Sweet Saturday Sample

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Today's sample comes from my very soon to be released Christmas novel The Table in the Window.  We're hoping for a Black Friday release.  The book will be available at http://www.astraeapress.com

He reached for Marley’s hand as they got off the elevator. “Did you have a good time tonight?”

Marley ducked her head and blushed when she saw the hot light dancing in his eyes.  "You know I did."

He gently raised her chin and stared into her eyes. “You have beautiful eyes,” he whispered.

Marley’s heart took off in a mad gallop. Every single nerve ending in her body sang with his nearness. He slowly bent his head and grazed her lips with his own. “Kissing you takes my breath away,” he muttered.

I love how you described her heart which "took off in a mad gallop".
This was a true "sweet" sample.

I love his last line: "Kissing you takes my breath away."

I'll be looking for this one on Friday. Happy release day!
