Come To Me By LaVerne Thompson

cometomeWe put so much stock in our visual sense in truth because most of us need visual prompts. The sighted world describes things in color before texture. When we fall in love we either believe in love at first sight or we don’t. Come To Me is a sensual romantic contemporary about two people who fall in love without actually ever setting eyes on each other. But from the first hello are drawn to one another. Even when they do meet there is an instant sense of recognition a connection. Come To Me is a love story that explores my belief that at times we use more than just one of our sense when we fall in love. We do in fact use them all.

Confirmed bachelor Baron Munro doesn’t believe in love, much less love at first sight. But what about love at first sound? It wasn’t until he heard Jasmine Sandler’s voice that he realized his life was missing something.

Jasmine didn’t know what to make of the man who haunted her days and invaded her nights. She knew the sound of his voice as intimately as she knew her own.

But…they’ve never actually met. Dare she take the risk of a lifetime?


The mangled scents of perfume and sex teased Baron Munro’s senses as he turned his head and looked for a clock on the bedside table. There wasn’t one. Didn’t matter, it was time to go. He’d indulged them both long enough. Glancing at the tangle of long blonde hair resting on the pillow near his head, he hoped the owner would continue slumbering. The last thing he needed was to explain why he wasn’t going to spend the rest of the night, or any other, with her. He should have been long gone already, but he’d been exhausted even before the sex marathon. And that damned near drained him. Yet, he still felt unsatisfied.

In the last few months, no matter how much he indulged, he’d roll out of bed feeling as empty as he had before he climbed in it. Even with his brief hiatus from casual sex, this time was no different from any of the others. A break was not what he had needed. Whatever he was looking for wasn’t here either. He passed his hand over his face in exhaustion.

Shifting, Baron eased his body off the bed and picked up his clothes where he’d thrown them on the chair earlier in the evening. Naked, his things clutched to his chest, he carefully opened the bedroom door. He closed it behind him and released the breath he’d been holding. After dressing in the hallway, he made his way fully attired to the front door. When he reached the lobby, he dumped the card with the woman’s name and number in the trashcan near a pillar. They’d been out a couple of times now, but he’d never saved her number in his contact listings. He wouldn’t be calling her again. She was a mistake, another in a long succession of them he was damned tired of making.
