MidWeek Tease: Matching Gold Bands

Welcome to MidWeek Tease hosted by Angelica Dawson!

Today I'm offering another peek at an upcoming release. This is a dark romance titled UNYIELDING - Tortured Love 1.

Merrick and Lynda are in their suite before the reception. Lynda has been tripping over the train on her dress all afternoon, so Merrick is about to help her remove it before they go downstairs...

He sat on the bed behind her, and she felt him unfasten the tiny hooks that held the train on. He knew his way around dresses, and she almost made a quip about that, but decided it wouldn’t come out right. There was no reason to be rude to him.

“Thank you for doing this, although AndrĂ© could have followed us up here and taken care of it. Where is he, by the way?”

“In the hall downstairs, making sure everyone hates him well before the second course is served.”

Lynda laughed. There was no way to help it. She had no idea Merrick Dalton was this charming or funny.

“You know I’m right.”

“Oh, I agree. Where did you find him, anyway?”

He stood and deposited her train on the bed. “Are you kidding? He’s the most sought-after wedding consultant there is.”

“Oh, well I guess I wouldn’t know about that.”

He frowned slightly, and the quick burst of happiness she’d felt at finding common ground with her husband was gone, just like that.

“No, I don’t suppose you would.”

Well, thanks for reminding me I’m not in your league.

They locked gazes for long moments. Lynda was acutely aware of the huge four poster bed right next to them, the scent of his cologne, and the fact that they were now married. They had matching gold bands to prove it. They also were completely alone in here. If this had been a different situation, like a wedding with a husband of her choice, she’d have suggested they skip the reception entirely and instead enjoy this amazing suite.
