Watching Fireflies by Jaycee Ford


Jordan Hawthorne thought she had it all until a surprise for her fiancé turns into losing everything that she ever wanted. She flees her home in Charlotte, North Carolina to take a new job in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and make a new start where her ex-fiancé can’t find her.

Tom McCloud never had time for a serious commitment, always too busy with running his grandparents’ farm. Everything changes when he stumbles upon a broken-hearted city girl and a steamy buzz ignites between them. But what happens when the city girl can’t stay hidden in the country for long?




His charming smile lit up his face, making my knees almost turn to jelly. “It was my pleasure.”

He backed away to head downstairs when an uncontrollable urge came over me. I no longer hesitated. I didn’t want him to go. As soon as he took the first step down the stairs, I asked, “Would you like come in for a beer or something?”

He paused, his head turning back toward me. His cheeks twitched like he was trying to contain a smile, but with his face still gleaming, he answered, “Yes, I would like that a lot.”

Tom brushed passed me as I held open the door for him, and I could smell a hint of sun and something else I couldn’t describe. Maybe it was the scent of a cowboy. With the scent lingering and my body completely tingling, I walked to the mini fridge encased inside a wooden cabinet underneath the flat screen, and I grabbed two bottles of beer.

“Is light okay? That’s all I have in my fridge.”

As I turned around, my clutched fists landed against his ripped, rock hard abs. My eyes leveled just above his chest and I bit the inside of my lip. I dragged my gaze up to his piercing blue eyes, and I forgot to breathe.

“Jordan …”

His hand caressed my cheek while his gaze flickered between my eyes and my lips. My heart fluttered as it drummed an anxiously hopeful beat. What was happening between us was inevitable, and there was no stopping the inevitable. Our breath intertwined just as his lips brushed against mine. My body almost lost all will to function as it hummed with need. His eyes found mine again as if seeking permission to continue. I wasn’t about to stop him. He leaned into me once again. I responded with a passion, a hunger.

My arms wrapped around his neck, dropping the bottles of beer onto the rug-covered floor. He pulled me flush against his body, and my fingers instinctively laced through his brown hair. My tongue swept against his lower lip; his gently massaged mine. The arms that wrapped around me engulfed me in a heaven that I never wanted to leave. My inner desires pooled within as a moan rose up, but I didn’t know if it came from him or me.

As much as I didn’t want to, I broke the kiss, and as we both inhaled deeply, he rested his forehead against mine and whispered, “Did you feel that?”

My body strummed with desire as my heart thumped an erratic beat. I exhaled slowly as my eyes remained closed, and I whispered, “Yes.”

His lips skimmed across mine again while his hands slid around to my hips. As we ended our kiss, my eyes flickered open to find his full and bright. His mouth fought against a smile, but his cheeks quirked, giving him away. As the smile finally eased up his cheeks, he asked in a whisper, “Will you have dinner with me?”
