JOURNEY TO HER DREAMS was re-released early August and
 has enjoyed another full edit and an awesome new cover.

Here's another little snippet.

THANK YOU

 ~~Today's snippet is a bit longer, but I wanted to add the whole dream sequence
 otherwise it might be too confusing.~~


“Please don’t,” she begged as her body was trembling, almost shaking. She stared blindly at the windows, trying hard not to sob, as her throat tightened with each of his touches.
“Come on. Don’t be like that,” he replied, moving his lips past her ear and down her neck. His hand slid down her body and under her shirt.
“Please stop. I’m awfully tired.”
He stared at her and his mouth twitched. “Sweetheart, you’re always tired.”
Her efforts to push him away were ineffective. His tight grip around her waist didn’t give her much room to move out of his arms. She was helpless, as the more she denied him, the more relentless he became. She felt his hand in her hair at the back of her neck and he moved his head closer to hers. It sent shivers down her spine.
“I love you, sweetheart,” he said under his breath.
She could barely speak and her words sounded throaty. “Please,” she whispered, nearly sobbing. “Please don’t.”
He lowered his head, and she assumed that he would whisper something in her ear. She knew she was fighting in vain when he trailed caressing kisses along her neck with his mouth; he wouldn’t listen. With his body against hers, his breathing against her neck became heavier and stronger. Turning her head away from him, she closed her eyes and did her best to ignore the pain with each movement.
When she heard him under the shower, she slowly went into the guest room down the hallway, took a little teddy bear out of the bottom drawer in the cupboard, and sat on the bed. She cradled her friend as the tears streamed down her face.
Please, someone help me, please, she sobbed. Please, someone.
She heard him coming towards the room, and quickly wiped her face with a tissue and carefully placed her little teddy bear back into the rear of the drawer underneath her pink and yellow baby blanket.
“How about I prepare us a nice dinner?” he asked with contentment.
Her faint smile held a touch of sadness and pain. It was just as painful on her lips as what had just happened between them. Yet still she smiled. “Sounds good,” was all she was able to whisper.


Hollie woke up in a sweat—as usual. Her breathing was deep and fast as she cried and her body ached. What was this? Why did she keep dreaming of this woman? And who on earth was she?

  1. Wow that was so intense, I had no idea it was a dream until the end came. I think Hollie might also want to know who the man is because he doesn't seem too nice.
