New Jersey Romance Writer’s annual “Put Your Heart in a Book” Conference is a little over a month away! To help share our excitement, we’ll shine the spotlight on one of our Golden Leaf finalists each day leading up to the conference.
The Golden Leaf is awarded annually for excellence in romance fiction by authors who are NJRW members or in Romance Writers of America (RWA) Region One. Winners will be announced during the NJRW Put Your Heart in a Book Conference award ceremony on October 16, 2015.
Spotlight on Novella: “One Little Kiss,” by Robin Covington (Burning Up the Sheets, LLC)
“So I guess we’re sharing a bed,” she observes. “I can be a big kid about it if you can.”
I huff out a laugh of sorts at her words. A few months ago and I might have been quick to agree with her but after New Year’s Eve, denying the feelings I have for Leighton is impossible. I’m not even touching her but the knowledge that she is so close, the smell of her rose perfume and the sharp metallic edge of the snow and cold on her hair puts me on edge.
“I promise to keep all my boy parts away from your girl parts,” I say, trying to keep it light. I didn’t miss the carnal equivalent to electroshock therapy that happened when we touched back at the terminal. I want this girl. I have always wanted this girl.
But once again our timing sucks.
