A Groom Worth the Wait: Meet the Bridegrooms, Novella 3
Three confirmed bachelors get a second chance with their one true love …
For this groom, a trip to the altar is all about timing …
Old resentments are reawakened and secret desires rekindled when a cautious film director convinces his impetuous college crush to work with him on the project of his dreams.
For his documentary, cautious film director Nathan Fletcher wants to work with only the best. Unfortunately, the independent film industry’s best director of photography is his college rival, Alexis Robicheaux. Despite his reticence to reunite with his college nemesis and secret crush, Nathan bows to pressure from his two business partners and best friends to hire Alexis for their production. But when Alexis refuses his offer, he doesn’t know whether to take the rejection professionally – or personally.
Impetuous director of photography Alexis Robicheaux knows from past experience that Nathan is bad news. He’s arrogant, stubborn – and dangerously appealing. Besides, she has a much better job offer from a much less aggravating client. But when Nathan practically shows up on her doorstep to plead his case in person, old resentments go up in smoke and caution goes out the window.
If Nathan and Alexis can set aside their creative differences to work together, can they also find the courage to claim a love that’s worth the wait?
Excerpt: A Groom Worth the Wait: Meet the Bridegrooms, Novella 3
Alexis hesitated. “When do you start production?”
Nathan didn’t want to pressure her, either by words or deeds, but how could he make their documentary irresistible to her? Why should she choose their project over Wes’s much more lucrative one?
Why should she choose him over Wes?
“Production starts as soon as we can get a D.P.” Nathan spread his hands. “We’re anxious to release the doc this fall. Next year, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum will celebrate the one-hundredth anniversary of the founding of the Negro National Leagues. We want our project to be part of that celebration. Are you interested?”
“I’d need to leave by the beginning of July.” Alexis’s eyes narrowed as though she was picturing her work schedule. “I’ll need time to prepare to leave for Benin with the other production crew at the end of the month.”
“That’s plenty of time. This is only the beginning of May.”
“There’s no give in my schedule, Nate.” Alexis pinned him with a warning look. “I’d need to leave, whether or not your production’s done.”
Holding her gaze, Nathan leaned into the table and lowered his voice. “Lexi, what’s holding you back?”
Alexis considered him for several silent beats. “Not what; you. I still have reservations about working with you.”
That stung. Nathan sat back. “We’re not twenty-somethings anymore.”
“Age doesn’t guarantee wisdom.” Alexis chuckled. Her smile warmed her features, brightened her eyes – and stole a large chunk of his heart.
Nathan took a moment to refocus. “Do you trust me?”
Alexis tilted her head. “I don’t know you.”
“That’s about to change.”
For better … or for worse?
