Sneak Peek Sunday – Fiery Bride week 7

Here we have the next six paragraphs. When last we left Maggie and Caleb they were being accosted by another one of Maggie’s clients, Martin Butler. Be sure and leave me a comment today. I’ll give one lucky commentor a copy of the first of the Matchmaker & Company series, CAPITAL BRIDE. If you are in the US, it can be a print copy, international will be an ecopy only.

Maggie sucked in a breath, “That’s how he got the money for Mary’s doctors.” She couldn’t really blame Mr. Sinclair. His wife, Mary, needed the treatments or she was going to die. If it was someone Maggie loved, she’d have done everything possible, as well. She looked over at Mr. Butler. His shaggy gray hair hanging lank around his collar and his long silver beard lying on his chest. His eyes sparkled with mischief or something more sinister she wasn’t sure. She was sure that if she’d been Beatrice she’d have bolted, too. “You lied on your application and therefore our contract is null and void. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have an appointment with Mr. Black.”

Maggie took Caleb’s arm. “Shall we?”

Caleb scooped up both her bags in one hand, “We shall.”

They’d walked about half way down the platform when she stopped and turned back. Martin Butler stood there watching them, hands clenched into fists. The look in his eyes along with the long hair and beard gave him a feral appearance and somewhat frightened Maggie. She was glad of Caleb’s assistance.

“You can let go of me now.”
