@ Chapter 01
Same time of year, just many more later, and Grady is now 31 and known as the Amesport Beast. We also find out that all of the Sinclair children have come to live on the Amesport Peninsula. So at least they are all sticking together as far as where they built their houses. It doesn’t appear that any of them, except Grady spend any time at home.
We are introduced to the heroine, Emily Ashworth and her BFF Miranda “Randi” Tyler. Emily is the director of the YCOA and her ex has made off with all the center’s funds, and right before Christmas! She has no choice but to seek a large donation from the only person in residence with that kind of cash. So cue the Beauty and the Beast soundtrack cause that’s what this story is shaping up to be.
On the way to The Beast’s Lair, she notes the location is one of her favorites and proceeds to eat shit due to the snowy conditions. I totally feel for the girl! I am so accident prone myself.
A mix up turns into an offer she can’t refuse, because, hey, it’s for the children! And, ok, Grady is hot and lights Emily’s fire, so it’s a win, win situation!
What would you do if you were in Emily’s position?
