Today’s Between the Covers is an excerpt from my book.
Bella waited until he did before she walked closer to the man. “Tasty Devil? I’ve never had it. What’s it taste like?”
“A devilish delight.” The man turned to her. “Strawberry and coconut heaven.”
“Hmmm… My favorite is the Angel Dream.” Bella opened her bag before she took out one of the wrapped candies then held it out. “Has coconut but not strawberry. It’s coconut with pecan, dipped in white chocolate. Tastes delicious.”
“Thank you.” The man took it. “I’ve never tried it. But I will.” He palmed it then held out his hand. “Morgan James.”
“Nice to meet you, Morgan.” Bella slid her hand into his.
Morgan held onto her hand and studied her. Bella didn’t try to get loose, instead waiting to see what he would do. She would be a willing participant in whatever he wanted.
“I have a good life. Nice, settled, and I don’t need any complications. And you have complication written all over you,” Morgan said.
“Really?” Bella glanced down at her orange T-shirt, black jeans and boots then back at him. She chuckled then smiled widely. “I don’t see it, but maybe you can see with your super sight. Well, Mr Morgan James, if you ever decide that you want to get to know complicated ole me, look me up at the supper club I work at.” She stroked her finger along the back of his then slowly disentangled from him. “Nice meeting you.”
She pivoted then walked away.
