“Come on,” he said, opening his legs and patting the small space in front of him on the single saucer he’d brought. “Fun awaits.”
She looked way down the slope. The bottom seemed a mile away. She carefully sat while he held one of her arms to help her perch carefully on the saucer.
She grabbed the rope handles while Joe pushed off, wrapping both his arms around her. They flew down the slope. Abby screamed just for fun as the wind rushed past, grabbing at her hat and scarf. At the bottom, her feet came down and dug into the snow. The saucer went one way. They went another. She found herself on top of him.
Abby laughed. “Can we do that again?”
Joe wrapped his arms around her. “Sure. I may never be able to father children, but it’ll be worth it.”
His arms tightened. His hazel eyes warmed, like he’d mixed more cocoa in with the peppermint. A snowflake landed on his adorably crooked nose, broken years ago by one of his crazy sibs. Abby’s bones melted into his teddy bear snuggle-ness. She studied his well-shaped mouth, lips full and open slightly, and on how his breath visibly mingled with hers. She wasn’t cold. In fact, a hot coal seeped from her midsection and traveled south. She should pull free right now before one of them did something stupid. Joe was just a friend. A very, very good friend. Was she still leading him on when she promised she’d stop? She would hate herself in the morning if she let him kiss her.
Abby leaned in and kissed him.
Jill Jaynes began her love affair with romance when she was a teenager growing up in Southern California, spending many a late-night under the covers with a flashlight and good romance novel. This early addiction stuck, and she discovered one day that telling great stories was even more fun than reading them.
When she’s not writing, you can find her a) wine-tasting, hiking or otherwise hanging out with her awesome husband, b) walking her two high-maintenance dogs, c) plotting her next story with her writer-daughter or d) working at her day job in her spare time.
Barb DeLong has always had a passion for reading and writing. She has won and been a finalist in several writing contests. Animals are another passion, and creatures both wild and domestic are featured in most of her stories of love, laughter and magic. Barb contributed contemporary romance stories in Romancing the Pages and Secrets of Moonlight Cove anthologies. A transplant from Canada, she enjoys the sunny climes of Southern California with her one-and-forever hubby and a fluffy, blue-eyed ragdoll cat, two children and five grandchildren.
Kathleen Harrington, multi-published, award-winning author, has touched the hearts of readers across the country and the world with her sparkling tales of high adventure and unending love. Her historical romances have been published in Chinese, Russian, Italian, and German. She lives in Southern California with her American Bulldog, Auron.
When Ottilia Scherschel, a Hungarian immigrant, started sixth grade, she learned her fifth language. After retiring from teaching languages at the college level, she spends her time writing romantic suspense stories set in foreign climes. She has been a finalist in a number of writing contests and published a short story in the Romancing the Pages anthology. Ottilia loves to pack a suitcase to visit family, friends and food or wine purveyors anywhere in the world. When she is not writing, she can be found at the movies, at the gym, or cooking for her husband, kids and grandkids.
Angela Shelley was born in Vancouver, Canada in 1973 and grew up in rural Southern British Columbia. Her love for children’s fantasy stems from reading CS Lewis, Tolkien, George MacDonald, JK Rowling, Terry Brooks, Neil Gaiman, and many, many more wonderful authors. She lives in Los Angeles, California, with her husband and their twins.
