A peek into Breakwater Lane…

Leave a comment

It’s Tuesday! We made it through Monday… Let’s talk romance, more importantly, Breakwater Lane which is coming out August 31st!

I wanted you to get a peek at Breakwater Lane. If you are a member of my Street Team, then you’ve seen the whole first chapter, but here’s a little snippet from the first time the two main characters are together in the book…

     She took a deep breath and turned the key in the lock, opening her new life.

     “Hey, can I help you?” A deep male voice said from behind her.

     Jordan jumped, putting her hand on her heart. “Oh my goodness. You scared the life out of me.” Jordan said as she whirled around, looking up in the most amazing set of eyes she’d ever seen. They weren’t blue exactly, but a greenish blue, almost the color of the water in Wishful Harbor just after a storm.

     “I’m sorry, are you Hank’s granddaughter?”

      “Yes.” Jordan reached out her hand to the man. “Jordan.”

      “Glad to meet you Jordan, for the second time.” The man grinned. “Skyler, Skyler Evans.”

     Jordan tilted her head, curious. “Second time. I don’t understand. Have we met before?”

     “We met behind the building. I was fishing and you were falling into the water. I dove in and saved you.” Skyler said, crossing his muscular arms across his chest with a grin.

     “Oh, I didn’t recognize you,” Jordan said with a giggle as she remembered the incident that he was speaking of. She also remembered the crush she’d had on it.

     “I can imagine. You ran away as soon as I saved you.” Skyler said with a little sarcasm lacing his voice. He remembered the spoiled little girl that she’d been. Now he saw a beautiful young woman but had she lost her spoiled ways.

      “Well, I was so embarrassed. I’d been showing off in front of you, then fell over the side of the dock.” Jordan said with a grin as she put her purse on the table, turning to look around. “So, you stayed here?”

     “It’s my home. I can’t imagine living anywhere other than Wishful Harbor.”

     “But didn’t you want to get out and enjoy life?”

     Skyler scowled, bringing his brows together in anger. “I see you haven’t changed a bit.”

     Jordan whirled back around to face him, confusion in her eyes. “Excuse me.”

     “You were a spoiled brat then, and I see you’re still a spoiled brat.” Skyler turned to walk out the door.

     At first, Jordan watched him walking out the door, then she ran after him. “Hey, wait a minute. Why are you calling me a spoiled brat?”

     Skyler stopped, not turning around. “Lady, you don’t have a clue about small town life. It’s a way of life that some enjoy. Not everyone wants to travel or go to large cities.” Then he turned around, looking down at her. “And I do enjoy life, every day.”

That was a short little peek, but you get the gist of the start of their relationship. It’s as turbulent as the water in Wishful Harbor during a storm.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…
