We know so far that Rocky ticked off drug dealers and had to fake his death so he can enter the witness protection program. Rocky called Aimee even though he wasn't supposed to and told her he'd bought a house for them. Aimee 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. A man who knows her name comes riding down the road on a horse and speaks to her. It's Cade McCoy, the man who helped Rocky fake his death so he can enter the witness protection program.  I've skipped some paragraphs where Cade and Aimee talk about how there's only one realtor in town, and she was the one who sold Rocky's house to him. Cell phones don't work in that place so Cade offered Aimee a lift on his horse. Today they reach Fortuna. I've skipped a few paragrahs where Cade tells Aimee that a big red truck belongs to Rocky, and a small Volkswagen belongs to the local realtor June. When they try to enter the house the door falls to the floor.



Excerpt:

“Hon!” he exclaimed. He grabbed Aimee’s hand and jerked her toward him. She flew through the air as if she had sprouted a pair of wings. The woman behind him squeakedthat was the only word for itand distracted Rocky. Aimee slammed into him, and the two of them crashed to the floor.

The fall didn’t hurt her much. After all, she’d landed on Rocky, whose breath left him in a little ‘whoof’ when his back hit the floor. It was the sound of Cade’s laughter in the background that brought a scowl to her face

“Shut up, Cade! We could’ve been hurt.” 

Blurb: 
Aimee Sherwood never dreamed that following her fiancĂ© into the witness protection program 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.

This house just isn't coming off well at all. At least Rocky seems happy to see her, if a little squished. :-)

She's in a lot of trouble. Please let her ride off into the sunset with the good guy.

That Rocky is clumsy or else easily distracted!
Did June sell him the house?

Nancy Gideon said...

Now that's how you do a prat fall! I'm with Cade on this one. Snort.

Veronica Scott said...

Always embarrassing enough to have a fall like that but then Cade laughing at her doesn't help. Great snippet!

As a professional wrestler, hopefully Rocky knows how to take a fall without getting hurt...

(In fairness to Cade, I think I'd've snickered too, as long as there wasn't a pool of blood forming under Rocky's head.)

Rocky is a smooth operator as always. I'd be annoyed at both of these guys, for getting her in this mess and laughing.

Amy Braun said...

At least no one was really hurt! :)

Dear me. I hope their homeowner's insurance is up to date.

LOL at the comments. When is she going to realize who the real good guy is? Right now, I'm not sure.
