HDH #16

This week's list of participating authors can be found here:)

Thought you'd enjoy a snippet from Book #5, Endless Love:)  And yes, that's Mr. Romance Himself, Jimmy Thomas, on my cover.  Caitlyn's so lucky!

Caitlyn McCarty plans to marry her high school sweetheart, Bryan Johnson, and teach elementary school after graduating from Arbor University.  But after Bryan's life turns upside down with an unexpected turn of events, Caty begins to question her goals and every decision she’s ever made.

Peter Criswell fell for green-eyed, opinionated Caitlyn when he first met her.  However, her determination to hold onto a dream frustrates him.  Sometimes you meet the right person at the wrong time, and falling for a woman who’s caught between her parents’ wants versus her own desires isn’t always easy.

When the foundation of Bryan Johnson’s relationship with Caitlyn is tested not once, but twice, he faces the possibility of losing the only girl he’s loved since high school.  When Caty does make up her mind, will she stand by her man or run into the arms of another?

Bryan Johnson found it hard to breathe as he exited the highway and drove toward Caitlyn’s apartment. The news he was about to drop on Caty was going to devastate her, and he wasn’t sure how he was going to put it into words. She stood by me when I needed her last winter, maybe she’ll eventually forgive me for what I’m about say. He sat outside the house for a moment, looking up at the large windows on the second floor. Better get this over with. He got out of the car and retrieved his overnight case. Bryan walked up the stairs, his heart heavy.

Caty opened the door before he knocked.

“Oh, Cait,” he breathed, taking her into his arms after entering the apartment. “You look beautiful!” Which makes it even harder to tell you the truth.

“Thanks.” She blushed and kissed him. “Hungry?”

“Starved,” he lied, wondering when the time would be right for his news. He knew it was going to destroy her. “You cooked? What's the occasion?” He set down his duffel bag and followed her into the kitchen where a candlelight dinner for two awaited him. Bryan laughed, sweating a little. “Am I forgetting something here?”
