They walked in silence for a moment, the jetty looming.

When they reached the start of it, Laura hopped lightly onto the rocks. “So, I never asked you. What kind of law do you practice? Real estate law?”

Jonathan shook his head. “Corporate law. Mergers, acquisitions, corporate governance, that kind of thing.”

She was fleet-footed, practically skipping from rock to rock. Jonathan followed, a little less certain of the path but determined not to fall behind. The boulders were damp and sandy, dried barnacles peppering the sides. She stopped and looked at him over her shoulder. “And Carberry Hotels is one of your clients?”

She was beautiful. She was so beautiful. And underneath the teasing, sometimes tough-girl demeanor, she was sweet, too. Everyone they’d run into during their excursion into town last night had loved her. He couldn’t understand why men weren’t lining up around the block to sweep her off her feet. If he had time for a girlfriend, he’d absolutely be the first person in line.

“Connor Carberry is my friend,” he said. “This deal is like a test case. If it goes through, the whole hotel chain could become a client.”

She cocked her head to the side, considering. “Interesting.”

“So, what about you? When the sale goes through, will you go back to school? Learn web design or software coding?”

She waved her hand dismissively. “I don’t want to talk about that right now.”

They’d reached the end of the jetty, where there was a small, unmanned lighthouse with a green light flashing from the cupola up top. A seagull dropped a crab on the rocks and swooped down to claim the meat from the shattered shell. Laura leaned back against the wall of the lighthouse, her hair wild around her face.

“What do you want to talk about?” he asked.

She gave him a teasing smile. “Tell me something about you no one else knows.”
