The first thing I noticed about the man guarding the cake at my brother’s wedding reception was his skill with a makeup brush – how he’d accentuated his eyes with glitter. Those eyes. They beckoned, yet when I accepted their invitation, the man behind them turned away. Hmmm…intriguing.
Who is he?
Why is he here? Uncovering the stranger’s secrets might spell trouble, but I’m willing to take a Chance.
