A beautiful Cajun woman seeking penance for her children’s death, steps out of her shell and helps a bum.
Jewel puts ten years of therapy to use by playing good Samaritan one day. Overhearing the town boys talk about pulling a prank on the bum who pushes his shopping cart around town painting murals on the tired country stores, she decides to warn him.
At the rundown building where the bum seems to stay, she's shocked to be greeted with a clean shaven man wearing only jeans, a compelling smile, and endless sex appeal. Jewel is suddenly like a bumbling teenager with hormones she’d thought were destroyed by her abusive ex.
When Johnny meets Jewel and sees that her beauty is far more than skin deep, he can't resist answering the need so plain in her eyes. But surrendering to Johnny’s fiery love will mean releasing the guilt of her past sins that refuse to let her live.
The following teasers are rated PG-13 for language
I screamed and spun around to the deep voice just behind me, only to scream again and spin back the other way. Oh shit oh shit oh shit! Half naked man behind me!
"I should get a shirt on."
I choked out a gasp, horrified, Horrified that is was quite obvious to him how much he affected me, "Oh, pffft, not at all, you're fine," I said, making it clear that it was utterly unnecessary.
He grinned, "Well thank you."
"I meant, I'm fine, as in not bothered, it doesn't bother me, I see mean all the time like that around here, everybody goes around in the summer time with out shirts."
I kinda feel as though I should pat myself on the back for this one. Do you all know how hard it is to find teasers, well PG-13 rated teasers, in an erotic romance. *heehee*
