In this snippet from Tremors, my time-travel romance, Deidre and Lachlann are parked on the side of the road, in the middle of a pine forest. He is hedging, wondering where he stands with her and if he dare tell her the truth about himself.
She stared at him a moment longer. Everything about him spoke of honor, of goodness. He wasn’t a criminal.
She shook her head. “You haven’t.” (done something wrong)
He tilted his head slightly, watching her carefully. “You’re sure about that?”
“As sure as I can be. I trust you.”
He drew a deep breath. “I trust you, too.”
She laid a hand on his arm. “Lachlann, if you’ve made a mistake, I’ll help you. We’ll fix it together. If necessary, we’ll fight together.”
“You’d fight for me?”
