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 nodded. “I hope it was okay for me to come. It was important to me to see for myself that she was okay.” Smiling, he caressed the dog’s face. “She’s better than okay. Thank you, Doctor.” 

The doctor beamed at him as though he were an honored guest inste ad of an ex - con come to see a dog. “Of course it was okay. I hoped you would come to see her. Won’t you come in and have something cold? It’s warm today.”


This week
“Yeah, I’d like that. Thanks.”

Caleb followed her into the clinic, noting with approval that it seeme d clean and well kept. A big yellow cat lay in the sun on a deep windowsill. The staff smiled at him with friendliness too. Warmth spread throughout his veins. After a dreadful start in life, Peaches had gotten lucky.

The doctor took him into her office an d removed two soft drinks from the small refrigerator behind her desk. “What do you think of Peaches?”

At the sound of her name, Peaches gave the doctor one of those soulful looks that she used to give him, but her head still rested on his knee. “I think s he looks wonderful. You’ve done everything that needed doing for her.”

The doctor smiled as if his compliment really did please her. “Thank you. We tried. It took a while for her to heal, but with the groundwork you laid we thought we could help her, and w e did.” She took a sip of her drink. “Have you decided what you want to do now that you have your freedom?”

Caleb shrugged. “I don’t know yet. I just got out of prison yesterday.”
