Excerpt from "Soft Lies & Hard Truths"

 “I have a suite at the inn. Come home with me.”

Her eyes narrow as she shakes her head. “I couldn’t inconvenience you.” She runs a finger through her hair. “I don’t want to be a nuisance. I’ll figure something out, even if I don’t know what it is yet.” Her voice trembles even though she sounds determined.

“You could never be a nuisance. I’m staying in a cottage. It’s big enough for two people.” I quickly decide not to mention that it’s the honeymoon cottage; I don’t want her to think I’m trying to make a move on her when she’s vulnerable. “I promise you that the place is spacious.” I notice the shadows under her eyes, and the faint scattering of freckles across her nose. “Say yes.”

“Okay. I’ll do it.” Her head falls back against the seat. “I’ll stay for one night. I need time away from the situation at my father’s house. A good night’s sleep won’t hurt either.”

“No problem.” Leah in the honeymoon cottage; that’s what I call temptation. It’s going to be one long night and a true test of my willpower. She doesn’t suspect that she stole my heart almost twenty years ago and there’s never been anyone else. Is this the time to come clean and let her know that my interest in her isn’t platonic?
