BECAUSE YOU CAN’T GO HOME AGAIN
BY MICHELLE LYNNE
It’s been years since Kelsey fled Green Villa, seeking independence from her broken heart. Now she’s back, facing the man that left her devastated while fighting to prove her innocence from a crime she didn’t commit. Battling her inner desires that could lead to her ultimate downfall, Kelsey struggles to accept the time she has left and tries not to get herself killed in the process.
The worst day of Nathan’s life comes back to haunt him when the one woman he can’t have walks back into his life. Discovering the trouble she’s in, he vows to save her from the unknown person who’s fixed on destroying her. And this time, Nathan’s playing for keeps.
BECAUSE YOU CAN’T GO HOME AGAIN
BY MICHELLE LYNNE
Kelsey was just about to go look for Amy when she heard a voice very close to her ear that caused a tendril to stir against her neck. Shivers went through her body when she recognized whom the voice belonged to.
“Easy with that champagne, beautiful, it’ll go straight to your head.”
She slowly turned around and looked up into Nathan’s piercing, dark gaze as he towered over her. He was more handsome than she remembered, but the changes in his face and body made him seem even more confident and compelling. Her eyes greedily consumed his robust appearance. His waist was lean in contrast to his broad shoulders and muscular arms. Even the material of the tux failed to hide his large frame. Nathan’s hair was as black as his father’s once had been and was neatly brushed back off his forehead. His dark eyes seemed to have hardened further over the years, which gave him an even more intimidating look. As they roamed slowly down her body, he let a smile tug at the corner of his mouth.
“What? You think this is my first time drinking champagne?”
She saw the exact moment when he realized who she was. His grin faded as his eyes went from teasing to alarm. Nathan’s jaw slackened, and it appeared his composure was completely lost.
He swallowed hard before he whispered, “Kelsey.”
He saw her sly grin before she took another sip of champagne. Earlier that evening when he had first seen her, he couldn’t help but be captivated by her. Even without fully seeing her face, Nathan knew she was the most beautiful woman in the room, with curls spilling from the hair piled up on her head and a body that was slender with curves in all the right places. She moved gracefully through the crowds as she was being introduced to most of the guests, leading him to assume she was new in town.
Now looking intently at her angelic face, he could see all the details he missed that gave away her identity. He could see the freckles sprinkled lightly across the bridge of her nose. Kelsey’s lips were the same as he remembered, her lower lip being slightly fuller than her top; they had always looked inviting. And the striking eyes that haunted him in his dreams. The eyes that, at the moment, appeared more grey than blue. He would never be able to forget those eyes.
