Excerpt & More
“You’re going home.”
“No, I am not. Get that through your addled brain, honey.”
He began to huff like a bull, so Diana went to the clear plastic box, well stocked with everything a caregiver needed, and removed Linda’s stethoscope, lest his heart stop completely.
“You are taking advantage of the fact that I cannot strong-arm you into compliance, jovencita, but rest assured I will not forget this. I will not be laid up forever.”
“Your sass is duly noted.”
“I’m taking notes.”
“Uh huh. Get into bed.”
He complied, but not without a scowl and great gnashing of teeth. Diana sat on the edge of the bed and listened to his heart, then took his pulse. “Please try to breathe normally so I can get an accurate blood pressure.”
“You don’t make it easy to breathe normally, querida.”
“That’s your doing, I’m afraid.” Diana rubbed his chest in slow circles. “Come on, settle down.”
“I’m settling down. Now that I have a plan, I am quite settled.”
“Good.” She pushed his hair back off his forehead and stroked him there. “I’m furious with you.”
“I know.” For the first time since her arrival, he smiled, albeit sheepishly. “I love you.”
“I don’t believe you.”
“Hey!” Now his brows came together in one fuzzy line. She’d seen it a thousand times. “Don’t you say that to me.”
“How does a man who says he loves a woman do what you’ve done? You faked your death, Val. And then you left me on a beach in Mexico.”
“It was for your own good, Diana.”
“Keep saying it.”
“I can’t.” She stroked his cheek. “But guess what? I’ll be here, with you, until we can get out of here and go home, so you’ll have plenty of time to explain yourself and then talk me out of filing for divorce.”
“Don’t even joke about that, esposa.”
“I don’t think I’m joking.”
“You damn well better be, or I will find the strength right now to get out of this bed and give you the licking of your life.”
