She did her best to blend in, walking around, drink in hand. Then she saw Holly. This time she wasn’t letting her get away, so she locked in on her.
Arching her eyebrow, Holly said, “So you’re back, I see. How would you like to go do something bad?”
Jackie felt her heart race like she was running a marathon. Her nipples hardened and her insides quivered. Smiling, she replied, “What did you have in mind?”
“Whatever you’d like.”
Jackie led her to the pool house. She imagined feeling the warmth of the woman’s smooth naked skin against hers.
They slipped into the darkness. The glow of the full moon provided their only light. Closing the door, Holly was suddenly all over her. “Are you ready for the ride of your life?” Holly asked.
Jackie barely got, “Oh, yes” out of her mouth when Holly’s mouth was upon hers. She worked her tongue into Jackie’s mouth and their tongues danced. Reaching behind Jackie, she unzipped her dress and gently moved it over her shoulders. It fell to the floor and Jackie kicked it away.
What Others are Saying:
I love reading and I especially love reading books where I am instantly captured by the characters and their storyline. I love that feeling of becoming one of the characters and I “fall in” the story and I am right there along-side them. That is what I encountered in this book. ~ Sylvia T. Santos
What I found fascinating is how this woman can be developing her spiritual side but still be so oblivious to her problems. This makes an interesting character study. I did like the ending, which answered some questions for me and left me feeling hopeful. ~ KLH

She also has work experience in Architectural design. She likes the creativity of this field, but her passion lies in writing.
Lynn started writing several years ago after she watched a documentary on the life of the 20th-century writer Willa Cather. At the same time, she experienced a loss that encouraged her to take this direction. After writing the initial outline and first draft, the author embraced a new awareness that changed the path of her life. The trials of Lynn’s life have only served as stepping stones to a brighter outlook and a stronger spirit.
