Her stomach flipped. Energy trilled through her.
With hands inside his pockets, he held his jacket together against the wind. “Listen, I want to apologize. I didn’t know your shop was involved in this deal. I want to be friends again. What can I do to make it right?”
But even his attractive appearance couldn’t soften her. She thrust out her chin and crossed her arms. “You can find another location to rent.”
His face pinched. “I can’t. Jack already signed the papers. Once we get the go-ahead from the City Council, the deal’s done.”
Ache burned in her chest. “Then nothing you’ll do can make it right.” She climbed the hill overlooking the entrance to the bay. The closer she got to her store, the more the wind died. The sun peeked from the milky clouds and warmed the town.
Brahms jogged next to her. “Bailey, I don’t want to fight you.”
She faced him and placed her hands on her hips. “You don’t know what you’re taking from me. My family has run this shop for four generations. Then you come in with your big business. You throw around your money and get what you want.”
“I have a secret for you.” He stepped into her space.
His eyes blazed. Bailey gulped. He was too near. Being close to him weakened her.
A partial grin slipped over his lips. “I always get what I want.” He stood straighter. “Money has nothing to do with it. And I want to be friends.”
His breath tickled her forehead. The familiar scent of his spicy cologne wafted between them. Attraction tugged at her.

Mini Tour Organized By:
An author and friend of mine recently released another book that you should check out. It is called The Little Breadwinner: War and Survival in the Salvadoran Heartland by Lucia Mann.
Synopsis: FROM 1980 TO 1992, A TURBULENT CIVIL WAR ravaged the Central American state of El Salvador, claiming the lives of approximately 75,000 Salvadorans. The Little Breadwinner is a story of tyrannized, frightened families—mostly poor peasants, indigenous peoples, and child farm workers—whose lives signified nothing to the military death squads.
Lucia Mann, who was in El Salvador at the time, recalls this vivid historical portrait of human rights violations during and after the “dirty” war between the military-led government and left-wing Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front. This brutal conflict was backed politically, economically, and militarily by the United States with CIA involvement.
Throughout these pages, you will experience intense trials of courageous survival with unforgettable characters who yearn for peace, justice, and normalcy. One of the brave women you will meet is Estella Godwin Lozano (a Waorani tribe descendant of the Amazon rain forest), who suffered terribly before her brutal demise in Laredo, Texas in 2019. She was a “little person” who became traumatically affected by the abuse perpetrated by National Guard soldiers outside her pueblo home. She heroically joined the Sandinistas (Cuban-backed guerillas) to seek revenge upon the villains of her country.
