THE AMISH WEDDING PROMISE
SERIES: Hidden Springs #1
GENRE: Inspirational Contemporary / Amish Romance
RELEASE DATE: December 17, 2019
Could this bride’s wedding disaster be a blessing in disguise?
Grace Lantz always imagined her wedding day would be a blissfully happy occasion. But after a tornado swept through town, she finds herself relieved that the ceremony is delayed. After all, her groom-to-be hasn’t even bothered to check on her. Instead, it’s the handsome volunteer Zeke Bontrager who selflessly offers Grace his strong shoulders to lean on.
Zeke came to Hidden Springs to assist a community in need. He didn’t expect to meet his soul mate. Determined to ignore his feelings, Zeke promises to help reunite kind, beautiful Grace with her groom. But after spending time together, Grace confesses that she might not want to marry her fiancé after all. Can Zeke convince her that her true love is standing right in front of her? And can she find the courage to follow her heart?
“Danki. For being a friend.”
Oh, Lord have mercy, her lips were on his.
He handed his heart over in its entirety, tugged her more fully into his arms, and settled into her tentative…not tentative…
Oh, goodness, gracious…
His heart pounded, and he closed his eyes.
Her hands cupped his face, her fingers just reaching to tangle in his hair.
A kaleidoscope of colors burst, forming flares, rainbows, and stars.
He might not survive this assault on his senses.
He wasn’t sure he wanted to try.
He surrendered to the madness.
Grace was right. Kissing Zeke wasn’t good. It was great. Beyond great. Amazing.
His hands trembled against her back, pressing against her in what might be desperation, until she lost her balance and tumbled more fully into his arms.
Somehow, he scooted around until he leaned against Jon’s bed…
She gasped, sucking in air, and then plunged her fingers into Zeke’s soft, silky hair.
Zeke made some sort of sound deep in his throat and settled her against him, taking control of the kisses, taking them from whatever temperature they were to something beyond comprehension.
She made an answering moan, wrapped her arms around him, and held on for dear life.
This, this was better than anything she could ever imagine.
She was melting… melting… melting…
(and now we all are melting too!! ♥ )
