Synopsis

Dec-29My Papai always said wine made everything better. Countless times he uttered those familiar words to me— “The Merlot will melt your problems away meu amor. With a good bottle of wine in your hand, you hold the magical key to anything you want.”

I believed my father whole heartily, until my world came crashing down on me at twenty-four years old.

It wasn’t going to take wine to help Brody and I find our way back to one another. It was going to take fighting … not only for our love—

But for my life.

Excerpt

My body jumped when Brody reached down and took my hands into his. “Dance with me, sweetheart.”

My heart leapt into my throat as I struggled to find my voice. My lips parted slightly as my eyes stared into his.

“There isn’t any music.”

Brody lifted an eyebrow and right then the music began playing. Tears built in my eyes as I realized what song it was. With a soft tug, Brody pulled me against his body as I listened to Lady Antebellum’s “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” while we slowly danced.

As I pressed my lips tightly together, I fought to keep from crying as the words of the song filled my head.

Brody placed his hand on my lower back and brought me in closer to him. The rest of the world disappeared and it was just the two of us. Pulling my head back, I gazed into his eyes. His thumb gently wiped my tears away as he looked at me with so much love.

“You’re so beautiful. I love you so much.”

A sob pushed past my lips as my throat tightened as my voice cracked. “Brody, I want to leave.”

You couldn’t mistake the look in his eyes as his mouth parted open. I was positive it matched my own. Lifting me into his arms, Brody carried me as he made his way away from everyone and started toward the house.

Burying my head into his chest, I attempted to calm my heartbeat down. I wanted this. I needed this.

It was time to move on and put the past where it belonged.

In the past.

About Kelly

Kelly Elliott is married to a wonderful Texas cowboy who has a knack for making her laugh almost daily and supports her crazy ideas and dreams for some unknown reason…he claims it’s because he loves her! She’s also a mom to an amazing daughter who is constantly asking for something to eat while her fingers move like mad on her cell phone sending out what is sure to be another very important text message. In her spare time she loves to sit in her small corner overlooking the Texas hill country and write. One of her favorite things to do is go for hikes around her property with Gus….her chocolate lab and the other man in her life, and Rose, her golden retriever. When Kelly is not outside helping the hubby haul brush, move rocks or whatever fun chore he has in store for her that day, you’ll find her inside reading, writing or watching HGTV.
