Sawyer and Royce: Matrimony and Mayhem, Book 3
Excerpt From Killer Honeymoon:“She reached into her purse and pulled out two envelopes. One was addressed to Sawyer and the other to Lucky Bastard. She gripped them tightly in her hands instead of offering them to Sawyer and Royce. “I’d recognize that handwriting anywhere,” Sawyer said, a gentle smile curving his lips. “When did Vic write these?” Imelda swallowed hard, and the brimming tears spilled down her cheeks. Royce pulled her in for a tight hug and whispered that she’d done the right thing. Imelda nodded against his chest and allowed Royce to comfort her for a few moments before she eased back. “Soon after his diagnosis,” she told Sawyer. “Vic accepted his fate much sooner than we did. He’d devoted all his extra energy to ensuring his parents and husband would be okay.” “Selfless,” Royce said. Imelda nodded. “Maddeningly so at times.” She took a shaky breath and extended the envelopes to Royce and Sawyer, who accepted them immediately. “Promise kept,” she whispered toward the heavens before meeting their gazes. Imelda’s smile came easier, and her spirit seemed lighter as if an enormous weight had been lifted from her thin shoulders. “There’s no pressure from me to read the letters now or ever, okay?” Royce and Sawyer nodded. “I’ll see you both tomorrow.” Imelda kissed both their cheeks before leaving.” They stared at the letters in their hands for a few moments before locking eyes. Sawyer swallowed hard and said, “Should we read them now?” Royce shook his head. “We’ll be late.” He held out his empty hand to Sawyer. “Trust me?” Sawyer placed his letter on Royce’s open palm. “Always.” Royce carefully folded the envelopes and put them into his pocket for safekeeping. Then he pressed his lips to Sawyer’s for a brief kiss. “I know the perfect spot and time. We’ll read Vic’s letters together.” Sawyer smiled. “Like we do everything.”
