Cade and Hannah share a romantic moment…
“You’re not nervous, are you?”
Her head began to shake, but then turned into a nod.
“There’s nothing to be nervous about. We are two people in an ancient gazebo that I played in as a boy. And all the boy is asking for is a dance.” I extended an arm toward her.
A smile lit her face in the shadows, and she came to me, stepping into my arms. “I am not leaping between the benches like in the movie.”
I pulled her close, and she molded her body into mine, pressing her cheek into my chest. “Never. I wouldn’t dream of it.” Full body contact was all I wanted.
“Too bad it isn’t raining like in the movie.” Her absent-minded comment was toned with innocence.
“Yeah, too bad.” Mine was breathy, tinged with undertones of meaning. Imagining Hannah with her flimsy silk ball gown plastered to her body—her lack of underthings body—did things to me.
I pressed us closer together with my arms, wanting her to know what she did to me. No inhibiting denim held me restrained tonight. And I didn’t wear underthings either.
“You’re…” Her voice had dropped to a breathy whisper.
“You started it.” Yeah. I was twelve. I blamed the gazebo.
Hannah laughed softly. “I’d say I’m sorry, but I’m not.”
The slow jazzy song ended. Silence followed. We continued swaying around to our own rhythm. I felt like I could dance with her forever, hidden in our private garden, mixing great memories of my past and present.
My gaze fell on the bottle. In spite of my not wanting an intimate moment to end, the band had taken leave, and there was only so much close proximity a man in need could handle.
“Let’s make a toast to tonight.” On a deep, determined breath, I broke away, striding over to the bottle.
With a few quick twists, I pulled off the wiring and wrapper. Hannah joined me, but eyed the frayed wood on the bench.
I grabbed my jacket from the railing and spread it on the splintering surface. I bowed deeply. “A gentleman covers a puddle for the lady.”
“Most obliged.” She dipped her head and spun around. And although she could’ve sat in the center, she chose to sit closest to me, her silk-covered thigh pressing into my mine.
She looked beautiful. Dark eyes sparkling. Waves of hair tumbling down one shoulder. The barest fabric teasing across a body meant to be…
I took another cleansing breath. Then I gripped the cork steady in my left hand, grabbed the base of the bottle with my right, and slowly twisted the bottle. The cork gave way with a pop! and frothy foam poured out as I tilted it away.
I swallowed hard.
On another breath, I wiped my mind clear and focused on the beautiful woman looking up at me expectantly. I raised the bottle. “To a Julie Andrews musical and childhood memories.”
She reached up, placing her hands over mine. “To new memories. And musicals.”
I pulled the bottle down. “Oh, no. I don’t do musicals.”
She bit her lip, then smiled wide. “Oh, yes. You do.”
I shook my head. “No.”
She nodded, grinning wider. “Yes. It’s a nonnegotiable point.”
I sighed, lowering the Champagne bottle. “One.”
“I can live with that. One.”
I angled my head, glaring at her. “But not on the first date.”
She burst out laughing. “Seriously? Okay. We should make a rule, though.”
“Date rules? Like how far we can go without seeing a musical? Fine. Fifth.” If I had to attend a cheesy musical, it would be at the last possible moment.
“Fourth. And since we’re paralleling date rules? I also mean sex.”
“Done.” Her eyes gleamed with humor.
In the history of dating, I’d be willing to bet no man has ever made an appointment for sex and a musical on the third date. I raised the bottle and took a healthy swig, then passed it to her, casting her a sidelong glance. “Shrewd. I’m impressed.”
Then she wrapped those full lips around the bottle opening.
The third date? I didn’t know how I would make it that long.
Q: Romance readers have a lot of choices these days. What makes No Weddings Limited Edition Box Set: Books 1-4 stand out in the crowd?
A: NO WEDDINGS has a fun and unique story line, is written in male first person POV, and is humorous, intelligent, emotional, and heartwarming.
Written by a husband and wife team, a higher level of authenticity is brought to the characters, and we’ve been praised by readers and reviewers alike for bringing out those unique character voices. We hope you think so too.
Also, the No Weddings Series eclipses genres. Although we’ve categorized the books as contemporary romance, romantic comedy, and coming of age, which they are, reviewers have also described them as “erotic romance”, “this isn’t a typical new adult romance”, and “chick lit with a twist.” (The last made us smile, because the twist referred to NO WEDDINGS being told from the hero’s perspective.)
NO WEDDINGS is in Cade’s POV
ONE FUNERAL is in Hannah’s (continuing the story)
TWO BAR MITZVAHS returns to Cade’s POV (continuing the story)
THREE CHRISTMASES alternates in both POVs
