What’s Meant to Be…

From Christina: There was no “Linky” this week for the usual Sneak Peek Sunday Blog Hop. I enjoy sharing a little weekly snippet from my writing, so I’ve gone ahead and posted six paragraphs from my current WIP.  The story is “He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not”, and it’s the third book in the “Sunset Series”.  The book is scheduled for release from Secret Cravings Publishing in January. Those who’ve read “Not the Marrying Kind” will remember Emily Sue Phillips as the annoying little sister who loved sneaking about. In this story, she’s a very grown up young lady. Enjoy the snippet!

200261731-001Before she had time to think, Emily found herself literally swept off her feet, held in the strong, sure arms of the man she loved. Her heart raced with a reckless beat. Unable to speak, she rested her head on his shoulder, closed her eyes, and gave in to the wondrous sensations rippling through her body. Warmth rushed from her fingertips to her toes. Every nerve in her body came alive.

“I swore I wouldn’t let this happen,” he growled against her cheek, his hot breath tickling and teasing. “Not yet. Not here. Not now.”

“It’s all right.” Reaching up, she smoothed a hand over his fiery hair, reveling in the coarse, wiry feel of it. “I don’t want to wait. Things happen when they’re supposed to. That’s what I’ve always believed.”

She heard his breath coming in quick, short bursts. “I believe it, too,” he whispered. “We’ve always known this was meant to be. We’re meant to be, Em.”

“Hmmm,” she murmured.” Even though she loved hearing his words, and even though she wanted it to be true, a sudden sense of loss shot through her, leaving her trembling and afraid. How could he speak to her of what was meant to be after the way he’d treated her? He’d turned his back on her, had sent her away, had done everything in his power to break the bonds between them.

He’d broken her heart. Now, he wanted her love once more?


I hope you’ve enjoyed this little “snippet”.
