Welcome to another week of Weekend Writing Warriors. Today’s snippet comes from my new book, Speak Tenderly To Her: in spite of the positive direction their relationship is taking, Tory is still holding back. Next week will be my final snippet from this book. Hope you’ve enjoyed it. As always, I love your comments and feedback. The synopsis is below.
Tory let the back of his hand graze Isobel’s cheek. Her skin was so soft, so delicate, and so kissable. Yet he didn’t dare.
Why not though? Hadn’t he kissed her the other night? Hadn’t he given himself permission to love her again just hours earlier? What was stopping him?
What if she doesn’t love you?
Isobel has spent her life running from the mistakes of her past, but she is ready to settle down now. Unfortunately second chances aren’t easy to come by, especially when you’ve hurt the person you love the most and Isobel did that four years ago, when she walked out on her husband Tory.
Thanks to the machinations of their pastor though, Isobel finds herself back under the same roof as Tory. The familiarity has her yearning for what used to be, but she knows there’s no way he’s going to accept the truth of her return, much less love her again. And she’s right: when Tory is confronted with all the pain and emotions he thought he’d left behind, he refuses to let go of his bitterness. But as he speaks tenderly to her at their pastor’s behest, the love he once felt for her begins to surface and fill his heart.
Now, as the two struggle with forgiving and being forgiven, they find that reconciliation is possible – but only if they look beyond what was and deal with the trouble that’s followed Isobel back into Tory’s arms.
