Natasha had been so determined to use roses, but in the end she’d listened to his advice, and chosen November Lilies. They were everywhere, including the bouquet, and the arrangements came off stunning yet humble. Exactly what she’d told him she wanted.

“Thanks. I thought so, too,” he replied. “Had to dig deep to remember how to do all of it.”
