#SundaySample from One Week in Your Arms #GoodreadsGiveaway

As he watched her, he thought of the call she’d received last night. “Do you and your ex keep in touch?”
Instead of an answer or comeback, she looked at the ocean.
Inside him, a voice protested as he walked over to where she stood. Leave it alone. But there was something he had to know. He stopped beside her and stared out at the horizon where the whitecaps rolled along the surface of  the water. “It’s not over between the two of you, is it?”
She turned to go and he caught her arm. He wasn’t going to let her go until she answered his question. A deep breath escaped her lips and she finally lifted her face. That’s when he saw a tear glisten on her cheek.
His gaze followed its fall as she said, “I told you it’s complicated. Okay?”
He wiped the tear from her cheek with his thumb. “Does he know you’re here with me?”
“No. He doesn’t even know you exist.”
Her words came as a blow. “You never told him about us?”
“I never told anyone about you.”
He looked out the window again as a tic created a notch in his jaw. “Sure,” he said in a rough voice. “There was no reason to say anything about us.”
 “Let it go,” she said softly.
He had been trying to let it go for a long time. “Have you let it go?”

#GoodreadsGiveaway Win a copy One Week in Your Arms via @LyricalPress #Fabulous

Starting Monday off right with a book giveaway for the first title in my Love Heals All series!!! You can win a print copy of One Week in Your Arms from the publisher, Kensington Books. All you gotta do is go over to Goodreads and throw your hat in the ring at Goodreads Giveaway

While you're there, don't forget to add the book to your "To Read" list. 

I call One Week in Your Arms my secret baby, second chance romance because the story is all about both of those as Dr. Marla Grant is reluctantly reunited with her ex-lover, billionaire Carson Blackwell. She didn't know about the billionaire part when she had a fling with him and years later, he doesn't know that fling produced a child. Besides the obvious drama, the story has some fun moments because Marla is a Tennessee country girl.

I actually consider myself a Tennesseean because that where all my ancestors lived and my parent were from Tennessee but we ended up living on the Mississippi side of the Tennessee and Mississippi state line. I live in Burford Pusser "Walking Tall" country. Anyway, Marla's character was fun and easy to write. I have told some of my friends who have read my short stories Marla has a little Darlene in her. Darlene being my redneck Marilyn Monroe wannabe. 

Have a good week!  I've got to get back to work on the third book in the series.
