The morning after they meet scene. Nera is helping Aggie the B&B owner with breakfast and she keeps eyeing the biscuits. Finally she gets one and stuffs her face when Wolfe walks up behind her and is all “Morning Nera.” She get a little embarrassed because she is wearing her purple sweat pants, “I like big books and I can not lie” t-shirt with a mouth full of biscuit.
She ends up having to sit next to him at the table and he asks he she wants to more biscuits, obviously teasing her, and she cracks me up because she’s all “Jokes on him, I love biscuits.” Then accepts them. Their fingers touch and she gets the tingles. I just love it when they have a little spark at the first tough
When Evan, Aggie’s husband asks Wolfe what brings him to Durness, he answers that he just wanted to get away from the madness. Nera hears the sadness in his voice and grabs his hand for support. It was a little out of character for her but she just couldn’t help herself.
It’s the first time they truly touch (not just a graze), and it’s intense. She tries to pull her hand away but he refuses to let her go. It’s a big moment for me because she kinda sees where things will go with them. He gives her the look of determination before he releases her hand. That for me as the writer and I hope as the reader is a “Heck yeah here we go moment.” The whole scene was comical but showed the start of their relationship. You could see in his eyes that what she did meant something to him. He was determined that he was going to pursue her and not let her go. Sigh. I love Wolfe.
Jessica Florence makes her home in Southwest Florida where she runs her own business, and of course writing! She one day after reading a book a day for a year just sat down and started writing, thus finding a new amazing hobby that she was looking for, for years, and that was also very therapeutic.
She spends her days reading, writing, watching TV, working, playing with her cute as hell baby, and black German Shepherd Rogue aka Rogue-i-bear, and of course tormenting her husband ;)
She also enjoys taking naps, bubble baths, eating pickles like candy, and having Harry Potter marathons.
About the Book
He sings of suffering. His eyes hold the pain of living in sorrow.
The moment our gaze meets recognition flares within.
We are tortured souls drifting in a sea of darkness.
He knows I have secrets that I'll never tell.
I am numb
I am broken
I am dirty
I can never be the guiding light through the darkness he thinks I am.
I have forsaken my past, I rely on keeping myself shut off.
But he has secrets too, secrets that would destroy everything I have left.
I wish things were different, that maybe we could be each other's lifeline.
But destiny drags us down like an anchor.
The broken can only drift in the sea barely staying afloat.
