“Love Me Forever” on My Sexy Saturday 86 — Civil War Time Travel : Day 7
Posted by Jina Bacarr
Here’s how it works: Lynn Crain head up this amazing blog every week with a new theme; it’s up to the authors to post 7 paragraphs, 7 words, or 7 sentences. Sexy, of course. Please visit the other authors, too.
Today’s theme: heroines and heroes who have known each other for a long time — this would be my secondary hero and heroine in LOVE ME FOREVER : Pauletta Sue Buckingham and Captain Colton Trent — they met at a soiree at Jefferson Davis’ house before the Civil War…it’s now 1862.
When I started my Civil War time travel, “LOVE ME FOREVER ,” I wanted to tell the story of two women — one modern day who goes back in time; and the other, a true Southern belle.
Meet the our Southern belle, Pauletta Sue Buckingham, in today’s excerpt from the Prologue: Pauletta Sue sneaks down to the riverbank where the Rebel troops are camped to see her beloved, Captain Colton Trent of the Texas Rangers:
“I couldn’t stand being away from you another minute, Colton. I had to come.”
“I want to love you as you should be loved, Pauletta Sue, but not here with the smell of death still settling upon the ground.”
“It’s hallowed ground, my love,” she whispered. “And we have but a few hours to live a lifetime.”
“Even a lifetime isn’t long enough to love you.” He pulled up her skirt, the urge to have his hands on her taking her breath away. The rounded hoops bounced up around her, the fine French lace on her underskirts flitting through his eager fingers like frightened butterflies.
Pauletta Sue waited, her nerves twitching, but she felt no embarrassment. No silly schoolgirl blush tinted her cheeks as he pulled his faded muslin shirt up over his head, the broadness of his shoulders ripping apart the hastily-sewn seams.
Every inch of him taut and muscular. Seizing her imagination and making her want no other man. Ever.
Why must I wait till the war is over to make love to him?
Does Pauletta Sue make love to her Texas Ranger?
Find out in the excerpt on Kindle Scout.
You’ll meet both my heroines and both my heroes in the excerpt. If you nominate my story and it’s published by Kindle Scout, then you’ll receive a free copy!
It’s a family saga of love and romance and war. Believe me, I walked every road, fought every battle with my characters, even walked around in a hoop skirt to “get it right.” This is a book of the heart…any questions? Please ask…
