The Flower Box
Hot Ink Press

Alice longs for love. Oliver wants to give her flowers and candy until he thinks she has another lover. Will his jealousy drive him away from Alice or straight into her arms?
Read the tease

Alice opened her eyes. Dawn lightened the sky and that meant it was after six. She opened the shop on Saturday so would need to get up about seven. She felt Oliver lying alongside her in bed. He held her hand between them. Alice closed her eyes to drift in the memory of making love with him. They’d talked, but not for long. The way he’d made love with her touched her heart right then. Tenderness and hot sex mixed up half the night with Oliver finally holding her close to sleep. The question of if she’d see him again fell painfully into her mind. She wanted to so much it made her scrunch her eyes up tight and wish for it. Maybe she’d scrunched his hand in hers too, because Oliver woke up.

He moved his hand to turn onto his side and snuggle against her. He kissed her cheek and then her ear.

His whisper gave her goose bumps.

“I know you’re awake. I thought you were about to break my fingers.” He laughed softly and then bit her earlobe gently.

His kiss down her neck sent the goose bumps wild. Alice turned to hold him.

“Sorry.” She kissed his enticing lips.

Oliver smiled against her mouth. “Do you have to go to work? He didn’t wait for an answer, just took handfuls of her hair, and held her head to kiss her again.

Alice traced her fingertips over his waist and hips. His kiss was soft and teasing. She knew if she didn’t move away and get up she’d be late. Joyce would arrive at the shop. It wouldn’t be fair on Saturday morning to let her deal with everything.
