To have and to hold—
until the case is solved?
When an undercover assignment pairs laid-back Florida detective Dante Matthews with by-the-book cop Eloise Archer, he knows it won’t be easy. And not just because they’re competing for the same promotion. Now they’re living together under the same roof, and it’s getting harder to ignore his deepening feelings for his “wife.” Can he convince Eloise to partner up—for life?
“How long have you been married?”
“We’re newlyweds,” Dante said, slipping his arm around her waist to tug her closer, wrapping her in the cocoon of his spicy cologne. She fought the telltale shivers she was sure would give her feelings away if Dante noticed.
“I remember those early days,” a woman said, grinning at her husband. “Every year we celebrate at the first place we met. Where’d you two fall in love?”
Eloise glanced at Dante. He met her gaze with a blank. Oh, no.
“It would have to be at the park,” Dante said.
“At sunset, right, honey?”
His expression warm at her answer, he said, “I’ll never forget the sun setting and the last rays of light washing over the sky while you stood looking out over the water.”
Hot tears gathered behind her eyes. How sweet. If only it were true.
“When are you starting a family?” Betsy asked, a knowing smile on her face.
“Whoa.” Dante held up his hand. “We’re in no rush.”
Eloise ignored the sting in her heart. “Where’s Baxter? He’s such a cutie. I thought for sure he’d be on your hip again.”
“With my folks.” Betsy hooked her arm through her husband’s. “We’ve got a free weekend.”
“You know. Getting someone to watch the kids so we can be together without interruptions.”
“Makes sense,” Eloise replied, not sure how else to respond. She hadn’t been in any serious relationships to need together time, let alone a breather from children.
“You two don’t have to worry about that right now, but once the kids come? You can’t wait for couple time.”
Dante squeezed her. “I think we’re good.”
As the group began to dissipate, Eloise swallowed. All of this seemed so…normal. She’d miss this when she went back to her old life.
