Excerpt from Behind the Mask (Chapter 13):
“He bought me a cup of hot chocolate,” she said. Just the notion of it nauseated Liam. “Which was nice, but I have to be honest, he’s kind of creepy,” she added. Her assessment was dead on if she only knew the half of it. Liam was having a hard time hiding his contempt, and she picked up on it. “What exactly is your connection to him?” she quizzed. “Because he said you two sort of work together but also said he doesn’t design ships.”
He grabbed another cookie then leaned against the kitchen counter. He appeared to have no qualms about the fact that he was only wearing boxers. Of course, he’s never lacked in the confidence department. “I’ve done a couple of side projects for Charles; that’s all.”
“I take it you don’t like him very much,” she perceptively commented. She took a cookie off the plate and nonchalantly hopped up onto the counter. He watched in awe as she made herself comfortable then replied, “You could say that.”
“He also made a reference to the fact that he thought you and I knew each other for longer than just a few days,” she said. “Why would he think that?”
“Cause he’s an idiot!” Liam snapped. She laughed. “Maybe but it just seemed odd.”
“Charles was more than likely just trying to make conversation with you. He’s not exactly subtle when it comes to a pretty woman.”
That off the cuff remark made her smile. “You think he was hitting on me?”
“Well I’m not interested, he’s too old for me, and he gives off a weird vibe.”
Excerpt from UNMASKED (Chapter 3):
Remi scanned the waiting area, taking special note of the numerous awards strewn along the one wall. His mother was incredibly accomplished, making her all the more intimidating. “Hello, Miss Catalano, I’m Penny Matthews,” she announced, extending her right hand. Remi gazed upon the statuesque woman standing in front of her. “Hi,” Remi squeaked out, shaking Penny’s hand then instantly observing her blue-green eyes. They were unmistakably identical to Liam’s. She was absolutely gorgeous, which wasn’t surprising considering how her son looked. Dressed in a long navy blue skirt with a crisp white fitted blouse, and her dirty blonde hair clipped up in a loose bun, she much more resembled a supermodel than a lawyer. “Please, come into my office,” she said, waving Remi inside. And once in, Remi immediately spotted an eight by ten picture frame sitting on a large mahogany desk. It was a photo of Liam, a younger Liam that is. Penny watched Remi’s eyes gravitate towards it and decided not to prolong the inevitable conversation. “He was sixteen there,” she said, picking it up and handing it to Remi, who couldn’t resist smiling, not just because he looked so young, it was just actually seeing his face again.
“So, you’re the one who was involved in that shooting—with my son.” Remi nervously nodded, all the while unable to avoid staring at the photo. “I’m sure he’s told you that he and I aren’t exactly on the best of terms.”
“To be honest, Mrs. Matthews,” said Remi. “He didn’t say much about you.”
“Please, call me Penny.”
Remi smiled shyly, “Okay.”
