Excerpt from Falling for You:
“I guess it was always so easy to read you. Too bad I’m an idiot and never did anything about it.” His gaze fell away, and a few moments passed as he perused his dinner choices.
Darci peeked over the top of her menu. She loved the furrow of his brow when he thought.
The corners of his eyes crinkled. She’d been caught. Even though most of his face was hidden, he was grinning.
She turned her eyes down. “Stop staring at me. You’re making me nervous.” Her words were little more than a whisper.
“I’m making you nervous? I feel like I’m being watched,” he answered in an equally quiet voice, leaning closer.
The smell of his shampoo caught her nose and her stomach clenched. This is what things should have been like with her ex. She’d never gone weak in the knees from the sheer scent of Rich.
She swallowed and met his eyes. “Yes?”
“Do you mind not looking at me like that until after dinner? I had my heart set on steak.”
She gulped in air and hiccupped.
Michelle’s imagination started spilling out onto paper the second she could scribble. Her drawing never improved, but her love affair with words continued and evolved as she became infatuated with one story after another. If life could be written, Michelle would write everyone’s ending as a happily ever after.
Michelle grew up in Chicago and later moved to Colorado. Her husband still makes fun of her Midwest accent. By day, she is an engineer, wife, and mother to two kids and two dogs. Her sanity survives on the pages she writes, even if her toddler is trying to drive her to the edge one temper tantrum at a time.
