminating her bright hair. Her cheeks were pink with cold. Were her lips cold too? He imagined warming them with his own.

She took both his hands in hers. “Thank you for tonight, Alex. I had so much fun.”

“I should be thanking you,” he said, his gloved hands holding fast to hers. “You planned the evening.” He didn’t want to let her go. Didn’t want to say good night. It wasn’t that late, was it?

“I’m glad.” She paused, gazing up at him, and for a moment he forgot to breathe. His mind went blank as he lost himself in her beautiful brown eyes.

Then it hit him. She was waiting for him to kiss her.

His heart thudded and for an instant he was back in time, once again an awkward sweaty fifteen year old who’d never kissed a girl.

Quick, dummy! A voice inside him hissed. Make your move before she changes her mind.
