Vexed, he hit the dimmer switch. Accent lights flushed over the nearly nude image. Standing in the doorway, he yearned to enter the room. If he did, he’d learn more about her. But if he did, he’d be invading her privacy.

His eyes trained the room. A treadmill, stationary bike, weight machine, and television anchored the corners. A drawing board sat in the space that cantilevered past the exterior wall. Ben’s artwork hung on its sidewalls and drawing supplies lined the edge of the tabletop.

He wondered what he’d done to cause her to get a rash, why she’d removed Ben’s hand from the keyless entry pad, and why she’d wanted every outside light on in this safe neighborhood. Jon had warned him to take it slow. Now he yearned to know why.

About Faye Lynn

Barefoot and Breathless is a contemporary romance, chick-lit, women's fiction novel about a single mother looking for love, dealing with her son's growing independence, overcoming a past abusive relationship, trying to stay true to her morals, and teaching in a public at-risk school. It's a light, fun read with a writing style of Rachel Gibson meets Janet Evanovich. Like the heroine in Barefoot and Breathless, I'm a teacher, yogi, and single mother. I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and I look forward to reading your comments. Carpe Diem, Faye Lynn
