She’s 53. He’s 46. Your point is?
Vivacious Niyana Nichols isn’t looking for love. Between the demands of work as a Wellness Clinic Administrator, recent widowhood, and being there for her two beautiful daughters, love has taken a back seat for the fifty-three-year-old. To complicate matters, she’s also suffering from Alopecia. Yet, when Niyana meets her daughter’s handsome professor, she is faced with emotions she thought she’d buried with her husband.
Divorced single father and African-American Studies professor, Omari Josef, is devoted to his career. When the forty-six-year-old grandfather meets the gorgeous and spirited Niyana, he’s forced to rethink his own happiness. Their age difference doesn’t matter to him. What does is making sure she realizes that she’s a woman worth cherishing. Will the sudden reappearance of Omari’s ex-wife wreak havoc in his life? Or will their undeniable attraction grow into something solid and abiding?
SNEAK PEEK INTO THIS TIME ALWAYS
Hey Readers, meet Niyana & Omari from the new novel This Time Always by Suzette D. Harrison!
Lifting his head out of the water, he glanced in her direction. “Niy.”
“If you fall asleep I’m not carrying you. I will leave you there.”
Her drowsy smile was her only response.
He flicked water at her. “‘Ey, wake up.”
“No, and leave me alone.”
Scooping a handful of water, he mischievously tossed it.
“God of Zion, please get this man.”
He repeated the torment.
“Sir, I’ma need you to quit.”
“Not until you dip a toe in.” True to his threat, he played the role of pest, splashing her and smack-talking until she finally vacated the chaise and stomped towards him.
Lifting the hem of the spaghetti strap maxi dress flowing about her sensuous frame, she grudgingly complied with his wishes. “There. Happy?”
“Maybe.” Standing in the shallows, he grabbed her ankle before she could turn away.
“Come on, baby, sit with me.”
She stood a moment faux-glaring before advising, “Five seconds and I’m finished.”
“Fair.” He offered a stabilizing hand as she lowered herself to the pool’s edge. “How’d you get wet?” He feigned innocence.
She tucked her dress about her thighs with a smile. “This pool has obviously gotten to you.”
“Maybe it’s you.” Hands at her waist, he granted her a kiss that was sweet, quick before latching his legs about her and floating onto his back again, keeping his ears above water in order to hear. “Enjoy the day?”
“The day. Tonight. Dinner. Maestro Marsalis and that jazz. Absolutely, and yes. But I’m especially appreciating my Dr. Delicious in these swim trunks.”
His laugh caught in his throat, his abdominal muscles quivered as she slowly ran pedicured and polished toes up and down his naked torso.
“I’ll like these trunks even more when they’re off.”
He lifted his head and stared long and hard, finding nothing but pure desire in her eyes. Still, he was disinterested in a replay of last night. “Woman, don’t play with me.” His voice was gruff, unintentionally.
“I never play this way, Omari.”
