Here’s an excerpt from my WIP – Captive Hearts – Book 2 Hearts series:
Instead of scowling at her, like he usually did when she lost a sparing match with him, something flashed in his eyes. Impression? Desire? No, couldn’t be that. His breath of vanilla and mint washed over her, and she couldn’t stop staring at his mouth. Had it always been full with a dimple on the side of his cheek when he smiled?
“Guess I took you by surprise that time.” She forced her eyes from his mouth to stare into his gold flecked brown eyes. “Maybe you need to up your game?”
Without a comeback, he lowered his head and brushed his mouth across hers. Tingles spread through her. Before she could react, he pulled away and stood.
“Now who’s off?” Tommy smirked and his dimple deepened.
Obviously she was. Tommy didn’t like her, not in a romantic way, he couldn’t. They’d spent years together ever since the Uncles faked their death and became their guardians. After their foster parents were killed, the Uncles were the only ones they and their dad trusted. She thought she knew men; she’d been so sure Paul was the good guy he pretended to be. And it had all been a lie.
Tommy placed his hands on her shoulders until she looked up at him.
“Don’t bring him into your thoughts.” His brown eyes softened. “He’s not worth it. You are so much better than that scum.”
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
Divorced and disillusioned of love and believing all the love songs and books exaggerated, she put aside her creativity for life. Many years past before characters, from the familiar to the freshly conceived, came to her again, but this time teasing at a new passion, the written word.
Gradually, her real life hero brought love and magic back into existence. During the time when her characters were getting reacquainted, the love of her life was showing her that true love never gives up and rekindles no matter how many times others attempt to extinguish it. Today, she is happily married with three children.
Andrea believes in the power of change and delighting in each moment. But most fervently, she believes in the magic of love and imagination again.
