Love After War

Happy Valentine’s Weekend All!

It is with great pleasure that I welcome author Té Russ to my blog! Té is introducing us to her new release – LOVE AFTER WAR. Let’s check it out!

Love After War cover

About the book:

Connie and Drew have been butting heads since they were teenagers. With Connie refusing to talk about anything from their past, Drew has never figured out what made them go from friends to enemies.

Drew decides to finally get to the root of their lifelong feud when Connie ends up in Texas for a remodeling project. When the truth comes out, it just might bring out some feelings both of them have been refusing to acknowledge for over a decade.


Drew told himself over and over to remember he was doing this for his grandfather and not to start a fight with her or be goaded into a fight that she may try to start. But the look in her eyes said war, so he threw on his mental battle armor and prepared himself.

She stopped in front of him.

She tilted her head up and looked him in the eyes.



It was their typical greeting toward each other. While everyone else greeted them by their nicknames, they purposely called each other by their full name because they knew it got on each other’s nerves.

“I promised Pops we’d try to get along. At least for the drive to the hotel.”

He pushed his hat up ever so slightly then looked at her with a raised eyebrow.

“‘Pops’?” he asked.

“He insisted I call him that.”

He didn’t respond. He finally pushed off the pillar and took a good look at her.

Connie tried not to squirm under his scrutiny. He walked around her taking in the full sight of her. The tight pencil skirt with a slit in the back stopped right above her knees and showed off every single curve of her body. Her sky high heels enhanced her sexy legs and the silky blouse underneath her blazer that matched her skirt gave just a peek of cleavage. He came back in front of her and continued to just stare at her. Finally he reached toward her. Connie tensed, not knowing what he was about to do.

He grabbed a strand of her hair.

“Andrew!” she said annoyed, slapping his hand away from her.

“Do you know how much this hairstyle–”

“Where’s the mop?”

Her eyes drew together in thin slits. “Excuse me?” she asked, growing instantly pissed.

He tried to hide his amused grin.

“You got rid of the mop on your head, Barb,” he said, calling her his personal nickname for her, referring to her hair, which he’d always claimed resembled the color of rhubarbs.

“It’s called a new style. And you know I never liked when you called me….”

The rest of her words got caught in her throat as he reached out to touch her hair again. He let the silky strands glide across his fingers before letting the hair fall gracefully down to below her shoulders.

“I like this new look on you Barb, it looks good.”

She felt herself soften a little at the compliment. “Thank you Andrew.”

He shrugged off her thanks. “Of course, I always thought your mop and broom were a match set. Did you leave your broom on the tarmac with the planes after you flew in on it or did you have it put on the baggage claim wheel?”

“Why you–”

The whir of the baggage claim wheel began at that moment and Drew stepped around Connie to go and wait for her luggage.

She stood there absolutely seething. He’d started it, now the gloves were coming off.

About the Author:

Growing up an introvert, Té Russ found solace in literary arts at an early age. She found reading to be a vehicle to broader horizons and writing a form of self-expression. She began writing love stories in her adolescent years as a way to expel her youthful thoughts of love into words. Since then she has gone from writing stories and thoughts of love in journals to attending college for journalism and falling in love, which has allowed those youthful words of love to blossom into a series of stories in her romance novels. Though she has an immense appreciation for the sheer smell that books collectively exert, she also has found balance to her introverted nature with adrenaline inducing activities. So if she does not have her nose pressed deeply into a book or her pen ticking through a pad, you may also find this mother of three baking some tasty treats, jumping out of airplanes, cheering her husband on at the top of her lungs at MMA fights, buzzing down the interstate on the back of motorcycles, or kayaking.
