Who needs love when you have money?
It used to be enough, but now it’s not.
Not since he walked into my life and made me question everything.
Now I want more, but I know that’s impossible.
Things aren’t always as they seem.
My true self is hidden, and that works for me.
Or it did.
I hide in a bed of deception to disguise myself, and I’m good at it.
Or I was.
I’m Elizabeth Fitzgerald.
I’m a Senator’s wife.
And I hate my life.
After a few minutes, he says, “I know there’s more to you, Elizabeth. I can tell there’s someone hidden inside you dying to come out. I can see it in the fake smile you show everyone, including Cal, the way you frown when you’re alone in your thoughts, and the sadness that’s lurking in your eyes. Why are you hiding?”
God help me, but there’s something in the way he speaks to me that makes me want to lay all my secrets and sins bare. He’s soft and gentle, but most importantly, I believe he wants to know more about me. He’s not asking to gain leverage or use it to his advantage, he’s genuinely concerned. And it makes me want to tell him everything. But the rational side of my brain tells me not to, so I reel in this strange impulse to divulge my secrets to a man I hardly know.
Rachael Duncan is an Army wife living in North Carolina with her husband and two kids. She grew up in Nashville, Tennessee and went on to graduate from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville with a bachelor’s degree in political science. After working on Capitol Hill for a short time, she realized that a career in politics just wasn’t for her. A couple years later, she rediscovered her love for reading and writing. She’s the author of Tackled by Love as well.
- Name 2 of your all time favorite authors?
Just two?! There are so many talented authors out there that I love, but the first two that popped in my head are Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher. I don’t even read the synopsis when I see they’ve published a book, I just one-click it. Their writing and storytelling are amazing, but in completely different ways. They inspire me in so many ways as a writer, and I’m in awe of them as a reader.
- If you could take a character from any book and make them a real person who and what book would you pick and why?
It’s an oldie, but a goodie…Travis “Maddog” Maddox. Do I really have to explain why? He was my very first book boyfriend.
- IF you were stranded on an island and you could take only 1 book with you which would you take and why?
A survival book because I have absolutely no outdoor/survival skills. I’d need all the help I could get.
- If you could murder and get away with it any character from any book who would you pick and why?
Nan from Abbi Glines’ Rosemary Beach series. God, I hate that woman. She’s a terrible, selfish person who’s always causing trouble. She needs to be killed off.
I don’t watch a whole lot of TV, but right now I’m hooked on Pretty Little Liars. Who is A?!?!
