Excerpt (part four)
Lacey wasn’t entirely sure it was possible to focus on something else or somebody else when Seth Salinger was around. At least not for her.
Back in high school, he had been tall, on the thin side, with that brooding, sexy aura that drove teenaged girls nuts. He was still tall but not what one could call thin—lanky, maybe. Lean, definitely. Muscled shoulders strained at the shoulders of the simple, white cotton button-down he wore, long, lean legs in faded denim. As he absently pushed his hair back from his face, she noticed his hands and wrists.
Bony wrists—one of them adorned with a simple watch with a black band, an ordinary piece that could be bought at Sears for $25. Beautiful hands, no rings, nails clipped neat, but not manicured—she was getting damn tired of looking a man who spent more time on his appearance than she did.
Seth was sexy as all get-out, but it didn’t come from a two-thousand dollar suit, hours spent at the gym, baking under some hot lights to get that warm golden tone to his skin. It was just him.
Damn, she bet he’d be fun in front of a camera. She already knew he photographed very, very well…although Seth wasn’t aware of it. Those pictures were something she hadn’t ever shown anybody and they were her best work.
If she had the chance to do it again, do it right instead of sneaking pictures from a distance, she wondered what would happen. Were those pictures another fluke? Like that night?
The pictures she’d taken of him were sheer magic, but it wasn’t a fluke. She could do it again. Something inside her, that nagging, itchy need for her camera, started to burn. A couple of hours—if she had a couple of hours, Lacey could do it.
She knew she could. A few hours and she could find it. Find that elusive magic that had danced just out of her reach for so long.
That was what she wanted—what she needed. Finding that magic, that heat, that heart.
Heart…a memory, this one much more recent, rose up to taunt her.
You do beautiful work, Lacey. But it lacks heart.
It wasn’t her work that lacked heart—it was her.
Closing her eyes, she suppressed a sigh.
Yeah. She lacked heart. She lacked heat.
