She closed her eyes briefly. He did mean something else. She closed the door thankfully behind her, knowing it was pointless even trying to explain to Gideon what had happened just now; he didn't seem to believe a word she said anyway. Crys, of all people, could have no idea how much Molly had dreaded seeing him again. Apart from mentioning their unforgettable first meeting, of course! Well, we could definitely have done without this at the moment,' he muttered tensely. Molly looked up at him sharply, expecting to see the normal derision in his gaze, but instead she found him looking at her quizzically, his thoughts unreadable.
The publisher does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Molly followed slowly behind Crys and Sam. Especially as she was wearing a shade of pink that clashed with her red hair! There was complete silence in the car for several long seconds, and then Gideon gave a sigh. And Molly wanted him to remain that way.

And he was gorgeous, no doubt about that — over six feet of lethal attraction.
Besides, it had only been one measly bottle of white wine—not the whole crateful Gideon Webber seemed to be implying! She would just never, ever have thought that Gideon Webber would like him, too. David chuckled, shaking his head as he looked at Crys. In fact, she was more than pleased to have something to do. Added to which, she didn't even like him. Ìn fact, I introduced him to Crys,' she added wistfully.
And if she didn't open the door Sam was going to think it very odd. Ì know Peter isn't feeling so good, but they still need to eat,' she added ruefully. Ànd there's baby Peter, too, of course. Merlin, Sam's Irish Wolfhound and Peter James's guardian from the very first day the baby had arrived home from the hospital where he had been born, sat forlornly on the driveway, watching their departure with the obvious intention of waiting there until they returned with his precious charge. The christening on Sunday had been a completely private family and friends affair, but the photograph in this newspaper meant that at least one member of the press had found out about it.
But that's just my personal opinion, you understand? Molly felt herself stiffen defensively as Gideon strode back into the room, his good humour restored if his grin was anything to go by. Ì wasn't sure whether or not you took sugar,' he drawled as she sat down to take a much—needed swallow of the coffee— and almost choked on it. Was it acceptable for the godmother to hit one of the godfathers at a christening party? Half an hour during which Molly's bewilderment hadn't lessened in the least. The proud parents stood in the midst of Gideon, David and Molly, and all of them were named in the caption beneath the photograph. But this time Gideon's determined to take what he still desires. Although, bearing in mind Crys's newly acquired matchmaking tendencies, Molly wouldn't put it past her friend to have deliberately left her alone here with Gideon in an effort to further their friendship.
As well as being a highly successful screenwriter, Sam was the epitome of tall, dark and handsome, and Molly had adored him from the moment she'd known her mother was to marry his father seventeen years ago. Baby Peter was lifted from the back of the vehicle by his father, and Merlin followed quickly behind him. Sam removed his hand from the mouthpiece. Molly wasn't under any illusions that the silence between them was in the least comfortable. Ordinarily it would be the normal thing to do.
David Strong and Gideon Webber, of all people. Will the promise of a holiday wedding and a perfect future erase the scars of Ivan's past…or will darker secrets ruin all they hold dear? Which, considering Molly's total awareness of him probably wasn't a good idea. Ridiculous, she admonished herself impatiently. She would just bet that he had. It also brought into question—once again—Gideon's own feelings towards Crys. I don't want anything to spoil that. Molly moved gratefully away from Gideon to join David as he followed Crys from the kitchen.
But she knew, in their present circumstances, she would be hard-pressed to say the right thing where Gideon was concerned. Or it might be a jacket and skirt. He intends only to heal her then walk away again, but their explosive passion can't be denied. Sam was often able to tell what she was thinking before she was aware of it herself. That wasn't quite what Molly had meant by her question. Even a surreptitious glass of champagne to give her an extra boost! She had been dreading today anyway, ever since Crystal had told her who Peter's two godfathers were to be.
