♠♠ OUT NOW ♠♠
The 3rd book in the Beginnings series was released in October, and I’d love to get “you hooked” with some snippets.
I’ve moved the story a little forward … this is when Jared meets Ivy, the heroine of this story. She’s left her boyfriend “to start a new life”
Jared pushed the button to lower the passenger window.
“Hi there,” the woman outside said.
Her pale face caused a little concern within him. Her face was strained despite the smile on her face, but her droopy brown eyes and moist forehead told him, she’d been out there for a long time and most likely tired to her bones.
There was something fascinating about this woman with the wild, curly, blond hair and brown eyes. Her eyes! Even in this brief moment, he was captivated by her chocolate brown eyes. So full of warmth, passion, and life, despite her tiredness.
He wasn’t sure why he had stopped. It was supposed to be a holiday for him. A getaway from his work and from people. His job was his solitude that came with it most of the times. However, after spending a day in Sin City and exploring the Hoover Dam earlier that morning, he was actually looking forward to a little distraction from his own company. It surprised him, yet an unusual emptiness inside begged him for some company. And he was brought up to help others. This was exactly what he was doing.
“G’day!” He stared at her and something tugged at his heart. Not that he wanted that. He had no room for women, let alone American ones. They were all on this earth to make life complicated, and with a mental eye roll, he thought of Mark who was constantly running around for Sophie or Hope, even though Mark’s wife was one in a million and little Hope was simply adorable, especially asleep.
“Ya know it’s dangerous to hitch a ride,” he said when she was still quiet.
She stared at him for a moment, but then replied with the typical American twang in her voice. “I know you said something, but I have no idea what.”
He chuckled. “It is dangerous to hitchhike,” he repeated with exaggerated pronunciation.
The woman stepped a bit closer to the window. “Are you from Austria?”
He let out a bark of laughter.
“Australia, I meant.” Judging by the colour rising up her cheeks, she was clearly embarrassed by the mistake.
Jared Fraser, a landscape business owner in Hobart, Australia, sets out for a holiday to the USA to travel along the Route 66 in a motorhome. Looking forward to his first holiday overseas, he’s excited as he prepares himself for the journey. But little could’ve prepared him for crossing paths with a beautiful hitchhiker.
Will he be able to put his past aside and grab onto happiness?
Ivy Bennett thought leaving her boyfriend would be the hard part. It doesn’t take long to figure out how wrong she was. As she struggles with making a new start in her life, the last person she expects to lead her to happiness is a laid-back Australian on vacation.
But she will have to say goodbye again. And not only to Jared.
