Reviewers call Baby, Count on Me a simply delicious escape! EXCERPT:
By the time they got back to town, the sun had dipped below the horizon, casting the woods into deep shadow. Crickets and tree frogs were ramping up their chirpy nighttime songs, while fireflies danced and glowed along the edges of the path. The wind had picked up a little, carrying the aroma of fresh cut grass and the earthy smell of red Georgia clay along the trail.
The blessing-of-a-breeze that had cooled them during the day was getting a tad chilly. Jenna wrapped her arms around herself and rubbed her hands up and down to heat them up. It had been so warm during the afternoon, it hadn’t occurred to her to bring a light jacket along.
Beau noticed and stopped to draw her into the warmth of his embrace.
Breathing in his masculine scent, she closed her eyes and let herself relax into his arms. She’d been trying to forget his kiss and keep her hands off him, but he was so warm and she was so content, she decided to let go and enjoy the moment.
Without a doubt, she could get used to this, even if it couldn’t last. “I had a great time tonight, Beau,” she said, turning her gaze up to his and reaching for his hand. “Thank you.”
Jenna stood on tiptoe, only intending to give him a small peck on the cheek. He turned toward her as she leaned in and she grazed the corner of his mouth instead. At her touch, he parted his lips, so she took a chance and shyly ran her tongue along his mouth. He tasted faintly of wine and the chocolate muffins they’d had for dessert.
He groaned, delighting her with his reaction. Emboldened, she delved in, stroked his tongue with hers. She slid her arms around his neck, pressed her body to his. When he tightened his arms around her, she shifted against him, loving the feel of his growing hardness against her abdomen. It was empowering to have such an effect on him.
