Happy Sunday everybody. :) Once again, I’m picking up from where I left off last week, which you can read here.
“Hi, Colt.” She flashed a smile that didn’t match the nervous edge in her gaze.
God, she had to be the best thing he’d seen in a long damn time. Soft and feminine without being brazen, her yellow dress did nothing but showcase her willowy body and long graceful limbs. Honey blonde hair he distinctly remembered falling to somewhere around the middle of her back was now up in a thick ponytail. The hairstyle gave him a view of her long, slender neck. He ached to bury his mouth there, to taste her skin again.
He folded his arms across his chest, lest his hands gain a mind of their own and reach out to her.
I know it’s cruel to stop there, but it makes for a better excerpt next week. ;) I'll be continuing from where I left off, sharing 8 sentences from the opening each week until release day (March 16). I hope you’ll join me.

Blurb for Her Soldier's Touch:
Experience has taught single mother Rachel Madison that the only person she can truly rely on is herself. But what she wants most in the world—to give her son the life she never had growing up—means she must put her faith in a man who once walked out on her.
Retired from the service, U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Colten Taylor makes a detour to Phoenix to bury his brother. Nobody is more surprised than he is to see Rachel waiting for him at the airport. He regrets the morning he walked away from her, but coming from an abusive home taught Colt to put limits on all his relationships—especially this one.
So when he discovers he has a son, Colt knows this is a chance to prove to himself he’s not a chip off the old block. Turning his life around doesn’t come naturally, though. Then a drug dealer crops up from his brother’s dark past, threatening their son and forcing Colt and Rachel to face their demons … and each other.
