September is one of my favorite months. It's the autumnal equinox, my favorite times of the year. The stars are wonderful, Orion and Canis Major are easily seen. The sky is always a purple-blue at night. LOVE it!
It's also the month when my daughter was born. In fact, today is her birthday! We won't discuss how old she is, which means I'm even older...lol
Now on with the snippet. This one is from Jewel Cave, which is part of the Circles series of romantic suspense/mysteries.
It was time to back away from Dylan; what had been a casual friendship had definitely shifted to territory uncomfortable for Clint. He didn’t want to hurt Dylan’s feelings, though. He’d sent a few e-mails telling Dylan some of his pictures weren’t appreciated, but it did no good. The guy was either dense or stubborn. Clint’s strategy to cope with Dylan had become to overlook his unsuitable behaviors.
Clint knew nothing about Dylan’s family or the people who lived near him. As far as Clint could tell, Dylan was alone in the world, and his sudden attachment to Clint was starting to feel creepy. So, lately, Clint had been taking longer and longer to answer e-mails and tried to keep subjects of conversation as neutral as possible or focused on writing projects.
The pictures Clint deleted. Griff would flip if he ever knew about those photos, not that Clint would blame him in the least. He would have loved to share some of his other concerns about Dylan’s well-being with Griff, but Clint knew the man would turn Dylan into one of America’s Most Wanted in under a minute.
Such was the hazard of sharing his life with a US Deputy Marshal.
He’d made a vow to himself long ago he’d never use Griff’s job or badge unless there was a solid, valid reason. Someone he’d known for a few years all of a sudden annoying him online was not solid or valid in Clint’s mind. Clint kept reminding himself Dylan was lonely and had no family. He was merely one of those people who didn’t get the concept of boundaries. That didn’t make him a criminal, just socially awkward.
Jewel Cave is available on Amazon, in Kindle Unlimited and in paperback.
