More About Bayou Beckons ~

Please meet Jared Richardson:

Swinging his legs around and planting his feet on the ground, Jared sat up. The cool cement floor didn’t cool his ardor. He raked his fingers through his hair. Any thought of Camilla and his gut churned with a deep gnawing ache, something Tums or Rolaids couldn’t cure.

Please meet Camilla Lind:

Camilla wished for a day better than yesterday. One that included a few moments with Jared. A private good-bye to a man who gave her the gift of making her feel feminine and ladylike. Yet her resolve to look but never touch tightened like a cinching rope around her heart. There could be no more kisses. She had to remain strong. In her mind, a crack of a whip flicked near her ear as a warning—do not kiss the man again, let alone think of hokey-pokey or hanky-panky with him, ever!
