TITLE: Summer Lovin'
GENRE: Romantic Suspense
On vacation in Mexico, Stacy, the heroine, is being conned by her husband Nathan's enemy--Cortez. Near the end of the story here, the dive shop owned by a friend is broken into. And this is where things start coming together.
She wanted to go to her husband and smooth the lines that marred his forehead.
“Don't worry, we'll get him, Mrs. Gerard.”
She smiled. “I'm sure you will. Do you think he's here, Nathan?”
He shrugged. “Maybe. Look, let's not talk about this right now, okay? I have contacts set up to warn me if Cortez is on the move. I haven't heard from any of them. This could just as easily have been a regular, old-fashioned break in.”
Stacy held up her hands. “No problem. We'll clean up and spend the day lounging on the beach. Right?” If there was a hint of sarcasm in her voice, she could only hope he got the message.
“That's right, Stacy. Vacation as usual.”
Except this hadn't exactly been a usual vacation so far.
Picking up a pile of rumpled canvas, Nathan shook it out. A hat flew from the folds and flipped across the room. “Whoa, watch it.”
“Aiyee. Nice toss, Nate,” Jaime said with a laugh as he caught it in mid air. “I wonder whose it is.”
"Berries." Stacy sniffed the air again. “Give me that.”
Taking it from Jaime, she ran her hands over the rim and lifted it to her nose.
“Ew, Honey. That's gross.” Nathan's lips twitched as he help back a laugh.
“I know that smell.”
Nathan lifted a brow. “I'm not sure I want to know.”
Rolling her eyes, she held it out to him. “Berries. Go ahead, smell it!”
