There is a simple truth Faye must share. But now is not the time. There are more important things on her mind like flying around the world in the line of duty. So when Jordan appears on her doorstep, she knows time is running out. Only she has no idea where to start. Besides, who would believe her?
Jordan Beckham knows there is something missing in his life money cannot buy. At the back of his mind, there is only one woman who he thinks is a perfect fit. When he finds Faye Cole in the most unexpected place, he knows what he must do to snag her for keeps.
Only Jordan has no idea what an emotional turn his life is about to take. Will the truth break them?

Just as Faye stuffed her clothes and shoes into the bag, the mobile phone on her Venetian mirrored bedside unit rang.
Flipping the phone open, she pressed the speaker button, while calmly folding her underwear.
“Hello, Faye here.” She said, without checking the caller identity.
“Hi Faye, it is Jordan here.”
Her hands folding the frilly underwear froze in mid-air. The skimpy material slipped to the bed, and then to the dark wood, laminate floor. Her heart stopped beating for half a second. His voice—oh his booming voice—could still make her quiver at age twenty-seven. Feeling quite unsteady on her feet, she sat her backside on the neat-as-a-new-pin bed.
“Hi Jordan,” she uttered coolly.
“I was beginning to think you didn’t remember me Faye. How are you? It was so good to see you after such a long time.” She looked around her gold coloured wall paper, her eyes focusing on the richer accent, blue colour she had recently injected to add luxury and interest to her neutral backdrop.
After keeping quiet for a long while, she sighed, knowing she couldn’t possibly play dumb forever. “I am good, thanks. Accept my congratulations on your multiple awards the other night. I didn’t get to speak with you before I left.” How hypocritical! She criticized her endeavour at being nice, as a sham as she heard his intake of breath.
“It was all unplanned really. The organizers heard I was in London and they decided to invite me. But now, I’m glad they did, because I saw you again.”
How charming! Why was he wasting his flattering skills on her? “Y-y-yes,” she stammered. Why couldn’t she stop thinking about him? And why had he always been the standard with which she measured every man she dated? Leaning forward, she wiped off an invisible speck of dust from the blue vase resting on her recently exposed and accessorized fireplace.
“Congratulations on your award! I’m extremely proud of you, Faye. I’ve stopped by your blog and dug up several magazines you write for. And, I can say the award is definitely well deserved.”
A glance in the framed wall mirror on the right side of her bed revealed her cheeks were a light red shade, mocking her resolve to remain detached. To her relief, Jordan couldn’t see how his words altered her skin tone.
“Thank you,” was all she could muster from her vocal muscles.
“Faye, can I make you an irresistible offer?”
Her fingers clutching the duvet trembled. Her heart skipped. “Yes, of course.” Her tone was obliging. I should be speaking curtly, she accused in her head.
