Given that today is Halloween, I really wanted to find a theme appropriate snippet to share. Unfortunately, The Man She Needed doesn’t include the first thing Halloween related. It does feature an impromptu paint party though, which was the closest thing I could find to a celebration. Hey, it’s got food and wine. That counts, right?
“Dina says she’s bringing wine,” Abby said when she hung up the phone, grinning. “We can’t have a girls’ night without wine.”
Norah laughed. “Of course not.” Hopefully adding alcohol into the mix wouldn’t have a detrimental effect on the walls getting painted, but at the moment, she wasn’t even sure she cared. This was going to be fun.
Dina and Quincy were waiting for them when they returned. “I’ve got wine,” Dina said when they got out of the car.
“And I’ve got chocolate,” Quincy added, nodding at the bakery box from Ange’s she was carrying.”
The Man She Needed is available for purchase. You can find it here.
Norah Waldon comes to Corbin’s Bend to start over after her husband of 10 years is killed in a freak accident. For the first time since college, she is on her own. She’s determined to fulfill her dream of owning her own bookstore, and for the first time in her life wants to live somewhere where she can be herself as she’s been hiding her desire for a DD relationship for far too long. Her late husband would have never understood. If she can get her bookstore off the ground, and maybe just maybe find an HOH who will take care of her the way she’s always wanted, everything will be perfect.
Enter Caine Landry the carpenter who is working on her bookstore. He brings out things in her she hasn’t felt in years. There’s just one problem. He doesn’t live in Corbin’s Bend and has no interest whatsoever in anything involving spanking. He had plenty of that growing up thanks to his grandfather and his belt. He can never do that to another person, no matter how he might feel about Norah.
Will their differences prove to be insurmountable or can Caine somehow find a way to become the man she needs?
