If I Return by Sawyer Bennett

Would you wait?

College student, Hope Camden, is relentlessly serious, awkwardly shy and in complete need of taking a walk on the wilder side. At least, that’s what her sister tells her when she drags her off` for an impromptu Christmas getaway in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Hope’s plans to keep her nose in a book the entire vacation are thwarted when she meets Jack Freeman, the gorgeous and enigmatic Army helicopter pilot staying at the same resort. What was supposed to be a quiet Christmas holiday turns into a life changing event for Hope and Jack. The only problem? Jack is headed off to war, and there is no guarantee he will come back.

You can buy this book or any of the 12 NA’s of Christmas titles on Amazon.

Excerpt

“So, what exactly is your level of snow experience, Miss Camden?”

I look up at Jack as we are walking, his hand tightly gripping mine. The sun is brilliantly shining and his eyes are sparkling sapphires today. “Sadly, I’m a snow virgin. This is my first time.”

He stops walking and just looks at me with astonishment. “You’re kidding?”

“Nope. We don’t get snow in Florida, in case you haven’t heard that news flash.”

He rolls his eyes at me. “Well, there are certain things that a snow virgin has to try, and I list these in no particular order. Let’s see… there’s making snow angels, and we have to build a snowman, and of course, who can resist a good old-fashioned, snowball fight… and last, but certainly not least, you simply have to try this really cool trick of sticking your tongue to a flagpole.”

I start laughing and playfully punch him in the stomach. “I can’t believe you’d try to get me to fall for the ‘stick your tongue to a flagpole’ trick.”

He shrugs his shoulders and puts a mock look of shame on his face. “What? I thought a Florida girl wouldn’t know about that dirty trick.”

“We do have TVs in Florida, you know? I’ve seen A Christmas Story only about a million times.”

“Damn. Caught me. No matter. I have better uses for your tongue.” Jack steps in close to me and grabs hold of my hips. My breath comes out in a rush, pluming white in the cold air.

“You do?” I say, my voice shy and husky all at the same time. “Like what?”

“Well… I was holding out on you, but the actual very best thing to do in the snow is to kiss.” His head lowers toward mine but he just stares at me.

“You don’t say?”

I anticipate his lips touching mine but he doesn’t move. “It’s the truth. But before we do that, we have to make quick snow angels first.”

About Marquita Valentine:

New York Times Bestselling Author, Marquita Valentine, writes sexy heroes that make you swoon and sassy heroines that make you laugh. She’s the author of the bestselling contemporary romance series, Holland Springs, and the new adult romance series, Boys of the South.

Marquita met her husband aka Hot Builder at Sonic when they were in high school. She suggests this location to all of her single friends in search of a good man–and if that doesn’t work, they can console themselves with cheesy tatertots. She lives in North Carolina in a very, very small town with Hot Builder and their two children.

Excerpt

He dares to brush his thumb over my lower lip and I fight the urge to bite him. “Oh, I mean it, sweetheart. Unfortunately, this mature guy needs your permission to follow through.” “My what?” I croak. “Permission.” He lets go of me and steps back. My traitor of a body misses his touch, misses his kisses and warmth. I’m sick for feeling this way. There has to be something wrong with a girl that can manage to nurse a crush and a hatred for the boy who gave her the first real kiss of her life. “Without it, I’m just a bunch of words,” he says softly. “Words can repair or tear down,” I remind him. “True,” he agrees, nodding a little. “But imagine what actions combined with words can do.” Memories of that night hit me, like the bags of dirt and grass Charlie and her friends had thrown at me, had smashed into my face, my hair, and clothes. Filthy Slut! Whore! Stay the hell away from my boyfriend. Despite the first instinct to run, my limbs are frozen. They’re locked and bound by our shared past. “I don’t have to imagine. I already know.” His face pales a little, but his gaze never wavers. “So do I.”
