Finally got the sun back after weeks of thunderstorms and quasi-torrential rain. And luckily, for once, the temps are not scorching (at least, not yet! It's 28C this morning, just warm enough to relax).
And I'm planning to relax with some good reading and catching up on some awesome snippets posted by Six Sunday Refugees. Lol, we still haven't decided yet what to call ourselves other than SSS Refugees, but I like this name. What do you think?
So, for a few weeks now, I've been highlighting excerpts from the heroine, Leila's, POV in this story. But a one night stand has to involve two people, innit? Who's the other half of this equation?
None other than her estranged husband, the man who saved her from a life of abuse and made her his... only to abandon her the next morning. Why did he leave, and drop her off in Mauritius? He sounds like a right a*sehole, innit?
But the truth is not what it seems, and Khalid Al-Nadir does appear to have redeeming qualities. Read on for a peek into his dilemma.
You’re already in Hell. He didn’t deserve anything good after bedding Leila, implying he’d look after her, and then abandoning her. He forced his eyes shut, then blinked and stared through the windshield. He couldn’t think of her, not now. When he stopped at a red light at the entrance of Grand Baie, temptation lay just a mile away. If he turned left, he’d be at their house in less than five minutes.
But he couldn’t go there. Leila deserved a new beginning and happiness. Everything she wouldn’t get as his wife. If she ever learned the truth, she would despise him, and he wouldn’t be able to bear her cold contempt. One glimpse of her, and he had lost the heart he never suspected he had.
