Extra info for A Matter of Temptation (Lost Lords, Book 2)
We slept all night outside the University of Illinois English Building on the lawn with four hundred other kids—a protest led by Jack himself to protect that elegant Stanford White structure from being torn down and replaced with a window-less seventies box. He walked me through the building that night, before the protest. It was still open. Professors were working late in their offices; a few night classes were still in session. “This was built as a woman’s dorm,” he told me. I looked into his hazel eyes.
The girls think the car is the most glamorous they’ve ever seen. They are proud to squeeze into its low frame, and love it when Daniel puts the leathery-golden top down. It’s down today. He double-parks and comes to the door, rings the bell in the unique way that says it’s him: two rings in a row. All this to drive them only twelve blocks. “Daddy’s here,” I call to the girls. When I open the door, I am struck, as I usually am, by his length, his grace and ease. A natural basketball player. He blinks his long, blond-lashed eyes, and takes off his baseball cap.
Why did he say he’d be home after work and not come back until eleven? Why did I discover matches from some “club” in his jacket after a business trip when he’d told me the meeting had ended early and he’d stayed in his hotel room all night watching TV? I always asked, and he always had explanations. Calm, annoyed explanations, like how dare I doubt him! He picked up the matches in the hotel room. Someone had left them there. He was working on ideas for a challenging new product, and he needed “alone time” at his office.
