Chasing the Legacy
by Genie Gabriel
As she led the way up to the top floor of the house, Layla was overly conscious of Grady behind her. Of the shiver of excitement that he might be watching the sway of her hips and--
"Here we are." Layla turned and forced a smile as she pushed away the lure of falling into Grady's arms.
However, his gaze seemed focused on the magnificent telescope pointed toward the heavens. "Do you come here at night and watch the stars?"
"Sometimes." Layla tried to keep the disappointment out of her voice. Didn't Grady find her attractive?
Then he turned his full attention on her and a smile formed on his features, like the sun emerging over the eastern horizon. Layla's breath caught in her throat and her heartbeat accelerated. Like one foot had slipped into an abyss.
She stepped back, catching herself emotionally. "And that's the grand tour."
Quickly, before she decided the risk was worth taking, she moved back toward the stairs. And safety.
"What are the other rooms on this floor?" Grady followed more slowly and glanced into the open door of a room tucked into one of the turrets.
"Just...old stuff." Layla slipped between him and her old bedroom, deftly closing the door on the private world of her childhood.
Unfortunately for her peace of mind, that left Layla standing with her back to the door, facing Grady. Up close.
"Why did you leave town and not come back for so long?"

For years I've been fascinated by the puzzle of why some people collapse under life's traumas and others emerge triumphantly stronger. These triumphs of the human spirit over the ugliest of adversities became the basis for my stories. Yet my dramatic stories have always contained touches of humor, and sometimes I have great fun writing romantic comedy novellas. However, in all my stories, my passion for writing romance is an outlet for the powerful messages that people can overcome great difficulties, and true love can turn life’s heartaches into happily ever after.
