“Mira-mine, I’m disappointed in you,” Nicholas responded with mock severity. “There’s only one logical explanation.”
He winked at her.
Thanks to the Lit Girls and Peter Hawkinson. You have all given me support and encouragement through some tough times. I couldn’t have stuck with it without you. And a special thank you to my editor, Erin Molta, who has put a tremendous amount of work and love into this manuscript.
