Read an Excerpt

He wants to marry me.

Despite her initial shock at his bumbled proposal, Darby Conrad found that Johns Sparks' words warmed her, touched her in a way she was helpless to explore just then. He was so earnest, so determined that she couldn't help but be drawn to him, long to kiss him. If not for the panic swirling through her bloodstream along with a thousand other jumbled emotions. Panic caused not by the thought of marrying him, of becoming Mrs. John Sparks, but fear that he was serious. That he intended to take this ridiculous idea of his and run with it.

"John…I think you and I need some time to adjust before either of us says anything we don't mean."

His jaw flexed, making her itch to inch her palm along the strong length of it. To press her mouth there, against his freshly shaven skin and drink in the tangy taste of him at her leisure. "I don't need time, Darby. I know how I feel. I know what I need to do. And nothing you can say is going to stop me."

Something tickled her chest from the inside. "We're not teenagers, John. When something like this happens, you don't have to get married. There are alternatives now."

His eyes narrowed.

"No, no, I didn't mean that alternative. I'm…I'm going to go through with this."
The relief on his face was so complete even she felt it rush through her body then warm her all over.

"Time," he said pensively. "If it's time you want, Darby, then it's time I'm going to give you. But I promise you, no matter how long it takes, you are going to marry me."

    deep romantic triangle

    Erick Conrad died heroically as a firefighter in a tragic blaze. He left behind a wife Darby and twin six-year-old daughters. Nine months after his death, Darby and Erick¿s best friend Old Orchard County, Ohio Sheriff John Sparks share one night of passion as both sought solace in the other¿s arms due to mourning their loss. Afterward and feeling guilty, John and Darby agree to cool their romance. Three months later, Darby informs John that she is pregnant. Initially taken aback, John wants to do the right thing for Darby, the two girls, and their unborn child. He proposes marriage, but Darby retains feelings of betraying Erick. Besides she knows marriage needs more than his willingness to take culpability and his feelings of responsibility to hold it together. However, John always desired Darby, but hid his feelings when his buddy pursued her. He loves her and Erick¿s kids, but can she really hear his heart when she believes she was unfaithful to Erick and must force herself to ignore her own love for the sheriff? WHAT A WOMAN WANTS is a deep romantic triangle in which the third participant is the convergent memories of a loved one. The story line has been used before, but feels fresh because Tori Carrington does not demean any of the three key players to make a second chance at love easier to attain. John and Darby seem human with strengths and frailties and their memories of Erick paint a picture of a caring individual. Readers will delight in this warm contemporary romance from Team Carrington who seem to consistently know what the audience wants. Harriet Klausner
