Sweet Saturday Samples

 Here is a short excerpt of my sweet contemporary romance, "Sunny Days, Moonlit Nights":

As he was walking along, something moving in the lake caught his eye. He stopped. No, he was not mistaken; someone was swimming in the lake, alone. He saw shadows in the moonlight as the lone swimmer moved back and forth between the ropes holding the float and the stairs to the dock. Then the swimmer disappeared under the water and came up, then went under again. This time he didn’t see the swimmer reappear. The person could be drowning and no one would know!
Mike raced down to the dock, ripped off his clothes and dove in
wearing only his boxers. When he broke the surface, he heard a
“Don’t come near me!” Sunny hollered.
Mike stopped and looked at her.
“Sunny? Is that you?”
“Yes. Stay where you are.”
“What are you doing in the lake alone so late at night?”
“I’m skinny dipping. Stay where you are.”
“Skinny dipping? Alone?”
“Of course alone!”
“You’re not waiting for Gavin, are you?” he asked, jealousy
and suspicion tightening in his chest.
“No. Don’t be ridiculous. But I’m not dressed, so please keep
your distance,” she said, bobbing up and down by the rope.
Mike swam closer.
“Looks like I have you just where I want you,” he teased as he
slowly closed in on her.

I'm afraid Gavin is asleep at home. Too bad he's missing this opportunity!
