Mine is from my paranormal romance suspense, The Swan Cove Murders. My hunky hero, Nicholas, is with my sexy heroine, Lena, in the attic of his parents' home. It has been one year since his brother, also Lena's fiance, Earl, had died violently at the hands of a serial killer. Nicholas has come calling to go through Earl's trunk, like a visit to old memories. She has announced how much Earl had loved coming up to the attic and going through their things.
"He loved you so much."
Nicholas grabbed her wrist, holding her hand closer, catching a whiff of her sweet scent. He turned his head, placing a kiss in the middle of her palm and heard the heavy sigh escape her lips. He spotted the mixed emotions parage across her face. The scent of her strawberry lip gloss mixing with her lilac perfume made his head spin. He loved this woman, but Earl had professed his love for her first. Nicholas would have never battled his brother to win her heart.
