Until Now…

From Christina: As I work on the third book of “The Sunset Series”, I’m going to be sharing the story here. I’ll be posting “snippets” each week on Sneak Peek Sunday, and from time to time, I might post additional snippets, as well.

To read from the beginning, click here:

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

The story is scheduled for release from Secret Cravings Publishing in January. Please be aware that what you are reading here will be unedited, unrevised work from a rough draft of the story. All comments, questions, and suggestions will be appreciated.

Those who’ve read “Not the Marrying Kind” will remember Emily Sue Phillips as the annoying little sister who loved sneaking about. In this story, she’s a very grown up young lady.  I hope you enjoy today’s snippet, and that you’ll continue reading as the story progresses.

If only she could toss out a casual, cutting remark and tell him that she most certainly had not been waiting for him. Of course, it would be a flagrant lie. Ben knew how much she adored him, and yes, he knew she’d been waiting at the depot for nearly an hour.

“Never mind,” she said, taking a few halting steps toward him. Her ankle hurt, but she could move about so long as she didn’t put her full weight upon it. “I can make my own way home. That’s what I was about to do when I fell.” She gathered her long skirts in her hands and lifted them a few inches, glancing down at her swollen ankle. A sigh slipped out.

Wagon“I saw you go down, but that big fellow got to you before I could. Sorry, Em.” Despite her insistence that she could get home on her own, Ben picked up her valise, then jerked his head toward the left. “The wagon’s parked over there by the mercantile. I need to pick up a few things while I’m in town.”

Tears stung Emily’s eyes. She nodded, grateful when the tall, handsome young cowpoke with the reddish hair and beautiful golden eyes came to her and extended his arm.

“I’ll help you to the wagon,” he offered.

“Thank you.” She grabbed hold of him, awed as always by the powerful muscles, the strong, hard feel of his limb. Benjamin Brooks had grown a lot over the last seven years, maturing from a scrawny freckle-faced boy to a man whose good looks made every woman swoon. Had she not been so sure of his devotion to her, Emily would have died a thousand deaths from jealousy over the years. But Ben had never given her the slightest cause for concern nor the least reason to doubt his constancy. Until now.
