We know so far that Rocky ticked off drug dealers and had to fake his death so he can enter the witness protection program. Last week Rocky called Aimee even though he wasn't supposed to and told her he'd bought a house for them. I'm skipping forward a few paragraphs to the time when Aimee is almost at Rocky's new house. She has car trouble, and is worried about how she'll get to Rocky's home. She's nervous about being stranded on a deserted road too.

Excerpt:


Five miles. Big deal. I can walk five miles.

She stepped out of the car just in time to see a man on horseback coming down the road. The animal had a huge, flowing, white mane and tail that streamed on the wind. Its bright eyes and erect ears made it seem as if the horse were enjoying the early spring day and wanted to go exploring. Dapple gray. Yeah, it’s a dapple gray. As the horseman approached, he reined his mount in and stopped beside her car.

“Why, Aimee Sherwood. What are you doing here?” 


Can you guess the identity of this mystery man? It sure isn't Rocky.

Blurb:
Aimee Sherwood never dreamed that following her fiancĂ© into the witness protection pro-gram would land her in a haunted house in a town that’s downright creepy. She’d have laughed if she had been told the guy who lives down the road might be her soul mate, not the man whose ring she’s wearing. Life in West Virginia is nothing like life in Los Angeles, but between bean ball battles with Marilyn Monroe, remodeling a crumbling farmhouse, and starting a new online business, life in the country is anything but boring.

I wonder if this is the man who will make her forget her idiot of a husband, who got her into this mess? Great snippet.
