Excerpt from Ground Rules by Renée Swann:

"You're late," is the first thing
my sister says to me when she opens the door. Not “hello” or “I was worried,”
but always cutting to the chase.
“Yeah, I, um, forgot the cupcakes.” Or
rather, I ate the cupcakes and had to stop by the bakery for more. I should’ve
learned that lesson by now—always buy double—but I haven’t and most likely
never will.
“Well, come in. Rob’s already here.”
She seizes the cupcake box and leads me up
the hallway. “Jack’s friend. Hope you don’t mind; we invited him too.”
“Oh, okay.” I backtrack, tugging the bakery
box from her grasp. “This’s a setup, isn’t it?” To Cordelia, the fact I’m
twenty-five and unmarried equals her trying to find me a nice man to be with.
She never liked Martin, and it’s been exactly seven days since I dropkicked him
out of my life.
“Don’t be ridiculous. He’s married. And a
Christian.” Slinging an arm over my shoulders as she tows me through the house,
she adds, “He is handsome though. Don’t tell Jack I said that.” And as we step
out onto the rear veranda, she says, “Look who’s here!”
Jack’s lips quirk into a grin; arms coil
around my shoulders. “You ate the cupcakes again, didn’t you?” he whispers in
my ear.
My brother-in-law knows me too well.
The honey-eyed man at the end of the table is
staring at me. Do I have frosting on my face? After a moment, Jack leads me
over to him.
“This is the famous Becky,” he says.
“I’m famous?”
Rob smiles and offers me his hand. “Pleasure
to meet you.”
His voice sends tingles to my lady bits. I
want to lick that smile and kiss those lips.
He’s married. Hmph. My freaking luck.
“Lovely to meet you, too. I’ve heard nothing
about you.” I slide my fingers across his palm and he gives them a quick
“He’s a lawyer,” Cordy says, as if that
explains it all. “Wine?”
“Sure.” I take the seat adjacent to Rob as
she trots into the kitchen. “Lawyer, huh?” My eyes skirt all six-foot one-inch
of him, over the crisp white button-down shirt and gray trousers. I’d love to
take a peek under the suit.
“Yeah. My brothers and I own Gibbs Legal and
Financial Group.”
“Ooh, I bet you’re loaded.”
A snicker. “I guess I am.” He flashes me a
boyish smile. “So, since we’re talking paychecks…”
I sigh. “Why would I want money when I can have
He regards me curiously.
“I find you fascinating.”
