Excerpt: A Groom Worth the Wait
Alexis hesitated. “When do you start production?”
Nathan didn’t want to pressure her, either by words or deeds, but how could he make their documentary irresistible to her? Why should she choose their project over Wes’s much more lucrative one?
Why should she choose him over Wes?
“Production starts as soon as we can get a D.P.” Nathan spread his hands. “We’re anxious to release the doc this fall. Next year, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum will celebrate the one-hundredth anniversary of the founding of the Negro National Leagues. We want our project to be part of that celebration. Are you interested?”
“I’d need to leave by the beginning of July.” Alexis’s eyes narrowed as though she was picturing her work schedule. “I’ll need time to prepare to leave for Benin with the other production crew at the end of the month.”
“That’s plenty of time. This is only the beginning of May.”
“There’s no give in my schedule, Nate.” Alexis pinned him with a warning look. “I’d need to leave, whether or not your production’s done.”
Holding her gaze, Nathan leaned into the table and lowered his voice. “Lexi, what’s holding you back?”
Alexis considered him for several silent beats. “Not what; you. I still have reservations about working with you.”
That stung. Nathan sat back. “We’re not twenty-somethings anymore.”
“Age doesn’t guarantee wisdom.” Alexis chuckled. Her smile warmed her features, brightened her eyes – and stole a large chunk of his heart.
Nathan took a moment to refocus. “Do you trust me?”
Alexis tilted her head. “I don’t know you.”
“That’s about to change.”
