Happy Saturday everyone! I got signed up just under the wire this week. I’m sorry for those of you looking for a spanking scene. My latest release, Blessed Betrayal, is not really a spanking story like most of my other books, but if you want a feel good book that will take you through the darkness into an awesome HEA, this is the book for you.
Today’s snippet is from a pivotal scene in the book. Because of some of the twists in the story, I’ve purposefully held back some of the info, not wanting to give away too much, but I think everyone who reads the blurb figures out Cali’s husband cheats on her. Today’s snippet is the start of Cali finding out about his betrayal with a visit from the police in the middle of the night.
“We normally don’t recommend family members identify their loved ones when the bodies have been traumatized by high speed accidents, but we honestly would appreciate it if you could accompany us to the morgue.”
He hesitated long enough that Officer Jackson completed the request. “I’m afraid your husband wasn’t alone in the car at the time of the accident. His companion didn’t have any identification in the vehicle that they were able to find on the scene. If you feel up to it, we could sure use your help in identifying the other victim of the accident.”
Other victim. Accident. Cali’s mind was reeling. It was hard for her to focus. Had he been trying to come home tonight after all? If so, why had he been going in the wrong direction? And who was in the car with him? The officers gave her time to mull the devastating news around long enough that she started to formulate her own suspicions.
“It was a woman?” She finally asked, although it came out as more of a statement.
“I’m afraid so, ma’am. We came here unsure if anyone would be home. We thought perhaps it had been you in the car with him. Is there anyone else you can think of that he might have been with around midnight?”
Cali knew. She just knew. Still, it didn’t make it easier to say. “No one he should have been with, no.”
Never fear. Cali gets even. I’d love it if you’d check out the story, on sale here for only $.99 and I just signed it up for KU so you can even read it for FREE there.
Calista Bennett was supposed to be living happily ever after with her handsome husband, Kevin. But underneath the perfect exterior of their marriage lays an ugly truth Cali can’t admit to anyone.
