A man who loves solitude.When he sees the sexy mountain woman fishing on his property, other impulses take over. The ones that want a better look. What can it hurt?There are people who live every moment to the fullest and Dove Solomon is one of them. She can hook a line, gut a fish, and pitch a tent. She also sings like a fallen angel.The handsome man that just dropped into her life intrigues her in a way no one else has. He’s an introvert, she’s an extrovert. But there’s no denying how drawn they are to each other. Two people destined by fate to be together, no matter how different they are. The one thing they can agree on? Opposites attract.
Excerpt The River In Spring by Leslie Pike
Can you be called a Peeping Tom if you’re on your own property? Either way I have no intention of looking away. Arrest seems a small price to pay. Besides, the stranger has to take some of the blame. Yesterday, even from a distance, I could see the woman’s part in my undoing as a lifelong introvert. What made her guilty couldn’t have been more obvious.
It was the honey colored skin-tone, forcing me to come up with descriptions like honey colored. The blonde hair, escaping from under the wide-brimmed hat as she fished. One long wavy strand, and how it made this man’s imagination swell. I become bold in my dreams. In bed last night I thought about the sun-kissed curl. How I would wrap it around my finger and give it a tuck under the brim. Yes, I’d like to tuck her.
That is why I’m heading back to the high spot at the edge of the spread, binoculars around my neck. That detail alone would prove premeditation. At times being an attorney is a buzzkill. Feigning ignorance no defense. There is no hiding from the fact behaving like a stalker is wrong. As easy as it was to reach that ironclad conclusion, I am just as sure to ignore the inconvenient truth. In this case I will do what I want. Nobody will ever know.
