Hey, romance addicts! Today, I am sharing passage from Amber Daulton’s new romantic suspense Arresting Jeremiah. Enjoy the back and forth between the main characters Jeremiah and Calista.
He patted his belt, then frowned and looked down. “I forgot. I feel naked without my firearm.”
He’d stored the holstered pistol in the glove box after arriving at the fairgrounds.
“I’m sure you do. You wear it all the time, even at home.”
“Just a precaution.” He smiled as she walked her fingers across his warm, lightly tanned arm, bypassing a bruise. “Open carry is illegal in this state, so I couldn’t bring mine here with the way I’m dressed. It’s too damn hot to wear a blazer.”
“As long as you keep your firearms away from Lacey, I don’t mind if they’re in the house. I had a long talk with her about gun safety the other night, and she knows not to mess with them.” Calista tightened her fallen ponytail. The sun blazed, threatening to melt everything on the ground, including her. “I can’t believe it’s so hot. What time is it?”
Jim checked his watch. “Around six. Things should cool off by nightfall.”
“Too bad there aren’t any water rides. I would try to bribe the carnie to let us go again and again without getting back in line.”
“No way. Mia did that when she was a teenager. She’d flirt and ride for free. Too many of those guys thought a free entry or one with no wait meant they could get into her pants.” He tilted up Calista’s chin with his fingers. “I’m not in the mood to get into a fight tonight.”
“Ah, my knight in shining armor.”
“Damn right. If only the fair offered a romantic boat ride, I could get you alone for a few minutes. We would sail down the tunnel without a care in the world.”
“We wouldn’t come off that ride fully clothed.”
He chuckled and kissed her. “Your bra would be at the bottom of the stream. I guarantee it.”
