Happy Friday! Since it's the 13th of the month, here's a little teaser from page 13 of Identity Theft, my very first romantic suspense novella.
Their last night together was supposed to be a celebration. Lacy had just finished her spring semester of community college. Raphael told her it was a big surprise. She didn’t admit it to anybody, but she wondered if this was it. The night he’d propose. They’d talked about it enough, hadn’t they?
She didn’t know why he brought her so deep into the North End, but she never questioned him. It was a surprise, he told her. The dock he drove toward looked mostly abandoned. It was dark. Nobody was around. It sounded like Raphael’s idea of something romantic. Creative Raphael, never content to do anything the traditional way.
“Are you sure you’re not lost?” she asked, and he smiled that sideways grin he only got when he was nervous. That’s when she knew. This really was it. The Night. She tried to remember every image. Every detail. Then one day when they had a family of her own, she could tell her daughters about the night Daddy asked her to marry him.
Only that’s not what happened.
