That is all I can say about that now so I don't give too much away. I'll just add that he had good reasons to leave like he did, but getting Tern to understand them won't be so easy.
Gage is very enterprising and handy to have along on this geocaching competition turned fight for their lives. He has a take charge attitude, looks outside the box for solutions, and isn't above listening and depending on a woman in a sticky situation. Like most men, he does have a few hang-ups that get him into a lot more trouble with our heroine.
Tern and Gage together are explosive. I never knew what they were going to say and do when writing them. When you read page 50 you'll understand what I mean.
Here is a snippet of a scene that happens after page 50.
"Try it." Gage stepped closer, his chest brushing hers. She sucked in a startled breath, but didn’t step back. "You make one sexual move toward any one of them and you’ll wish you hadn’t."
"You left, throwing away any rights you had toward me." Her voice broke and the pain in her eyes had him wanting to hold her, beg her forgiveness for what he’d done six months ago and how he’d treated her today. But he couldn’t.
She was right. She was no longer his to lay claim to. And when she found out why he’d left, she’d look at him with contempt as well as with the pain he’d caused her. "Tern—"
"Leave. Me. Alone."
"I can’t." He hardened his jaw. "Not until the threat has been neutralized."
"If you don’t give me some space, I’ll be the biggest threat you’ve ever come across."
Only a few more posts to go and then I will be announcing the names of the winners for three digital copies of DEATH CACHE. The winners will announced Friday.
For fun, what are some enterprising things your partner (or the partner you long for) does that just melts your insides? I'll start.
My wild man knows his way around my computer, and when he cleans her up, gets her all updated, or saves her from the brink, I turn all mushy inside.
Now, it's your turn.
