About When It Rains - Rainwater, Texas Book 2
Kendall Cochran is done with her ex-husband until he breaks into her house looking for something she doesn’t have. That’s when long time friend, Marcus Matthew comes to protect her. However, Kendall doesn’t need rescuing.
When they learn what her ex wants and why, Kendall and Marcus work together to bust up a gang searching for evidence that their leader murdered a high ranking official.
Will Kendall and Marcus make it out alive? Will these long time friends learn it’s more exciting to be lovers, or will they play it safe and keep things the way they are?
Her face warmed. Why describe a date with Marcus as stinking? There was nothing stinking about Marcus. No, it was just her fears of getting out there again and the possibility of ruining a relationship she had come to depend on over the past five years. Even so, she planned to put a safety net in place. After years of abuse, that’s how she dealt with things that might hurt and threatened her way of life. She hardened herself and created an escape route to safety.
“Thanks Rachel, I can take it from here.”
She hung up and turned to the mirrored wall in her salon. Before her stood a woman who’d walked through the fires of hell and came out on the other side with a few scars, but her sanity intact.
Nothing beat Bobby Joe when it came to scary, and she’d taken care of him.
With renewed determination, she stubbornly put her fears aside and sent Marcus a text on what time she’d be ready for their date. Creating her exit, she suggested they meet up during happy hour at The Night Life bar in Denton. That way, if things became awkward, they’d only be uncomfortable about an hour.
Since Rachel’d returned to Rainwater and reconnected with her ex-boyfriend, Sheriff Lucas Quinn, the four had been hanging out a lot lately. She had her suspicions that Rachel had something to do with the whole foursome gang, but even so, it was nice getting to spend more time with Marcus. She hadn’t realized how much she’d missed their friendship over the years.
Still, strange how Rachel rarely missed an opportunity to encourage her to loosen up, let life happen and give Marcus a chance. She would do that, because Marcus really was a great guy, but she simply couldn’t surrender all. Not right now. Deep inside she wondered if she’d ever be a hundred percent whole again.
She locked up her shop, got in her oven-temperature car and headed home. The whole while she tried ignoring her shaky palms, the perspiration on her upper lip, and the dampness of her silk shirt. She could do this. After all, she and Marcus had been good friends since the fourth grade. Even if there were no sparks, there would still be good conversation. What could possibly go wrong?
The Contemporary Romance Series
For as long as she can remember, Geri Foster has been a lover of reading and the written word. By the seventh grade she had worn out two library cards and had read every book in her age area of the library. After raising a family and saying good-bye to the corporate world, she tried her hand at writing.
To her surprise, she won a couple of contests, hooked up with a really great critique group and her writing career was well on its way. She spent several years studying her craft and developing her voice.
Action, intrigue, danger and sultry romance drew her like a magnet. That’s why she had no choice but to launch her published career with action-romance suspense. While she reads every genre under the sun, she’s always been drawn to guns, bombs and fighting men. Secrecy and suspense move her to write edgy stories about daring and honorable heroes who manage against all odds to end up with their one true love.
To keep the serious side of life at bay, Geri likes to write sexy short stories for her fans. In the Women of Courage series, Geri explores the deeper, darker nuances of life and relationships in small-town mid-century America.
