Margaret says: Without romance the world would be a sad and lonely place.
A ROSE IN NO-MAN’S LAND – MARGARET TANNER
“My lovely Amy. I have nothing to offer. The first time we met, you were like a ray of sunshine brightening up my dull, jaded existence. The more I saw of you, the bigger the danger you posed to my peace of mind—that’s why I treated you harshly. I’ve fought my feelings for you,” he went on passionately. “Kept telling myself it was only lust I felt, but—my God! A man going to war shouldn’t tempt fate by lying to himself.”
He pulled her into his arms and held her close for a moment, then lowered his head, as if he couldn’t help himself. “Open your mouth, my lovely girl,” he whispered. “I want to sleep tonight with the taste of your lips on mine.”
Her arms slipped around his neck.
He feathered tiny kisses all over her face, until their lips finally clung together for one heart-stopping, sweet moment.
