The Invitation #teasertuesday

As I take a step toward the wood stove, I feel her hand on my arm. “Are you sure it won’t be any problem for you to bring a guest to dinner?” “Definitely not,” I reply. “Besides, my sister’s bringing home her fiancé and I need a reason not to be too hard on him.”Continue reading “The Invitation #teasertuesday”

Forbidden #teasertuesday

The next morning, Campbell and I hardly look at each other or even talk. Sure, we do the usual good mornings, how are you bit but that’s about it. It’s as if the clock has struck twelve and he’s on a mission to take Cinderella home seven hours too late. He plays R&B on theContinue reading “Forbidden #teasertuesday”

“… Best Decision I Ever Made” #teasertuesday

Campbell finds me in the living room two hours later, sitting on the lambskin rug on the floor in front of his Christmas tree that’s all lit up. Fully decked out with the decorations we’d purchased at the holiday market, he added white string lights that make the golden ribbons and tinsel glisten like stars.Continue reading ““… Best Decision I Ever Made” #teasertuesday”

The Kiss #teasertuesday

“Well, good night, you two lovebirds. Don’t cause a racket,” Dad says as Mom starts pulling him toward their bedroom playfully. “Let them be, honey,” she says, winking at us. “I’m sure Logan knows what to do.” “Mom!” But even as I protest, I know it’s useless. If their goal was to embarrass prim andContinue reading “The Kiss #teasertuesday”

A No-Date Date #teasertuesday

“You look… stunning,” Campbell says as we stand in front of each other, fidgeting. How long have I been standing at the door without saying a thing, too busy thinking about him and his blue eyes… and his abs? “Thank you.” “Why the boots?” I look down at my two-inch knee-high boots. “Anything wrong withContinue reading “A No-Date Date #teasertuesday”

Tuesday Word Count

I wanted to write this last night but my mind was done after writing 3,133 words. Yup, 3,133 words for a total word count last night of 16k and change. More words! pic.twitter.com/SBFlWRLGEX — Liz Durano 📚 (@Lizdurano) August 7, 2018 Today, I added more words for a total of 18,276. That leaves me withContinue reading “Tuesday Word Count”

Just Us #teasertuesday

This time, Dax doesn’t answer right away. It’s as if he’s probably wondering how the hell he can get himself out of this crazy woman’s bed as fast as he can and get a real woman in town instead, someone with no silly baggage like yours truly. “God, Dax, I’m so sorry I messed thisContinue reading “Just Us #teasertuesday”

Teaser Tuesday: Seven Minutes

She rolls her eyes. “Half an hour is not a quickie. Not by a long shot.” “Oh, too long? So you’ve been timing it?” She swats my chest playfully with her hand. “No, I was not timing it, but you said so yourself then, Dax. We only have thirty minutes before Nana comes back withContinue reading “Teaser Tuesday: Seven Minutes”

Falling for Jordan #TeaserTuesday

The sidewalks aren’t crowded at this time of the morning and I like it. Piper probably thinks it’s one of our leisurely walks, although this time, there’s no elevator ride up to the High Line where I walk all the way to the end of the line and back. Sometimes I find an empty benchContinue reading “Falling for Jordan #TeaserTuesday”

It’s a Heat Wave #TeaserTuesday: Meet Addy and Jordan

“So you just got back yesterday?” I ask, hating the silence that springs between us. “Yes, and I’ve been catching up on stuff… and jet lag.” “I imagine this wasn’t anywhere near the stuff you were expecting to catch up on.” He smiles. “No, but it is what it is. I’m glad you told me.”Continue reading “It’s a Heat Wave #TeaserTuesday: Meet Addy and Jordan”
