Mark took her hand. His was warm and soft. It gave her a sense of security, though she knew that after today she probably wouldn’t see him again. As she followed him to the door, she imagined having a man at her side. A man watching out and caring for her. Someone to brighten her day. Someone to wake up to in the morning after having touched her all night.
Her gaze wandered over to little Mia. Even though her sister was mature past her eight years, she still needed her. Not only in regard to the simple things in life like cooking, washing, or helping her with school work, but the love a little child needed to feel secure, and someone she could trust. As the only person in the girl’s life, Sophie had become a kind of security blanket for her sister, and Mia needed her more than Sophie needed a man. That meant there was no place for a man right now or in the near future. And she knew all too well that men didn’t stay around to help. They came to have fun and then left. Her own father had. Mia’s father had. And Tyler had done so as well.
The chance to start life all over with the help of a stranger.
Twenty-two-year-old Sophie Levesque has been guardian to her eight-year-old sister Mia since their mother’s death a few years ago, and it hasn’t been easy. Luck comes their way when they inherit a small house in Hobart. Problem is, though, they don’t know and have never heard of Clara Bellinger, the testator. Settling into their new life, Sophie is still afraid it’s all a mistake.
Mark O’Connor, attorney in Hobart and the bearer of the good news for Sophie and Mia, curses himself for the lack of information about the testator. However, researching the questions gives him an opportunity to see Sophie again, and the more time he spends with the two, the more he realises that his life is missing something. And it’s not his casual lover Linda.
But then there’s Zach, Sophie’s sexy neighbour from across the road… and a very good friend of Clara’s.
Will unravelling the mystery unravel Sophie and Mark’s promise of a future?
