Teaser:

About fifteen minutes later, Letitia was by the pool side in search of a vacant sun lounger. Every colourful sunbed in sight either had a towel on it or it was occupied by a woman sunbathing or a man just chilling with his arms behind his head as he stared at the people walking by.

After a three-minute trek around the circular outdoor pool, fringed by tall palm trees, she found a lone lounger behind an occupied one under a palm tree. It was the perfect spot, with pretty shade from direct sunlight.

“Is the recliner behind yours free?” her question was directed at the man lying face down on a blue sunbed.

His toned butt cheeks were moulded to fit his clinging black swimming shorts to precision. And his evenly tanned wide shoulders tapered down to his lean waist. Her straying eyes flicked on to his thighs and legs coated with just the right amount of brown hair.

Right now, the muscles in his calves and thighs tensed as he leaned on one elbow to look up at her.

“Adam!” she shrieked as if he was an old friend. Walking among strangers in search of a lounger made finding a familiar face an event to celebrate.

He jumped from his lying position and rushed to stand beside her. “Hey! Where have you been? I looked for you yesterday.” A clear grin appeared on his face as his eyes roamed around her bikini clad body.

She had wrapped her towel around her shoulders. Her desire to get rid of her insecurities was the sole reason for her choice. But with his eyes feeding on every rise and fall on her body and the stretch marks on her thighs, she fought the urge to cover up.

“You look like you could use my company,” she teased with a huge smile to hide her discomfort. For no apparent reason, she wanted to walk into his big arms for a hug. Or maybe it was to hide from his eyes.

As if she had made her intention known by telepathy, Adam lifted one eyebrow, stretched out his hands and she hurried straight on without a moment’s hesitation.

“I missed you, yesterday,” he cooed in her hair as he kept his arms wrapped around her waist and shoulders. “It’s good to see you again.”

Sighing with a great deal of contentment, Annora squeezed her arms around his waist. Hard muscles– warm and lively–singed her breasts and entire skin. She could stand within his hold for a whole day. “It’s nice to see you again too,” she confessed. “I felt lost walking around here by myself.”

“Was kind of lonely for me too,” he added in understanding, as his fingers splayed on her upper back. He did not touch her in a sensual way, but exhilaration sprayed through her insides in a mad rush. Or was it relief racing around her body?

“I’m sorry I went off in a huff yesterday.” Apologizing to him now was not what she had in mind. Yet, her mouth uttered the words and she could not recall them.

“It’s okay. I was in a mood after the wallet incident. I took it out on you and I apologize.” He plucked her chin, so she had no choice but to stare into his eyes. “Do you want to sit down or do you want to swim?”

“Sit down,” he suggested with a chuckle when she did not say a word.

“Sorry. I was thinking about your missing wallet,” she fibbed to avoid admitting she was lost in his gaze.

“Oh, don’t worry about it. I called the card companies. And I’ve reported everything in the wallet stolen. I’ll get replacements.”

“That’s great,” she said, sitting down and shifting her bum from side to side. The cushioned sunbed was warm against her backside. She bet the warmth was from his body heat and not the sunshine. “I’m glad you’ve sorted it out.”

Adam dropped down to sit behind her. His thighs warmed hers and he cushioned her back with his chest. So many pairs of eyes turned to stare at them, but hurriedly looked away when Annora’s head came up.

While seated close to his gorgeous body, a healthy dose of confidence seeped from her head to her feet.

“I’m not going to mention how beautiful your body is or how I find your scent appealing. I’m just going to ask what you’ve been up to since yesterday and why you didn’t come out of your room.”

Apart from their thighs meeting briefly on the lounger, he did not touch her body, yet she struggled to take in air through her nose and let it out normally. Oh, but confidence erupted into something wonderful inside her and she leaned into him a little.

“I’m hoping you’re being honest about your compliments,” she said to him with a slight tilt of her head as she peered into his eyes.

When he met her gaze with a look of pure admiration instead of uttering a word, she nodded.

“Thank you for the kind words. I stayed upstairs because I didn’t want to see you again.”

His arms near her waist tightened instinctively. “Because of our bout?”

“Yes, and partly because we agreed to go our separate ways yesterday.”

He started to laugh and his hands around her relaxed. “I’m afraid we’re stuck with each other while we’re on this trip.”

She curved her backside in between his legs to stare at him directly. “Are we?”

Synopsis:


Sitting there with the pieces of your life around you, there seemed to be a pattern. There was faith, love, deceit, lust, and loss—in that order. You didn’t think you were deserving of love. That is why everything was being taken from you, and you were ready to give up on life.

Through your poetry, faith, and learning from your past, you can rewrite the story. It was after coming through all the experiences and being stronger, you realized there is always a new chapter.

The book will take you on the journey of a young girl growing up in Connecticut, who had to take some stumbles along the way to come into her own and realize instead of tearing herself down for the decisions she made, there is a lesson. Love is greater than anyone can imagine and can warm you like the sunshine after the rain.

You went from the beginning, the journey, the test, and the testimony to say, “There Is Sunshine after the Rain.”


Excerpt:

Turn Back The Hands of Time
I am standing on the edge
Looking out at the land
The land where you farmed
The land where you broke your back to make a way
I look at your hands that are rugged, swollen, and show the scars
You never gave up because you said you wanted a better life for us
There was never an alarm clock to wake you
You didn’t complain about going to work because it was what you had to do
You talked about the amount of cotton you picked from sun up to sun down
You told the stories that your hands were raw until they bled
As I rode down the highways
Looking at the fields of cotton
My eyes welled up
I asked to stop the car
I got out and I breathed the air
I can only imagine
You shared the tales of having to drop out of school so that you could work the fields
I stretch out my hands now
Though they resemble yours, they have never worked in the field
My hands are smooth like a city girl
If I could turn back the hands of time
I would let you be the childhood boy
Experience the things that you missed growing up
I would let you go to school
You would be an architect
You always liked building things
I understand that I can’t
That was the road that you had to travel
The journey wasn’t always sweet
But if I could! I would! Turn back the hands of time
