Beyond the Book: Flood

Now for a blurb and excerpt:

Blurb:
Drawn together by their love of animals, Aria De Luca and Caleb Hawkins burn for each other. They never suspected that malignant forces around them were successfully plotting Caleb’s ruin from the moment he entered her life. When the flood of a century strikes Aria’s hometown, an alienated Caleb is all that stands between her and catastrophic loss.

Last Week:
He drew a deep breath of the fresh air and noted that for the past three years he’d mostly missed out on the beauty of the springtime. From his cell he hadn’t been able to see even a sliver of the sky. The Department of Corrections initiative that had let him work at the animal clinic had been a lifesaver for him. If not for that escape from his cell, he had no idea what would have become of him, but he suspected it wouldn’t have been anythinggood. He loathed being cooped up and always had. 

He saw movement out of the corner of his eye. A big, yellow dog with floppy ears was following a slender, dark-haired woman from behind the building. Eagerness filled him. Peaches. The dog was Peaches.


This week
He called out and waved to the woman who turned and walked his way. All at once Peaches bayed and took off at a dead run in his direction. He held out his arms, and she launched herself at him, bowling him over, licking his face and whining while her tail wagged a mile a minute. “Good dog,” he crooned as he stroked her head and fondled her ears. “Good Peaches. I missed you.” Swiping his eyes, he hoped nobody was watching him make a fool of himself over a dog.

She looked great. Although she had some scars on her back, her coat shone. Her eyes were bright and clear, and she must have gained ten much-needed pounds. Her attitude was better too. He saw no trace of fear or aggression in her eyes.
