"I'm not going to be able to say goodbye to you either," he whispered against her hair, his words sobering her. "You know that, don't you?"
She did know that. With a sigh, she twisted her head and kissed him, her hair tangling between their lips.
"Stay with me, Jessica. We can make it work," he whispered against her lips.
"Wrong time to ask me anything." She moved her hips with him still inside of her and grinned.
"Best time. Tell me that you'll stay, even if it's a lie." His fingers tangled in the strands of her hair that tossed in the wind.
"I'll stay," she said because she wanted it to be true. For this one minute of time she wanted it all—Jacques, his free lifestyle, embracing being an artist, his crazy friends, all of it.
He slipped himself from her, turned her around, and yanked her hard against his chest. "We can make this work, all you need to do is believe in us."
Oh, she believed in him. She'd seen him at work, witnessed his passion, knew he could accomplish anything he dreamed. That wasn't the problem, not even close.

In between responsibilities and dreams...
Jessica Moriarty has always played by the rules, but for once in her life, she's doing exactly as she pleases. In between graduate school and 'real life', she's in Florence, Italy, indulging her love of art and abandoning inhibitions.
Meeting Jacques Sinclair rocks her off center. Whereas rules and living up to expectations have dictated her life, he is the opposite. A rebel. A photographer. A man who lives for the moment. He sweeps her up into a riveting romance that makes her question all she's ever believed to be true.
The drum of old commitments echo through her heart as time ticks away. Will the crush of 'real life' undermine the love she's found in between...?
This is book one of the two part Dancing Barefoot series.
