Book Excerpt from The Howling Heart


Book Excerpt

We stopped walking, and I put my hand on his arm. His skin was warm and smooth to the touch with soft, fine hairs. I looked into his sad eyes and tried to convey as much empathy as I could.
"I'm so sorry. I wish that had never happened to you. I saw pictures of your mom in your room. She was beautiful, and she looked so happy. I wish I could've met her."
I smiled and glided my hand up his arm. I wanted to touch more of him, so I traveled up to his shoulder and over his pectoral. The muscles were lean and firm, and I felt them flex beneath my hand. My thumb strayed and brushed a sensitive nipple. It pebbled instantly, and Riley inhaled quickly and held my hand against his skin.
Our eyes locked—sapphire and emerald—and in that moment, we connected with one another. The death of a parent was something he and I shared, and I wanted him to know I could relate to him. Riley let me know he understood, and he slowly pulled my hand away so he could entwine our fingers.
He held my hand, and we walked in silence until we arrived at the forest's edge. He reached out with his free hand and pulled down a low tree branch.
"Do you want to walk further?"
He let the branch snap back but came away with a large, green leaf. His lips spread into a grin as he stepped toward me and brushed my cheek with it.
