What better way is there to close out a great beach-week than to post six sentences for all of you to enjoy? This week’s snippet comes from my second book, Flight Risk. This scene is taken from Evelyn Ryan’s inconvenient reunion with her old flame, country music artist Jaxon Lee.
After a ten-year absence, Evelyn Ryan returns to Nashville with her boyfriend, Will—who knows very little of Evelyn’s past. During the visit, Evelyn is confronted by friends she once knew and the love she had abandoned.

“Oh, I’ve missed you and your sweet innocence, Evie.”
The feigned sincerity in Jaxon’s words made me snort. “I highly doubt that,” I sneered, pulling from his sweltering grasp. My arm pulsed where his fingertips had grazed the sensitive skin; it was like my heart had relocated to the spot so it could be closer to him.
“Why?” he challenged, quickly masking the hurt in his voice.
“Maybe because it has been nine years since we were together—or maybe because you have a model ex-wife and a million different screaming fans calling your name every night.”
