Please join me in welcoming Mickie Sherwood to The Second Half today! Mickie is the author of Cherished Moments, a new sweet romantic suspense.
Senator Jordan Dupré is reluctant to revisit her past. That thought crumbles at the sight of Deacon Burke. His commanding presence and charming smile transports her back to her youth. Back then, she kissed, loved, lied, and left him—taking a life-changing secret with her.
Scorned by Jordan’s dishonesty, Deke swears he never wants to see her lying face again. However, his heart knows better, and he never stops thinking of her. When Jordan’s husband is killed, Deke is summoned to the Senator’s aid, by an unlikely source—Unfortunately, he brings a secret of his own.
Will secrets from their past reignite their cherished moments?
Deke’s number rang a long time before he finally answered. "Hello."
"Deke, it's me." Her throat felt scratchy from screaming. Clearing it only aggravated the rawness. "Thank you for being there."
"You know, I'll always be here for you, Jay."
"That man probably would have strangled me to death if you hadn't shown up when you did."
"What? What man? What are you talking about?"
Confusion settled over Jordan. "Wasn't that you in the parking lot a few minutes ago?"
"Jay, you banished me from your place. Remember?" He growled the words.
"It was so dark," Jordan revealed to him. "Then, who?" Her senses reeled. "Someone actually tried to harm me."
"I'm on my way.” Deke’s voice was even keeled though she deciphered an undercurrent of agony.
"I'm not at the office."
"You’re not. Then, where the hell are you?"
Now, she interpreted frustration in his tone. “I’m on my way to the lake."
"The lake? Where the hell is that?"
"Use my number to sync my signal, Deke. You'll have the directions. It hurt so badly to talk. I have to go."
"Jay!” he yelled into the phone.
"See you when you get there." She whispered goodbye, and then ended the call.
