From the Heart – Excerpt
“No, sorry…that needs to go over there, by the bar area.” Daisy pointed the delivery man in the right direction and then turned back to look over the room. It was all coming together, for the most part anyway.
Suddenly frowning, she shook her head and called out, “Wait! Wait!” and hurried over to where another pair of workers were setting up the bar height tables. “They need to be spread out more. Don’t bunch them all together. People need to have room to mingle.” She showed them where each table should go, ensuring a nice traffic flow around the area and out to the deck.
Backing up to take in the whole room, she suddenly collided with a hard, unyielding body. “Oh! I’m sorry…” She turned to face the owner of the body, her hands on his chest. “Oh! It’s you.”

“It’s not that, it’s just…”
“You’ve been avoiding me.”
Daisy frowned and pulled her arms away from him, backing up a step. “I have not. You’re a busy man and I’m a busy woman. Our schedules just haven’t overlapped.” That and the fact that she had tried to time any visits to the site as early in the morning as possible in the hope of avoiding an encounter just like this one.

Besides, what I do in my leisure time is not something I generally discuss with clients.”
DB grinned mischievously. “Uh huh. You’re just chicken.”
“I’m what?” Daisy looked at him in mock outrage.
“You’re afraid to go to the club because you know I’ll be there and you can’t keep your hands off me.”
“I…I…most certainly can!”
“You had your hands all over me a second ago.” DB grinned at her.
