SOMETIMES ANGELS COME IN HUMAN FORM.
Kaitlyn Summers is heartbroken.
When she receives an invitation to spend Christmas with her family on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, she feels it may be the perfect medicine.
She throws herself into helping her sister’s struggling art gallery, even taking a temporary job for extra money by looking after a little girl from her nephew’s school. She also begins to paint again, something she’s been unable to do since her breakup. It’s tempting to stay on Kauai, but she has obligations back in Los Angeles.
Life gets more complicated when circumstances keep putting her close to Leonardo Medici. Not only is he drop-dead gorgeous, he’s a local celebrity. But Kaitlyn can’t shake the feeling he’s hiding something.
Should she believe the rumors that he’s romancing half the island’s single women?
Or is the random sound of wind chimes when he’s close-by a sign that an angel is near and the secret to her happily ever after?
I pressed on “Beast of Burden” by the Rolling Stones and began to sing. This time I stamped my paint-coated hands on the canvas to the rhythm of the beat. Then I added blue and yellow and smeared it all over.
My gooey hands moved in circles while colors mixed. I didn’t care that it looked like someone had vomited on it. Art was art. I sang and swayed my hips from side to side, paint splattering on the sheet, having the time of my life. I hadn’t sung and laughed so hard in a while.
I thought I heard a door slam. No one should be back here unless Stella needed something. I turned and smacked into something hard. Not something, but someone.
My hands smeared with multicolored paint, had splatted flat against on a pristine, white button-up dress shirt, right over a set of nice, hard pecs. I peered up into familiar chestnut colored eyes growing wider and angrier, as the scent of cedar and pine enveloped me.
How long had he been standing there? Mortified, I flushed with heat and released a soft whimper.
