4 Cups By Coffee Time Romance
What happens when ghost and mortal fall in love? Nothing short of upsetting the balance between heaven and hell...
Nathan McGraw thought death was bad. It's nothing to landing back on Earth or ticking off a demon. He intends to find out why Sarah Price is the only mortal who can see him, even if he has to break the laws of the hereafter.
Sarah Price isn't going to take it anymore. Not from her ex who is trying to financially destroy her. Not from her family who is making her business a circus. And certainly not from a ghost who claims she is the key to sending him back to heaven.
Sarah jumped at the sound of the familiar voice. She turned to find Nathan standing only a few feet from her.
“How long have you been watching me?”
“Why are you crying?”
Sarah wiped her eyes. “It’s nothing.”
He closed the distance between them. “What are you running from?”
Life. Heartache. Chaos. Then it dawned on her that he was referring to her jogging. “Oh, this…this is just something I do sometimes. Used to do, anyway. It makes me feel better.”
He didn’t seem convinced.
Sarah wiped her eyes again. She spied a park bench in a secluded area next to a group of trees and sat down. Nathan followed her. He crouched on one knee in front of her.
“I don’t know why you cry, and it’s not my business to ask. I sought you out today to thank you…for helping me.”
Sarah looked at him. His eyes, now a brilliant shake of something—she still couldn’t put a name to the color—were focused on her. It was a look unlike anyone had ever given her. It made her feel…
She hadn’t felt appreciated in she didn’t know how long.
“You didn’t have to go to my family’s grave,” he went on. “You didn’t have to read their epitaphs for me.”
“It wasn’t anything.”
“It was.” He touched her hand. “And I appreciate it.”
Sarah allowed his hand to remain over hers. His touch was ice cold, and any other time she would have pulled away, but today was different. Today it eased the loneliness.
Loneliness. The idea was foreign. She hadn’t even realized she was lonely, but she supposed it wasn’t out of the question, although she had no reason to be. She had her business, a bright future, good health, and now Mom and Uncle Stan.
But she still didn’t feel as though she had anyone to talk to. She’d had friends back home in Syracuse, and she’d talked to quite a few on the phone and via e-mail since she’d moved, but it wasn’t the same. Since getting divorced and moving, she had never felt more alone.
A new well of tears threatened again. For which exact reason, she wasn’t sure.
Nathan moved to sit on the bench beside her. Her never let go of her hand.
“I bought a bookstore in the middle of nowhere. I left my family, my friends, everything familiar to me.”
“Because it was my dream,” she answered matter-of-factly. “I’ve wanted to own a bookstore for…forever.”
“But why so far from your home? Didn’t you have family there?”
That set off a new brigade of tears. “Mom showed up yesterday.”
“Is that so terrible?”
“All she did was point out everything I’m doing wrong.”
“Likely because she cares about you.”
Sarah brushed away her tears with the back of her hand. She knew he was right, but it didn’t make her feel any better.
She squeezed his hand. For the first time since he’d come into her life, she was glad he was here. “Why is this all happening to me? You…I mean.”
“I could ask the same thing.”
Right again. In fact, more crazy things were happening in his life—or death—than hers.
