And now for today's Sunday Smooch from The Gift Of A Child by Sue MacKay........
The Gift Of A Child.....
Scene set-up: [Last night the one woman Mitch never thought he’d see again after she dumped him has turned up, looking very different to the classy Jodi he used to know three years ago. What’s more the Jodi lookalike dropped a bomb - he’s a dad, and his son is gravely ill.]
At the park Mitch pulls up beside Jodi’s vehicle and climbs out.
‘Mitch?’ Jodi tilted her head back, blinking as the autumn sunlight caught her eyes.
‘I need to find you.’ He tapped her sternum with a finger. ‘Somewhere in there is the Jodi I once knew.’
And then he took her shoulders and pulled her close. His lips covered hers as she gasped. Hot air spilled into his mouth. But he didn’t pull away. Instead, he eased into her, hauling her up close against his chest, his stomach, his thighs. And tasted her, recognized her. This was his Jodi. Not that worried woman holding him to ransom. This warm, responsive woman not pushing him away but sliding her hands around his neck – this was the real Jodi.
He breathed her in. She still used lavender-scented shampoo. His hands splayed over her waist. His tongue danced across hers. Finally everything was beginning to make sense. This was the real deal.
Which meant so were the problems she’d brought to town.
The Gift of a Child is the first in a duet about the infamous Maitland brothers.How to Resist a Heartbreaker by Louisa George is the follow on story
