♥ Happy Sunday ♥
After spending a few weeks in Tasmania and thought the place deserves a story. It’s still very much a WIP, but hopefully it’ll turn into something really good. I moved into Alex’s POV today.
Alex Mattys’ arms instinctively went around her waist. Her scent filled his senses. A sweet floral mixed with citrus smell. He liked it. Why hadn’t he noticed it earlier today?
He raised his brows. “Are you the one who’s running?”
She blew out a breath as she stepped away from him. Her heavy sigh told him if he wasn’t right with his assumption, he was at least close.
Her eyes met his. “Alex.” Tilting her head slightly, she said, “I’m not running, but trying to have a holiday. But it seems fate has different ideas.”
“Give me an hour and your car will be fixed.”
They both twisted around to look at Hans.
“I’ll just clean it up a little and do some checks,” Hans added.
“There you go. Dad saved the day. You’ll be able to drive off and enjoy your holiday.”
Looking into the distance, she bit her lip and remained quiet.
Alex stepped a bit closer. “May I ask whether there’s something else that is not going according to plan?”
The frown on her beautiful face told him he was spot on, but he didn’t know her and didn’t want to push it. Yet, something inside him urged him to. Wanted to know.
He scratched the back of his head as he watched his dad working away under the bonnet of the car when she replied in just above a whisper, “My accommodation for St. Helens was cancelled.”
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

Aha! So where is she going to stay? Will he have any intriguing suggestions?
Yes, he will !! 🙂
Her trip is running into a few complications all right! Lucky for her he’s there with a Dad who fixes cars and suggestions for lodging LOL. Enjoyed the snippet!
Thanks Veronica. Glad you enjoyed the snippet 🙂
Now that might be convenient if he and his dad happen to have a spare room!
You’re on the right track here 🙂 Thanks Aurora for stopping by.
I think at this point I’d declare my holiday cancelled and turn around and go home! (This is probably why I’ll never be a heroine in a romance novel.)
LOL … I’d be close to give up … BUT … she’s a tough woman 🙂
