I decided to follow the theme of my last post which was about a friend’s romantic book collection and share with you a scene from my WIP novel which includes the song, “When I Fall In Love” by Johnny Mathis. My protagonist’s husband can be quite the romantic. Enjoy the song while you read the scene…
“Sweetheart, I’m sorry I got on your case and flew off the handle. I’m just concerned. You’re absolutely right, I don’t know what you saw. Just because I didn’t see it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.” Tom eluded to one of Maddie’s favourite quotes from her college years. “I’ll pour the wine; you slip into something very comfortable and I’ll meet you in front of the TV. Do you have a preference what to watch?”
“No, you choose tonight, dear.” And with that, Maddie sighed with relief and headed for the bedroom.
She was about to unzip her dress when Tom appeared in the doorway holding two half-filled glasses and a large bottle of Frisky Beaver wine.
“Let me get that for you,” he grinned with that schoolboy look in his eye he always got when he had more than wine and a movie on his mind.
Tom placed the wine and the glasses on the table beside the bed and started the music playing, “When I Fall In Love” by Johnny Mathis.
“Do you remember our wedding night, Mrs. Hardwick?”
“I think I could be persuaded, Mr. Hardwick.” Slowly, he began unzipping her dress…
Sorry, I had to stop there or I’d need to rate my blog PG!
This is my last Book Bite for my novel. I’m hoping to get it edited soon with a release date mid-summer. I’ll be adding this song to the playlist. I’m blessed to be able to work from home at something that’s more pleasure than work and I’m my own publisher through Amazon.
Til next time — stay safe and be well in these trying times and remember –You are loved by the One who created you in His image.
