Welcome to another week of Weekend Writing Warriors. Today’s selection comes from my new book, Speak Tenderly To Her: after spending the day with Isobel, Tory decides to it’s time… As always, I love your comments and feedback. The synopsis is below.
She possessed the other part of him that he was missing; and as the day came to a close, [he] decided he wanted to feel whole again.
Inside the apartment, Tory locked the door as Isobel reached for the overhead light.
“Leave it off,” he said, dropping his keys on the counter.
She turned around, obviously puzzled.
With his heart beating hard but sure, Tory approached her and placed his hand on the nape of her neck, pressing his lips to hers. He didn’t wait for her response, resting his other hand on the small of her back to pull her close to him. Isobel remained stiff, surprised and unsure, but as he continued to kiss her, she relaxed and melted into him.
This is the final snippet I’ll be posting from the book, so I thought it only appropriate to give you some closure. Tory and Isobel still need to work through her past, but this is a start to a new future. I do hope you’ve enjoyed the story. The ebook is available for purchase at All Romance eBooks, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Kobo and Smashwords. Or you can get the paperback at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Createspace and Cimos.
Starting next week, I’ll begin posting snippets from my WIP, Stay With Me. Until then, have a great week.
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.
