Truth and Treachery

The Last War Book 3

The Last War series is one of a kind. The personal relationships are intriguing… The names are cool, the plot gets thicker with each page, and I loved the author’s style. I was sad to be finished and impressed by the world that Grayson was able to create. The descriptions were so real and the well-developed characters and sensuous love scenes make this a page turner.
Emperor Carlton has been backed into a corner, with his visions of expansion collapsing all around him. The skirmishes he’s launched have had limited success. But he has a new plan to overthrow everything Khandarken has cobbled together since the end of the Last War, and he knows just the man to make it happen. Chief Constable Lanser is a private man with a close connection to the Old Emprie that he doesn’t divulge to anyone. Although he’s dedicated to his position in Khandarken, things are not what they seem in the rank and file of the police. And it’s his job to fix it. Selanna Nettles is a sookie, trained in Legitamia, who works with the disposessed and injured workers in the Western Territory near her family. When she meets Lanser, her life takes a startling turn once he hires her to accompany him to a set of high-level meetings in Gilsigg. In Legitamia, these three meet up and the result is explosive. Not just for each of them but for the future of Khandarken. When the Emperor makes Conden an offer, can he refuse? Especially as it is everything he’s secretly dreamed of.

Prince of Jiran

The Last War Book 5

Shandro, Prince of the Penrhy tribe of Jiran, disagrees with his father, Sovereign Pollack, on nearly every issue that arises between them. But his goal is to uphold the family values in spite of Pollack’s conniving moves as he deals with the hotbed of competing nations.
Then Shandro is sent on a mission across the mountains into Khandarken to bring back Princess Chinata, a bride for Emperor Carlton’s Advisor. In exchange, Jiran and the Penrhy tribe are given a peace agreement, protection against invasion by the Emperor’s troops. This seems a good trade, as Carlton is hovering on their borders with his need for more land. However, not far into the journey, it becomes apparent someone is not adhering to the terms of the peace accord.
Near the tribal border, Shandro and his troops have come under direct attack from unknown forces. He digs deeper into Chinata’s background to find strong ties to the New Empire. Is it too dangerous to bring Princess Chinata into Jiran? Or as her escort, does Shandro become her defender against the Emperor’s troops?

From the Pen of Mae Clair

pathway between large, gnarled trees with words "on the path of Wednesday Weirdness" superimposed over imageIt’s time for another dose of Wednesday Weirdness. Today’s post comes with a bonus—a free book of Halloween stories. But first . . .

Beware the marsh when night unfolds,
and darkness sends the sun in flight.
‘Tis no place for mortal creature,
home to Fae and ghostly light.

Spook lights have many different names depending on culture and location, but have long been intertwined with magical things that go bump-in-the-night. Often referred to as ‘foolish fire’ for the propensity to lead night time travelers astray, these lights have various names including will-o-wisps, elf light, fox fire, and ghost lights among others.

Commonly attributed to the Fae or elemental spirits, they rarely bring good fortune to those who see them. When viewed in a graveyard, they are called  corpse candles. Dancing over marshy grounds and bogs, locals have dubbed them Jack o’ lanterns or friar’s lanterns. In some cases they’ve…

Death Among Us #Suspense #Reading @StephenBentley8 @Shalini_G26


Who knew death could be so eclectic?

Relish this mesmerizing murder mystery mash-up of short stories.

Murder and mystery have been the staple of literature and films for years. This anthology of short stories will thrill and entertain you. Some will also make you laugh out loud. Others will stop and make you think.

Think of this murder mystery short story anthology as a book version of appetisers or starters, hors d’oeuvre, meze, or antipasti. It can be read as fillers between books or, as is the case in some countries, as a bookish meze – in its own right.

There’s murder mystery styles and locations to suit all tastes: detective fiction, serial killers, scifi, histfic, England, Los Angeles, San Francisco, The Great Lakes, Las Vegas, the Nevada desert, Mexico and more in an exquisite exposition of the art of short story telling.

These stories come from an international cast of authors; some with bestselling books, others are emerging or new talents. Their roots, cultures, and life experiences are as diverse as their writing styles.

But one thing binds them together: they know how to tell a story.

The ten authors who have contributed to the anthology are:

Stephen Bentley

Greg Alldredge

Kelly Artieri

Robbie Cheadle

Michael Spinelli

L. Lee Kane

Kay Castaneda

Aly Locatelli

Justin Bauer

Posthumously by ‘G’

The stories include the 2019 SIA Award-Winning Murder Mystery Short Story ‘The Rose Slayer’ by Stephen Bentley.

Each author introduces his or her stories and the theme that lays behind them. By the time you finish the book, you will agree the result is a mesmerising murder mystery mash-up.

As there are over 20 stories, I will add two excerpts from two stories below:

From Justice is Never Served by Robbie Cheadle

The baby in the crib started to moan and thrash about as the temperature in the room dropped dramatically. The narrow lips of the dark shape at the newly opened door twisted into something that passed as a smile, an action which transformed her ugly face into a picture of pure evil and malevolence. 

From The Neighbours by Aly Locatelli

She found herself filled with bitterness and remorse as the door opened and two detectives filed in. One was tall and thin, the other short and stocky. Such a cliché it almost made her laugh. She bit her tongue, reached for her coffee, and said nothing. The two detectives introduced themselves as Detectives Spinner and Boyd, but the names were soon forgotten.

Decline in Retail Stores


An interesting post by Marsha Riegert West on the demise of the retail market.

Word by Word

I began to write about this issue last week on my personal blog, but technology took over. (Kind of like a character does when you’re writing. LOL) But walking at Ridgmar Mall Monday, working on getting my steps, the emptiness just overcame me. I had to share my thoughts.

So Ridgmar was the first mall in Fort Worth. After Bob finished law school, we moved from Austin to Fort Worth for his job. I had been living in San Antonio and was used to having malls and shopping that way, so it was a huge adjustment and then a cause for great celebration when Ridgmar opened several years after we arrived. It was a fancy with large columns and had all the big stores: Nieman Marcus, Dillard’s, and Sanger Harris (turned into Foley’s into Macy’s.). I have many fond memories of shopping at Ridmar with my mother and my daughters.

A Haunted House Tale and #NewRelease News #Romance


Image by Clker-Free-Vector-Images from Pixabay

I Lived in a Haunted House

I shared this TRUE haunted house story with my newsletter subscribers last week and decided you might like to hear it, as well.

With Halloween just around the corner, I thought I’d share my true haunted house story with you.

I was fourteen when my parents moved away from my childhood home to the country. Dad was a truck driver and owned a White Western Star. Understandably, the town changed its rules about parking a semi on residential streets, so we had no choice.

The house sat on an acre lot across from the golf course and was a ranch-style on a full basement—sounds nice, right?

And it was, at first.

We were in the house a few months before little things began to occur. A milk bottle sitting on the floor in the kitchen fell over while we were eating dinner in the dining room. Birds hitting the bay window and falling to their death, even though we had a colorful ribbon strung from side-to-side. Doors closing of their own volition. All could be explained away, but they left us with an uncomfortable feeling in our guts.

To clarify, my dad was on the road for long hours, so it was Mom, my two younger brothers and I living in the house and bearing witness to these events. Maybe, if Dad were there it would have been different—I don’t know.

Mom had a workroom at the back of the house, next to her bedroom, where she would do sewing and crafts like eggery and paper toile that she sold at our local Farmer’s Market. She often complained it was chilly in there but put it down to poor air circulation. Then, she started feeling like she was being watched, even though no one was there. One day, she swore she saw a shadow of a person in her bedroom mirror—again, no one was near.

My bedroom took up most of the basement, other than a room set aside for my brother who is two years younger than me. My youngest brother slept upstairs. I loved my room, it ran the length of the house and had a phone (a big deal for a teenager!), a pool table, and a library. The yard light filled the room with a golden glow at night making it easy to move around without turning on the lights since the switch was on the far wall near the phone.

One night, I woke up with my heart pounding from a bad nightmare. When I opened my eyes, it was pitch-black. So dark I couldn’t see my hand in front of my face. Terrified, I climbed out of bed and inched my way across the room, trying to find the stairs. I called my brother’s name several times, but he didn’t answer. It was like all the air had been sucked out of the room. I was drowning in fear.

Finally, I found the steps and half-crawled, half-ran up them to the main floor and guess what? The yard light was on! I woke Mom up from my crying and she went to check on my brother. He was sound asleep and said the next morning he never heard a thing.

After that, I slept on the couch upstairs. Nothing could persuade me to go back to my room. A year or so later, Mom talked Dad into selling the house, even though they took a loss. We found out later, there had been a fire in the attic and always wondered if someone had died.

All these years later, I still can’t stand anything near my face without it inducing a panic attack.

A Bride for Brynmor by @Jacqui_Nelson #Historical #BookReview


Can a sister who’s lived only for others find freedom with one man? Family has always come first—for both of them. He’s never forgiven himself for letting her go. She’s never forgiven herself for almost getting him killed.

When Lark and her songbird sisters are separated fleeing their cruel and controlling troupe manager, only Brynmor Llewellyn can help Lark save her sisters and escape to the far west. But Lark wants more. And so does Brynmor. When they’re stranded in a spot as difficult to guard as it is to leave—a rustic cabin at a train junction between Denver and the mountain town of Noelle, Colorado—they find themselves fighting not only for survival but for redemption, forgiveness, and a second chance for their love.

Will the frontier train stop of Songbird Junction be Lark and Brynmor’s salvation? Or their downfall when her manager, a con artist who calls himself her uncle but cherishes only his own fame and fortune—demands a debt no one can pay?

Biography

Fall in love with a new Old West… where the men are steadfast & the women are adventurous. You’ll find Wild West scouts, spies, cardsharps, wilderness guides, and trick-riding superstars in my stories. Those are my heroines. Wait till you meet my heroes! My love for historical romance adventures with grit and passion came from watching Western movies while growing up on a cattle farm in northern Canada. I’ve been nominated for over 20 awards and won the RWA® Golden Heart® & the Laramie® — but my best reward is hearing from readers who have enjoyed my stories.

My Review

Lark, Oriole, and Wren are three sisters-of-the-heart raised in a métis foster home until their ‘uncle’, a troupe manager, steps in and takes over their lives.

Desperate to flee his cruelty, the sisters escape separately with plans to meet in Denver. But Lark is followed by her uncle, and with the timely arrival of Brynmor, she escapes capture.

Brynmor Llewellyn has been in love with the beautiful songbird, Lark, for a long time, but they both have family responsibilities keeping them apart. When he interrupts an attempt by her manager to capture her, his priorities change. He can’t ignore his heart any longer and commits to protecting her, whatever the price.

Favorite Lines

Rows of fiddles, banjos, mandolins, several pianos, even a few accordions and— She gasped with amazement. Mrs. Fitzpatrick had a hurdy-gurdy? The rare find yanked her forward like a lasso ’round her heart.

Must Love Coffee #Romance #BookReview @MayberrySarah


All’s fair in love and…caffeine?

When Daniel jokingly appoints himself Customer of the Week at his favourite coffee shop, he has no idea he’s just fired the first salvo in what will swiftly become an epic battle of wills with a mysterious woman called Cassidy. As a committed coffee lover, Cassidy can’t let his self-appointed claim go uncontested – and so starts a clash for the ages. 

The city becomes captivated by their escalating antics via the magic of social media and Cassidy and Daniel become obsessed with one-upping each other’s next move, providing a much-needed distraction from everyday life. But as they keep upping the stakes, both of them start to wonder if there’s more to this rivalry than meets the eye. 

But meeting IRL means letting go of their contest and facing reality. Their caffeine addiction has taken them this far…but will one of them blink and admit the real fix is the other?

Based on a true story that entertained the world, this light-hearted novella offers a window into a possible “what if?” for lovers of happy-ever-afters everywhere. 

Biography

Sarah Mayberry lives in Melbourne, Australia, with her partner of nearly twenty years (who has recently become her husband!). When she’s not in her pajamas eating peanut butter sandwiches and typing away madly on her latest story, she enjoys reading, cooking, sleeping, pilates, going to the movies and shopping. Not necessarily in that order!

Some of Sarah’s favorite authors are Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Rachel Gibson, Karina Bliss, Mary Balogh, Julie James, Sherry Thomas, Meredith Duran, and Loretta Chase. Her favorite movie is When Harry Met Sally, although she is also very fond of His Girl Friday and Something About Mary.

Sarah loves to hear from readers via her website at http://www.sarahmayberry.com

My Review

Coffee and romance- two of my favorite things!

Daniel is nursing a bruised heart over the loss of his beloved dog of fifteen years (I really connected with this aspect of the book, and thought it was well portrayed), so his feelings are on his shirt sleeves. Needing something to jar him out of his funk, he starts a friendly sparring match with the local barista at his favorite coffee shop, naming himself customer of the week. He even brings in a cute hand-drawn image of himself and hangs it on the wall.

When Cassidy arrives at her favorite coffee shop and notices the plaque, she takes umbrage. After all, she’s been a loyal client for years. When she finds out it was the work of some joker, the gloves come off.

What follows is a free-for-all as these two competitive coffee-lovers try to outdo each other in the name of fun.

When Daniel and Cassidy finally meet, they find out they have more in common than their passion for winning-which just might give them the greatest prize of all.

This is a fun afternoon read by one of my favorite authors. I give Must Love Coffee 4 lovely kisses!

Rating: 4 out of 5.

On Navigating the Murky Middle


Sisterhood of Suspense​ #author Joanne Guidoccio​ shares tips for getting over that sagging middle ground on our WIP. Stop by and share your ideas; we’d love to hear from you.

Word by Word

By Joanne Guidoccio

I love beginnings—in life and on the page. Anything and everything is possible whenever a blank slate appears before me. That momentum can last for days, weeks, months, and sometimes even longer.

At least, that’s what I like to think whenever I begin a new writing project.

A linear pantser, I write brief character sketches, plot the first three chapters and the last, and then let the words flow. At some point, usually around Page 80, I encounter the murky middle, that nebulous place where I find it difficult to continue or sustain the tension of the novel. In short, I’m lost with no clear trail or direction in sight.

In the early days of my writing career, I struggled to regain my motivation, wondering if I should abandon the novel. Thankfully, I have discovered three strategies that have lifted me out of the abyss.

Once upon a time, the Vlasta Vipers hockey team was so incredible — on and off the

Every other university wanted their team to be them. Every chick who crossed their paths wanted to bang them.

Their clout on the ice is questionable. Their competition cutthroat.

Their beds…

Well, there will always be puck bunnies ready to keep them warm. After all, no matter
how well they do or don’t do, they are the university’s most important
athletes.

However, when Remington Ronald Rutledge the 3rd, lands himself on the new head coach’s bad side, which threatens his chances of playing for the season, he finds
himself striking an unusual deal with a blast from his past he can barely
remember.

Did she always wear these glasses? Was her hair always this curly? Has
she always had a smile that makes him wanna smile?

What happens when the bad boy who makes all the rules is forced to play by someone else’s? Can this good-looking goalie let love score, or will blocking it be the biggest
mistake of his life?

Being the princess of the Dark Knights motorcycle club doesn’t come with a white knight or a fairy-tale castle, and that’s okay, because Dixie Whiskey has never needed a man to slay her dragons or make her whole. Even so, after watching each of her brothers fall in love, she’d sure like a shot at her own happily ever after. But with the Dark Knights watching over her and the only man she’s ever wanted out of reach, she’s not holding her breath.

As the launch of Silver-Stone Cycles’ biggest line approaches, Jace Stone is left needing a favor from the one woman who holds the power to take him to his knees. He knows when it comes to sinfully gorgeous and sharp-tongued Dixie Whiskey, he must stay on his toes and keep his walls firmly in place. But Jace needs her for his business—and Jace Stone always gets what he wants.

When the tall, gruff, and darkly handsome biker presents an opportunity that any other woman might see as the chance of a lifetime, Dixie turns him down flat. But Jace is determined, and he pulls out all the stops—sending Dixie’s overprotective brothers up in arms. Rebellious Dixie takes a stand—going after the freedom, and the man, she’s always wanted. One scorching kiss leads to an undeniable connection, but Jace isn’t looking to be tied down, and Dixie refuses to play second fiddle. Can two untamable hearts find forever love in each other’s arms?

Excerpt

She walked over to a table where three guys had just finished their beers and grabbed their empty bottles. “Refills?”

“Yeah, thanks,” one of the guys said.

She walked away with the human inferno that was Jace Stone on her heels.

“Dixie, how can you be upset with me? I gave you a twenty-thousand-dollar donation for the auction.”

She set the bottles on the bar and said, “Which I truly appreciate, but giving of yourself and giving money are two different things. One is easy and mindless. The other tells me who you are. It was a real eye-opener.” She crossed her arms and said, “What did you need help with anyway?”

Diesel grabbed the empty bottles, and Dixie said, “Another round, please.”

“I’m rolling out the Legacy line in the fall.”

“So I’ve heard. Bear’s pretty excited.” In addition to working at Whiskey Automotive, Bear worked part-time designing and building custom motorcycles for Jace’s company. He hadn’t worked on the Legacy line, but he raved about it.

“We all are. This line is my baby. I’ve put blood, sweat, and tears into it. It’s the first motorcycle line that will have bikes designed specifically for women. Nobody’s doing that, Dix. This is a huge deal.”

Bear had told her all about Jace’s innovative, sleek designs for women. It was a genius idea, and it didn’t surprise her that Jace had come up with it. But she couldn’t help thinking about Jace researching the contours of women’s bodies…

Diesel put three bottles on the bar, eyes locked on Jace. “Stone,” he said evenly.

“Diesel.” Jace lifted his chin in the manly greeting Dixie was accustomed to.

“Thanks, Diesel,” Dixie said, and as she headed to the table with Jace beside her, she said, “Congratulations on the line, but what does it have to do with needing me?” She set the bottles down, flashed a smile at the customers, and said, “Can I get you boys anything else?”

One of them looked her up and down lasciviously. Jace stepped closer, and the guy shifted his eyes away and said, “No. We’re good.”

Dixie spun on her heels, grabbed Jace’s arm, and dragged him to the side of the room. She felt Diesel’s antennae springing and glanced at the bar, mouthing, I’m fine! Turning her attention to Jace, she spoke in a harsh whisper. “You just fucked up my tip, and I don’t appreciate it. So whatever you have to say, say it and be gone, okay? I’ve got work to do.”

“That guy was looking at you like you were a piece of meat.”

“No shit. They all do.” Except now that she was thinking about it, Jace never had. Not once. In fact, in all the years she’d known him, this was the longest he’d ever looked at her. He didn’t live in Peaceful Harbor, but he traveled there often to see his brother Jared, who had signed up for the auction. Jared owned a restaurant in Pleasant Hill and lived there for several months out of the year. “I have a lot to do, Jace, so if you have more to say, please get on with it.”

“I’m launching a women’s clothing line called Leather and Lace when we launch the Legacy line. We’re making a calendar to promote the clothing and the new bikes. The photo shoot is next week, and the woman I hired to model got hurt and can’t make it. I want you to replace her.”

She blinked several times, unable to believe what she was hearing. An incredulous laugh tumbled out. “Do you even fucking know me, Stone? I am not a pinup girl!” She took a step away and he grabbed her arm, tugging her back to him and keeping her so close, she could see flecks of gold in his sexy hazel eyes.

“This is important to me, Dixie. I don’t want someone who fakes being a biker. I want an authentic woman. I want you.”

“Do I need to point out that I was your second choice, or maybe your tenth. I don’t know or care, because any way you cut it, the answer is no. I told you, I’m not a pinup girl.” She held his steady gaze with an ice-cold one of her own and said, “For the record, Whiskeys don’t play second fiddle to anyone. Sorry, Stone, but you’re out of luck.”

“Come on, Dixie,” he pleaded gruffly. “I’ll let you auction me off.”

“Too little, too late. The ballot is full.” The lie felt victorious. She yanked her arm free and said, “I have customers to help. Good luck with the line. I’m sure, like everything you touch, it will turn to gold.”

“With you on board, it’ll be legendary.”

“No.”

He leaned closer and lowered his voice to say, “This isn’t over, kitten.”

“What the hell did you just say?” Anger simmered inside her. She poked him in his rock-hard chest and said, “I’m nobody’s kitten, and you’re this close to earning a knee to your groin.”

“You definitely know how to use those claws, and you’re so sweet I bet you purr,” he said arrogantly. “You know you want to do it, Dix.”

His eyes drilled into her, causing heat to sear through her veins and her traitorous nipples to pebble into aching peaks. Damn, he played dirty.

“Careful, Stone. This kitten bites.”

About GIRL IN LUV:

Langley Vaughn is in desperate need of a date.

But not just any date.

She’s looking for a date to the wedding from hell. It isn’t every day you’re forced to be in the bridal party while your first love marries your archnemesis…otherwise known as the world’s worst stepsister. The entire situation is a nightmare, and Langley is sick and tired of taking orders and forcing a fake smile. She’s done being the bad guy when she was the one who was wronged.

She needs to find a date who’s not afraid of her family’s money…someone willing to shake things up. She needs someone outside of her normal social circle, someone ready to go to war with the well-to-do. She needs someone who won’t back down. Someone willing to play the complicated game of tug-of-war she’s been engaged in with her family for years.

Never in a million years did she think she was going to stumble across her very own heroic heartthrob when she set her crazy plan in motion.

Not only does Iker show up for her time and time again, he also forces her to finally fight for herself.

He says he’s only there for the money…but his actions speak so much louder than his words.

Iker Alvarez would do anything and everything to get his hands on some quick cash.

Not just any cash, but enough to make sure his younger brother gets into the college of his dreams.

Thank goodness for a desperate, pretty little rich girl with too much money and her heart set on an outrageous scheme. Being in the right place at the right time might just be the answer to both of their prayers—and this smart soldier has never let a golden opportunity slide by.

Iker doesn’t mind coming to Langley’s rescue and being her plus-one…as long as the price is right.

Only, he didn’t plan on liking the blonde socialite as much as he does. He is totally unprepared for the pull he feels toward her, coupled with his growing desire to protect her from the vultures and villains living under the same roof.

He wants to be the guy who keeps her safe and gives her the courage she obviously needs to fight back… But someone else, someone far more powerful and influential than Langley’s wealthy family, has dibs on Iker’s time and on his future. He knows he isn’t the guy Langley can count on in the long run, but damn, if he doesn’t want to do everything in his power to be that man.

About BOY IN LUV:

Distance sure as hell made his heart grow fonder… But it shattered hers into a million pieces.

Langley Vaughn knows she’s never going to make the same mistake again.

Who falls head over heels in love in a week? Langley did, and she’s regretted it every day since she handed her heart to a boy with too many secrets and too much baggage. Iker doesn’t fit into Langley’s world, and he made it clear he doesn’t want to. He left before she even got a chance to try and change his mind or to prove to him how good they could be together. Langley’s spent the last nine months healing her heart and making big plans for the future. Plans that absolutely don’t include Iker… even though he’s back, looking better than ever, and saying all the right things.

Iker Alvarez knows he made the biggest mistake of his life.

At first, the pretty blonde in the red dress was nothing more than a means to an end. But, she quickly became so much more. As soon as Iker walked away from Langley, claiming it was for her own good, he knew he screwed up. He left her so she wouldn’t worry about him when he deployed, so she wouldn’t waste her time waiting around for a guy who was never going to be good enough for her. Only, nine months and a deployment later, Iker still can’t get Langley out of his head… and he totally underestimated the hold she has on his hardened heart. He’s a guy who’s not sure how love should work, or how to go about winning his girl back…he’s about to get a crash course in both.

m- excerpt

Trish had planned for her wedding since she was a young girl. She still had the scrapbooks she’d used after carefully cutting out the perfect dress, bouquet, flowers, venue—everything her twelve-year-old mind could dream up. And nowhere in that sacred journal would she find pictures of a back-country wedding.

Funny how perfect it sounded now.

She picked up her hairbrush and ran it needlessly through her hair before tying it back with a velvet ribbon. “I don’t think I’m ready to get married,” she said, fiddling with the oversized diamond on her finger.

“Um, does your fiancé know this?” Sophia asked, moving to Trish’s side. “If you need to talk—”

“No. Thank you though.” Trish met her empathic gaze and cursed her rambling tongue. “Put it down to bridal nerves. I’ll be fine tomorrow.”

Sophia took the brush from Trish’s fingers and grasped her hand. “I realize we aren’t buddies—yet—but my brother fell in love with you at one time and that tells me that you’re someone I need to get to know better.” She smiled at Trish’s start of surprise. “Did you think it was a secret? My brothers don’t keep much from me, I’m too nosey.” She laughed.

Trish squeezed her hand before letting it go. She was beginning to hate this trip and what it was turning her into.

“You’re wrong, Aaron and I were… friends, but that ended a long time ago. It was a casual relationship that ran its course. We weren’t exactly compatible—I mean, he’s country and I’m a city girl through and through. It never would have worked.”

Sophia opened her mouth to say something but was interrupted by a banging on the door that had both women flinching.

“Hey, Trish,” Kyle called out from the other side of the heavy wood panels. “Hurry up, I’m hungry. Let’s hope it’s healthier than the swill they’ve served so far.”

Trish glared a hole in the door before turning to apologize to their hostess. “He’s usually better than this, I’m so sorry.”

Sophia shrugged it off. “Men. You can’t live with them and you can’t bury them in the backyard for the coyotes to find. The law frowns on that sort of thing.”

They looked at each other and grinned before opening the door to an irate fiancé.
