All they wanted is a nice, perfect, romantic honeymoon—every newlywed’s dream of celebrating love and intimacy in seclusion.
Richard opened his eyes slowly. Smiling, he gazed tenderly at Megan who was snuggled in his arms, sleeping like a baby. They were in the bedroom, after having spent their first night as husband and wife.
Four months ago, they met under strange circumstances, when he saved her life from killers hired by her crazy-junkie grandfather who wanted her wealth all to himself. Since then, Richard had put her under his protection, having been smitten by her beauty, intelligence, and yes, her quirky temper. Despite their initial animosity and different backgrounds, they found themselves falling for each other as together, they escaped death from the hands of her grandfather, inadvertently putting an end to a drug cartel and its notorious drug lord. Their serendipitous encounter also brought justice to his brother’s death and the discovery of the nephew he had long been searching for.
Each day they had been together only deepened their feelings toward each other, and after the first month, they were already talking about marriage. Their families and friends approved and were truly ecstatic.
At least, their friends on his side. Those rich, snobbish “friends” of hers led by “Her Highness” Melanie Stockton, who always treated him like he’s going to run away with Megan’s money, had argued that they’ve only known each other for a short time and suggested they wait for a year or so before taking the plunge.
