Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from the second in my Love Projects series, TAKING COURAGE.

LAST WEEK: Janna asked Simon for a fresh start. When he didn’t respond, Janna turned to leave his office. Simon stopped her by stepping in behind her and pressing the door closed. THIS WEEK: I’ve skipped nothing. 🙂

Her hips swirled over him, and he pressed her against the door. A moan escaped her, and then he was gone. She remained plastered against the door, afraid to move, not wanting to admit the moment was over. She peered over her shoulder and found him pacing the back corner of his office.

He couldn’t have gotten any further away.

“Do I need to apologize again?” She slowly turned around to face him and pressed her body into the door. A part of her wished the door would swallow her whole.

They’re on the edge of moving forward. Can you feel it? I know how it all works out and so can you. Pick up your own copy of TAKING COURAGE and find out everything today.

Janna’s ready to make over her life and get out from under the controlling thumb of her father. She doesn’t want another failed arranged marriage. She’s ready to do whatever it takes for the career she wants, enter the lifestyle she craves, and to earn the trust and love of the man that has captured her heart, but heartbreak and career hiccups seem to be her destiny.

Simon’s still recovering after his last submissive lied her way into his life. He’s not ready for Janna and how she pushes against his prejudices. He needs to decide if he’s willing to lose her or if he’ll fight for her love and submission.

  1. Let’s rewind and have him pressing her against the door again. That’s much less awkward and uncomfortable for her. lol. Great excerpt! You capture her emotions perfectly. 🙂

  2. I liked his reluctance when he found out he’d be working with her. Of course, his reluctance didn’t last long. LOL. I liked the way she went after what she wanted out of life. Good book SJ.
