Here's the snippet. I love this scene especially because of the last line. It sums up Joshua's determination to mend their marriage. I hope you enjoy it.

The shock of the cold wind reminded her they were standing outside on the balcony. In a private corner surrounded by palm trees, they were not overlooked by other buildings, yet any of the servants could walk by and glance up.

He groaned, lifted his head, and leaned his forehead to hers.

“If we didn’t have to be somewhere today, I would’ve taken this to its natural conclusion this morning,” he said in a husky voice as he straightened her robe and tied the belt around her waist. “But know two things. We will conclude this, and I’m never going to let you go.”

I hope you enjoyed it. Leave me a comment. I love reading them.
If you're still undecided about this story, here are some of the reviews:
"OMG! I loved this book from start to finish... It's a definite page turner... You'll run the gamit of emotions with this read..." ~ Amazon reviewer.

"there was a fierce passion from the very first paragraph that just kept me reading." ~ Amazon reviewer

"I love that Joshua doesn't really understand the reasons that Christy has for wanting out of their marriage but is willing to go all out to save it. It has sexy scenes and is a reminder to us all that love can win, as long as we are willing to give it a chance." ~ Amazon reviewer

"This is a heartwarming and passionate tale of a marriage in trouble, and their struggle to find each other again." ~ Bestselling author, Doris O'Connor.
