Daniel can’t seem to catch a break; just as his life starts improving, he’s attacked by an unknown assailant. With his life now in jeopardy, can the fledgling relationship survive or will everything he cherishes be lost?

Romantic Series, Book 2
By Blake Allwood
Joseph flipped through the photos, almost unaware that I was with him. Suddenly he stopped flipping and said, “Oh, now this is interesting. This is what appears to be a marmot, an Olympic marmot, to be precise.” He turned toward me, a light in his eyes that hadn’t been there before.
“These are found only in this part of the world.” He was so wrapped up in what he was showing me that I don’t think he realized just how close he was sitting or how close his face was to mine. Trying not to make something out of nothing, I looked intently at the marmot, which incidentally looked like a cross between a beaver and squirrel. I tried to wait until Joseph moved away.
My God, he smelled like the woods. We were in the woods, and he smelled more like a forest than the forest did. I had to stop it. Maybe I should have faked being in pain so I could stop it before I embarrassed myself, again!
Joseph looked over at me.
“Did you know there are several species that live everywhere else in Washington state but here? There are also a few species that only live here… can only live here.”
Then his expression changed, and with the coolest movement, he leaned the extra few inches between us and kissed me. Just as soon as it started, it ended, leaving me a little lost. When he pulled away, he smiled.
