About No Stone Unturned:
The enemies of my past are everywhere.
My demons are trying to take over me but for the first time in my life, I have something worth fighting for.
I let her go once, but I’ll be damned if it ever happens again.
I begged her to have faith, now she’s finally ready to take a leap with me.
I will be here to catch her with open arms.
This is our time.
This is our life.
This is our love.
I will leave NO STONE UNTURNED to keep her safe from harm.
She is MINE. Now and forever.
Alexandra slides the balcony door open. The cool night air drifts in and blows the curtains in a ripple. She steps out, grabs the rails, and turns her head skyward. Her green dress and the hair down her back float like the curtains. I follow Alexandra’s footprints in my rug out into the night…and her.
I slide my hands over her shoulders and slowly down her arms. “Would you tell me what you’re thinking? Are you regretting coming up here?”
Her head lowers. “No. Not even a little.”
I know she has more to say, so I let the noise of the city fill the silence between us until she continues. “I had a dream once I never told you about. I had a conversation with Lainey. It was in a place just like this.”
That admission hits my heart in an unexpected way. “You did?”
“Julian, when we were in Savannah, it was not the time to talk about her or ask questions unless you did. I know some of the loss you feel. I watched my dad. I felt things myself. The things that were most important to me then, and still are now, are that you are ready and that you know I would never, and will never, try to take her place. I want you to feel like you can share her with me. Knowing her will only allow me to know you better.
“I’ve thought that for a long time. So, much like I talked to my mother at the Falls, I talked to her in my alone time in Savannah. Being here, now, closes that chapter for me. I knew I would know if it wasn’t right the minute I stepped in here. My anxiety is gone.” She turns her head, so her chin touches her right shoulder. “I can breathe.”
God she’s stunning. Inside and out.
About Turn To Stone:
I needed to repair the cracks in the foundation of my soul.
Find the strength to overcome.
I needed a new city. A new job.
Something that would take me away from everything and everyone
that chained me down in my past.
He needed the same things as I did, but his nightmares were bleeding into everything he touched.
He was living his dream by day, and haunted by his past at night.
For the first time in my life, I wanted to leap head first into the unknown.
And when I did, he caught me.
We could be the key to tearing down the walls within ourselves.
Together, our broken parts could finally be made whole.
