They stood so close she could feel the heat resonating from his body, and tingles danced across her skin as he kissed the delicate skin at the corner of her mouth. Her lips felt warm, ready. “It’s true,” she whispered, closing her eyes as he kissed the other corner of her mouth. “There are times when I feel completely overwhelmed by life. I need a place like this.” She tilted her neck as he pressed his lips down the gentle slope of her throat. His fingers lightly ran up and down her spine until she shivered. “Thank you for sharing your special place with me.”
Lifting her into his arms, Craig gazed into the ebony pools of her eyes. “There is so much more I want to share with you,” he said. “You feel so good in my arms. No, you feel...perfect.”
To his delight, she breathed, “Kiss me,” and twined her fingers through his hair.
He did, keeping his touch soft, tender, inviting.
He felt her tremble.
Cradling her against him, he settled her back into the soft bed of tall grass, pressing his mouth more insistently against hers. Her lips were made of the most pliable velvet, and he drank in the sweetness of them. Her hair was smoother than silk and it tickled his face. Her skin was pale like fresh cream and he caressed it. Her eyes, oh those eyes, like warm liquid pools of the nighttime sky, they could pull him into oblivion if he wasn’t careful. He didn’t want to becareful. He just wanted Marissa…
This novel had both: the reality of a post-war culture and the hopeful feeling of a romance novel. Reviewed by Rebecca Lynn: Pen & Muse Reviews
I was seriously impressed by Ms. Blue's ability to sweep me into the past with Marissa. All her angst, anxiety, and heart kept me rooting for her and Craig from page one. A beautiful story of love, hope, faith and knowing of the heart and certainly one that deserves a 'You Gotta Read". I won't spoil it for you, but I loved the twist at the end, especially the letter to her mom. You broke my heart, but made me smile. Well done! yougottareadreviews.blogspot.com - Reviewed By: Brynna Curry, Rating: YOU GOTTA READ
I look forward to future releases from this very talented author.
This story will make the reader smile, feel the characters’ every emotion, pull at your heartstrings, and keep you wanting to read more with its surprises and action throughout. ...
Melissa Blue does an exceptional job bringing the characters to life in this story. Her ability to take her readers from “Now”; a world of cell phones, automobiles, and penicillin, to 1863’s horse drawn carriages, arranged marriages, and alcohol as a cure-all; throwing in twists and turns, dead bodies, and scandals while never breaking the flow of the story, is sheer brilliance!
