…Booker sat astride the seat. Instead of the padded chair back, her body rested on his broad chest.

He leaned around her with questioning eyes.

Her actions spoke louder than any words. Erika grooved her shoulders into the semi-circle of his arms. Booker responded by blending his fingers into hers, which rested on her stomach. She sighed in contentment.

“Comfy?” He nestled his chin in her hair.

“As a cool breeze on a hot summer’s day.”


Booker lay back, angling her into a deeper recline. Each breath he took lulled Erika into profound relaxation. The scent of roses was like a spa aromatherapy session. Adding to the attack on her senses was the soothing sound of the bubbling water feature. Positively in her element, Erika drifted off to sleep.


Booker inhaled Erika into his system. She felt so soft and pliable as she snuggled into him. The baby she carried, his baby, provided him proof of life. How she slept through the jumping jacks going on inside her astounded him. Yet, she did. He would cherish this intimate moment forever.

“Booker?” His parents showed up in the doorway.

He silenced them with a finger to his lips. June blew him a kiss as Trace steered her out of sight with an expression that confirmed the acceptance of his decision to pursue Erika. Fulfillment rippled the blood flowing in Booker’s veins. His heart lurched. “Don’t mess this up.”


Well, will the Bayou Cowboy’s affections corral the Skeptical Surrogate’s love?
