She hadn’t seen him in a few months and cheerfully returned his hug. He released her, held her at arm’s reach, and cocked a knowing smile. "You’re in for a trial here, sweetcakes."
Yeah, she’d gotten that idea the moment she’d seen the stud reunion.
A business owner of a sporting goods store just down the street from her own shop, The Arctic Tern, Robert had made the most sense in her husband search. He was involved in the community, regularly attended church, loved dogs, and was a single parent in need of a mother for his beautiful six-year-old daughter, Chloe, who Tern adored.
He was about as close to Mr. Good Enough as she’d found, but an inner voice kept whispering she wouldn’t be happy settling. And to be honest, she didn’t want to be known as Mrs. Tern Coate.
Man, he’d been fun.
"I thought you were in Peru climbing the Andes," she said, staying just out of reach. A lot of good that did her, as he took a step forward and swung her around in a tight clench.
"I was until this little adventure presented itself. Damn, but it’s good to see you." He followed the swing with a dip and planted a searing kiss on her lips. When he’d righted her, she was dizzy, flushed, and half tempted to follow up on that kiss. But she knew better. Lucky was a gambler, not only with his money but his life.
* Those of you who have read DREAMWEAVER already know that DEATH CACHE will change Lucky's life forever.
They are a fun, wild bunch and being stuck with them, along with Gage--the man Tern is currently in love with--will test her in ways she never thought possible.
Tomorrow you will met Nadia Hanson, Tern's best friend.

I'd like to hear what you would do if you walked into a room and all the men you've dated where present conversing over drinks.
Would you tuck tale and run, or brazen it out?
