A Simple Touch


Their hands touched … and stilled. Her breath stopped. A simple touch had never affected her this way before. She looked up and their eyes locked, much the same as they had the night before. She heard him catch his breath, and when he spoke it was only her name. “Jane.”

Loving touch

It was all she could do to stay in her chair. In spite of the fact they barely knew each other … in spite of the fact she knew she was only a guest in his home because of his gallantry and generosity, she wanted to wrap her arms around his neck and kiss him until they were both senseless. She could hardly breathe as her eyes took in every inch of his face. Finally, she was able to speak. “I can see you’re enjoying your breakfast,” she said teasingly. “You’re wearing a little bit of your blueberry muffin as evidence. It’s right here.”

She felt him still as she leaned forward to carefully touch the area next to his mouth gently with her thumb and brush the tiny crumb away. Oh, how she wished she could run her thumb slowly across his full lower lip … move her hands to caress his handsome face. What would it be like to have him capture her hand to lick and then suck on her thumb, followed by one delicious finger after another, and then move on to other more sensitive parts of her body? Her heart was racing at the thought of what it would be like to be held in his arms and to feel the press of his lips against hers.

What am I doing? Why can’t I seem to control myself when I’m around this man?

Author: Anita Louise Romance

My husband, Mike, comes from a large and loving family of nine children, and they were the inspiration for the Adler Series. All of my books center around the important people in every woman’s life – romantic relationships, family, and friends. I do my best to take readers on an emotional journey as they observe how the characters in my stories think and feel. It is my hope that while reading, hearts will be touched, funny-bones will be tickled, and overall, lovers of romance will be uplifted and inspired. I have always been an avid reader of love stories, and my passion for romance found another outlet when I discovered how much fun it was to write about my own smart and sexy heroes and heroines. I am also an ardent and devoted student of personal development. Weaving the life changing principles that guided me to the love of my life and to a happy marriage is an important aspect in each of my novels. . Hope you enjoy getting to know all the Adlers as much and I'm enjoying them. Please look for me on Amazon and other popular sites. Also, it would be appreciated very much if you would please share your feedback with me by posting your review.
