Melanie is a woman who handles her anxiety by preparing for the worst. She’s ready for any scenario—except love. Griffith is a man who has seen it all. Nothing surprises him until he meets Melanie. Can two people prepared for everything handle the uncertainty of love at first sight?
He paused at the bottom and sucked in his breath. Not a bomb shelter, not at all. Although maybe once it had been one. He looked left and right to get his bearings. Melanie didn’t strike him as the kind of person to lure someone into an underground shelter and murder him, but then again, he didn’t suppose most killers actually looked like lunatics.
At least the ones he had met hadn’t come across immediately as homicidal.
But as he stared at the stacked shelves, filled with all kinds of items he could imagine using in a crisis, he had to smile. The various items were homemade, taped and glued together, none of them in containers that would indicate she’d purchased them somewhere.
Sustainable living. It all made sense. She didn’t just somehow grow food in the heat; she did it to prepare for some kind of disaster scenario.
He grinned. Melanie looked like his favorite wet dream, and she prepared for disasters like a sensible, pragmatic person. He’d known lots of people who prepped for worst-case scenarios in his life. Post September 11th, it seemed the only smart thing to do. In his apartment in Connecticut, he’d kept medical supplies, duct tape, and non-perishable food in the back of his hall closet.
Melanie stood a distance away. “This is why I don’t take money from Victor. This whole organization is my baby. I came up with the idea. Up there”—she pointed at the ceiling—“are regular, environmentally friendly condos. Every person who lives or buys here participates in the farming endeavor. Each condo has a section like this beneath it, some place to go in the event of a disaster.
Assuming we don’t have to stay underground, the farm above will feed not only us but also a great deal of the community.”
Even as words sank in, he couldn’t help imagining the scene with her trying to handle feeding the community after an event so huge the world would need help existing without grocery stores. There would be chaos. She’d need someone there with a gun to protect her. His years of black ops might come in handy for something other than tracking down thieves for the drug companies.
What the hell had happened to his brain? This woman could barely stand him. Why did his imagination have to conjure up these musings of the two of them together?
He had to stay on track. “And Victor doesn’t support this? Doesn’t get it?”
As a teenager, Rebecca Royce would hide in her room to read her favorite romance novels when she was supposed to be doing her homework. She hopes, these days, that her parents think it was well worth it.
Rebecca is the mother of three adorable boys and is fortunate to be married to her best friend. They’ve just moved to Texas where Rebecca is discovering a new love for barbecue!
She's in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and tries to use all of these elements in her writing. She's been told she's a little bloodthirsty so she hopes that when you read her work you'll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. Rebecca loves to write series because she loves to see characters develop over time and it always makes her happy to see her favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.
