About Moxie Girl Musings

Moxie Girl Musings is about starting over from square one after tragedy impacted my young family. It's filled with stories of triumph, struggle, snafus, hopes, and dreams. Sometimes there will be features from other writers that I like and every so often I'll include an original short story, but normally I simply write what's on my mind at the time. Welcome to my unfiltered true-life story as I figure out this thing called life. http://www.amberleaeaston.com

For the lovers, the dreamers, the wanderers... #ScintillatingSunday #Romance

Dream a little dream of me...
In Between responsibilities and dreams exist moments that make us believe in possibility
Excerpt of the contemporary romance novel, In Between, book one of the Dancing Barefoot series and currently on sale for .99 

Need pumped through her blood, not only for Jacques, but also for Italy to somehow set her free. She'd read all the self-help books, heard all the stories about being in control of her own decisions and her own life; but complications entangled her and bound her like a net holding down a struggling porpoise who slowly drowned beneath the waves. 

Once at their apartment building, she practically ran up the stairs, already thinking of the many ways she wanted to make love with him. Clothes came off once the door closed behind them until they were both skin-on-skin and mouth-to-mouth on the bed. Slower than last night, the kisses lingered and the caresses discovered. Her hands roamed the hardness of his back to the roundness of his ass and back again while their tongues danced together. Eyes wide open they looked at each other in the moonlight that played across their skin and over the bed. 
"Tell me you didn't stay in Florence because of me," she whispered against his lips.

"I stayed because of you. I do what I want. I want this, here and now."

Tears blurred her vision because she'd secretly hoped he had chosen to stay for her, but hadn't dared believe. "You don't know me." 

"I know you." He silenced the rest of her words with a kiss that curled her toes. 

"I don't want to be a speed bump in your life."

"Let it be, Jess. Let us be whatever we become...or not. Let it be."

From the back cover...

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.**
