Read an Excerpt
Will watched Katie move easily around the kitchen, as if she’d lived in this house for years, not mere weeks. As usual, her long blond hair was braided in a single pigtail—but there was no ball cap today. She seemed somehow elegant and refined despite the blue jeans and tank top.
She turned and held a mug toward him. “Here you go.”
Without thinking, Will reached out and touched a tendril of hair that had come loose and lay spiraled near her cheek. “You have paint in your hair.”
She stood perfectly still, her deep brown—almost black—eyes gazing into his with an expression he couldn’t quite read. Slowly, she reached up and ran her fingers through the strands in an effort to remove the hardened glob. “I probably look a mess.”
Will knew he should make a comment, but he didn’t know what it should be. Yes, she looked a mess—but he had a feeling her interpretation of the word didn’t correspond with his. Even though her expensive jeans were marred with paint, and her white tank top was streaked with what might be walnut wood stain, she exuded the type of beauty that could both daze and haunt.
“Do you take sugar or cream?”
It took Will a moment to realize she was speaking to him. She nodded toward the mug that had somehow been transferred into his hand.
