Book: Next of Kin by Sharon Sala
Series: Rebel Ridge
Thick black hair and his voice is like warm whiskey on a cold night, broad shoulders and a muscular body with a long, lanky stride. He likes building things, and has created a decent business building handcrafted, one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture. He’s protective and loyal. When a misunderstanding separates him from the love of his life, even though he's unsure if they will ever be together again, he waits for her, knowing that no other woman could ever make him happy.
Their first kiss had been behind this very house. Beth remembered the warm feel of his lips on hers, and how it had started to snow as they’d quietly pulled apart. There had been a look in his eyes that she’d never forgotten. He’d wanted her in the way that a man wants a woman, but he’d never pushed. Instead, he had let Beth lead the way, giving her all the freedom she needed to feel safe with him. And when they’d finally made love that next spring, it had been magic.
The thought was horrifying. “Don’t say that, woman. Don’t even talk about dying. I just got you back. I’m not going to lose you, not ever again.”
“What do you want, Lilabeth?”
“To know if this means as much to you as it does to me.”
“If you’re looking for forever, you’ve come to the right place. Does that answer your question?”
