It’s my first foray into audiobooks… and wow! Hearing your story come alive, in someone else’s voice, is pretty amazing 🙂
I have the draft chapters to review, and then it can go into final production. I don’t have a release date yet, but I’m hoping some time in July – I’ll let you know.
In the mean time, here’s a snippet for you.
“Have fun with Molly. Thanks for saving my customer. Natalie.” He heard the smile in Sian’s voice, as she deciphered the writing. “Would that be Natalie in the Auckland office? The account manager? What’s her surname… Fountain?”
“Fontaine.” His voice was gruff. “Natalie Fontaine.” Warmth bloomed in his chest. It was just a gesture; it sure as hell didn’t mean anything. But yeah, it was nice of her.
Sian was speaking, and he hastened to listen. “What did you do for her, Lucas?”
“Oh, just a bit of juggling. Nothing much.” He didn’t mind Sian as much as the others—she wasn’t quite so irritating—but he still didn’t feel like chatting to her about Natalie Fontaine or why she’d sent him a thank you present. Would Sian take the hint and leave?
It seemed not. “She’s the one with the French accent, isn’t she?”
She has the most beautiful voice in the world. “Does she? I hadn’t noticed.”
Helpful Dave decided to join in. His head popped up like a meerkat’s.
“Natalie Fontaine? She likes talking to Lucas. Does she know about—”
“About what?” Lucas cut him off mid-sentence. “About what, Dave?” The challenge had been issued, the gauntlet thrown down. “About the fact that I work damn hard and do a good job?” He curled his fingers around the edges of his keyboard.
Silence hung between them. Sian was the first to crack. “I’ve got…uh…a meeting. Catch you later.”
He could feel Dave staring at him over the partition. Go on. Say it. Does she know I’m as good as blind? A fuckin’ cripple? Say it.
Dave cleared his throat. “Nothing, mate. I can’t remember what I was talking about.”
Seeing the Love
Lucas Wade is losing his sight. As the darkness threatens to swamp him, the one bright spot in his day comes in the form of Natalie Fontaine. She works in the sales office, hundreds of miles away, and she alone treats him like a regular guy. She has no idea about his disability, and he doesn’t plan on telling her about it.
But if Lucas can’t be honest with her, Natalie may never see the love he has to offer.
