Lonely Widow's First Kiss

Valentine's Day ~ the day for lovers. But how would you feel about that first kiss after being widowed for more than a year?

I can tell you from experience, the event is both thrilling and terrifying!

Heroine, Rebecca Sinclair's response to the first kiss from her hero, Ray Jacoby may surprise you......

She lowered her gaze, and he lifted her chin with his finger and waited until she looked at him again. “I want to kiss you, Becca, here in the midst of Paradise,” he whispered, his lips covering hers with devastating tenderness.

Rebecca heard his primitive grunt of satisfaction when he let go of her hands and wrapped his arms around her, pulling her closer. An answering purr escaped her as tiny pinpoints of pleasure bathed her senses with light and color. Never in her life had she felt so alive, so consumed with sensations.

Whether a moment or an eternity, she had no idea how long they stood there, his mouth in sweet possession of hers. All she knew was that when the kiss was over she was plastered against his hard body, her breathing was sharp almost painful and her fists were clenched in his thick, sandy-colored hair. Appalled at her wanton response and the needy way in which she clung, Rebecca flung away with a startled cry of distress, and began to run.

I love a heroine who can't believe she's so attracted and stung by a guy she runs after the first kiss. Great excerpt. My TBR list keeps going up and up.

Oh Wendi, I agree completely - isn't that kind of attraction wonderful?! I'll tell you my first kiss after being widowed more than a year was giddy/thrilling/terrifying!

Well Tracey, yes he follows her but you'll have to read the book to find out what happens next LOL!

Thank you both for commenting!

I imagine it has to be difficult to find yourself attracted to someone new after losing someone you love. It's kind of sad, but a second chance at love is a wonderful opportunity. Some people never find it at all. I can tell this will be a moving story.

Oh Mysticmother, you don't know how right you are! I lost my soul mate 8/18/09 but God has blessed me with the friendship of a wonderful man and very possibly a second chance at true love. HE is such a wonderful Father & Lord!

Thanks for commenting!
