“Short-term, hot fling staying at your house?”
She couldn’t help the smile. “Not lately. As far as I remember. If there’s one there now, it’s because he found out where I hide the key.”
Rachael Herron, Love on Main Street

“Why did some people hear the voice, loud and clear, while others just floated from thing to thing, from person to person, never completely fitting in, never entirely at home.”
Rachael Herron, Eliza's Home

“That man loved me so hard I knew I’d never do half of what I should to deserve it. And that was the point. He said I never had to do a thing to make him love me. He just did. He just loved me.”
Rachael Herron, Eliza's Home
