On a sweltering summer day, Daisy Aldridge knocks on the wrong door. She’s yanked inside. Trapped and pressed against her only means of escape she spirals into a panic. Years ago she suffered an assault. Alone and afraid, she kept it hidden and dealt with the emotional aftermath in her own way.
But this time she’s not alone. She’s helped by a man who seems vaguely familiar. Roy Blackwood is gorgeous, powerful, and controlled. She tells herself she wants nothing to do with him.
Roy sees through her resistance and is determined to unravel the mysteries of Daisy. He promises to find the identity of her birth parents and unveil the person who leaves her anonymous gifts. And most important of all, earn the love and trust of Daisy Aldridge.
Roy’s suit is custom, the fabric expensive, and the cut classic. His shoes have a mirror shine. The way he holds himself is confident, like he knows no one can beat him. The hard lines and angles of his face add to his magnetism. In short, he’s devastatingly handsome, and I’m sure he’s well aware of this fact as his eyes periodically flick over me and the rest of the room.
How old is he? Why is he here? And why was he in the trailer? And how did he know how to help me? Now that I’m calmer and in a safe environment, I realize Jason was vaguely familiar. Obviously, he’s an actor, so I must have seen him in something. I’m mentally scrolling through the articles I’ve read about the movie when I realize the room is silent and everyone is watching me like they’re waiting for me to respond.
Aunt Mae’s head tilts to the side. “Dear, did you hear what Mr. Blackwood asked?”
What did I miss? “Sorry.” I sit up straight and tuck a curl behind my ear. “What?”
“I was telling your charming aunts I’d like to make up for my brusque behavior and take you out to dinner tonight.”
Mae and Stella are smiling like schoolgirls. Mr. Blackwood has won them over. Et tu, aunties.
There’s no way he wants to have dinner with me. Not someone like him. “No,” I respond firmly and add, “I appreciate you taking the time to bring the invoice.”
His lips form a seductive smile. “Breakfast tomorrow.”
Before I can answer, Stella gives me a stern look, and pipes in, “Yes, she’d love to.”
I shake my head, knowing resistance is futile. They’re tenacious as terriers and have no intention of letting a handsome man, one they perceive as being interested in me, escape.
“Good.” He adjusts the cuff of his shirt. “I’ll see you at ten.”
