High school reunions are supposed to be joyous times of sharing memories and success...not gunfire and death...
Just as I was about to fall asleep, I heard her come back into the room. She took the tiniest of steps like she was scared to come any closer. A mix of emotions covered her face, but in the end, it was her smile that got me. It gave me hope.
I had to ask, I had to hold on to the slightest chance that she was wrong before. She told me all she knew, and it was final. I listened to her sweet voice, but all that came to my mind was the fact that he was gone.
Closing my eyes, I wept. I had the slightest urge to pull her close. It was crazy, we barely knew each other, but I was holding on by a thread. Her soft, cold hand lay on top of mine and my heart skipped a beat. Putting my hand on top of hers, I held on to her, hoping that she’d give me the strength I needed to get through it all. With my luck, she’d be gone by tomorrow. For the moment though, she was there for me, and I wasn’t going to give it up.
Texas born and raised, I found my love for dirty books rather recently. I work in real estate for my day job and I write contemporary romance with a twist of suspense and erotica. Sinfully, Regretfully, and Deceitfully can be read in order or as standalones. Sinfully and Regretfully take place around the same time frame and can even be read in reverse order (will give more background on Payton and Ryder’s story). Tate’s story, Deceitfully, will finish off the series and will be out in spring of 2015.
