Thank you to my dear sister, Kels, who showed me a few years ago how much I truly missed reading. And to my loving husband, for not throwing away my Nook, and planting the seed of writing into my mind. I am forever grateful. Xo
Readers, words cannot thank you enough for supporting me along this incredible journey. I hope you enjoy my novels as much as I do writing them. I thank each and every one of you.
Believe in yourself and follow your dreams…
Excerpt from Enduring Fate:
Warmth flooded throughout me as I stared at our initials carved within the bark, remembering the very day Colton and I had used his dad’s screwdriver and hammer to chisel the first letter of our names. In my mind, I could still hear our laughter when our aching hands had finally finished outlining the surrounding heart.
Everything for us had happened out here—making small bonfires together in an old metal fire pit, snuggling beneath the stars while listening to our laughter filling the skies, confessing our love to one another before making love for the first time.
Fate had brought us together so long ago, but I didn’t know if I had it in me to get us back to where we should be—in our happy place, passionately in love and laughing every single day.
I drew in a breath and swallowed hard before gazing down at him through the thick moisture in my eyes. “Why did you bring me here, Colton?”
He took another step up, just one below me. My pulse quickened at his proximity.
“I’m going to remind you that you are mine, Paige.” He softly tipped my chin up until I met his gaze, and he leaned closer. “The kind of love we share never dims or fades.” He brushed his lips along mine. When my breath caught, he whispered, “It’s the kind of love that lasts forever.”
In the next instant, his mouth captured mine. I gasped with pleasure at the amazing feeling of his domineering warm lips, and I melted against him. It was like going home, and in truth, I was.
Colton’s hands came to my nape and pulled me to him as if he couldn’t get enough of me, and he deepened our connection. Electricity burned throughout me as our lips continued to embrace one another with intense passion and fervor. It kindled something deep within my soul that only he could reach, giving me hope for a future I had believed was lost.
When Colton and I finally broke apart, we were both breathless.
He skimmed his nose across my cheek and then buried his face in my hair. “As much as I want to keep kissing you,” he rasped in a husky tone, “we have a sunset to catch.”
