Chapter One

Year 2100

Sex Squad Headquarters, Vermont, United States

“They call him Loverboy. He is six feet three inches and a hundred and eighty pounds of pure sex magnet. No woman can resist him.” Det. Jim McBride’s husky voice curled through the briefing room grabbing Detective Sky Kelley’s attention.

The two male detectives sitting beside Sky nudged each other playfully and chuckled at Jim’s description. Unfortunately, they weren’t taking this Loverboy fellow as seriously as they should be. At their interruption, a dark anger crept into Jim’s gorgeous brown eyes. “You two giggly boys have something important to share with the rest of us?”

The two detectives frowned and shook their heads in embarrassment.

Jim nodded with satisfaction, and then his intense gaze swooped onto Sky. His eyes softened a bit as he watched her, but the normal laugh lines at the corners of his mouth remained tight.

Bruised shadows hung beneath his eyes. Eyes that used to sparkle with desire for her. Now they held nothing but raw pain.

Hastily, he looked away, leaving her with the impression she was being dismissed as if she were just another one of his “giggly boy” detectives, instead of the woman he had planned to marry...up until a week ago.

Sky closed her eyes for a moment and tried to compose herself. Tears of regret burned at the back of her eyelids. She should have said yes to Jim’s demands that they have sex. It would have been so easy to put out that persistent need throbbing between her thighs. However, she wanted to wait until they were married. Unfortunately, she had said no one time too many and now she was alone.

This is my first translation with Nelson. I found he pays great attention to detail and caught several editing issues that others had missed. He pointed them out and I was able to correct. Very much appreciate his keen eye. :-) He is easy to communicate with and met his deadline with ease. I look forward to working with Nelson again.
