This week I’m offering a bit from Chapter 1 of my April release Heartstrings, a contemporary western romantic suspense with a country music star hero and a Native American heroine. Last week we visited Seth as a four-year-old at his mother’s funeral, today we’re at another funeral–his father’s. But amost 30 years have passed since his mother’s death and this time he knows his father hated him.
The bitterness of hateful words his father yelled in a fit of rage settled upon Seth. His back hurt with a phantom sting from all the times the belt had hit him. The shotgun his father fired the time he returned after winning the talent competition blasted his ears. The memory album slammed shut, smothering the spark of grief.
He swallowed the anger and the urge to drive away and never look back.
He looked up to see Abby watching him. No, he wasn’t going anywhere.
At least, not until he claimed what his fear of becoming like his mother–washed-up and dead by age twenty-three–had denied him. The one person he’d let Mike talk him out of ever getting to know, by playing on his fears.
Next week we meet Abby–and she’s not too happy her old high school flame is back in town.
