ACCEPTING THE FALL
by Meg Harding
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Confronting the past is never easy.
Cole Whitaker is happy. He has the job and boyfriend he always wanted. His heart’s in no danger of being broken, and he can’t ask for more from life. As a kindergarten teacher, he sees it all; however, one troublesome student has him reaching out to the parent, wanting to help. There’s something about Savanah that tugs at his heartstrings.
He never expected her father.
Zander Brooks hasn’t had an easy life, and he’s made some mistakes. Freshly retired from the military and working as a firefighter, Zander thought he’d left Cole in the rearview mirror. He’s not expecting him to appear in St. Petersburg, Florida, of all places, teaching his daughter’s kindergarten class. Suddenly, his biggest mistake is being shoved in his face.
This is Zander’s chance to close a door he’d never fully shut, but time with his former flame might change his mind.

Exclusive TEASER EXCERPT:The door shut, and Zander was there. Cole’s back was gently pressed to the surface, and Zander curled his hands around Cole’s waist, pressed his lips to Cole’s jaw. He nipped the skin he kissed, teasing with his tongue and grazing with his teeth—soft then rough. He didn’t keep his hands still either, he rubbed and massaged, digging his fingers into Cole’s back and sides.
Cole was turning to putty for Zander. Already he couldn’t catch his breath, and his knees were weak, threatening to buckle at any moment. He wasn’t worried, though. He knew Zander would catch him if his legs gave out. He wrapped his arms around Zander’s neck, fingers in the short curls of his hair, pushing, trying to get Zander to leave his jaw alone and move to his mouth. He wanted to kiss Zander. He wanted to feel the slick glide of their tongues together, a give and take that would match the rocking of their hips against one another.
But Zander had other plans, and he slid his hands onto Cole’s ass, lifting, and he picked him right up. Cole gasped, circling Zander’s waist with his legs and flushing hot on his neck and cheeks. Zander went from his jaw to his neck, tracing the spreading blush, sucking bruises with his lips and teeth.
Cole’s fingers had turned to claws on Zander’s back, and his head was reclined against the door, mouth open as he panted and tried to regain enough control to get the upper hand. He wanted a proper kiss and a bed to lie on. He wanted less clothes between them. His list of desires was rapidly growing. Could he have everything at once? That would be great.
“Zander. Zander. Zander.”
“Already chanting my name. Are you trying to stroke my ego?” The words were spoken against Cole’s collarbone, sending shivers down his spine as Zander’s breath ghosted over him.
