She squared her shoulders. “I think it would be best if you stay at the Black Bear Resort. Are you familiar with it?”
“I read about it online, but it’s not what I’m looking for.”
“Given your lifestyle, I’d say it’s perfect for you. This place would probably be too quiet.” The thought of passing on a paying guest caused her stomach to sour, but having Luke Beckett under her roof was worth a couple of late fees on the already mountainous stack of outstanding bills.
Luke’s expression turned solemn. “I don’t want to go into details, but I’ve come to Whispering Slopes to get away from the spotlight. I need to stay somewhere that’s quiet, and where I won’t be recognized.”
Was he in some sort of trouble? She couldn’t take any chances with the triplets.
Luke half laughed. “Don’t worry, I haven’t committed any crime.” He paused and ran a hand across his unshaven chin. “I just need a break—that’s all.”
For a second, a twinge of sympathy filled Meg’s heart. She nodded and swallowed hard. “I’ll admit, I can relate to that.”
“Thank you. I promise to stay out of your way in the coming weeks.”
Weeks. She’d never agree to that. One or two nights maybe…but weeks? “Exactly how long do you plan to stay?”
“Six weeks—maybe longer.” His eyes bored into her.
Meg wrapped her arms tight around her slim waist. “I’m not sure that’s going to work. Besides, can you take off that much time?”
“Let’s just say it’s a forced vacation. Look, I know I’m the last person you want as a guest, but I’ll pay anything. You said some of the rooms are closed for repairs. I’ll cover the loss you’re taking—please. I’m begging you.”
Meg considered his plea. Was there more to this than an extended vacation? What kind of secret was he keeping?
