The buzz of the party faded into the background. He seemed tired. Nelson glanced in her direction, almost as if he had been checking for her arrival. His deep-blue gaze locked on hers. Wynter felt a jolt of heat, as if he had reached out and touched her.
When she reached him, his right hand gripped the cane until his knuckles turned white. He rotated his left hand palm up. Without thinking about it, Wynter slid hers into his. Again that jolt of heat rose from the pit of her stomach. His gaze searched her face before devouring the rest of her.
"Do I look okay?" Wynter asked with concern when he continued to look at her without saying a word.
To her surprise, he smiled lopsidedly. "You're breathtaking."
"I don't feel that way," she confided in a shaky voice. "In fact, I don't feel much like me at all."
"You do to me." Then Nelson did something that would have seemed out of place had he been anyone else, but it fit him. Lifting her hand, he pressed his lips against the backs of her fingers. "You are the loveliest woman in the room, Wynter O'Reilly. Never forget it."
