Read an Excerpt

As he had known, she was in the living room. She wore a pretty, soft pink dress with a full skirt that swirled around her calves as she swayed in time to the classical music filling the air. The heels she wore highlighted her legs, which were very nice.

Her eyes were closed so she wasn't aware of him. He stood in the doorway, unable to look away from her. Her movements were as graceful and sweeping as a dancer's. His gaze shifted to her hands. He imaged them caressing his cheeks as she leaned in to touch her mouth to his.

She opened her eyes suddenly, saw him, gasped, and came to an abrupt stop. "Mr. Jordan! I ... I didn't hear you. How ... how long have you been standing there?"

He found her breathless voice rather attractive. How would it sound whispering something soft and sweet to him?

"Only for a few moments."

"Why didn't you say something?"

"I didn't want to startle you." Noting how lovely she looked, he suddenly wished he had shaved and worn a pair of dress pants.

"And yet you did."

"Sorry." He strolled into the room. "My mother sent me to entertain you while she and Carolyn finish dinner."

"Oh."

"Can I get you anything?"

She shook her head. "Ah, no. I had some of your mother's excellent lemonade ten minutes ago."

For a moment, they stood in silence, staring at each other.

"I didn't expect to see you here. I understood from your mother that it would be just the two of us for dinner."

"And I thought it would be just Mom, Carolyn and me."

She looked dismayed. "Oh. Then you wouldn't have come if you known I'd be here."

He shook his head. "I didn't say that."

"You didn't need to. I know how youfeel." She glanced over her shoulder toward the kitchen. "I wish your mother had told me you'd be here." She sounded and looked irritated.

"I get the feeling you wouldn't have come if you'd known Carolyn and I would be here."

Her response was quick and ego deflating. "You're right. I wouldn't have come."

He frowned. "Why not?"

She stared at him, her dark eyes narrowed. "I think you know the answer to that question."

"No, I don't."

"I'm sure you can figure it out with a little effort. In the meantime, I'm going home."

"No!" The word was forced out of his mouth before he could stop it.

She stared at him. "What?"

"You're here now, and Mom is sure to have cooked enough food for at least ten people."

"Maybe so, but this isn't what I expected when I agreed to come to dinner." She scooped her handbag up from the sofa. "Would you explain to your mother that I had to go?"

"No, I won't."

She shrugged. "Fine. I'll explain myself the next time I see her." She left the living room.

He could hear her heels clinking on the tiles in the hallway. Moments later, he heard her struggling to open the deadbolt lock on the front door.

He left the living room and rushed down the hall to the front door.

She turned to face him. "Would you help me with the door? I can't seem to figure out how to unlock it."

"I think you've misunderstood. I--"

"Are you going to unlock the door for me?"

He shook his head. "Not until you hear me out."

She turned back to the door, stared at both locks in silence for several moments, and finally managed to get the door open. She quickly went through, closing it behind herself.

He pulled the door open.

In her haste to get away from him, she was practically running down the sidewalk.

"Diana! Wait!" He followed her out of the house. Uncaring of the neighbors sitting on front porches watching, he reached out, caught her hand in his, and bought her to a reluctant stop. He turned her to face him. The sight of tears in her eyes stunned him. "Hey! Don't cry."

    Proceed with Caution...

    I began reading Marilyn Lee's books last year and they have never disappointed. But...Eye of the Beholder is not your typical Marilyn Lee romance novel. Keeping in mind that it is a religious/spiritual romance, I was hoping that it would a great read. The heroine (Diana) was so determined to find a God-fearing man and have that man be her hero (David) that she tried to force her religious beliefs and faith on (David) in the hopes that he would learn to accept his personal tragedy without questioning and doubting his faith. When a person loses a loved one, he or she has to find their own way...without strong influences that they may not be ready for. Also, the story lacked passion and dragged on. So, again...proceed with caution.

    Eye of the Beholder (Spiritual Based IR Love Story)

    Marilyn Lee is a great writer/Author. This was one of the first books I read by Marilyn Lee and I liked it. I do, however, agree with the first reviewer that a person should "proceed with caution" as it will depend upon the individual reader ("good" or "bad" read). The main character, Diane in the beginning was a bit much to take, but David's character was interesting...and it all came together in the end. I do recommend other Marilyn Lee books, as I mentioned above...after reading this I purchased other Marilyn Lee books and was very surprised and delighted with her style of writing from one extreme to the other. Google Marilyn Lee and you will be surprised by her writing style and depth of characters in her books.

    238 pages of christian love

    This was a sweet love story. I thought the daughter was way too out spoken and should have been told to shut up. I think that diane threw her self at david and it made me feel ackward how many times/ ways can a man say no before you take a hint? After he became interested it got good though. Actually diane annoyed me she was desparate clingy and too forward where was her pride? IT was well written and i liked the christian influence it wasnt overwelming.
