Matter Of Honesty, A

Author(s): Stephanie Morris

Lauryn Anderson is unemployed and struggling to make ends meet. One night away from having to move into a homeless shelter, Lauryn plans to enjoy her last night by staying in a low cost motel. The last thing Lauryn expects when she awakes is to be trapped under a tree waiting to be rescued. Steve Mitchell becomes her hero when he reaches in and pulls her to safety.

Steve Mitchell is taken by Lauryn the instant he gets her to safety. Yet, she is definitely not the type of woman he wants in his or his daughter, Hannah's life. When he realizes just how much she is struggling, he makes Lauryn an offer she can't resist--to become his housekeeper and nanny for his daughter. It isn't long before the attraction between he and Lauryn blossoms. Still, he can't help but wonder what she will do when she discovers the secret he is keeping from her.

Excerpt

She paused before speaking, giving herself some time to think. This had to be a hallucination. She was going to wake up any moment now. Although she didnt want to if it meant Steve was going to disappear. Biting her bottom lip, she was tempted to reach down to pinch herself. But if she wasnt dreaming it was going to hurt, and she did bruise easily. Then again she didnt want to pinch herself if it meant Steve was going to disappear. But figment of the imagination or not, if there was one thing she needed right now it was money.

Wanting to find out more about what he was offering before she agreed to anything, she spoke hesitantly. Im very good at cleaning and cooking. I did it for my father for years, but Im not good with animals especially the scaly kind.

Steve laughed out loud, causing a few people turned to look at them. She noticed it was a nice laugh and she would like to hear it more. Still she couldnt believe she was entertaining this idea. They were strangers. But she needed a job.

He leaned closer to her. Well I promise that cleaning my house will be a lot easier, since Im a neat person, I also dont have any pets.

She looked at him with raised eyebrows. I think you are a little old to need a nanny.

He chuckled. You are right, but my four-year-old daughter isnt.

Lauryns mouth dropped open. She couldnt hide her shock. She had to force herself to close her mouth. Daughter?

He nodded. Yes, I have a little girl. Her name is Hannah and she is a angel.

Lauryn remained quiet, not sure what to say. She looked at his hand, didnt see a ring, and he hadnt mentioned, a wife, but that didnt mean anything in todays world. A lot of men walked around without wedding rings on. But she would find out what was going on in his life relationship wise before she walked into the situation. Shed had enough surprises to last her a lifetime. Your wife wont mind will she?

He smiled. Im not married. Never have been.

Girlfriend?

He shook his head. No.

What about Hannahs mother?

He sighed. She isnt in the picture. Hasnt been for a while.

Relief flowed through her veins, to find Steve wasnt involved with another woman. Even though she might not stand a chance with him, she could see herself being jealous when it came to Steve. He was a very attractive man. Any other woman in her right mind that was dating him would probably feel the same way.
