Quickly, Alice checked her appearance in the mirror. The hour spent on accounts and reports had done little damage to her hair, the complicated arrangement she’d braided into the ebony strands still under ruthless control. Her gown remained unblemished, but it was difficult to see any flaw in black, especially in such uncertain light.

She’d taken to wearing the shade, as was proper and right, after Seth had passed. Too soon her husband had been taken from her, but few recovered from a knife and a wicked-bad man wielding it. In those dark days following his passing, ritual had kept her grief from overwhelming her.

With the heels of her hands, she wiped at her cheeks. That was over and done, and five years had passed. Grief had lessened, but the day she’d been of a mind to wear color, she’d hesitated. If she continued to wear black, no man would forget she was Seth’s widow, and all things considered, it would make the running of a saloon a mite smoother. So, she made it that her wardrobe consisted of nothing but black. Black blouses, black skirts, black dresses…. Damn, she was mighty tired of black.

Rupert leaned against the wall next to the door. Mrs. Reynolds wore black, just as she had the night before. If the color was in deference to her husband’s passing, she wore it long after what was expected of a widow. Her husband had been dead, what? Five years? Six? In any case, she should have laid off the black long ago. Could it be she had another reason for such stark garb?

This was getting her nowhere fast. Annoyance marched through her, at his caginess, at her own damn fascination with a man intent on lying to her. “So, if you aren’t a fool, what are you?”

Removing his hands from his pockets, he moved toward her. Gaze steady on hers, he stopped close, so close she could see his eyes weren’t truly black but instead the darkest of browns. She froze, unsure what would happen but desperate to discover. He didn’t touch, did nothing more inappropriate than stand too close.

Then, he leaned down, and his lips brushed her ear. “Fascinated.”

Right, on with the hook itself! This is a smidge from FOOL’S GOLD, book the second in The Diamond Series:

Fool's Gold Cassandra Dean Western Escape Decadent Publishing
Expansively, Ethan exhaled. “A woman after my own heart. Careful, Miz Pearl, you keep anticipating my needs like this, and I just might have to court you proper.”

She snorted. “After all the fighting and fussing we subjected the town to? None would believe it.”

“Probably not. But I’d be moved to be convincing.”

“Of course you would.”

He arranged a pious look upon his features. “It would be the right thing to do. I like the town. I like its folk.” Hooking his fingers in her robe’s sash, he tugged her close. “I like you.”

“Do you?”

“Damn right.” And again he kissed her.
