Chapter One

If only she could say he loved her, the toothpaste wouldn't matter.

Neither would the late hours. Neither would the baby -

No, the baby mattered.

"I want a baby," Beth told her sister. "It all comes back to that."

"Write it down," Anne ordered, turning over the dining-car flyer on their breakfast table and sliding the blank page across the white tablecloth. "If you want to straighten things out with Rafe, you need to know exactly what the problem is."

He doesn't love me!

But she couldn't bring herself to say that aloud.

"He doesn't want a baby," Beth said instead. Which amounted to the same thing. "I know we agreed to wait until the legal clinic was up and running, but that's taking a lot longer than I expected."

"Write it down," her twin repeated, handing over a pencil, and Beth dutifully jotted "doesn't want baby" on the paper. "When was the last time you talked about it?"

"Friday. The night before I left to meet you." The night before her and Anne's annual "Sisters' Vacation," she had accused her husband of caring more about Tucson's street kids than having kids of his own.

And he hadn't denied it.

"What happened?" Anne asked, and Beth gritted her teeth against the tip of the pencil.

"Nothing. I was kind of hoping he'd get mad, get upset, say I was wrong." If he had lost his temper, sworn at her in the same gutter-style Spanish he used with the former gangbangers who occasionally phoned the house, she could have taken comfort in knowing his emotions were fully engaged. "But he just said the clinic's not all the way there yet, and we have plenty of time."

"Twenty-six isn't exactly over the hill," her sister observed. "And Rafe's, what, twenty-eight? But okay, there's problem number one. What else?"

"Isn't that enough?" Beth protested, just as the waiter arrived with their breakfast order. She wished they could send him away, finish this conversation without the distraction of mushroom omelets and rye toast, but of course the fun of eating in a dining car was why they'd taken the train from Los Angeles back to Tucson.

Back to the husband who didn't want her.

Or at least not nearly as much as she wanted him.

"I still can't believe you decided to leave your wedding ring home," Anne told her, eyeing the clad-dagh ring she'd loaned Beth when she found her crying over the vacancy a few nights ago. "And didn't even mention it! Bethie, you need to talk about things more."

Maybe so, but she couldn't expect her sister to fix her problems. Taking care of people was Beth's strong point, while Anne took care of everything else.

Besides, she'd hoped that a week away from Rafe would settle the turmoil inside her.

"I just thought," she muttered, "I could try pretending we'd never gotten married, and see how it felt."

"But it feels sad, doesn't it?"

Which pretty well summed up her problem. Leaving the wedding ring in her jewelry box had been a foolish gesture, and the loan of her sister's ring hadn't made her finger feel any less forlorn.

"You have to talk things out," Anne continued.

"Forget this new-look stuff, that's not what you need. Not that you don't look wonderful -"

"You're only saying that because I look like you."

Her sister grinned, acknowledging the point. With Beth's brand-new haircut, they looked more alike than they had in years. "Strawberry blondes are better with short curls, that's all there is to it. But anyway, talking to Rafe would be the fastest way to fix things. I mean, if you want to stay married."

"That's what's so embarrassing!" She still wanted him as her husband, and a whole week of vacation hadn't made any difference in that fierce, heartfelt yearning for Rafe Montoya. "What kind of woman wants a husband who doesn't need her?"

Anne hesitated, gazing at her coffee cup before meeting her gaze with an uncomfortable expression. "Bethie, I know you've got this thing about taking care of people, but being needed isn't the same thing as being loved."

Maybe such statements made sense for a career woman who didn't understand the essentials of love, but Anne was completely wrong. "That's what marriage is about!"

Her sister thought that over long enough for Beth to realize there was no comfortable solution to be found, then tapped the page on the table with her usual executive determination.

"You need a list of pros and cons," she announced. "Reasons to stay married, and reasons to get divorced. Come on, write it down."

"But ..." What if the reasons for divorce outweighed the reasons for marriage? And how on earth had she and Anne traded roles so quickly, when normally she was the one taking care of her sister? "I don't want to give up on him yet."

"That goes in the pro column," Anne ordered, taking another sip of her coffee. "What else do you like about him?"

It wasn't a question of liking him, though. It was more a matter of loving him.

And suspecting he would never love her.

"Come on," her sister prompted. "Is he smart, handsome, rich, charming, good in bed -"

"Anne!" They were in the middle of a dining car, with people all around them, and here she was asking about Rafe in bed?

"Good-looking, punctual, courteous, good athlete -"

"All of that," Beth interrupted hastily, trying to dismiss the memory of his athletic body pressed against hers. At least while making love to her, Rafe Montoya could be wonderfully free with his emotions. "Well, except rich. He's still paying back his student loans, and the legal clinic won't ever make big money."
