The Substitute Guest
“He had staked his life. . . . Would they make it in time. . .or would there be three lives lost instead of one?”
Alan Monteith can’t make up his mind about Demeter Cass. She’s beautiful and captivating, but she’s interested in all the things that he’s not. So when his good friend is in a fix, Alan jumps at the chance to help. . .and to avoid making any decisions about seeing Demeter. But hours later, his car breaks down in the snow and it seems he may not be able to keep his promise. . . .
Daryl Devereaux is looking forward to a peaceful holiday at home with her close-knit family until Alan Monteith shows up on their doorstep, anxious to take a bottle of medicine to a sick woman who lives farther up the mountain. Daryl’s brother offers to go with Alan, and the two men head into the growing storm on foot.
Left behind to watch and wait, Daryl finds herself praying as much for her brother as for the handsome young stranger who arrived so unexpectedly, never realizing that evening will change both their lives forever.
