Joe couldn’t believe what Sam was telling him. “You’re kidding, right? You can’t 

possibly be serious.” 

“I am serious. Elizabeth is coming with us to the Christmas party as your date, and 

you need to get a move on so we’re not late.” 

“Absolutely not. I’m not taking a date to our employee Christmas party, especially 

her. She doesn’t even like me in that way. We’re two very different people.” 

“Well, she must like you somewhat, she agreed to go,” Sam replied as he opened 

the entryway closet, retrieved Joe’s overcoat and handed it to him.

Joe shook his head. He wasn’t quite sure what to do. He couldn’t cancel with her at 

this point in the game that would be too rude. Yet, did he have the courage to show up 

with a date at his employee Christmas party? What will they think? On the other hand, it 

wasn’t like he hadn’t considered the idea of getting to know Elizabeth better, and 

helping her realize there was more to life than work, especially after the conversation 

they shared a couple of days after Thanksgiving.

Joe followed Sam to Elizabeth’s where they impatiently waited in the entryway for 

their dates to finish getting ready. His brain anxiously worked to find a way out of the 

situation. Nothing, outside of rude, presented itself. 

The sound of footsteps caught his attention, and he glanced in that direction to find 

Elizabeth floating down the stairway, light on her feet like an angel descending from the 

sky. Her milky white skin looked soft and smooth against the bright red dress that 

hugged her thin, proportionate body. He couldn’t help but wonder how her skin might 

feel against his fingertips. Her big, bright, emerald green eyes caught his gaze. He tried 

to pull it away but it was as if she wouldn’t release him. She was absolutely 


“Elizabeth, you look lovely,” 

She smiled softly. “Thank you.” 

She retrieved her long wool coat from the entryway closet. He immediately took it 

from her hands and held it open for her. Peering over her shoulder he caught a glimpse 

of her pale, soft-looking breasts. His heart skipped a beat. Raw, primal need rushed 

through his veins. He hadn’t been this stirred up in a long time. He tore his gaze from 

her breasts as she turned toward the door to exit the house.

Joe willed the rhythm of his heartbeat back to normal as he followed behind 

Elizabeth. He wasn’t sure he’d ever seen anything so beautiful as her, descending down 

those steps toward him a minute ago. He shut his eyes for a moment, squeezing them 

tightly as if that would help to extinguish the heavenly vision of her that kept replaying in 

his mind. A vision like this would only lead to complication; he was sure of it. 

He opened the back driver’s side door of Sam’s bimmer for Elizabeth. Her jacket 

opened as she slid in, allowing him to catch a glimpse of her sexy, shapely legs. His 

heartbeat spiraled out of control again. He needed to get a hold of himself before his 

heart exploded altogether. 

He shut the door and walked around the car and entered through the back 

passenger side door. 

His friend started the car and backed out of the driveway. The banter in the front 

seat of the bimmer was nonstop between Holly and Sam. Joe simply listened to them 

and watched their interaction. He couldn’t help but notice how Sam gently held and 

caressed Holly’s hand as they rested their arms on the center counsel. They seemed so 

relaxed with each other. He wondered if he would ever hold a woman’s hand in his 

again like he did with Amanda. 

A crater the size of the Grand Canyon filled his chest. Oh how he missed her. He’d 

hoped the pain would fade with time, but there were still moments where it seemed like 

she’d been taken from him just yesterday. 

He shook his head. His thoughts shifted to Elizabeth and the party. Worry coursed 

through his veins. What are my employees going to think when they see me with 

another woman?
