SynopsisWhat would you do for your family?

When Carolina Castillo's once vivacious mother becomes ill, she gives up her singing dreams and comes home to Savannah. She'd do anything for her Mam+, even work at Fitzgerald House for the family she should have been part of. She'd even steal.

Carolina's decisions make perfect sense until she comes up against the immovable rock that is gorgeous FBI agent Sage Cornell. The honorable cop sees the world in black-and-white. He would never understand the difficult choices she's had to make, the secrets she's been forced to keep close. And he could never love a woman like her. Or could he?



A woman with gorgeous black hair had her head down on her arms. Beyond her was a small bench. Sage passed behind her, not wanting to disturb her nap.

Shoving her chair back, she slammed it into him. He went down like a roped calf.

“Oh, my God!” the woman cried.

His head rang. Pain stabbed behind his eyes.

“Are you okay?” She snatched his hand, trying to pull him to his feet.

“Wait.” He would fall over or faint if he moved too soon. “Wait.”

She crouched next to him. “I didn’t mean to knock you down.”

“S’okay.” He took deep breaths. “I just need…”

“What? How can I help?”

He tried to get his feet under him but stumbled.

“Let me.” She supported his elbow.

He clawed his way to his feet and finally looked at the woman who’d knocked him down like he was a bowling pin.

She was beautiful. Her dark blue eyes looked almost black and her skin was a luscious golden-olive color. And her hair? Black, curly and long enough to play peekaboo with her breasts. He swiped at his chin to make sure he wasn’t drooling.

“I’m so sorry.” She led him to the chair she’d abandoned. “I wasn’t paying any attention.”

“I thought you were sleeping.” A shard of pain slammed into him. He grasped his head and couldn’t contain the groan.

“You hurt your head.” Her fingers explored his skull.

The bump she was going to find was old, but her touch was cool and soothing.

“Is this the spot?” she asked.

“Yeah, but you didn’t cause it.” He swallowed back the nausea that always accompanied his headaches. “I was hurt a—” he couldn’t remember how long ago he’d been hurt “—while ago. I get headaches.”

“So does my mother.” She kneaded his shoulders, working her fingers up the tendons of his neck. “Does this help?”

“Yes.” He groaned. “That’s…good.”




Five Favorite Movie Scenes
by Nan Dixon


Thanks for having me! Oh wow. You’re testing my movie memory!

I have fallen in love with HIDDEN FIGURES. There are so many wonderful scenes in the movie, but my favorite is when Al Harrison (Kevin Kostner) wants to know where Katherine Johnson (Taraji Henson) has been. And she confronts him about NASA’s segregation. It’s fantastic. I love it when heroines stand up for themselves and injustice.

HUNGER GAMES. When Katniss volunteers for her sister. When I read the book, I sobbed. Also, in CATCHING FIRE when Katniss and Peta are sitting on the beach and Peta says “no one needs me.” And she says. “I do. I need you.” Sigh….. and of course they kiss.

I just watched AUSTRALIA. So the scene that stuck with me—Hugh Jackman all wet. I can’t even remember if there was rain or what. Just…Hugh Jackman. Do I need any other reason to love that scene?


BRIGADOON. I love musicals. I was in lots of musicals when I was performing. I played Bonnie Jean, the girl who gets married and the dancing lead, in a production that was a benefit for a hospital in the town where I grew up. Heady stuff when I was in high school and most of the cast was in college or older. I love any scene with Gene Kelly and Cyd Charisse. The choreography is incredible and the chemistry between them wonderful.


And another Gene Kelly movie—AN AMERICAN IN PARIS. I love Leslie Caron and Gene Kelly in the ballet in the movie. It’s incredible. Seventeen wonderful minutes of dance, music and love. And the Gershwin music is so memorable. Again, there is chemistry and such fabulous dancing and choreography. Gene Kelly was the choreographer. And a lovely happily-ever-after. This is only a short segment. Dancing in a fountain. Again….sigh….
