This week, my hook comes from Deja Vu. I’ve been thinking a lot about heroines lately. And Darcey is special – she isn’t in need of a knight in shining armor. In fact she’s dead set against the idea.
Her head popped up, bright eyes and a seductive smile. “You just want me at your disposal.”
He did. He wanted her all the time. He hadn’t felt like this since Melissa three years ago; an attorney he’d met at some event. In the end, Melissa hadn’t been able to deal with his work schedule and he hadn’t been willing to deviate from it.
But for Darcey.
He had rescheduled meetings, delegated authority, actually taken a vacation to be close to her and have those bright eyes shining down on him.
“I love you.” The words were expelled by the crushing sensation in his chest and he waited.
What he wanted was for her to say that she loved him as well. What he expected was an argument about the nothing serious rule. What she did was startling.
