Hello, folks, and welcome to another sexy snippet. Today, I'm going to introduce you to my upcoming novel, FOREST GIRL, (cover reveal coming soon, but here's a sneak peek), which takes us a few decades back in time to 1990s Ghana.
Here's the blurb to give you some background:
Esi Afriyie has been in love with Michael Yaw Badu since childhood. When he receives a scholarship to study in America, all hope seems lost ... until he returns to Ghana ten years later. An arranged marriage contracted by their families makes her dreams come true, but does the reality of being Mrs. Michael Badu live up to the fantasy?
Michael may have married Esi, but he is in love with someone else—Forest Girl, a mystery woman he encountered just once in the forest. His heart belongs to her, and he doesn't need his beautiful wife awakening his carnal desires. He is even willing to sacrifice his marriage for another encounter with Forest Girl.
Reality is not what either Esi or Michael imagined. Esi is disillusioned; Michael feels trapped.
Will Michael give in and allow his heart to discover a love that was always meant to be, before it's too late?
Today's snippet gives peek into a customary marriage ceremony. Michael and Esi have shared their first kiss and things aren't going the way the groom had planned.
Her father asked her if she would like him to accept the gifts, and her simple, “Yes,” snuck its way into his heart without warning.
Papa Afriyie took his daughter’s hand and presented her to Maame Badu, who stood up slowly and took Esi’s hand, accepting the bride as her daughter-in-law. The old woman then presented her to her son.
Michael took her, kissed her lips softly, and held her for a moment. When she looked up at him and smiled again, his kneecaps felt as if they had been hit with a sledgehammer. He released her quickly, an alarm sounding in his head. His lips had touched hers only slightly, but he’d enjoyed that little kiss entirely too much.
I hope you enjoyed this story. Please leave me a comment.
