Color Swatch-Synopsis-LoveMe_Fotor

Juliet Collins has always been a bit of a loner, but the last few years have been particularly shrouded in isolation and silence. Apart from her daily work at the local diner, her life is spent inside the walls of her tiny apartment, just trying to survive…until the one day that U.S. Army Private Tim Collins walks into the diner and takes a seat at one of her tables. By the time the day is over her life has been changed forever.

Private Collins is just a few hours away from being deployed for the first time, to a particularly violent conflict. To say he’s nervous would be an understatement. In his last day stateside all he wants is a little bit of normal. What he finds is the kind heart and sweet spirit of Juliet Collins. She is by his side until the last possible moment, the moment when he asks her to write him while he’s away, promising to do the same in return.

Though Juliet is afraid to believe his promises, he holds true to them. Letter after letter after letter passes between the two of them…until one day the letters from Tim stop completely, leaving Juliet broken and grieving for the love she had found but would never truly have.

Juliet called out to Tim just as he reached the first step of the porch. “Tim!” she said, pushing the door open a little further and stepping onto the landing.

Tim stopped, turning back towards her, looking at her curiously. “Yes, angel?”

“Just remember, I’ll be here, waiting for your letters and waiting for you when you return,” she said, drawing a small, but playful smile from him, brightening his blue eyes.

He turned back fully towards her, crossing the porch in one step, wrapping his powerful arms around her once more, holding her close. His lips pressed to hers in one last kiss, full of hope and promise, full of need and passion, full of all that was to come. Finally when their lips parted, he murmured softly against her lips. “I won’t forget, angel. Just remember to wait for me.”

And with that he was gone, down the steps, through the gate, disappearing further down the street. Juliet watched for as long as she could see him, but he never turned back to see her. By the time she stepped back inside her door her eyes were full of tears, but her heart was full of something she wasn’t sure she’d ever had before…hope.

Excerpt Trust Me?

I turn to face him; he puts his other arm around me. We are in the same position as before when the last kiss attempt failed. My arms are tight around his neck, his arms around my waist. I look down. He lifts up my chin so I’m lost in his gaze. His hand goes back to my waist. He swallows; I think he’s as nervous as I am. He tilts his head and leans in … I back away quickly.

“What’s wrong?” he asks, looking hurt.

“Oh, no, it’s not you. I think … I might have garlic breath.”

He laughs and pulls me back to him. “So do I.” He pulls me in tighter, and before I know what’s happening, his lips are on mine. I give in and surrender to him completely.

This feels like one of my fantasies, only way, way better. He holds me tight as one hand moves from my waist to caress my cheek, kissing me softly but sensually. My hands move to the back of his head, and I grab a lock of hair in each hand. He moves our bodies so that I’m against the railing at the edge of the deck. He moves his hand from my waist to hold the rail as I still grasp his hair. The kissing becomes feverishly passionate; his tongue against mine as they intertwine with each other. Our breathing becomes faster and erratic. Our kissing becomes more intimate. We are in perfect sync with each other. I pull him closer to me, our whole bodies touching. My heart is pounding fast and hard. His hand moves from my face to the back of my head, pulling me tight. He moves my hair from the side of my neck, breaks our kiss and kisses my neck slowly and seductively. I sigh and breathe in a stuttering motion. I open my eyes to see the waitress standing there, gawking at us. I stiffen as I see her. He pulls back and looks at me. With my eyes, I gesture toward the waitress. He turns, looks, and lets out a little huff. He leans in towards me.

“Now that’s a first kiss,” he whispers as he grabs my hand and leads me over to the table. I can’t help but smile.

Excerpt Love Me?

My nerves start to get the better of me, I start to feel nauseous; those darn pesky butterflies attack again. I’m not sure why I’m nervous, whether it’s the shoes making me unstable or whether it’s the memory of our first date, our first touch, or our first kiss that’s making me bashful.

 I turn the corner to see him standing there with a bunch of red roses, in the suit that he changed into earlier, this time with a baby pink tie on. Behind him is that gorgeous waterfall cascading down the cliff with the lush greenery surrounding us. As I take a step closer, I hear music playing. “Thank You for Loving Me” by Bon Jovi. It’s our song. I feel my eyes welling up as all the emotion and love I feel for this man is becoming too much to bear.

His smile is beaming from ear to ear when I approach. Finally I reach him. He holds out his hand for me to take. I take it, and he pulls me into a tight embrace.

“This is perfect,” I whisper.

“Perfection for perfection, my love.” He kisses my cheek, and places the bouquet of flowers on the railing.
