Kelli Delaney spent the last year planning for the perfect wedding. What she didn't plan for was getting to the altar and not having a groom there waiting for her. Dumped and pissed, Kelli decides she's still going to have her honeymoon and eat her cake too.
When she happens upon an old college friend, Will Robertson, in her mess of a state, old memories and emotions flood her mind. On impulse she decides to invite him to the cabin.
Will Robertson can't believe his luck. After years of secretly desiring Kelli, she walks back into his life. Not only to resume their friendship, but more importantly to have him fulfill her sexual needs. However, Kelli doesn't know what she is asking him.
Not only must he put his feelings for her on the line, but also has to reveal a darker, wicked side of his nature that sweet, innocent Kelli could never imagine. When she agrees to allow him to pleasure her over a long weekend, the way he has always fantasized about, he realizes it may shatter him to let her go when their time is up.
To Have and To Hold is a short story about finding new beginnings and taking second chances. Kelli is ready to walk down the isle when she is told that her groom isn't waiting for her. After leaving the church behind, she realizes that she is more relieved than upset and decides to go to her honeymoon cabin and enjoy herself for the first time in years. Along the way, Kelli runs into an old friend and invites him to join her.
Will has loved Kelli from afar since he first got to know her in college, but she was engaged to someone else and he never took the chance to steal her away. Finding her in a small restaurant after her wedding falls apart is sheer coincidence…or perhaps fate?
Ms. Hines has written a moving story about two people destined to be together. Her characters have plenty of chemistry, the plot is interesting with some mild BDSM elements and it was an easy read. There were a few grammatical errors, but overall it was quite entertaining.
