Excerpt

I can barely speak now the waterworks are choking me, and my throat is tight from the pain I feel. I hear a knock on the door. I rush into my bathroom. I overhear voices. Eventually, I hear a knock on my bathroom door. God, I hope it’s not Brad. Shit.

“Marcy? It’s Will. Open the door.”

“How did you know I was in my room?”

“I noticed you leaving rapidly and Rachel following you. I knew you must’ve gotten her to talk—my lovely, big mouth future fiancĂ©e.”

“Don’t blame her. I actually figured it out on my own.”

“Figures…you’re as good as Liam always said. I’m sorry, honey.”

“You lied to me, didn’t you? You told me he knew how much I loved him, but he didn’t. He thought he was a moment of weakness and anger. The only reason I’d ever be with him was because I was hurt and devastated by Brad breaking my heart. That’s what he said, isn’t it? That’s what that bastard said. I can’t tell you how angry that makes me. If I saw him right now, I’d slap him across his face so hard…”

“Marcy, I didn’t lie to you, honey. I promise you. Those things Rachel told you he said were before. That was the day you called. What I told you happened later.”

“You’re saying he finally did accept it and realize how much I loved him?” I ask with tears still drowning my eyes and face.

“Yes, he finally did, but then…”

“I see. Rachel said you begged him to call me and explain it was her that answered the phone that morning.”

“I did, and I did more than that.”

“She told me you almost had a physical confrontation with him.”

“I see she told you a lot of things. Marcy, I know how good you were for him. Him leaving you was the stupidest thing he’s ever done and that’s saying a lot because he’s done a lot of stupid things. He’s just so stubborn. I couldn’t make him see what a mistake he was making. Even Rachel tried to talk to him, and she was scared to death of him when he was angry.”

“Yeah, I know how she felt. It took me a long while to stand up to him. Now, I’d like to see him. Now, I wouldn’t care how angry he got. I’d kick him where the sun doesn’t shine.”

Will grins. “I believe you would. I wish there was something I could say or do to ease your pain. That’s why I didn’t want you to know these things. I knew it wouldn’t help.”

"Actually, you’re wrong in one respect. Knowing it was Rachel who picked up the phone that morning helps me more than you realize.”

About Linda Burson

Linda Burson
Linda Burson, a native of Pennsylvania, but long time Connecticut resident, has been writing ever since she was a teenager. She started out writing memoirs and continued writing by attempting several nonfiction pieces.
After attending college, pursuing other interests, and traveling, a lot of Linda’s free time was spent reading mysteries, romance, and women’s contemporary novels.
After several attempts at writing nonfiction, but having life get in the way, she put her passion on hold again. She gave up writing to focus on raising her daughters, being a wife, running her own custom computerized embroidery business and taking care of her dog, a Lhasa Apso named Nathan.
After a serious bout of breast cancer, Linda eventually closed down her business after almost fifteen years. She decided it was time to attempt writing again. This time, however, with nothing to distract her, she decided on tackling fiction, a contemporary, commercial romance with a dark edge.
In January, 2013, she sat down with her laptop and started writing notes about how her novel would progress. After that, the writing began and it never stopped. Before she was aware of it, her idea of a single book turned into a trilogy, which turned into a much longer series called the MARCY SERIES. There are a total of 13 books in the series.
When asked about inspiration, Linda has this to say: “Nobody really inspired me to write, but I do remember my mother and father always saying ‘anything you put your mind to you can accomplish. Don’t ever let anyone tell you, you can’t do something.’ Having the support and encouragement of my family is also important.”
Linda is now in the process of writing a new thriller novel, a short story, and has just completed a mystery called Murder Among Friends, which is due to be published April 15, 2018. Her seventh book in the MARCY SERIES is due to be released mid 2018.
