Destiny Bay Romances-The Sweet Editions

These are basically the same stories that are found in Destiny Bay Romances- Forever Yours, but with the conflicts softened a bit, the language cleaned up, and no explicit love scenes. There are still a few adult situations, but they’re muted. Consider these the PG versions.

 

Excerpt

Jennifer was jumping out of airplanes again. It had been a week since she’d left Destiny Bay on the run. She hadn’t heard a word from Reid. She was up in a rickety little plane, about to jump out into the void.

“Lookin’ good, baby,” Eddie called to her. “The second time is always better than the first.”

“Bound to be,” she agreed, smiling brightly, waiting for fear. It hadn’t come and she missed it. She was still cold inside, as cold as she’d been that day on the beach. She wanted so badly for something to shatter the ice. Maybe this would do it.

The order came. “Go!”

She stepped back away from the wing and reached for the rip cord, which she was to pull on her own because this time it was a “clear and pull.” Her fingers found the cord as she fell, a comet heading toward earth. She enjoyed the sensation for a moment more, then pulled the rip cord to activate her main parachute. She pulled. And pulled again. Nothing happened.

She didn’t really panic. A strange, white blankness came over her. Her mouth opened in a silent scream, and she tried to think carefully, logically, all the while the earth was rushing toward her as though she were in a jet plane aimed into the side of a mountain.

The reserve. It was packed across her stomach. It had to work. If she could only remember how to pull it open. Her fingers fumbled, and fumbled again. They seemed numb. She couldn’t tell what she was touching.

She felt something. She didn’t know what it was, but she knew this was taking too long. If she didn’t act fast, she wouldn’t have time to pull anything at all, and if that happened, nothing could save her. She curled her fingers around the metal handle and tugged. In a rush that sent pure joy arcing through her, the reserve parachute shot out and filled with air, jerking her to a sharp stop before letting her float gently back to earth. And when she landed, she sprang to her feet and smiled as though nothing had happened:

“Jennifer, wow, you were fantastic! What happened up there? What did it feel like?”

The voices jumbled around her in a blur of color and noise. She felt numb, confused.

“I’m okay,” she mumbled. “Really, I’m okay.”

But she was still so cold. She looked around blankly, looking for something—or someone—and not knowing exactly what that might be. But there was a huge emptiness inside her. She needed—what? She wasn’t sure, but the need was aching.

Then she knew, because suddenly Reid was there, and his arms were coming around her and she was crying out his name and reaching for him. He held her so tightly, so very tightly, she could finally relax and let the warmth seep back into her body.

“Oh, Reid,” she murmured, tears rimming her eyes though something held back the flow, as it always did.
