Snippet Saturday – Author’s Choice

How about just the briefest of glimpses of Adrian and Gillian’s wedding from TART?

USA Today bestselling author Lauren Dane serves up a sweet, sensual, and hot-to-the-touch novel in which one woman’s most intimate desires are stirred by two very special ingredients

Juliet Lamprey is having the time of her life running her successful bakery, TART, when Gideon Carter comes back into her life. Returning home to help his grandfather run the family on the farm, Gideon is back for good. When they meet again, the spark between them is immediate, and it isn’t long before the former childhood friends play catch up in bed.

That’s not good news for local lawyer Cal Whaley. Though the sexually open but strictly monogamous Cal has loved Jules for a long time, he’s hardly ever taken it further than friendship. When he sees her start to fall for Gideon, he knows he has to make his move or risk losing her forever.

Who would have anticipated that all three of them would connect on such an intimate level? The trio’s scalding liaisons take them places they’ve never dreamed. But such an intensely passionate and unusual relationship comes with equally as complicated emotions, and when Jules must suddenly leave town, she wonders if she’ll have a choice to make when she returns

Jules stepped back to look Gillian up and down. “You’re gorgeous. Oh my god.” The emotion swept through her and she found herself fighting tears.

Gillian’s eyes widened. “Don’t you cry! I can’t take it if you do. I’ll cry too and my makeup will smudge.”

“Don’t ruin my work!” Raven called out as she finished the finishing touches on Erin’s face.

Gillian’s dress was a gift from all her friends. Much like its wearer, it was classically beautiful. Elegant. Spaghetti straps with a lovely bit of beading on the bodice. The material seemed to float around her as she moved. A cathedral train so nothing too hard to manage. And in a nod to her place in life, instead of white, she went with a pale green instead.

Her long, dark hair had been pinned up with roses tucked at the back. Instead of a bouquet, she’d opted for a single rose.

“I look all right then?”

Jules nodded. “Gillian, I’ve never seen you more beautiful. Adrian’s socks will be knocked off.”

Gillian smiled. “This dress makes me feel like a fairy princess.”

“You totally are.”

The day that’d started off perfect had continued that way. She really couldn’t have asked for a better one for Gillian. There was a breeze and the sun had been out all day so it was still plenty warm without being too hot. The water glittered off in the distance. Music drifted up the stairs from the front lawn where the ceremony would be held.

Jules took a deep breath. “Are you ready? I’ll go tell everyone if you are.”
