"I need to get the store restocked." He inched toward her. Slowly. Heaven help him if she balked and fled. He would never get her back then. She knew every nook and cranny of the island. She could hide from him for years. He had to get her to stay. His heart hammered against his ribs. "We both know Mother won't apologize to Mr. Lubeck for at least another month. I'm all alone."
He clamped his lips together, knowing the thought of others being lonely was one of her weaknesses.
She shook her head. A lock of dark hair swept over her cheek before coming to a stop on her shoulder. The straight black tress ended below her waist. "I'm sure you can find someone—"
Her refusal punched him in the gut. He didn't want anyone but her. Needed her at his side. He'd seen too much in Europe. And knew that she, and only she, could fill the pit hollowing him out.
And he could undo some of the damage his selfishness had done.
"Please." He held out his bare hand in supplication. Prayers chased each other inside his head. He'd promise anything. Do anything to keep her.
She sighed and trudged toward him. "I can help today and tomorrow, but I do have my work at the school."
Her lips contorted as if she'd tasted something bitter.
He had an inkling he had something to do with it, but couldn't puzzle out the cause. He had yet to reach the age when he understood women or their tender feelings.
Blurb: Her heart can't give him up. Her head can't trust him.
Everyone Phoebe Monpetit has ever loved eventually abandoned her. Even Gabriel Stephens, the man she thought she'd marry. For the last twelve years, she's muddled through alone, cobbling a life together.
Gabriel took the first opportunity to escape his family's constant fighting and rarely looked back. When war explodes across Europe, he learns what his cowardice has really cost him.
This Halloween, he'll use every trick he can to win back Phoebe's heart.
Will she keep her true feelings covered, or will she let Gabe unmask her heart?
