Kiss and Make Up Day–you know you want to…
Kiss and Make Up Day…
Sends a chill through you, knowing that somewhere there’s someone you’d like to kiss and make up with…
My hero and heroine in LOVE ME FOREVER don’t know each other that well yet (she’s just traveled back through time to 1862 disguised as a Confederate officer and he just realized she’s a woman), but they’re already sparring…
“This is war, Lieutenant,” Flynt said, trying to ignore the softness in her eyes and the unmistakable feminine scent the stink of battle couldn’t hide. “Not a Sunday picnic.”
“A war that will take thousands of lives before it’s over,” she said. “Brother against brother. Father against son. Many will die in Yankee prisons because of the inhumane torture they suffer there.” She banged her fist on the desk, surprising him. “You must do something to help these men, Major Stephens. Give them blankets and better food. Medicine. Treat them as human beings, not animals.”
“You speak more like a politician than a soldier,” Flynt said, puzzled. How well she mirrored his own thoughts. He’d attempted to influence sanitation conditions in the prison camp, but the military commission rebuked his efforts. He didn’t need this female reminding him. “Who are you, Lieutenant?”
She grimaced. “You wouldn’t believe me if I told you.”
“What is your name? Surely you can tell me that.”
“Lieutenant Jordan, sir,” was all she’d say, no matter how many times he asked. He doubted it was her real name.
Flynt wanted to grab her, make her explain herself. She dared to raise her eyes again to meet his. She looked familiar, very familiar as he caught her gaze, but let it go quickly. She was like the lightning in a summer thunderstorm, promising something thrilling and filled with the spirit of the tempest.
Something he wouldn’t dare dream about.
How could he? He’d made a promise on his honor as a Virginian and a gentleman to another woman.
A promise he must keep.
Yet he couldn’t help but want to kiss her. To feel her soft lips on his.
Does he get that kiss? If you love Civil War romance and time travel and TWO hunky military heroes, find out in my Kindle Scout winner.
She wore gray.
He wore blue.
But their love defied the boundaries of war.
