WELCOME BACK TO APPLE GROVE by C.H. Admirand

“Look, Garahan,” she began, only to stop when he got into her personal space.

“Yeah, Mulcahy?”

She tried to take a step back, but he’d boxed her in, her back to the counter. “You’re too close,” she bit out.

“No, ma’am,” he rasped. “I’m nowhere near close enough yet.” He let his gaze drop to her full lips and then back up to her amazing green eyes. “But that is all about to change.”

The hand in the middle of his chest surprised him.

“No.”

He relaxed his stance, eased back, and held up his hands. “Any reason in particular you don’t want me to kiss you, Grace? Because that’s what I want to do…kiss you.”

“I…you…we haven’t—”

“Ah,” he said, staring at her mouth. “But we could.” When she ran a hand through her hair and licked her lips, he decided he’d staked enough of a claim for the moment. He’d remind her throughout the day that he was interested—all the way interested. Grace Mulcahy was a woman with a capital W, and he intended to sample those lips before the day was out.

“Coffee?” Her voice broke over the word and he started to feel sorry for her. He’d come on strong and knew he had a tendency to do so when he found something—or someone—he wanted. But Pat had learned that life was short and you had to grab it with both hands or take the chance that you’d lose it all.

  1. I really enjoy reading about a fella who can feel compassion along with white-hot passion, which is the sense I got from the hero in this excerpt. Dig it!

  2. I have a feeling Grace won't be resisting Pat's kisses for long, he's obviously lost someone/thing, and isn't about to let it happen again!
