My Most Romantic Scene...by Kristin Wallace

So it’s February and this month we celebrate Valentine's Day and all things romance. Our theme on Romancing the Genres is even “My most romantic…”

So I thought I’d share a romantic scene from my upcoming release, Last Stop At Paradise. It’s the third and most likely final book in my Shellwater Key Tales series. Callie Dalton is a widow trying to outrun a scandal caused by her deceased husband. Noah Johnson is the man trying to convince her that he can be trusted.

(Noah’s) gaze centered on her. “I think maybe I was supposed to wait for something else. For someone else.”
A clanging went off inside her mind and Callie renewed her efforts to get away. “Don’t say it.”
“I have to,” Noah said, securing her more firmly against him. “I know you’re scared, and you don’t trust anyone, but in my heart I know that you are what I’ve been waiting for, Callie. I knew it the moment I saw in you in the pool.”
            “That’s crazy.”
“Maybe, but it doesn’t stop me from wanting you.” He framed her face. “And I know you feel it too, no matter how frightened you are.”
She shook her head. “I don’t.”
            A smile appeared and the twinkle that always took her breath away appeared in those changeable eyes of his. “Liar.”
She narrowed her gaze at him. “Did you just—I am not lying.”
“No?” He lowered his head and the warmth of his breath touched her skin as he skimmed across her cheek to the hollow below her ear. “So you feel nothing right now?”
A shudder coursed through her. “Absolutely not.”
The ripple of his chuckle chased along her nerve endings and then his lips were hovering inches over hers. “Still nothing?”
“Not a thing.” She let out a soft moan and tilted her face, seeking his lips. “Noah please…”
Her eyes closed as she waited for him to make the last move. Then at the last possible second, he pulled back. “No.”
“What?” Her eyes flew open.
“I think you will have to kiss me. Prove that you’re not scared.”
“You’re crazy. How does that prove anything?”
He brushed the hair back behind her ear and trailing his fingers down the plane of her neck, sending another wave of chills down her spine. “I could kiss you, but then you might say I took advantage. If you kiss me, then it’s your choice to trust me.”
            “Maybe I’m just sex-starved. I could be using you to scratch an itch that hasn’t been satisfied in a long time.”
His laughter rang out in the quiet workshop. “You think I don’t have an itch?” He framed her face once more, his fingers massaging her scalp, sending ripples of sensation everywhere. “No, I want you to come to me….”

So there you go…this book should be out SOON stay tuned!
