Six Sentence Sunday, a taste of "Now and Forever 1, a Love Story"

Here is a snippet of my newly released sensuous, not formulaic, contemporary romance, "Now and Forever 1, a Love Story":


His fingers tangled in her long hair as his other arm pulled her closer to him.
"Remember, you promised to come back," she said.
"I‘ll love you forever, Callie. I‘ll be back to make you my wife and then we can do this every night," he said, kissing her.
 

After this last dangerous tour of duty, they would get married, settle safely on a base somewhere and begin their life as husband and wife. Though he promised her he would come back, it was a promise he couldn‘t keep.

A little bit about the book:

Callie Richards was no stranger to heartache. Her parents were killed when she was sixteen. Left with her older sister, she fell into a romance with good-looking, Kyle Maine. They became engaged and Callie’s future was set until he was killed in Iraq. Two years later, she pulls herself together to get her Master’s degree and restart her life on her own.

Working and studying at Kensington State University, Callie meets Mac Caldwell, the handsome dean. Together they fight a deadly campus drug ring with heart-breaking results. This is an emotional story, not a cookie-cutter romance, that will make you laugh and cry as Callie struggles to make a new life, find love and her happy ending.

Jean, that was touching, especially after yesterday's news about the Navy Seals who were killed in action. It put a little water in my eye at the memory of those brave men lost. Hooray

Jean said...

Oh, Ben,maybe this is not appropriate after that horrible incident? But yes, there will be women left behind like Callie in my story. The women who loved those Navy Seals.
