Excerpt:The heat crept up Yvette’s face at his comment. Christopher saw her pick up the safety card from the seat pocket in front of her and give it her undivided attention.
“You’re not blushing, are you?” Christopher said in awe.
“Of course not,” she denied hotly.
“Though I have to admit, I find the prospect thoroughly amusing.”
She swung her head around. “Oh really? And why is that?”
“Because you never glanced my way in school. You were too focused on your studies, your close circle of friends, and your late husband.”
When she didn’t have a snappy comeback for that, he knew his comment had hit home.
“You know in some ways, you’re nothing like I remember. And yet, some things are exactly the same.”
Yvette smiled. “Is that so? Like what?”
“I don’t know. Just things.”
It was Christopher’s turn to be evasive. There was no way he was going to mention that her beauty hadn’t diminished with time. If anything, the years had enhanced it. Yvette’s brown hair was longer now, and her sable-colored eyes were not hidden behind thick black eyeglasses. Her five foot, ten inch frame still supported the curves she’d had at twenty-one. The added bonus was that they were more ample now. Her golden brown skin was flawless, but it was Yvette’s smile that held his attention the most. That hadn’t changed in the eleven years since he’d seen her last. Though she had not associated with him back then, Yvette had left a memorable impression. She was not someone you could easily forget. And for her to be there in such close proximity on a plane for the next eight hours was a very welcome surprise.
