First, I apologize for the misplaced menu above. I’ve been trying to update my blog, but between a school project and going out of town this weekend, I ran out of time. Grrr.
I’m continuing on with my soon-to-be-released women’s fiction novel, The Lone Wolf, out December 2nd from Evolved Publishing.
After her husband’s infidelities are revealed, Kasey Sanford just wants to rediscover who she is. After an abusive childhood and years as a career soldier, Andrew Adams just wants someone to tell him that he’s doing the right thing with his life. When their paths cross, Kasey and Andrew embark on a tumultuous journey that demonstrates just what they’re willing to do to save the ones they love.
Last week, Kasey arrived home to find pictures of her husband in bed with another woman. In this scene, he’s just arrived home from work.
I pulled away and thrust the letter and pictures at him. Trying not to shake, I said in as level a voice as I could manage, “Someone stuck these in the door today.”
His brow wrinkled, then his eyes widened as he read the letter and saw himself in the photos. Surprise was conspicuously absent; he’d known I would find out, knew of the woman’s ultimatum.
That realization channeled my jumbled emotions into pure rage.
“What’s going on, David?” I asked in a voice as smooth and deadly as ice.
He glanced at me, then looked away and sat down on the couch. He was thinking hard, going into lawyer mode with himself as the defendant this time, weighing his words against the truth and what I’d believe; it meant he was hiding more.

She’s a little calmer than I think I would be. I love how you described the husbands reaction. Great job!
WOW! Terrible hurtful situation. You described the scene so well, my stomach clenched. Good eight.
She seems to know him so well, surprising that she was surprised he cheated…an intriguing story and a terrific snippet!
Yeah she’s calmer than I would be too! I like how she knows *how* he’s thinking, if not exactly *what*. Suspenseful and engaging eight.
Ugh…so there’s more. I hope she gets it out of him. She’s calm, but I suspect with a lawyer husband you learn to balance your emotions a bit.
Good use of the 8’s in keeping us guessing! Well done.
Loved the descriptive words smooth and deadly as ice. Very nice.
Uh oh. Really feel for the heroine here.
