A Luscious feature by Nana Prah ~ Midwife to Destiny

My most romantic moment

I love writing romance scenes for my characters, but today I’m going to share my most romantic moment.

I went to Savannah, GA to visit a friend who I had a huge crush on back in college. He took me to see The Sixth Sense at a matinee. Of course I pretended to be scared even though it was the second time I’d seen the movie. I admit to shamelessly grabbing his muscular bicep and hiding my face behind his his shoulder.

After the movie we headed out to the beach. On the way we laughed so much that my ribs hurt. To this day I can’t remember what was so dag on funny. When we got to the beach our group walked together for a short while and then the others decided to have a race.

I swear I didn’t plan this, but I’d forgotten my sweater. Who knew the weather would change? When I complained about being cold he rubbed his hands up and down my arms saying something like “I’ll keep you warm.”

The gorgeous ocean, quiet beach, and being with this wonderful man had lulled me into love.

We hugged for the longest time. When he pulled back I swore he was going to kiss me, but he only held me close again. Not one to keep my mouth shut, I asked him why he didn’t kiss me.

No response for a couple of minutes.

He shifted back and spit out his gum (the least romantic part of the story). Then he gave me the sweetest kiss I had ever experience in my life. A first kiss by the ocean, what the heck can be more romantic than that? I’m still waiting.

I’m giving away a $20 Amazon gift card which will run until the end of April. The rafflecopter link is below:

Midwife to Destiny by Nana Prah

Blurb

Ghanaian nurse Aurora ‘Ora’ Aikins never expected to find the love of her life while on vacation in South Africa. Engaged to another and believing that love has no place in her life, she returns to Ghana, and puts duty and honor first.

Three years later, Dr. Jason Lartey still can’t get Ora out of his mind or his heart. After learning she never married, he takes a risk and moves to Ghana hoping to rekindle what they started. His sudden appearance in Ora’s Emergency Department sends sparks flying all over again.

They’re in the same country, working in the same hospital, and together but distance creeps between them. Can they make their destined love one for the ages?

Excerpt

Ora focused on putting one foot in front of the other as if she were a one-year-old learning how to walk. After turning the corner and seeing the back of his head, she froze. She would know that head anywhere. He’d grown his hair out a little, but his adorable, Will Smith ears gave him away. Initiating the process of pivoting and sprinting out of the ED unnoticed sprang to mind when he turned around and his gaze caught hers.

The air became charged with tension and neither of them moved. Her heart threatened to pop out of her chest with the force of each beat. The nurses stood between them, looking back and forth as if they watched a tennis match. They didn’t bother to hide their expressions of curiosity.

They’d never seen Ora behave in such a manner. Not cool as a cucumber super nurse. Like herself, they kept looking at the new doctor just because of his tall, broad-shouldered, gorgeous stature. The past three years had matured him, adding a few lines around his eyes and the new feature of a goatee with a moustache changed his countenance a little. But otherwise, the same man she’d met three years ago, at least in the physical sense, stood before her.

After an eternity, Ora snapped back to attention. “Akwaaba, Dr. Lartey. Welcome to the ward.” Madam Professional stuck out her hand for a handshake.

Her words seemed to drag him out of his own stupor. “Uh….”

She had rendered the man speechless. Ora’s gracious nature—that’s what she blamed it on, anyway—took pity on him and she touched his shoulder. The contact sent sensual awareness through her and she recoiled her hand.

“Hello, Aurora. Please forgive me. It’s just that I’m a little surprised to see you.”

“Not as much as I am,” she muttered, attempting to squash both the joy bubbling up inside of her at seeing him again or the overwhelming sadness of what she’d been missing for so long.

“Pardon me?” he asked.

  1. Thank you for allowing me to share with the world my most romantic moment.

  2. Your Sixth Sense and beach story was really sweet. 🙂 I’ve also seen the movie and really liked it. I think the twist at the end was really cool.

    When my children were little, their pediatrician was from Ghana, West Africa. Dr. Saki was a very nice man.

    Best wishes with your writing and have a great week!
