A TASTE OF HAPPINESS

“Oh, why did I ask a chef to dinner?” Estelle asked herself.

What had she been thinking? It wasn’t that she was a bad cook. She’d certainly garnered her share of compliments over the years, but inviting Gaetano to dinner had not been the best decision she’d made recently. And yet, she’d wanted to thank him.

The doorbell rang and Estelle’s heart quickened. When the door opened, it revealed the hugest bouquet she’d ever seen, a riot of color and fragrance. Peeking through lavender irises and yellow roses were two deep brown eyes twinkling with mischief and humor.

“Gaetano, you shouldn’t have. They’re beautiful.” Estelle took the flowers and leaned into the handsome Italian. His lips found hers, and because her hands still held the flowers, she could do nothing but submit. In fact, she not only submitted but responded in such a way that parts of her anatomy suddenly woke with the vigor and enthusiasm of a girl in her twenties. Indeed, for the first time in ages every nerve in her body felt as if it were doing cartwheels and back flips.
