Welcome and thank you so much for dropping by! This week, I'm giving you six more sentences from my newly contracted novella, Valentine's Walk. Be sure and check back for the release date and cover reveal. :)
We're skipping ahead this week. In the following scene, Sarah (the physical therapist) has just helped Ethan up and out of his wheelchair. Ethan's having a hard time letting himself be helped, and the moment brings with it an intimacy that surprises them both:
"Everybody needs help sometimes.” Sarah looked him squarely in the eyes when she said it, so close she could feel his breath on her cheek. That strand of hair had fallen back down in front of her face. Ethan reached up and gently tucked it behind her ear. Her breath caught and her lips parted almost imperceptibly when his fingers grazed first her temple and then the delicate skin on her ear. The sensation sent a jolt of electricity surging through her body.
