The Goodreads Giveaway has gone away, ending February 28th. Winners have already been chosen. My heartfelt thanks to all of you who requested and everyone following, liking, commenting and sharing here and on FB and Instagram. It means more to me than you know. Congratulations to the 50 lucky winners! More blogs and excerpts coming. For now, let me leave you with an excerpt explaining who Michael defines as lucky.
“This isn’t going to work.” I stare at the sky, hands clenched. It had been in the first few days he had spoken of Rachel. It sounded enticing, two lovers freely expressing themselves without reticence. Who was I kidding? Tears spill out under my Ray-bans and I brush them away quickly, furious with myself when they just keep coming. It’s Michael who takes off my glasses and pulls me into his arms. “You’re right, I have hang ups. I can’t do it all.”
“Baby girl, don’t cry, not about that. I was just teasing you. We don’t have to if you don’t want. We can go walk on the beach.”
“I don’t want a stupid walk on the beach! I want to, but I can’t! What if someone does see us?”
“What if they did? You’re a beautiful woman lounging by the pool at a private villa, alone with, lucky you, God’s gift to your sex. If someone got lost and wandered by they’re the one who should apologize, while they still have their teeth.”
And just like that I’m laughing through my tears. “What if it’s a woman?” (Closed Doors, ©2017)
