Safe at Home
Warm Springs Trilogy #1
By- Christina Kirby
Genre- Romantic Suspense
Driven by fear and desperate to protect her family, Samantha is forced to leave Chicago and everything she’s worked to achieve, only to start over by tossing a dart-at-the-map. The Georgia townsfolk’s true Southern charm is the unexpected prescription needed to heal her soul, and the sexy carpenter who touches her heart are distractions she didn’t plan on, but they might offer her a chance at a new life, if she can let go of her past.
Town heartbreaker, Spencer Malloy, isn’t looking for anything serious. His days are perfect working as a contractor, attending his nephew’s baseball games or taking him fishing. He never expects to fall for the big city girl, Samantha. She’s not his type, timid and closed off, but in her unguarded moments, he’s intrigued by the woman he can’t get out of his mind. The urge to get closer to her grows stronger each day, and when the shadow of evil resurfaces, he vows to protect Samantha, even if it means abandoning his home and joining her on the run.
When confronted by the man who’s bent on revenge, Samantha must choose between running again to save the people she loves, or if she has the strength, to stay and fight for her new life.
Jenny met his eyes and smiled. He’d only have to lean in a few inches and her perfect pink lips could be his. His eyes rested on her mouth and a rush of desire flooded his senses. He tore his gaze away and scribbled his name where directed. He needed to get out of the hot room.
“Now, if you’ll pass the pen to Jenny, she can be our witness.”
He held his hand out and Jenny’s fingers brushed his as she reached for the pen. Her eyes flicked up to his and held a moment longer than necessary. The room’s temperature shot higher.
The lady at the end of the table cleared her throat. Jenny nipped the pen from his hand, signed her name with a flourish, and slid the paperwork to the end of the table.
“I’ll just run and make a copy of all of this. Hang tight for one minute.” The title agent left them alone in palpable silence.
“So–” Jenny started.
“How–” He grinned. “Sorry. You go.”
“I was just going to ask you how you’ve been.” She laced her fingers and leaned her elbows on the mahogany table. “Is Avery still around?”
“Yeah. She’ll be here another few weeks.” He drummed his knuckles in quick succession and glanced over his shoulder. There was still no sign of the title company worker. “We’ve spent the last week painting Honey’s house. It needed it. And, my parents are coming for a visit in a couple weeks.”
“You better buy some furniture.”
“I’ll get right on it.” Another awkward silence descended over the room.
“I hope you like the house. You only saw it once.” Jenny squinted as if waiting for it to occur to him how insane the entire situation was. “I mean, it’s beautiful and there’s so much potential–”
He held up his hand. “It’s great, really. I knew you’d pick the best house. I wasn’t worried.”
“Well, that makes one of us.”
“You should have more confidence in your abilities.”
“It isn’t a lack of confidence,” a hint of temper flared in her voice. “We’re talking about your home. What if I’d picked one you didn’t like?”
“It’s just a house.”
“It’s not.” She looked at him with wide eyes. “It’s where you’ll spend your time and make a life.”
“It’s a house. The people who live in it make it a home.” He dropped his gaze and watched the reflection of his fingers in the table. “Besides, it doesn’t matter much anymore.”
