One common request I've gotten from readers over the years is to make my heroes GROVEL MORE, LONGER, HARDER. I can't say I was able to to do that with MIB 2 but I think Anneke and Marcus have spent the LONGEST TIME APART among my couples (even longer than Kyr and Pollyanna), and that in itself is torture of sorts when you're the one who made a mistake (aka Marcus), don't you think?
Anyway, here's another sneak peek. It's coming along now, but I really don't want to rush things. Sorry! > . <
P.S. The Scientist from 50 Shades Darker is another song in my MIB 2 Playlist.
Her phone kept ringing even by the time she made it to her family’s winter chateau. His calls only stopped when it was nearing midnight, but a moment later she realized it was simply because he had changed tactics.
Her phone had vibrated again, and this time it was Marcus texting her.
God, he was so damn cunning.
Phone calls Anneke had enough self-discipline to ignore, but a text message was so much harder to resist…
Only fifteen seconds had passed before she succumbed, and she started reading his message.
Marcus: I’m sorry about today. But I am not taking back what I said. I love you.
Marcus: Please let me call you.
Marcus: I know you’re reading my messages. Tell me, what must I do so you would at least talk to me?
Marcus: And yet you already replied, amore mio.
