The House at Homecoming Cove
by Ginny Baird
THE HOUSE AT HOMECOMING COVE
Seeking out solitude in which to work, New York City music composer Melissa Carter rents a century-old farmhouse on the Virginia Eastern Shore. There, she meets a loner with rugged good looks and smoldering gray eyes, who has long-term ties to the property. When strange things start occurring at the historic home, the handsome groundskeeper comes to her aid, but is Melissa really safer in his arms?
When Stone Thomas meets a pretty northerner with a musical gift, he's immediately drawn to her. He's also determined to protect her from the increasingly odd happenings at the fifty-acre farm where he's employed. Soon, Stone finds himself wondering whether he and beautiful Melissa might share a future. Yet the secrets of Homecoming Cove threaten to drive them apart.

Her words came out in a whisper. “Thank you for everything. For coming to my rescue, for…” She was saying goodbye, yet her chin tilted toward his and she took a step closer, her lips barely parted, inviting. She peered up at him and met his gaze with a look that was surprisingly heated, decidedly predatory. There was no mistaking it. Melissa wanted him too. That was all the encouragement Stone needed to take her in his arms and bring his mouth down on hers with a hungry desire that surpassed all expectations.
Melissa gasped with delight and sighed into his kiss. Stone’s empty mug slid from her grasp and landed somewhere on the sofa. Stone pressed his eager body to hers and ran his hands up her back, threading his fingers through her hair. She was glorious, beautiful, her gaze sparking with reciprocal passion. Stone groaned and kissed her again, savoring the taste of her, delighting in the sweetness of her body molded to his, as his blood pumped harder and his heart beat like a kettledrum gone out of control. It was more than a kiss; it was like coming home.
“Stone,” she said breathlessly. He opened his eyes to find his cheeks nestled between her palms.
She looked up at him her face flushed with longing. “I think you’d better go.”
“Yeah,” he said, his pulse pounding. “I’d better go.”
Thunder boomed and rain slapped the windowpanes, while the fire hissed and moaned.
Neither one moved.
“Melissa,” Stone whispered, brushing his lips over hers. “You and me… It’s like… I don’t know.”
“I know,” she replied, meeting his kiss. “I feel it too.”

I love that you write about single woman. I love their stories.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Misty! I suppose that's because I experienced being single in two different ways in my lifetime. First, as a young woman and then later as a single mom. I love stories about strong women too. It's awesome to see them facing challenges -- and falling in love! <3Delete
Thanks for hosting!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for hosting me on your lovely blog today! Unfortunately, I'm embarrassed to say, the tour company provided the wrong excerpt for you to post. This is an *unedited* sample I submitted as a place holder when I booked the tour. The final excerpt I submitted to the company (but which is not posted here) was supposed to run with this blog today. Please accept my deepest apologies, as I take great care with my work and have an excellent team of editors in place. Rest assured, the final product is very well polished. Thank you again for your support. ~ GinnyReplyDelete
